The Office of the President had earlier revised the budget estimate for the Parliamentary service by GH¢119.8 million, citing reduced fiscal space in the national budget as a result of statutory and debt service obligations.

On the other hand, out of the GH¢470,415,847 million the Judiciary requested, the Executive recommended an estimate of GH¢437,397,640.

The new budget estimates followed an earlier rejection of the budget estimates for the two arms of government by the Speaker, Mr Alban Kingsford Sumana Bagbin.
