Finance Minister to present 2022 Budget on 15 November

The Ministry of Finance had earlier announced 17 November as the presentation date for the government’s Budget Statement and Economic Policy

Deputy Majority Leader, Alexander Afenyo-Markin has informed Parliament that the 2022 Budget Statement and Economic Policy of government would be presented on 15 and not 17 November 2021.

He explained that the reason was to enable the House to attend its post-budget workshop with members checking in on Friday 18 November, and staying till they leave on Sunday 21 November 2021.

Afenyo-Markin said this when he presented the Business Statement for the third week ending, Friday, 12 November 2021, to the House.

Afenyo-Markin, who is also the Member of Parliament (MP) for Effutu, clarified that the House would start the debate on the budget from Monday 22 November, and conclude on Friday 26 November 2021.

Having regard to the limited time frame for the approval of the Budget and Appropriation Bill 2021, he urged members to be active in the debate on the budget.

He entreated committee chairpersons, particularly those with urgent and time-bound referrals, to endeavour to present their reports for consideration as early as possible before the House was seized with consideration of the Budget Statement and Economic Policy of government.
