Mahama Have No Right To Abolish E-levy; Only Parliament Can – Jantuah



A private legal practitioner Mr Kwame Jantuah has told Former President John Dramani Mahama that amending or repealing laws in Ghana is not the function of the Executive rather Parliament.

He says Mr Mahama made a promise to remove the e-levy if the National Democratic Congress (NDC) wins power, as though he knows how the 2024 elections will turn out.

Mr Jantuah further stated that in case the NDC wins the presidential election and does not win majority in Parliament, this promise will not be achieved, hence Ghanaians will be disappointed.

“I don’t know whether he knows what 2024 elections is going to turn out to be. It is not an executive decision to repeal the e-levy, it is parliament. If you don’t have majority in Parliament how do you repeal it?

“In terms of his comments that they will repeal it, it depends on Parliament. He spoke a little too soon,” Mr Jantuah said on the New Day on TV3 Friday May 6.
