E-Levy: Minority files injunction against implementation

The Minority in Parliament have filed an application at the Supreme Court to prevent the commencement of the e-levy deductions.

In a tweet on Tuesday, April 19, 2022, Member of Parliament for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa said “We have today successfully filed an application at the Supreme Court to injunct the implementation of the obnoxious E-Levy pending the determination of our substantive case. Hearing is fixed for 4th May, 2022. The Govt/GRA must suspend its 1st May plans. The E-Levy war is on!”

Deductions

The Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta earlier revealed that the implementation of the e-levy would start in May this year.

“We had some meetings with Controller and Accountant Generals Department (CAGD) and the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) and they have said right at the beginning of May they should be able to put their system together,” he told TV3’s Roland Walker in Parliament after President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo delivered the State of the Nation Address on Wednesday March 30.

The E-levy was passed by Parliament on Tuesday March 29 after the third reading in the House. The Minority staged a walkout during the second reading.
