Election Monitoring Body the People’s Action for a Free and Fair Election says accusations levelled by political leaders against the Constitutional Council are gravely detrimental to the good of the country.

Addressing an open letter to Party Leaders representing Parliament, PAFFREL stressed undermining the Constitutional Council is no different to undermining all Commissions.

The Election Monitoring Body stressed if any issues exist within the Constitutional Council then collective responsibility must be admitted, as the Council consists of representatives of a broad spectrum of political parties.

Accordingly PAFFREL said if issues persist within the Constitutional Council, then Party Leaders must refrain from publicly undermining the Council and instead discuss and address such issues internally.
