National Kriol Council Welcomes New Representative on People’s Constitution Commission
The National Kriol Council (NKC) has a new representative on the People’s Constitution Commission (PCC). Vice President of the NKC Michael Kemp, assumed the role of the PCC’s representative, after the former rep Anthony Sylvester left to take up the post of Attorney General of Belize. Kemp spoke with Love News today on initiatives that the Council is holding in collaboration with the PCC, and the importance of the Kriol population getting involved.
Kemp joins the NKC’s alternate representative, Adelia Young. Sylvester has reportedly pledged to continue supporting the work of the NKC on the commission where possible. The NKC is one of the 23 special interest groups that make up the PCC and will be supporting the Commission’s ongoing education and consultation campaign. The PCC is charged with making recommendations for amendments to Belize’s Constitution and is working towards producing a report to submit to government by May 2024.
