Tertiary Level Students Meet with Members of the P.C.C.

Henry Charles Usher

Today, at the Jaguar Auditorium at the University of Belize, Belmopan Campus, students from U.B., Galen and other tertiary institutions got an opportunity to attend a presentation by members of the People’s Constitution Commission and its secretariat. The students were able to ask questions and voice their concerns, even make suggestions as it relates to the constitutional reform process that is underway. Today, News Five was able to get a comment from Minister Henry Charles Usher about this event.

“The PCC is mandated to carry out educational campaigns, consultation campaigns and then to write the final report that will be submitted to the national assembly. And it is an eighteen-month period that they have been given to do this. I know that there have been some sessions, some educational sessions arranged so far. I think those were done not through the PCC, but rather through individual organizations. On Saturday, I attended one organized by the National Kriol Council at Swift Hall and it was a very educational session that we were at. Attorney Anthony Sylvester was explaining the constitution; explaining the role of the PCC. I didn’t have the chance to go to the one at UB, but I want to try to make as many as I can. And then in terms of the PCC official consultation process, they will be publishing a schedule so that everybody knows where they will be in which particular district. They will also be utilizing social media, so I encourage all Belizeans to somehow contribute, learn about the constitution and certainly offer their recommendations.”
