Statement On the Opposition Not Attending The Swearing In Of The New Chief Justice

There have been assertions and criticisms in various media outlets that the Opposition members of Parliament did not attend the swearing-in of the new Chief Justice of the Cayman Islands, the Hon. Margaret Ramsey-Hale. An invitation was sent to Sir Alden McLaughlin KC, the MP for Red Bay, however, it was not received by him until after the event.  No other member of the Opposition was invited to this event.  At the very least, the Leader of the Opposition, which is a Constitutionally defined position, should have been invited, as would normally be the protocol.

The Opposition members of Parliament again congratulate the new Chief Justice on her appointment to this high office and wish her every success. It should be noted that this is a momentous occasion for women in the Cayman Islands with the appointment of Justice Ramsay-Hale to the top post in the Judiciary.
