The leader of the Economic Fighters League, Ernesto Yeboah and one other person were on Friday morning arrested at Parliament House for protesting against the proposed 450-seater new chamber for Parliament.

 Two Arrested for Protesting Against Proposed Parliament Chamber

They were protesting in the public gallery during proceedings.

They reportedly stood up during proceedings and shouted, “drop that chamber, drop that chamber.”

That action attracted security personnel at Parliament House who then approached the two men and arrested them.

The proposed new chamber is to house facilities including diplomatic offices, a library, a museum, a church, a mosque, eateries, press conference rooms, galleries, a car park, an upper gallery garden, a post office and other facilities.
