The Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) has received a resounding endorsement from the Barbuda Council.
Addressing members of the National Coordinating Committee (NCC) who are currently on a two-day public education programme in Codrington, Chairman of the Barbuda Council David Shaw indicated that he “was enlightened” by the presentations.
He also suggested that some of the arguments against the adoption of the CCJ could be a means of distrust.
Meantime Chairman of the NCC, Ambassador Dr. Clarence Henry is urging persons to educate themselves about the operations of both courts in order to make an informed decision when the referendum is called.
Dr. Henry stressed that the process is inclusive and that there is no intention to conceal information or ideas from members of the public.
Additionally, Public Relations and Information Officer for ABEC, Anne Harewood George emphasized the importance of carrying out a registration drive to ensure that those 18 years of age and over who meet the criteria, register immediately.
She continued by pointing out that the role of ABEC is to inform the public with respect to how the referendum voting process will work.
