The Parliament of Ghana has rejected the 2022 budget presented by the finance minister Ken Ofori Atta to the house. MyNewsGhana.Net reports
After an extended, crucial sitting today, November 26, 2021, to see to the finalization of debates on the 2022 Budget Statement and Economic Policy, the majority side walked out of parliament upon the entry of the General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress.
It must be noted that the NDC General Secretary is also a member of the Parliamentary Service Board.
A decision was later made with only a minority side present. Speaker Alban Bagbin after creating a quorum laid down the motion for qualified members to vote on the approval of the Finance Minister’s budget which apparently went in favor of the minority side of parliament.
Earlier today, the Members of Parliament on the Minority side had cause to hold a press conference monitored by MyNewsGhana.Net to register their displeasure about why the MPs on the Majority side had not shown up in parliament more than 2 hours after the advertised time for the start of the day’s proceedings.
