The Member of Parliament for Suhum Frederick Opare-Ansah, says Parliament cannot make changes to Legislative Instruments (LIs) brought before it by government.
He indicated that the challenge with LIs is that Parliament actually has very little control over them.
To him, when an LI is laid before the House, it requires two-third majority of all MPs to vote to annul it, otherwise it would automatically come into being.
Mr Opare-Ansah made these remarks in a presentation at the World Public Services Day celebration in Accra.
He said there is a lot of ‘mischief’ that can be created by the use of LIs.
Mr Opare-Ansah who is also a Member of the African Parliamentarians Network on Illicit Financial Flows and Tax said the Network has the desire and commitment to spearhead the fight against illicit financial flows in Africa.
He said the Association’s main aim is to provide a platform for African legislators to undertake sustained advocacy.
