2023 Budget: Any bill that comes before parliament will go through proper scrutiny – Minority


Budget Statement and Economic Policy of the government.
Many Ghanaians have accused the Minority of letting the people down.
Addressing the media on Wednesday, December 7, Minority’s spokesperson on Finance, Dr.
Cassiel Ato Forson argued that the approval of the 2023 Budget on Tuesday was just the first
face and not the end.
According to him, Parliament will now enter the face where the Minority will have the chance to
deal with the critical issues in the Budget.
He assured Ghanaians that the Minority is bent on properly scrutinising every Bill presented to
Parliament by the Finance Ministry to ensure the citizenry does not go through additional
hardships.
“We can assure you that the Budget process is not yet complete. Our position is that the Bills
that will come to Finance Committee and obviously to parliament will go through proper scrutiny.
Then the estimates that needs to be approved we’ll also look at it and where possible exert our authority on those ones as well,” Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson said.
