The federal charter drafted by the consultative committee and submitted to the president July 9 has doubled the number of government constitutional commissions.
From three constitutional commissions — the Civil Service Commission, the Commission on Elections and the Commission on Audit — granted autonomy by the 1987 Constitution to preserve the integrity and independence of their work, there are now six:
- Federal Civil Service Commission
- Federal Commission on Elections
- Federal Commission on Audit
- Federal Commission on Human Rights
- Federal Ombudsman Commission
- Federal Competition Commission
Here are the powers and functions of each commission.
