What is happening in Parliament this week

This week the State of the Nation Address (SONA) will be debated over two consecutive days in the National Assembly in joint sittings with the National Council of Provinces.

The first sitting will commence today, Tuesday 17 February at 14:00 and continue on Wednesday at 14:00.

These will be fairly long debates.

On Thursday the President will respond for about an hour and thereafter parliament will continue on our normal work of oversight and the various legislative documents before the committees.

We expect a couple of very good speeches and very hot debates. These will be published on the DA blog kougademocrat.com for your information.

On Friday 20 February the Eastern Cape Premier will deliver the State of the Province Address (SOPA), which will also be followed carefully because promises are made from year to year.

It is the delivery that is a matter of concern. You will be fully briefed in terms of the promises and the follow up debates next week.

We are looking forward to an exciting year in politics.

Elza van Lingen, MP
