CRC Submit Recommendation To Pres. Sirleaf
The Constitution Review Committee (CRC) has submitted several recommendations for amendment of the 1986 Constitution to President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.
The recommendations were derived from the National Constitution Conference (NCC) held some time ago.
According to CRC Chairperson, Cllr. Gloria M. Scott, the body recommended that customary land rights, the rights of land owners to share the incomes from natural resources found in their land should become constitutional.
Cllr. Scott made the disclosure Tuesday during a brief meeting the CRC held with registered political parties on the outcomes of the National Constitution Review Conference at its headquarters in the Monrovia suburb of Congo Town.
She indicated that the committee also recommended the reduction of the tenure of the presidency and legislature and decentralization of government.
She pointed out that the committee further recommended the protection of persons with disability, protection of a constitutional guarantee to ensure women participation in national affairs and family protection.
Cllr Scott disclosed that the committee is expected to present its report to the National Legislature. LINA
