DNA: Paradise, Paralyzed by Fear - Oct 21, 2016 - 10:47:50 AM

The Democratic National Alliance is saddened by the gruesome attack in which the party’s Nassau Village Chairperson, Wendy McIntosh, was shot multiple times.

It is deeply disturbing that at a time when many of us in the country are focused on rebuilding and restoration efforts, the criminal element in this country has chosen to exploit the vulnerabilities of a country in transition. Sadly, this is a clear indicator of how far we have strayed away from the core Christian values of brotherly love that once guided us.

It also proves that now more than ever, the Government of the Bahamas must take drastic steps in addressing crime and the fear of crime in this country...

DNA says No to Hurricane Tax - Oct 18, 2016 - 12:44:21 PM

Hurricane Matthew has cost already struggling Bahamian families nearly everything. In the days following the passage of the monster storm, hundreds have struggled to meet even their most basic needs: food, clothing, shelter. Now, as Bahamians work to piece together the fragments of their own lives, our country’s leaders are, according to published reports, considering a Hurricane Tax to fund the ongoing recovery efforts.

The Democratic National Alliance cannot and will not support such a tax!

McCartney: The Teachable Moments Abound! - Oct 17, 2016 - 1:57:03 AM

The aftermath of Hurricane Matthew has left much to be desired from a recovery and restoration standpoint. Even as this Christie led government, and the newly appointed Minister of Restoration pat themselves on the back, thousands of Bahamians across the country, specifically on GBI and North Andros remain without the necessary food, water, power and other emergency items while much of New Providence remains in darkness. In the days following the passage of Joaquin just one year ago, the Prime Minister pontificated at length about the many lessons his government learned from dealing with the aftermath. Chief among them he said at the time, was NEVER to be caught unprepared and to ensure the necessary response infrastructure in terms of legislation for funding relief efforts as well as the basic and fundamental to facilitate the immediate distribution of relief supplies. In the face of such evidence, one thing has been made abundantly clear: THIS GOVERNMENT LEARNED NOTHING FROM HURRICANE JOAQUIN’S TEACHABLE MOMENTS! As a matter of fact, the Prime Minister stated that NEMA was not prepared for this type of disaster brought on by Mathew.

Branville McCartney on Hurricane Mathew - Oct 8, 2016 - 11:08:32 AM

The passage of Hurricane Matthew represents the most widespread natural disaster to face the Bahamas in recent memory. No island in our beautiful archipelago was spared from the destruction.

Amid reports of harrowing rescues, NEMA is to be commended for its quick responses, which undoubtedly saved lives. We are equally pleased with the rapid response of assessment teams moving around through the island of New Providence and the wider country. We ask that these groups be allowed to complete their work without hindrance...

Branville McCartney on Preparing for Hurricane Matthew - Oct 3, 2016 - 4:09:50 PM

One year ago, hurricane Joaquin barreled through the South Eastern Bahamas as a powerful Category four system, causing unspeakable damage to the lives of Bahamians, many of whom lost everything. Now, the Bahamas is once again under the threat of a major storm and from forecast projections, Bahamians on the islands most affected by Joaquin in 2015 are once again in the potential path of destruction.

As the storm prepares to approach Jamaica, we were pleased to note the decision by the government to bring Bahamian students from the University of the West Indies Home. However MORE ACTION and specific government intervention will be needed to help Bahamians prepare for the impending system, particularly those who are still recovering from the damage left behind by Joaquin...

DNA: 90% debt to GDP - We must change now! - Oct 3, 2016 - 1:22:21 PM

The current administration has done it again in terms of besting their new lows and sinking our country deeper than ever before. The Central Bank of The Bahamas just recently reported that the total debt for our country is over 90% of our Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Coming from our own regulators, this is somewhat disturbing.

What is equally as important is that at the same time ratings agencies like Moody’s and S&P are on the continual path to downgraded our economy to junk bond status, with both rating agencies having us at the level right above junk bond status. So, these reports by our own regulators are things they watch in earnest and with keen interest...

Anycia Collie DNA Convention Speech: The Bahamas I want - Oct 1, 2016 - 5:00:49 AM

Ten years ago, I entered a speech competition under the theme, “My dream Bahamas”. I was nine years old at the time and it was my first time “talking for a trophy”. I was obviously nervous. I remember my heart pounding out of my chest – much like it is right now. I remember wiping my small sweaty palms on my jumper as I silently willed myself to remember the things I had rehearsed. The moment I opened my mouth though, all reservations went away because I truly believed the words I had written because my dream was my treasure. After my speech, I was approached by the then Minister of Education. He shook my hand and said: “Great speech. I will work hard to make it possible one day.” And at the time I believed him.

Years later, my teenage self would have the opportunity to pitch the idea of my dream Bahamas to the Minister of Youth. I told him how I dreamt of a country that embraces the abilities of Bahamian Creatives like myself and created an environment for them to have fulfilling careers at home...

IN a poem entitled the power of family, a young poet by the name of Antony Smith writes: Family is the strongest team, the strongest unit, if love could be visualized, family would be the blueprint.

Good Evening DNA’s!! Protocol having been established I would like to say Big HELLO to people of the great constituency of PINERIDGE!!!!

Ladies and Gentlemen, the country’s labor force is its very foundation. Many of you will leave here tonight, head home and prepare for your workday tomorrow. Many of you watching may already be doing so. Your presence on the job tomorrow will not only facilitate a certain lifestyle for you and your family but will also fuel profits and productivity for your employer. You, the hardworking Bahamian mother, the dedicated father, the new high school or college graduate, YOU and others like you that help make up the country’s labor force are the very foundation of this great nation...

Dr. Minnis on Reports of CCA Work Permits - Sep 30, 2016 - 12:47:52 PM

Dr. Minnis, Leader of the Free National Movement (FNM), issued the following statement on reports of CCA requesting 400 work permits:

“Why is the CCA requesting 400 work permits for foreign workers?  Was this one of the missing details shrouded in secrecy when the embattled Prime Minister had the courts seal the deal?  There are countless Bahamians looking for good paying jobs, yet this Government would rather bestow those jobs on foreign workers.  This revelation is just one of a growing list of troubling reasons why the people are crying out for the embattled Prime Minister to, ‘unseal his secret deal...’

DNA Convention 2016 Remarks by Branville McCartney - Sep 30, 2016 - 11:07:15 AM

Ladies and Gentlemen, On 12th May 2011, The Democratic National Alliance was launched with the intention of offering Bahamians a real alternative in governance. On 7th May, 2012, we made history by capturing almost 10 percent of the vote, and while the Bahamian people made another choice, the DNA has not abandoned its mission to offer true representation to the people of this country.

It has been 5 years since the DNA was established. That’s two hundred and sixty weeks, One thousand eight hundred and twenty five days and forty three thousand eight hundred hours to be exact. During that time The Bahamas watched as the idea that everyone knew to be our only hope unfolded, grew and developed and changed the political landscape of our country forever...

Elkanah Pinder Convention Speech: Putting Grand Bahamians Back to Work - Sep 30, 2016 - 10:17:46 AM

Upon making the decision to put myself forward for frontline politics, I thought long and hard about what the people on the Island of Grand Bahama Island, and most importantly what the people of EAST GRAND BAHAMA want and need most of all. In moving around the island, I’ve seen and spoken with people of all walks of life, Young people, the elderly, Mothers and Fathers, single people and married people and by the far, the thing that people want most is an opportunity.

Ladies and Gentlemen in the last decade GB has experienced the worst economic downturn in the history of our nation. For the past ten years, Grand Bahama has suffered at the hands of neglectful governments who have paid only lip service to the idea of real development for this island...

Sidney Collie, Chairman of the Free National Movement (FNM), issued the following statement on the release of the 2016 Bahamas Junkanoo Carnival’s Economic Impact Report:

“It has taken months for this Government to release the 2016 Bahamas Junkanoo Carnival’s Economic Impact Report to the public, and the findings are just one more example of why we need more transparency from our Government. The 2016 Junkanoo Carnival report reveals that the PLP Government went over budget by more than five million dollars...

“The FNM has stood with the Bahamian people demanding that the PLP Government fix the injustice that was brought upon the former Baha Mar employees when they were laid off without receiving their pay. We are amazed to hear the comment from the Government’s representative on the claims committee,

Dr. Minnis, Leader of the Free National Movement (FNM), issued the following statement on former Baha Mar employees finally receiving their back wages:

“The Free National Movement is happy that the long ordeal for thousands of Bahamians is finally over and they have started to receive their wages for completed work that are long past due. The FNM stood with the people for over a year as we carried this fight forward, holding the PLP Government’s feet to the fire over this matter forcing them to face the voices they so often ignore or silence. Last week, when The Bahamas found out that the PLP’s secret deal did not include the payment of CCA contractors for work done at Baha Mar, we once again stood with the people and let our voices be heard, calling on the embattled Prime Minister..."

Dr. Minnis on the Princess Margaret Hospital AC Outages - Sep 26, 2016 - 6:05:00 PM

Nassau, Bahamas - Dr. Minnis, Leader of the Free National Movement (FNM), issued the following statement on reports that the Princess Margaret Hospital air conditioning outages are being caused by BPL inefficiencies:

“This Government has set up an appalling system of ‘haves’ and the ‘have nots’. Baha Mar sits in their ‘have’ category, while it continues to sit and utilize electricity even though it has over $26 million in unpaid bills that the government decided to ignore. On the other side are the people and those families that sat with no electricity over the summer and endured sweltering heat.”

Minnis on Reports of AC outages at Princess Margaret Hospital - Sep 25, 2016 - 5:13:22 PM

Dr. Minnis, Leader of the Free National Movement (FNM), issued the following statement on the reports coming out of Princess Margaret Hospital that the operating rooms have been without air conditioning for two weeks:

“As a Doctor and the former Minister of Health, I am appalled by the alarming reports coming from Princess Margaret Hospital that there has not been air conditioning in the operating rooms for two weeks. It is unacceptable that patients are being turned away from their scheduled procedures and told to go to Doctor’s Hospital. Princess Margaret Hospital serves those most in need, some who cannot afford health insurance...”

Roberts: Did the FNM abuse the nolle prosequi with corrupt pay for play scheme? - Sep 25, 2016 - 5:00:37 PM

I would be remiss if I did not remind the Bahamian people of the FNM’s wanton abuse of the nolle prosequi while in office.

Serial loser Dr. Duane Sands was in the media recently talking about integrity in public life, but where was Dr. Sands when his uncle in his role as the Attorney General issued a nolle prosequi in the premeditated, cold-blooded and calculated murder of a young black male at the hands of a member of the Mosko family. The assailant fled into exile in Greece to escape justice only to return to The Bahamas to have a FNM government assist him in escaping justice with the issue of a nolli prosequi...

Collie responds to DPM Davis' statement on the Sandals’ ‘Nolle Prosequi’ - Sep 23, 2016 - 5:52:34 PM

Nassau, Bahamas - Sidney Collie, Chairman of the Free National Movement (FNM), issued the following statement regarding Deputy Prime Minister Brave Davis stating he that the Sandals’ ‘nolle prosequi’ shows that the PLP Government is looking out for foreign investors over the Bahamian people:

“The split in the PLP Government continues over the ‘nolle prosequi’ granted by Attorney General Allison Maynard in the Sandals affair. Deputy Prime Minister Brave Davis, when asked if this action showed that the PLP Government prioritised foreign interests over Bahamian interest stated, ‘I think this is something they could point to that may lend some credence to it.’ This comes on top of Minister of Tourism, Obie Wilchcombe also stating that Minister Gibson ‘spoke for many of us’ in regards to disagreeing with the Attorney General’s action...

Dr. Minnis on the Baha Mar deal - Sep 23, 2016 - 9:43:04 AM

Dr. Minnis, Leader of the Free National Movement (FNM), issued the following statement on the continued failures of the PLP Government to protect all Bahamian Baha Mar creditors:

“Once again we continue to find out more reasons why the embattled Prime Minister should release all the documents related to the secret Baha Mar deal he struck with the Chinese. This time we find out that he did not guarantee that all Bahamians that worked on the Baha Mar project would be paid the money owed to them for previously completed work. The Prime Minister stated in his original vague announcement that the PLP Government had guaranteed Bahamian contractors and creditors would be paid, we now know this to be false...
