Majority Caucus: Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu did not meet judiciary over E-Levy case

The Majority Caucus in a statement issued on Wednesday (27 April) said the North Tongu MP made “reckless insinuations” against the Majority Leader

The Majority Caucus in Parliament has berated the MP for North Tongu Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa over claims that the leader of the House Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu held “secret meetings” with members of the Judiciary in connection with a suit against the implementation of the E-Levy.

“Very puzzling how Majority Group Leader and Minister for Parliamentary Affairs, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu has become the official mouthpiece of the Supreme Court as he asserts that our case on the unconstitutional passage of the repugnant e-Levy is “dead on arrival.”

“What gives him such unabashed effrontery and what does he know that the rest of us do not know?” Ablakwa asked in a Facebook post.

Describing Ablakwa’s comment as “reckless insinuations”, the Majority Caucus in a statement issued on Wednesday (27 April) said: “It is expected that the right-thinking members of the Minority Caucus he belongs and the political party he represents, would draw his attention to a picture of bias his comments create for the Judiciary and the vicious consequences thereof for our democracy.”

It added: “The Majority Leader Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu has not had and would not have any such clandestine meetings in any form whatsoever with the Judiciary over this or any other suit.”
