Reform referendum in April?

News | Published:

ISLANDERS could be asked to vote in a referendum on plans for States reform as soon as April, according to the Electoral Commission.

On Friday the commission are due to announce their final recommendations about what changes they think should be made to the make-up of the States Assembly, the way politicians are elected and their terms of office.

Islanders are being invited to the launch of the proposals - which follow months of public consultation and research - at the Town Hall at 9.30 am.

Also at that event the commission will set out the proposed timetable for the next stages of the process, including their recommendation to hold a referendum on the plans, if they are approved by the States, on Wednesday 24 April.
