St Kitts-Nevis boundaries change review set for April
Published on February 24, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version

By Toni Frederick

BASSETERRE, St Kitts (WINN) -- A court hearing to review constituency boundaries changes in St Kitts and Nevis will be heard in early April. At a case management meeting on Friday, instructions were given for the filing of submissions over the next few weeks, and a date for the judicial review was set for April 4.

The court at that time will review, among other claims, a challenge of the process used in preparing the boundaries change recommendations.

In the meantime an injunction obtained by opposition MPs Mark Brantley, Timothy Harris, Shawn Richards and Eugene Hamilton, which prevents the governor general from signing off on a proclamation effecting constituency boundaries changes that were passed by Parliament last September, remains in place.

The respondents in the matter are the governor general, the prime minister, the attorney general and the Constituency Boundaries Commission.

Counsel for both sides in the case have suggested that, whatever the eventual outcome, there is likely to be an appeal.
