Although Prime Minister Perry Christie ..., 17 Aug 2014 [cached]
Although Prime Minister Perry Christie and Deputy Prime Minister Philip Brave Davis have seemingly turned a blind eye to Leslie Miller's family-owned business paying $100,000 in cash on an outstanding Bahamas Electricity Corporation (BEC) bill revealed exclusively by The Nassau Guardian on June 17, we can now reveal that the management of BEC has contacted the Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) on this important matter.
What we do know is that Miller, BEC's executive chairman, informed us that the payment was made via cashier's check.
That came after The Nassau Guardian reported that Miller and one of his family-owned businesses collectively owed the corporation nearly a quarter of a million dollars.
How can the prime minister keep Leslie Miller on as chairman when Miller has shown a total disregard for the corporation's policy regarding bill payment?
If the answer is that Miller was unaware of that policy, this is also justification for Christie to fire him as executive chairman.
Matters like the one involving Leslie Miller and BEC are chipping away at this administration's credibility.
Christie's failure to deal with Leslie Miller feeds the perception that he is a weak leader.
He should be reminded that one of the key findings of researchers hired by the PLP leadership after the 2007 election defeat was that the "weak leader" image played a key role in the party's loss.
It is certainly his prerogative to keep Leslie Miller as executive chairman of BEC.
But why he does it in the face of all that has been revealed is baffling.
The fact that $100,000 was paid on the more than $200,000 bill is important for BEC, which, according to Miller, has $130 million in accounts receivable. But more importantly than that is "how" this bill was paid.
While we feel he did not go far enough in recent statements he made in Parliament on this matter, Opposition Leader Dr. Hubert Minnis was on to something when he raised it.
What stands out is that Miller, in his response in Parliament, avoided responding to questions on "how" the bill was paid.
Instead, he appealed to the public's sensibilities, saying that like other businesses, his family's operations fell on tough times.
Miller did not tell Parliament whether the $100,000 was cash collected by Mario's in legitimate business dealings, or whether it came from another source.
Minnis did not press the issue, which he raised four minutes before the end of his contribution.
We submit that he ought to have called for Miller's resignation.
The reason we have chosen to again raise the issue of Miller and the $100,000 is that we believe sincerely that our regulatory arrangements have to mean something.

NASSAU, Bahamas - The Bahamas Electricity Corporation (BEC) is in crisis mode and faces a worsening situation in the absence of urgent action on energy reform, BEC executive chairman Leslie Miller indicated on Monday.
BEC Chairman Leslie Miller ..., 29 Nov 2014 [cached]
BEC Chairman Leslie Miller told the media that six engines malfunctioned at the BEC power plant on Monday starting around 2pm which necessitated a massive load shedding exercise. This affected customers firstly in western New Providence before plunging eastern New Providence into darkness for most of the night. Power was restored early Tuesday morning. The Chairman stopped short of calling the blackout an act of industrial sabotage but said that he found it highly coincidental and strange that the blackout occurred shortly after BEC's union threatened consumers with a "black Christmas" and "no Junkanoo" if their labour demands were not met.
