Marking of E-LEVY bill doesn’t influence case under the watchful eye of Supreme Court – Amalibah
An individual from the legitimate group of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Abraham Amaliba has said that the marking of the e-demand bill into regulation by President Nana Addo Danklwa Akufo-Addo doesn’t influence the argument against the endorsement in court.
Mr Amaliba said on the Key Points on TV3 Saturday April 2 with have Dzifa Bampoh that the lawfulness or in any case of the endorsement of the approach is still ate the front burner.
“The marking of the bill doesn’t influence the case at the Supreme Court,” he said.
The issue is as yet on the front burner.
Mr Amaliba prior blamed Mr Akufo-Addo for participating in foolishness following the marking of the e-levy bill.
He said Mr Akufo-Addo was completely mindful of the suit recorded against the endorsement of the e-demand by the Minority yet, he went on to sign the bill, a circumstance Mr Amaliba said is coming down on the Supreme Court.
Talking on the New Day show on TV3 on Friday April 1, he said “The activity of the President has placed unnecessary strain on the judges of the Supreme Court. He was crazy in doing that since he knew there is a case in the Supreme Court. His demonstration isn’t illicit yet his activity, is it attractive?
“He will come down on the appointed authorities.”
As far as it matters for him, the Government’s Spokesperson on Governance and Security, Palgrave Boakye Danquah, said the marking of the e-demand bill was not fitting since there was no order on it.
President Akufo-Addo on Thursday March 31 consented to the Electronic Transaction Levy (e-demand) bill into regulation on Thursday March 31.
The strategy was supported by an uneven Parliament on Tuesday March 29 after the minority arranged a walkout.
The Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta uncovered on Wednesday March 30 that derivations will begin in May this year.
He said that is the affirmation he has been given by the Controller and Accountant General (CAGD) and the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA), who will be the income gatherers.

The marking comes all at once the Minority has sued the Attorney General at the Supreme Court over the endorsement of the bill by the House.
Talking on the New Day show Mr Boakye Danquah said “[the signing] is certifiably not a rush. Whenever parliament has supported a bill the last stage is for the president to consent to the bill.”
He added “People who have opposite view as far as the translation of the law will go to the high court. The Minority’s case has recently been documented, there is no order.”
He further showed that Parliament had the necessary number of officials present in the House when the bill was endorsed on Tuesday March 29.
“We had the majority, on the off chance that we didn’t have the majority, 66%, it is absolutely impossible that the Speaker of Parliament Alban Bagbin would have permitted that to occur,” he said.
