Algeria has approved a project to construct a complex housing its upper and lower parliaments, a government report said on Monday.

Housing and Construction Minister Mohamed Tarek Belaribi discussed the “Parliamentary City” project at the Ministry on Sunday.

A statement published on the Ministry’s website said several companies are bidding for the project designs.

“The Minister discussed submitted designs for the project, which includes a large parliamentary city,” the statement said.

The complex comprises buildings that will house the Council of the Nation (Upper Chamber) and the People’s National Assembly (Lower Chamber), it added.
