According to him, the President may send his first list of ministerial nominees to Parliament by Wednesday.
Both New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) caucuses are expected to nominate members to form the Appointment Committee to vet.
“…The second committee to be formed in the 8th Parliament will be the Appointment Committee. Once that committee has been constituted, the President will then signal and release the list of ministerial appointees and say in the communication to the Speaker that now that you’re ready with your appointment committee these are my nominees,” the Immediate-past Information Minister stated.
He added: “The earliest the President can release the list should be Wednesday because Committee on Selection will present its report to the plenary Tuesday afternoon.”
