Nassau, Bahamas — “There will be no retreat…there will be NO SURRENDER!” Those were the words given at PLP at a rally in Elizabeth this week by PLP leader, Perry Christie. In less than 24-hours after Malcolm Adderley‘s resignation from the House of Assembly, Bahamas Press has learned Christie quickly sprung into action and has already rolled the PLP into a bloodthirsty fighting political machine.
Bahamas Press now projects the PLP will return a candidate to the Elizabeth seat in Parliament. We are now getting word Ryan Pinder will indeed receive the nod as standard–bearer for the PLP. The announcement will come early this week. Bahamas Press will ENDORSE Pinder, who is the son of former PLP Cabinet Minister and MP for Malcolm Creek, Marvin Pinder.
Christie, we are told by a Party insider, has unleashed a full–scale assault on the Ingraham FNM machine, and was the first to hold a rally in the big by-election dance. Insiders tell us, Philip ‘Brave’ Davis, Bradley Roberts, Obie Wilchcombe and Dr. Bernard Nottage have all locked hands surrounding the PLP leader in the March to re-claim Elizabeth. We are also told the men have all commenced a serious ground campaign assault, which include delegations of PLP foot soldiers flown into the capital out of Grand Bahama, Eleuthera, Cat Island, Rum Cay and San Salvador.
“By the direction of Christie, we will leave no stone unturned in Elizabeth. Every living person in that constituency will be talking to our leadership team, and they will be assured of our commitment to them as we are set to reclaim the government whenever the General Elections are called,” a PLP NGC member told BP.
Bahamas Press can confirm Christie along with PLP Deputy Leader, Philip ‘Brave’ Davis, were in the area in the rain yesterday walking-a-bout Elizabeth along with MPs and Senators. A PLP supporter also told BP, “We are committed to crowning Christie ‘King of Politics’ after this fire dance. This will be the undoing of Ingraham, his waterloo. Mr. Davis you should also know has assembled more than 40 lawyers – 3 for each polling division – to examine every voting ballot cast in the by-election.
“Davis has gone out of his way to carry out the wishes of his longtime law partner, flying and bussing in ground workers to flood the ground in the constituency. With Christie now being protected and fully supported by Philip ‘Brave’ Davis, Bradley Roberts, Obie Wilchcombe and Dr. Bernard Nottage, there is no better machine assembled on the ground.”
FNMs we are told have become shell shock following the PLP’s response to a by-election and to this day have yet to announce Dr. Dawne Sands as the candidate. In a meeting on Tuesday of last week hosted by Carl Bethel, we understand the residents of Elizabeth have rejected Ingraham nod for Sands. We are told the move by the FNM members has stalled the rollout of the FNM machine and has caused the PLP to gain the head start in the race.
A FNM resident living in the area told BP, “Sands is needed in the medical field not politics. Why Ingraham wants to push him down our throats?”
The situation we are told has further pushed FNMs into panic and is snowballing into a ball of chaos. Hubert Ingraham and Aaron ‘Kiki’ Knowles, we shall report tonight on developments – now happening – in the FNM political campaign.
