General elections were held in the Cayman Islands on 13 November 1984 for all 12 seats in the Legislative Assembly using a first-past-the-post system.
Political Teams & Candidates
A total of 36 candidates were presented by two political teams - Unity Team and Dignity Team - along with several independents.
The ruling Unity Team led by Jim Bodden lost all eight seats due to a scandal over Caymanian banks being used to launder drug money. The opposition Dignity Team of Benson Ebanks won three seats in the Legislative Assembly, but the majority (nine) were won by independents.
Voter turnout was 77.96%.
Ebanks subsequently became Chief Minister after forming a coalition.
