The Minority Members in Parliament at a roundtable discussion on the economy on Wednesday, demanded a new budget following the depreciation of the cedi.

A Former Deputy Minister of Finance, Hon Cassiel Ato Forson, leading the minority said; “the depreciation of the cedi has put the economy in disarray and the projections surrounding it, as contained in the 2019 budget. This has, therefore, undermined the confidence in the economy and sent a wrong signal to the investor community,”

“This calls for urgent steps to be taken by the government to restore the economic health. The starting point is that we should be immediately presenting a new budget which considers all distortions and the serious problems occasioned by the fall of the value of the cedi.

At the minimum, we expect a statement to parliament assuring the nation and investor community of the steps taken by the government to address the instability of the economy and that … the budget, as presented by the Minister of Finance, can no longer be relied upon as a true blueprint upon which to manage the economy for the year,” he added.
