Johannesburg - The first sitting of Parliament is expected to take place on May 22.
After months of electioneering following the IEC’s announcement of the results, those who have won seats will begin their roles as lawmakers.
Parliament announced that the date for the sitting is provisionally set for May 22 and is subject to the Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng.
The Constitution states that both houses of Parliament, National Assembly and National Council of Provinces have to be established within 14 days of the IEC declaring the election results.
In the first sitting, the Chief Justice is expected to swear-in members of Parliament. He will also preside over the swearing of the president.
