The bill, CI 89 was laid in Parliament by Lands and Natural Resources Minister Nii Osah Mills on behalf of the Local Government Ministry to pave way for the District Level elections which has stalled after suffering a severe legal blow.

Parliament's Subsidiary Legislation Committee said the CI would have to wait till July before it can travel through the mandatory 21 sitting days maturation period to be passed into law.

The Speaker of Parliament, Edward Doe Adjaho, accordingly referred the CI to Parliament's Subsidiary Legislation Committee to consider the regulations and present its report.

This means that the 21-days compulsory maturation countdown begins today, March 20, 2015.

Meanwhile Parliament is expected to go on recess on Thursday March 26 and resume on May 3. But that will not affect the 21-days maturation period because counting will halt until the house resumes sitting.
