The Constitution Review Implementation Committee (CRIC) has submitted?a draft bill for the amendment of entrenched provisions in the 1992?Constitution to the Attorney-General and Minister of Justice, the?Chairman of the CRIC, Professor E.V.O. Dankwa, has said.
The submission of the draft bill paves the way for work to start on?the processes towards the conduct of a referendum to decide whether or?not Ghanaians are in favour of the amendments.
From the Attorney-General, the bill is expected to be submitted to the?Cabinet for discussion, after which it will be referred to Parliament?and later to the Council of State.
The bill will then be sent back to Parliament for it to give its?approval for the conduct of the referendum.
Forty per cent of the electorate is required to participate in the?referendum and 75 per cent of that figure is required to vote in
favour of the amendment before the President gives accent to it.
