Updated: Sep 28, 2021
The speaker of parliament, last Monday, told the house the operations of the house are being hampered due to the delay in constituting the board.
The Parliamentary Service exists to facilitate the work of Parliament through the provision of support services to the House including its committees and agencies for the purpose of ensuring the full and effective exercise of the powers of Parliament.
Furthermore, it works to enhance the dignity of the House and adequately inform the public on Parliamentary activities. In discharging its functions, the Service ensures transparency, non-partisanship, and a high sense of professionalism.
The speaker disclosed how helpless he’s been in getting the Committee chaired by majority leader Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu to respect laid down procedure in getting the board in place.
Consequently, the speaker issued an ultimatum to the committee to address the matter by Friday or he will populate the board himself and dared anybody to go to court should that happen.
