BASSETERRE, St Kitts (WINN) -- Attorney General Jason Hamilton has addressed the issue of the high court’s ruling on constituency boundary changes in St Kitts and Nevis and served notice that the work of the Constituency Boundary Commission will continue.

Speaking in parliament on Monday, the attorney general recounted the court’s findings.

Hamilton said the inequities that exist under the present constituency boundaries would be corrected as soon as the commission completes its work.

But Senator Vincent Byron expressed surprise at the statement that the Boundaries Commission was reviewing the high court’s recent pronouncement.

The high court ruled that the constituency boundaries did not meet appropriate standards for the consultancy it started.

The opposition has argued that the government has dodged a motion of no confidence that has the support of the majority of elected, for more than 20 months and as such should not be allowed to change boundaries to its advantage.
