Antigua/Barbuda says No to CCJ

0 1,159

The people of Antigua and Barbuda voted on Tuesday against switching to the CCJ as the country’s final appellate court.

The results of a referendum held by the Administration of Prime Minister Gaston Browne show that of the 17,743 persons who voted,  9,234, or 52.04 percent chose to remain with the London-based Privy Council while just 8.509 or 47.96 percent wanted the CCJ.

Antigua and Barbuda, like Grenada which also held a referendum on the CCJ on Tuesday, recorded a low voter turn out.
