If elected Labour Party leader and Prime Minister, Chris Fearne will convene a conference that will debate governance and the rule of law.

Addressing the media on Saturday morning, Fearne said the conference will be spread over a period of time and will include the participation of the government, opposition, political parties, civil society and institutions.

One reform that he intends to put forward is a change in the way the police commissioner is appointed. If he becomes PM, Fearne said the police chief would be appointed via a two-third majority in Parliament.

The conference will also discuss the way judges and magistrates are appointed, political party financing and MPs’ salaries. It will serve as the basis for a constitutional reform and, when this happens, the President would also be asked to take part.
