Sammie Starr abandons South Beach as he cites it is impossible to win
Nassau, Bahamas — Sammie ‘Star’ Poitier, the DNA candidate for South Beach, is now a married man, but before he could finish the honeymoon, a political nuclear bomb has been set off in the DNA!
Bahamas Press has learnt the musical artist, who was a recipient of the FNM’s small business self-starter grant, has returned to the Free National Movement and has divorced the breakaway FNM [DNA].
The scandalous news confirms pressure burst pipe and that the DNA is not only hemorrhaging, but has lost support from the youth.
In an official communication to the residents of South Beach, Poitier wrote the following on his Facebook page:
Over the last few days there has been some speculation in regards to my candidacy. I, Sammie “Starr” Poitier am no longer the Democratic National Alliance’s Candidate for the South Beach Constituency, as of Wednesday November 23rd, 2011. To the great people of South Beach, I will continue to work within this community, “MY COMMUNITY”. I thank you for allowing me into your homes and into your hearts. We have already begun working together! We will continue to work on building our community centre and developing other programmes that will strengthen our community. Thank you for your love and support!
Sammie “Starr” Poitier.
So what forced Poitier to run away from the DNA? Well, we believe several things were motivated his decision. BP was about to reveal an incident going back to the Temple Christian School. That story we would leave at this time seeing that Poitier has left the political scene.
We also understand resources and financial support promised to the candidate in the DNA was not forthcoming, therefore, the issue of funding played a significant role in his decision.
Bahamas Press has also learnt that the overwhelming support collected by PLP candidate, Cleola Hamilton, has indeed left little support for the FNM and DNA to fight over. BP understands the wide support coming to Hamilton, BP’s endorsed candidate in South Beach, has resulted in a massive show of support for the unionist, who has fought for the rights of nurses and public servants across the country.
A DNA officer told Bahamas Press, “Not only are we losing support from young people, but Bahamians are fast becoming disillusioned with obvious association with the Free National Movement. We have loaded the Party with scores of angry FNMs, whom have taken key positions within the leadership of the DNA. That said, there is no way we can win. A vote for the DNA is a vote for the FNM and seeing the state of the nation today, that is a big problem for us.”
Unannounced in the media was also the resignation of DNA candidate for High Rock, Philip Thomas. The businessman was named at the DNA’s Party launch on Grand Bahama, however, to this day nothing about his resignation from the party has been reported by the WUTLESS MEDIA.
Sammie “Starr” Poitier will no longer run for the DNA. He has left the party to return back home to the FNM.
