Sharing is Caring

The members of Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) in South Sudan are calling for transparent, honest and inclusive debates in the constitution making process in South Sudan.


The CSOs were participating in a training on inclusive permanent constitution-making process for civil societies. This took place in Wau on Wednesday.


The process of permanent constitution-making commenced in 2012 when a National Constitutional Review Commission (NCRC) was put in place to draft a permanent Constitution to replace the Transitional Constitution of South Sudan.

The workshop organized by CSOs was opened by the State Minister for Parliamentary Affairs, Anthony Ngberende who stated that the Constitution is the highest law of the country.


“A people-driven constitution-making process is a process whereby people are allowed to speak, but also one where a conducive environment is created for everybody to air their views and aspirations in regard to what kind of constitution we want,” said Ngberende, on behalf of the governor.


He added, “That means, every citizen of South Sudan has a right to deliver his opinion without any segregation because the constitution is for people”.


The state minister also encouraged the workshop participants to exercise their freedom of expression.


For his part, Paulino Aguer, a representative of civil society organizations said a permanent constitution would be the supreme law of the country.


The workshop also encouraged citizens of South Sudan to work together towards achieving full implementation and make sure the country is returned to civilian rule through free and fair democratic elections.


South Sudan attained her independence in July 2011 when they seceded from Sudan.



A new constitution for South Sudan will be an opportunity for the citizens to determine a new future.
