PLP congratulates Prime Minister Christie on 40 years of public service - Nov 27, 2014 - 11:33:03 AM


The Holy Bible defines one generation as forty years and for the personal sacrifice and selfless service – placing the interests of this country above self for one generation – the PLP family congratulates and pays tribute to our leader and Prime Minister, the Rt. Hon. Perry Gladstone Christie.

 His record as a parliamentarian is stellar, having entered public life and front line politics in 1974 as one of the youngest senators ever appointed at the age of 31. Prime Minister Christie would join the Lower House after the 1977 General Election as the Honourable member for Centerville and go on to win his seat eight consecutive times, including the 1987 general elections when he contested the seat as an independent candidate.

GBHRA Pres. Fred Smith chastises the DNA over 'regressive' immigration stance - Nov 27, 2014 - 11:26:31 AM

GBHRA president and prominent attorney Fred Smith, QC, cried shame on the DNA for supporting the government’s harsh new immigration policy. Smith said he won a string of cases in the 1980s which pronounced the current enforcement tactics illegal.

The Democratic National Alliance (DNA) is being chastised for supporting the government’s harsh new immigration policy – a prominent human rights advocate saying the fledgling party is condoning regressive and dictatorial tendencies.

Smith, president of the Grand Bahama Human Rights Association (GBHRA), said anyone who supports the “illegal, immoral and unconstitutional” tactics being used by Immigration officers, including midnight raids and home invasions that terrorize communities, cannot also claim to represent progressive and enlightened ideas.

“The DNA styles itself as the party of the future,” Smith said. “In fact, with its support of the government’s Gestapo tactics when it comes to immigration...
