Opening of the 2018-2019 Parliamentary Year Postponed

The Opening of the 2018-2019 Parliamentary Year has been postponed to next month.

In a press release issued on Monday, Legislative Department said the formal ceremony was originally scheduled for September 25, but is now rescheduled for Tuesday October 16.

The change is due to a request made by the Honourable Premier Donaldson Romeo.

Speaker of the Legislative Assembly Shirley Osborne is reiterating her standing invitation to residents to attend sittings of the Montserrat Legislative Assembly and experience the business of their Legislative Branch in person.

Speaker Osborne further invites residents and citizens to feel free to contact her Office with any related concerns, ideas or suggestions.

She is also reminding persons that the increased engagement and participation of the citizens is critical to the processes of governing Montserrat, to democracy and transparency, and for the right development of the island and its people.
