CPA Virtual Post-Election Seminar: The Parliament of the Cayman Islands
Dates: 4 - 6 August 2021
At the request of the Parliament of the Cayman Islands, the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA) Headquarters Secretariat is organising a virtual Post-Election Seminar for new and returning Members from 4 - 6 August 2021.
The fifth general election of the Cayman Islands took place on 14 April 2021. It was called early at a time when there was a pending motion of no confidence in the Speaker of the House. The polls were conducted in the midst of the global COVID-19 pandemic.
A total of 19 Members were elected - 14 men and 5 women - and 73.1 % of registered voters cast their ballot. Read the Election Report produced by CPA British Islands and Mediterranean Region (CPA BIMR) to find out more about the 2021 Cayman Islands General election.
About CPA Post-Election Seminars
For over 25 years the CPA have conducted Post-Election Seminars for parliaments at a national or sub-national level. This long-standing programme introduces newly elected parliamentarians to differing legislative systems and methods of working. The Seminars usually take place a few months after a general election, in either a physical on virtual format, and are delivered by senior, highly experienced current and former parliamentarians and parliamentary officials from throughout the Commonwealth.
The objectives are two-fold:
- To disseminate information on diverse good practices in Commonwealth parliaments as a way of providing options to parliamentarians;
- Promote an understanding of the way parliamentary procedures and practices can embed good governance into a system.
Topics covered by the programme include dealing with the media, working in the constituency, and effective scrutiny in committees.
This seminar is an invitation-only event for Members of the Parliament of the Cayman Islands. Registration is not available to the public or to other CPA Members. If you are a participant in this event and require further information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
