He indicated that the Attorney General and government had made an express request to have the legislation considered under a certificate of urgency.

Citinewsroom.com reports that Professor Ocquaye has asked the relevant committee to determine whether it is of an urgent nature or not.

President Akufo-Addo declared that his government would use legislation to address political vigilantism if the two main political parties fail to resolve it through dialogue.

The two major political parties, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and New Patriotic Party (NPP) on the first day of the dialogue to end political vigilantism, which was mediated by the Peace Council, emphasized the need to stop the activities of political vigilante groups in the country.
