JM Parliament



Introduction

Jamaica's bicameral parliament is seated at the "George William Gordon House", named after a member of the House of Assembly - a predecessor to today's parliament - who was accused of instigating a revolt against colonial rule. A new building is in planning, as "Gordon House" only has one chamber. The Jamaican diaspora overseas might fund a new structure, as the country currently lives under the strict auspices of an IMF agreement on behalf of its indebtedness.
