Today’s Parliament session was adjourned due to a lack of quorum.

Speaker Theo-Ben Gurirab said that he would not be executing his duties accordingly if the house were to go continue with the items on the agenda.  

Parliament sessions are scheduled to start at 14: 30 pm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

At around 15:10 only half the seats were occupied, prompting Gurirab to adjourn the session.

There were only two items on today’s agenda namely; the resumption of the debate on gender based violence against women and children, by the deputy minister of Agriculture, Water and Forestry Lempy Lukas.

Congress of Democrats (CoD) president Ben Ulenga was set to give notice of a motion for the assembly to discuss and debate the living, social and economic conditions  of returned refugees and displaced  persons and communities.

The Speaker moved the items on the agenda to the 10September when the MP’s are expected to return from  the second recess of the year.
