The Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin suspended activities of the house after 17 Members of Parliament (MPs) and over 150 staff tested positive for the virus.

Members and staff have been tested once again ahead of the resumption of activities in the house.

The Committee will later today continue vetting of nominees of the President for various ministerial roles.

The Minister-designate for Ashanti region, Simon Osei Mensah, the Minister-designate for Bono region, Justina Owusu Banahene, and the Minister-designate for the Bono East region, Adu Gyan is expected to be vetted.

These nominees are Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, the Minister-designate for Information; Hawa Koomson, Minister-designate for Fisheries and Aquaculture and Owusu Afriyie Akoto, Minister-designate for Food and Agriculture.

Besides the three nominees who the NDC members of the committee have decided not to approve, there are five others whose decision is yet to be taken on their approval or rejection.

The five are Communication and Digitalization Minister-nominee Ursula Owusu-Ekuful; Railway Minister-nominee, John Peter Amewu; Roads Minister-nominee, Kwasi Amoako-Attah; Attorney-General and Minister of Justice-nominee Godfred Yeboah Dame; and Health Minister-nominee, Kwaku Agyeman Manu.
