Dr. Minnis Statement on the PLP Minister Calling Rising Crime Rates “Progress” - Apr 28, 2016 - 5:00:05 PM

Dr. Hubert Minnis, Leader of the Free National Movement (FNM), issued the following statement on the rising murder rate in The Bahamas.

“For a member of either party to categorize the rising crime rates as ‘progress’ is either deliberate ignorance or wilful misrepresentation. Last year was the worst year in the Bahamas ’history and our crime problem isn’t getting any better. The people deserve better.” stated Dr. Minnis.

2015 brought the most deadly year The Bahamas has ever seen and a 22% increase from 2014 in the murder rate. One hundred and twenty-eight people were killed on our streets, which meant The Bahamas’ had a higher murder rate per capita than New York City...

DNA: Auditor General’s Report on Social Services Spending Unacceptable - Apr 28, 2016 - 4:12:27 PM

The Democratic National Alliance read with great distress the level of apparent malfeasance within the Ministry of Social Services. The Auditor General’s report not only detailed the fraudulent scheme surrounding the improper use and wasteful management of pre-printed food coupons, but further pointed to deficiencies in record and document management practices as well as a lack of checks and balances to ensure the proper authorization for monies paid to vendors.

Sadly, these allegations are not new and certainly not surprising as anecdotal evidence has long suggested major leakages and abuses of the system within the department. The Minister’s non-chalant and near apathetic response to media questions about the report are further proof that the government is all too aware of the challenges within the Ministry...

Minnis Reiterates Call for MPs to Fully Disclose BOB Loans - Apr 27, 2016 - 5:21:21 PM

Dr. Hubert Minnis, Leader of the Free National Movement (FNM), issued the following statement, reiterating his call for all MP’s to publicly disclose if they have ever received any secured or unsecured loans from the Bank of the Bahamas. Currently, none of the members of the Government party have stepped forward to let the public know. This comes on the heels of news reports stating that many PLP Members of Parliament, including most ministers and their leadership, have yet to file their required financial disclosures.

“This is a very simple question that Bahamians deserve an answer to”

FNM: "PLP Chairman doesn’t think we know what corruption looks like" - Apr 25, 2016 - 7:18:17 PM

“Sadly, I and every hard working citizen of The Bahamas are experts on being victimized by the corruption of the PLP. Leslie Miller defined his parties’ leadership perfectly when he said, “we only help those that help us.” -- FNM Chairman Sidney Collie.

What did Leslie Miller Say:

“You help those who help you.” – Leslie Miller, The Tribune, April 18, 2016

Roberts, "Hubert Minnis, both The Joker and The Riddler" - Apr 25, 2016 - 10:32:20 AM


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

Judging from the latest statement from Dr. Hubert Minnis, the Leader of the Opposition concerning Government contracts, Dr. Minnis could very easily fit into the any role in the Batman series as The Joker and The Riddler.

The Joker in Dr. Minnis would have left him indifferent and blind to the pungent odor of the toxic stench that is now being emanating out of the FNM Cabinet/BEC Board scandal and being played out not by the trumpet of the PLP, but by the Bahamas Supreme Court. The stench of corruption where a former FNM Senator stands charged in a “pay-for-play” international bribery is totally lost of Dr. Hubert “Joker” Minnis...

Opposition Leader renews his call for Greater Transparency and Good Government - Apr 24, 2016 - 6:48:28 PM

In the wake of revelations of the financial mismanagement of the Bank of The Bahamas’ and senior PLP officials admitting to pay-to-play tactics in all their governmental dealings, Leader of the opposition Dr. Hubert Minnis renewed his call for greater transparency and good government as parliament reconvenes.

“As the House of Parliament returns to session this week, it is imperative that the Bahamian people know that at least one party is going to stand up for them. The people demand accountability from their Government,” said Dr. Minnis.  “This week we will consider very important legislation regarding our airports and the Family Islands. These bills are key pieces of legislation for the future development of our country and, therefore, deserve serious consideration. However, we are concerned...

PLP Chairman responds to Greg Moss MP on referendum bills - Apr 22, 2016 - 12:50:37 PM

Greg Moss MP has gone overboard from the sublime to the ridiculous. Mr. Moss claims that there is an improper motive by MPs to pass the bills to amend the constitution and in particular bill number four (4).

Greg Moss cannot speak for any Member of Parliament except himself. It is well known that he who shouts the loudest on sexuality may have issues themselves with which they have to deal. If so he must seek the appropriate help but not project his insecurities on others.

Mr. Moss should recall that these bills originated with the Constitutional Commission, not with MP's or the government or the opposition.

Further, the bills had the direct involvement of the Church through extensive consultation.

Mr. Moss insults the intelligence of all Members of Parliament with...

The National General Council (NGC) of the Progressive Liberal (PLP) ratified Yamacraw MP and Social Services and Community Development Minister the Hon. Melanie Griffin and former Fort Charlotte MP and cabinet Minister, Alfred M Sears at its monthly meeting on Thursday, 21stAril 2016.

This is the culmination of a democratic process pursuant, inter alia, to Article 17 of the party’s constitution with the full participation and blessings of the respective constituencies.

DNA: Millions Wasted on Failed Waste Management Plans! - Apr 21, 2016 - 3:15:53 PM

For the past many years, the communities regularly blanketed by thick black smoke accompanied by the smell of noxious fumes emanating from the New Providence landfill have received no definitive response from this government regarding its plans to address long standing issues at that site. For years, successive governments have continued to ignore local and international research which has proven that the burning of waste at landfills produces air toxins such as carbon monoxide (CO) and oxides of sulfur and nitrogen as well as liberate metals including antimony, arsenic, barium, beryllium, cadmium, chromium, lead, manganese, mercury, phosphorus and titanium. These toxins have been linked to respiratory issues, heartbeat irregularities and irritation to eyes nose and throat in the short term as well as liver disease, kidney disease and even cancer in the long term. After years of waiting, watching, agitating and hoping however, Bahamians have been met with inaction and most recently accusations of being unpatriotic...

Roberts: More questions for Sidney Collie - Apr 21, 2016 - 9:51:14 AM

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

Since Sidney Collie is presenting himself as the self-proclaimed expert on corruption and scandal, I have a few more questions for him.

I am sure Mr. Collie is fully aware of any number of padded and secret contracts the FNM government awarded to party officers in the run up to the leader elect race of 2001. A contractor paid for the victory party...

Sidney Collie, "PLP Corruption: Bank of The Bahamas" - Apr 20, 2016 - 11:27:20 PM

“The PLP continues to shock me with the lows that they will reach when it comes to lining their own pockets. They are willing to sell their party to an eccentric foreign billionaire, give government contracts to their friends and family and appoint those same friends and family to oversee and run the Bank of The Bahamas. The same bank that required a $100 million bailout not that long ago. We need to elect people that will work” – FNM Chairman Sidney Collie

FNM Chairman responds to Bradley Roberts - Apr 20, 2016 - 2:43:30 PM

“This is not a fight between the PLP and me; this is a fight between right and wrong and the PLP has proven time and time again that they are on the wrong side-more interested in enriching themselves than standing up for the people,” said FNM Chairman Sidney Collie.

Collie noted the following questions that the the PLP Still Refuses to Answer:

1. How can the people expect the Government to be working on their behalf when MP Leslie Miller proved that they put their supporters and members above the people – telling us, “you help those who help you” when referring to awarding lucrative government contracts...

DNA: PLP an international acknowledged corrupt government - Apr 20, 2016 - 2:34:48 PM

If the recent comments of Tall Pines MP Leslie Miller regarding the United States’ assessment of the government’s procurement process is a reflection of the thinking of this PLP administration, then we are in more trouble than any of us could have ever imagined. But, we as a people really should not be all that surprised. It was indeed the Deputy Prime Minister of this country that intimated a few months back that politicians should be paid more money so they don’t steal. And even recently it was Loftus Roker, a former PLP Minister who spoke about the corrupt politicians of today...

FNM "questions whether Renew Bahamas Limited is facing economic challenges due to Government’s payment delays" - Apr 20, 2016 - 2:32:37 PM

This week many local service providers of Renew Bahamas Limited (Renew), the contractor overseeing the New Providence Landfill, received emails informing them in part of the following; 

”….we can make an interim payment today on this invoice, with another one to follow as soon as we get resolution from the government.  Please know that we are not in a position to settle in full today, this is the case across all our suppliers, while we wait for the government.”

DNA: S&P Analysis does not mean great news! - Apr 20, 2016 - 1:45:00 PM

Standards and Poor’s (S&P) issued an analysis of the state of the Bahamian economy on Friday of last week. The news just hit the media over the last few days for us to be alerted to its publishing.

Of course, the non-downgrade- even though the analysis was off-cycle for The Bahamas, because our true assessment cycles for S&P are typically between August to September every year- is nothing to be thrilled about. While we in the DNA are pleased that this current administration is not doing more damage, or apparently doing enough public relations to please some outsiders that they are not inflicting more damage to the Bahamian Treasury...

Dr. Minnis calls for an immediate forensic audit & full disclosure by MPs - Apr 19, 2016 - 10:09:57 PM

In the wake of Bank of The Bahamas’s 2015 Annual Report and its announcement of ongoing financial troubles, Dr. Hubert Minnis, Leader of the Free National Movement (FNM), is calling for immediate action.  The Bank’s chairman who admitted, “that political considerations influenced lending decisions,” especially troubled Dr. Minnis.  He said the first steps to restoring confidence and credibility in the Bank’s operations are a thorough forensic audit and full disclosure by all Members of Parliament of any secured or unsecured loans they have received from the financially troubled bank.

“When will our Government learn?  The signs weren’t hard to read - the Bank of The Bahamas has reported over $100 million in losses since the PLP returned to office in 2012.  Now the chairman is publicly acknowledging that political influence is behind some of BOB’s lending decisions,” decried Dr. Minnis.

FNM: Concerned about inaccurate press reports regarding national chairman election - Apr 19, 2016 - 12:10:47 AM

The Free National Movement is deeply concerned about persistent inaccurate Press Reports regarding our Special-Called Central Council Meeting last Thursday, 14th April, 2016 when Mr. Sidney Collie was elected as our new National Chairman.

It has been inaccurately reported in the media on couple occasions that in excess of 100 and as much as 150 persons who were eligible to vote last Thursday did not or might not have voted, that is plainly not so!

We want the entire record to be clear. It is true, as reported that, in total 117 Central Council Members voted...

"PLP MP Admits to Endemic Corruption," says FNM - Apr 18, 2016 - 6:06:37 PM

For the second time in as many months Progressive Liberal Party (PLP) leadership has once again embraced corruption in awarding government contracts.  It was only two years ago PM Perry Christie used a March 20th speech to denounce corruption, saying:

“There is no denying that systemic corruption…undermines good governance and the rule of law; accelerates moral decay; fosters negative international perceptions of the country; stymies foreign investment...

Statement by Bradley B. Roberts National Chairman Progressive Liberal Party on 17th April 2016:

Before Mr. Collie starts throwing his self-righteous stones, I must quickly remind him that it was in fact the handiwork of Bobo and Toggie, two criminal ‘gangsters’ who are primarily responsible for his chairmanship today. These criminal gangsters worked with his successor Michael Pintard, caused his political demise and in so doing created the opportunity for Collie’s political return and ignoble rise to the chairmanship of the FNM...

Youri Kemp: Looking forward to working in Garden Hills! - Apr 17, 2016 - 10:12:00 PM

Since I was announced on Monday, 11th April as the Candidate for the Democratic National Alliance for the constituency of Garden Hills it has been nothing short of a Category 5 Hurricane of well-wishers, phone callers and unsolicited visits along with calls to appear at places where you normally would have some particular reason to be there. All of this in just the first week!

Needless to say, I would like to thank the DNA for allowing me a chance to be their candidate for the constituency of Garden Hills. I could not have picked a better, more vibrant, motivated and ready for change environment than Garden Hills. Most importantly, I want to also send a special, heart-felt thank you to my executive team members in Garden Hills...
