NASSAU, BAHAMAS — The government should fairly consider its restrictions on certain public events, given that political parties are allowed to canvas communities, suggested Bahamas Christian Council (BCC) President Bishop Delton Fernander.
With the upcoming elections quickly approaching, supporters and candidates of major political parties have been hitting the pavement, campaigning in various communities in large numbers.
Despite recent criticism and concerns on its impact on rising coronavirus cases, Prime Minister Dr Hubert Minnis has defended the actions, indicating that political parties have been following COVID-19 protocols.
However, Fernander has hit out at those assertions, insisting that the government is “setting a precedent”.
“We must realize what is good for the goose is also good for the gander,” he told reporters in a recent interview.
