  1. Bahamas Prime Minister Ingraham’s remarks on the creation of a federation between The Bahamas and the Turks and Caicos

    Nassau, Bahamas – My colleagues and I have taken note of the comments reportedly made by former Premier of the Turks and Caicos Islands Michael Misick in an interview with The Tribune suggesting that the time has come to explore the possibility of creating a federation between The Bahamas and the Turks and Caicos.

    We are fully conscious of the fact that The Bahamas and the Turks and Caicos share the same archipelago and, indeed, at one time together constituted a colony of Great Britain administered from Nassau.

    We are also keenly aware of and treasure the close familial ties between the people of The Bahamas and the people of Turks and Caicos that has existed for many generations despite the accidents of history that separated us constitutionally.

    Like the rest of the Caribbean Community we have been dismayed at the recent turn of events in the Turks and Caicos Islands that resulted in the suspension of their Constitution and the imposition of direct rule by Great Britain.

    The people of The Bahamas and Turks and Caicos will be aware that we have been in consultation with Caricom and have been a party to certain diplomatic initiatives designed to help bring about a resolution of the current crisis.
    We consider that the priority of all concerned at this time must be a resolution of the crisis that will restore normality and constitutional order to Turks and Caicos. When that is achieved, my colleagues and I would be happy to discuss the further strengthening of our historic relationship in accordance with the will of the people of The Bahamas and the people of the Turks and Caicos Islands.
