The Finance Minister, Ken Ofori Atta presented the 2022 budget in Parliament today.

The Minority in Parliament has vowed to oppose some of the proposals made in the budget, particularly the tax on electronic transactions.

The Ranking Member on the Finance Committee and MP for Ajumako-Enyan Esiam, Cassiel Ato Forson argued that the electronic transaction levy which is an applicable rate of 1.75% on all electronic transactions will not be accepted by the Minority caucus since it would worsen the hardships faced by Ghanaians.

PM Express host, Evans Mensah pitched the two sides together to start the debate on the budget. His guests are; Ranking Member of Parliament’s Finance Committee, Dr Casiel Ato Forson, and Chairman of Parliament’s Finance Committee, Kwaku Kwarteng.

Stay tuned.
