Also, the appointments committee will vet Gomoa West MP, Alex Kodwo Kom Abban, who has been named a deputy Health Minister.

At the vetting, the nominees are expected to answer questions bordering on their educational background and work experience.

The committee members will also solicit answers from the nominees in relation to the policy direction they will be proffering for their respective ministries.

After the vetting, the committee will write a report to parliament, recommending by consensus or a majority decision, the approval or rejection of a nominee.

A plenary will consider the report and after contributions from the members, the house will approve or reject the nominee.

When the house approves the nomination of a minister or a deputy minister, the president will then swear them in to start work.
