Statement from the Chairman of the PLP
On government’s statement on Venezuela.
For Immediate Release
1 May 2019
The statement by the Bahamas Government on Venezuela is hypocritical.
This FNM government abandoned the country’s principle of non interference in the affairs of other countries. In stead it helped to foment the disorder we now see, condemning the present Venezuelan government as illegitimate, yet it now calls on that same illegitimate government to keep order.
Our government should always be an honest broker and not promote policies which foment disorder.
The PLP says the Bahamas has no dog in the hunt and should have stuck to the non interference principle.
