Speaker of Ghana’s Parliament, Rt. Hon. Professor Aaron Michael Oquaye has directed that Parliament reconvenes for Sitting from Monday, 29th April to Friday, 3rd May, 2019.
The recall is in accordance with the power conferred on the Speaker by Order 42(3) of the Standing Orders of the Parliament of Ghana, which provides that Mr 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 directive was contained in a letter dated April 24, 2019 and signed by the Acting Director of Public Affairs, Parliament of Ghana, Miss Kate Addo.
According to her 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 letter entreats all Members of Parliament to attend upon the House to expedite action on these.
