The approval came today and it was approved in the absence of Members of Parliament from the Minority side.

During the proceedings, the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta re-submitted a revised version of the 2022 Budget and this was approved by the Majority MPs as well as the Speaker.

In a report by JoyNew, the revised budget proposed e-levy reduced from 1.75% to 1.5%.

After presenting the revised budget, Parliament proceeded to consider the motion on the budget and approved it with the First Deputy Speaker, Joseph Osei Owusu counting himself as an MP making the Majority Caucus in the House 138 members.

Before the approval of the budget, there was a series of meetings between the leadership of both the majority and minority sides.

The meeting was held in order for both sides to come to a consensus about what happened when the budget was rejected the last time.

Both parties failed to reach an amicable conclusion and it was then that the minority side decided not to take part in the business of the day.
