The State of the Nation Address is an annual address delivered by the President, given in fulfilment of the Constitutional requirement in Article 101 (1) of the Constitution, ahead of the opening of a new parliamentary session.

The State of the Nation Address serves as a means to inform the nation about its present economic, political, and social condition. It is also a vehicle for the President to summarize the accomplishments and plans of their programme of government both for a particular year and until the end of their term of office.

The Address is broadcast on television, radio, and online streaming by state agencies, as well as private media organizations.
