First Term Review: Sixth Parliament

Aug. 8, 2019 (2 months, 2 weeks ago)

Parliament’s first term ended last week. According to the programme, the term was 11 weeks but the main thrust of the work was compressed into the final 5 weeks of the quarter.

A lot was done in this first term: new parliamentary leadership was elected, the second State of the Nation Address and ensuing debate occurred, new structures were set up and MPs were inducted and received training.

In addition, a big chunk of the time was spent considering, debating and voting on the 2019/20 national budget.

We unpack some of the key numbers and activities below
