Outgoing prime minister and Free National Movement (FNM) leader, Hubert Ingraham conceded defeat shortly before 10 p.m., and announced that he would not lead the party in opposition and would resign his seat in Parliament.
“I shall return to private life from whence I came,” said Ingraham.
Speaking at the FNM’s headquarters on Mackey Street, Ingraham congratulated prime minister-elect and PLP Leader Perry Christie.
He thanked the party and his constituency, North Abaco, that elected him eight consecutive times and his family, from the bottom of his heart.
Ingraham’s seat will go to a bye-election and the FNM will have to nominate not only a deputy leader in June, but also a new leader of the party.
