For the first time, our Constitution includes a preamble. It is like an opening paragraph, found at the beginning of the new Constitution, which acknowledges events that have shaped our distinctive history and presents our goals and aspirations to the world. It is based on the preamble in the 2003 draft constitution, with few amendments. Not only does our preamble reflect the identity of our Caymanian people, it also recites Cayman’s unique culture, Christian heritage and the fact that our society is based on certain moral, spiritual, social and democratic values that have guided our development and brought peace, prosperity and stability to our islands.
