Parliament To Reconvene For An Emergency Sitting Today

Members of the 8th Parliament are expected to return to the House today for an emergency sitting.The recall follows a petition from the Majority Leader, Alexander Afenyo-Markin, requesting the sitting to consider outstanding government business.

In a letter directed to the Speaker by the Majority leader, reference was made to Article 112(3) and Order 53 of the Standing Orders of Parliament, which authorises 15 per cent of the House members to request Parliament’s recall.

The Majority Caucus is seeking to address key government business items, including adopting the Thirty-Fourth Report of the Appointments Committee, which will see the approval of the new Ministers designated by the President and a motion on a $150 million loan facility.
