Bahamas – 2012

Bahamas – 2012

After 5 years in government, the Bahamian electorate is divided on Prime Minister Ingraham’s latest term in office.  Growing Chinese influence, and a rising national debt in the wake of the 2008 Recession, have many voters unsure of whether they will back the Prime Minister for another term in office.  The Progressive Liberal Party have rebounded from their 2007 electoral loss, and are set to challenge the Prime Minister on his most recent governing record.  According to the latest polls, the race appears to be neck and neck with both the Progressive Liberal Party and Free National Movement vying to attract independent voters into their respective corners.  A brand new third-party, the Democratic National Alliance, led by Member Of Parliament for Bamboo Town Branville McCartney has emerged onto the political scene following internal disputes within the FNM.  Seemingly attracting a strong amount of support, combined with high voter frustration, will they spoil the election for either major party?

  1. nice scenario, whats your next scenario plan? could you do trinidad&tobago or jamaica?

  2. Hi there,

    Thank you for the feedback. I intend to continue doing Bahamian scenarios to the 1960’s (the electoral system prior is not scaleable in PMI), but I do have intentions to possibly publish scenarios for Turks & Caicos as well as Jamaica. I am not that familiar with the political climate in T&T, but I can possibly do some research in the future regarding scenarios taking place there.
