Politics of Inclusion

BARBADOS/GRENADA (Naked Departure) — POLITICS OF INCLUSION, a step in the right direction.

GRENADA just held a referendum/vote on the issue of reforming it’s 1974 Constitution, the result of voting spoke of the wishes of the citizenry.  Voters also turned down the opportunity to replace the London-based Privy Council with the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) as the island’s final court.  THE PEOPLE OF THE NATION MUST DECIDE FIRST as the means for going forward IN ANY MATTER that will affect them.

THIS IS GOOD GOVERNANCE, though some tweeking was needed, detailed recommended changes were put forth with insufficient options.

As Antigua and Barbuda is due to hold a referendum next year on the CCJ, …”The people of Antigua and Barbuda will be asked one question in the simplest of ways…”Should we replace the Privy Council with the Caribbean Court of Justice?”  THIS APPROACH WILL CREATE ISSUES as it will not address the key issues involve nor will it allow for a greater understanding of
all that it relates, especially the pros and cons.

THE GRENADA MODEL OF REFERENDUM VOTING BY CONSTITUENTS is applaudable.  Constituents must by strong voice show the rejection of representatives acting without the imput of those who they represent.

    1. It is regrettable that, that percentage voted. Those who abstained for what ever reason only forfeited their opportunity to make a difference. The point is, Grenada recognizes their citizens input as important in decision making unlike many nations worldwide.
