The Cabinet invited the Supervisor of Elections to join its members in order to bid her farewell, as she prepares to demit office. The office of Supervisor of Elections is a creature of the Antigua and Barbuda Constitution; and, the Parliament was required to set the age of mandatory retirement which is at 75 years. The Dame has not yet reached that age, but has spent more than 50 years in the service of the Government and prefers to enjoy her retirement while she enjoys good health. She was accompanied by Ian Hughes, the Deputy, and John Jarvis, the Chairman of the Electoral Commission. There has been a proposal to marry the Electoral Commission and the Supervisor’s role, when constitutional reform is being considered. There is some support for this proposal, the Cabinet agreed. No decision was made.
