The East African Legislative Assembly (EALA), will today receive a report on how prepared the people of South Sudan are, for the forthcoming referendum.
EALA is currently holding its second meeting of the fourth session in the chambers of the Parliament of Uganda.
A fact finding mission to South Sudan, led by legislator Abdul Karim Harelimana, was appointed by the EALA Speaker at the invitation of the Southern Sudan Youth Forum for Referendum (SSYFR).
According to officials attending the session, the objectives of the visit were to, among others; create awareness among the mission’s members on the status of implementation of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA).
The report will give detailed results of the mission as well make observations and recommendations on how to hold a successful referendum in Sudan.
The January referendum will determine whether Southern Sudan can be independent from the North.
It is largely expected that once autonomous, Southern Sudan may request to join the East African Community.
