It is unclear whether a new date will be set for the address which will also be the last by a head of State to the Sixth Parliament that is set to be dissolved midnight January 6.
No official reason have been given for the cancellation but it is suspected to be rescheduled as the address is mandated by Article 67 the Constitution which states: “The President shall, at the beginning of each session of Parliament and before a dissolution of Parliament, deliver a message on the state of the nation”.
