The Dominica government says the former president of the Trinidad-based Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ), Sir Dennis Byron, has been named as the sole Commissioner to a National Commission on Electoral Reform here.

Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit, addressing the ceremony where his 17-member Cabinet took their oaths of office on Tuesday night, said that the eminent Caribbean jurist had accepted the invitation to perform the role of sole Commissioner.

“The Commonwealth of Dominica is humbled to have Sir Dennis give guidance to the process of electoral reform. The terms of reference of the Commission will be announced early in the new year, at which time a secretariat will also be established to support Sir Dennis’ work,’ Prime Minister Skerrit said. (CMC)
