People’s Constitution Commission Updates Engagement with Belizeans Abroad
For its public consultation and education campaign, the People’s Constitution Commission (PCC) divided the country into four zones with the diaspora representing the fifth zone. While several information sessions have been held across Belize since the PCC’s campaign launched at the end of June, questions arose about the participation of zone five. PCC Chairman Anthony Chanona spoke to Love News to give an update on the engagement Belizeans abroad have had with the commission.
Anthony Chanona, Chairman, PCC: “We’re trying to partner with the Ambassador for Tourism Diaspora Relations, Ambassador Murphy. The prime minister is off to Dallas and we’re taking the opportunity of that trip to have them take up literature, some of the books that we’ve produced, paraphernalia, constitutional paraphernalia, for distribution into the diaspora. But the diaspora zone itself has been very active. They have a roster of virtual presentations. They have held two so far, very successful. The first one was done by Darrell Bradley. The second one was done by Mr. Ed Usher. And we are harvesting the question and answers data from those sessions which will lead into what we call the citizens report, which will be finished and compiled by October.”
The northern zone of the PCC held an information session at the Muffles College Auditorium in Orange Walk last night.
