The Editor Speaks: Voters know where they stand and whom they stand with from two candidates

Colin WilsonwebFurther to a previous Editorial where I bemoaned the Coalition for Cayman (C4C) “independent” candidates would not openly say whom they would align themselves with if there were a split vote in Cayman’s General Election, the two independents in North Side and East End have made it very clear.

In a news story on CNS (http://www.caymannewsservice.com/2013/05/08/eastern-allies-won%E2%80%99t-help-udp)

Ezzard Miller, MLA for North Side, and Arden McLean, MLA for East End both said neither would work with a United Democratic Party or even support a coalition Cabinet with any members who ran on the UDP platform in this election.

Miller also said ‘if the UDP managed to squeeze into government as a result of the split vote in George Town, he believed the UK could impose direct rule and confirmed that he would not support a single UDP candidate to be part of any government’.

McLean added ‘they were both going head to head with candidates who may profess to be independent but who were both supported directly by the UDP’.

Both men said they would work with anyone else and mentioned the Progressives (PPM) as the party they would prefer if they had to make a choice.

I applaud both men. They have made it abundantly clear and we all know where they stand and whom they would stand with.

If only ALL the other independents would be so forthcoming. If they were they might have a much better chance of being elected.
