BZ Parliament


The National Assembly moved to Independence Plaza in Belmopan after Belize City’s near-total destruction by a hurricane. The architecture mimics a pre-Columbian Mayan temple with Brutalist elements. It is a bicameral parliament with a House of Representatives made up of 31 directly elected members and a Senate with 15 appointed members.
