The Acting Director of Public Affairs of Parliament, Mrs Kate Addo, in an interview with Accra based Neat FM, has disclosed that Parliament has dropped the idea to build a new 450-seater chamber.
The chamber which was estimated at $200m was proposed to be built but received a lot of negative reactions from the public.
Mrs Addo, when asked if the House was bent on going ahead with the project, said: “Before projects are completed, feasibility studies are done but you would realise that this new chamber is not something that is workable for now’.
According to Mrs Addo, the decision by Parliament not to go ahead with the project now does not necessarily mean money has been wasted.
There was a social media campaign against the project and a demonstration was staged last Friday at the premises of Parliament.
