Daniel Awet Akot is the Deputy Speaker of the National Legislative Assembly. He is a member of Sudan People's Liberation Movement party. He is a war veteran of the Sudan People's Liberation Army (SPLA) where he rose to the rank of lieutenant general.

Daniel Akot said that the death of rebel leader George Athor is a relief to the people of Jonglei and blamed Athor for not responding to the amnesty call of the President at the time of independence.

"We pardoned Athor three times but he rejected so the solution was to kill him because he was a national threat... Thanks God who gives and takes and we would remember the year 2011 as a great year. Athor was beyond a traitor and a Satan who was visible to the people, apart from the fact that he fought along with SPLA," said the Deputy Speaker, himself a SPLA war veteran who reached the position of a lieutenant general.|}
