Attorney: Amended port vote question more neutral

Government’s amended port referendum question is a welcome change for the team behind the legal action challenging the vote on the $200 million project.

However, attorney Kate McClymont said the new wording still does not address the issue of separation of cruise berthing from cargo port.

“The new wording of the question is more neutral than it was before, which is one of the things sought by our client in the judicial review challenge. Critically, though, the new wording still conflates two discrete issues, being the cargo port and the cruise berthing port,” she said in a statement to the Cayman Compass over the weekend.
