Nassau, Bahamas - Sidney Collie, Free National Movement (FNM) Chairman, issued the following statement regarding stolen campaign signs:

“It has come to my knowledge that both the FNM and the PLP have had their campaign signs defaced or vandalized in recent days. Dozens of FNM signs were placed along West Bay Avenue late last week. As of today, the vast majority of those signs have not only been removed, but replaced with a PLP candidate’s signs. Having heard a similar call for deference by Bradley Roberts, I have no doubt that the PLP has unfortunately had many of their signs vandalized as well.”

“Out of reverence to free speech, fair elections and most importantly respect for each other, I call upon the supporters and leaders of all parties to end these discourteous and immature tactics. Stealing or harming another’s property, whether during an election or not, accomplishes nothing and only brings shame upon the perpetrator.”

“I ask all party leaders, campaign organizers and party volunteers to do their due diligence in echoing this call for mutual respect. Bahamians deserve a government that acts nobly, responsibly and democratically and this must begin with each of us leading by example.”
