CNS begins full election coverage with Election Section

| 31/01/2017 | 0 Comments

(CNS Elections): As the campaign for the May General Election gets underway in earnest, Cayman News Service has created a new website dedicated entirely to the historic election where, for the first time, voters will elect just one candidate in nineteen different constituencies. Featuring an interactive map showing which candidates are running where, the site will have all the latest election news and details of the candidates as they formally reveal their intention to run, as well as the hot button topics that emerge as the main campaign issues.

With the new political landscape, predicting results may be very difficult this time around, and given the numbers of candidates that may be on the ballot, there could be a great deal to follow. With so much information for voters to digest, the goal at CNS is to consolidate the information in as simple and easy to follow format as possible.

The CNS team will be doing its best to produce comprehensive, up-to-date coverage of the entire campaign, putting the readers, as always, centre stage on a platform that encourages comment and debate. We will be posting regular polls and offering space for readers’ Election Viewpoints, the first coming from “MM”, a regular commentary writer on our main news site. Candidates can also submit viewpoints and commentary for consideration.

With so much going on, we invite candidates and parties to send us details of upcoming campaign events to post on the Election Calendar. This is a free service, just email with your information.

After Nomination Day on 29th March, we will be asking readers to send us the questions they want to ask the candidates. The most interesting ones will be sent to all the declared candidates and we will publish all the answers we receive. There have already been some very interesting questions appearing in the comments and we’re looking forward to seeing what the CNS readers come up with.

Comments and sugggestions about the site are welcome, and if anyone has any questions about the upcoming elections, you can always Ask Auntie over on CNS Local Life.

Please send all press releases to
