The leader of the country’s newest political force set out its stall for voters at the weekend.
Marc Bean, a founder and head of the Free Democratic Movement and a former leader of the Progressive Labour Party, said the party was designed to maintain and uphold a healthy democratic system, and to “provide a vision and policies that stimulate Bermuda’s economic and cultural development, to effectively move beyond identity and race politics and to cultivate the manifestation of an open, benevolent and free society”.
He said the creation of the party was a reaction to “the governance of the country in the last three years”.
Mr Bean added: “Naturally, in observing the direction of the country, we started to give consideration to participating in the electoral process by providing a tangible option.
“The fact we are able to offer a policy on education before the other entities shows that we are well prepared to go through the election period.”
