Lawmakers will take their seats in the la next Monday morning (25 April), debating two motions concerning police leadership and the response in the ‘missing five’ case.
Opposition Leader McKeeva Bush told Cayman 27 he expects debate on those to go well into the night. The two motions from the special session must be disposed of before the regular session can resume. Right now, that’s scheduled for Wednesday, 27 April.
Government will be tabling 14 bills ranging from tax information and anti-corruption matters to Sunday trading.
But will both sides be able to work together after the bitter face-off two weeks ago? Independent MLA Winston Connolly told Cayman 27 he hopes so.
“The business of the country has to go on, and what I think we can do collectively is roll up our sleeves and get down to the business,” said Mr. Connolly. “We’ve already had a delay. This is the longest period in recent memory with the house not sitting. The last sitting was in November, so we are behind the 8-ball.”
Mr. Connolly and other opposition and independent members will be bringing motions of their own to the regular session. Cayman 27 will continue to follow all the developments closely.
