Speaking at a press conference in New Delhi on Wednesday, President Murmu emphasised that South Sudan could benefit from India’s experience in parliamentary democracy, including the drafting of a new constitution.
India has a long-standing relationship with South Sudan and has been actively involved in the country’s development since its independence in 2011. India has contributed significantly to South Sudan’s economic growth and has been providing humanitarian assistance to the country.
President Murmu’s announcement comes at a time when South Sudan is undergoing a political transition with the formation of a unity government in 2020. The country has been marred by civil war and political instability, and the formation of a unity government is seen as a step towards peace and stability.
India’s support for South Sudan’s political process is significant and will go a long way in strengthening the relationship between the two countries. India has always been a staunch supporter of democracy and has been promoting democratic values across the world.
South Sudan can benefit greatly from India’s experience in parliamentary democracy, especially in the drafting of a new constitution. India has a well-established parliamentary system, and the Indian Constitution is one of the most comprehensive and detailed constitutions in the world.
India’s support for South Sudan’s political process is a testament to its commitment to democracy and its desire to promote peace and stability in the region. With India’s support, South Sudan can overcome its political challenges and move towards a brighter future.
