The recent bill "to amend the pubic holidays act to create 10th January as Majority Rule Day and a public holiday" has officially been moved in the House of Representatives of the Bahamas by Fred Mitchell, MP.

Last month (11-Apr-2013), the Prime Minister of the Bahamas, Perry Gladstone Christie, has introduced legislation in Parliament confirming intent of making Majority Rule a new annual national public holiday in the Bahamas, and of renaming the Labour Day non-working public holiday in honour of the late Sir Randol Fawkes.

Earlier this year (09-Jan-2013), Bahamas Prime Minister, Perry Gladstone Christie, had announced that the Bahamas Cabinet would consider declaring January 10 as a new "Majority Rule" annual non-working public holiday in the Bahamas, starting in 2014, as "Majority Rule is arguably the most important event in the country's history with the exception of the Abolition of Slavery and Independence".
