Local Government Elections Coming?

Hon Don Hue Gardiner said there is much to be considered including whether the local government reps will be elected… how they can elected and how much money should be budgeted for them to run the islands’ affairs, themselves.

Also speaking to the issue, which has seen a back and forth between the PNP Administration and the PDM Official Opposition was Home Affairs Minister, Amanda Missick who said this financial year could not bear the implementation of the concept.
