Parliament will meet again on May 17. 


Parliament will meet again on May 17. Speaker of Parliament  Alban Bagbin has summoned Members of Parliament (MPs) to report back to work on Friday, May 17, 2024.

This comes after the ruling caucus demanded that parliament meet again.

Majority Leader Alexander Afenyo-Markin previously mentioned Order 53 and Article 112(3) of the Standing Orders of Parliament, which permit a recall of parliament by 15 percent of the House members.

The adoption of a recent report from the appointments committee and a resolution for extra money are among the vital government businesses anticipated to be on the agenda for the meeting on May 17. 

The summons from the Speaker complies with Orders 53(1) and (2) of the parliamentary standing orders and Article 112(3) of the Ghanaian constitution.

The official statement from the Speaker’s office, dated May 10, states: “Under 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 therefore summon Parliament to sit on Friday, May 17, 2024, at ten o’clock in the morning, at Parliament House, Accra.”

“Dated in the Office of the Speaker of Parliament, Accra, Ghana, this 10th Day of May 2024.”
