(The Nassau Guardian) Dr. Hubert Minnis was sworn in as the prime minister of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas Thursday night during a short ceremony at Government House.
In his first speech as prime minister, Minnis pledged to uphold the ideals of the country. He said Bahamians from all walks of life joined “hands and hearts” to chart a new course for country.
“I again thank the Bahamian people for reposing their trust in my party,” Minnis said. “We will honor this trust with an unwavering commitment to good governance, the rule of law, transparency and accountability.
“We will respect the constitution and we will abide by the longstanding and tested conventions of our parliamentary democracy.”
