The Electoral Commission (EC) has laid before parliament a Constitutional Instrument to Parliament for the establishment of the Guan constituency.
The Representation of the People (Parliamentary Constituencies) Amendment Instrument 2023 aims to incorporate the Santrokofi, Akpafu, Likpe, and Lolobi (SALL) traditional areas, which were unable to vote for a Parliamentary Candidate in the 2020 General Elections.
It has since been referred to the Subsidiary Legislation Committee of the House.
Speaker Alban Bagbin referred to the C.I said, “The representation of the People Parliamentary Constituencies Amendment Instrument 2023 is referred to the Committee on Subsidiary Legislation for consideration and report to the house. This instrument will likely save this house and forgive us of the cardinal sin that we have been said to have committed.”
“It deals with the issues of the SALL and a number of them have now come for consideration of the house.”
