The Constitutional Review Commission (CRC), which is currently embarked upon a review of the 1997 Constitution in accordance with the terms of the Constitutional Review Commission Act, 2017, wishes to advise the general public that its direct public consultations originally scheduled to commence on Monday, 29th October, 2018, have now been postponed. The public consultations were scheduled to commence in the North Bank Region. The postponement has been necessitated by the absence of needed funds to enable the CRC to undertake the public consultations.
However, the CRC expects that this postponement will last no more than a week. It therefore hopes to issue another press release in the coming week to advise precisely when the postponed public consultations will commence.
Any inconvenience caused by the postponement of the commencement of the public consultations is deeply regretted. The CRC advises the general public that it remains focused in carrying out its mandate as established under the Constitutional Review Commission Act, 2017.
