One man who won’t be running in the 2017 Cayman Islands General Elections — Fifth-Elected Member for George Town, Winston Connolly.
In a surprise announcement Monday (27 March) — on what’s believed to be the last sitting of the Legislative Assembly before it dissolves — Mr. Connolly told his fellow law makers he does not plan to run on 24 May.
“I have spoken my mind and stood for people and I will always be proud and satisfied because of that,” Mr. Connolly said. “Even when it was controversial or inconvenient. And I make no excuses for that.
“I’ve always said that I was only here for a short time and maybe that’s why I’ve always worked for my people with a view that I was only guaranteed four years. So I had to make it count.”
Mr. Connolly ran on the Coalition 4 Cayman ticket in the 2013 elections and joined Government early on before defecting.
