dc.description.abstractIn the Bahamas, the government, Free National Movement and the Opposition, Progressive Liberal Party are both gearing up for Friday’s general election. Next, general elections are constitutionally due in St Lucia in a couple of weeks, however, there are several dramatic changes in the political landscape. The death of a Labour Party candidate and the resignation from the party of another, raises the prospects of a bye-election before the next general election and the likelihood of a former Opposition leader running as an independent. In the following, Montserrat’s dismissed Agriculture Minister said today that he was not clear on the reasons for his being fired. However, the Chief Minister, said that the Agriculture Minister’s decision to close down the operations of the Land Development Authority without consultation with the rest of the cabinet showed that he was no longer willing to work with the coalition government. Next, tomorrow will be a year that the United States President Bill Clinton signed the controversial Helms-Burton Act. Consequences of this legislation are discussed. Next, former West Indies opening batsman, Desmond Haynes is looking forward to life after retirement as a coach. In the final segment, a Saudi Arabian Bank, which would be guided by Islamic principles, is exploring the possibility of setting up a branch in Trinidad and Tobago.en_US
