The leadership of Parliament is meeting with the Presidency on alternative arrangements for accommodation for new Members of Parliament.

Most of the new MPs who had high expectations of comfortable apartments to match the title honourable to their names are disappointed and some told Joy News they are virtually stranded.

“We had a premonition that we will be given a temporary place like a hotel to lodge [but that has not been done].

“We are still trying to adjust. On a personal note I have been able to get a place with my friends for the mean time, hoping that I can get a permanent place for myself so I can bring my family to join,” one of the MPs said.

“It is not easy. I am putting up in a hotel. It affects my whole set up and I know it can’t continue this way,” another protested.

Deputy Majority Leader Alfred Agbesi told Joy News leadership of the House is taking up the matter seriously and will soon get them positive results.
