Nassau, Bahamas - Dr. Minnis, Leader of the Free National Movement (FNM), issued the following statement on the Boundaries Commission Report:

“After missing numerous constitutional and self-imposed deadlines the PLP’s Boundaries Commission finally submitted their report to Government House on Monday.  The PLP has spent many months gerrymandering the constituencies to try and save their political futures.  Now it is long past time for the report to be tabled in Parliament by the Prime Minister.  Whether the PLP wants it or not, this election is around the corner and the Bahamian people will finally have a say on their future.”

“Once the Commission’s report is tabled in Parliament, the embattled Prime Minister should immediately put forth a timeline for this election.  For the Bahamian people it cannot come soon enough, they are tired of the PLP’s empty rhetoric and broken promises and have demanded the election be called now.”

“Try as they may, this PLP Government cannot stop the will of the Bahamian people.  When the bell is rung it is the people who will decide their future, and the FNM trusts the people.  When they remove the PLP from power this next election, the people will finally have their time and the new FNM Government will work every day to serve them.”
