The Parliamentary Service Board has at least for now, dropped the proposed new chamber block for Members of the legislature.
This follows backlash with the public over the unveiling of the architectural design for the proposed new chamber by the Speaker of Parliament, Rt. Hon. Prof. Aaron Michael Oquaye, on Friday, June 28, 2019.
The Parliamentary Service Boarch which is chaired by the Speaker is expected to announce their decision later in the day after a crunch meeting over the matter.
The Acting Public Affairs Director, Parliament of Ghana, Kate Addo, who confirmed the news in an interview said the temporal halt over the decision to construct a new chamber for the lawmakers is to afford the House an opportunity to engage the public further over the issue.
“The #Dropthatchamber has been dropped for a new #letstalkmore”, she said.
