Check Out The Names Of All The Speakers Of The Ghana Parlimente Since 1951

The legislature in Ghana dates back to 1850 when the country was a British colony known as the Gold Coast. This body, known as the Legislative Council, has a purely advisory role as the governor exercises all legislative and executive powers.

Reforms began in 1916 and 1925, but the powers of the governor remained broad. In 1946, a new constitution was introduced which allowed an unofficial member of the Legislative Council to be its president until the governor ceased to be president of that body.

This system lasted until 1951 when the legislature elected its first spokesperson, Sir Emmanuel Charles Quest.
