Parliament to reconvene today with E-levy likely top of the list to be considered

The government’s intention to resubmit the E-levy bill to Parliament was known last week after extensive consultations on the controversial e levy.

However, some members of the Minority group have already threatened to kick against the bill ahead of its resubmission, but Mr. Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu has challenged their threat, insisting that the Bill has already been approved and just needs backing legislation.

Parliament proceedings ended on an unceremonious note when a brawl broke out during a late-night session to consider passing the Electronic Transaction Levy under a certificate of urgency.

The brawl started after NDC MPs tried to prevent Deputy Speaker Osei-Owusu from leaving his seat to vote after weeks of debate over whether he still retained his vote as the MP for Bekwai when sitting in for the Speaker of Parliament.
