Parliament reconvenes for emergency meeting today
May 17, 2024

Parliament is today, Friday May 17, 2024 having an emergency meeting to consider some urgent government issues.

The Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin, earlier on May 10, summoned the Parliamentarians to converge today for parliamentary business after a petition by the Majority Leader, Alexander Afenyo-Markin who invoked Article 112(3) and Order 53 of the Standing Orders of Parliament, allowing 15 per cent of the House members to request an early recall of Parliament.

It is expected that key among the businesses to be considered would be the approval of the Ministers and deputy Ministers vetted for various portfolios.
