1 min


It seems Parliament is set to ‘drop that chamber’ indeed as Ghanaians have been calling for with incessant protests.

The Acting Public Affairs Director of Parliament, Kate Addo, revealed on Peace Fm this morning that Parliament has decided to scrap plans for the new chamber.

According to her, since legislators are representing their constituents and Ghanaians are railing against the idea, they have decided to listen to the people.

Addo said the decision was taken by Parliamentary leadership following a meeting on Saturday.

The acting director sought to stress that the decision was solely taken by Parliament with no input from the Executive.

Ghanaians have over the past few weeks been railing against a planned proposal to build a new $200m chamber for Members of Parliament. Protests have erupted against the decision which is considered ill timed considering the state the country is currently in.
