Minnis: FNM Will Be Unified

With the ongoing infighting and calls for the return of former Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham , leader of the Free National Movement Dr. Hubert Minnis reiterated the need for unification within the party.

Minnis spoke with reporters outside the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association Convention at the Atlantis Resort and said the party’s ultimate goal is singular.

“As a leader my responsibility is doing what is necessary to unify the party and get the PLP out and that’s what I would do.

“That party will be unified because the party has one focus and that is to rescue The Bahamas and remove The PLP.

“The Bahamian people have suffered long enough, four years going on five, how much longer will the Bahamian people continue to suffer,” Dr. Minnis said.

When prompted to respond to questions concerning the possible return of Mr. Ingraham Dr Minnis urged reporters to ask him.

Minnis also refused to answer questions in regards to the fate of the “Dissident 6” if he is successful in retaining his position at this week’s convention.

The 6 MPs consist of Long Island MP Loretta Butler-Turner, Fort Charlotte MP Dr. Andre Rollins, Central Grand Bahama MP Neko Grant, St. Anne’s MP Hubert Chipman, Montagu MP Richard Lightbourn and North Eleuthera MP Theo Neilly.

A team led by Butler Turner and recently sworn in FNM Senator Duane Sands is expected to challenge Minnis and Turnquest for the leadership positions at this year’s convention.
