Court Verdict Settles Issues

The Elections Petition is an example of democracy at work and the Elections Office is glad to see that the outstanding issues regarding the 2013 General Elections have now been concluded.

The judgment of the Hon. Chief Justice Smellie QC has now settled some of the previously uncertain issues concerning eligibility requirements under Cayman Law. Accordingly, the Elections Office will be guided by this historic decision in the discharge of its duties in future elections.

The public's high level of interest throughout this process speaks to the fact that democracy is alive and well in the country. In addition, the media's extensive coverage has helped to highlight the importance the Constitution has in our daily lives.
