Antiguan PM Won’t Go Back to CCJ Referendum any Time Soon

Prime Minister of Antigua and Barbuda, Gaston Browne, says his government will not be pursuing any further constitutional reform in the short term.

His remarks follow the results of a referendum in which the people of Antigua and Barbuda voted to reject replacing the UK-based Privy Council with the Caribbean Court of Justice, CCJ as that country’s final appellate court.

Mr Browne blamed the Opposition United Progressive Party (UPP) for contributing to the result of the referendum rejecting the CCJ.

Prime Minister Browne was speaking last evening with Nationwide News.
