The electronic transactions levy popularly called E-levy is yet to be passed in Parliament after two months into the 2022 financial year.

The electronic transactions levy is a new tax of 1.75 which the Government of Ghana led by President Nana Addo-Dankwa Akufo-Addo is seeking to impose on Ghanaians.

Two months into the financial Year, the government is still unable to pass the levy in Parliament due to many oppositions to the new tax.

The Member of Parliament for the South Dayi constituency Hon Rockson-Nelson Dafeamekpor has revealed that the Levy is still not on the business statement for the week ending 4th March, 2022.

“We have just considered the Business Statement of Parliament for the Week ending 4th March, 2022. Once more, no place for Elevy.

 

It’s truly sad for a Govt that stampeded Parliament into considering this Bill under a certificate of urgency initially. So what’s Govt afraid of?” Said in a tweet.

The big question on every Ghanian is, will the E-levy be passed by Parliament?
