    President Zuma's Request for Postponement of the State of the Nation Address Acceded

    President Jacob Zuma has written to the Speaker of the National Assembly, Ms Baleka Mbete and the Chairperson of the Council of Provinces, Ms Thandi Modise requesting the postponement of the Joint Sitting of the National Assembly and the National Council of Provinces, which he had asked them to convene in order to deliver the State of the Nation Address (SONA), South African presidency reports.

    The Joint Sitting was scheduled to occur on Thursday, 08 February 2018 but the President has requested the postponement due to certain developments which make it not conducive to successfully hold the sitting and deliver the SONA.

    The Presiding Officers have in turn, acceded to the President’s request.
