Providenciales, 27 Jan 2015 – When the House of Assembly convenes today for debate in the capital, Grand Turk on the agenda is a motion to adopt the Constitutional Review Committee Report. In last week’s Post Cabinet Press Conference, we asked the Premier if he was satisfied with the public response on the final document.
Premier Rufus Ewing: “Most of the response from the public, some of them might have been submitted to individual members and I think we will see a very lively debate in the House, even though some recommendations were made and those recommendations were reflective of comments made by the public during the town hall consultation; so some of them are relevant. I am sure that during the course of the debate we will have additional recommendations coming forth because I know myself I have a number of recommendations that were not in the report.”
The Constitutional Review Committee Report which was presented to the Premier in late November by its Chairman, Daniel Malcolm was to be introduced in the House in 2014’s final session; but it was delayed with the announcement by Hon Rufus Ewing that he wanted to invite even more feedback from the general public.
