First Vice Presidents 2016-2020

Following the signing of the Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in the Republic of South Sudan (ARCSS) in August 2015 a new position of 'First Vice President' was established alongside the pre-existing positions of President of South Sudan and Vice President of South Sudan, with the incumbents in both these positions continuing in office.[3] Unlike the positions of President and Vice President which are permanent features of the Constitution the office of First Vice President will cease to exist following the end of the transitional period stipulated in the ARCSS unless otherwise decided in the permanent Constitution.
