E-levy to be considered next week, Minority

Finance Ministry engaging stakeholders, Ghanaians on E-levy

Minority insists E-levy will be rejected

A meeting between the government and the minority on the introduction of E-levy has ended inconclusively today.

The government team led by Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta met the minority in the early hours of Thursday, January, 27.

Sources told GhanaWeb that during the discussion, government still maintained the stance of 1.75 percent on E-levy.

The minority then questioned the essence of the engagement if government still maintains the 1.75 per cent on E-levy.

They however ended the meeting without any conclusive decision.

Government is expected to present the E-levy before the house on Tuesday, February 1 as they are currently engaging stakeholders and some sections of the public.

As part of the consultation, government will hold a town hall meeting in Koforidua later today.
