Minority Caucus Runs To Supreme Court To Declare E-levy Passage Null And Void

Spread the love
The Minority Caucus in parliament has filed a suit at the Supreme Court to challenge the passage of the e-levy bill by a one-sided parliament.

The Caucus claims the number of legislators in the chamber when the bill was passed did not form a quorum as declared by the Supreme Court.

The opposition MPs want the Supreme Court to set aside the passage of the e-levy bill by the 136 Members of Parliament of the Majority Caucus present in the chamber of parliament on 29 March 2022 as unconstitutional, null and void.

 

The plaintiffs are Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu, MP for Bawku Central Mahama Ayariga and MP for North Tongu Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Parliament passed the controversial bill into law under a certificate of emergency.

The one-sided house passed the bill after Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta moved the motion for its consideration.

After the proposed amendments were made and the bill deemed read for the third time, Speaker Alban Bagbin said it has been “passed”.

The Minority Caucus staged a walkout in parliament minutes after the previously unscheduled motion was moved.
