Parliament reconvenes for the last time before election 


The Speaker of Parliament has welcomed members of the House for its third and last session this year.

He has asked members of the House to be punctual and respect the time table for the House to expedite action on the 23 bills before it.

As the Six Parliament draws to an end Members of Parliament are demanding to know their condition of service and emoluments of Article 71 office holders enshrined in the Constitution.

The MPs want their salaries, allowances, facilities and privileges due them determined.

They are therefore demanding that the Committee set up by the President to determine their emoluments to present its recommendations to the House as soon as practicable to enable the MPs to know their fate before the House goes on recess in the first week of next month.

The Member for Old Tafo, Dr. Anthony Akoto Osei raised the matter on the Floor of Parliament today.

The MP for Sekondi, Papa Owusu Ankomah also contributed to the matter.

Meanwhile Mr. Bagbin has made a strong case to the House to prioritise the passage of the Right to Information Bill before the House rises in November.
