The public can learn more about the Constitution leading up to the Appointed Day – Friday, 6 November – during several education initiatives.
These include a four-part television series outlining the components of the new governing document. Titled The Cayman Islands Constitution: Navigating to a Brighter Future, this TV mini-series will begin on Monday, 26 October, at 6:30pm, on Cayman27 (Cable Channel 12). The initial show is called New Leadership: The Executive and The Legislature.
The second segment of the series will air Thursday evening, 29 October, at 7:30pm on Island24 (Cable Channel 9). It is entitled A New Public Service: A Higher Standard of Governance.
The third and fourth segments will air on November 2 and 5.
These TV programmes have been produced in conjunction with government officials, civic leaders and authorities on the Cayman Islands Constitution. The four shows will be accompanied by press releases which will appear in the print media.
Another initiative calls for an updated Constitution website, Constitution.gov.ky, which will launch on the Appointed Day.
District public libraries are helping out. Information – including copies of the new Constitution – is available for reference at each location.
Talk radio will also be used to familiarize the public with the contents of the new document. Two shows are planned: a morning segment on Roosterís Crosstalk on Monday, 2 November; and a noon appearance on Radio Caymanís Talk Today on Wednesday, 4 November.
Further public education and informational efforts will continue with the appointment of the new Constitutional Commission, which is expected soon after the Appointed Day.
In the meanwhile, public questions and comments on the Constitution implementation may be e-mailed to email@example.com.
