That, he said, was to ensure effective outcome of parliamentary business.
Mr Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu said the brief break would also afford the Appointments Committee ample time to conduct its public hearings of ministerial nominees and present reports on same for consideration when the House reconvened.
He said an induction seminar would be organised for new Members of Parliament (MPs) and continuing MPs who had not benefited from the seminar at the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA) from January 27 to 31, 2017. The Majority leader said soon after that seminar, another induction and orientation programme would be organised for all MPs of the Seventh Parliament.
These would afford both the new and old MPs the opportunity to be equipped with the necessary guidelines that would facilitate their work as legislators.
Parliamentary Service Board
The House also adopted the composition of a team of MPs to advise the Speaker of Parliament, Professor Aaron Michael Oquaye, to facilitate the constitution of the Parliamentary Service Board.
