June 15, 2017 | 23 Comments

According to an online advertisement being run by the One Bermuda Alliance on Youtube, Fabian Minors will be their candidate for Constituency #13 Devonshire North Central, a seat currently held by the PLP’s Diallo Rabain who won the seat in a 2016 by-election.

The 2016 by-election was prompted by the retirement of PLP MP Glenn Blakeney, and saw Mr Rabain win 461 votes, while the OBA’s Andrew Simons received 351 votes.

In the 2012 General Election, Mr Blakeney defeated the OBA’s C. Anthony Francis by a margin of 19 votes, winning 51.18% of the vote [411 votes], while Mr Francis won 48.82% of the vote [392 votes].

In the 2007 General Election, Mr Blakeney won 53.52% of the vote vs the UBP’s Albertha Waite, and in the 2003 General Election Mr Blakeney won 57.22% of the vote vs the UBP’s Hilary Soares.

Elections held prior to 2003 were held under a different system than we have now, with constituencies electing two MPs, and since the one MP system was implemented, Devonshire North Central has elected a PLP MP on all four times they went to the polls.

The previously announced confirmed candidates for the July 18th election are:

  • Constituency #1 St Georges North: Kenneth Bascome [OBA] Renee Ming [PLP]
  • Constituency #2 George’s West: Nandi Outerbridge [OBA] Kim Swan [PLP]

    Good for you Fabian. He is a passionate man who will work hard for his constituents.

    • Reality Check 2017 says:

      @Cow Polly:

      Really? “Passionate” is a good word to describe him – agreed. But sometimes passion can be a deadly thing. With this selection, I have to question the vetting process of the OBA – seriously. His employment past is enough to make me question him as a candidate.

      Just being real – straight up. Ask him yourself when he comes to your house.

    • A good Surrogate choice.

  2. C13 Voter says:

    Hmmm. So far the OBA is running almost all the same candidates in the same constituencies they did in the 2012. Francis (who lives in C13) only lost by 19 votes but they don’t run him again for the bi-election or the general election. Was it his choice not to run or was he snubbed? I wonder.

  3. bigsis says:

    I wish I lived in his constituency so I could vote for him. Good Luck Fabian!

  4. Mother Theresa says:

    Good choice!! Good luck Fabian!

  5. Coffee says:

    The only Fabian we know of blew shrew here years ago . Dunkley is scraping … Hard !

    • TO COFFEE:
      yES!!
      DUNKLEY IS SCRAPING hard!!
      Keep in mind Shawn Crockwell turned his back on Dunkley and blasted Dunkley during his LAST speech.
      oba was not all that or Shawn would have stayed.
      They are lethal!!

    i am new to this country and notice how one party has a diverse group of candidates representing a wide group of people in bda and the other party does not.

    • Angus says:

      What observation do you have of the makeup of the IB sector senior teams? Diverse and representative of Bermuda after decades of being resident on the island?

    • Angus says:

      What observation do you have of the makeup of the IB sector senior teams? Diverse and representative of Berqmuda after decades of being resident on the island?

      • Zevon says:

        Yes. Lots of Bermudians, including black Bermudians, as a matter of fact.

        • Angus says:

          Oh okay… seems to differ from the observations of those within the senior ranks of IB, as they are trying to obtain diversification in order to strengthen their ranks.

          But as you point to Bermudians and Blacks when asked about diversification rather than gender, age or any other form of diversification it is clear that you are a bigot and that any reply from you on this topic will simply not be creditable.

    • lifetime says:

      Do you know who pulls the puppet strings?

    • Well steve, you need a History lesson on Bermuda before you make comments.
      I bet that where you just came from, if there is a History of Colonial resistance, then you will understand.

      • bdaboy says:

        “Well steve, you need a History lesson on Bermuda before you make comments.”

        No, bigot, he doesn’t…anyone can make any comment they want, they don’t need your permission.
        If only you weren’t such a lying POS, bigoted, homophobic racist, you’d know this as well.

    • TO Steve:
      If you are NEW in this country, do you have the rights to vote.
      Oh!! The “other” party does not have too much diversity because that is the way it was “set up”.
      Ask BORN BERMUDIANS who are pro the other party and they will be able to tell you all of the hurting truth!!
      Things are not what they appear to be when you look at a situation. There are underlying factors which play a significant part!!
