• The following statement was released on Tuesday, October 6, 2020 by One Bermuda Alliance Leader Craig Cannonier…

The OBA has a strong, committed team, with a number of new politicians,” OBA Leader Craig Cannonier said adding that they “will continue to be a relevant political force.”

The OBA Leader was speaking after the 2020 General Election, which saw the OBA win just 6 of the 36 seats in the House of Assembly.

On behalf of the members and officers of the One Bermuda Alliance, particularly our slate of candidates and their teams, I sincerely thank everyone who voted for the One Bermuda Alliance and supported us during the election campaign.

The One Bermuda Alliance congratulates the PLP, which now forms the government.

It is our fervent wish, for Bermuda’s sake, that their rhetoric can be matched with positive action.

The election has not changed the precarious situation of Bermuda; nor has it changed the hard challenges of the daily existence of our people.

Already, there is the shadow of the missing $800,000 and the issue at Harrington Sound Primary school.

The One Bermuda Alliance will speak to these, and other existing and emerging matters, as appropriate.

Our Parliamentary Team will support what is in the interest of Bermuda and take firm positions when the interests of the people are not being served.

“We will continue to be a vibrant voice for the people of Bermuda and its development, standing for fairness, equity, opportunities and good governance.

The One Bermuda Alliance is a very firmly established part of Bermuda’s political landscape and, in a short time, has made a huge contribution to Bermuda and Bermudians.

We are still the only other party with seats in the House of Assembly and the Senate.

That is instructive. The OBA is not going anywhere.

The OBA has a strong, committed team, with a number of new politicians. We will all continue our presence and work in the constituencies and confirm our importance to Bermuda.

We will continue to be a relevant political force.

We will continue to help secure a better life for our people and make Bermuda a better place for all.
