Put Freedom to the Test: And we can have full display of public consultations on electoral reforms

I like very much these exercises on public consultations for the future of St Kitts & Nevis electoral reform process.
As a starting a point in government accountability vis-à-vis its constituents, these perspectives can run a long way to position freedom and citizens’ rights to choose vis-à-vis political or socio-economic futures. These ‘rights and freedom to choose’ being fundamental to strike the right balance in attainable level of development, along with the liberty of political participation.

These dynamics highlight the necessity behind strengthened institutional settings, in order for them to be responsive to public debates and demands, as matters of rights and freedom can be instrumental for development to facilitate access to opportunities, participation in labor market arrangements and the creation of economic security.

So, let the future rolls…

Electoral Reform Consultative Committee (ERCC) member, Mr. Douglas Wattley says the Committee is hopeful that the public consultation process will be successful and is confident that stakeholders recognise the importance of participating in the meetings, which start on Monday, September 4, 2006 and end on Friday, October 13, 2006.
