The few left standing with the FNM Government is causing an FNM MP in Grand Bahama to consider the Fort Charlotte seat.
Freeport, Grand Bahama — Low voter registration and a serious backlash from Grand Bahamians for the poor economic state of the island could force a third Grand Bahama government MP to vacate his constituency for a seat in New Providence.

Bahamas Press has learnt generals in the MP’s constituency are still concerned for the MP’s political survival at the polls; even after seats on the island have been reconfigured. Reports by the FNM Association in the constituency suggests it is still an uphill battle for the MP.

Sources close to the Governing Free National Movement Party tell us, “We are making many adjustments as the Party organizes for the general elections. We are at present testing candidates and will be placing a number of new faces on the ticket for the FNM. Make no mistake about it, though the exercise my concern some, when the Party is ready to roll out its machinery, Bahamians will have a real option to select from the best team to guide the country into the future.”

BP has learnt Carmichael MP, Desmond Bannister, is set to contest the seat of North Andros, while current MP for South Beach, Phenton Neymour, his headed to Exuma.

Reports inside the FNM confirms a backdoor deal in the South Abaco seat will retire current MP, Edison Key, who will be replaced with a DNA candidate in the area.

We report YINNER DECIDE!

  1. Listen BP, whoever is hiding behind the HTML of your web site must stop this Bullcrap Press! There is one deranged idiot that exist in the mind(s) of whomever is behind your backwoods mentality. Give us a break and report real news that “yinner” want to read!

  2. So, if according to Mr. Thompson, the PLP and the FNM are the same, and the DNA and the FNM (as most of us know) are the same party, are we now a one-party country???? ROTFLMBAO!!!!!! Give the people more credit sir and you are, of course, free to do whatever you want, as are the voters!

  3. Do u mean Zhivargo Laing? If so I find this story very hard to believe.Why leave GB to run in PLP country? If u had said that he would be moving to either Central or East GB I would have believed you.

  4. Roscoe Thompson, whether you stay an FNM #2 candidate or go back to being an FNM #1 it makes no difference with us PLPs because we know all of you FNMs are gone. Where I take issue with you is when you said that the FNM and the PLP are one and the same. Are you telling me, and the rest of the Bahamas, that all the while you were supporting FNM #1 you regarded both parties one and the same? Then why were you saying that your FNM#1 was good for the people then and not the PLP? This shows just how stupid a statement this was that you made; we (the PLP)are not the same as the FNM; never was; never will be. We are for the little people,; the FNM #1 & #2 are not. Both the DNA and the FNM are one and the same and our candidate (Gary Sawyer) will skin all your behinds, this time. While #1 & #2 FNMs fight over FNM#1’s votes, Gary Sawyer will be sailing home to victory. You are taking FNM’s #1 votes; not PLPs Mr Thompson.

  6. BP, you got to stop your lying. I am not in Talks with the FNM. I am running for the DNA in the upcoming election. my supporters are behind me 100%. South Abaco has gone Green, so get over it. The FNM and PLP are one in the same and furthermore y’all running the same candidate from last election. Same ole same ole…..

    • We asked you to tell us, WHO MADE THE CALL TO YOU A FEW WEEKS AGO OUT OF THE FNM? We notice you are avoiding the question. The faster you can answer that, the quicker this concern by the residents of South Abaco will go away.

  10. Say it’s NOT so!! I cannot believe that Thompson would abandon his many DNA supporters in South Abaco, and return to the FNM for the second/third time. So serious promises must have been made to him to turn his head. How will he square this with his current supporters. Will they follow him back to the FNM – I doubt it!! Will they sit this one out? Either way, it makes the South Abaco seat very interesting. I do feel, however that the PLP candidate will take the South Abaco seat this time.
