NASSAU, Bahamas (CMC) — Prime Minister Perry Christie announced that  May 10th is the date for the general elections in the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) country.

The announcement came as the Parliament was dissolved paving the way for the poll.

“It is now left to you, the citizenry of our beloved nation to decide who will fill those seats in the next House of Assembly,” Christie said.

Christie led the Progressive Liberal Party (PLP) to victory in the 2012 general election defeating the then ruling Free National Movement (FNM) for control of the 41-seat Parliament.
