Prime Minister Bruce Golding says the Government of Jamaica continues to take several initiatives to improve governance and that some of these are either before Parliament for approval or will shortly be submitted.
Several of these commitments include: prime ministerial term limits, impeachment provisions, a special prosecutor to deal with corruption, whistleblower protection, tighter procedures for the award of government contracts, legal sanctions for breaches of the Code of Political Conduct and the regulation of political party financing.
“The Charter of Rights on which deliberations have gone on for more than 17 years will shortly become a reality as the final vote to insert it into the Constitution will be taken in Parliament at the end of March” the Prime Minister said.
Mr. Golding made these disclosures in his New Year’s address to the nation.Government Continues to Take Initiatives to Improve Governance
