The Government of Ghana has withdrawn the Special Prosecutor Bill from parliament after the Minority raised issues with portions of it.
The withdrawal was announced by the Majority Leader Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu on Wednesday July 26.
The Minority raised issues of constitutional breaches, stating the bill had not been gazetted when it was first laid on Tuesday, July 18.
The Constitutional, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs Committee last week rejected a request by government for the Bill to be passed under a certificate of urgency. The committee recommended the bill be taken through all the normal processes.
Similarly, the Zongo Development Fund Bill has been withdrawn.
