Premier won’t be at ‘one man’ debate

Contrary to earlier announcements, Cayman Islands Premier McKeeva Bush will not be attending the Generation Now debate set for Thursday evening which will review the ‘one man, one vote’ issue.

The debate is scheduled to begin around 7pm Thursday at the Harquail Theater.

Mr. Bush was initially set to attend the debate with Opposition Leader Alden McLaughlin, North Side MLA Ezzard Miller, Electoral Boundary Commission member Adrianne Webb and Richard Arch, described on the Generation Now flyer announcing the event as a “concerned citizen”.

West Bay MLA Cline Glidden, Jr. will be attending Thursday’s event in Mr. Bush’s place, the Premier’s office confirmed late Tuesday.
