Prime Minister Bruce Golding has congratulated the leader of the United Democratic Party (UDP) McKeeva Bush, on his party’s victory in Wednesday’s national elections in the Cayman Islands.
Four years after losing to the People’s Progressive Movement (PPM), the UDP was returned to office, capturing 9 of the 15 seats in the Legislative Assembly.
In his message to Mr. Bush, Mr. Golding said the victory was a clear and convincing statement of support from the people of the Cayman Islands. He said his government looked forward to continued good relations between the Cayman Islands and Jamaica.
Mr. Golding recalled that the Cayman Island’s new leader had always been very supportive of him and had attended his swearing-in as Prime Minister of Jamaica in September 2007.
Mr. Bush who announced Cabinet appointments today, will be heading his new government’s team as leader of Government business and will assume responsibility for finance, tourism, and development.
