Leaked Memo from Chief Elections Officer on Referendum

With all that is taking place or about to take place in the courts; soon after the pronouncements of the Prime Minister establishing his time line for legal challenges of the interim injunction, a copy of a correspondence from Elections and Boundaries appeared on social media. The leaked memo is from the Chief Elections Officer to the staff of the department.  It urges them to continue with preparations of the April tenth referendum. It states “Based on the legal advice given, please proceed with all plans until directed otherwise. We need to be fully prepared in the event the case informs that we proceed on tenth April, 2019.” It added somewhat to the confusion to whether or not the April tenth referendum will proceed.
