Minister Usher Commends People’s Constitution Commission’s Reform Efforts

While the People’s Constitution Commission (PCC) is ramping up its efforts, the Minister of Political and Constitutional Reform, Henry Charles Usher, is commending their work. The diverse group of stakeholders has a window of 18 months to gather varying opinions from all sectors of society. They will then present to the government a list of recommendations and their findings from the consultation process. Usher says that he is impressed with the PCC’s efforts and expects that the process will result in positive changes to the laws of the land.

Henry Charles Usher, Minister of Public Service:The PCC is in full swing now in terms of their education campaign. As you’ve seen in the media, in the news reports, they have been having different education sessions. They had a two big sessions with teachers one in Corozal and one in Belize City. They’ve had with the security forces. I believe yesterday they had one with the media. They’ve been going around the country setting up these education campaigns. They’ve also met with the different district association of village councils in order to set up meetings in different villages as well. So it’s in full swing. Following this education campaign, of course, is the consultation process of the PCC. That’s when Belizeans will have the opportunity to really take part in how they want to see the constitution written, how they want to see their country governed and I think that is a critical exercise that this PCC is actually doing. As we’ve said time and again, we’re moving away from representative democracy to participatory democracy and for our Belizeans to participate, this is the best chance for them that they’ve ever independence.”
