dc.description.abstract Biting IMF austerity measures in Dutch St. Martin has sent gas prices there soaring. The island’s administration has sent a delegation of commissioners to meet with the Antillean prime minister in an attempt to resolve the crisis. Next, after talks between the two countries an agreement between Haiti and the Dominican Republic has been reached on the question of the repatriation of Haitian refugees. The borders between the two countries are to be monitored by international organisations. Following, the Opposition Leader and the People’s National Movement want to continue consultation with Prime Minister, Basdeo Panday on the issue of a replacement for outgoing Head of State. They believe that Mr. Robinson’s involvement in politics disqualifies him from holding the executive type office of president. Next, former President of Dominica Sir Clarence Seignoret believes there is no reason why former Prime Minister, A.N.R. Robinson cannot become president. He was asked if the thinks that Mr. Robinson was too closely associated with party politics to bring the necessary impartiality of the office. Finally, black and white Americans are again sharply divided over the outcome of former American football superstar O.J. Simpson. Mr. Simpson is found liable for the wrongful death of his former wife and her friend. en_US
