Prime Minister John Briceno has announced the formation of a commission that will oversee the reform proposals within the public service. Here is how the leader explained it in yesterday’s address.
John Briceno, Prime Minister of Belize: “I am announcing our government’s decision to appoint a Constitutional Reform Commission to undertake a comprehensive review of the Constitution, engage in national consultations, and make specific recommendations to the Ministry of Constitutional Reform for any changes deemed necessary. And I take the opportunity to invite the Leader of the Opposition to join us when we send you a letter to join this commission.
The Commission shall be appointed on or before 31st October and have a one-year term of office.
As efforts at reform continue, the Ministry of E-Governance recently passed major legislations that give life to Government’s plan to achieve and roll out its digital agenda and action plan that will see government services such as vital statistics, criminal records, land applications, e-passport services, and the creation of a national ID.
This is in context to our commitment to an open government through digital transformation for the benefit of all.”
