WATCH | Malema, Steenhuisen debate Ramaphosa's SONA in Parliament

accreditation

Members of Parliament will debate President Cyril Ramaphosa's State of the Nation Address (SONA) for at least 10 hours over Tuesday and Wednesday.

Ramaphosa will respond to the debate on Thursday.

Tuesday's sitting is scheduled from 14:00 until approximately 20:00, but is likely to finish much later if there are any disruptions.

This could well be the case, as MPs are likely to raise the EFF's behaviour during Thursday's tumultuous affair, which could lead to EFF MPs raising points of order.

At these debates, an ANC MP, probably chief whip Pemmy Majodina, will be first to speak, followed by the leader of the opposition DA interim leader John Steenhuisen and then EFF leader Julius Malema.
