“Dames Calls for strategic plan to address root causes of crime” - Nov 30, 2016 - 12:19:16 PM

Marvin_Dames.jpg
Former Deputy Commissioner of Police now FNM candidate for Mount Moriah, Marvin Dames said that to address the rise of violent crime in the country, there must be a strategic plan that addresses its root causes.

Appearing on the radio program, Darold Miller Live earlier this week, Mr Dames said the fight against crime should include three components; prevention and deterrence, enforcement and detection, and finally rehabilitation and reintegration. By focusing on these three components, Mr Dames believes we can significantly impact crime in our nation...

DNA Congratulates Newly Elected Haitian President - Nov 29, 2016 - 11:46:43 PM

The Democratic National Alliance extends sincere congratulations to Jovenel Moise who has won Haiti’s Presidential elections in the first round. Preliminary results show that Moise was elected by a majority vote of 55.97% ahead of his closest rival Jude Celestin.

Following an extended period of political unrest, the election of Moise as a businessman and political newcomer, is a testament to the growth of the country’s democracy and will hopefully represent a new era of prosperity for that country as well...

Dr. Minnis: PLP continuing to keep the Baha Mar deal details secret - Nov 29, 2016 - 10:15:32 AM

Dr. Minnis, Leader of the Free National Movement (FNM), issued the following statement, "PLP Government continuing to keep the Baha Mar deal details secret":

“It has been a month since Prime Minister Christie told us that he would ‘soon’ unveil more details on the secret buyer of Baha Mar, and the Bahamian people are still waiting. Minister Obie Wilchcombe over the week-end announced that a prospective buyer has submitted their proposal to buy the resort. The Prime Minister must now immediately explain to the Bahamian people how this buyer was selected and what concessions were given...

DNA Releases White Paper on Public Service Reform - Nov 28, 2016 - 4:25:53 PM

small_45.jpg
It is without question that a fully functioning, organized, progressive and rewarding career should be afforded to every citizen of The Commonwealth of The Bahamas. This most certainly includes persons that are employed with the Public Service, because their efforts on behalf of the majority of us as citizens is vital to our country’s growth, stability and national wellbeing.

We in the DNA wish to first and foremost say thank you to the hard-working people that make up the Public Service, inclusive of contractual workers, permanent and pensionable workers and contractors that do work for our country in large and substantial ways...

Fitzgerald responds to Black Friday March - Nov 27, 2016 - 8:44:23 PM

As many of you know, an invitation was extended to members of the Government by the organizers to attend the march on Friday past and while the acceptance of this invitation was met with accusation of event hijacking by the organizers and the subsequent directive to the attendees to turn their backs on us, my individual decision to participate was based on my love and commitment for our great country.

Like all Bahamians, I want a better and stronger Bahamas. This is why I have been committed to public service through front line politics for the past 9 ½ years – to advocate for Bahamians at large, and bring about change for a modern and prosperous nation, where we as a people make the effort to work together on nation-building and collaboratively address the challenges facing our country.

PLP urges Black Friday organizers to meet with Prime Minister - Nov 27, 2016 - 8:23:18 PM

Earlier this afternoon I was asked by a member of the Press to comment on the march this past Friday, my response was that I had no comment as I was confuse over the conflicting messages that were been sent; no politicians were to participate etc. but notwithstanding wish to comment:

On behalf of the PLP, I thank the organizers for their letter to the government, for exercising their democratic rights and freedom of expression and in so doing, present a further opportunity for constructive engagement and honest dialogue with the government on its going programs, policy initiatives and legislative agenda...

Bannister: Convicted Drug Dealers Not Welcome in Carmichael - Nov 27, 2016 - 3:51:59 PM

For the past several weeks I have been inundated by complaints from the Carmichael community that convicted drug dealer Carlos Lamm and other disreputable persons have been canvassing in the Carmichael Constituency with The Hon. Keith Bell, Minister of State for National Security.  Constituents complain that Mr. Lamm has been visiting their homes to introduce the Minister.  

This actions of Minister Bell in canvassing with a convicted drug dealer and other persons of questionable character is a grave disservice to the law abiding members of the Carmichael community.  It is also a betrayal of his sacred Oath of office to the Bahamian people...

A Celebration of Bahamian Women - Nov 25, 2016 - 11:48:24 AM

The Bahamas as a nation and as a people have a rich culture and history. One which we are all immensely proud of. Our country’s founding fathers worked tirelessly to ensure that the Bahamian dream could be realized by our generation and those to come. That dream was further underpinned by our country’s founding mothers as well. Brave women who in their various ways worked in tandem and often in the background to ensure that the objectives of a free and democratic Bahamas could be realized.

Our history is filled with the examples left by women such as Dame Doris Johnson, Dame Ivy Dumont, Janet Bostwick, Maybel Walker and countless others. Women who not only talked the talk of women’s rights and equality but also walked the walk. As a result of their efforts we, the women of...

Dr. Minnis: PLP Government’s Discovery of Transparency and Accountability - Nov 24, 2016 - 6:27:47 PM

Nassau, Bahamas - Dr. Minnis, Leader of the Free National Movement (FNM), issued the following statement:

“After nearly five long years in power, with his political support vanishing and his back against the wall as his government staggers from scandal after scandal, Prime Minister Christie has finally discovered accountability and transparency. They have decided to look back six years for it, not over the past four and a half years of their Government. It was not the growing scandal of the land and fisheries giveaway to the Chinese, nor the blow back from his secret deals with his Chinese allies on Baha Mar, the Bank of The Bahamas, BAMSI, the interference with the Magistrate and Urban Renewal, or the fact the FNM has long called for transparency and accountability reforms that caused this revelation. No, this enlightened revelation is coming because it is the political season and he wants to distract Bahamians from their current problems...”

Roberts: Dr. Minnis' Courting of Izmirlian and Symonette Spells Disaster for The Bahamas - Nov 24, 2016 - 3:00:15 PM


From Dr. Hubert Minnis’ public courting of Brent Symonette to return to front line politics, Bahamians must be wondering why Minnis is seeking to reassemble the “Stop, Cancel and Review” team which brought this country to its economic knees, ultimately placing it in a wheel chair.

The emergence of the disgruntled Sarkis Izmarlin and his loyalists who were conveniently parachuted into the leadership of the FNM by an act of fascism by Dr. Minnis creates a toxic mix that can only spell dire economic straits and ultimate collapse of the Bahamian economy under an FNM government...

Dr Minnis Renews Call for Minister Gray to be Fired - Nov 23, 2016 - 6:32:39 PM

Dr. Minnis, Leader of the Free National Movement (FNM), renewed his call for Minister Gray’s firing following the Prime Minister’s comments in Parliament:

“The embattled Prime Minister has finally broken his silence on the secret proposal to give away 20,000 acres of Crown land and our fishing rights to the Chinese Government and this is not good news for Minister Gray nor the Bahamian people.  On Monday, Prime Minister Christie said, in front of Minister Gray, that his Cabinet has not approved the proposal that Minister Gray signed off on.  This begs the questions – how could the embattled Prime Minister not know of such an ill-advised and ill-conceived proposal that was being conducted by his own Minister...

McCartney: The Deal is Still Sealed - Nov 23, 2016 - 4:17:47 PM

Today marks eight days since the Democratic National Alliance has called upon this PLP Government to come clean before the Bahamian people about its secret deal on Baha Mar, and their attempt to sell the resort to a company with deep rooted connections to organized crime.

One would have thought that with their election pledge of being a Government of transparency and accountability that the Bahamian people would have had the courtesy of a response. Instead, we have been met with a Great Wall of silence. This is not indicative of a Government that believes in democracy and the rule of law. This my friends, is the action of a totalitarian, communist style administration that is clearly not interested in governing for you, the Bahamian people...

Dr. Minnis’ on the "Continued Lack of Response to Crime by the PLP" - Nov 23, 2016 - 11:12:28 AM

“Robberies, shootings and tragically two more murders. Another weekend; another rash of crime rampaging through our communities. In 2012 the PLP promised that their leadership would lower the crime rate, primarily by the reintroduction of “Urban renewal 2.0”, yet under their Government “Urban Renewal 2.0” has been a colossal failure; a pit of corruption, misfeasance and wasted money; and the murder rate has hit record highs year after year. Under PLP leadership, crime has gotten markedly worse and is infecting every neighbourhood and community. Yet this Government insists things today are not as bad as last year’s record setting murder rate, and blames Bahamians for not seeing it their way..."

Peter Turnquest on Grand Bahama Schools post Hurricane Matthew - Nov 18, 2016 - 4:07:44 PM

Peter Turnquest, Deputy Leader of the Free National Movement (FNM) and MP for East Grand Bahama, issued the following statement:

“The lack of action from the PLP Government, specifically Ministers Darville, Gibson, and Fitzgerald, towards the schools and students in Grand Bahama has been despicable following Hurricane Matthew. Repairs on schools have not been started and the blame is placed at the feet of generous donors. Lunch programs are in jeopardy due to a lack of payment since the beginning of the school year. Our children and their future are our most precious commodity and the PLP Government does not seem to care about them and their wellbeing.”

Bahamaland – My Piece of the Rock - Nov 18, 2016 - 12:03:29 AM

“This land is my land, this land is your land. From Grand Bahama down to Inagua. From the Berry Islands across to Mayaguana. This land is made for you and me.” These words from a popular Bahamian folk song come to mind when I think of my Bahamaland.

I am prompted to write this article after the controversy over the Chinese agriculture and fishing proposal. It involved making available 10,000 acres of crown land in Andros with another 10,000 acres to follow. With its fresh water lenses and good farming soil, Andros has the capacity to not only feed The Bahamas, but be a major source of food export. The proposal also called for deep sea fishing in one of the most fertile fishing grounds on earth...

Sidney Collie on "Minister Gray’s Continued Defence of Andros Deal" - Nov 17, 2016 - 9:11:34 AM

Sidney Collie, Chairman of the Free National Movement (FNM), issued the following statement on Minister Gray’s continued defence of a secret proposal to give away Crown land and our fishing rights to the Chinese Government:

“The one thing we can all say about Minister Gray is that he is ‘consistent’. He has consistently ignored the will of the Bahamian people who have joined us in protest against his ill-advised and ill-conceived proposal to secretly give away 20,000 acres of our land and our fishing rights to the PLP’s Chinese allies. He’s consistent in his child-like efforts to put forward the PLP’s worn out playbook of sideshow distractions as he ignores the people’s outcry...

Dr. Minnis' “theft of our birthright” comment unclear - Nov 16, 2016 - 1:01:09 PM


FNM Leader Dr. Hubert Minnis on Wednesday renewed his call for PM Perry Christie to reveal whether he supports the proposed $2.1 billion agri-fisheries venture with Chinese investors, as he said Mr. Christie’s “stony silence” may very well “go forward with this theft of our birthright.” Dr. Minnis is on record as calling this proposed investment initiative secret and lacks transparency.

He was speaking at the ratification ceremony at the FNM Headquarters.

It is important to note that all of the genesis, the facts and the documentation surrounding this investment initiative are all a matter of public record. The announcement of the $35 billion fund earmarked for CARICOM by the President of the Peoples Republic of China is a matter of public record; the announcement was made four years ago in Trinidad and Tobago during the CARICOM-CHINA Summit...

Dr. Minnis on "Possible Implications of the Secret Fisheries Proposal" - Nov 16, 2016 - 10:29:19 AM

Dr. Minnis, Leader of the Free National Movement (FNM), issued the following statement on the possible implications of secret fisheries proposal with the People’s Republic of China:

“How can anyone proclaim to have the best interest of Bahamians at heart when one allows our Ambassador to China, under the directions of Minister Alfred Gray, to negotiate away 20,000 acres of Crown land and our farming and fishing rights? These actions are outrageous and an affront to the good people of The Bahamas who are more than capable of farming and fishing our lands and waters...

McCartney: No More Country For Sale - Nov 15, 2016 - 4:07:33 PM

The Democratic National Alliance is calling on the Government of the Bahamas to explain to the Bahamian people whether or not this administration has done its due diligence on the company that is reportedly in talks to purchase Baha Mar.

Chow Tai Fook was touted as a highly qualified party to purchase this resort from Perfect Luck, however since then the company has already had to distance itself from its own track record as concerns of its deep rooted relationships to elements of organized crime continue to come to light...
