Standards Commission still waiting for law to kick in

It’s five years and counting since Cayman’s Standards in Public Life legislation was passed in the LA.

However, to date, there’s no word on when it’s going to commence or when its accompanying regulations will be drafted.
On Friday (16 November) Deputy Governor Hon. Franz Manderson tabled the Commission’s 14th report in the Legislative Assembly.
In its report the Commission said back in January they met with the Premier on securing a commencement date and Cabinet approval to draft their regulations.

Since then no movement was shared on either element, but the Commission is not giving up.

“Over the next reporting period, the commission intends to continue to liaise with the Office of the Premier to secure a commencement of the law, amendment law, as well as, the accompanying regulations,” Mr. Manderson said as he read the report.
The Commission said it is also still waiting for a response to its recommendations on creating a code of conduct for ministers.
