Nassau, Bahamas - Sidney Collie, Free National Movement (FNM) chairman, issued the
following statement thanking volunteers, constituents and poll workers:
“It is indeed the peoples’ time. Bahamians have spoken, and together we
will turn the page on these past years of corruption and mismanagement,
to a better Bahamas where hope and opportunity replace the despair that
has gripped our communities for far too long.
“The FNM’s historic victory would not have been possible without the
hard work and dedication of so many Bahamians who sacrificed their time
and effort to a cause they believed in. I thank every volunteer for
their strong commitment throughout this election, and every poll worker
who helped yesterday’s election to run smoothly. Most importantly, I
want to thank every Bahamian that exercised their right to vote in
yesterday’s election, standing up for democracy and doing their part to
begin rebuilding The Bahamas. Above all I want to give thanks and
praise to almighty GOD for guidance and his sustaining power over the
entire country during This election cycle.
“Change begins now. The FNM’s effort to restore the nation’s economy,
our work to fix the struggling education system and our focus on raising
up our inner-cities begins today! I want everyone to know that today,
and going forward, the FNM will never lose sight of its priority to
represent all Bahamians and will always maintain an emphasis on
transparency and accountability”.
