NASSAU, Bahamas – The polls have closed and Bahamians are now awaiting the results of the 2017 General Elections.
Prime Minister Perry G. Christie is trying to lead his Progressive Liberal Party to a second consecutive five-year term in office.
Voters today choose between Christie’s governing PLP or reviving the main opposition,
the Free National Movement (FNM), which had been in power before Christie’s government took over in 2012.
A third party, the Democratic National Alliance (DNA), also contested the election but experts say it is unlikely to garner a significant number of votes.
