NASSAU, BAHAMAS – A leaked document is demanding Free National Movement Vice Chairman Richard Johnson be reinstated after he was barred from attending council meetings and had some responsibilities stripped.

A letter addressed to FNM Leader Michael Pintard and Party Chairman Dr. Duane Sands is urging them to reinstate the vice chairman.

The letter reveals that on October 30, 2022, a memorandum addressed to Johnson from the part chairman read… “effective immediately all duties previously assigned to you as vice chairman have been reassigned.”

Additionally, Johnson no longer has responsibility for any constituency association and is not authorized to speak on behalf of the party.

Two weeks ago, the party called an emergency council meeting, after a voice note circulated on WhatsApp of Johnson calling a press conference where he intended to call for Dr. Sands’ resignation.

The council voted 103 to 13, restricting Johnson from attending future council meetings.

Johnson retained the legal counsel of former Progressive Liberal Party Marco City MP Gregory Moss. That’s the seat Pintard now holds.

The letter also reads the reassignment by Dr. Sands and the prohibition against him speaking on behalf of the party was done, “without any meeting of the Executive Committee having been called to consider and authorize the same.”

It continues, “no vote of the Executive Committee was taken to suspend our client’s membership therein nor reassign his duties as vice chairman.”

Johnson has expressed his unwavering support for former Leader Dr. Hubert Minnis and is rumored to be on his payroll.

The letter gives the party until November 23 to respond or the matter will go to the Supreme Court.

Both Pintard and Dr. Sands declined to comment on the matter.
