Statement by the Chairman of the Progressive Liberal Party
For Immediate Release
24 July 2021
In desperation to hold on to power, Dr. Hubert A. Minnis and FNM Chairman, Carl Culmer, are seemingly heading and condoning the nastiest, malicious, and most deceptive election campaign in our nation's history.
No attack on URCA and or the PLP by Dr. Minnis, Carl Culmer, and the FNM can dismiss the facts: The FNM created and paid for defamatory television ads and used its power on Aliv's board to have Cable Bahamas air the nasty ads loaded with lies. URCA has now ordered the ads to be removed and Cable Bahamas stands to pay a substantial amount of money, all because of the FNM's political lies.
Sadly, the FNM appears to be hooked on the advice of its foreign advisors trying to run a 2017 election in 2021. The same propaganda, political lies and trickery will not work this time.
After four years of miserably failing the Bahamian people, why is the FNM so focused on the PLP and cannot run on their record? Truth be told, Dr. Minnis and the FNM know they cannot run on their record. The long winded releases by the American consultants are not convincing.
When the FNM's highly paid advisors are gone back home laughing and loaded with cash, Bahamians will be celebrating for successfully getting rid of Dr. Minnis and this lousy FNM government.
The Bahamian people will not be fooled this time.
We call on Dr. Minnis and the FNM to apologize to Cable Bahamas and the Bahamian people for the nasty ads and while at it, seek forgiveness for going into a Catholic church in Cat Island recently and echoing the same type nasty political lies consistent with the television ads that have now been removed by the relevant authority.
Dr. Minnis and the FNM will pay for the nasty and lowdown advice they have taken long after their highly paid foreign advisors are gone.
Dr. Minnis and the FNM are desperate and shameless.
They must go.
