Dr. Minnis: PM Christie's Handling of the Secret Baha Mar Deal - Aug 29, 2016 - 12:37:30 AM

On Monday evening, August 22, when we heard that the Prime Minister was holding a press conference to announce that the Government had struck a deal to restart construction of the Baha Mar Resort I like many of you became hopeful that we would finally hear the details of a deal that would see Bahamians get back to work immediately. However, we were sorely disappointed.

The Prime Minister went at great lengths to tell us what the Chinese was giving up but failed to tell us what he was committing the Bahamian people to give up in return.

To our dismay and our condemnation we learned that The Prime Minister has taken the unprecedented and undemocratic step to keep the details shrouded in secrecy...

Andrew Wilson DNA: "The Truth is not in Him!" - Aug 28, 2016 - 5:52:47 PM

Over the course of this political term in office the PLP has proven time and time again that their allegiance is not to the Bahamian people. In fact, every action, transaction and policy position taken by this government has uncovered linkages to special interest groups, past political donors, cronies and concubines; while countless media reports have uncovered the great lengths to which government officials have gone to protect themselves and their interests even at the expense of the people they swore to BELIEVE in! One such example was the controversial signing of a letter of intent by former Parliamentary Secretary Renward Wells. More than two years ago, Wells illegally signed and was eventually terminated over a proposed waste to energy deal valued at some $600 million dollars. At the time of the incident, Mr. Christie’s response to the entire controversy was simply to avoid talking about it at all.

To our dismay and our condemnation we learned that The Prime Minister has taken the unprecedented and undemocratic step to keep the details shrouded in secrecy from the people by asking the courts to seal all of the documents involved in this agreement.

Dr. Minnis: Prime Minister Defending His Secret Baha Mar Deal - Aug 26, 2016 - 4:00:07 PM

Dr. Minnis, Leader of the Free National Movement (FNM), issued the following statement on the Prime Minister defending the secret deal he made with the Chinese regarding Baha Mar:

“The Prime Minister has been in Parliament so long that he must think that he can now define words so that they can benefit him.  On Thursday, the Prime Minister claimed that there is no secrecy in the Baha Mar deal yet he had the courts seal the documents related to the deal so that Bahamians could not see them. That is right; he thinks that sealing documents does not make them secret.  Let me remind him that the Merriam-Webster Dictionary definition of secret is ‘kept from knowledge or view’...

Roberts: "D’Aguilar and the entire board of Baha Mar may be liable to a law suit" - Aug 25, 2016 - 10:49:46 PM

Chairman Smith, it’s always a pleasure to address your very active Golden Isles branch. I wish to warmly congratulate your branch for the massive turn out in support of the candidacy of your MP and Champion Michael Halkitis on the occasion of his re-nomination and ratification at the Lynden Pindling Center.

I again salute Minister Halkitis on defeating Frank Watson and sending him into political retirement where he is now a constant thorn in the side of the challenged Leader of the Opposition, Dr. Hubert Minnis. I am very impressed with the home visiting program with your teams in Golden Isles...

Terneille Burrows: No More Blind Trust in Government. Unseal the Deal. - Aug 25, 2016 - 9:22:29 PM

terneille-burrows-Eduardo-Jimenez.jpg
While the Attorney General admonishes Bahamians to trust the Prime Minister in regards to the details of the latest Baha Mar agreement, I say that the citizenry should mobilize every tool available to us to demand the information be revealed. The billion-dollar question is whether the electorate agrees.

According to the July 2015 winding up petition initiated by the Bahamas government and filed against Baha Mar, "The government of The Bahamas and its entities have provided an estimated $1.2 billion worth of concessions to the respondents to facilitate the development."Since the current (and previous) government administration of The Bahamas sought fit to grant such generous allowances to this development over the years, will we the people demand transparency to be able to better scrutinize the transactions of those negotiating on our behalf?

FNM on Baha Mar: "Only dictatorial and dishonest Governments do the peoples' business in the dark of Night' - Aug 25, 2016 - 1:57:31 PM

The Free National Movement condemns in the strongest possible terms the suspicious and undemocratic decision by the Christie led PLP government to request the Supreme Court of The Bahamas to put beyond the reach of the Bahamian people the Agreement which it signed with China EXIM Bank to complete the Baha Mar project. The Government must be aware that the agreement that they signed was executed by them on behalf of the Bahamian people and as a result, the Government has a sacred duty to make the agreement public and not keep the details from the people.

Only dictatorial and dishonest Governments do the peoples' business in the dark of night and hope that their deals never see the light of day.

We wish to put both the Government and the Chinese on notice that once in office an FNM Government in the sunshine will expose the agreement to the Bahamian people if this Government does not, so that any part of it that is not in the interest of...

DNA: The Economic Losses due to BahaMar are Staggering - Aug 24, 2016 - 5:41:26 PM

The DNA has analysed very carefully and deliberately the headline figures outlined in the local dailies with reference to the economic losses incurred by the stalling of the BahaMar Resort.

What we in the DNA request is a full acknowledgement of the report by officials within the Office of The Prime Minister and the Ministry of Finance. Secondly, we wish to have a full and open tabling of the document and all of its contents so we can all effectively make wiser decisions on the content and what it means for The Bahamas...

Dr. Minnis: PLP Government Hiding the Baha Mar Deals from the Bahamian People - Aug 24, 2016 - 5:35:47 PM

Nassau, Bahamas - Dr. Minnis, Leader of the Free National Movement (FNM), issued the following statement on the Prime Minister and his PLP Government hiding the Baha Mar deals from the Bahamian people:

“The Free National Movement is shocked and dismayed that the Christie led government has requested that the under the table secret deal that the Government made with the Chinese be sealed by the courts of The Bahamas. The Government must be aware that the agreement that they signed was signed by them on behalf of The Bahamian people and so the Government has a duty to make the agreement public. Only dictatorial and corrupt Governments do the peoples' business in the dark of night and hope that they never see the light of day but we wish to put both the Government and the Chinese on notice that we will put the sunlight on the agreement and cancel any part that is not in the interest of The Bahamian people...”

DNA: Sandals Resort firing 600 Workers is Frightening - Aug 24, 2016 - 12:37:04 PM

The Sandals Royal Bahamian Resort’s management just made a public spectacle out of The Bahamas, making the government of the day look like fools in the process and embarrassing our country in front of the entire world.

Unless you were glued 24/7 to the Olympics coverage, the world has now heard about the firing of over 600 employees at the Sandals Royal Bahamian Resort just a few short days ago. What may also be as equally surprising is that they also plan to re-hire the same staff, or some of them, within the next two weeks...

Alfred Sears: Moody’s Downgrade an Opportunity to Make much needed structural changes for our National Development - Aug 23, 2016 - 4:05:46 PM

Nassau, Bahamas – Alfred M. Sears, Queens Counsel, PLP Candidate for Fort Charlotte, Moody’s Investors Service yesterday followed through on the intention to downgrade The Bahamas credit ratings to Baa3 from Baa2. Responding to the news, Alfred Sears argued that the move presents The Bahamas with an historic opportunity to change its economic strategy and political processes to produce a more sustainable and secure future for The Bahamas.

Sears said, “What we must not do is wring our hands and say “Oh, this is bad.” We should seize this moment and make the kind of structural changes that will put our national development on a more sustainable path...

Dr. Minnis, Leader of the Free National Movement (FNM), issued the following statement on Moody’s downgrading The Bahamas credit rating:

“Every day since Moody’s placed The Bahamas’ Ratings on review for downgrade in July we have learned of a new impact this failure of the PLP Government is having on The Bahamas. And now that Moody’s has officially downgraded the country’s credit rating the situation could get worse. The PLP Government told us that they had productive meetings with Moody’s yet they still issued a downgrade showing their lack of trust in the Prime Minister and this Government...

Turnquest and FNM question cancelled Flag Football event to be held in Freeport - Aug 23, 2016 - 3:25:40 PM

The Government of The Bahamas over the past few months touted the Flag Football World Championships (FFWC) tournament as a major and beneficial event for Grand Bahama Island and the wider country. I have been advised and published news items support the same that on August 20, 2016, the International Federation of American Football (IFAF) revealed that the FFWC tournament that was scheduled to be held on Grand Bahama, September 8 - 12, 2016 has been cancelled. It is believed that based on this cancellation, the Bahamas National Team now becomes ineligible to participate in the World Championship tournament which was awarded as a result of the tournament beingstaged in the Bahamas. From all accounts, the tournament is set to be played in Miami, Florida, on the same dates previously announced...

DNA: Much Ado About Nothing (PM on Baha Mar) - Aug 23, 2016 - 1:11:51 PM

Last night, Prime Minister Perry Christie did his usual song and dance before the Bahamian people. Just like he did when they announced that they had regained the two per cent shares in BTC, there was an overflowing of grinning Ministers and cameras, but very little, if any details.

Last night, the Prime Minister claimed that the government had secured an agreement for the remobilization, completion, and opening of Baha Mar.

But what are the facts?

Dr. Minnis responds to the National Address on Baha Mar - Aug 23, 2016 - 10:09:30 AM

Dr. Minnis, Leader of the Free National Movement (FNM), issued the following statement following embattled Prime Minister Christie’s national address on Baha Mar:

“On behalf of the thousands of unemployed Bahamians, The Free National Movement welcomes the announcement made by the Prime Minister that an agreement has been reached with CCA to complete the Baha Mar project, however the Free National Movement is concerned and troubled by the lack of specificity in the announcement.  While the FNM believes the opening of Baha Mar is important to this Country and to the welfare of every Bahamian we believe that no deal made by the government should put The Bahamas and the Bahamian people in further jeopardy...

DNA Supports Police Compensation - Aug 22, 2016 - 5:30:44 PM

In the past many weeks and months, Bahamians from all sectors of the country’s workforce have watched as labor relations between the government and the country’s working class have deteriorated impacting members, various public sector unions as well as hotel and tourism employees. While not being part of a unionized environment, police officers and other members of the disciplined have also found themselves at the center of labor related disputes with the government. That said, the DNA has been very troubled by the seemingly snail’s pace at which the government is moving to address the concerns raised by members of the Police Staff Association regarding overtime payments and compensations earned by officers during increased work hours in 2013 and 2014...

Dr. Minnis on Neko Grant’s decision to retire from active politics - Aug 22, 2016 - 10:58:07 AM

minnis-n-Neko.jpg
As we in the Free National Movement celebrate twenty four years since our first election to govern The Bahamas, The Hon. Neko Grant 1, celebrates twenty four years of service to the people of The Bahamas as a Member of Parliament.

We note with deep appreciation and much respect for his long years of exemplary faithful service to The Bahamas and especially Grand Bahama and his constituents that the Hon. Neko Grant 1, has today announced his decision to retire from active politics at the expiry of his present term in office and not offer for reelection.

Mr. Grant was first elected to serve the people of Lucaya in 1992 and later the Central Grand Bahama Constituency for five successive five year terms as the Free...

Good Afternoon.

Today we celebrate that historic day, 24 years ago, when the Free National Movement crushed the PLP on the field of battle and ushered in “Government in the Sunshine”. On that great day the chains of 25 years of unbroken tyranny, political victimization and One-Party rule in our Bahamas were shattered forever! The dream of freedom of our founder, Cecil Wallace-Whitfield, unrealized during his lifetime, came to full fruition as a result of the unyielding struggle of his ardent followers and political heirs...

Dr. Minnis responds to "Sandals Resort debacle" - Aug 21, 2016 - 8:57:14 PM

Nassau, Bahamas - Dr. Minnis, Leader of the Free National Movement (FNM), issued the following statement on the embattled Prime Minister’s poor handling of the Sandals Resort debacle:

“The embattled Prime Minister Christie and his PLP Government’s handling of Sandals Resort closure is an absolute debacle. Under the Prime Minister’s watch over 2600 Bahamians have lost their jobs at Baha Mar and Sandals within the last year. The complete lack of competence by The Prime Minister and his ministers in the handling of our precious tourism industry has caused our economy over 6,000 Bahamian jobs. Had they done their jobs properly both Baha Mar and Sandals would be open today.

Nassau, Bahamas - Remarks by Bradley B Roberts,  National General Council, Progressive Liberal Party at a Special Meeting on August 18th 2016:

Dear Fellow Councilors, You will recall in our meeting of August 4th, my referring to the claim made by Dr. Minnis in his final address at the FNM that the FNM was united yet closed door fighting in the FNM continues to rage on. This was publicly confirmed with the tearful resignation of Neko Grant MP as Leader of Opposition business in Parliament. The position was offered to the MP Loretta Butler Turner who withdrew from the FNM leadership race hours before the actual voting having accused Dr. Minnis of criminal behavior but she turned it down proclaiming she was not for sale...
