Minority Chief Whip, Mubarak Muntaka Mohamed had indicated that he is hopeful that before the end of the life span of the seventh Parliament the Right to Information Bill 2018 (RTI) would be passed with the work done so far on it.

According to the Minority Whip, he is not clear if the joint committee on Constitutional, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs and Communications committee would be touring the country apart from the stakeholders meeting in Accra and doing some work in Koforidua.

He further hinted that if the committee is done with its work and presents its report to the plenary, it is possible that within the second meeting of the second session, they would pass the RTI Bill 2018.

“If they are not through with their consultation I may have my doubt if we would be able to finish within this meeting, this meeting is not going to go beyond first week of July 2018”, he said.
