Summary of Proposals
The launch of government’s constitutional public discussion paper - The Cayman Islands’ Constitution: A Reflection of Who We Are – Summary of Proposals on Saturday,12 January 2008, signaled the start of the public consultation phase (Phase Two) of the Constitutional Modernization Initiative (CMI).
More than 600 people attended the colourful ceremony that celebrated all things Caymanian: Conch blowing, a Catboat sail by, music by local kitchen band Swanky, story telling and freshly made fish and fritters formed the backdrop for this important CMI milestone.
The 12-page booklet handed out at the Pedro St James ceremony, served as the basis for public discussion. However, it was not the document people will vote on in the Referendum in mid 2009. Persons were encouraged to attend the public meetings for discussion. The Secretariat, along with the PPM Government, hosted about 18 public meetings which were broadcasted on Radio Cayman.
