Executive Powers of the President under the Sierra Leonean Constitution

Executive Powers of the President under the Sierra Leonean Constitution: Report to the Sierra Leone Constitutional Review Committee concerning Executive Appointments and Commissions (September 2014)

This Report was prepared for the United Nations Development Programme, in partnership with the Department for International Development (UK) and the Constitutional Review Committee (CRC) for Sierra Leone.

The report focuses on Presidential executive powers, and in particular the relationship between the President and constitutional commissions.  The report provides support to the CRC in its task of drafting the new Constitution for Sierra Leone, which is expected to be completed by the end of 2014.  The report summarises the existing provisions relating to executive powers of the Presient and constitutional commissions in Sierra Leone, and contrasts these provisions with those of other Sub-Saharan African jurisdictions: South Africa, Ghana, Namibia, Kenya and Zimbabwe.  In light of this analysis, the report presents a series of recommendations to the CRC regarding constitutional provisions on executive powers of the President and constitutional commissions.

Further information about the CRC can be found here at their website.
