REPORT OF THE CONSTITUTIONAL REVIEW COMMITTEE 2016

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The constitutional review process in Sierra Leone is the result of a national commitment made in article 10 of the Lomé Peace Accord 1999 and recommendations made in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission report.

The first Constitutional Review Commission was established in 2007, headed by Dr Peter Tucker. The Commission submitted its report in 2008 (known as the Peter Tucker Report), and recommended that certain aspects of the Constitution of Sierra Leone 1991 (the 1991 Constitution) should be amended. In addition, the National Conference on Development and Transformation in 2011 strongly recommended that the 1991 Constitution should be reviewed in order to expedite national development and consolidate peace and democracy.
