Premier and Minister for Finance Hon. Andrew Fahie announced that a Committee that would be tasked with reviewing the Territory’s Constitution will be in place by the end of September.  

This announcement was made by the Premier on September 3 while he was a guest on the Honestly Speaking With Claude Skelton-Cline radio talk show.

In addition to the Committee Hon. Fahie disclosed that feedback and opinion on the long overdue Constitutional review would be garnered at an informal meeting of the House of Assembly that will be called soon.

In mentioning plans for the informal meeting and Constitutional review Hon. Fahie said: “We are going to be have an informal meeting very soon of the members of the House and that is going to be one of the things on the agenda — in terms of the Constitutional Review because the time to push for that is now.”

Oversight and transparency seem to be areas that will be looked at during the Constitutional review process. In making that disclosure Hon. Fahie said: “How do we improve upon the accountability and transparency, not only of elected officials but of governors and also how do we make sure that we continue to strengthen our self-governance in a way. We are not talking independence, but that we make sure that we continue to show that we are continuing to mature,” the Premier added.
