Parliamentarians in Ghana are sharply divided over the 2022 budget after the majority passed the policy statement despite the boycott of the minority members.
On Friday, November 26, the Minority Caucus voted to reject the budget after the Majority Caucus staged a walkout.
The Minority, among other reasons for rejecting the budget, demanded the suspension of the 1.75% e-levy and the Agyapa royalties deal as well as providing solutions for the ravaging tidal waves in Keta in the Volta Region.
The Majority Caucus later asked Ghanaians to disregard the supposed rejection of the budget as it was unconstitutional.
