Parliament will commence extended sittings beginning today, March 16, 2020.
The extended sittings which have adopted Mondays and Saturdays as additional days will run all through to April.
The Deputy Majority leader, Sarah Adwoa Safo explained that the sittings will enable the House to deliberate on critical issues that are time-bound.
Meanwhile, the Minority in parliament wants an early adjournment of the house over health concerns.
First Deputy Minority Whip, Ahmed Ibrahim, in a similar situation in 2019 intimated that the practice of having late-night sittings and extended periods of parliamentary meetings is having a toll on their health as well as that of reporters who are compelled to endure such long hours.
