Members of the House of Assembly | Speakers of the House of Assembly

In The Bahamas, the public democratically elects 41 Members of Parliament (commonly known as MPs) to represent their interests and concerns in the House of Assembly. In the “house” MPs consider and propose new laws, and can scrutinize government policies by asking ministers questions about current issues.

Prior to 1959 only males who had British citizenship were permitted to seek membership. The right to vote was also restricted to white males who were 21 years or older, and who were resident in the colony for 12 months. These restrictions were removed in the mid 19th century, allowing all Bahamians the opportunity take part in the electoral process.
