EDITOR, The Tribune.
If you think of the Bahamas as being a very large company with 300,000 shareholders (the people) and then accept that the Board of Directors is the Government of the Bahamas then logically Perry Christie is the Chief Executive Officer.
The role of the CEO is to make important balanced decisions for the overall benefit of his shareholders, that is what he gets paid for (and paid well).
Some of the shareholders may be unhappy with the CEO’s decisions but he must not let that affect him with key issues.
Mr Christie in the debacle at NI in regards to Mr Moss in particular has decided to make no decision and in essence renege on his responsibilities.
Usually when shareholders in a company perceive their CEO as being weak the CEO is removed by the shareholders as is their right.
The only problem with this scenario with a government is you have to wait four to five years to remove said CEO.
The pity here is it will cost every shareholder in this case us, PLP and FNM, real money to have a ineffective CEO as without doubt poor management at the highest level cost businesses always.
Democracy - you get what you vote for.
