Bahamas: RECKLESS: House speaker condemns political campaigning; says it exposes residents

NASSAU, BAHAMAS — While Prime Minister Dr Hubert Minnis once again sought to defend political organizations such as the Free National Movement (FNM) campaigning in various communities in large numbers, Speaker of the House of Assembly and Nassau Village MP Halson Moultrie called the political campaigning “reckless” and said it endangers constituents and campaign workers.

Yesterday, during the handing over ceremony of 33,600 Oxford AstraZeneca vaccines, the prime minister urged the public to adhere to health protocols over the Easter holiday weekend and reminded that groups must be limited to five people on beaches and parks on New Providence and Grand Bahama.

It was pointed out to the prime minister that groups well over a dozen people have been observed in various constituencies in recent weeks, including the FNM, which campaigned in Garden Hills over the weekend in full regalia.

But the prime minister insisted that all individuals in the group wore facials masks and followed other health measures.
