Constitution Week puts spotlight on document

Residents of the Cayman Islands are
invited to get up close and personal with members of the Constitutional
Commission and others.

Constitution Day is Monday and
while it is a traditionally quiet holiday, the Constitutional Secretariat wants
to highlight the document that was formally introduced in November.

Under the theme Working Our
Constitution, residents will get a chance to gain a better understanding of the
document as well as insights into the work of the commissions.

Residents are encouraged to attend
the scheduled events. These will include a Meet the Commissioners Open House on
Wednesday, 7 July, from 4.30 to 6pm at the Constitutional Secretariat on Smith
Road. A special public presentation is scheduled for Cayman Brac the following
day.

Commissioners and Constitutional
Secretariat representatives will also be available at libraries throughout
Grand Cayman on Saturday, 10 July, from 10 to 11am. A church service takes
place at Agape Family Worship Centre on Sunday, 11 July.

Members of the public are
encouraged to come out, ask questions and learn how the Constitution affects
them.
