Johannesburg - Parliamentary work remains part of President Jacob Zuma's schedule, the presidency said on Thursday.

"The Presidency has noted discussions around President Jacob Zuma's programme and parliamentary work," spokesperson Mac Maharaj said in a statement.

"We wish to reiterate that although the President is not a Member of Parliament, his annual calendar always includes parliamentary work and that has been the case since his first term in 2009."

His programme included Joint Sittings of Parliament, such as Zuma's State of the Nation Address to be held on 12 February

This date would be Zuma's first time returning to Parliament since being heckled by the Economic Freedom Fighters in August - a point EFF leader Julius Malema raised at a Johannesburg press briefing on Tuesday.

"The date for the first quarter oral question time will be finalised with the National Assembly in due course and will be communicated publicly as part of the President's programme that is released to the media regularly," Maharaj said.
