By Opio Jackson

Members of Parliament at the Jubek State Transitional Legislative Assembly are expected to pass state vehicles and motorbikes number plates and driving licenses regulation 2018 next week to allow the state Licensing Authority to commence its work  immediately.

Yesterday, the Lawmakers suspended the deliberation on the vehicles and motorbikes number plates for Monday due to the absence of the state Minister of Local Government and Law Enforcement, Isaac Robek Benjamin.

Speaking to Juba Monitor, Emmanuel Joseph Kiri Chairperson, Committee of Information said if Mr. Isaac Robek Benjamin had presented the needed document to the legislatures by yesterday they would have approved the new state number plates.

Mr. Kiri said according to the conduct of business if the Members of Parliament are called from the recess, they are always given only one week to deliberate on the particular topic. “So today it was supposed to be our last discussion on the vehicles and motorbikes number plates,” he said.
