Budget Brouhaha: Sam George Sends Strong Message To NPP Over Rejected ‘Killer’ Budget

The Members of Parliament were in the House yesterday to approve the 2022 Budget Statement. The 2022 Budget Statement was rejected by the 137 NDC MPs who were in Parliament.

While the NDC MPs and other members of the opposition party are very elated about the feat that has been achieved, members of the ruling New Patriotic Party see the steps taken by the Speaker of Parliament and NDC MPs to be unconstitutional and illegal and as such have stated that the “rejected” budget would be brought back to Parliament. The Majority in Parliament believes that the budget would be approved when it is brought back because they would have more “Yes” votes than the Minority in Parliament who are bent on “killing” the budget.

The Member of Parliament for Ningo-Prampram Constituency, Hon. Samuel Nartey George, has sent a message to members of the Majority in Parliament [NPP] who are having several press conferences debunking claims that the 2022 Budget Statement has been rejected by Parliament. He tweeted that they [Minority in Parliament] would be waiting for them [Majority in Parliament] in Parliament. He wrote, "You can call a 1000 press conferences and do all the tough posturing. When you finish, we are waiting for you in the Chamber".
