The Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta remains in office after Parliament concluded the debate for a vote of censure against the Minister.
The Minority caucus filed a motion of censure against the Finance Minister, accusing him of mismanagement of the economy, financial recklessness, conflict of interest, and gross mismanagement of the economy.
In parliament on Thursday, December 8, 2022, members from both sides of the house took turns to debate the vote of censure against the minister after a report from the Ad-hoc committee was presented.
The debate concluded with a secret ballot to decide the fate of Mr Ofori-Atta.
Meanwhile, after the secret balloting, the minority caucus who filed the motion against the finance minister could not get the required number of votes to remove Ken Ofori- Atta from office.
The minority needed two-thirds of the total number of MPs to vote for the censure but that was not the case since the Majority led by Osei Kyei Mensah-Bonsu walk out of the chamber and did not partake in the secret voting.
136 National Democratic Congress MPs voted to demand the removal of Mr Ofori-Atta but fell short of the two-thirds constitutional requirement for the motion to pass through.
