Constitutional Commission endorses proposed Constitution changes, calls for some of their own

The Constitutional Commission supports the Premier’s plans to remove the UK’s power to legislate for Cayman.
Today (4 July) the Commission released its response on Hon. Alden McLaughlin’s proposed changes saying while members agree areas like the Queen’s Reserve powers and the UK parliamentary powers need to be clarified they also had some changes of their own.

They said clarification is needed on the appointment of the Premier and the constitutional recognition of the appointment and roles of councilors, as well as, residency requirements for voters and those contesting elections. They said these elements also need attention when the review process begins.
