King Charles III: Island Nation To Conduct A Referendum To Remove The King

King Charles III: The Caribbean country’s prime minister informed British media on Saturday that Antigua and Barbuda intends to conduct a referendum on becoming a republic within the next three years. If successful, this step might result in King Charles III losing his position as monarch. Shortly after a local ceremony recognised Charles III as the nation’s King in the wake of Queen Elizabeth II’s passing, Prime Minister Gaston Browne told ITV News, “This is a matter that has to go to a referendum…within the next, probably three years.” One of 14 Commonwealth nations who share the UK monarch as their head of state is the tiny Caribbean island republic, which broke away from Britain in 1981.

This step might result in King Charles III losing his position as monarch.

Brown stressed that a referendum was “not an act of hostility” and would not result in Commonwealth membership being revoked, but described becoming a republic as “the final step to complete the circle ofindependence to ensure we are truly a sovereign nation.” Also Read: Viral Video: In yet another incident, security guard Assaulted By a Woman inNoida, watch video
