Women Still Important to the PLP
- Oct 21, 2017 - 12:09:07 AM
Even before the formation of the great Progressive Liberal Party, women
have always played a leading role in the positive growth and development
of The Bahamas, therefore, it was no strange thing that when the
opportunity came for them to vote, they seized it observing and knowing
it would be the PLP that would give them the ability to build a
It was through the unity of the Women's
Suffrage Movement that a foundation was provided for courageous women to
demonstrate their right to vote in the General Elections.

Human history gives a very confusing picture of the proper role of women
in the family and in society. In some cases, she is the dominant
figure, while in many cultures and throughout much of history she has
been viewed as second-class at best, and little more than property or
chattel at the other extreme...

Statement by Jerome Fitzgerald Former Education Minister in response to Works Minister Desmond Bannister:
is obviously to me that the Honourable Desmond Bannister has nothing
better to do with his time than to mislead the House and the Country
where I am concerned. One would have thought that in light of the recent
hurricane and the many school repairs still underway a month after
school openings, he would have been more productively engaged, but
clearly this is not the case.
The Minister appears to be quite
versed on the ruling in the recent Save the Bays matter...

Komolafe: Hurricane relief efforts should be prudent, pragmatic, logical and holistic
- Sep 25, 2017 - 5:02:27 PM
The Democratic National Alliance (DNA) joins the rest of the nation and
the world at large in prayers for persons that have been displaced,
dispossessed or impacted in some form by Hurricanes Irma and Maria. We
are mindful that the devastation left in the wake of these storms has
affected individuals both at home here in The Bahamas, the Caribbean
region and the United States.
In the midst of the challenges we
all face in rebuilding, it is imperative that a prudent, pragmatic,
logical and holistic approach is adopted. In this regard, we note with
interest the commitment made by Prime Minister, Dr. The Hon. Hubert A.
Minnis to accommodate Dominican students into the Bahamian school system
in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria’s catastrophic impact on the island

Brave Davis: The need for a bipartisan approach to fighting crime
- Sep 21, 2017 - 10:34:44 AM
Statement By Hon. Philip Brave Davis, Leader of The Opposition:
Free National Movement during the general election identified reducing
criminal violence as a critical priority for their administration. The
government's crime strategy remains nonstrategic and unprioritized.
Independently from the human tragedies leaving a trail of violence
across the corridors of our country, violent crimes remain an impediment
to our economic development.
The reality of the country's crime
circumstance implores the Progressive Liberal Party to agitate a
bipartisan approach beyond just scrutinizing government policy...

The reports of 9 shootings last night resulting in at least two

Providence are matters of grave concern to all right-thinking Bahamians.

murders occurring throughout The Bahamas. In the last few days an 8-

Within the last 4 months alone we

DNA: Still No Help and Hope for Grand Bahama
- Aug 27, 2017 - 2:15:21 PM
Last week, the nation’s second city took center stage on the national
dailies but not in the way that many Grand Bahamians have hoped. The
recent media reports surrounding the breakdown of negotiations for the
sale of hotels on the Lucayan Strip on Grand Bahama are just the latest
in series of unfortunate events for the island and its residents.
passage of the hurricanes in 2004 and 2005 did irreparable damage to
the Grand Bahama economy, sending thousands of Bahamians to the
unemployment line when the Royal Oasis resort closed its doors. Since
then the island has struggled to regain its footing and its residents
though promised help and hope by successive governments have for the
most part, been left to fend for themselves...
DNA: The unfulfilled 100 days
- Aug 23, 2017 - 3:39:08 PM
On May 10, The Free National Movement secured a landslide victory at the
polls. Armed with a myriad of pre-election promises on how to improve
the lives of Bahamians, the Minnis led opposition rode a wave of
anti-PLP sentiment into office and declared that after 5 years of
lackluster governance it would finally be The People’s Time.
Unfortunately, more than 100 days into this term, it has become
painfully clear that the FNM, though clearly capable of winning the
election, was not prepared to govern.
On the campaign trail, the
party’s leadership unveiled a substantial list of promises which they
pledged would be part of an immediate plan of action designed to improve
the lives of Bahamians.....
Statement by Brave Davis on the detention of Shane Gibson
- Aug 4, 2017 - 10:02:00 AM
Statement by Hon. Philip Brave Davis:
I was appalled and outraged
at the way Shane Gibson, my former Cabinet Colleague, was dealt with by
the police today. It was obvious that the man was in physical pain. I am
advised that he is recently recovering from surgery. It appears that
none of this was taken into account as he was dragged to court, hobbling
this afternoon. In fact, he had crutches medically ordered because of
his condition and they were deliberately taken away by the police.
rights did not end upon his detention, arrest or having been charged.
It is the enjoyment of rights that preserve the dignity of human
existence. PLPs and others of goodwill are unsettled about what is
taking place and where this is taking this country...
