South Sudanese Church urges the government to work together as partners in the Constitutional Review Process
The Sudan Council of Churches, SCC, on Tuesday wrote a pastoral letter to the National Constitutional Review Commission demanding that churches be part of the constitutional review process. The church leaders who signed the letter were from the Catholic, Episcopal, African Inland, Presbyterian and Evangelical Church. Sudan Council of Churches Chairperson Bishop Michael Taban said his organisation felt that it was important for the churches to be involved in the review process of the Transitional Constitution. National Constitution Review Commission Chairperson Akolda Man Tier said the SCC facilitated South-South dialogue and it is part of its tradition to take an active role in South Sudan. The Sudan Catholic Radio Network, CRN, quotes Mr. Tier as saying that the church leaders are in the middle of the national issues and therefore want to give their own contributions.
