PLP congratulates Bahamian Opposition
The Progressive Labour Party has congratulated the Bahamian Opposition on a “landslide” victory.
The Free National Movement scored a sweeping win over the ruling Progressive Liberal Party in last week's election.
“The winds of change are blowing across the Caribbean,” the PLP stated. “In December, in the Turks & Caicos Islands, the Opposition People's Democratic Movement won a convincing victory and Premier Rufus Ewing lost his seat.
“And, just last week in the Bahamas, the Opposition Free National Movement won a landslide victory with Prime Minister Perry Christie losing a seat which he held for nearly 40 years. The PLP conveys congratulations to the FNM for their stunning victory.”
The statement added that in both elections, governing parties “were vexed with struggling economies and immigration concerns”.
“Here in Bermuda, we see those same issues mirrored as the divide between the wealthy and the working class grows considerably under an OBA government.”
