National Assembly seeking to vote on constitutional revision proposal next May


The National Assembly plans to draw up a proposal
to revise the constitution by February. The goal is to have the bill prepared for
submission to parliament by next March and ready for a full floor vote in May. The amendment will focus on limiting presidential
authority. Part of efforts to ensure executive power
is shared with the prime minister…. and to root out corruption. A dedicated bipartisan committee is expected
to speed up discussions in November,… after the National Assembly is done with its audit
of government bodies this month. There are plans to hold public debates on
contentious issues,… and take into account the voices of constitutional and governmental
institutions. If all goes according to plan,… a referendum
is expected to take place next June in tandem with local elections.
