Parliament sends strong message to absentee ministers over budgetary allocation approval

The third day of the 2023 budget debate has passed, and the majority is having trouble getting enough members in the chamber for the discussion.

The government officials not only seem to be abandoning their budget, but they also seem ill-prepared to deal with the Minority Committee leaders’ spirited debate.

Parliament, though, is furious about this.

Appropriations for the various ministries have not yet been defended, and the discussion of the 2023 Budget has not yet been resolved.

Most ministers are not present to hear the discussion. Therefore, Parliament has issued a clear warning to ministers that they would not receive support for their financial allocations if they do not appear in the House to defend their appropriation.

This was one of the grievances made by the minority group against the lack of government officials, particularly ministers.

The Minority has brought up quorum problems, which call for two-thirds of Members of Parliament to be present in order to conduct business in the House, although overall, the government side is typically empty.

Adom News had fewer than 20 participants when the debate on December 1 started, increased to 40 in the middle, and then decreased once more.

Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu declared that his group will not support the ratification of such appropriations, sending a warm message.

Osei-Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, the Minister of Parliamentary Affairs, was unhappy about this and asked the Ministers for both the appropriation and permission to attend the Committee’s discussions.
