Office Space Leader of Opposition

 
 
Office of Leader of the Opposition​​
 
The office space, located in the left wing on the first floor of the Old Parliament House was allocated to the then Leader of the Opposition in March 2015 to deliver on his parliamentary duties when attending the sittings of the Assembly. Moreover, subsequent Leaders of the Opposition have continued to occupy the said office space for the same purpose.
 
It has, at all times, been understood that the said office space would strictly be used for the carrying out of parliamentary related activities as opposed to political ones, the more so, as the said office space is located within the precincts of the Assembly, which, apart from hosting the Chamber and Office of the Speaker, is used strictly for the carrying out of parliamentary and incidental administrative activities.
 
Furthermore, no office space is allocated to any other party leaders.
 
It is a long established protocol that party leaders make declarations to/address the members of the press, present to cover parliamentary proceedings within the precincts of the Assembly on the sitting day itself or, exceptionally and generally, on the following day in the event of late night sittings.
