NASSAU, BAHAMAS – A former Free National Movement Cabinet Minister is throwing his support behind Marco City MP Michael Pintard for FNM leader. However, he admits he doesn’t think one of Pintard’s opponents should run for the top post.

Berthony McDermott reports.



As FNM’s prepare to choose a new leader at the party’s one-day convention next week, former St. Annes MP Brent Symonette is throwing his support behind Marco City MP Michael Pintard.

He believes Pintard has the most experience.

Pintard will go against East Grand Bahama MP Kwasi Thompson and Central Grand Bahama MP Iram Lewis.

Symonette said of the seven FNM MP’s, the three leadership contenders are the better choices considering they all held cabinet posts in the Minnis administration.

However, he doesn’t think one of them should be in the race.

The former Deputy Prime Minister said he hopes the three candidates will work together no matter who comes out on top.

Symonette served as Minister of Financial Services Trade Industry and Immigration in the last Minnis cabinet before he resigned.

He was also Deputy Prime Minister in the last Ingraham administration.

Following the FNM’s defeat at the polls in September, Symonette said unsuccessful candidates should go into those constituencies to conduct an assessment.
