(Cayman Compass) Governor Martyn Roper has confirmed that no international election observers will be coming to Cayman to oversee the 2021 general elections.
Instead, Roper, through a statement Tuesday, invited interested individuals to apply to serve as domestic election observers for the 14 April polls.
“On the ground election observation is important for public reassurance, including on Election Day. This is an exceptional opportunity for anyone resident in the Cayman Islands to serve the community and help to ensure that the upcoming General Election has credible results and is conducted in a free and fair manner,” Roper said in a statement shared on his official Facebook page.
He explained that the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association UK (CPA-UK) International Election Observer Mission will be unable to travel to the Cayman Islands for the general election on Wednesday, 14 April “due to COVID-19 related travel disruptions”.
