Elections schedule must adhere to Constitution – US Govt

first_imgWith concerns continuing to be raised about the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) and its capacity to carry out credible elections, the US State Department has reminded the country of the need for free and fair elections.This was communicated in a missive from Deputy Spokesperson for the US Department of State, Robert Palladino, in which an offer of assistance was also made. It comes at a time when GECOM failed to hold elections within 90 days of a no-confidence vote, as specified by the Constitution.Deputy Spokesperson for the US Department of State, Robert Palladino“The United States reiterates the importance of scheduling genuinely free and fair national elections in the Co-operative Republic of Guyana in adherence with the Guyanese Constitution and Guyanese law,” the missive stated.Palladino also went on to add that the United States Government “values Guyana as a friend and partner and stands ready to assist as needed.”The missive comes at a time when neighbouring Venezuela is in economic and political turmoil, with the US backing the Opposition to oust President Nicholás Maduro after elections widely criticised as fraudulent were held to give the Venezuelan leader a second term.Since the December 21, 2018, passage of the motion of no-confidence against the A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change coalition, calls have been made by various stakeholders including foreign diplomats here for the Guyana Government to abide by the Constitution and set a date for elections.British High Commissioner to Guyana, Greg Quinn in an exclusive interview with Guyana Times had reminded that the clock is ticking on the constitutional three-month deadline for holding elections.President David GrangerAdditionally, representatives from the United Nations (UN) and the European Union (EU) had also echoed similar calls in February for the Guyana Government to adhere to the Constitution.With less than six days remaining before the 90-day deadline expires, the Opposition People’s Progressive Party (PPP) had written several international bodies asking that they do not recognised the coalition Government after March 21.March 21, 2019, came and went with no elections being called and President David Granger laying blame for his delay in calling an election date at the feet of the GECOM. In an address to the nation, Granger claimed he was “constrained” from naming a date for elections because GECOM had not provided adequate information about its readiness for holding elections.Referring to recent meetings with GECOM Commissioners, President Granger had said that he has not received the guidance he needs to proclaim a date for elections. According to the President, it would be “reckless” for him to announce a date for elections without being satisfied that the Commission can guarantee credible elections.The day after March 21, Government faced protests in the streets from People’s Progressive Party (PPP) supporters calling on the State to facilitate elections and stop using GECOM as an excuse for not naming an elections date.However, the Government was handed a reprieve that same day when the Court of Appeal ruled in a 2:1 split decision that a majority of 34 votes would have been needed to validly pass the No-confidence motion brought against the Government last year. While Justice Rishi Persaud had dismissed the appeal and conferred with the ruling of the High Court, his colleague appellate judges allowed the state’s appeal.Both Justices Yonette Cummings-Edwards and Dawn Gregory opined that while 33 is the majority of the 65-member National Assembly, the successful passage of a no-confidence motion requires an “absolute majority” of 34, and not the “simple” majority of 33 that has been used to pass ordinary business in the House.The cases were referred to the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) and on Friday the court set May 10 as the date for hearing the no-confidence cases. The CCJ had the three cases, Christopher Ram v the Attorney General of Guyana, the Leader of the Opposition and Joseph Harmon; Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo v the Attorney General of Guyana, Dr Barton Scotland and Joseph Harmon; and Charrandas Persaud v Compton Herbert Reid, Dr Barton Scotland, Bharrat Jagdeo and Joseph Harmon; all abridged to save time.last_img read more

New talent spotted as GCA Cricket Clinic concludes

first_img– Johnson plans to make it an annual featureBy Timothy JaikarranWest Indies left handed middle order batsman Leon Johnson on Thursday August 30, 2018 concluded a successful one-day cricket clinic held in collaboration with the Georgetown Cricket Association (GCA). The well attended clinic took place at the former international venue, Georgetown Cricket Club (GCC), Bourda with participation from clubs within the GCA.Coaches and participants pose off after the one-day cricket clinic at the Georgetown Cricket Club ground, Bourda. Leon Johnson is standing at the centreThe clinic targeted young cricketers between the ages of 15 and 18 and Johnson who himself is a GCC member said it was his way of giving back. “It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a while, a form of giving back to clubs in the association that I’ve grown up playing in. When I was younger, I was given the same opportunities to learn and develop, so it’s only right that I give young talented players those same opportunities,” the Guyana Jaguars captain told Guyana Times Sport at the conclusion of the clinic.The 31-year old Johnson further stated, “Out of the session we saw some very talented players from as far as the East Coast [of Demerara] and we earmarked them so we can invite them to come down to Georgetown and play for one of the clubs here.”The exercise was blessed with brilliant weather that allowed the coaches adequate time to focus on the various techniques in both batting and bowling with the 32 participants.Also speaking with Guyana Times Sport was budding fast bowler from the Muslim Youth Organization (MYO), Byron Bowen who spoke of his experience. “I learnt various bowling techniques such as run up and wrist position. I love the way the coaches placed emphasis on our catching techniques as well.” Young Bowen was in high praises for the clinic and the work done by all of the coaches including President of the Georgetown cricket Association, Roger Harper.The clinic attracted players from 11 clubs that fall under the GCA. The beneficiaries of the first clinic are; Trevon Jones, Jeffery Blair, Jeremiah Benjamin, Raymond Bandhu, Jamual Michael, Akeem Clark, Noel Haynes, Devon Allen, Daveanand Khemraj, Andrew Samaroo, Ajay Gainda, Shafeek Khan, Dwayne Dick, Chandrapaul Ramraj, Navindra Persaud, Zechariah Mootoo, Joshua Gardner, Niron Bissu, Bryon Bowen, Ryan Ronaldo, Shane Niles, Amernaut Wickham,Chad Shiverattan,Wayne Bollers, Tuen Hicks, Kester McAllister, Kareem Whitney, Daniel Mootoo, Jason Holder, Garrick Persaud and Tameshar Permaul.Overwhelmed by the response, Johnson said he is looking to keep the clinic going on an annual basis where players from across the country may be exposed to the sessions as well.Former West Indies players Roger Harper, Reon King and Clyde Butts as well as Mark Harper, Darien Best and Peter Persaud were the coaches.last_img read more

General surgeries on pause in Fort St. John until August

first_imgThe hospital will also have more time for gynecological services, and dentists who perform services in the operating room, Dyck said.However, any one with emergency or general surgery needs will be be sent to other hospitals in the region, such as Dawson Creek, Prince George, or even Grande Prairie.“We work very closely with the other hospitals in the area,” Dyck said.“It always depends on the patient’s level of acuity. We’ll work with the other hospitals available to make sure that the services are available as appropriate.”Advertisement Fort St. John was left with only one general surgeon earlier this year after Dr. Jan Klompje left for what officials say were family reasons.Northern Health is currently recruiting for both a permanent and locum general surgeon. Fort St. John will be without a general surgeon for the month of July.Dr. Francois Coetzer began a six-week holiday beginning Canada Day and is expected to return August 11.Northern Health says it was unable to recruit a locum surgeon to cover the operating room at the Fort St. John Hospital, but adds that it will have a pair of visiting specialists in for the month of July to help trim wait lists.- Advertisement -“For this time, we were unable to find a locum general surgeon,” said Jonathon Dyck, communications officer for Northern Health.“However, we do have other types of surgery coming in, or people in the community who are locals and we’re expanding their time in the operating room that’s available.”In particular, Dyck says the hospital will have an ophthalmologist and orthopedic surgeon to reduce wait lists in those areas.Advertisementlast_img read more

Warnock rages over Cardiff’s controversial defeat

first_img0Shares0000Cardiff manager Neil Warnock was furious with key decisions in the defeat against Chelsea © AFP / Geoff CADDICKCARDIFF, United Kingdom, Mar 31 – Cardiff manager Neil Warnock admitted he was so angry with his side’s controversial defeat against Chelsea that he might play a weakened team at Manchester City on Wednesday.Warnock was furious that Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta was allowed to head a late equaliser from a clearly offside position as the Blues hit back to win 2-1 on Sunday. Relegation-threatened Cardiff had been leading with just six minutes left, but Azpilicueta’s goal was followed by more controversy as Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger escaped a red card despite hauling down Kenneth Zohore.Cardiff also felt they could have had two penalties, but it was Chelsea who took the points through Ruben Loftus-Cheek’s stoppage-time header.“It hurts. The referee had a decent game but we didn’t get the major decisions. The linesman, though…It is so disappointing. Chelsea know they have got away with murder today,” Warnock said.“When you don’t win and it is nothing to do with ourselves it is a kick in the teeth.“Against the big teams you have to have VAR because you don’t get the big decisions.“The equalising goal is the winning goal really, and if you can’t see across the line and see offside I don’t know why we are in the game.“I look at the two penalties we should have had and the red card against Kenneth Zohore.“The biggest and best league in the world but probably the worst officials at the minute.”Cardiff are five points from safety but have a game in hand at title-chasing City in midweek.After being denied a chance to close the gap on their relegation rivals, Warnock claimed he might even surrender the points by fielding his youngest players in a match they are likely to lose anyway against Pep Guardiola’s side.While Warnock is likely to change his mind once his anger subsides, his team selection will be closely monitored by Liverpool, who are fighting with City for the title.“We keep getting knock-backs, I will probably play the U23s on Wednesday against Manchester City and try to keep it down to 10 or 11,” Warnock said.“It doesn’t matter who you play at the minute, it is who has a flag in his hand and who has a whistle.”Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri conceded his team had been fortunate to escape with three points that kept their top four bid alive.Blues fans chanted for the under-fire Sarri to be sacked in the second half before their comeback gave him a little breathing space.“They were probably unhappy for the result. I can understand, I can understand very well. I am getting used to this,” Sarri said.“We were a little bit nervous. We didn’t play well in the first half and we conceded a stupid goal.“In the end we deserved to win. I don’t know if the goal was offside, I have to see the situation. Sometimes we can be lucky.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Premier League players to boycott social media in racism protest

first_imgThere have been growing concerns over how football should tackle racism following a number of incidents of abuse both at grounds and on social mediaEngland’s black players faced repeated racist chants during their Euro 2020 qualifier in Montenegro last month.Danny Rose said afterwards he had “had enough” and “can’t wait” to quit the game, with the Tottenham defender adding attempts by football authorities to punish racist incidents were “a farce”.Rose, giving his support to the PFA boycott, said: “When I said that I can’t wait to see the back of football, it is because of the racism that I, and many other players, have been subjected to our entire careers.“Football has a problem with racism. I don’t want any future players to go through what I’ve been through in my career.“Collectively, we are simply not willing to stand by while too little is done by football authorities and social media companies to protect players from this disgusting abuse.”The PFA said they wanted to show solidarity with affected players as well as demanding that football chiefs take stronger action to rid the game of racism.“Over the last few months we have seen a rise in appalling instances of racist abuse at grounds around the world, and on social media,” said Simone Pound, head of equalities at the PFA.“We cannot stand by while too little is done to address this unacceptable behaviour.”Pound added: “The PFA has always been at the forefront of tackling racism and we are reaffirming our commitment to all of our members. We will do all we can to put an end to the abuse players face on the pitch and online.”0Shares0000(Visited 3 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Enough is enough: Tottenham Hotspur defender Danny Rose © AFP/File / Daniel LEAL-OLIVASLONDON, United Kingdom, Apr 18 – Premier League stars will be among the footballers taking part in a 24-hour social media boycott on Friday as part of a protest against racist abuse online.The campaign, which is being co-ordinated by England’s Professional Footballers’ Association, urges players to stay off all social media from 9:00am local time (0800 GMT) Friday after posting the hashtag #Enough.last_img read more

NEW: ‘FRANCOIS STARTED CROOKED EMPIRE WITH STOLEN CASH’

first_imgA BUSINESSMAN has expressed surprise that so many people were conned by crook Francois de Dietrich.And he claims today that the Frenchman who swindled ‘investors’ out of €20M started his empire with stolen cash.Donegaldaily exposed Francois’s crimes six months ago – and we have also had it independently confirmed that de Dietrich stole up to €200k from a business in Donegal. He used this cash to start his Etic Solutions front company behind which he ran his scam.Businessman Stephen Kelly told donegaldaily today: “I know the guy 10 years and can’t understand how people where conned by him.“I saw both sides of him many times, he could make his staff feel like nothing one minute then charm the socks off someone he believed was wealthy the next.“He was running the same scam away before 2007, then it was Wine Investment and only involved around 1,000euro at a time but I guess he was building confidence with people. “He setup ETIC solutions from money he stole from a Donegal business.“He used this stolen money to put on a huge front, advertising and renting those offices in Ballybofey.“It looked so silly having huge offices with six staff..when they all could easily fit into one!”Mr Kelly warned: “He does need to be stopped now-and put behind bars…this guy will feel no remorse..and he will do it again.”Last night donegaldaily revealed that Francois has been to jail THREE TIMES in his native France for fraud. One victim was his own brother.Meanwhile a BBC programme tracked de Dietrich down to a village in northern France where he is living openly.He refused to comment other than to say he would return to Ireland to clear his name.He is wanted by police in the North where he faces 18 months jail for contempt of court. The crook swindled €20M out of Donegal investors over a three year period.Previous report here:UPDATED: FRANCOIS JAILED THREE TIMES FOR FRAUDNEW: ‘FRANCOIS STARTED CROOKED EMPIRE WITH STOLEN CASH’ was last modified: June 8th, 2011 by gregShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:BallybofeydonegaldonegaldailyFrancois de Dietrichletterkennylast_img read more
