Bahamas: Davis urges govt. to address voter registration concerns

NASSAU, BAHAMAS — Progressive Liberal Party (PLP) Leader Philip Brave Davis yesterday called on the government to address pressing concerns of people who have been unable to register to vote.

Davis raised the matter during an address in Parliament, indicating that he wrote a letter to both Prime Minister Dr Hubert Minnis and National Security Minister Marvin Dames last week.

He noted new voters and people seeking transfer of addresses have been having challenges with registration.

“Mr prime minister and his minister of national security, the issue of registration of new voters who are not are the register is becoming vexing,” Davis said.

The ongoing coronavirus pandemic caused delays to the start of the national voters’ registration exercise, which was originally scheduled for July 2020.

Registration has reportedly since resumed.
