Separating elections and budgets
May 10 marked the fourth-consecutive time The Bahamas has had a general election in May. This is a bad practice we keep repeating. By law the budget statement is to be presented to Parliament by the end of May. The state’s fiscal year ends June 30...
 
 
Resolving police pay issue
Officers of the Royal Bahamas Police Force yesterday began receiving payments owed to them for working extended shifts in 2013. The payments were made at the Police Training College in New Providence. In 2013 officers worked 12-hour shifts in an eff...
 
 
End of the road for the third party
The Democratic National Alliance (DNA), which was formed in 2011, has now run in two elections. In May 2012 it won 8.5 percent of the vote and no seats. The party kept together and tried again. In May 2017 it won 4.7 percent of the vote and no seats....

Love affair will end without economic growth
Bahamians are pleased that they removed the Progressive Liberal Party (PLP) and its former leader, Perry Christie, from office. There was a genuine fear that the party would ruin The Bahamas. From Abaco in the north to the MICAL constituency in the ...
 
 
Young MP should be patient
Members of Parliament are scheduled to be sworn in on Wednesday when Parliament opens. The Free National Movement (FNM) won 35 seats. The PLP only captured four. The new prime minister, Dr. Hubert Minnis, has named his Cabinet. It’s big. There are...
 
 
Police investigation should take its course
We should not get excited just because the Royal Bahamas Police Force has taken a former Progressive Liberal Party (PLP) member of Parliament into custody. Our force is independent and has the authority to pursue any matter, regardless of who might b...
