The House has been asked to meet again on Tuesday, May 2, 2023, according to Speaker of the House Alban Bagbin.
In a notice dated April 20, Mr. Bagbin said that the purpose of the recall is for the House to consider “urgent parliamentary business.”
The MPs, however, are anticipated to cut their Easter break short and reconvene on Tuesday at 10 a.m.
The statement said “In exercise of the power conferred on the Speaker by order 42(3) of the Standing Orders of the Parliament of Ghana, I, Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin, Speaker of Parliament, do hereby direct that Parliament shall notwithstanding anything to the contrary, be recalled from recess to sit on Tuesday, the 2nd day of May 2023, at ten o’clock in the forenoon, at Parliament House, Accra, to consider urgent parliamentary business”.
After passing the government’s three revenue-related bills—the Growth and Sustainability Amendment Bill, the Excise Duty Amendment Bill, and the Income Tax Amendment Bill—Parliament adjourned on March 31 for the Easter holiday.
