PLP accuses govt of running from BTC controversy

Opposition MPs yesterday dismissed the government's explanation for the early suspension of the House of Assembly, saying government members were afraid to face the crowd gathered in Rawson Square to protest the imminent sale of the Bahamas Telecommunications Company (BTC).

Gas margin increase would be political suicide

The Bahamas Petroleum Retailers Association (BPRA) is in a bad situation. The retailers are seeking government authorization for a significant increase in the profit margins allowed regarding the sale of gasoline and diesel.
The increases proposed by the retailers would amount to an additional $0.28 per gallon for diesel and an additional $0.30 per gallon for gasoline, according to the retailers. Consumers would face higher bills for fuel if the government agreed to the increases. The government regulates the margins.
BPRA representative Oswald Moore told The Nassau Guardian Friday that the industry cannot survive under the current margins, as retailers spend $1,000 to buy diesel and earn ...

Govt defends its BTC deal

The government has released a lengthy statement arguing that its deal to sell 51 percent of the Bahamas Telecommunications Company (BTC) to Cable and Wireless Communications (CWC) is better for the country than the deal proposed by the Progressive Liberal Party (PLP) administration in 2007 for the sale of 49 percent of BTC to Bluewater Ventures Limited.

Bahamas Communications and Public Officers Union (BCPOU)?president Bernard Evans yesterday criticized National Security Minister Tommy Turnquest for characterizing union opposition to the sale of the majority stake in the Bahamas Telecommunications Company (BTC) as a national security threat.
Evans told The Nassau Guardian that the real threat is the government’s attempt to force the Bahamian people to accept Cable and Wireless Communications (CWC) – the company buying the BTC stake.
“We don’t see why the minister would want to waste the precious resources of the police force and the defence force to spy on us or to think that we would do something untoward. Why ...
