GECOM Chair should be more assertive, vigilant – Jagdeo

first_imgOpposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo believes that Chairperson of the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM), ret’d Justice Claudette Singh has to be more assertive and vigilant when it comes to affairs of the body.Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo“If you ask me if she should be a bit more affirmative and strong, I’ll say yes,” Jagdeo told reporters at his weekly press conference on Thursday where he lamented on issues at the Elections Commission and the lack of assertiveness on the part of the Chair.According to the Opposition Leader, there is a heightened sense of worry among Guyanese about rigged elections, given Guyana’s history and the fact that several of the key players of the past under the People’s National Congress (PNC) Government now hold prominent positions in the current APNU/AFC coalition Administration.To this end, Jagdeo contended that the GECOM Chair has to play a more assertive role in quelling these concerns.“I think the Chairperson of the Commission, who came into office with enormous goodwill on the part of all Guyanese, has a special role to play in ensuring that Guyanese are not in this state of disquiet and she needs to allay their concerns about: one, about there being a process in GECOM itself that could lead to their disenfranchisement; two, about concerns about rigged elections and actions that could lead to an elections petition,” he stated.Jagdeo stressed that these assurances have to come from the Chair herself, either through regular press statements issued by her or through regular press conferences, as Guyana moves closer to the March 2, 2020 General and Regional Elections.He highlighted the fact that at the end of every weekly statutory meeting, the GECOM Commissioners are the ones updating the Guyanese public on happenings at GECOM and there are serious concerns about the confusion that initiates. That said, he stressed that the sole source of “credible information” has to be the GECOM Chairperson.Clarity neededThe Government-nominated GECOM Commissioners have been pushing to have some 28,000 Guyanese voters removed from the voters’ list once it is compiled, on the ground that they were registered as voters in 2008 but have not uplifted their national identification (ID) cards since then.However, the Opposition Leader pointed to the fact that it was the current GECOM Chair who ruled that the requirement for voters to have a voter ID card in 1997 was ultra vires Articles 59 and 159 of the Constitution (despite a parliamentary agreement to use the cards) when Esther Pereira, a PNC supporter, petitioned the High Court to set aside the results of the 1997 elections. More recently, he added, Chief Justice Roxane George ruled that removing persons from the voters’ list, using capricious reasoning, is illegal.“As soon as this proposal came up, she should have shut it down, because it is illegal based on her own ruling, as well as the recent ruling from the Chief Justice…still it is a matter for discussion and continued to gain currency in the media,” Jagdeo said.The second proposal, pushed by the Government-nominated GECOM Commissioners, is to highlight the names of eligible Guyanese voters who did not participate in the now-scrapped House-to-House Registration on the Official List of Electors (OLE).According to the Opposition Leader, “It should have been shut down immediately and not given oxygen – creating worrying that voters could be subjected to the caprices of Presiding Officers come Election Day…this is illegal and discriminatory.”He went on to point out that it was GECOM that scrapped the House-to-House Registration – preventing all Guyanese from registering – and therefore it cannot now force Guyanese voters who did not participate in the House-to-House Registration to be singled out for ‘special’ treatment.Furthermore, Jagdeo spoke about comments made by Government Commissioner Charles Corbin, who told reporters after Tuesday’s statutory meeting that there was a decision to publish the list of over 300,000 persons registered during the now-scrapped House-to-House Registration on Thursday’s date.“First off there was no such decision…this is another hurdle to cross….we are not even clear on what they are going to publish,” he contended.It must be explained, the Opposition Leader outlined, how this publication – a list of 300,000-plus, additional names to the Preliminary List of Electors – will be situated within Guyana’s legal architecture. He argued that the only known statutory process to conduct Claims and Objections is through the publication of a Preliminary List of Electors (PLE). He further explained that the list of 300,000-plus from House-to-House Registration cannot be considered a supplementary PLE since there will be duplications – that is persons who are on the PLE will also be on the list of 300,000-plus since many persons re-registered during House-to-House Registration.The Opposition Leader underscored the absence of clarity from the GECOM Chairperson as to how the 300,000-plus registrations will be treated. He also noted that the gathered data was unscrutinised, unverified and was only partially gathered.That said, he stated that the question of merging unverified data from the scrapped House-to-House Registration with the National Register of Registrants Database is still a matter of concern.According to Jagdeo, there are also questions as to whether or not this is even possible and how it can be done without compromising the law, without compromising people’s rights, and without impacting on the integrity of the voters’ list.“If the database is contaminated it will have implications for the timeline of elections….what we are fighting against is inclusion of unverified data before it gets on the Official List of Electors,” Jagdeo said.The Opposition Leader made clear that these issues should not be matters that are allowed to confuse the Guyanese people. He stressed that “Without decisions from the GECOM Chairperson, what we will continue to have distortions…GECOM has an obligation to keep Guyanese informed”.AssertiveIn addition to ensuring that confusion is not the order of the day, Jagdeo stressed that there are also other areas where the GECOM Chairperson must act decisively and be assertive.These include a decision on having an international presence within the GECOM Secretariat to ensure that the voters’ list is not compromised and to ensure that no Guyanese voter is compromised, among other things. He said, “At the end of the day, she is overall in charge [of GECOM] and I thought by now, she would want to have second opinions, more people looking out to see if everything is done properly if they want free and fair elections”.The international community has pledged to provide support to GECOM in carrying out its mandate. This was communicated in a joint statement that featured British High Commissioner Gregory Quinn, United States (US) Ambassador Sarah-Ann Lynch and Head of the European Union (EU) Delegation to Guyana, Fernando Ponz Canto.Jagdeo also underscored the need for a decision on an engagement with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), in terms of oversight of GECOM’s Information Technology (IT) department.He said, “Critical going forward is oversight over IT too and the early acceptance and installation of international oversight mechanism. Why we have had these delays on simple decisions so far, I can’t explain. It defies logic that if you want free and fair elections and you want them to be helpful in the discharge of your duties, you should embrace all international support readily…there should be a sense of urgency to get people here now particularly in the IT section, because that’s where the preliminary list and all the other lists are being generated and, therefore, you need oversight now and in this period. I suspect they’re trying to delay oversight until the OLE (Official List of Electors) is created, which could have flaws. But even then, we will ask for an international testing of the list.”The Opposition Leader stressed that the GECOM Chairperson “has an obligation to act” to ensure free and fair elections. “We are constantly watching out for any attempt to tamper with the voters’ list and the elections results,” he assured, adding that the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) is working assiduously with Guyana’s international partners to make sure this does not happen.When pressed by the media on his confidence in the GECOM Chairperson and whether he made a wrong decision in nominating her for the post, Jagdeo made clear that her integrity is not in question.last_img read more

CHP officers out in force

The California Highway Patrol will be out in force, beginning at 6:30 tonight, to target drunken drivers and drivers and passengers not wearing seat belts as they head out on roads and freeways for the three-day Memorial Day weekend. The agency’s “maximum enforcement period” continues through midnight Monday. During the period, the CHP will put extra officers on patrol, said Chief Gary Dominguez, commander of the CHP’s Southern Division. “We’ve got as many officers as we can out on the road,” said Capt. Daniel Miner of the CHP’s Santa Fe Springs office. “We schedule vacations and days off around holidays like this, so we can have as many officers out as possible,” he added. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2Coinciding with this holiday’s maximum enforcement period, the CHP also is operating its “Click It or Ticket” campaign, a national enforcement program targeting drivers and passengers who fail to buckle up. Instead of issuing warnings to violators, officers will immediately cite them for not wearing a seat belt. “Our focus will be on motorists who ignore their safety belts or fail to properly secure children,” Dominguez said. For those who intend to drink alcohol during the holiday, officials warned to designate a sober driver. Just don’t drink and drive, officials said. “The bottom line is, we’re trying to prevent the loss of life on the highways,” said Miner. “Memorial Day is the traditional start of the summer season. We’re trying to prevent tragedies this weekend.”last_img read more

Young writer to publish 18th book

first_imgYoung Khulekani Magubane is about tosee the publication of his 18th book.(Image: Khulekani Magubane) The Dancing Pencils project encouragesboth young and old to write.(Image: umSinsi Press) Youngsters are given the chance to spreadtheir creative wings.(Image: umSinsi Press)RELATED ARTICLES• Local author gets top sci-fi award • West End beckons for playwrights• Commonwealth nod to SA writer• Author, 16, is SA’s youngestShamin ChibbaIt’s no wonder Khulekani Magubane has produced 17 books by the age of 22. The young man possesses energy, something all good writers need. You can hear it in his tone, which is quick, sharp and electric.Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Herman Melville and more recently, Jonathan Safran Foer, were precocious artists who produced some of their best work in their twenties. And while Magubane might not yet have reached those heights, he is certainly similarly prolific.Magubane’s 18th book is due for publication later in the year. The thriller, titled McClew Brothers: Dark Maiden, follows a trio of detective brothers as they try to solve the case of missing priceless artwork.Magubane, who comes from the small town of Estcourt in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands, gains his inspiration from his surroundings, which he says teems with interesting stories and people.“I based a lot of my characters on the colourful personalities that come from Estcourt,” he said.The young wordsmith’s keen observation of social phenomena allows him to incorporate topical issues such as HIV/Aids and crime into his stories. He takes real-life tales and interprets them from his own perception.“I have a passion for telling stories. I am one of those people who have a lot to say. Issues that I care about tend to make better stories.”Developing literacy and local writing talentMagubane’s books are mainly targeted at teenagers and young adults. He has been published by Felicity Keats since he was a teenager.Keats founded her company umSinsi Press in 1995. The niche publishing group prints and distributes books written by members of the Dancing Pencils writing project, which aims to uncover local talent and promote literacy through mentorship, skills transfer and use of the mother tongue.Members of the group are able to develop their creative skills and get useful feedback in a safe working environment. Online courses are also on offer.The best stories are selected for publication, and are sold through various outlets including Kalahari.net, Amazon UK, and the umSinsi website.There is no discrimination – no matter the topic, if the story is good enough it stands a chance of being published. The group’s oldest author is 94, and the youngest is a tender five years of age.Magubane discovered Keats through the Dancing Pencils project while in high school.Values, virtues and a support systemOne of Magubane’s greatest influences was his mother, Sethembile. As a priest, she laid the religious foundation in her son’s life. And as a poet and trained Dancing Pencils mentor, she inspired Magubane’s foray into writing.He was the last of four children – he has one brother and two sisters – and grew up in a deeply religious home.Despite this, Magubane does not regard himself as merely a religious person, but instead as one who has taken personal steps towards building a relationship with God. This, he said, is why he calls himself a born-again Christian.These values have shaped him. Like most precocious people who became successful, he received a lot of support from his parents. His father always drummed into him the importance of education while his mother encouraged him to follow his dreams and to work hard.Amongst the many virtues learnt from his Zulu culture, one stands out.“One thing that I believe should not be forgotten is respect,” he said, referring to respect particularly for elders and people in authoritative positions.He firmly believes that discussion is the one method that can help overcome challenges. The message in many of his books is clear – that unity amongst mankind can be achieved if people learn to understand each other. This, and the sharing of ideas, he believes, can foster mutually beneficial solutions.“I come from an environment where I am encouraged to speak my mind. We always sought discussion to find resolutions,” he said.Writing influencesMagubane looks up to great South African writers such as Zakes Mda, Wilbur Smith and Sifiso Mzobe. Mda’s Black Diamond is the sort of contemporary novel the young author would like to emulate.As for his technique, he does what authors call auto-writing, whereby he writes freely without scrutinising every sentence.However, in spite of his success, he is still prone to feelings of self-doubt and self-worth like many other authors.“There are so many great writers in the world, I sometimes wonder if I should call myself a writer,” he said.Looking aheadFor anyone wanting to be a novelist, Magubane recommends a lot of reading. He also advises them to get their work exposed and read by as many people as possible.“It is daunting but you do not have to be shy. Just get the work out there.”For now, he feels he needs to broaden his circle of fellow writers and learn from them so that he can evolve.He has already completed his journalism degree at the Durban University of Technology and would love to turn it into a career. He currently works for Invo Tech Communications Department and is a freelance writer for Genuine Magazine.Magubane wants to usher in a new generation of South African writers by, one day, establishing his own publishing house that will distribute work by young scribes.With the literary world firmly in his grasp, the energetic Magubane may yet be mentioned amongst the Mdas, Patons and Gordimers as one of South Africa’s foremost writers.last_img read more

What do smart cities of the future look like?

first_imgHow IoT Will Play an Important Role in Traffic … Tags:#CES2017#Internet of Things#IoT#panasonic#Smart Cities Kristy Dalton Related Posts How Connected Communities Can Bolster Your Busi…center_img I just returned from the Consumer Electronics Show (#CES2017)  in Las Vegas, and I can tell you that it is a very exciting time for cities and states to invest in smart technologies! The team at Panasonic invited me (aka GovGirl) to cover their exhibit, and I’m thrilled that government agencies were a central part of their “future infrastructure” concept.Panasonic is known for unveiling consumer technologies at CES, including high end audio and photography equipment. This year, cities took center stage as the company showcased connected technologies designed to improve the quality of life for citizens.Check out my recap video of what I saw at CES:Want to be a #smartcity? It really starts with smart infrastructure. Why have one technology that talks to just one system when you can have connected technologies that integrate with the overall infrastructure?Panasonic has partnered with the City of Denver over the past year, and recently the Colorado Department of Transportation, to bring the concept of smart cities and smart highways to a reality. Check out footage from the #PanasonicCES press conference, where they invited Mayor Hancock of Denver and the director of the Colorado DOT onstage to unveil their projects.Have you seen the recent viral dash cam video of a smart car predicting a crash two cars ahead? Think of all the ways smart cars and infrastructure could impact our cities. One of the concepts behind smart transportation is that sensors in vehicles could communicate with other vehicles, pedestrians and the overall smart infrastructure in order to predict and avoid crashes. The number I’m hearing is that traffic accidents could potentially be reduced by 80 percent!In the Panasonic booth, I got to see other smart city technology up close. Plans for a smart bus shelter are pretty impressive. Government agencies want citizens to use public transportation because it reduces traffic congestion, accidents and smog, among many other reasons. However, public transportation is typically underused. Citizens just don’t have a high expectation of the user experience. Enter the smart bus shelter. While waiting for your bus, you’ve got WiFi, charging outlets and a touch screen display where you can see where your bus is in real-time. If your bus is running late, you can schedule an Uber right from the touch interface. This concept shelter comes equipped with security cameras that are designed to feed into the central command center that gives the city one interface to monitor their connected devices.Add in smart parking meters that allow citizens to find open spaces and feed the meter via an app, and also smart streetlights that dim to save energy when pedestrians and vehicles aren’t around – and you’ve got a truly connected community!Here is a Facebook Live video that I shot while visiting the CES exhibit:To access additional videos on Panasonic’s transportation initiatives, see this site.

301 Days Between Books

first_imgThe publication date of my first book was October 11th, 2016. The publication date of my second book, The Lost Art of Closing: Winning the 10 Commitments That Drive Sales, is August 8th, 2017.The publication date of my first book was October 11th, 2016. The publication date of my second book, The Lost Art of Closing: Winning the 10 Commitments That Drive Sales, is August 8th, 2017.The October release date of book one was six days after my birthday, depriving me of the ability to say I published my first book at an age that was one year younger than the actual age I was when the book was published. The August release date of The Lost Art of Closing is one day before my Mom’s birthday, depriving me of publishing the book on her birthday.There are exactly 301 days between the release dates of these two books. That’s a pretty fast clip. For reasons I was never told, the release date for The Lost Art of Closing was moved up from October, 2017 to August, 2017. I never had the chance to ask why it was moved, and no one at the publisher has ever shared with me any more than the changed deadlines.There are a few reasons I was able to write and publish two books this quickly.First, I have been writing every day for many years now, and I can now write faster—and sometimes better—than when I started writing. Writing is like a muscle, and putting that muscle to work daily builds the capacity to do more work.Second, when you write and spend time in a domain, you tend to develop a lot of content. You make certain distinctions that you wouldn’t otherwise make, and you see things that wouldn’t get your attention if you weren’t writing down your observations. The content in both books was developed over a long period of time and written in a shorter one.I also started writing the second book (TLAC) the day I turned in the final manuscript for the first book (TOSG). On the plane ride home from New York City, I wrote the first 4,000 words of The Lost Art of Closing. I was hyped-up to start working on the content I wanted to share. The writing went fast,but the editing was painful. The early reviews have been extremely positive, and that makes the work of marketing the book easier, even though that is the real heavy lifting.Now, how many days until the third book?As I type these words, I have five outlines on my computer. I have an outline for a book about how to become a trusted advisor and how to sell now, in the 21st Century. It’s a very prescriptive book. The second outline is a book on how to coach salespeople, but with principles that apply across domains. The third outline is for a book on productivity, or how to work in an age of accelerating, disruptive, constant change. The fourth outline is for a book on leadership. The final outline is The Hustler’s Playbook, my thoughts on success that originally started as ideas I was sharing with my three children.I haven’t decided in what order I am going to write these books, and I have no idea what the publisher is going to want from me, but they are all going to be written, and they are all going to be published.

Bidesh XI SC and Albert Developers Win on Day 1 of Goa Women’s League 2019

first_imgNew Delhi: The Goa Women’s League finally began with just four teams on Saturday and will serve as the state qualifiers for the next season of Indian Women’s League.

Celebrities dont need to work hard on their looks: Sidharth

first_imgMumbai, Apr 3 (PTI) Many Bollywood stars might swear by the effect of makeovers on their careers but actor Sidharth Malhotra feels celebrities dont need to experiment with their look and style to get noticed as they are already known faces.The 31-year-old “Kapoor & Sons” star said when it comes to experimenting with his clothes and looks, he prefers to stay minimal and simple.”I feel as a celebrity we get a lot of opportunities to experiment with our looks in movies. I dont think a celebrity needs to work really hard on the way they look as they are already public figures.”They dont need such things to get noticed. The most experimental I have gone till now is when few days back I wore an all white suit,” Sidharth told PTI.The actor was speaking on the sidelines of Lakme Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2016.He walked the ramp as showstopper for Kunal Rawal and the look the designer gave to him was something very unlike his usual self.”I have a lot of Kunals creations, but I was walking for him for the first time and was expecting that he will give me something crazy to wear. But I am surprised he has played so sober this time. I am surely going to sport such look soon,” Sidharth said.Wearing a beige kurta along with matching pants and army green coloured jacket Sidharth looked dapper yet edgy. Kunal, who was equally excited to have him as his showstopper said the actor had the boldness and class which complimented his creation perfectly.advertisementTitled “Between The Lines”, the collection took inspiration from racer stripes, pin tucks and pleats with fun colour palette including shades of vanilla, oxblood, wine, cobalt, champagne and forest green.Fabrics like linens, muslins and silks will made the canvas for the solid and embroidered garments which were traditional with a contemporary twist.Other celebrities to attend the show were Arjun Kapoor, who came along with his sister Anshula, Dino Morea, Jackky Bhagnani, Sonakshi Sinha, Ayan Mukerji, “Fugly” actor Mohit Marwah, Pernia Qureshi and producer Ramesh Taurani.
