E-levy: ‘We have warned that we don’t want to be taken by surprise ‘– Haruna Iddrisu

    Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu has accused the Majority Caucus of smuggling into the Order Paper the consideration of the controversial Electronic Transaction Levy (E-levy).

    According to the Tamale South MP, E-levy was not enlisted in Parliament’s business statement for this week.

    He questioned why the Majority will pull such a surprise on the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) legislators.

    “We have time and again warned and cautioned that we never want to be taken by surprise on a major economic policy bill of government and we will not accept that culture.

    “So when you [Majority Caucus] did not have the numbers, you were hesitant, you won’t come before the House [with the Bill] now that you think that you have some reasonable numbers then you say ‘go to the business of item 27’,” he fumed.

    However, the Tamale South lawmaker said that the NDC MPs will not submit to the questionable attitudes of the Majority to get the Bill passed.
