The Constitution review process has reached a crucial stage in Liberia with the scheduled launch of civic education and consultations nationwide this Saturday, 15 February by the Constitution Review Committee or CRC at the Paynesville City Hall, outside Monrovia.
In a release, the CRC said immediately after the official launch, it will begin deploying civic educators and focal persons around the country to provide guidance to the populace and educate them about the review process.
The CRC has already divided the country into three regions to effectively cover the entire Liberia in the shortest possible time with two committee members and a technical staff being assigned to each region.
Region I, which comprised Grand Cape Mount, Bomi, Gbarpolu and Lofa Counties, is being headed by Rev. Jasper S. Ndaborlor with CRC Member, Dr. D. Elwood Dunn and a technical staff. Region II includes Margibi, Bong, Bassa, Rivercess and Sinoe Counties, headed by Soko V. Sackor with CRC Member, Hon. Amelia Ward and a technical staff.
Region III covers Nimba, Grand Gedeh, River Gee, Maryland and Grand Kru Counties, and is being headed by Cllr. Gloria Musu-Scott with CRC Member Rev. Kennedy Sandy and a technical staff.
Meanwhile, Montserrado County, which is the last county, stands along as a region and will have four days consultative meetings to be attended by all Committee Members.
According to the CRC Agenda, the civic education and consultations will be very intensive, inclusive, participatory, transparent, and are expected to generate proposals that would lead to the technical drafting of amendments that would be taken to a national conference.
CRC Chairperson, Cllr. Gloria M. Musu-Scott, has called on all Liberians to be in readiness to receive civic educators in their respective communities and to work with them.
