There was a meeting of the FNM’s Council held on Wednesday 22 September 2021 to determine the fate of the party going forward from their defeat on 16 September 2021.  There were some noisy councilors like Hiram Kelly who is not sober in the best of times, who ranted and cussed Hubert Minnis reportedly.  However, in the main they decided that they would hold on to Hubert Minnis until there is a convention to decide whether to elect a new leader. The convention is slated for November of this year.  The bet is that Michael Pintard, the MP for Marco City and Shannondon Cartwright, the MP for St Barnabas will give it a try as a pair to head the FNM.  Hubert Minnis says he will step down but no one counts on that being true when the time comes. Dr. Minnis for his part, observers say, are determined that it will not be that pair and instead hopes that Kwasi Thompson, his cousin , and the former Minister of State for Finance, will emerge the Leader of the Opposition. In the meantime, the Governor General has sworn in Dr. Minnis as Leader of the Opposition.  This is a decision made by the Governor General in own deliberate judgement. The presentation of the instrument took place on Friday 24 September 2021
