Law makers will commence debate on government’s budget statement and economic policy document for 2011 financial year today.

Finance Minister Dr. Kwabena Duffuor presented the budget to the public two weeks ago.

The extended leadership of Parliament over the weekend were tutored on the contents of the budget at a workshop in Koforidua.

Deputy Majority Leader Rashid Pelpuo told Joy News he expects the Minority to cooperate having been exposed to the many good things in the budget.

“Behind close doors, they have seen some [hope] in [the budget], they have shown likeness for part of the budget, they have demonstrated that the budget is a good piece of financial statement that we can all support,” he said.
