Prem Alden McLaughlinFrom Onetainment

Premier of Cayman Islands Alden McLaughlin has been announced as the best Premier in the world by the United Nations Economic & Social Council during their annual review which was published on July 22, 2016.

A Technical Committee made up of experts from reputable International Civil Service Organisations and Think Tanks adjudged Mr. McLaughlin as the best Prime Minister during the period under review.

Mr. Alden has been in office since May 29, 2013 and is tipped to retain his seat in the upcoming elections in 2017.

Many have criticized the credibility of the results as Cayman Islands has been drawn into a lot of controversies since he took office and is been pressed upon by the main opposition party (UDP) to call for early election ever since three (3) Independent Members of the Legislative Assembly resigned from his Cabinet.

The outcome of the report which was based on the Political, Economic and Social indexes of the country and the Premier topping being the best has been questioned by many.

“I am very honored with such a prestigious recognition. I believe this feat has been achieved through hard work and transparency. I thank the good people of the Cayman Islands for creating the enabling environment for me to perform my duties creditably as the Premier of our dear country.” – Alden McLaughlin said.
