Minority heads to Supreme Court overnig

The Minority say they are not backing down on their bid to prevent the implementation of the Electronic Transaction Levy (E-Levy) Bill.

Parliament is now waiting on President Akufo-Addo to assent to the policy after the passage of the controversial levy.

The Minority walked out before the second reading of the Bill.

Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu before the walkout said the tax is a tool to collapse businesses and described it as the nuisance of all nuisance taxes.

The Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu described the approval as a charade because, in their view, the Majority did not have the right numbers to pass it.

“This is a charade,” he said at a press conference in Parliament.

“The majority of less than 137 conducting businesses only proceeded on illegal and unconstitutional business. Parliament did not have the numbers to take any decision that should be binding on Parliament and Ghanaians.”
