The Parliament of Ghana has passed the Presidential Transition Bill into law. The new law is highly expected to curtail conflicts related to handing over power from one political party to another.
The Majority Leader, Hon. Cletus Avoka, on March 6 told Citi News the Bill will become law before the close of the month.
'If that law comes into place, it would reduce the incidence of conflict to the barest minimum as far as transitions are concerned,' he said earlier. 'I'm confident that between now and the end of March, before we rise for the biometric registration exercise or for the Easter Holidays we should be able to pass that bill into law.'
'We've gone very far, there are very few clauses that are left which we are trying to sort out with the technical people. Both majority and minority sides have agreed to a very large extent,' Hon. Avoka added.
