2024 budget workshop must be held in Parliament – Speaker orders

The Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin, has directed that the Post-2024 Budget Workshop be conducted in parliament.

This decision was reached after Members of Parliament were divided on whether to choose the Rock City Hotel or the Volta Serene Hotel as the venue for the workshop.

This follows the advocacy by the Buem MP, Kofi Adams for the MPs to hold the workshop in Accra to save costs in light of the current economic situation.

But the Deputy Majority Leader, Alexander Afenyo-Markin, had initially announced the Rock City Hotel in the Eastern Region as the venue for the workshop, scheduled from November 17 to November 19.

In the end, Speaker Bagbin ruled in favour of conducting the post-budget workshop within Parliament’s premises.

He stated that, “Democracy has finally decided, and the people have prevailed on their representatives to decide that this year’s post-budget workshop be held here in Parliament.”
