President John Dramani Mahama is set to deliver his final State of the Nation’s address to Parliament next Thursday, December 22, 2016.

His address will also be the last one by a head of state to the Sixth Parliament of the Fourth Republic.

The president, after serving a four-year term as president, lost his bid to remain in power for a second term as he was defeated in the just ended elections by Nana Akufo-Addo of the New Patriotic Party.

Mr Mahama’s address next week will also end sitting for the week as Parliament gets ready to be dissolved.


The president is expected to provide details of projects his government is undertaking and outline some of his achievements as president.

Members of parliament after rising on Thursday will reconvene on January 6 for immediate dissolution as the Seventh Parliament begins sitting on January 7.

But before the seventh parliament begins sitting, there will be the election of a new Speaker of Parliament, first and second Speakers as well as leaders of the House.

Members to constitute the Seventh Parliament of the Fourth Republic have already been called upon to begin registration.

The registration begins on Monday, December 19 and ends on Friday, December 23.
