PM says term limit, election date bills before end of year

While Prime Minister Dr. Hubert Minnis would not give a date on when the government will table bills to implement a term limit for prime minister and a fixed election date, he said yesterday those bills will “definitely” come before the end of the year.

Following the Securities Commission Public Companies Forum, Minnis was asked by a reporter how soon those bills will be tabled.

He responded, “very soon”.

The prime minister did not provide any other information on the matter.

Before he left for his September trip to the United Nations in New York, Minnis said the bills would be tabled two weeks later.

However, that did not happen.

On the campaign trail, Minnis said the Free National Movement would push for a term limit for prime minister and a fixed election date.

It is unclear when the government expects to call a referendum to address term limits and a fixed election date.
