decomission.png
Participants at an international IAEA conference in Spain have appealed for faster progress in addressing the legacy of the early development of nuclear energy, saying the decommissioning of old facilities and the remediation of affected sites should not be left to future generations.

“This issue has strong ethical dimensions,” Juan José Zaballa, president of the conference and of Spain’s National Company for Radioactive Waste (ENRESA), said in his conclusions to the International Conference on Advancing the Global Implementation of Decommissioning and Environmental Remediation Programmes on 27 May.

“Time and time again, this Government has shown it doesn’t believe in transparency and oversight, and now in an election year the country is told that the Prime Minister has rewarded himself with a $2,000,000 slush fund. The previous fiscal year the fund stood at $29,000 – that’s right, $29,000. Now it’s $2,000,000 – a stunning increase of 6,000 percent!”

Prime Minister Christie delivers 2016/2017 budget statement


The House of Assembly met on Wednesday of this week where the opening statement for the 2016/2017 budget was read by Bahamas Prime Minister the Rt. Hon. Perry G. Christie. It was the Prime Minister’s fifth and likely final budget communication before the next general election scheduled for May 2017 at the latest.

The Prime Minister touted the fiscal discipline of his administration in the successful execution of its near and medium term fiscal consolidation plan. Faced with a fiscal deficit well in excess of $500 million upon coming in to office in May 2012 said Mr. Christie, the GFS budget deficit now stands at $150 million, $10 million above the projected figure of $141 million due to the $10.2 million payout...

DNA: We Do Not Need Another PLP Budget - May 28, 2016 - 10:18:19 PM

The budget delivered in the House of Assembly today by the Prime Minister and Minister for Finance, Perry G. Christie, yet again earmarks nothing for alleviating pressures for every day Bahamians and certainly does not give us hope for the future. This slap-dash budget exemplifies confusion and mismanagement that one can seriously call lack of leadership, sincere oversight and over-shot projections.

During the mid-term budget presented in March of this year, the prime minister blamed a muted global economic recovery for his administration’s failures even though the American economy is stronger than ever, knowing full well a buoyant American economy means better for us...

DNA on the PLP’s proposed Mortgage Relief Programme - May 28, 2016 - 6:10:23 PM

We in the DNA are happy that the current administration has admitted their failures with regard to the initial mortgage relief programme and now is deciding to work with a new version of a Mortgage Relief Programme in the Prime Minister’s Budget Communication.

The fact of the matter is this issue has gone on too long; persons have been hurt and left ashamed due to losing their greatest investment; and long term damage has been done to lives and communities.

The details are still sketchy with regard to what this administration outlined in their budget communication in relation to their mortgage relief plan, which some are calling a Homeowner’s Protection Scheme, but we wish to weigh in on this because the DNA has presented an initial proposal for mortgage relief which we feel strongly that the government should take into consideration...
