IT’S OFFICIAL: PALIAMENT DROPS DECISION TO CONSTRUCT A NEW CHAMBER BUT HINTS OF FUTURE PLANS


Parliament has backed down on its controversial decision to construct a new parliamentary chamber.

This was contained in a statement issued by the Public Affairs Directorate after a parliamentary board meeting held on Monday.

The statement said “the Parliamentary Service Board, at its meeting on July 8, 2019, considered the burning issue of the development of a proposed new Parliamentary Chamber.

It added that “the Board, has, upon reviewing representations made to it by well-meaning Ghanaians, accordingly taken the development of the new Chamber block out of its present agenda.”

Meanwhile, the statement indicated that the decision to have a new chamber shall remain an agenda of parliament in the near future.

“The development of the Parliamentary enclave and a new Chamber block and offices shall, however, remain an essential and integral part of the future plans of the Legislature, in a bid to provide a strong, accountable, responsive and transparent parliament to serve the purpose of Parliament.”
