UNDP and Ministry of Justice Organizes Fora on Constitution Making

A nation’s constitution articulates principles, rules and processes that define the institutions of the State, their duties and functions, the relationship between such bodies and the citizens as well as the rights and duties of the citizenship itself.

In recognition of this pivotal issue now at the time where Sudan is experiencing a period of transition, UNDP in a collaborated effort with the Ministry of Justice, helped organize a series of fora in 15 northern states on the constitution making process this month.

The main objective of the workshops was to ensure a wide popular consultative process on the drafting of the upcoming constitution. Through these consultative workshops, the constitution becomes more likely to better reflect the needs and demands of the nation’s citizens as a whole and, therefore, more likely to gain their respect and support.

This month, three workshops were organized in Red Sea , Gedarif and River Nile States. Sudanese, representing a wide spectrum of political and social opinions, including: politicians, the judiciary, students, academics, traditional authorities, law enforcement and civil society participated in the workshops. .
