Providenciales, TCI, September 16, 2016 – Cabinet, on Wednesday approved changes to the At Large voting ballot. The Elections Office presented a new form required because of the extraordinary number of candidates expected to offer.
There are 22 in this category so far; five from each political party and the remaining seven of which Magnetic Media is aware are running ‘independent.’ There was to be alteration in the layout and the colour; the ballot paper last election was green.
The changes now have to pass through the House of Assembly. Also discussed at that Cabinet meeting, hurricane readiness with the DDME; reordering of land in the Five Cays/Chalk Sound district and challenges at the prison.
In recent years, including earlier this summer, inmates have been attacked and subsequently hospitalized; the incident this summer required the Police to restore calm at Her Majesty’s Prison in Grand Turk. A working group has gotten the green light to help right the wrong at H.M.P.
