KINGSTON, Jamaica (AP) - Lawmakers in the Cayman Islands plan to meet in a special session that might oust the embattled premier.

Education Minister Rolston Anglin says that 11 ruling party and opposition legislators have called on the Legislative Assembly speaker to summon a meeting Tuesday to debate a no confidence motion against Premier McKeeva Bush.

The lawmakers driving the no-confidence debate include Deputy Premier Juliana O'Connor-Connolly, who is expected to take power if Bush is forced out.

Bush was arrested last week on suspicion of corruption and was questioned for two days. He received bail until February and has rejected calls to resign, saying the police investigation is politically motivated.

Police are looking into allegations that Bush misused his government credit card and abused his office by importing explosive devices without valid permits.
