Ghana has had almost two decades of uninterrupted Constitutional Rule under the Fourth Republic , basing itself on the 1992 Constitution. This is an important feat that must be welcomed, commended and also periodically reviewed for good housekeeping to plan for the future.
The Constitution Review Commission was set up by a Constitutional Instrument 2010 (C.I.) 64 as a Commission of Inquiry to conduct a consultative review of the operation of the 1992 Constitution. This Review provides a platform for the people of Ghana to express opinions on the fundamental law which governs their lives. That represents a true expression of democracy; nothing more, nothing less.
As promised, the Constitution Review Commission is continuing to reach out to Ghanaians in the Diaspora. This time around, it is the turn of Ghanaians in the UK to contribute their thoughts and experiences on Ghana 's 1992 Constitution. This Diaspora Consultation, in London, will give opportunity to the Ghanaian Community to discuss the operation of the 1992 Fourth Republican Constitution, particularly its strengths, and weaknesses and to make submissions for possible amendments to the Constitution.
