The NDC MPs are ready to accept the budget under the following factors.

The subject of the 2022 budget has flooded our nation over the past weeks. The minority in parliament has come out to tell the government on five key areas that if the budget improves upon can be accepted. This is what they said, "Parliament has duly rejected the 2022 budget. Until and unless government remove the draconian tax contained in the budget, the NDC members of parliament unable to support such policies."

They further said that "the minority wishes to strongly advise the majority leader and government to accept defeat and acknowledge the rejection of the 2022 budget and economic policy by the Parliament."

The minority wants the government to withdraw the Agyapa deal and suspend the E-levy. The minority has also advocated for the proper construction of paragraph 829 which contains the Aker Energy. The minority also want the government to include the Keta tidal wave project in the budget to help the people of the Volta region.

After all those conditions are incorporated into the budget, the minority is ready to accept the 2022 budget statement. What are your thoughts on these inclusions the minority are advocating for? Do you have anything in mind that you want them to include in the budget too? Let me know your thoughts in the comments section.
