Opposition Leader, Mark Golding, wants the Electoral Commission of Jamaica, ECJ, enshrined in the Constitution of Jamaica.
Mahiri Stewart has the details.
The Opposition leader says as Jamaica embarks on constitutional reform, some important institutions, such as the ECJ, should be entrenched in the Constitution.
Mr. Golding was responding to questions from members of the media on Sunday afternoon, following a meeting of the PNP’s National Executive Council at Calabar High School in St. Andrew.
He told journalists that in time, the Integrity Commission is another institution that must be entrenched.
The Opposition Leader concedes that the process of entrenchment can be frustrating due to what he calls technical challenges.
Meanwhile, the Opposition Leader says the PNP have asked for a meeting with Speaker of the House of Representatives, Marisa Dalrymple-Philibert.
This after the Opposition walked out of parliament during the closing budget presentation by the Finance Minister last Tuesday, over what they said was the biased manner in which the Speaker was wielding her authority.
Mr. Golding says the meeting is aimed at clarifying how parliament should be supervised.
