The Darfur Executive is led by an Executive Chairperson and also includes an Executive Deputy-Chairperson, Darfur state governors, ministers and heads of ad-hoc Darfur commissions. Leader of the Liberation and Justice Movement, Dr. Tijani Sese, is the chairperson of the reformed authority. The Darfur Council will be made up of 66 Council Members drawn from the armed movements and the Darfur state legislatures.
