DNA: Where is our culture? - May 31, 2016 - 10:09:40 PM

Our Prime Minister in his 2016 budget communication admitted the burden of debt is unacceptably high. He said that growth in the United States, our major trading partner, is expected to be slightly more buoyant, expanding by 2.4% in 2016 and a further modest strengthening in 2017. These factors augur well for the expansion of our tourism sector.

Our question is: Why are we not tapping into our natural resources, in particular, our people, who can attract tourist and investors?” This government has not mentioned a clear vision or plan for culture moving forward as a country...

DNA: The Chinese are Coming! - May 31, 2016 - 4:31:53 PM

Brenda_Harris.jpg
The PM’s mid-year communication on the 2015/2016 Budget stated that the government’s medium-term fiscal plan is targeted and balanced, consisting of four equally vital components, namely: 1) restraining the growth of public expenditure; 2)modernizing and enhancing revenue administration; 3) securing new sources of revenue; and 4) growing the economy.

This Administration has fallen short on all four accounts.  However, we should be encouraged because our Prime Minister states that the positive outlook is “ that growth in the United States, our major trading partner, is expected to be slightly more buoyant, expanding by 2.4 per cent in 2016, with a further modest strengthening in 2017.” Unfortunately, there was no mention of the challenges that we face in our number one industry Tourism due to the US lifting the embargo on Cuba. Not to mention that we did not make the 2016 Traveler’s Choice...

FNM Responds to PM Christie's Comments Regarding the Leader of the Opposition - May 31, 2016 - 11:54:42 AM

The Free National Movement (FNM) issued the following statement in response to the Prime Minister’s latest "bizarre attack on Dr. Minnis":

“It is said that ‘facts are stubborn things’, and the Prime Minister continues to prove that his command of the facts are slippery at best. And in his drive to deflect attention away from the abysmal record of his Government, the Prime Minster has shown he is not above twisting and turning the facts to generate headlines and malign others.”

“The true fact is that Dr. Minnis has always believed that the upcoming referendum was an opportunity for the people of The Bahamas to weigh in on their future. He and the FNM trust the people – when empowered with the facts and armed..."

“FNM’s and the general public are advised that the Executive Committee of the Free National Movement will meet on Thursday, June 2, 2016, at Party Headquarters, Mackey Street.  The meeting will be followed immediately by a meeting of the Central Council which will review the decision regarding the holding of the Party's National Convention and establish a new date...

Roberts: D’Aguilar’s Baha Mar claims dishonest, baneful and unfounded - May 30, 2016 - 5:29:51 PM

Nassau, Bahamas - The following is a press statement by Bradley B. Roberts National Chairman Progressive Liberal Party:

Recent comments in the media and attributed to local businessman Dionisio D’Aguilar about the ongoing Baha Mar negotiations are irresponsible, inflammatory, baneful, unfounded and certainly do not advance the interests of the government and people of The Bahamas.

While the general tone and direction of the negotiations for the expeditious completion and opening of the stalled project may not be to the personal liking of Mr. D’Aguilar, it is unseemly for him to suggest that the Bahamas government is being bamboozled by the Chinese project investors...

Chairman Collie: The Prime Minister’s $2,000,000 Slush Fund - May 29, 2016 - 7:27:04 PM

Sidney Collie, Chairman of the Free National Movement (FNM), issued the following statement on the revelation that the Prime Minister’s budget included a $2 million slush fund:

“Time and time again, this Government has shown it doesn’t believe in transparency and oversight, and now in an election year the country is told that the Prime Minister has rewarded himself with a $2,000,000 slush fund. The previous fiscal year the fund stood at $29,000 – that’s right, $29,000. Now it’s $2,000,000 – a stunning increase of 6,000 percent!”

“What’s even more stunning is that the Prime Minister used less than $1,000 for the first nine months of the last fiscal year. So why the astronomical increase...

DNA: We Do Not Need Another PLP Budget - May 28, 2016 - 10:18:19 PM

The budget delivered in the House of Assembly today by the Prime Minister and Minister for Finance, Perry G. Christie, yet again earmarks nothing for alleviating pressures for every day Bahamians and certainly does not give us hope for the future. This slap-dash budget exemplifies confusion and mismanagement that one can seriously call lack of leadership, sincere oversight and over-shot projections.

During the mid-term budget presented in March of this year, the prime minister blamed a muted global economic recovery for his administration’s failures even though the American economy is stronger than ever, knowing full well a buoyant American economy means better for us...

DNA on the PLP’s proposed Mortgage Relief Programme - May 28, 2016 - 6:10:23 PM

We in the DNA are happy that the current administration has admitted their failures with regard to the initial mortgage relief programme and now is deciding to work with a new version of a Mortgage Relief Programme in the Prime Minister’s Budget Communication.

The fact of the matter is this issue has gone on too long; persons have been hurt and left ashamed due to losing their greatest investment; and long term damage has been done to lives and communities.

The details are still sketchy with regard to what this administration outlined in their budget communication in relation to their mortgage relief plan, which some are calling a Homeowner’s Protection Scheme, but we wish to weigh in on this because the DNA has presented an initial proposal for mortgage relief which we feel strongly that the government should take into consideration...

DNA Budget Analysis: Dissecting the Numbers - May 26, 2016 - 7:00:18 PM

The DNA has noticed a trend with this administration. The trend is that their previous year budget projections and promises do not line up with what they present at the end of year, and projects they speak about never materialize or initiated.
One stark case in point is with regard to the $100 million bond issuance for the Mortgage Corporation to build homes in the 2015 budget communication. Now, we are delighted to some degree by the failure of this by this administration, as there are a lot of homes in the country’s inventory currently that can be re-packaged to persons looking for a place to put their families. However, this this failure by this also shows, quite frankly, a lack of true understanding and deep analytical thinking on this administration’s part with regard to what they promised Bahamians and how and why they were to achieve this...

Dr. Minnis on "The Prime Minister’s Baha Mar Debacle" - May 26, 2016 - 5:09:27 PM

Once again the Prime Minister has failed to meet the expectations of the Bahamian people when he addressed the ongoing Baha Mar debacle in parliament yesterday. Sadly, the people have heard this all before. What we received was an overly optimistic claim that they were making progress on crafting a deal that would get Baha Mar back on track. The problem is that his address was void of details, and we all know that the devil is in the detail.

The Prime Minister's lack of transparency by hiding the details from the Bahamian people is not shocking because as the election draws nearer we all know that he and the rest of the PLP will do and say anything to get re- elected. In fact, the Prime Minister’s communication yesterday sounded a lot like their campaign plan in 2012. They are still promising to bring mortgage relief, which they have failed to do for four years. They promised to fix the NHI in 2012 and four years later they still promise that it is a priority but again gave no details...

FNM Ratifies Four Additional Candidates - May 24, 2016 - 2:38:43 PM

Sm-Four.jpg
The Free National Movement (FNM), during a special called meeting of its Central Council last evening, ratified four (4) candidates to be its standard bearers to contest New Providence and Family Island Constituencies in the upcoming general election.

Attorney Desmond Bannister was ratified to represent the FNM in the Carmichael Constituency. A community and political activist of long standing, Mr. Bannister represented the Carmichael Constituency from 2007 to 2012. He also served The Bahamas in the office of Minister for Education and Culture and as Leader of Opposition business in the Senate...

Dr. Minnis on Supporting the Baha Mar Employees - May 24, 2016 - 10:47:10 AM

Dr. Minnis, Leader of the Free National Movement (FNM), issued the following statement supporting the disenfranchised Baha Mar employees:

“Today, I am proud to stand with the disenfranchised employees of the Baha Mar. They are demanding that the Prime Minister answer their concerns and I echo their questions. These good people have had their lives completely turned upside down because of this government’s failures and inability to follow through.”

“As our country continues to wait for the 5,000 jobs we were promised, the PLP leaders have taken a hands off approach. They have failed to make any progress on getting the Baha Mar opened, changed their minds several times about who should be in charge of it, provided zero transparency in regards to the status of their negotiations and failed to keep the former employees up to speed...

Dr. Minnis on the Nearing PLP Budget Presentation - May 23, 2016 - 10:42:49 AM

Dr. Minnis, Leader of the Free National Movement (FNM), issued the following statement on the nearing PLP budget presentation:

“The annual budget presentation is upon us. What will this Government offer? A true path forward out of our country’s downward trajectory, or more of the same? Will the PLP serve up an election year budget rife with headline grabbing spending that our taxpayers cannot afford but will be forced to foot the bill when all is said and done? Or will this Government finally come to terms with their years of neglect and focus on enriching their friends, families and allies at the Bahamians expense...

Lanisha Rolle: The Need for Political Maturity rather than Political Mischief - May 22, 2016 - 6:54:30 PM

As with all Opposition Senate appointments, Opposition Senators serve under the Constitution of The Bahamas at the pleasure of the Governor General on the recommendation of the Leader of the Opposition for an appointed period.

Having girded myself with political maturity from the offset of my tenure, I at all times knew as do all Parliamentarians that my service as a Senator was for an appointed period which in cases of Senate Appointments carry the high probability of a shorter shell-life than those who sit in the Honorable House of Assembly under the protection of the electorate...

Sen. Alex Storr: Tribune Again on the Wrong Side of the Facts - May 22, 2016 - 3:58:50 PM

Enclosed is a statement from Chairman of the Bahamas Mortgage Corporation, Sen. Hon. Alex Storr refuting claims made by the Tribune concerning the audited financials of the Corporation:

Once again for the 2nd consecutive day, the Tribune and staff reporter, Rashad Rolle, has printed untruths concerning the Bahamas Mortgage Corporation and it's audits. Despite the fact that the correct information is easily obtained by calling the House of Assembly, the Tribune insists on publishing inaccurate and false information provided by persons with a political agenda furthering it's perceived philosophy of not letting the truth get in the way of a good story...

DNA: Even the Blind Man can See? (A Response to Bradley Roberts) - May 20, 2016 - 4:06:15 PM

As the possibility of an opposition coalition becomes more and more real, it appears that the initial fear that prompted the ridiculous comments from Shane Gibson has spread through the PLP like wildfire over the past 24 hours, prompting the party to enlist its weapons of mass propaganda in an effort to discredit the idea. Like Shane Gibson before him, Bradley Robert’s comments betray the fear, which the PLP is now experiencing at the mere thought of losing the 2017 general election.

That said, it was unsurprising to see that the party’s blustering chairman offer his comments on the idea. What is surprising however is the fact that a man well known for his absolutely outdated and myopic views is still allowed to weigh in on matters of national importance on behalf of the party. As I have said to Mr. Roberts before…HAVE SEVERAL SEATS!

Dr. Minnis on "Ministers Failing to Table Audits" - May 20, 2016 - 3:35:17 PM

Dr. Minnis, Leader of the Free National Movement (FNM), responded to today’s news regarding the failure of several PLP ministers to table audits of their institutions or agencies, issuing the following statement:

“This Government has shown a wanton disregard for transparency, accountability and the rule of law. So while disappointing, unfortunately it is not surprising that several institutions and agencies of this Government have repeatedly failed to table their annual financial audits as is required by law.”

“The law requiring annual audits of government expenditures is there so as to provide transparency and accountability from every level of government. But we can have neither, when this Government operates in the shadows and all but ignores the law...

Mitchell House Statement on a Question of Parliamentary Privilege‏ - May 20, 2016 - 3:34:42 PM

Nassau, Bahamas - Communication by Fred Mitchell MP on a Question of Privilege 18 May 2016 House of Assembly:

I rise on a point of privilege.

You will recall that when the House of Assembly met over the last few weeks, on each occasion I was out of the country on official business.  I spoke to you over the telephone giving you my clear and unqualified response to a purported injunction given ex parte by a Judge of the Supreme Court which was seeking to prevent two Members of Parliament from carrying out their constitutional functions in this House and in this country...
