Nassau, Bahamas — She was a fierce Attorney General implementing the Swift Justice policy in the Christie PLP administration; but over the weekend Allyson Maynard-Gibson confirmed she would not seek the Pinewood seat in the upcoming general elections.
Affirming her intent to stand committed to the people of the Bahamas and back a return of a PLP administration, Madame Senator reassured listeners on the JCN Network over the weekend, she “Support Perry Gladstone Christie” in his return to power whenever the next general elections are called.
Maynard-Gibson confirmed that she does not feel the same fire, which is necessary to take on the many problems facing the country as she did in 2002, and therefore, she feels the time is right to make way for new fresh young representation in the country.
Dispelling “nasty” rumours of her joining the FNM Maynard-Gibsons said, “I am by genetics tied to the PLP and such nasty vicious rumours are that, rumours.
“I will now commit myself to mentor the next generation of PLP representatives to the Parliament and will do all in my power to see the return of a PLP government.”
Cynthia ‘Mother’ Pratt also confirmed her intent to bow out of front-line politics and stood down as the deputy leader at the Party’s October 2009 Convention. The conclave move called the election win for Cat Island, Rum Cay and San Salvador MP, Philip ‘Brave’ Davis, as Christie’s number one man and potential heir to the PLP throne.
Davis, a longtime law partner and protector of Christie, is seen by many as the Party’s “Quiet Storm” in its bid to return to power. Bahamians also have already seen Davis as the successor to the throne.
