Premier didn’t quit UDP

In another bizarre twist to the seemingly never-ending political intrigue that has enveloped the Cayman Islands in recent weeks, it seems that Premier Juliana O’Connor-Connolly did not resign with the rest of her government colleagues from the United Democratic Party last weekend. Attempts to determine Ms O’Connor-Connolly’s official status within the UDP were unsuccessful by press time. The premier did not respond to repeated requests for comment about the matter throughout the week. UDP General Secretary Ellio Solomon said Wednesday it was his understanding that four of the five current members of the Cayman Islands “minority government” submitted resignation letters to political party district committees on Saturday. Those letters were submitted just hours prior to district committee meetings where the members had been summoned to explain their no-confidence votes in the Legislative Assembly against the UDP government led by then-Premier McKeeva Bush.
