Tomorrow, Tuesday the 5th. However, in January 2021, he will hand over the address of the State of the Nation to the Parliament of Osu Accra.
Mr Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, the majority leader of the Parliament, announced in Accra on Monday that the House would return for the Christmas and New Year holidays to close the last three days of the Parliament of the Seventh Republic.
He stated that the election of a new Speaker of Parliament would take place in the Chamber, while the swearing-in ceremony of the new Parliament, the Parliament of the Fourth Republic, would be held in the Chamber.
The announcement was made in response to questions from parliamentarians about the exact location of the offices of the House of Representatives, the constitutional role of the president and the elected president with regard to the State of the Nation Address (SONA) and its inauguration.
The Parliament of the Seventh Republic, which began work on 7 November, was formed in the first half of the year. The Parliament of the Seventh Republic, which began work on 7 November, will be registered during the night of 6 January 2017 and will take place during the night of 6 January 20202 and on the eve of 7 January 2020. January 2021: Accession to the Parliament of the Eighth Republic.
Mr Kyei Mensah-Bonsu said in a statement that before the dissolution of the Seventh Parliament on Tuesday 5 January 2021, His Excellency gave the speech of the State of the Nation in accordance with Article 67 of the Constitution.
He asked the members of the House to attend the ceremony on time.
A visit by the Ghana News Agency (GNA) to the Parliament car park, where a large congress tent has been set up for the ceremony, shows that the location is already ready.
So far the outdoor area has been paved and the trees on the avenue leading to the site have been freshly painted from foot to trunk in Ghana’s national colours of red, yellow and green.
The road has also been considerably improved.
The dwarf poles supporting the road illuminate a place that seemed dilapidated and neglected, overcrowded with countless barricades under huge mahogany trees framing the streets.
The inauguration ceremony in Parliament took place after the Parliament had decided last November to move the inauguration of the Place de l’Etoile Noire and to hold the swearing-in of the Presidents in Parliament.
The GNA has seen an increased safety presence at the sites.
In the meantime, the minority leader, Knut Alhayi Mubarak Muntaka, has asked the House leaders not to involve parliamentarians in high-level issues before the dissolution, in order to allow sufficient time for the activities of the Remembrance Committee.
