Prime Minister Andrew Holness says significant attempts at constitutional reform will begin next year.

Mr. Holness says the twin crises of Covid-19 and crime have shown inadequacies in the country’s laws.

The prime minister was speaking during the Jamaica Labour Party’s 78th Annual Conference held digitally on Sunday.

One of the areas Mr. Holness identified was education.

He says the long awaited Jamaica Teaching Council Bill should return to the House of Representatives early next year.

The prime minister also says the review of the education system commissioned last year is completed.
