Democratic National Alliance (DNA)

The Democratic National Alliance or The DNA is a political party in the Commonwealth of the Bahamas. The party is currently led by Branville McCartney, former MP for Bamboo Town.

The party is devoted to deepening democracy, upholding equity and the rule of law, safeguarding individual freedoms, diversification of the economy and educational reform. In the 2012 General Election, the party contested all thirty-eight parliamentary constituencies, the first third party to do so in Bahamian history; but lost in all of the races, including that in McCartney's constituency. However, they did manage to secure approximately 13,186 votes; enough to swing the outcomes of at least 15 different areas. Experts believe that without the DNA, the Free National Movement would have been successful in retaining the government in the 2012 general elections.
