The constitution establishes a presidential system of government headed by a president who is head of state, head of government, and commander-in-chief of the armed forces.a It also establishes the National Legislature comprising two houses: a directly elected assembly, the National Legislative Assembly, and a second chamber of representatives of the states, the Council of States. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/South_Sudan
