Members of Parliament are expected in the House today, 2nd May 2023 after they were recalled by the Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin for an “urgent parliamentary business
The Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin has recalled Members of Parliament for an “urgent parliamentary business.” The recall comes after the House went on break on March 31, 2023, following the approval of three controversial tax bills into law.
The Nanton Member of Parliament was involved in an accident on his way to Parliament to partake in the vote to approve the bills. On the night, the MPs also approved two additional Supreme Court Justices who had been vetted by the Appointments Committee earlier in the year.
Some MPs have claimed that the recall is to compel them to give government clearance to go for another loan. Meanwhile, the Minority in Parliament is unhappy with the recall.
In a tweet, the Minority Leader, Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson, alleged that the recall is to compel MPs to approve the government’s decision to go on another borrowing spree. He took a swipe at the government for recklessly borrowing despite the current economic challenges confronting the country.
