Posted: Updated:

Guam - A future plebiscite is closer to being finalized as procedures and timelines have been proposed with the Commission on Decolonization's preliminary educational plan. Member-at-large Lisa Natividad tells KUAM News the proposed educational plan created by a five-member subcommittee was submitted to the Guam Legislature today as mandated by law and briefly outlines recommendations, methods for implementation, concerns and reviews.

"Then it goes on to talk about the different mechanisms to be able to get the word out like public forums, debates, the use of media of course and part in parcel to that of course which is unique to this time around in addressing the issue of self-determination as compared to the past is the use and integration of social media," she said.

She adds the recent class action lawsuit against the Guam Election Commission alleging racial discrimination hasn't hindered the Commission's work, but raised the idea of possibly hiring legal counsel. The proposed plebiscite date for the 2014 gubernatorial election will be discussed and voted upon at their next meeting in December.
