The Minister of Youth, Sports and Culture Danny Johnson announced to his branch on 19 July that he is leaving front line politics and supporting Senator Keith Bell, the Minister of State as his replacement. Here is what he told the Branch:

19 July

WORDS CANNOT EXPRESS MY PRIDE AND BELIEF IN THE POTENTIAL AND SIGNIFICANCE OF TEAM BAHAMAS

It is with mixed feelings however that I advise you the great people of Carmichael after meeting with the candidate’s committee and its chair the party’s leader and Prime Minister that because of personal reasons, I will not seek the PLP’s nomination for the Carmichael constituency for the 2017 general elections. It was a long and thoughtful process that brought me to this decision. I will return to private practice but I will continue to be an activist for youth empowerment and sports development in this country. I intend to fully participate in the process of informing public policy through social advocacy.

I extend my sincere thanks to the great people of Carmichael for welcoming me with open arms, for putting up with me and my ministerial schedule and for being a willing social partner as we worked shoulder to shoulder to build the best little country in the world one community at a time.

My cabinet colleague and friend Senator Keith Bell who is a good friend of Carmichael has expressed an interest in working with you and representing your interest at the highest level. I am sure others may emerge but I trust and support Senator Bell’s candidacy and I am confident that if afforded the same privilege as you have afforded me, Senator Bell will not let you down. I will do all that I can to ensure that Senator Bell is elected the next member of Parliament for the Carmichael constituency.

Thank you again, it was a pleasure to serve you and may God bless you all.

MAY ALMIGHTY GOD BLESS THE COMMONWEALTH OF THE BAHAMAS
