Parliament requests date from Presidency to transmit anti-LGBTQ bill

In a letter to the President’s Office, Parliament requested a precise date for the transmission of the Human Sexual and Family Values Bill, also known as the anti-LGBTQ+ Bill, for presidential approval.

This comes after President Akufo-Addo’s secretary, Nana Bediatuo Asante, instructed Parliament in a letter dated March 18, 2024, to stop bringing the bill before the President.

The President’s Secretary stated that this was because there was an ongoing Supreme Court lawsuit involving issues connected to the Bill.

In a letter dated April 10, 2024, Clerk to Parliament Cyril K. O. Nsiah acknowledged the President’s office’s request to halt the bill’s advancement.

However, he asked the President’s office to provide a day on which parliament might submit the bill to the President for review.

“Accordingly, I await an indication in writing from your office on when to present the Human Sexual and Family Value Bill, 2024 to His Excellency the President for his consideration, pursuant to Article 106(7) of the Constitution, 1992” the letter said.
