Opposition Leader: Referendum petition not losing steam


Are efforts to trigger a people-initiated referendum on the controversial cruise port project losing steam?

Opposition Leader Hon. Ezzard Miller says no. He told Cayman 27 he believes it’s the other way around.

Mr. Miller said he and his Opposition colleagues have just started gathering signatures in their communities.

He told CPR Cayman, the grassroots group behind the petition, does have some valid reasons for not sharing its numbers.

“I don’t think it is anything trying to be secretive or anything, I think it’s just a matter of the difficulty, and getting the books back, you only get the books back when they’re completed, but they’ve got 100 books out there and each book has 100 I think, 100 signatures,” said Mr. Miller.

Mr. Miller said he himself has four books circulating.

CPR Cayman would need to collect close to 5,300 signatures to force a yes or no vote on the project.
