Prime Minister Dr Hubert Minnis said if a reelected, a Minnis-led government would end the COVID-19 emergency orders in November and implement a “bold” economic vision for the country.
The Free National Movement leader spoke on Friday and Saturday night at drive-in rallies on Grand Bahama and New Providence, introducing the party’s candidates and platform for the September 16 General Election.
Minnis outlined his administration’s plan in its next term for economic growth and development and took the opportunity to launch a scathing attack on Progressive Liberal Party (PLP) Leader Philip Davis and his leadership.
He said if, given the privilege to serve as prime minister for a second term, he would bring an end to the emergency orders in mid-November and continue the FNM’s plan of economic recovery.
“Given all that we’ve been through we need to make big and long-term decisions in the post-COVID-19 world,” Minnis said.
“To do this your next government needs a mandate from the people. Tonight, I am asking you for a new mandate to help rebuild our country and our economy.
“The FNM has a bold vision which includes greater of ownership of the economy by Bahamians.”
