Alan Huckle

During his time as Governor of the Falkland Islands, Huckle had to oversee the implementation of the new Constitution in 2009. The new constitution modernised the Chapter on fundamental rights and freedoms of the individual, and embedded self-determination in the main body of the Constitution. It also created an elected Legislative Assembly, which replaced the Legislative Council. It set up an Executive Council composed of three of the elected members of the Assembly and two ex officio members, and elaborated on the role of the Governor. The new constitution also provided for finance, the public service, the administration of justice, and a Complaints Commissioner.
