dc.description.abstract The Dominican Republic has been singled out as one possible country where the Peruvians two Bakamaro rebels could be granted asylum. Next, after a homemade boat carrying immigrants from the Dominican Republic capsized between the two countries, the United States Coast Guard in Puerto Rico say that they are searching for survivors. Next, the debate continues on the suitability of A. N. R. Robinson for the presidential candidate, as Mr. Basdeo Panday, Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago returns home. Also, there are speculations of general elections following the election of a president. The tax measures introduced to address the island’s existing financial situation are having a serious impact on the economy of Dutch, St. Martin says the St. Martin’s Island Council. Voters’ registration by Guyana’s Election Commission has again fallen behind the schedule set up by the Commission. Fraud in past elections has made the voters’ list difficult to update. Lastly, Clive Lloyd, Manager of the West Indies cricket team has criticised comments made by Australian Captain Mark Taylor on the issue of sledging of batsman, Robert Samuels. en_US
