The Speaker of the House, Dr. Abass Chernor Bundu delightedly welcomed the sworn-in APC MPs and noted that Parliament is now fully constituted.


On May 4, the main opposition APC parliamentarians subscribed and signed to the Oath of Office that was administered by the Clerk of Parliament Umar Paran Tarawally. The composition of the Fifth Parliament of the Second Republic of Sierra Leone is now fully constituted. For procedural guidance, Clerk of the House also handed copies of the Standing Orders and the 1991 Constitution of Sierra Leone to the newly sworn-in MPs.
