Politics

With independence on July 9, 2011, a transitional constitution came into force. According to this transitional constitution, South Sudan is a presidential republic based on separation of powers, general civil and human rights and a multi-party system. The transitional constitution was temporarily modified by a peace agreement signed in Addis Ababa in August 2015 between the southern Sudanese civil war parties. According to this, the head of state, head of government and commander in chief of the armed forces is the president, who has far-reaching powers. The first vice-president as deputy of the president is provided by the previous armed opposition. The legislature consists of two chambers, the National Legislative Assembly and the Council of States. Under the terms of the peace agreement, the number of members of the National Legislative Assembly was increased from 332 to 400. The Council of States as the representative body of the states has 50 members.

National symbols

The national flag introduced with independence in 2011 has already served as the flag of the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM). Black stands for the state-building African population. The white stripes symbolize the peace for which many sacrifices have been made. Red stands for the blood of the fighters for freedom and justice who fell in the long years of war. Green symbolizes the potential of the fertile land and vegetation. The blue triangle, its point protruding into the red stripe, is a symbol for the Nile as the source of life. The gold star in the blue triangle represents the unity of the state.

The national coat of arms shows a fish eagle with outstretched wings behind a shield with crossed spears. In his claws he holds a ribbon with the words “Republic of South Sudan”. The white tape above it shows the motto »Justice, Liberty, Prosperity« (Justice, Freedom, Prosperity).

The national holiday is July 9th. He commemorates the achievement of independence in 2011.

Parties
