INSTRUCTIONS
 Please indicate your name, media organisation and ID number.

 Due to space limitations at the Imbizo Centre, a maximum of 3 journalists will be allowed from each media organisation for the lock-ups at the Imbizo Centre.
 If your media house has an office in Parliament, you are expected to work from there as there is limited space at the Imbizo Centre.
 Registration at 100 Plein (PGA) and Imbizo Centre will open at 07:00 and close at 08:00.
 Journalists working in the Imbizo Centre will need to vacate the room shortly after the embargo has been lifted.
 Photographers and television broadcasters who are not part of the lock-up and need access to the Parliament precinct should RSVP with Parliament media by sending their details to mmpindi@parliament.gov.za and CC mntsodo@parliament.gov.za
 Photographers and television broadcasters who want to take part in the embargoed press conference by Minister Gigaba must also RSVP with National Treasury for accreditation.

 Indicate in your reply if you will bring your own laptop or you will use the provided PC.
 It is imperative that you RSVP by closing date so accreditation can be arranged.
