The Council of States (مجلس الولايات السوداني, Maǧlis al-Wilāyāt) is the upper house of the parliament of Sudan. Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) caused establishment of bicameral National Legislature, whose members were chosen in mid-2005. The upper chamber is Council of States (Majlis Welayat), which had 54 members. After the independence of South Sudan, the legislature was reduced to 32 members. The members are indirectly elected by state legislatures. Members serve five-year terms. The National Legislature, which includes the Council of States, was dissolved on 11 April 2019 following the overthrow of President Omar al-Bashir and his National Congress of Sudan in a military coup.
