Antigua And Grenada Rejects CCJ As Final Court

The referendum to move to the Caribbean Court of Justice has failed in Antigua and Barbuda as it did in Grenada on Tuesday.

Official figures. 52.04% of the voter turnout rejected the proposed move from the Privy Council and 47.96% said the nation should move to the Caribbean Court of Justice.

In Grenada’s second attempt at acceding to the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) approximately twenty two thousand people, over a quarter of the electorate, voted against making the CCJ Grenada’s final court of appeal. 
At the end of the preliminary count, 9846 voted in favour and 12,133 against.  To be successful, the bill required a two thirds majority.
