Ryan Pinder statement on the Central Bank Report

Nassau, Bahamas - This
Free National Movement Government has failed Bahamians in their
governance and management of the financial affairs of The Bahamas
through reckless borrowing, uncontrolled spending and their overall
financial negligence. 

The
PLP Parliamentary Caucus in their communications on the Budget for this
fiscal year, made note on the inaccuracies of the budget projections.  Specifically,
in my Budget Communication I made note that this Government has had a
trend of inaccurate budget projections- underestimating expenditures and
over estimating revenue. It was pointed out that the most recent
example was last year's Budget where expenditure was 24 million dollars
more than forecasted and revenues were an alarming 94 million dollars

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...
