Constitutional Review Commission to host public consultations

The Constitutional Review Commission (CRC) has announced its intension to commence public consultations and one-on-one meetings with residents.
According to the CRC, a number of persons and small groups previously expressed interest in meeting with the Commission.

“Interested persons will, therefore, now be able to register for day-time meetings by using the calendar on the Commission’s website,” said the CRC who said the Secretariat at the Commission will reply to confirm the meetings.

“Meetings spaces may be reserved from as early as Tuesday 1st November and for the entire month of November. In addition, general public meetings throughout the territory are being finalised and more details on these, including dates, will be communicated via the Commission’s website as well as through public announcements.”

The meantime, the commission said its website contains significant educational content including copies of relevant legislation, cases, and articles.

It further encouraged the public to review this information and submit any written comments via the ‘comments’ tool on its website.

“This will ensure that comments are captured and recorded fully and accurately. It is anticipated that opportunities for both public consultation and the submission of written comments will close by mid-December,” the CRC stated.

“The Commission looks forward to engaging with the community over the coming weeks. Meetings can be scheduled using the website from 8:30 am on Monday 31st October, 2022. The other features of the website will be available on Tuesday 1st November, 2022,” it added.
