    Falklands votes on Thursday on a single electoral constituency referendum

    The Single Constituency Bill would amend Falklands' Constitution to replace two constituencies with one and voters would elect all eight Members of the Assembly.

    Next Thursday, 24 September, Falklanders will be going to the polls to vote on a referendum on a Single electoral Constituency for the whole archipelago. Currently, there are two constituencies in the Falklands, Stanley the capital, which elects five of the eight members of the Legislative Assembly, and the so-called Camp, which represents the rest of the territory and sends three representatives.
