Ghana’s Parliament is expected to reconvene at 9:00 am today to vote on whether the Electronic Transaction Levy should be considered under a certificate of urgency or not.
This follows last night’s scuffle in the House after the voting process was interrupted when the First Deputy Speaker, Hon. Joseph Osei Owusu who was presiding, left the chair of the Speaker for the Second Deputy to take over proceedings so he can cast his vote on whether the E-levy Bill should be considered by the House under a certificate of urgency or not.
Order was restored moments after, before the Second Deputy Speaker, Andrew Asiamah, came to adjourn sitting to Tuesday, December 21, 2021 at 9:00 am prompt.
According to the Majority Leader who spoke with Citi News in a short interview monitored by InsiderGH.com after the chaos, they have been engaging the leadership of the Minority Caucus after what happened in the Chamber.
“So I believe by tomorrow [Tuesday] this storm will subside, and we will be able to work and deal with the substance of the matter,” he added.
