Leaders of Parliament both the Majority and Minority side are set to address the general public concerning plans to build a new 450-seat chamber for Ghana’s Parliament.
The decision to build a new chamber for parliamentarians has been met with intense opposition from critics on social media who argue that the project is to the detriment of Ghanaian.
A group of ordinary Ghanaians is collecting two million signatures in a bid to force Parliament to halt its plans.
“Parliament intends to listen closely and attentively to the sentiments and views of the citizens and take appropriate actions,” a statement from the leadership of Parliament stated.
The construction is expected to begin before the end of 2019.
Famed architect, David Frank Adjaye, designed the model and at the Friday meeting, he took the parliamentarians through the proposed design and their concepts.
The new chamber will be a multi-purpose building with a chapel, mosque, eatery and a museum.
The planned construction was announced last Friday when members of the Parliamentary Service Board received a model for the proposed new Chamber.
