President Sirleaf Commissions NEC Executive Director

first_imgPresident Ellen Johnson Sirleaf on Tuesday commissioned the executive director of the National Elections Commission (NEC), C. A. Lamin Lighe at the headquarters of the Commission in Monrovia.President Sirleaf used the occasion to challenge the commission to conduct the upcoming October elections in a free, fair and transparent manner.The President said the October 10 elections are a defining moment for Liberia, “because it will determine whether or not the country goes forward and promotes its democracy, or if Liberia moves backward.”At the same time, President Sirleaf said Liberians still have total confidence in the ability of the NEC to credible elections based on the number of successful and transparent by-elections the Commission has conducted over the years.“We know that the Commission will face challenges, mainly legal difficulties,” President Sirleaf added.She said her government will continue to provide all the necessary assistance to the Commission to ensure that it successfully executes its constitutional mandate to conduct the elections.Responding, Mr. Lighe assured the President and Liberians that with the support of the Board of Commissioners and the employees of the NEC, a free, fair and transparent election is certain, and will be based on international best practices, producing a result that will be accepted by the Liberian people.Lighe said such elections will ensure the smooth transition of one democratically elected government to another.He promised to always justify the confidence reposed in him by President Sirleaf to serve as executive director of the NEC.Welcoming the President and delegation to the headquarters of the NEC on 9th Street, Sinkor, the chairman, Jerome George Korkoya, assured her that all is moving as planned to conduct free, fair and transparent elections on October 10.Chairman Korkoya said the President’s visit to the Commission came at the right time for her to be fully updated on the entire electoral process. He said the Commission is grateful to the Liberian government for its support.Korkoya and the Board of Commissioners  led the president on a tour of the NEC facilities before bidding her farewell.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

U-turn: Ramjattan now admits CPGs are important

first_img… 2 years after taking away resourcesAfter taking away the vehicles from the Community Policing Groups (CPGs) back in 2015 and hand them over to the Guyana Police Force, Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan has stated that several of those resources have since been returned to the CPG.Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan and Head of the Community Policing Organisation of Guyana, Denis Pompey, along with other CPG officials at the press conference on WednesdayIn fact, at a press conference on Wednesday to mark the 41st anniversary of the Community Policing Organisation of Guyana, the Minister outlined the importance of CPGs, adding that his Ministry during the course of last year took steps to further enhance the assets of the Organisation.“As you know, when I came into the administration, a lot of the vehicles for the CPG were given to the Police because the Police was in a problem. We’ve gotten a couple back from the Police but not all,” he stated.Moreover Ramjattan pointed out that having recognised the important role of CPGs, his Ministry has been expending resources to have the members trained in specific areas to be able to better identify and tackle certain situations within their communities, since they are usually the first responders in the event of any criminal activities.Over the years, he added, Community Policing Group members were exposed to training in policing; domestic and gender-based violence; Trafficking In Persons (TIP); conflict and anger management; interpersonal violence; fire and road safety; First Aid; suicide awareness and more recently, noise nuisance.Ramjattan has now admitted that “it is monies, in my view at this stage, well spent but of course we can do better by virtue of training so that the CPG members can have a better capacity and quality in seeking out information and transferring it… and also becoming leaders in the communities as to how they can secure themselves from the variety of crimes that occur and the variety of wrongdoings that occur. That is why, at this stage, more training is going to happen with the CPGs so that they too can lessen (criminal activities).”In addition to boosting the resource and capability of the Organisation, Minister Ramjattan pointed out that “more aggressive” efforts need to be taken to encourage citizens to join the CPG membership to aid in reducing crime within their communities. He underscored that CPGs are an important supplement to the Police Force, having eyes and ears on the ground within communities and are able to pass certain information on to the Police to assist in enforcement efforts.“Those who are committing domestic violence, those who beat up their wives or their spouses, those who would have a tendency of wanting to kill them and put them in some grave at the backyard and grow bora – the community generally knows and they if they could be the eyes and ears that could give that preliminary detection work, we in the Police Force and other enforcement agencies, can be better equipped because we are more informed as to what is happening on the ground.So it is vital that more and more people all across the communities of Guyana join up so that they could be this supplementary, this complementary force to the Guyana Police Force and other agencies,” Ramjattan outlined.The membership of Community Policing Organisation of Guyana currently consists of 166 groups with a membership of 4347, almost the same as the 4500 compliment of the Guyana Police Force.During its operations in 2016, CPGs conducted vehicular, motor cycle, bicycle, foot, boat patrols and ATV patrols, amounting to some 30,000 patrols. Additionally, CPG members were able to make some 89 arrests ranging from murders to domestic violence.This year’s anniversary, which is being observed under the theme: “Celebrating 41 years of partnership; supporting reform and development”, commenced on April 1 with an Interfaith Service at Tagore Secondary School in Corentyne, Berbice, and will conclude on May 27 with a women’s conference. This year’s main celebratory events will be held in the ancient county.last_img read more

GECOM stonewalls on elections readiness

first_img…as illegal GECOM Chair squats on jobAs President David Granger is still waiting on Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM), whose Chairman was unconstitutionally appointed, despite the Caribbean Court of Justice ruling on Monday, to determine when elections will be held, the elections body is mum on the matter.Guyana Elections Commission’s Main Street, Georgetown headquartersWhen contacted to ascertain whether GECOM has taken any further action since the CCJ ruling with respect to election preparations, Public Relations Officer Yolanda Ward declined to comment, save to say updates will be available only after GECOM has its next regular statutory meeting.It has been almost seven months since the No-Confidence Motion brought by the parliamentary opposition against the coalition Government was passed in the National Assembly, toppling them from power.Article 106 (6) of the Constitution of Guyana states: “The Cabinet including the President shall resign if the Government is defeated by the vote of a majority of all the elected members of the National Assembly on a vote of confidence”.Meanwhile, Article 106 (7) states that “Notwithstanding its defeat, the Government shall remain in office and shall hold an election within three months, or such longer period as the National Assembly shall by resolution supported by no less than two-thirds of the votes of all the elected members of the National Assembly determine, and shall resign after the President takes the oath of office following the election”.None of this was followed, as the Government then embarked on a series of legal challenges that ultimately ended at the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) on Tuesday when it confirmed that the no-confidence vote was valid.In all that time, however, GECOM failed to carry out any viable preparatory work. This is despite the fact that the Constitution sets out a three-month timeframe for it to carry out elections and also that part of GECOM’s mandate is to always be in a state of readiness for elections whether a no-confidence vote has been brought or not.The law also stipulates that the voters’ list has to be updated by Continuous Registration and/or Claims and Objections, an exercise persons have opined GECOM was expected to have embarked upon since last year or, at latest, in January 2019 after the Commission reconvened.Meanwhile, President David Granger, whose Administration was toppled, on Wednesday reiterated his call for house-to-house registration, an exercise that will further delay elections that should have been held since March 21, 2019. His comments were viewed as a direct disregard for the ruling of the CCJ, which is the highest regional court.Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo had thrown the Government an olive branch on Tuesday at a press conference, where he said that while principle meant elections must be held now, in the interests of practicality, the opposition would support elections in two to three months.The voters’ list, which expired only on April 30, was the one used to carry out Local Government Elections (LGE) in November of last year, an elections hailed by all as smooth and credible.In addition, GECOM’s own Legal Officer, Excellence Dazzell, had advised the Commission last month that subject to Section 7 (1) of the Elections Amendment Act (2000), there was no need for a new list but rather, the old existing list could and should be updated.Section 7 (1) of the Elections Amendment Act states “Where there is an interval of more than six months after the qualifying date …. the Commissioner shall cause the official list of electors and non-resident electors’ roll to be revised, in accordance with procedure established by the Commission by regulations – (a) by adding thereto the names of persons who have or may become qualified electors for registration as after the said qualifying date and before the day appointed for the election; and (b) by deleting therefrom the names of persons who are registered as electors, but have ceased to be qualified to be so registered after the said qualifying date and before such date, being a date prior to the date appointed for the election, as may be specified by the Commission by notification in the Gazette”.The opinion expressed by Dazzell also states that: “The use of the word ‘revise’ [in the Election Laws (Amendment) Act 15 of 2000] suggest that the process is not one where a ‘new’ List is generated, but one where the most recent list is updated or amended….I, therefore, advise that procedures be put in place to ensure the revision of the list, otherwise, the Commission would be acting in defiance of the law and may prejudice a by-election that may become necessary”.last_img read more

Summit gearing up for first playoff game

first_img“People at school are so excited about girls basketball,” SkyHawks coach Alexis Onishi said. “It’s so cool. All of the teachers got messages in their boxes this week urging them to go to our playoff game.” Summit (23-3) plays the first playoff game in school history, hosting a CIF-Southern Section Division 3A opener at 7:30 p.m. Saturday against Ganesha. The trophy case at Summit High School is a little bare at this early stage in the school’s history. There are just two purely athletic awards, one for winning a Whittier Christian Tournament and the other for a Sunkist League championship. Both in girls basketball, it should be added. At this point the SkyHawk girls are the jewel of the Summit athletic program, led by a foursome of talented players. They are guard Adrianne Thomas, who is averaging 13 points, six rebounds, six steals and five assists per game; 6-foot-2 center Meghin Williams (12.5 ppg, 10.2 rpg., 3.4 blocks per game); guard Alyssa Domingo (10 ppg., 5.5 apg.); and guard Arielle George (10 ppg., five apg.). Domingo has a five 3-pointer game to her credit this season. It’s all pretty heady stuff for a team with no juniors and seniors and a coach, Onishi, who is only 26 years old. Onishi has been around the basketball block, though, having played at Placentia El Dorado High School, Azusa Pacific University and professionally in England, where she also coached an under-18 women’s team. “We knew this team was going to be talented and it was just a matter of believing in themselves,” Onishi said. “But even we’re a little surprised at what they’ve accomplished. center_img “Our attitude all year long has been that we’re playing against kids who are three years older than us, so we have to work three times as hard as them.” The SkyHawks are averaging 62 points per game and giving up an average of only 40. SPARTANS DEALT BLOW The San Gorgonio boys basketball team appears headed into tonight’s CIF-Southern Section D2AA wild-card game against visiting Murrieta Valley as huge underdogs. As previously reported in The Sun, six key players did not suit up for Friday’s San Andreas League finale against Arroyo Valley, a 70-39 loss. The players were Alex Jacobs, Julian Armon, Rodney Armstrong, Marshan Powell, Regis Knox and Leon Jackson. Athletic director Matt Maeda said Monday to anticipate the same team that competed against Arroyo Valley – which included seven junior varsity call-ups – to play against Murrieta Valley (16-10) tonight. Asked on Tuesday the current status of those missing players from Friday night, Maeda said they are “not on the team.” He responded with a “no comment” when asked for a reason. Those missing six players have accounted for 81 percent of the Spartans’ scoring this season. San Gorgonio, a traditional county power, is 19-7 and finished third in the SAL. CIF WRESTLING ON TAP The CIF-Southern Section Individual Wrestling Championships are Friday and Saturday at six locations. The venues hosting area league tournaments are: Chino Hills High School (Southern Division) – Desert Sky League and Sierra League; Los Osos (Inland Division) – Baseline and Sunkist; Oxnard Pacifica (Northern Division) – Citrus Belt, De Anza and Mt. Baldy; La Quinta HS/La Quinta (Eastern Division) – Mojave River and San Andreas. The meets will determine the individual section champions and the qualifiers for the CIF-Masters Meet, which is the qualifying meet for the CIF-State Meet. UPLAND IS HEALTHY With a team full of all-star talent and championship experience, the Upland girls soccer team is ready to extend its 56-game unbeaten streak and make another CIF title run. But there’s one bit of Kryptonite that can always derail any super-powered team – injuries. Upland coach Kerri Fahres reported that the Highlanders haven’t had to worry about any injury setbacks heading into their first-round CIF D1 home game against Woodbridge on Friday. “We’re 22 strong, ready to go,” she said. HONDA AND … COLONY? Teams participating in the upper division CIF boys basketball playoffs (D1, D2, D3) are all striving to make it to the Honda Center in Anaheim, creating lifelong memories of playing in an 18,000-seat arena. This year’s lower divisions, D4 and D5, are dreaming of a different destination – Ontario. Colony High School will host the four lower division CIF-SS championship games this year on March 1-2. Local squads such as Kaiser, Jurupa Valley and Ontario Christian (No. 2 seed in D4AA) and Twentynine Palms (No. 1 in D4A) have the best shots at playing in “The Thunderdome.” ALL-SUN TEAMS The All-Sun teams are beginning to take shape.

Myanmar’s monks on the march warned by government

first_imgAlso on Monday, the White House weighed in with the threat of additional sanctions against the Myanmar regime and those who provide it with financial aid. President George W. Bush is expected to announce the sanctions today at the U.N. General Assembly. The United States restricts imports and exports and financial transactions with Myanmar, also known as Burma. U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon urged authorities in Myanmar to exercise restraint in the face of the protests and expressed hope the military-led government would “seize this opportunity” to include all opposition groups in the political process. The current protests began Aug. 19 after the government sharply raised fuel prices in what is one of Asia’s poorest countries. But they are based in deep-rooted dissatisfaction with the repressive military government that has ruled the country in one form or another since 1962. “I don’t like the government,” a 20-year-old monk participating in the protest in the central city of Mandalay, told The Associated Press. “The government is very cruel and our country is full of troubles.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! YANGON, Myanmar – Myanmar’s military government issued a threat Monday to the barefoot Buddhist monks who led 100,000 people marching through a major city in the strongest protests against the repressive regime for two decades. The warning shows the increasing pressure the junta is under to either crack down on or compromise with a reinvigorated democracy movement. The monks have taken their traditional role as the conscience of society, backing the military into a corner from which it may lash out again. The authorities did not stop the protests Monday, even as they built to a scale and fervor that rivaled the pro-democracy uprising of 1988 when the military fired on peaceful crowds and killed thousands, terrorizing the country. The government has been handling the monks gingerly, wary of raising the ire of ordinary citizens in this devout, predominantly Buddhist nation. However, on Monday night the country’s religious affairs minister appeared on state television to accuse the monks of being manipulated by the regime’s domestic and foreign enemies. Meeting with senior monks at Yangon’s Kaba Aye Pagoda, Brig. Gen. Thura Myint Maung said the protesting monks represented just 2 percent of the country’s population. He suggested that if senior monks did not restrain them, the government would act according to its own regulations, which he did not detail. last_img read more

School threats bring more cops

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card Lancaster deputies and district officials will be at the command post to answer questions and respond to concerns of parents. Traffic units from the Lancaster and Palmdale stations and the California Highway Patrol will conduct a traffic enforcement operation on roads surrounding the campus Tuesday morning. “They will be looking for people who shouldn’t be around at the campus at that time,” Brown said. A 12-member Partners Against Crime deputy team from Palmdale will serve as a roving mobile unit that can be quickly deployed to other schools if they need help. A Crime Impact Team from Los Angeles with deputies trained in responding to incidents will patrol the area around Quartz Hill High. QUARTZ HILL – Extra sheriff’s deputies will be on patrol Tuesday at Quartz Hill High School, where two former students – now behind bars – had threatened a Columbine-style attack on Valentine’s Day. About 35 officers will be part of a law enforcement presence that includes a command post at the school, extra traffic enforcement around the campus, and special teams of deputies from Palmdale and Los Angeles that can respond to incidents at any schools. “The message is, this will be one of the safest school days at Quartz Hill High School,” Sgt. Darrel Brown said. Law enforcement personnel will begin setting up operations beginning at midnight Monday, and a command post will be set up at 7 a.m. next to the football field at 6300 Ave. L, Brown said. In all, the Quartz Hill High School Valentine’s Day Operation, as it has been named, will involve about 35 law enforcement officers, Brown said. District administrators and sheriff’s officials from the Lancaster station met and developed a comprehensive plan to respond to different kinds of scenarios. “We believe it will be a safe day and kids should be attending school,” Superintendent David Vierra said. “Maybe it looks like we’ve gone through great lengths to assure the safety of the kids, but that’s been our mission since we started this plan,” Brown said. Two boys, ages 16 and 17, were arrested in December and have denied charges in Juvenile Court – the equivalent of entering not-guilty pleas in adult court – in connection with the alleged plot. The boys, who sheriff’s deputies said dressed in the Goth style characterized by black clothing and nail polish, said they felt ostracized at Quartz Hill High and wanted to get revenge. A third boy, 16, was taken into custody last week and charged in connection with the plot. A student at Quartz Hill, prosecutors said he made threats to two students during a Jan. 28 telephone call that he wanted to carry out the other two boys’ alleged plot. All three remain in custody. Their names have not been released because of their ages. Rumors of a planned attack at Quartz Hill on Jan. 13, which was also Friday the 13th, scared hundreds of students away from school that day. There were no violent incidents on campus, in spite of the rumors. The massacre at Columbine High School in Jefferson County, Colo., occurred April 20, 1999, when students Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold went on a shooting rampage, killing 12 students and a teacher and wounding 24 others before committing suicide.
