Design of proposed new 450-seater parliamentary chamber

Ghana Centre for Democratic Development (CDD-Ghana) has described the proposed construction of a new Parliamentary Chamber as a misplaced priority.

A statement signed by the Communications Specialist of CDD-Ghana, Efua Idan Atadja said: “CDD acknowledges the important constitutional tasks and roles assigned to Parliament and believes with many Ghanaians that the Parliament of Ghana must be adequately empowered and resourced to discharge its responsibilities and roles effectively.”
