President Adama Barrow has announced his intentions to revive discussions on the Draft Constitution, emphasizing the importance of engaging all stakeholders in the process.
Speaking at a press conference following the conclusion of the Meet The People Tour, President Barrow highlighted the significance of the constitution as a governing document for the country.
During the conference, the President expressed his commitment to bringing together all relevant parties to address differences, foster collaboration, and reach a consensus on the proposed constitution. President Barrow acknowledged the need for a comprehensive approach, stating, “A constitution is a document, a document that will manage the affairs of this country. In that, we have stakeholders. Is the same document, but we want all stakeholders around the table so that we sit together, we iron out our differences, and see if we can reach in consensus on it so that we can adopt the document and sell it to the Gambian people. Because obviously we have to go for referendum. Maybe we are the ones in a privileged position, but we have people around the country, our communities, they have a say in it. So that is the constitution I’m talking about. It is the same constitution.”
The president made these remarks during a press conference on Wednesday about the just-concluded Meet The People Tour.
