Premier of Cayman Islands Alden McLaughlin has been announced as the best Premier in the world
by the United Nations Economic & Social Council during their annual review which was published on July 22, 2016.
A Technical Committee made up of experts from reputable International Civil Service Organisations and
Think Tanks adjudged Mr. McLaughlin as the best Prime Minister during the period under review.
Mr. Alden has been in office since May 29, 2013 and is tipped to retain his seat in the upcoming elections
Many have criticized the credibility of the results as Cayman Islands has been drawn into a lot of
controversies since he took office and is been pressed upon by the main opposition party (UDP) to call for
early election ever since three (3) Independent Members of the Legislative Assembly resigned
from his Cabinet.
The outcome of the report which was based on the Political, Economic and Social indexes of the country
and the Premier topping being the best has been questioned by many.
“I am very honored with such a prestigious recognition. I believe this feat has been achieved through hard work
and transparency. I thank the good people of the Cayman Islands for creating the enabling environment for me
to perform my duties creditably as the Premier of our dear country”. – Alden McLaughlin said.
