With the new Cabinet Ministers appointed, President Cyril Ramaphosa will now turn his focus to the State of the Nation Address (SONA 2019), where he will outline the vision and plans for the country.
The date for SONA is set for 20 June after Parliament’s Presiding Officers received a letter from President Cyril Ramaphosa, Parliament said on Wednesday.
This will be the first SONA of the sixth term of Parliament following the National and Provincial Elections.
The June SONA will be delivered at 7pm, as has been the case in recent years.
At an appropriate time, the Presiding Officers said they will apprise the public of the details of the SONA ceremony, which is the second this year, and the necessary preparations being put in place in line with the institution’s Constitutional functions.
