NASSAU, BAHAMAS — As political parties continue efforts to jumpstart their political campaigns for the next general election, the Free National Movement (FNM) is close to wrapping up its full slate of ratified candidates.
According to FNM Chairman Carl Culmer, the FNM will name its remaining six candidates, including the seats held by the prime minister and deputy prime minister, in short order, though he did not provide an exact date.
The remaining seats include Englerston, Pineridge, Fox Hill and Seabreeze.
Prime Minister Dr Hubert Minnis and Deputy Prime Minister Desmond Bannister, the incumbents for Killarney and Carmichael respectively, are expected to be renominated for those constituencies.
Culmer told Eyewitness News: “The vetting committee is doing its final checks, so once they report, then we will take it to the executive committee and we will go from there.
