The Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin, has called upon Members of Parliament (MPs) to return to their legislative duties on Friday, May 17, 2024.

This decision comes in response to calls from the majority caucus for the parliament to reconvene. The Majority Leader, Alexander Afenyo-Markin, has invoked Article 112(3) and Order 53 of the Standing Orders of Parliament, which permit 15 percent of the members of the House to request an early recall of parliament.

The upcoming session, scheduled for May 17th, is anticipated to prioritize crucial government matters, including the approval of a recent report from the appointments committee and a motion for additional funding.

The Speaker’s summons aligns with Article 112(3) of the Ghanaian constitution and Orders 53(1) & (2) of the parliamentary standing orders.

In an official statement released by the Speaker’s office, dated May 10th, it reads: “Pursuant to Article 112(3) of the Constitution of the Republic and Order 53(1) & (2) of the Standing Orders of Parliament, I, Rt. Hon. Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin, Speaker of Parliament, do hereby summon Parliament to sit on Friday, 17th May, 2024 at ten o’clock in the forenoon, at Parliament House, Accra.”
