The Jamaican government wants to become a republic in 2024. Jamaica’s Minister of Legal and Constitutional Affairs Marilyn Malahu Forte said in an interview with Sky News.
“It’s time to say goodbye,” says the minister. Jamaica has been independent since 1962, but it remains a member of the Commonwealth and King Charles is the head of state.
Malahoo Forte says that the Jamaicans have no sympathy for Charles. According to her, they had warm feelings for the late Queen Elizabeth. When Jamaica became independent, Queen Elizabeth was already on the throne.
Jamaica has been considering leaving the Commonwealth for some time, but Malahu Forte has now said it plans to introduce a bill this month that would begin the process of becoming a republic. An adoption can take up to nine months. If the law is passed, a referendum will be held in 2024.
In November 2021, Barbados is preceded by Jamaica, which later became a republic. The Commonwealth is a partnership between the United Kingdom and countries that were formerly British colonies. There are now 54 member countries, including India, Pakistan, Nigeria, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
