Approval of nominees rescheduled


Parliament could not debate a report of the Appointments Committee and approve or reject ministerial nominees based on the work of the committee as scheduled for Thursday.

This followed complaints by some members that they needed time to study the report and make meaningful contribution to the debate.

Meanwhile, Mr Edward Doe-Adjaho, Chairman of the Appointments Committee, criticized a clerk to the Committee for mistakes in the report laid in the House Today, saying it was hindering progress and general work of the committee, one reason for the rescheduling of the debate.

Mr Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, Minority Leader, said the committee members and the staff had to work under pressure and sometimes late into the night, a possible reason for the mistakes in the report.

Mr Alban Bagbin, Majority Leader, who agreed, said the committee had to work under pressure and members of the committee should be well motivated to encourage them.

The House is expected to give its final verdict on the nominees on Friday.
