GRENADA'S REFERENDUM ON CONSTITUTIONAL REFORM

Of the 71,241 registered voters, a mere 32.4% or just over 21,000 persons voted. The outcome was an overwhelming rejection of all seven bills.

The four bills most heavily rejected were the Rights and Freedoms Bill ("No" 76%, "Yes" 24%); Term of Office of Prime Minister ("No" 74%, "Yes" 26%); Ensuring the Appointment of Leader of the Opposition ("No" 72%, "Yes" 28%); and Fixed Date for Elections ("No" 67%, "Yes" 33%).
