INFOGRAPHIC: Ghana’s 7th parliament – A house of teachers and bankers

Ghana’s new parliament consists of at least 43 teachers and 43 bankers, most of whom have been practicing for several years before being sworn into the house as legislators.

There are also at least 39 Members of Parliament (MPs), who are professionals in the legal service. Most of the MPs in Ghana’s new parliament have two professional backgrounds making it easy for such MPs to serve in two different committees of the House.

An overview of the professions or professional background of all the new MPs provides a fair blend and representation of various key areas of the country’s growth engine; namely health, education, trade and industry, economy, science and technology, justice system, media, local government and management.
