Coat of ArmsIn August 2012, the government appointed the Constitutional Commission “to conduct a comprehensive review of the Constitution of The Bahamas, and to recommend changes to the Constitution in advance of the 40th anniversary of Independence next year. These changes will require a national referendum to be held in due course so that the will of the people can be determined on the matter.”

The Committee conducted a wide array of private and public forms of consultations with eminent persons in civil society, government officials, special interest groups, the church, representatives from international agencies and the general public in a series of town meetings held throughout Nassau, as well as the major Family Islands.
