Parliament is expected to reconvene today, Friday May 17, 2024 following a request by the Majority caucus for a recall of MPs.

The Majority filed a motion for a recall within seven days by triggering Article 112 (3) which requires signatures of at least three percent of all MPs to compel the Speaker of the House.

Subsequently, the Speaker of Parliament has served notice of a day’s sitting today.

A motion on increased financing and the acceptance of the Thirty-Fourth Report of the Appointments Committee are among the important government business issues that the Majority Caucus wants to address.

The Majority wants Parliament to reconvene to consider a motion for an “Additional Financing Agreement between GoG and the IDA for an amount of US$150 million to finance the ongoing Greater Accra Resilient and Integrated Development (GARID) Project” and also a “Request for Tax Exemption for selected beneficiaries under the 1D1F Programme.”

The House rose on Wednesday, March 20, 2024.
