Speaker recalls Parliament for ‘very important business’

The Speaker of Parliament, Professor Aaron Michael Oquaye has directed that Parliament reconvenes for sitting from Monday, 29th April to Friday, 3rd May, 2019.

This is in accordance with the power conferred on the Speaker by Order 42(3) of the Standing Orders of the Parliament of Ghana, a press release by the Parliamentary Service said on Wednesday.

The Order provides that the Speaker may, if he thinks fit, call a sitting of the House before the date or time to which it has been adjourned, or at any time after the House has been adjourned sine die.

“The recall is occasioned by a need for the House to consider some very important Parliamentary business including the completion of work on and passing of the Companies Bill among others.”

The statement entreated all Members of Parliament to attend to expedite action on those businesses.
