Parliament has set up a 20-member mediation team to be co-chair by leaders to resolve the 2022 budget disagreements.

The mediation team is made up of 10 MPs each from the Majority and Minority caucuses.

The team has also been tasked to find an amicable solution to matters that could be handled at the leadership level other than the floor of the house.

The team is expected to start work on Thursday, 2 December 2021.

The Majority caucus in Parliament on Tuesday, November 30, approved the 2022 Budget statement after the NDC MPs boycotted proceedings after failing to reach an agreement with the Majority over the status of the budget.

While the Majority insisted the rejection of the budget last Friday was unlawful, the Minority maintains the House followed due process in rejecting it.

A Series of meetings to resolve the standoff yielded no results as the majority and the Executive stood on their grounds of not presenting a new budget.

All the 137 NDC MPs consequently boycotted today’s sitting without even registering their names in the attendance book.

Below is the list to resolve the 2022 budget impasse
