    South Sudan historically swears in 588 MPs


     

    South Sudan has sworn into office, some 588 Members of Parliament (MPs).

    The swearing-in ceremony took place on Monday, August 2, 2021.

    Local media reports say the lawmakers were sworn to a newly created national parliament.

    The swearing-in of the MPs is a long-overdue condition of South Sudan’s Peace deal.

    Reports say the MPs are a mix of delegates from the ruling party and former rebel factions who signed the truce.

    They reportedly took the oath of office at a ceremony in Juba presided over by the chief justice.
