These are results from the Antigua Barbuda Electoral Commission (ABEC) according to constituency. Perhaps not so surprising Barbuda voted overwhelmingly against the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) – 24 per cent FOR and 72 per cent AGAINST.
The electorates in Antigua and Barbuda have voted to stay with the London-based Privy Council as the country’s final court of appeal.
52.4 per cent of the people who voted did so in favour of the London Court during what was considered a historic referendum last night (Tuesday).
47.96 per cent of the electorate voted for the CCJ.
The total votes cast were 17782. The number of valid votes however stood at 17743 (excluding rejected and spoiled ballots).
Supervisor of Elections Lorna Simon says the voter turnout represented only 33.55 per cent of the total registered voters (56,999).
Results came out shortly after 10 p.m. and there were no box by box results, instead the Commission chose to give one final result.
