Parliament to convene at 3PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays amid minority boycott


Majority Leader Alexander Afenyo Markin has announced that Parliament will now hold sessions after 3 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays.


This decision follows the Minority’s declaration that they will boycott parliamentary sittings on days when their leader, Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson, attends court. Dr. Ato Forson is currently on trial for his alleged involvement in a failed ambulance deal during his tenure as Deputy Finance Minister.


Afenyo Markin stated that the new schedule is designed to be advantageous for all members. “Mr. Speaker, there is an arrangement that on Tuesdays and Thursdays we sit after 3 pm. As a result of that, questions will receive written answers, which answers will be published for members, so that arrangement is in place.”


He further assured, “So no member will lose an opportunity to have answers to questions because of the late sitting.”
