Constituency Commission chairman recommends 43 constituencies for voter parity; $112K increase in budget

NASSAU, BAHAMAS — While a report submitted by Constituencies Commission Chairman Halson Moultrie concluded that the majority of commission members recommended no change to the boundaries, dissenting opinions from Moultrie recommended 43 constituencies.

On Friday, Eyewitness News reported that the house speaker had presented the governor general with the long-awaited boundaries report. However, the remaining four commissioners revealed that night that the report was submitted with a single signature — indicating that they intend to write to the governor general to reject it.
