Nassau, Bahamas – Sources in the upper echelon of the Free National Movement tell us the campaign has begun and the registration process is moving steadily. However, despite the fact that all is not well in the camp of the FNM, if what we are being told is indeed true; a wicked plot to steal the next general elections in the country, is already in motion in the camp of the governing Party.
Bahamas Press reported some months ago how a woman complained of the stress she faced to register for the upcoming race. That resident of longstanding in the country revealed how she was denied the right to register following her inability to produce her 2007 voter’s card. The voter presented a current passport, however she was told that was not sufficient for her to register.
The Parliamentary Commissioner’s Office has been quiet on these incidents and appears to be moving in a fashion where it is business as usual.
Bain and Grants Town MP, Dr. B. J. Nottage, this week acknowledged that something is wrong at the Parliamentary Commissioner’s office. According to insiders we have learnt more than 3,000 persons are alleged have been given the run-a-round at the department since the registration process began last year. But that’s not all.
A disgruntled FNM general told BP, while the Commissioner is doing his own thing, a bigger plot is afoot. The general, we classify as CI Agent #1623 for the purposes of this article, has delivered a bombshell to the leading news website. According to the agent, operatives within the FNM apparatchik are working closely with a contingent within the department of immigration to regularize the status of some 4,000 plus persons before the next general elections are called, and this is just the beginning of our revelations.
“It is said by some in the Party the old tactic to bring in voters will not work well for us this time around because the likes of a Kajani Taylor proved to be a big issue in the last election court case. Those incidents of illegal voters voting exposed those efforts and therefore, we have a change in the game plan,” the agent said.
Readers would remember Taylor, a Jamaican national, was in possession of two voters card purchased out of the Parliamentary Commissioner’s office. In an affidavit the Court learned the cards were purchased for $1,000. The revelation was exposed during the Pinewood Election Court challenge. Taylor was whisked out of the country and deported back to Jamaica by the FNM government to evade trial.
Justice Anita Allen later ruled “Egregious Failures” on the part of the Parliamentary Commissioner’s office, resulted in mass voter fraud and confusion during the last elections; forcing votes in the Pinewood case to be thrown out.
Cabinet, we are told, appears to be carrying out the plot shared with us by agent #1623 as the Executive we can confirm have recently approved scores of persons seeking status in the country.
You would remember following the Mackey Yard fire on Fire Trail Road, The Prime Minister along with members of his Cabinet consoled many of the residents telling them the government will offer assistance through the department of immigration to have many of those residents regularized.
We can also confirm Cabinet sat two weeks ago and spent the entire day discussing approving immigration matters.
The granting citizenship would allow sores of voters to become regularize and deem them eligible to vote in the upcoming general elections.
Bahamas Press calls on the Department of Immigration to give an account of the number of persons having been granted citizenship in the past three years. We call on the government to confirm or deny our claims and we call on the general public to investigate this tragic plot to steal the outcome of an election from the genuine Bahamian public.
We can confirm more than 25,000 persons have registered so far for the upcoming General Elections.
