Consultative Poll On Governance Reform – Public Information Sessions

Members of Legislative Council have agreed that a Consultative Poll on Governance Reform will be held on St Helena on Wednesday, 17 March 2021.

The Poll will ask the public if the current Governance System should be changed, and if so, whether it should be changed to a Revised Committee System or a Ministerial System.

To give more information on the current and two proposed systems of governance, as well as to discuss voting arrangements and the Poll, Public Information Sessions have been scheduled for the week commencing Monday, 22 February 2021, as follows:
