FNM MP Uncertain Of Future

Free National Movement Member of Parliament for North Eleuthera Theo Neilly recently told The Journal was that he’s still pondering whether to remain or sever ties with the FNM.

“I personally haven’t decided whether I’m staying or leaving, I have to go about it the right way and meet with my association and my family,” he said.

“I should know within the next few days or maybe a week.”

Last week, Central Grand Bahama MP Neko Grant made his plans known, as he resigned as leader of opposition business in the House of Assembly and shadow minister of works.

It has been reported that Fort Charlotte MP Dr. Andre Rollins will run as an independent in the next election, but no decision has come from St. Anne’s MP Hubert Chipman.

Loretta Butler-Turner, who has challenged Dr. Minnis in the FNM’s recent convention, has confirmed that she will accept the FNM’s nomination for Long Island.

Butler-Turner over the last week has spoken out against Dr. Minnis calling him “corrupt”.

Neilly, who has long been a supporter of Butler- Turner, said he has no direct insight on her political future.

“I’m still certainly a big fan of Loretta Butler-Turner. I don’t know what she plans to do, I can’t speak for her and I won’t dare try to,” Mr. Neilly said.

“She’ll make her decision when it’s time.

“Every political party has their concerns and challenges, ours just happens to be very public.

“It is nothing that we can’t salvage,” Mr. Neilly said.

Many have speculated that Grant’s resignation hints at the possibility of Butler-Turner assuming his post as a means to close the rift within the party.
