FNM Chairmen's statement on PM's eagerness for another term - Jan 17, 2017 - 12:59:50 PM

Sidney Collie, Chairman of the Free National Movement (FNM), issued the following statement on the embattled Prime Minister stating he is eager for another term:
 
“The embattled Prime Minister may be eager for another term, but the Bahamian people are not.  He may think that he has done an excellent job for the Bahamian people, but they know that the PLP Government has been more concerned about taking care of their foreign allies and political supporters than the Bahamian people.  Their record stands for itself – junk bond status, endemic unemployment, and rising crime, which has led other countries to issue travel warnings, scandals, secret deals, and continued mismanagement and failures...

An Open Letter to the Prime Minister - Jan 16, 2017 - 9:40:23 AM

Dear Mr. Prime Minister:

I am not often one to get into public political commentary or debate but my heart is heavy.  As someone who has watched your political career over the past 40 years, and witnessing where we are today I could not resist re-reading George Orwell’s novel “Animal Farm”.  In fact as I watch your actions and those of your most ardent supporters the words of Mr. Orwell in another forum seems to ring true, “Power is not a means, it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship.”

Your reaction and those of your goons and cronies to Mr. Alfred Sears and his offering for the leadership of the PLP is very off-putting and smacks of a serious abuse of power...

Sidney Collie: PLP Running on Their Failed Policies - Jan 15, 2017 - 9:45:56 PM

Sidney Collie, Chairman of the Free National Movement (FNM), issued the following statement, "PLP announcing that they will run on their failed policies:"
 
“As the opposition we challenge this Government to run on its record as they are suggesting.  Their four and half years have been an unmitigated disaster for the Bahamian people.  Junk bond status, endemic unemployment, rising crime which has led other countries to issue travel warnings, scandals, secret deals and continued mismanagement and failures...

“Our teachers deserve the best we have to offer," says Jeffrey Lloyd - Jan 15, 2017 - 7:48:29 PM

Jeffrey-Lloyd_1.jpg
Free National Movement (FNM) South Beach candidate Jeffrey Lloyd proposed that a reform of the country’s education system must begin with restoring the honour and value with which teachers were once revered in this society.

This, he said, should include amongst other things, adequate compensation, respect, and the overall treatment they receive.

Lloyd, who retired from his 42-year media and talk show career last Friday, January 13, 2017, told a radio audience, while appearing as a guest on Carlton Smith...

DNA Southern Shores candidate, Ethric Bowe resigns - Jan 13, 2017 - 1:28:27 PM

ethric-Bowe.jpg
The Democratic National Alliance has accepted the resignation of Ethric Bowe as the candidate for Southern Shores who has regrettably made the decision not to run in the upcoming general election for personal reasons.

As a candidate, and a nationalist, Ethric has proven himself an asset to the organization. He has made invaluable contributions to the party and our plans for the Bahamian people. His input and insights have been a tremendous resource to the DNA and have been greatly appreciated.

PLP congratulates gov't on landmark airspace agreement - Jan 13, 2017 - 9:05:00 AM


The Progressive Liberal Party congratulates the Christie administration on the successful negotiation of a landmark and historic airspace management agreement announced on Wednesday, 11 January 2017.

It is fitting that such an agreement would be concluded so near to Majority Rule celebrations as the implications of this agreement with the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) strike at the very foundational principle of self-determination, sovereignty and the identity of the national identity of the Bahamian people. These are principles the PLP holds near and dear and have fought tirelessly for as we continue to build a more perfect commonwealth...

Gadville McDonald on Cat Island and the PLP Government - Jan 12, 2017 - 11:49:51 AM

Gadville McDonald, Cat Island, Rum Cay and San Salvador Candidate for the Free National Movement (FNM), issued the following statement titled, Cat Island needing results not excuses from the PLP Government:
 
“It has been with much concern that we witness the mass confusion and disorganization of this inept PLP Government that has continued to constantly hurt our Family Islands. Just last week, the Minister of Transport faced the cries of business houses in Cat Island that essential services are not being provided in a timely manner due to the failures of mailboat system.

Minnis: Prime Minister remains suspiciously quiet on the details of the secret Baha Mar deal - Jan 11, 2017 - 5:02:23 PM

Dr. Minnis, Leader of the Free National Movement (FNM), issued the following statement on the Baha Mar deal:


“For months Bahamians listened as the embattled Prime Minister repeatedly promised that he would soon reveal details on the secret Baha Mar deal. Yet, the courts still shield his deal in secrecy as the details drip out slowly to the public. Now Bahamians are learning that his Government has exempted his Chinese allies working on the project from the onerous VAT, yet the Prime Minister remains suspiciously quiet on the details of the secret Baha Mar deal that he struck with his Chinese allies. If the Prime Minister was really in favour of transparency and accountability as he claims, he would immediately release all details related to the secret deal instead of remaining silent...”

FNM: Fishing Hole anotherreminder of PLP’s broken promises and last minute flam - Jan 11, 2017 - 1:12:11 PM

Nassau, Bahamas - K. Peter Turnquest, Deputy Leader of the Free National Movement (FNM) and MP for East Grand Bahama, issued the following statement titled, Fishing Hole being another reminder of the PLP’s broken promises and last minute flam:
 
“Signs of tidal flooding at the Fishing Hole Road this past weekend is yet another reminder of the many broken promises made by the Progressive Liberal Party during the 2012 General Elections Campaign.  Then Official Opposition Leader, now Prime Minister Christie, stated that construction of a bridge would commence within the first 100 days of his Government, if elected.  The PLP won the elections and more than four and a half years later, the excuses continue to grow...

Sidney Collie, Chairman of the Free National Movement (FNM), issued the following statement on Minister Fitzgerald and the Baha Mar deal:
 
“‘Miniscule as far as we were concerned.’  That is the PLP Government’s statement as to why they have exempted their Chinese allies from the onerous VAT that Bahamians are forced to pay every day.  ‘Miniscule amount… neither here nor there’ is how Minister Fitzgerald shrugged off this Government’s secret decision on waving the VAT for the Baha Mar project...

DNA: Your Vote - Your Voice - Jan 5, 2017 - 10:10:42 AM

In just a few months, Bahamians will once again head to the polls to cast their ballots for the political organization that will govern our archipelago for the next five years. Unlike elections before it however, the 2017 general election is arguably the most critical in our country’s modern history. We must NOT look to be bought for votes, but we must look to receive the gift of prosperity, gift of opportunity and gift of empowerment.

Over the past 25 years the dream once held by our founding fathers has been tarnished. Our once vibrant economy has seen steady decline, while unemployment figures, the national debt, the country’s tax burden and the crime rate have all exploded exponentially. If we continue to be downgraded as we have been four times in the past 4 years, we run a greater risk of our dollar becoming devalued...

National Address by FNM Leader, the Hon. Dr. Hubert A. Minnis - Jan 4, 2017 - 10:15:04 PM

My Fellow Bahamians, I want to begin this evening by expressing my sincere wish that this New Year will bring only the best for you, for your families and for our Bahamas.

There is no question that though it is behind us, 2016 has been one of the worst years in our history in terms of the myriad of problems that our nation faced.
Disasters, natural and man-made, impacted Bahamians of every race, age and soci-economic status.  But, we are a resilient people, and we are still standing...

Sidney Collie on PLP Government and the Family Islands - Jan 4, 2017 - 4:20:44 PM

Sidney Collie, Chairman of the Free National Movement (FNM), issued the following statement:

A government’s job is to serve the people – ALL the people. The Family Islands’ needs and challenges are just as important as the rest of the country. True leaders understand this and keep focused on every part of the country. Unfortunately, that is not the case with this PLP Government, and with the embattled Prime Minister himself finally admitting publicly what many families – especially in the Family Islands – have known for years: his PLP Government has not paid as much attention to the developments on the Family Islands...

United People’s Movement Statement Regarding Bahamas’ UN Vote on Appointment of an Independent Expert on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity January 2nd, 2017:

The United People’s Movement (UPM) condemns to the uttermost the affirmative vote of The Bahamas at the United Nations General Assembly on 19th December, 2016 to support the appointment of an Independent Expert on protection against violence and discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. While the laws and customs of The Bahamas clearly support the protection of persons against unlawful violence...

FNM Chairman: Government Voter Disenfranchisement - Dec 30, 2016 - 5:31:08 PM

Nassau, Bahamas - Sidney Collie, Chairman of the Free National Movement (FNM), issued the following statement on voters being turned away from registering to vote:

“Today’s revelation that Bahamians are being turned away and disenfranchised from registering to vote is disgraceful. The fact that women are being turned away because of how they are dressed is unethical and very possibly illegal.

This is disturbing and the Government owes this country and the women being disenfranchised an apology. We call on Perry Christie and his government to clearly apologize at once and publically address how they plan to fix this issue..."

The Bahamas Road to Majority Rule and Independence - Dec 30, 2016 - 4:55:59 PM

sm-PINDLING_FIRST_CABINET_1.jpg
As a former colony of Great Britain, The Bahamas’ attainment of independence on July 10, 1973, was relatively late when compared to some of its sister islands in the Caribbean that were also British colonies.

Jamaica, for example, after a failed attempt to establish a European Union-style West Indian Federation with Trinidad and Tobago and Barbados, became an independent country on August 6, 1962; Trinidad and Tobago followed on August 31, 1962; and Barbados severed its colonial “navel string” from Great Britain on November 30, 1966...

Sidney Collie: PLP Hiding from their Horrible 2016 - Dec 30, 2016 - 3:00:25 PM

Nassau, Bahamas - Sidney Collie, Chairman of the Free National Movement (FNM), issued the following statement:

“How does one know that the embattled Prime Minister and his PLP Government are ending 2016 in a downward spiral? They send out their ‘Delusional’ Chairman, Bradley Roberts, to defend them. The typically insulting and nonsensical statements that we’ve come to expect soon follow. But the side-show antics and desire to distract the Bahamian people fail to address the central challenges facing our country. It’s time for this PLP Government to face facts. The Bahamian people see right through their talk and see that they have continued to fail them in 2016.
