Bahamas – 2007

Bahamas – 2007

Embroiled in political scandal surrounding the fast tracking of the residency application for Anna Nicole Smith, the Christie administration is now up for reelection. Former Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham has reentered front-line politics after a brief hiatus, and will lead the Free National Movement into the upcoming general election. The Bahamas Democratic Movement, a small third party option for Bahamians disaffected with both the PLP and FNM, will contest several seats as well. In addition to the Anna Nicole Smith scandal, voters will have to decide between the two parties on many other issues, such as economic policy, the financial services sector, and environmental issues among others. Will Bahamians be content with the steady economic growth of the past five years, or will political scandal and perceptions of poor governance mark the end of the Christie administration?

Please feel free to leave any feedback, concerns, constructive criticism, or comments below.  I have redesigned the map due to difficulties in obtaining exact boundaries for Bahamian constituencies during this era.

A non-binding plan of action (depending on the amount of my personal time available) for further scenarios is as follows :

  • North Abaco – 2012 by-election
  • Elizabeth – 2010 by-election
  • Jamaica – 2016
  • Jamaica – 2011
  • Turks and Caicos – 2016
  • Trinidad and Tobago – 2015

I do not want to mention any further scenarios due to the risk of overextending myself given the amount of time that it takes to produce these. There may be deviations from this list, but these are what I hopefully have time to produce in the coming months.

Hope that everyone is able to enjoy!

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?

Bahamas – 2017

Bahamas – 2017

After 5 years in government, the ruling Progressive Liberal Party remains deeply unpopular with the Bahamian electorate. Allegations of corruption, and a high level of mistrust from Bahamian voters, continue to dog the party as the general election approaches. On the other hand, the opposition Free National Movement continues to struggle with internal disarray as their candidate for the general election, the Hon. Hubert Minnis, recently lost a vote of no confidence to remain as the sitting Leader of the Opposition in the House Of Assembly. Can the FNM quiet their internal struggles to proceed as a unified party into the upcoming election, or will the PLP win another 5 years of governance?
