Minority File Stay Of Execution Suit At SC To Hinder Akufo-Addo From Assenting E-levy
The Minority in Parliament has filed a suit at the Supreme Court to block President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo from assenting to the controversial E-levy bill passed today, Tuesday, March 29, 2022, amidst a walkout by the Minority.
The Minority is represented in the Stay of Execution suit by Minority leader Haruna Iddrisu and his colleagues Mahama Ayariga and Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa.
The controversial E-levy Bill was passed on March 29, 2022, by a one-sided Parliament but the Minority argues based on the recent Supreme Court judgement, that the Majority did not have the quorum to pass the Bill.
According to the proponents of the Bill. E-levy is expected to increase tax revenue by GHs 6.9 billion (US$1.1 billion) for the government to help reduce the budget deficit.
