Parliament adjourns sitting after MPs fought over E-levy bill

The Second Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Andrew Asiamah, has adjourned parliamentary sitting following the inability of the house to reach consensus on the consideration of the Electronic transaction levy (E-levy).

Sitting was adjourned to Tuesday, 21st December 2021.

The decision was reached after the leadership of both sides and some senior members of the house were called into a closed door meeting, following a fight that ensued on the eligibility of Joe Osei Owusu to take part in the voting process as presiding Speaker.

There was a brawl on the floor of parliament during the voting process on the controversial E-levy after the then first deputy Speaker, Joe Osei-Owusu attempted to give way to the Second Deputy Speaker, Andrew Asiamah to take over proceedings to enable the former cast his ballot.
