Ghana parliament reconvenes, approves World Bank loan and appointees

18/5/2024 7:09
        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 and approved ministerial appointees and a World Bank loan.
        
        Majority leader Alexander Afenyo-Markin said in a statement that the urgent recall was "in good faith to enable government to discharge its constitutional and democratic obligations to the people."
        
        Lawmakers in February unanimously passed one of Africa's most restrictive anti-LGBT bills, but President Nana Akufo-Addo has not yet signed it into law. His office said it would wait for the outcome of two legal challenges to the bill before it passes to the president for assent.
        
        The delay sparked a backlash from supporters of the bill and has hobbled parliamentary procedures in Ghana, including the approval of ministerial nominations following a government reshuffle in February.
