Ghana’s Appointment Committee of the Parliament on Wednesday began vetting minister-designates presented by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

Health Minister Kwaku Agyeman-Manu and Minister of National Security Albert Kan-Dapaah, who have been re-nominated for the same positions appeared before the committee.

Akufo-Addo is still in the process of forming a government for his second term and in line with constitutional requirements, he presented a list of 30 substantive ministers for various ministerial portfolios and 16 regional ministers to the legislative body for vetting and approval.

The vetting is scheduled to end on March 9.
