Provincial Autonomy

Law review to propose autonomy for provinces

A recent review of the Organic Law by the Constitutional Law Reform Commission provides for provincial autonomy as well as a clause for provinces to manage their own finances.

CLRC Chairman, Dr Eric Kwa, said the commission was asked by the Government to review the law with a specific focus on ‘autonomy.’

“We want to provide opportunity for our provinces to get autonomy. And in that window, we also want to give them financial autonomy,” said Kwa.
