(CMR) McKeeva Bush, Speaker of Parliament has finally tendered his resignation to the Clerk of Parliament, which will be effective on November 30, 2022. He sent out a recorded statement late Wednesday evening to Radio Cayman. He said that he was aware of the toll that the matter was taking on everyone around him.
The move finally makes it official and nullifies the Progressive's attempt to bring a vote of no confidence to force him out. In his statement, he shared that the resignation letter was dated Tuesday, October 3. Of course, Tuesday was actually October 4. Nonetheless, the resignation follows weeks after he promised several people that he would resign.
Earlier on Wednesday, it was revealed that Deputy Speaker Kathy Ebanks-Wilks had declined the motion. Although she did not give the Progressives a reason why some sources shared it was because the motion was out of time and not filed within the required timeframe.
He said that his record will ultimately speak for itself and stand the test of time.
In a statement from the RCIPS Wednesday evening that the Commissioner of Police confirms that the investigation file on the incident involving a senior politician on Tuesday, 13 September, is nearing completion and will be submitted to the Director of Public Prosecutions.
