The 2017 general election has brought out more independent candidates and more female candidates than its predecessor in 2013, according to figures reviewed by the Cayman Compass.
A record 63 candidates will contest the Cayman Islands general election on May 24 after a frantic day of nominations across the country generated some surprises.
Well more than 100 people turned out for last week’s candidacy announcement by former George Town MLA Ellio Solomon, and at least 10 of them were hopeful candidates for the May general election seeking to determine which direction the political winds were blowing.
