PLP Party Leader Perry Christie will address a press conference this morning at 11AM and respond to Hubert Ingraham. PLP candidate Ryan Pinder stand alongside his Party leader.
Nassau, Bahamas — Ryan Pinder has won the majority of the votes in the by-election in Elizabeth. Nevertheless, this morning Duane Sands was on Bahamas at Sunrise punch drunk telling the public, he’s the member–elect for Elizabeth, far from it.
- 1) No winner has been declared in the Elizabeth by- election.
- 2) Ryan Pinder has polled 1504 votes Duane Sands has polled 1501
- 3) An Election court is necessary to determine a winner because 5 of the voters who cast their votes for Pinder votedprotest ballot and only the court can therefore, investigate those voters and declare a winner. on a
For what reason the candidate of the FNM would stand on the TV and LIE about his status following the election is dangerously undemocratic and shamefully distasteful.
Sands’ appearance on Bahamas at Sunrise this morning proves he’s dumber than hot grits and is as equally arrogant and irresponsible as his mad man leader Hubert Ingraham.
In 2008 Supreme Court Senior Justice Anita Allen and Justice Jon Isaacs, who presided over the Pinewood election court case, noted in their ruling that certain procedures ought to be put in place to ensure the integrity of the register. The justices labeled the department as having “egregious failures”.
However, Ingraham’s response to the justices was that nothing is wrong with the process and that the FNM had won the government fear and square. Ingraham did nothing to rectify the problems.
When Bahamas Press raised concerns over the fact that some 700 persons on the register in Elizabeth could not be found it was Hubert Ingraham who said publicly he had all the confidence in the world in the integrity of the register. His candidate said he saw nothing wrong with the register and agreed he was going with it. And from day one of the discoveries of PLP election manager, Bernard Nottage, wrote an epistle arguing over the integrity of the register in the constituency.
However, now that young Ryan Pinder numbers have exceeded Sands, suddenly something is wrong with the register and the department.
Bahamas Press warned Ingraham in October 2007 about our concerns about the Parliamentary Commissioner and his department. He fired everyone but kept Errol Bethel in place.
So now don’t complain Hubert, take ya lickings like a man!
Newbie you better go to Mackey St where conversations are in favour of PAPA and his goons.This site regularly mashed Perry Christie and FNMs were very gleeful and actually looked forward to stories.Ask the disgraced bahamasyouth who now uses the name ncl smith.If you need a bias entity then read the Tribune,nassau guardian or listen to ZNS.How come you are not appalled when PAPA going around threatening everyone?talk about biased then look in the mirror or use your red handkerchief.
Altec, cots it not the issue The point is that the challenged voters have to give evidence.
Raah in your previous post you said, “we just had 2 election Court cases you know? One reason that it costs plenny money was because certain voters who were challenged had to be put up in Nassau.”
You rasied the issue of cost as it pertained to accomadation not me. I was simply rebutting your idea by saying that those cost wouldnt be as such seeing that the 5 voters involved lives on the island where the trial will take place.
WE REPORT you decide.
We report Newbie you decide.
NLC stands for National Crazy Louse.
The greatest fraud was when Peter Carey an known goon and operative of the FNM flew to the United States to bring residents and students back to the capital to vote in the Elizabeth constituency.
Bahamas Press REPORTS NCL, you decide.
BP, Goman, Francis and Earling williams are absolutely frauds and as such they have now included in the count for Ryan the fraud votes… that Ryan got.. shame on BP, they no limites to their madness… and to think I have to come here to set these CRIMINALS on the right tract… What a country what a wicked set of corrupt editors…
Almost as bad as the Tribune hey NCL?
How could you compare a rag sheet BS internet site to the historically newspaper called the Tribune… Get real…
What is “historically newspaper” Jokes fa days!
NCL, do you know the history of the Tribune? You obvously dont, cause if you did, you wont think of that paper so fondly!
When you used the name bahamasyouth and made similar assessments I told you to go to the Archives and read up on Bahamian history but you have failed to do so.I have dtermined that just to ensure that history is not distorted to answer all of the ludricous and asinine statements that you and other misinformed present here.
Raah, the cost shouldnt be that high in this case as the 5 voters in question live in NP and not any of the Family islands. So The cost of traveling and accommodation should will be nil.
Secondly Raah, STATUS may be an issue for Hubert Ingraham, but in this challenge it is not the issue before the court.
The court is being asked to certify a winner in the election in Elizabeth that is all. Now if the FNM has issues with status, ballots, the registered list, then they can take that up with the Election Court after Ryan Pinder is SEATED as the MP.
We are certain he and his team don’t mind entertaining all the silliness Ingraham perpetrated in the head of a now desperate Ingraham in an attempt to avoid having been declared DEFEATED BY PERRY CHRISTIE! LOLOLOLOLOL!
It is amazing one day the FNM say they don’t believe elections are won in the court, and now they say Oh we gat plenty to tell the court. Desperate people say and do DESPERATE things. I guess the alleged Chief Justice advise is showing the public just how DUMB Ingraham really is.
Im new to this blog and I think you are bias and very immature.
Media, we just had 2 election Court cases you know? One reason that it costs plenny money was because certain voters who were challenged had to be put up in Nassau. The record is clear. Sigh….
Who say they must appear? There addresses and location must be verified and status in the country satisfied in the country. Yinner forget these people would have bills in their names ech?
And who defies an order of the court to appear before it? Failure to do so means you have placed yourself in contempt. Yinner know what that means. Don’t let papa put garbage in ya head. The people will show if requested by the court. They will be summoned if we come to that hurdle.
Media, Dr. sands is not the one threatening to bring any action, so he does not have to defend his status. Sigh…
Why are you men and women still distorting what the current Law is? Simply having an entitlement to US citizenship does not provide estoppel to hold a seat in Parliament. Actively taking advantage of such entitlement may though, but that will be determined in the preliminary hearing when it will be put that Ryan Pinder does not have any standing to pursue this matter. Let us wait for this process to play out, before you frighten the 5 into not even showing up to Court, which would be unfortunate…
A desperate man will say anything Kevin you don’t know that? If Ryan wasn’t Bahamian how in the hell his nomination was never challenged?
What is fact though is that Duane Sands requested and was granted a US green card. The law is clear on attaining status by self.
Ryan Pinder’s father is a BAHAMIAN his mother is an AMERICAN therefore he was ENTITLED TO BOTH BAHAMIAN AND AMERICAN CITIZENSHIP AT BIRTH.Duane Sands has two children with AMERICAN CITIZENSHIP,HOWEVER THEY TOO ARE ENTITLED TO BAHAMIAN CITIZENSHIP because their father is a BAHAMIAN.PAPA INGRAHAM’S daughter married a CANADIAN and her children are also ENTITLED TO BOTH CANADIAN AND BAHAMIAN CITIZENSHIP,WILL PAPA INGRAHAM NOW DENY HIS GRAND CHILDREN A BAHAMIAN PASSPORT?Numerous Bahamians in Bimini,Abaco,New Providence and Andros were born in the USA and therefore HAVE BOTH BAHAMIAN AND AMERICAN CITIZENSHIP FROM BIRTH,ARE THEY LESS OF A BAHAMIAN THAN THOSE BAHAMIANS WHO WERE BORN IN THE BAHAMAS BY BOTH BAHAMIAN PARENTS?
