Ghana's Parliament will resume sitting on June 11, according to a statement issued by the Office of the Speaker.

In the statement signed by Rt. Hon. Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin, Speaker of Parliament, it was announced that the third meeting of the fourth session of the eighth Parliament will commence at 10 AM on the said date at Parliament House in Accra.

The statement reads in part: "Pursuant to Order 58 of the Standing Orders of the Parliament of Ghana, I, Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin, Speaker of Parliament, hereby give notice that, the third meeting of the fourth session of the eighth Parliament of the fourth Republic shall commence on Tuesday, the 11th day of June 2024 at ten o'clock in the forenoon at Parliament House, Accra."

Ghana’s parliament, which had been adjourned since March following a dispute between the speaker and the president over an anti-LGBT bill, reconvened on Friday, May 17, and approved ministerial appointees and a World Bank loan.

The resumption in June will see lawmakers reconvene to continue deliberating on bills and motions, as well as to scrutinize the work of the Executive and ensure transparency and accountability in governance.
