The Minority caucus may be in Parliament tomorrow to give the House its full complements of Members of Parliament while the 2014 budget statement is presented.

The group said it is yet to conclude on any decision to boycott Tuesday’s reading of the budget.

There had been rumours over the weekend that the minority was due to announce a boycott to demonstrate their displeasure over last Friday’s 2.5 percent increase in the VAT threshold by the majority side in Parliament.

Addressing a press conference on Monday, Minority Leader, Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu said “We have not taken any such decision. No such decision has been taken,”.

“Between Friday and tomorrow we still have so many hours before us and we will still be evaluating the events as they unfold. We have agreed to meet tomorrow at 9am,” he added.
