NASSAU, BAHAMAS – Former Works Minister Desmond Bannister says the Davis administration has left too many unanswered questions about what’s going on at Bahamas Power and Light.

Despite the prime minister saying BPL won’t be privatized, uncertainty continues to persist.

It comes as the two unions representing staffers at BPL are unhappy with a deal they say the Davis administration is finalizing to contract a company to oversee BPL’s transmission and distribution systems.

Prime Minister Philip Davis recently revealed the government is not looking to privatize the power giant.

In an X post, Energy Minister JoBeth Coleby-Davis said the government’s energy reform roadmap is to among other things, reduce prices, to increase reliability and efficiency, add cleaner sources of energy, upgrade and modernize outdated grids.

She said she’s looking forward to sharing updates in the coming days and weeks.  

But Bannister says the lack of information is also disadvantaging Bahamians.

Bannister says informing the public is a critical aspect of governance… 

Bahamas Electrical Workers Union President Kyle Wilson says the union is rejecting the deal.

He said it doesn’t seem this deal will benefit Bahamians.
