QUESTION OF THE DAY

On 4th June 2018 the Constitutional Review Commission came into being. According to the Act establishing the Commission, it is given a period of 18 months to complete its work. This means that its work should continue till December 2019. It is given the possibility of having its work extended by six months. It is therefore expected that this extension will allow the commission to function until May 2020 in order to complete its work.

Now that the three year mandate of the President is chaff in the wind, the nation must ensure that institutions established to carry out constitutional and electoral reforms are fit for purpose. There is need for thorough scrutiny of the instruments and a debate intensified on all issues of contention to come up with an instrument that all Gambians will embrace as their own constitution. Consultation should begin right away as to how to put up the best constitution and the best electoral law.
