Parliament Resumes Sitting Today

Parliament will resume sitting today, Tuesday, June 11, for the second meeting of the Fourth Session. The House was abruptly adjourned by Speaker Alban Bagbin on March 20, 2024, following an extensive response to a letter from the Presidency.

The letter cautioned Parliament to cease transmitting the Human Sexual Rights and Family Values Bill, popularly known as the anti-gay bill, to the President for assent.

On May 3, 2024, the Majority Caucus petitioned the Speaker for an urgent reconvening of the House to address key government business items. This includes the adoption of the Thirty-Fourth Report of the Appointments Committee and a motion on additional financing.

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