By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: On January 18, 2023, the People’s Constitution Commission (PCC) met in Belmopan to review and discuss a draft strategic plan developed by the Secretariat to guide the work of the commission for the ensuing 15 months.
Representatives of the various organizations present considered suggestions made on how best to improve the draft document.
At the end of the meeting, the Secretariat was tasked with incorporating the suggested decisions before presenting a clean draft with the changes at the next meeting of the commission for unanimous adoption of its approved plan.
The PCC noted that the plan outlines 5 objectives including to have a fully capacitated People’s Constitution Commission and Secretariat with a well-defined strategic plan, communication and public outreach strategy and a working budget; to develop and execute a national public education campaign and a consultation strategy pertaining to constitutional reform; to complete the first draft report of the People’s Constitution Commission based on consultations with the Belizeans; to conduct national public consultations based on the first draft report and to complete and submit the final report to the Prime Minister.
The vision of the PCC is to faithfully represent the interests of Belizeans and secure the common good for generations yet unborn.
The mission seeks to advance the common good of Belize, through a transparent, wide-ranging, impartial and meaningful process of consultations and to reflect and deliberate on constitutional changes, if any, agreed upon by Belizeans, at home and in the diaspora, for a new or amended Constitution.
