EAC set to discuss 2014/15 budget

20 May 2014, 10:14

Nairobi - The chairperson of the Council of Ministers of East African Community (EAC), Phyllis Kandie, is set to deliver the regional bloc’s Budget Speech for the Financial Year 2014/2015.

The East African Legislative Assembly (EALA) will deliberate on the budget from next week.

EALA resumes business next week in Arusha, Tanzania and shall be presided over by the Speaker, Margaret Nantongo Zziwa.

It is expected that the assembly will debate on EAC Integration (Education) Bill, 2014, Appropriation Bill, 2014 and the EAC Supplementary Appropriation Bill 2014.

It will also receive and consider reports from various Committees of the Assembly.

The EAC Integration (Education) Bill 2014 seeks to coordinate integration education in the EAC partner states. It also seeks to establish a unit within the Office of the EAC Secretary General which will develop educational materials and set standards and quality control measures for use in the EAC partner states.

According to the EAC statement, the EALA has sought views on the proposed Bill from the partner countries.

“So far, EALA has been around the Partner States and met with various stakeholders in a bid to collect views on the proposed Bill which sailed through the first reading during the First Reading in Kampala, Uganda, in January 2014,” read the EAC statement.
