By Aaron Humes: The Commonwealth of the Bahamas has again changed government according to local media projections tonight.
Bahamas Local reports that Philip Davis’ Liberal Progressive Party (PLP) is expected to win a majority of at least 20 seats in parliament against incumbent President Hubert Minnis and the Free National Movement (FNM).
The Tribune reports that Minnis conceded after calling the election several months ahead of schedule.
According to ZNS Bahamas, no party has been able to maintain government for more than a single five-year term since 1997, when the country was ruled by Hubert Ingraham.
The election was observed by CARICOM observers led by former Jamaican Prime Minister Bruce Golding. Belize’s Chief Electoral Officer Joséphine Tamai is also an observer.
