PLP calls for FNM to change position on Urban Renewal

THE Progressive Liberal Party has again called for the Free National Movement government to alter its position on the current structure of the Urban Renewal Programme (URP) after Jamaica began reporting that its community policing programme is yielding results in that country.

A party statement said: "It is reported that community policing was nonexistent or very challenging in that area. Following the joint police/military operation of June 24, 2010 in Tivoli Gardens, th ...

Letter: Comparing the FNM and PLP on Baha Mar

EDITOR, The Tribune.

The last 24-hours has been interesting for those who follow the antics of our national politicians - just contrast the governing FNM to the Opposition PLP on Baha Mar.

In some ways both have their story but both stories differ in so much as absolutely nothing has occurred other than the renovation to the tune of $90 million of what is the Sheraton - the Prime Minister confirmed as what was speculated Baha Mar has still not paid the Treasury the $10.1 million for the Stamp Tax due on the sale agreement of the Radisson in 2005 - he very politically declined to state what was implied that Baha Mar had further debts to the government - I really think the Prime Minister shoul ...

PLP: Foreigners being given preference over Bahamians by the FNM Government

Nassau, Bahamas - The
PLP finds it necessary to again point out the FNM government's
continuing lack of confidence in and commitment to utilizing the skills
of highly trained and competent Bahamian professionals especially in
these economically challenging times.

Recently
the Prime Minister in the House of Assembly announced in a very
despicable manner that he had withdrawn his support for Cheryl Grant
Bethel, a long time tried and proven Deputy Director of Public
Prosecution to become the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) and
instead supported the appointment of Jamaican Vinette Graham Allen...

Progressive Liberal Party Statement On Straw Vendors in New York

Nassau, Bahamas - The Deputy Prime Minister Brent Symonette's remarks about the
arrest of the vendors in New York is unhelpful. A Minister of Foreign
Affairs cannot come off as politically impotent in their situation. When
its citizens are in trouble, they expect that the government will come
to their assistance. Thankfully, the technocrats in Foreign Affairs know
what their job is: to intervene to ensure that there is due process,
that they are being properly treated and have the benefit of all the
rights to which they are entitled. Now is not the time to lecture people
about what they ought to be doing but rather to seek to help in a bad
situation.

From what is in the public domain, firstly it is being
said that the Americans conducted a surveillance operation in the
Bahamas which led to the arrest of the individuals...
