Voters saying ‘Yes’ to OMOV

| 19/07/2012

(CNS): Although the count still has a long way to go, early results from the election command centre indicate that those who bothered to go to the polls are voting 'yes' to one man, one vote. In North Side 335 people have voted 'yes'  with only 56 people bothering to vote 'no', and even in the Sister Islands, where voter apathy was the most apparent, the final count there indicated 256 people voted 'yes' against 206 voting 'no'. Meanwhile, at the half way point of the count, in East End, so far the vote is heavily in favour of one man, one vote. Keep checking CNS for the latest live results.

I suspect that this would apply to any Referendum vote, whatever the subject. In effect, the use of a referendum in Cayman to achieve any goal is a complete waste of time. To the extent that the PPM supported theOMOV referendum, and the YES vote fails to hit the target, they have only themselves to blame for agreeing the “majority” formula incorporated into the new Constitution,
