2012-02-16 09:26:27 | (0 Comments)
The Government says it has started initial discussions regarding Jamaica’s transition to republican status.
Minister with responsibility for Information, Sandrea Falconer, made the disclosure at yesterday’s post-Cabinet press briefing.
She said the talks are being led by the Ministry of Justice and the Attorney General’s Department, spearheaded by a Ministerial Committee.
The team is expected to make recommendations to Cabinet before talks with the Opposition begin.
Meanwhile, the Ministerial Committee is also spearheading discussions for the Caribbean Court of Justice to become Jamaica’s final court of appeal.
The government has repeatedly stated its intention to cut ties with the British Monarchy.
