The Minister of Parliamentary Affairs, Mr Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, has called for a holistic review of the 1992 Constitution.
He said the COVID-19 pandemic and its unintended consequences had provided a good opportunity for the country to have a second look at the Constitution.
At a stakeholder engagement with civil society organisations on economic revitalisation amid COVID-19, he said, “Let’s shift the focus from the economy to the 1992 Constitution and why I think the COVID-19 pandemic and its unintended economic consequences call for a holistic review of the Constitution.
“This is a time for reset and for us, there can be no better time amidst all the changes to take a look at the Constitution,” he stated.
He said his ministry would, therefore, engage civil society organisations, people in academia and other stakeholders to discuss issues related to the Constitution.
