QUESTION OF THE DAY

During the debate on the state of the nation address of the President and the adjournment debate at the National Assembly, the member for Serekunda asked the Vice President what the stand of the executive is regarding the constitutional reform process that was promised the Gambian people. The Vice President indicated that the government has done what it was supposed to do and that the outcome is yet to be reviewed by cabinet; and that since the members are calling for a way forward they will review the outcome and come up with a position.

The member for Serekunda further quoted the relevant sections of the Constitution and Standing Orders during the adjournment debate and asked the Attorney General and Minister of Justice that because of the complexity of the process whether it was not necessary to have a national dialogue before submission of the bill on the Constitution to the National Assembly and whether it was not prudent to commence dialogue on the way forward. He responded that since he inherited the process it could have been best before the bill was presented but he does not see anything wrong for a dialogue on the way forward. He observed that he could not make pronouncement on the matter until cabinet reviews development and takes a position on the matter.

Foroyaa will follow up development as the nation awaits a way forward on constitutional reform.
