Government

Sudan is governed under the interim national constitution of 2005 as amended. The executive branch is headed by a president, who is both head of state and head of government. The bicameral National Legislature consists of the 30-seat Council of States, whose members are elected by state legislatures to six-year terms and the 351-seat National Assembly, whose members are elected to six-year terms. Administratively, Sudan is divided into 17 states.
