NASSAU, BAHAMAS – Prime Minister Philip Davis defending his administration’s four months in office amid criticism over its legislative agenda. Davis told parliamentarians, last night, it seems the Free National Movement is still licking its wounds.

Prime Minister Philip Davis defended his government’s four months in office as he fended off attacks from the Free National Movement.

Davis criticized the former administration’s time in office and argued that his government is pushing the ‘New Day’ agenda.

His comments came as he wrapped up debate on a resolution to acquire and transfer land to a hotel operator looking to purchase and further develop a hotel on New Providence.

Davis touched on several areas he counted as successes. He stressed the need to strike a balance between saving lives and preserving the economy.

Davis was responding to Opposition Leader Michael Pintard and Former Prime Minister Dr. Hubert Minnis who accused the government of having no real legislative agenda.

During his contribution to the debate, Pintard questioned how much time is needed to bring a series of legislation to address issues faced by Bahamians.

But the prime minister said it appears some FNMs are still licking their wounds following their election defeat.

As of Wednesday, no legislative measures were on parliament’s agenda.

The government tabled four bills – three pension bills and The Bahamas Agriculture and Marine Science Institute Bill.

Davis added that he finds complaints about the government’s legislative agenda interesting, given they’ve only been in office for four months.

However, he explained that since taking office, the government has hit the ground running.
