According to a Ghanafeed article, Hon. Collins Adomako Mensah, a member of Parliament’s Finance Committee, has suggested that the E- Levy will be imposed on February 1, 2022, following Parliament’s approval.
According to Hon. Adomako Mensah, the government would set up a system to monitor income before implementing the law.
Hon. Collins Adomako Mensah stated on Wontumi TV that he is certain that when Parliament reconvenes on January 18th, tempers would cool to allow for the easy passage of the E- Levy.
The Afigya-Kwabere North MP reaffirmed that the Appropriations bill has approved the 2022 budget. He stated that the government will have the mandate to pay workers’ salaries and to launch new initiatives to supplement existing ones next year.
Meanwhile, he claims that the violence that erupted in the House of Commons during the E- Levy voting was political. He added that it was a calculated attempt.
“Speaker came to Parliament on Monday morning and left in the afternoon. And he knew on Tuesday there would be E-Levy voting but he didn’t show up,” Hon. Adomako Mensah explained.
