Fort Charlotte MP Mark Humes said he still does not know why he was not renominated by the Free National Movement to run in the 2022 General Election.
In what could be his last contribution in the House of Assembly on Monday, Humes said he continues to smile because “these things are just a part of life.”
“So what if I didn’t get a nomination for the next general election, that doesn’t mean life is over.”
The big picture
The Free National Movement ratified Drumeco Archer to run in the 2022 General Election, surprising Humes who said he was expecting to run again.
When Prime Minister Hubert Minnis alluded to Archer as the next MP for the area, in the House of Assembly last week Wednesday, Humes stood to his feet demanding that Minnis respect his position as the sitting MP.
What Humes says
Humes said he is grateful that Minnis called to inform him that he will not be ratified.
“The Prime Minister did call me following the exchange. It was the right gesture.
“But if he didn’t call or reach out to me, it would not mean my life is over,” he said.
Humes said contrary to speculations, he has not accepted any offers from his party nor any other political group.
