South Sudan Liberal Party

The South Sudan Liberal Party (Juba Arabic: حزب الليبرالي جنوب السودان Hizb Al-Liberali Janub Al-Sudan) is a political party in South Sudan. The party was formed on 1 October 2010. At their first General Assembly meeting on 17 December 2011, the members of SSLP decided that, in light of the limited political space and the strong desire of the youth to become involved in the res publica, the SLLP should transfer its activities to the South Sudan Liberal Youth Forum (Juba Arabic: شباب الليبرالي جنوب السودان Shabab Al-Liberali Janub Al-Sudan) (SSLYF) until 2015.
