By Bida Elly David


Central Equatoria State Constitutional Review Committee has said they are winding up reviewing the state permanent constitution.

This latest development was disclosed early this week after the committee presented their report to Governor Emmanuel Adil concerning the status of their task as far as the constitution is concerned.

The state constitution is a document that consists of a set of laws regulating the conduct of citizens with respect to their culture, practices, and customs.

In a statement posted on the governor’s press office, the secretary of the committee, briefed Adil that they had accomplished their mandate and accepted a few amendments.

The constitution, after the necessary amendments, shall be tabled before the state’s council of ministers for study and shall be forwarded to the state Assembly for deliberation and final approval.

The committee confirmed that the constitution of the state is compatible with the transitional national constitution of the Republic of South Sudan 2011, as amended by the revitalized agreement.

Meanwhile, the Governor, Emmanuel Adil Anthony, praised the committee for its good work despite the challenges it faced.
