Parliament resumes sitting to address financial issues and urgent govt business


Parliament is set to resume today, Tuesday, June 11, for the second meeting of the Fourth Session.

The House had been abruptly adjourned by Speaker Alban Bagbin on March 20, 2024, following an extensive response to a letter from the Presidency advising against transmitting the Human Sexual Rights and Family Values Bill, commonly known as the anti-gay bill, to the President for assent.

On May 3, 2024, the Majority Caucus petitioned the Speaker to urgently reconvene the House to address critical government business items, including the adoption of the 34th Report of the Appointments Committee and a motion on additional financing.

In response, a letter from the Office of the Speaker has called Members of Parliament back from recess to commence proceedings today.
