The 2014 session of the National Legislative Assembly was opened at Freedom Hall, main building by President Salva Kiir who also used the opportunity to make political and governance announcements but tactfully avoided discussion on the peace talks with rebel leader, Riek Machar.

Neither did Kiir hint on plans of forming a transitional government.

Following the breakout of the conflict last year, several lawmakers and ministers fled the capital Juba to neighbouring Kenya and Uganda where many are still residing.

Today’s session was poorly attended since several members loyal to Machar did not show up.

The National Legislative Assembly speaker Menasseh Magok chaired today’s session.
