The Constitutional Talks between the Cayman delegates and UK’s Foreign Commonwealth Office (FCO) were held over a period of approximately 5 months starting from 29 September – 5 February 2009. During the negotiation meetings, the Cayman delegates presented their opening and closing statements while discussing the various items highlighted in their Position Papers. Feedback received from individuals and various organizations were also considered during this time.
As a result of these meetings, a final draft Constitution was published and efforts were made to conduct public education on the various aspects of the Constitution from a lay personís perspective. Upon completion, the public was asked to vote on the final draft Constitution during the Referendum in May 2009.
