MVT Yei organized the half-day workshop in response to the request of the Speaker of the Yei River State Transitional Legislative Assembly to provide a brief to State Parliamentarians on the peace agreements, obligations of the Parties under the agreements and the mission, mandate and tasks of CTSAMVM.
The legislators enthusiastically participated with questions, comments regarding the progress and obstacles of the peace process, the state of compliance of the warring parties to the agreement, and the monitoring and oversight efforts of CTSAMVM and JMEC.
At the conclusion of the workshop, the Speaker of the State Assembly thanked CTSAMVM for organizing the workshop. He said the presentation permitted the legislators to be far better prepared during their upcoming two-month recess to meet with their Yei River State constituents to discuss the peace process and the agreements that form the foundation for a successful conclusion to the seemingly interminable armed conflict.
The Speaker thanked MVT Yei for distributing copies of the Agreements and CTSAMVM branded T-shirts to the State Legislators.
He noted the need for more copies in Bari language and requested the Team to do its best to avail them as soon as possible.
