Ahead of that, Deputy Majority Leader in Parliament, Sarah Adwoa Safo has disclosed that, the committee would meet today to discuss processes for vetting but looking forward to having four nominees appear on each day of vetting.

"We are looking at vetting at least four minister designates on each day so that the process can go faster and other processes could follow immediately,"she stated in a citi fm interview.

The Appointment Committee she said is made up of representatives from both majority and minority in parliament and both would have to discuss a suitable time and schedule for the vetting.
