Jamaica To Remove Queen Has Head Of State

The Jamaican government is planning to removed the Queen of Head of State and moved towards a ‘non-executive President’ according to Governor-General Patrick Allen. 

This isn't the first time the Jamaican government has mention removing the Queen. In 2012, former prime minister Portia Simpson-Million made a announcement that she would but it never happens. 
The Queen, became the Head of State after Jamaica gained independence from Britain in 1962. She hasn't visited the country since 2002. If the Queen is removed, Jamaica will retain links with the British Crown through its membership of the Commonwealth. 
She's also the Head of State in 15 Commonwealth countries, including Barbados who plans to removed the Queen as Head of State later this year.
