The Constitution Review Committee which started its consultations activities in Montserrado County has now extended same to other counties.


On the 11th of March 2013, the north-central region team met with residents of Bong Mines and Fouma District where the constitution review process was elaborated and interactive sessions held with citizens.


The jam packed hall demonstrated the commitment of Liberians to alter or amend certain portions of the 1986 constitution to suit current realities and promote the socio-economic and political wellbeing of Liberians.


The CRC north-central regional team headed by Hon. Soko V. Sackor and co-managed by Honorable Amelia Ward also met with citizens of Salala District on March 13, 2014 and preceded to Gbarnga City where a major town hall meeting is being held. The Team will leave Bong County to begin its Nimba consultations starting from Ganta City on March 15, 2014.


Team one and Team two will begin their southeastern and western regions tour on March 14, 2014 to deliver civic education and consult with citizens of the regions. The CRC’s Consultations are expected to expand citizens’ understanding of the constitution and the process and to importantly provide the environment for the submission of proposals that will lead to amendments.


Team one is headed by Cllr. Gloria Musu-Scott assisted by Rev. Kennedy Sandy, member of the CRC and will be coordinating and leading the consultation processes in Maryland, Grand Kru, Grand Gedeh, River Gee and Sinoe Counties. Rev. Dr. Jasper S. Ndaborlor will lead team two to Lofa, Gbarpolu, Bomi and Grand Cape Mount Counties and will be assisted by CRC member, Dr. D. Elwood Dunn.


The Constitution Review Committee is appealing to all citizens of Liberia to get involved in the consultation processes as this is the most important phase of the constitution review process. It is their expectation that citizens of the districts will show enthusiasm and commitment to the change they have been yearning for.
