And Alaska Hall was decked in green yesterday as a raft of pledges were made by the Progressive Labour Party leadership.

One couldn't help noticing the striking technological ambience that filled the room; video cameras, flat-screen TVs and the stage-lighting on candidates that spoke.

All 36 PLP candidates in the General Election turned out to officially hear the party's vision to "Move Bermuda Forward" over the next five years – election permitting.


And Alaska Hall was decked in green yesterday as a raft of pledges were made by the Progressive Labour Party leadership.

One couldn't help noticing the striking technological ambience that filled the room; video cameras, flat-screen TVs and the stage-lighting on candidates that spoke.

All 36 PLP candidates in the General Election turned out to officially hear the party's vision to "Move Bermuda Forward" over the next five years – election permitting.

The platform speeches given by six candidates, including Premier Ewart Brown, could also be heard throughout Court Street on loud speakers.

Indicative of the PLP's trademark green colours, a cantaloupe with the letters 'PLP' carved in it could be seen among the food and refreshments available at the back of the room, but it remained conspicuously untouched.

"How sweet it is!" Dr. Brown opened his address, his choice of words alone was enough to tell that every politician in the room was in a good mood.

As proof to the tech-savvy nature of the event, during the Premier's speech, he paused for a video clip to be played on the TV screens which featured a senior, Eugene Phillips, 85, voicing concerns about affordable healthcare – Dr. Brown responded to his concerns following the clip.
