Chairman of the Public Accounts Committee, Dr. James Klutse Avedzi has revealed that the Speakers committee would start sitting twice a week when the House resumes on the 30th of October 2018.

According to the chairman the committee has no plans to sit within the remaining time for the recess to be over.

In an interview when ghanamps.com questioned how workable it was, the chairman indicated that despite the third meeting of the second session of the seventh Parliament of the fourth Republic being a budget meeting, it is workable.

He further pointed out that PAC would not have budget estimate referred to it during the budget consideration by the committees, “we can continue doing our sitting whiles the other committees are sitting.

When it comes to the report consideration by the House, we would be part of it to consider the report as a House, he said.

Again after the passage of the appropriation Act, we can come and do our work as the Public Account Committee.

Meanwhile during the emergency recall of the House, Speaker of Parliament Professor Aaron Mike Oquaye gave directives to committee chairs to speed up referrals before them since the third meeting would be a budget meeting and there are a lot of work to be dealt with.
