The Minority in Parliament has sought an injunction from the Supreme Court in Accra, pending the outcome of its main lawsuit.

CITI NEWS reports that the court has scheduled the case for May 4, 2022, three days after the anticipated levy date.

On Tuesday, April 19, 2022, the North Tongu Member of Parliament, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, stated through Facebook that the application had been successfully submitted.

On Tuesday, “we successfully filed an application at the Supreme Court to injunct the execution of the objectionable E-levy awaiting the decision of our substantive case,” he said.

In the absence of the minority MPs who left before the measure was taken up for a second reading on Tuesday, March 29, 2022, Parliament approved the law.

As a result of this, Ghana’s government has asserted that the charge would expand the tax base and earn an additional GH6.9 billion in 2022.

Another worry is that the government may use the e-levy profits to obtain more funds via the sale of securities.
