The Minority in Parliament has accused the Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta of rewriting the Mid-year Budget statement after over a 2-hour delay.

The government had advertised Thursday, July 23 at 10 am for Mr. Ofori-Atta to present the statement to Members of Parliament.

However, as at 1 pm, the Finance Minister was still not in the chamber.

He said the Minister is changing the content of what was agreed upon in Cabinet after meeting with the NPP leadership in the House.
