Minority want 2014 budget reading postponed

The Speaker of Parliament, Edward Doe Adjaho on Friday refused a suggestion by the Minority Members of Parliament calling for the postponement of the presentation of the 2014 Budget on Tuesday, November 19.

The proposal was made by the Member of Parliament for Atwima Mponua and who is also the Minority Spokesperson on Youth and Sports, Isaac Asiamah on the floor of Parliament.

He was of the conviction that if the call is heeded this would enable the nation concentrate on the return leg of the Black Stars' World Cup qualifier against Egypt which would be played on that same Tuesday.

However the Speaker indicated that rescheduling the budget reading would not be needless as that will not have any impact on the game most Ghanaians are very expectant of.

He explained that his information is that the football match would be played at 4pm by which time Parliament would have been adjourned to allow honourable member interested in following the game do so.

The Black Stars of Ghana play Egypt on Tuesday in a 2014 World Cup qualifier return leg, a game which is very dear to the hearts of most Ghanaians.

Ghana trounced Egypt in the first leg played in Kumasi by 6:1, putting Ghana in pole position to qualify for the impending world cup.
