Debate, Voting On Anti-Gay Bill Will Be Made Public – Speaker Assures



The Speaker of Parliament has announced that the Committee on Constitutional, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs’ debate on the Promotion of Proper Human Sexual Rights and Ghanaian Family Values Bill, popularly known as the Anti-LGBTQ+ Bill, will be made public.

Alban Bagbin speaking in the House, which reconvened after a three-month break, on Tuesday, said that this move will aid in having an honest conversation on the bill devoid of political and religious sentiments.

Mr Bagbin stated that although it is important to have different opinions and views shape the Bill, people need to accommodate the views of others.

“So please let’s allow whether religious bodies civil society, academia or whatever to participate in the deliberations of this house. I know Ghanaians are expectant, and I know we have over 100 petitions before the legal affairs committee.”

“The sitting of the committee will be public, and the decision of this House will be public, we will want to know where each member of parliament stands,” the Speaker added.
