President Cyril Ramaphosa has undertaken a number of consultations with stakeholders in government and civil society as part of his preparation of the 2023 State of the Nation Address.
The President will address a Joint Sitting of Parliament in the City Hall, Cape Town, at 19h00 today, Thursday, 9 February.
The State of the Nation Address is an occasion in which the three arms of the state – the Judiciary, the National Legislature and the Executive – participate as a demonstration of the country’s constitutional dispensation and culture, and to ensure that all three arms are focused on national priorities.
The Address follows the recent, first Cabinet Lekgotla of 2023 which allowed the National Executive to review the performance of government against targets and objectives set in 2022.
The Lekgotla also enabled the national leadership to agree on key actions that are needed this year to advance the country’s economic recovery and long-term development, with resolution of the electricity crisis as the top priority.
In addition, the President has reached out to different stakeholder constituencies to take on board challenges and proposed solutions.
The President has also noted the many appeals and proposals emerging from citizens and as reflected in public media including social platforms.
Political parties will debate the President’s Address in the National Assembly on Tuesday and Wednesday 14 and 15 February, with the President replying to this debate on the afternoon of Thursday, 16 February.
This evening’s proceedings will be broadcast, streamed and posted on a range of channels or platforms operated by government as well as national and international media organisations, including radio streaming apps.
This will enable audiences to follow proceedings on traditional radio and TV and their online iterations, including on handheld devices.
