People’s Constitution Commission Assured of Funding for Its Work

Minister of Public Service, Constitutional & Political Reform, Henry Charles Usher has assured that the People’s Constitution Commission (PCC) has enough funds to continue its work. Usher’s assurance comes after a letter to the editor in the Reporter Newspaper last week, alleged that the PCC was out of funds. He stressed that the PCC has only received two-thirds of its allotted funding and that the commission has access to the remaining funds. Usher said that the Ministry is not involved in the day-to-day activities of the commission, but gives its support whenever a request is made for the disbursement of funds.

PCC Chairman Anthony Chanona reached out to Love News last week to clarify that there were procedural bottlenecks that had stalled the disbursement of the funds, but that the work of the commission continues. The PCC is tasked with submitting a report to the Government of Belize, making recommendations for amendments to the country’s constitution. That report is due in May 2024.
