We’ll Reject E-Levy At Committee And Plenary-Sam George Reveals

Following the approval of the 2022 budget, Ningo Prampram MP, Samuel Nartey George has said that the Minority in Parliament still doesn’t agree with the approval of the budget and will reject it at Committee and Plenary.

He noted that it is Ghanaians will that the budget gets rejected and for that matter the Minority will see to it that it gets rejected.

”As far as I know, the position of the Minority as a Caucus is that we would REJECT the imposition of an e-Levy at Committee and Plenary. That’s the will of the People!”, he tweeted.

Despite Sam George calling for an outright rejection of the budget, the Minority leader Haruna Iddrisu has changed his earlier stance of rejecting the budget and has said that he will accept it if it is changed from 1.75% to 1%.

“A week ago, we said no, we won’t accept e-levy but having listened to officials in government, including the Minister of Finance, I am convinced to accept a departure from my original no to accepting a one percent e-levy,” the Minority leader said at the 10th anniversary launch of the Ghana Chamber of Telecommunication in Accra.

“We are not against it, but we want it fixed at one percent. We fear for double taxation because we already have the Communication Services Tax,” he added at the anniversary on Thursday 2nd December.
