White House denies building 2nd Oval Office

Washington, Feb 6 (EFE).- The White House on Wednesday denied building a second Oval Office for President Barack Obama to work in pending the completion of renovations at the executive mansion.

White House chief spokesman Jay Carney denied the report recently published by the Real Clear Politics Web site that said Obama was going to move into a "nearly identical replica" of the Oval Office because of the ongoing construction work.

"Reports about a replica Oval Office are false and no one is moving from the West Wing, certainly not - no decisions about that have been made and not on any time frame," Carney said.

Since the Oval Office was built in the White House in 1909, it has undergone numerous repairs, technological upgrades and restoration work.

Herbert Hoover, for example, had to make significant repairs to the presidential office after an electrical fire in 1929 and for a brief time he moved his workspace to the Navy Department.

Real Clear Politics also claimed that Obama's top advisors would temporarily move with him to the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, which is part of the White House compound.
