Parliament to resume this week

By Charles K Mark


After a lengthy recess, the Reconstituted Transitional National Legislative Assembly (R-TNLA) is set to open this week for business.

In an announcement issued on March 28th by Alalla Younis Loro the clerk of the August House, informed all members to report for the opening of the session on Wednesday, April 3rd 2024.

“This notice serves to cordially communicate to you that the inauguration of the Transitional National Legislature, for the First Session /2024 is hereby scheduled to take place on Wednesday 3rd April 2024 in the TNLA Premises, “partly read the announcement.

The theme of the parliamentary opening is “Together Building a Better Future through Parliamentary Consensus.”

Initially, lawmakers were expected to reconvene in January 2024 after a Christmas break in December 2023.

However, the resumption was delayed as the parliament awaited feedback from the presidency, parliamentary spokesperson John Agany Deng.

Speaker Jemma Nunu Kumba had previously communicated that the parliament would prioritize discussions on elections, peace implementation, infrastructure development, and economic recovery.

Meanwhile, in the face of harsh economic conditions and rampant inflation, President Salva Kiir Mayardit directed the economic cluster to implement appropriate measures to address the situation.

However, it remains to be seen if this issue will be prioritized in the discussions at the parliamentary level.
