The Deputy Majority Leader Alexander Afenyo-Markin, has made a rather damning allegation against the minority in parliament, saying that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) is fully in support of the e-levy but for want to score political points from the masses they pretend to kick against the e-levy
The e-levy has been a bone of contention between the majority and the minority in Government since its inclusion in the 2022 Budget Statement and Economic Policy Document, but speaking in an interview on Newsfile yesterday, Afenyo-Markin has suggested that the entire house is in agreement on the need to tax electronic transactions.
He however noted that the disagreement of the majority and the minority was bourne from the minority’s disagreement on the percentage on the e-levy, but are in support of the policy itself.
“We know their position, their position is one percent. I am surprised that suddenly they want to steam Haruna Iddrisu or that they want to single him out and sacrifice him.”
“The E-levy was a position by the collective, if they have changed their position I would be surprised. But let Ghanaians know that on the E-levy, the NDC agrees with the NPP that we need that E-levy,” the Effutu MP stated.
