Sections 108 & 109
Public Officers to Act in Islands' Best Interests
All public officers are required to act in Cayman’s best interests, and to implement government policy as directed by Cabinet.
Independence and Political Neutrality of Public Officers
The Constitution preserves the Governor’s responsibility for employment decisions, including hiring, firing, transfers, and discipline of public officers to prevent political interference in the public service.
It also gives constitutional backing for the Public Service Management Law (PSML) that governs the administration of public officers. Accordingly no law may transfer, reduce, or delegate the Governor’s responsibility for the following offices:
- Financial Secretary;
- Commissioner of Police;
- Auditor General;
- Information Commissioner;
- Complaints Commissioner
