Due to the complexity of a political system, only the major state organs can be represented at the national level, as well as at the level of the federal states, and the vote by the people. The same applies to the competencies of the individual institutions, which focus in the presentation mainly on the rights of the individual organs to nominate, confirm or remove a respective other state organ. In addition, only the supreme command of the armed forces, the activation of the war and emergency and the possibility to initiate referendums are called. The presentation of the regional or local government and administrative level was deliberately omitted (also due to the differentiated situation in various federal states). The diagram is initially divided vertically into the three branches of legislative, executive and judicial branches, and horizontally into national and state levels. Thick black arrows symbolize elections and votes by the South Sudanese people, a thinner black arrow indicates the election of members of the Council of States by the respective constituent parliaments. Green arrows mean the right to appoint a position, start a referendum or declare war or emergency. Orange arrows mean agreeing to the right to appoint and red arrows to recall, dismiss, or initiate an impeachment procedure.
