Mar 27, 2020, 9:54 PM

The Constitutional Review Commission has announced in a news release on Thursday that it will submit its much anticipated final Draft Constitution to His Excellency, President Adama Barrow at State House on Monday 30 March, 2020.

“This follows a series of consultations with Gambians at home and abroad as to how they wish to be governed in the new Draft Constitution. It could be recalled that, the CRC made a promise to Gambians at a press conference held on Monday 27th January, 2020 that it will submit the final Draft Constitution to the President not later than March, 2020.”

“It is gratifying to note that a lot of effort was  invested by Gambians from all walks of life to ensure that the Commission produces a Constitution that will stand the test of time and become a model for not only the African continent but the World at large.”

“The CRC will also  publish, on Tuesday 31st March, 2020, the final Draft Constitution and the accompanying Report on its website (www.crc220.org)  and via its social media platforms (Twitter: @crcgambia, Linkedin: crc@gambia and Facebook: Constitutional Review Commission, The Gambia) to give Gambians the opportunity to acquaint themselves with  the contents of this national document of great importance.”
