The Week Ahead: Quiet Week


There's a lull in Parliament as the legislature makes the most of the mid-week public holiday.

The National Council of Provinces has only scheduled six committee meetings and no plenary sittings.

Meanwhile, NA lawmakers are still occupied with constituency work and election campaigning.
