Cayman Island MP McKeeva Bush Arrested Again

Today, June 29, 2023, the Progressives announced in a press release that Cayman Island MP McKeeva Bush Arrested Again had been detained once more.

The Progressives acknowledged that Bush “denied the allegations and, like everyone, is entitled to a presumption of innocence until proven otherwise in a Court of Law,” but it seems like they are questioning why Bush (allegedly) still has support from some groups.

The Progressives claim that Bush’s most recent appointment to the Public Accounts Committee was one example of this alleged support.

The Constitution also includes limited provisions for the removal of an MP, which makes things more difficult.

There don’t seem to be any provisions in the Constitution that can make an MP resign in situations when they are facing significant accusations, for instance.

In the current situation, it is up to the relevant MPs to decide whether they will wait until the legal process is over before they publicly decide to break alleged political and other ties with the accused person or whether they will immediately distance themselves politically from the accused person and push internally to change the accused person’s involvement on government committees.

Voters may also call a referendum to bring about immediate constitutional changes, such as the power to “recall” a politician who is not doing well or who gets into terrible situations that harm the standing of the MP position or the reputation of the nation.
