Opposition Leader calls for report sent to Cabinet yesterday from the CRC, to be made public

Opposition Leader Mark Golding is calling for the report sent to cabinet yesterday from the Constitutional Reform Committee (CRC) to be made public.

Mr. Golding made the call moments ago at a press conference on the constitutional reform process.

The Opposition Leader has been critical of the approach put forward by the government regarding the country’s transition to a Republic.

He has also expressed concern about whether or not the recommendation to make the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) Jamaica’s final appeal court will be considered.

Mr. Golding said the process of reform must be fully open and transparent.

He added that the reform process should have been preceded by intense public education on the existing constitution, so that citizens would know what exists and where changes will be made.
