One-sided parliament passes 2022 budget

Parliament of Ghana

Parliament has today, Tuesday, 30 November 2021 passed the 2022 budget.

The Minority side of the house was, however, totally empty. 

The one-sided legislature, made up of the Majority Caucus, passed the budget.

Before the budget was passed, the First Deputy Speaker said the earlier rejection of the budget on Friday, 26 November 2021 was null and void because parliament did not have more than half of its members during the vote on the budget.

He noted that 137 members was not enough to make a decision on the budget, according to law.
