The National Legislative Assembly is yet to deliberate and pass the speech of President Salva Kiir due to lack of a quorum.

Last month, President Kiir delivered a State of the Nation address through the parliament on the peace agreement and the state of the economy and security.

The Members of Parliament were to meet today to consider the speech, but not enough MPs turned up for the session.

The Chairperson of the Information Committee, Oliver Mori Benjamin, says the session was to include members from both the Council of State and the National Legislative Assembly.

“We did not have the full quorum of the attendance and then because before we go in always we have the attendance in the registration,” said Hon Mori.

“We are arguing all the members to turn up for the seating to discuss address of the president to the nation,” he added.

Mori did not give any specific reason as to why some members of parliament failed to attend the session today.

The sitting has been postponed to tomorrow.
