Speaker of Parliament to be sworn in as ag. President

The Speaker of Parliament, Rt. Hon Prof. Mike Ocquaye is expected to be sworn in as President following an expected absence of President Nana Akufo-Addo and the current abhe Vice-President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.

The practice of swearing in acting Presidents has been challenged in court as insignificant.

President Nana Akufo-Addo is expected to leave the country for Liberia Sunday while the Vice-President is already in the UK undergoing further medical treatment.

Parliament has been recalled to fill the political vacuum with the Speaker of Parliament who is the third in the line of four most powerful political leaders constitutionally mandated to act in the absence of the first two.

A statement signed by the Deputy Speaker of Parliament Joseph Osei-Owusu set  the date of the expected swearing-in at Sunday 2:30pm.
