General News
Additionally, a motion regarding a USD150 million loan facility is slated for discussion

Members of Parliament are set to return to the House today for an emergency sitting prompted by a petition from Majority Leader Alexander Afenyo-Markin. 

This recall session aims to tackle critical government matters that require immediate attention.

The Majority Caucus in Parliament had issued an urgent call for the reconvening of the legislative body, invoking constitutional provisions and parliamentary regulations to justify their appeal.

In a letter signed by the Majority Leader, specific reference was made to Article 112(3) and Order 53 of the Standing Orders of Parliament.

These legal frameworks empower 15 percent of the House members to demand the recall of Parliament.

Mr. Afenyo-Markin highlighted the urgency of addressing significant issues on the legislative agenda.

The Majority Caucus has outlined a crucial list of items to be addressed. Foremost among them is the adoption of the Thirty-Fourth Report of the Appointments Committee, which is vital for the approval of the new ministers designated by the President. 

Additionally, a motion regarding a USD150 million loan facility is slated for discussion.
