WINDHOEK, 07 FEB, (NAMPA) – President Hage Geingob will officially open the Ninth Session of the Sixth Parliament next week Wednesday.
Speaker of the National Assembly (NA), Peter Katjavivi said in a media statement on Thursday that the Head of State will open the session as per Rule 15 of the Standing Rules and Orders of the NA.
The statement added that the event will take place under the theme ‘Promoting Integrity, Accountability and Professionalism’.
“This important annual event on the calendar of the Republic of Namibia brings together under one roof, the three main Organs of the State - Executive, Legislature and Judiciary,” it noted.
Invited guests are expected to be seated by 14h15, and due to insufficient sitting space, the general public is advised that attendance is strictly by invitation only.
It further alerted the public that Robert Mugabe Avenue and Love Street around Parliament Gardens might be closed-off to public traffic between 11h30 and 17h00, and must therefore make use of other alternative roads due to this event.
