Tear up TCI Constitution desire of Minister Gardiner

However, Mr Speaker but that is exactly what I think of the document on the whole.” Hon Donhue Gardiner actually served on the committee overseeing the national consultation leg of the review; but said there now needs to be a referendum to do two things; one determine if TC Islanders want to gain independence from the British and to two, determine if the changes recommended are what the electorate really want. An attorney, Minister Gardiner says he believes the trial by jury right needs to be returned in the constitution as the right solely of the defendant in any case. “I would certainly come down on the side of being in favor for the reinstatement of that right and the right also that he might also have to a bench trial.” He adamantly expressed that no governor, whom he labeled a virtual stranger should have so much power in the legislative. On the point of who should make up the members of the House of Assembly, Hon Gardiner has the view that no member of the House should be appointed; that all should be elected by the voting public during a General Election.“I do not believe in the notion of an elected Speaker from the outside, I believe unless you have been tested at the ballot box you do not have a right to speak on behalf of the people, you do not have a right to vote on behalf of the people, you do not have a right to preside over the People’s House.”last_img read more

The Government has a very clear guiding vision for a better future

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, March 9, 2018 – Nassau – Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, the Hon. K. Peter Turnquest said to properly understand the Government’s fiscal consolidation strategy and the state of the public finances at the mid-point of the 2017/18 fiscal year, it is necessary to begin with a realistic and thorough assessment of the gravity of the fiscal challenges that this Government Administration inherited from the previous administration.“Irrespective of the baseless and empty rhetoric that we have heard following the presentation of the Mid-Year Statement, our Government does have a very clear guiding vision for a better future for Bahamians, with both a stronger economy and enhanced job opportunities.  We also have a plan for getting there,” the DPM said during his Contribution to the 2017/18 Mid-Year Budget Debate in the House of Assembly, Wednesday, March 7, 2018.He said the present administration elaborated on their vision and plan in its 2017 Manifesto, in the Speech from the Throne, as well as in the May Budget Communication.“As I made amply clear in the Budget Communication, however, we must as a priority addresses the fiscal mess that we inherited from the party opposite. We simply cannot, and will not, spend recklessly as did the previous administration without due regard for the financial resources available.“Ours is now the task of putting order in the public finances of our nation to arrest the seemingly inexorable rise in the burden of Government debt that hangs like the proverbial albatross around the neck of Bahamian society and our economy.”The DPM said it is imperative that the burden of debt is returned to lower and more sustainable levels in order to free up the critical resources that are necessary to fully implement the action plans within the Government’s socio-economic growth agenda as promptly and effectively as possible.He explained that when the burden of Government Debt represented a more manageable and sustainable 30 per cent of GDP, the Government’s interest payments on the debt accounted for some 10 cents of every revenue dollar.“Last fiscal year, with a debt burden of 57.6 per cent of GDP, interest payments chewed up almost 14.5 cents of every revenue dollar.“Were it possible to return to a burden of debt under which interest payments again accounted for 10 per cent of revenues, our annual interest payments would be appreciably reduced.“At the 2017/18 level of revenues, the savings would be on the order of $75 million.  Those are precious financial resources indeed that could make a significant contribution to the advancement of the Government’s agenda for growth through, for example, supplementary investments in education, health or infrastructure.”He said it needs to be stressed that much work needs to be done to get the country to the type of debt burden objective that would be preferable. However, the Government is firmly committed, through its concrete fiscal consolidation plan, to getting the country moving in that direction.DPM Turnqest said as a first step requires the elimination of the annual Government deficit that is the direct cause of increased borrowing.He said, “Eliminating the deficit and getting to a lower debt burden are also vital to recreating the fiscal room to manoeuvre that is prudently required to allow the country to deal with unforeseen economic and other shocks, such as hurricanes, that may present themselves in the period ahead.”By: Llonella Gilbert (BIS) Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApplast_img read more

The program aims to connect homeless residents in Hillcrest with trained service workers to help them obtain stable housing and social services.“Connect Hillcrest is a model, collaborative initiative that is actively working to address homelessness,” Ward said. “It’s my hope that the knowledge gained from this program will give local government and service providers the data needed to improve upon current homelessness outreach protocols while expanding services to other impacted communities across our region.”The announcement comes four days after Ward announced the launch of a similar program for homeless residents in the North Park and City Heights neighborhoods. Both are part of the city and county’s efforts to improve access to necessary services like housing assistance, job training and medical care for the county’s homeless population. Last year’s point-in-time homeless count estimated the county’s unsheltered homeless population at roughly 5,000.“The county and city are now standing together and working as partners,” Fletcher said. “Through the Connect Hillcrest pilot, we are working collaboratively, and with our community partners, to connect people experiencing homelessness with resources that put them on a path to a healthier, more stable life.
