In Ghana, Parliament approved the Right to Information bill that now awaits presidential assent before being fully recognized as law, News Ghana reports. The RTI bill will operationalize the constitutional right to information held by public and some private entities with exceptions related to protecting the public interest. The passage marks the end of a long road for the RTI bill, which was first drafted in 1999, reviewed in 2003, 2005 and 2007 and was initially presented to Parliament in 2010. Once recognized, the law will be implemented at the beginning of 2020.
