GRENADA'S REFERENDUM ON CONSTITUTIONAL REFORM

On November 24, 2016 Grenadians were afforded the opportunity to vote on seven bills in the first ever referendum on constitutional reform to be held in that country. Of the 71,241 registered voters, a mere 32.4% or just over 21,000 persons voted. The outcome was an overwhelming rejection of all seven bills.

The four bills most heavily rejected were the Rights and Freedoms Bill ("No" 76%, "Yes" 24%); Term of Office of Prime Minister ("No" 74%, "Yes" 26%); Ensuring the Appointment of Leader of the Opposition ("No" 72%, "Yes" 28%); and Fixed Date for Elections ("No" 67%, "Yes" 33%). The CCJ and other Justice Related Matters; Elections and Boundaries Commission; and Name of State Bills, performed relatively well, although support for those Bills significantly fell short of the two-thirds majority required for success. In this article I will offer some broad reflections on referendums generally; as well as suggestions for the way forward in Grenada.
