NASSAU, BAHAMAS – Former Long Island MP And Free National Movement Deputy Leader Loretta Butler-Turner says the FNM needs a leader that will bring the party together, however she doesn’t think any of the sitting MP’s are capable of that.

Berthony McDermott reports.



Weeks away from the FNM’s convention where a new leader will be selected, Central Grand Bahama MP Iram Lewis and East Grand Bahama MP Kwasi Thompson announced they’re looking to snatch the top post. 

It’s rumored that Marco City Mp Michael Pintard will announce his run for leadership in the coming days. 

While she admits she’s not familiar with all of the names mentioned, Butler-Turner says Pintard is the best person out of the current bunch to rebuild the party.   

The FNM suffered a crushing defeat at the polls on September 16th, securing only seven of the 39 seats in parliament. 

At a council meeting in September, the party decided that Dr. Minnis will stay on as party leader until that convention in November when a new leader will be chosen. 

He’s said he will not seek nomination at that time. 

The former Long Island MP says the party now needs a time of reflection.
