The Members of Parliament on the Majority side staged a walkout in Parliament during processes to approve the 2024 budget on Wednesday, November 29, 2023.
After the debate on the budget was concluded, the Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin, put the question for the policy document to be approved or rejected through a voice vote.
The Minority MPs challenged the ruling by the Speaker that the 2024 budget had been approved by a majority voice vote and called for a head count.
This decision did not go down well with the Majority MPs who walked out of the house.
The Minister of Finance, Ken Ofori-Atta presented the 2024 budget policy document in Parliament on November 15, 2023.
The MPs subsequently took turns to debate the document.
Both the Minority Leader, Dr. Ato Forson and Majority Leader, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu made their concluding remarks today.
