Speaker Kadaga asks EALA to foster intergration

The East African Legislative Assembly has been tasked to implement both the Monitory Union and common market protocol while in their five year term in office.

The Speaker of Parliament of Uganda Rebecca Kadaga while opening the fourth sitting one day orientation of the Assembly asked the regional assembly to foster integration.

Kadaga also appealed to the community to actualize the popularization of the community so that the community population can appreciate the need of the East African Community.

Meanwhile, the newly elected Speaker for the East African Legislative Assembly Martin Ngoga who hails from Rwanda  implored the regional assembly to foster unity so as to serve better during their tenure.

All the five EALA Members of Burundi were present despite their earlier contradiction following the election of Ngoga.

South Sudan, the newly enrolled member state will also be represented in the Fourth EALA.

President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, who is the Chair of the Summit of EAC Heads of State, is expected to deliver the State of EAC Address to the Assembly on Tuesday.

The State of EAC Address is an annual address delivered by the sitting EAC Summit Chair and it sets the momentum and impetus for the integration process by reflecting on general policies that relate to the Community’s progress while outlining the strategic challenges which require attention.

The Assembly shall during the three-week period debate three key Bills; the EAC Oaths Bill, 2017, the EAC Statistics Bureau Bill, 2017 and the EAC Monetary Institute Bill, 2017.

This is the second time that Uganda is hosting the regional assembly in a period of two years.
