About Us - The Formation of New Generation Politics in The Bahamas
The Bahamas Constitution Party was formed in 1998, when Ali McIntosh was given a vision and a divine mandate to begin a new political machinery for the next generation of politics in the Bahamas. Even though the political machinery will focus on the preservation of the next generation; its mandate is based on the original intent of the The Preamble of the Bahamian Constitution.
Some of the persons giving advice, encouragement and assisted with the planning during the early formative years of the party was:-
1. The late Rt Honourable Sir Lynden O. Pindling, KCMG
(Former Prime Minister of The Commonwealth of the Bahamas for 25 yrs, and Leader of the Progressive Liberal Party for 40 yrs)
2. The late Sir Randol Fawkes
3. Pastor Dr Jane Hopeful White
4. Mr. Lynden Nairn, Accountant
5. Minister Samuel Thompson
6. Minister Micklyn Seymour
7. Many others lend their advice and support.
The BCP was officially launched on May 14th 1999, in the cradle of a church service at the Golden Gates Assemblies World Outreach Ministries, who gladly opened their doors for the new political move for righteous governance. The Rev. Dr Roston Davis, Senior Pastor of the Golden Gates Assembly Church, and Apostle C. Clifford Smith were ministers who officiated during the launch service, under the theme, " Rulers Must Be Just" featured in II Samuel 23: 1-7.
The Bahamas Constitution Party is a conservative political party committed to the principles of good governance and constitutional democracy, as outlined in the Preamble, and the remaining articles of the Constitution of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas.
As outlined in the Preamble, we believe that Christian Principles and Spiritual Values must be inherent components of the attitude of leadership, and how leadership relate to governance and the people they are called to serve.
We believe that for Peace, Order and Prosperity to be ultimately realized in the nation, the Rule of Law must be given the respect and honor that was originally foreshadowed by the founders of the nation; as is indicated by the phrase 'an abiding respect for the Rule of Law' outlined in the second refrain of the Preamble of the Constitution.
As a government, the BCP promises to serve the Bahamian people with pride and honor; and with the sincerest belief, that the greatest potential of the Bahamian people is yet to be realized. Therefore if given the opportunity to serve you, we will with God's help, promises to deliver the governance of this nation back into the hands of the Bahamian People; and ultimately, back under the influence of the Almighty God (Elohim), the original architect and founder of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas.
