Mottley: Republic Transitional Team Will Be Appointed

(Barbados Today) A transitional team will be appointed to make recommendations of the selection of a President and to handle all other matters relating to the country becoming a Republic state, Prime Minister Mia Mottley has said.

Prime Minister Mottley said that the Government will use suggestions from the team as well as recommendations from the previous Constitutional Review Commission which was led by Sir Henry Forde.

Mottley, who was speaking to ABC Australia’s chief foreign correspondent Philip Williams during a broadcast interview, said: “We have to go through a whole transition team and settle on the arrangement. Fortunately, a lot of that work was done many years ago and the Constitutional Review Commission had submitted to the then Government proposals for how the President should be elected. We are going to dust that off.”

She added: “In the context of the transition team that will be appointed we will take recommendations as to how best we go, whether we accept those recommendations from Sir Henry Forde when we had the Constitutional Review Commission in the 1990s or whether we modify it.”
