I Do Not Want Any Surprises: Haruna Iddrisu 'Faces' Majority Leader As Sitting Resumes For The Week

Today marks the 5th sitting of the first meeting of the second session of the eighth parliament. The Majority leader, Honorable Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu, who is also the Member of Parliament for the Suame constituency, postponed the second reading and debate of the e-levy bill to today, in their last sitting. Many Ghanaians were expecting a showdown between the caucus today. Surprisingly, there is no line in the business statement for this week that states that the e-levy will be read and debated. The Minority Leader, Haruna Iddrisu raised some concerns on this issue.

"Today, as I watched the order of business pursuant to standing order 53, I do not see anything relating to e-levy. Mr. Speaker, on this important matter, there can be no surprises. Therefore, we want the leader of government business to lead us through, when will it be reintroduced or gazetted. We do not want to be taken by surprises.", he stated boldly.

Haruna Iddrisu reiterated that the minority will firmly stand against the e-levy.
