The construction of a new building for the Indonesian Parliament in Jakarta has been delayed following opposition from activists and politicans.

Designed by architect Budi Sukada, the Rs1.2tn ($133m) building includes office spaces, a swimming pool, spa and a fitness centre.

The design has received negative feedback from activists and politicians for being too grand.

Work on the project which was originally scheduled to start in October this year will be delayed until a technical team has re-evaluated the project.

Bidding for the construction has also been stopped, according to the Jakarta Post.
