  Welcome

Sierra Leone currently operates on the basis of the 1991 Constitution. The Constitution signaled an end to one-party rule and ushered in a new political dispensation of multi-party democracy. However, the Constitution was endorsed three months after the civil war broke out. As part of the process of negotiating the end to the civil war, Article X of the July 1999 Lome Peace Accord provided for a review of the Constitution.

 

Subsequently, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC), established in 2002 also urged the Government of Sierra Leone to give "serious consideration" to the creation of a "new constitution", in order to contribute to human rights and democracy in the country. It has been long agreed by all political parties that the 1991 Constitution, while contributing to the development of peace and stability in the country, does not reflect the modern values of the country and requires amendment in order to facilitate the continued development of a democratic and stable country.

 

His Excellency the President of Sierra Leone, Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma officially launched the Constitutional Review process on 30th July, 2013 with the inauguration of the Constitutional Review Committee.

  CRC Abridged Draft Report - February 2016

The CRC’s task was to review the 1991 Constitution of Sierra Leone together with the Peter Tucker Constitutional Review Commission Report (PTCR) which was submitted to government in January 2008 as a working document.

During the two - year process the CRC carried out extensive consultations with Sierra Leoneans both inside the country and in the diaspora (Ghana and Kenya).

The main goal of the revised Constitution is to strengthen the existing multi-party democracy and to create an open and transparent society. This abridged draft has been produced to highlight the major recommendations from the CRC, for further consideration and validation by the people. Download Report here- [.doc] [.pdf]
