TORIT, 18 October 2010 (Gurtong) – Ocholimoi said the re-opening had been differed following the series of key meetings in the state as well as Governor Louis Lojore’s absence following a meeting that had been called in Juba.
However, in a twist of events, the National Liberation Council meeting that had been scheduled for last Friday was indefinitely put off, hence throwing all arrangements into confusion.
“We have agreed to officially reopen the Assembly on Tuesday 19 without any holdup to allow business at the House to continue as Ministries’ policy statements are expected to be presented by respective line Ministers as well as the presentation of the Governor’s policy document on the first day”, said the Assembly spokesperson Joseph Lokodo Kolombos.
Kolombos also revealed that he Assembly is expecting a visit by the GOSS’ Minister of Parliamentary Affairs Michael Makuei who will give lectures on the Referendum Act.
The Assembly is expected to resume its business for session two after taking a recess on September 1.
