Parliament rose at the end of the second meeting of the third session of the sixth Parliament last Friday.

The Speaker of Parliament, Edward Doe Adjaho in his closing remarks, assured members that they would move to the Job 600 Office Complex when the House resumes in October.

He expressed gratitude to the leaders of both sides of the House for assisting him in steering affairs to a successful end.

He also thanked members of the Minority who lost their parliamentary primaries and yet put their expertise and experiences at the disposal of Parliament for their dedication.

Mr Adjaho thanked members for their understanding and co-operation in resolving matters during the few tense moments which ensured that the business in the House proceeded smoothly.

The Majority Leader, Alban  Kingsford Sumana Bagbin, commended members, especially the leadership, for the manner in which it resolved its differences for compromises and consensus to prevail in the deliberations of vital issues to enhance democracy and development of the country.

Mr Bagbin expressed appreciation to the Speaker and his two deputies for steering affairs to a successful end and to the leadership of the Minority for the team spirit they displayed.

He also commended the Parliamentary Press Corps for the wide coverage given to activities in the House.

Mr Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, Minority leader reiterated his commitment to co-operate with the Majority to facilitate the implementation of government policies.

"Notwithstanding, we will reinvigorate our effort to scrutinise government policies, programmes and projects to ensure that the country has value for public money spent and also unveil corruption wherever it is situated," he stated.

Meanwhile, the Parliamentary Service Board has ordered an inquiry into the power outage which occurred in the House last Wednesday and interrupted business for more than one hour.

The board has also ordered the interdiction of the Director of Development of the Parliamentary Service, Mr Safo Dodoo, who is the official charged with managing the utility facilities in the House.
