MPs Resume Sitting Today

Members of Parliament (MPs) will resume sitting today after postponing their scheduled re-opening two times.

Parliament initially announced plans to resume business on the Tuesday, May 27.

The date, which was however postponed to June 3 was again postponed to June 10.

Reports had quoted the minority leader, Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu as claiming that the postponements were forced by financial constraints.

Speaking to Citi News however, the Deputy Minority Leader, Dominic Nitiwul said though funding challenges remain, parliamentary duties must resume.

According to him, it is imperative for Parliament to resume since it has a number of issues to look at.

“The bills that are in Parliament are well over ten and those that Parliament envisage to come are close to ten so we have a lot of jobs to look at,” Mr. Nitiwul said

According to him, Parliament is willing to make use of its limited resources to get the House working.

“ I don’t think that in this era of authority anybody will say that the House needs such a sound financial fortune, that is not true. We have small resources, but we are ready to make use of it to get Parliament working,” Mr. Nitiwul explained.
