PR decision could come after election

Ex-pats seeking the right to reside in Cayman for the rest of their lives won’t get an answer any time soon.

Premier Hon. Alden McLaughlin says those awaiting a decision on their permanent residency applications, a number reaching 1,000, may have to wait till after the May 2017 election for an answer.

Appearing on this week’s episode of “The Panel,” Mr. McLaughlin says he accepts the current system has failed.  More that 900 people are in limbo as no permanent residency application has been approved since the law change of October 2013. The premier says he understands the urgency of the situation and if they can get the legislation done in time, his team may call a special meeting of the LA ahead of the General Elections.
