EWN senior parliamentary reporter Gaye Davis says while a new date for the State of the Nation Address (Sona) has yet to be decided, party chief whips have been told the budget will still be delivered on 21 February.
She reports that the chief whips of political parties met earlier on Wednesday to discuss the way forward.
At issue was finding a new date for Sona hopefully as soon as next week, so as not to interfere with the budget process has a tight timetable, says Davis, and it was clear this cannot be interfered with.
She says there is nothing to stop Sona happening after the Budget Speech.
