Steering Committee discuss electoral reforms, devolution & executive

Steering Committee 2 1

The Steering Committee appointed by the Constitutional Assembly held its 27th meeting today. The three main areas under discussion presently are: Electoral Reforms, devolution and the Executive.

While extensive discussions have been held in respect of certain areas, no definite decisions will be made until all matters are fully considered.

The six sub-committees have also concluded their work. The Steering Committee will consider their reports before trying to reach consensus on all matters. In the process of reaching such consensus, details of discussions will not be made public for the time being. Once a consensus is reached, the Interim Report will be presented to the Constitutional Assembly, as envisaged in the Resolution of 9th March 2016 that set up the Constitutional Assembly. The Steering Committee will endeavour to submit the Interim Report to the Constitutional Assembly by November 2016.
