Member of Parliament for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has urged the Business Committee of Parliament to speed up the process of recomposing select Committees in Parliament ahead of presentation of the 2021 budget to the House on Friday, March 19, 2021.

According to him the various select Committees have an oversight over the Ministries, Department and Agencies.

He further questioned to know from the Committee if the House had to wait till the new Standing Orders are approved before the Committees are formed, saying “it appears we are out of time and have to work if leadership have had this discussion?”

Chairman of the Business Committee Osei-Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu on his part noted that he agrees with the point made by the North Tongu lawmaker, adding “if we do not have the Committees in place, debate on the estimates to be considered by the various committees otherwise they can not come on “.
