Elections 2024: Parliament will proceed with first session as determined by Chief Justice

# Parliament will proceed with its first session as determined by Chief Justice Raymond Zondo, despite concerns raised by MK Party’s legal representative. Parliament says it disagrees with Zungu Incorporated’s interpretation of Section 46 of the Constitution, and affirmed its secretary’s obligation to facilitate the session. Chief parliamentary legal adviser Zuraya Adhikarie says unless a court overturns the election results, the first sessions of the National Assembly and the National Council of Provinces will be physical. Travel and accommodation for MK’s elected members will be cancelled to avoid wasteful expenditure.
