The Vice Chair-man of Parlia-ment’s Finance Committee, Patrick Yaw Boamah, has confident that main points of govern-ment’s debt alternate programme will likely be delivered to Parliament for approval.

His assurance adopted the Minority caucus’ renewed requires the Finance Minister to place the programme prior to Parliament for legislative scrutiny.

Before seconding a movement for adjournment the day prior to this, the Mi-nority Leader and MP for Tamale South, Haruna Iddrisu, mentioned the verdict to change Ghana’s public debt may now not be on the beck and speak to of the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta, and that Parliament had a task to play.

“With the debt alternate, they will have to lay the main points right here for the folk of Ghana.

“The Minister of Finance can not simply stroll (about) as though the whole lot within the nation is deter-mined through him. If you might be doing haircuts and converting contents of settlement, whether or not home or exterior, they’re contractual and the ones contractuals include tasks.

“He must come and lay a paper in this House on how he intends to walk the debts,” Mr Iddrisu mentioned.

According to him, “when this House approves those agree-ments, we do so consistent with Article 181 of the 1992 Consti-tution with terms and condi-tions. You can’t vary those terms at your pleasure or as it pleases the Minister of Finance. Those terms and conditions must be brought to this House for our scrutiny to satisfy ourselves,” he reiterated. Responding to the worries of the Minority Lead-er, Mr Boamah, MP, Okaikoi Central mentioned Parliament would now not be left in the dead of night in terms of the programme.

“All the ones considered necessary paperwork could be subjected to parlia-mentary scrutiny.

“The first step is what has been introduced. Every step that calls for the scrutiny of the peo-ple’s consultant, we will be able to have the ability to have a look at that.
