The government has, for quite some time, alluded to the introduction of set dates for the General Election and rules to govern the prime minister’s term in office, the long-awaited process will now be reviewed and tabled in the coming weeks, affirmed Dr. Minnis.

He revealed Monday that Cabinet will begin advancing those discussions at the start of October.

“We made a commitment that we will bring in term limits and we will do that,” Dr. Minnis said.

“We have also made a commitment that we will bring fixed dates for the General Election and we will bring that forth also.
