No representation of National Kriol Council on the People’s Constitution Commission

But while the media and eighteen other entities will be represented in the Commission, one group that won’t is the National Kriol Council. The Council does not appear on the list of organizations and bodies that are asked to nominate one person and an alternate to the Commission. The Council fired off a press release this evening, saying (quote) “whether by accident or design the exclusion of the National Kriol Council is cause for alarm and constitutes a threat against every citizen that identifies as a descendant of those enslaved Africans who built the foundations of a politically independent Belize. The Council represents the largest group of Belizeans of African ancestry. It says that the exclusion is particularly egregious and is requesting an immediate correction to the bill that would allow for full participation and representatives of the Kriol.
