Parliament to rise August 3

Parliament - Rapid News GH

This year, Parliament will meet for the shortest time in a season, and it is anticipated that it would adjourn on or before August 3.

This is because the Speaker and the leadership will be involved in several internal and external responsibilities that will delay the House’s daily session.

Despite this, the House has a difficult task ahead of it as it must review 69 legislation and other modifications.

This was said by the Majority Leader, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, during a press conference on Wednesday to formally release the schedule for the second meeting of Parliament.

The meeting’s agenda includes the mid-year budget review that Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta will provide.

He will be required to provide an update on the rescue from the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the nation’s present economic status, and the future outlook.


The House will also debate 29 executive instruments in addition to the 69 measures.

The Affirmative Action Bill, the Intestate Succession Bill, which have been on the back burner for more than ten years, as well as the Mineral and Mining Amendment Bill, which addresses the problem of unlawful mining, are also crucial for the season.
