Parliament approves 2021 budget

Parliament has approved the Budget Statement and Economic Policy for the 2021 fiscal year, after heated arguments from both sides of the House.

The Minister of Parliamentary Affairs and leader of Government Business in Parliament, Mr Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu on Friday, March 12, 2021, presented the 2020 budget statement and highlights to Parliament, detailing the government’s programmes and policies for the year.

He did that in his capacity as an Interim Minister of Finance after President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo last week assigned him that additional responsibility.

There was heated argument between the two sides before the budget was approved Friday afternoon, March 19, 2021.

The majority side secured 137 votes as against 134 minority votes.
