Fixed Election Dates and the Delay of Local Government Election

Mixed reaction to the government’s decision to postpone yet again the local government elections, which were due in February of this year. It has resuscitated the conversation around fixed election dates, but are local government elections important and necessary? What is the value of our local government system?

We only have questions tonight on our Panel Discussion and we are joined by Dr. Canute Thompson, Professor of Educational Policy, Planning, and Leadership, he is also the co-founder and chief consultant at the Caribbean leadership re-imagination initiative, and Donna Parchment former Political Ombudsman.
