Ghana’s parliament reconvenes after Easter break

Tuesday, May 15 sitting in Parliament commences the second meeting of the Second Session of the seventh Parliament of the Fourth Republic.

During the meeting, the House is expected to pass bills, including the much awaited Right to Information Bill into law, approve loan facilities, ratify conventions and treaties between Ghana and other countries, among other things.

Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Attah is also expected to present to the House the mid-year review of the 2018 budget in accordance with Article 179 of the 1992 Constitution which clothes Parliament with the power to authorize public expenditure.

In that presentation, Mr. Ofori-Attah is expected to introduce new tax measures to help deal with the country’s expenditure.

The lawmaking body went on recess, March 23 for the Easter festivities but has since met once at an emergency sitting to consider some urgent Parliamentary business.
