Questions on Bougainville Referendum defered to July meet

The Joint Supervisory Body meeting held this afternoon agreed to defer the Questions to be put on the Referendum vote next year to its end of July meeting in Port Moresby.
According to the resolution by today’s JSB meeting is that after receipt of joint legal advice on issues of constitutional compliance of different options for the question or questions to be put in the referendum a special JSB has been called before the end of July to consider what question or questions should be put including the use of symbols.
The meeting also resolved that once the question has been endorsed by the JSB the BRC will be tasked with undertaking testing and outreach work to ensure that the question is clearly understood, and that all eligible voters understand what each option means, including potential implications arising from either option.
This will also include development of a ballot design and appropriate wording in Tok Pisin.
