The Parliamentary Service Board has proposed the building of a new 450-seater chamber in Parliament to accommodate more members
“We need to always plan ahead,there is nothing wrong with building a new Parliamentary chamber, it will help in accommodating more MPs in future,’Klutse Avedzi exclusively told Kwame Tutu on Anopa Nkomo on Accra based Kingdom FM 107.7
The 450-seater new project has been awarded to renowned British-Ghanaian architect, David Adjaye, but Parliament is yet to determine the total cost of construction.
The new structure is expected to have libraries, a parliamentary museum, prayer areas for MPs of all religions, a canteen, interview areas, among others.
The current parliamentary chamber which can seat up to only 270 MPs, will be turned into an auxiliary conference facility for Parliament.
