The Assembly which shall be presided over by the Speaker, Rt. Hon (Dr) Margaret Nantongo Zziwa expects to debate several Bills and reports which include the EAC Integration (Education) Bill, 2014 for the second and third reading.

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.

The house will among others receive and consider reports from various Committees of the Assembly and consider Motions and Questions brought before the House.
