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.

    Kenny’s campaign took quite a bit last night it would appear. Perhaps it’s a “sign”?

    The early birds is said to catch the most worms. voters are wandering who the have to vote for. We can only hear of Dr Frank and Kenneth Bryan. What about Postal Ballots? Will there an honest Dr to verify if some of these people are voting of their own free will ? A lot of Politicians capitalize on these Postal Ballots Mr Scott just be aware.

    Elio ha a stage set up on Walkers Road tonight. Very impressive but… Full size stage, and 200 plus seats.

    What if nobody shows up? Better to keep the chairs stacked up and hurriedly unfold them as WAY MORE than you expected show up.

    Actually, just remember he has a singer, maybe its a concert.

        Ellio helped me immensely when he was in before. He was able to get a law through that enabled Caymanians to use their pension to invest in property or pay off their mortgage.
        I chose the former, i could not be happier as I now have a piece of the planet that belongs to me.
        Don’t get me wrong. I was the first person to criticize his political stance, but that was only because he was aligned with UDP. The Underachieving Destructive Partyanimals.
        Ellio, you go! Kidding ?.

        By the way, any of you that believe that you actually have a pension?Why do you think that the law has changed to allow you only a fraction of what you have “saved”?

        The money has gone. The whole Pension thing was a Ponzi scheme from the beginning.

        You will NOT be getting your money. It was used paying for the exorbitant lifestyles of the financial community.

        The money has gone. Why do you think that the Pensions Law does not allow investment in local economic powerhouses such as gasoline, electric, water, groceries etc.

        The reason is because they want your Pension connected to the Stock Market so when it crashes, your money has gone.

        Ellio, please help your people and make sure you make no alliances with McKeeva Bush or Alden McLaughlin. They cannot be trusted.

        People of Cayman, please make sure that you get accountability from your leaders.

    Hopefully CNS you will not only be able to show where they are running, but also where they are hiding.

      Can we exclude potential voters on the basis of stupidity?

        Then you have killed democracy. Education cannot bestow righteousness on any man. Honesty comes from within, educated or not.
        All we have ever needed in Cayman from our politicians is the truth.
        Give us truth and democracy and we are responsible after that.
        Give us secret societies, fabrication and selfish gain and then we blame the liars that promised the world, delivered nothing and destroyed the middle class.

        I challenge Alden McLaughlin to list his election promises from 4 years ago and compare them to his achievements.

        Would you like me to take this more public? Just kidding. Thank you CNS for the platform.
