Former Minister of Health and Elizabeth Estates MP Duane Sands has been ratified by the Free National Movement to run in the next general election.
Why it matters
As the FNM ratified its candidates, many waited to see if Sands would be ratified, since Sands, in many instances, has publicly opposed the policies of his party such as the Emergency Order.
The big picture
Speculations of an early election swirl as both major political parties ratify candidates.
What he says
Sands revealed the ratification on his Facebook page, stating, “The work continues…”
Sands has posted pictures of his team canvassing the Elizabeth Estates area despite the rumours that he may not receive the renomination.
