No vote doesn’t mean no change

The Elections Office held a press briefing Monday making clear government is bound to put in place single member constituencies if more than half the electorate, that’s 7,582 voters say yes.

The same goes for a no count, however. Government will still have to take the response as advisory if the majority of the votes counted say yes or no, but don’t reach the magic number.

The Elections Office says if either the yes or no votes reaches the magic number, government is bound to implement the result in what the constitution calls a reasonable time frame. However, no description of a reasonable time frame is given.
