Reference Mini-review
Sofie Dreef and Wolfgang Wagner, 2013. Designing elections in conflict-prone divided societies: the case of South Sudan [Report] Peace Research Institute Frankfurt (PRIF). Accessed online.

Explains aspects of election design and examines them in the context of South Sudan, although there seems little scope to change the design before scheduled elections of 2015. On timing and sequencing, it is important that the 2015 elections should not be delayed - to establish a regular institution. On electoral administration, the NEC seems well supported by aid, but its capacity to resist political pressures is untested. On electoral system, the mixture of proportional representation and single-member constituencies is appropriate.
