Members of the Majority side in Parliament are insisting that the 2024 Budget has been passed despite the Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin's reminder to them that the Budget is still before the house and has not been passed.

The Speaker on Thursday, November 30 reaffirmed his stance that the budget is yet to be approved after the Majority Leader, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu and Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta in a press briefing indicated that it has been passed.

The Speaker directed the Business Committee of the house to reschedule discussions on the Budget to next week for a final decision, adding that the matter was not up for debate on Thursday.

But in a release signed by the Deputy Majority Leader, Alexander Afenyo-Markin after the ruling, the Majority side is adamant on the decision while justifying their walkout from Parliament on Wednesday.

According to them, the Speaker in his remarks following a voice vote on the floor, had ruled in favour of the Majority side only to make a U-turn after the Minority had challenged the voice vote and demanded a headcount.
