Antiguan constitutional referendum

Referenda are held in Antigua and Barbuda and Grenada to decide whether to maintain the UK-based Judicial Committee of the Privy Council as the final court of appeal, or to adopt the appellate jurisdiction of the Caribbean Court of Justice; both are rejected by voters.

The referendum seeking the permission of the electorate to move to the Caribbean Court of Justice as Antigua and Barbuda’s final appellate court, fell woefully short of the 67 percent threshold required, leaving the prime minister “disappointed.”
