Nimba Lawmaker Pleads for Reelection

first_imgNimba County District # 6 Representative, Ricks Toweh, has appealed to people of the county to re-elect him and his colleagues serving in the House.Speaking recently in the town of Flumpa in Nimba during a fund raising rally for a community radio station, Rep. Toweh said, “Our eyes are open now.  We did not know how the whole House of Representatives operates, but we have seen what happens there and will no longer be strangers to it.  Please give us the second term so we can pursue what you need to have.”Rep. Toweh (District #6), who was invited by Rep. Larry P. Younquoi (District # 8),  called on the people of district # 8 to consider re-electing Rep. Younquoi, promising that he along with the rest of them will deliver to Nimbaians what they deserve.The appeal by the Nimba District #6 lawmaker comes in the midst of criticisms and plans by citizens of the county to get most of them out come 2017 because of alleged failure to deliver what they promised.People of the county usually express on community radio stations that their lawmakers have failed them by allegedly misapplying their social and county development funds.Six of them won their seats through the influence of Senator Prince Johnson, but since their election in 2011, they and Senator Johnson had fallen apart over principles.Currently in Nimba it is widely believed that Senator Thomas Grupee has paid some Monrovia-based Nimba youths, headed by Daniel Bleh, to honor him (Grupee) during an occasion to discuss development and reconciliation.One Calvin Wonda has disclosed on a local radio in Ganta that Senator Grupee had paid US$2,000 to them to honor him. Wonda said he would not participate in such an event because it is “deceitful.”Daniel Bleh, who is heading the group, has confirmed that they are to honor Senator Grupee but not on the basis of financial influence.In response to a question about what could be his achievement, Rep. Toweh boasted of adequately representing his people and carrying on oversight responsibility as enshrined in the Constitution of Liberia.Meanwhile, Rep. Lester Paye of (District # 4, Bong County) has called on the electorate to evaluate properly which candidates to vote for on the basis of their achievements and not on sectionalism, tribalism or nepotism.Rep. Paye said by now Liberians should know who has truly represented them and they must vote for those whose performance has positively impacted on their lives.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

MPs should, first and foremost, represent the interests of their constituents

first_imgDear Editor,What can we learn from the most recent phase of the Brexit process in the UK? Mr Anil Nandlall (“Brexit process in UK puts Guyana Gov’t to shame – Monday, September 9) offered one interpretation. I write to offer another, speaking as a layperson.The UK polity is now split into two roughly equal parts (Brexiteers and Remainers). The past fortnight has seen a breakdown of trust between the Executive (Government) and the Legislature (Parliament). The Westminster model envisages an Executive with a healthy majority and the respect of other MPs. Faced with an absent majority, absent trust, absent written Constitution and a belligerent Executive, the model has been stretched to its limits. There has been a noticeable pivot in the balance of power in favour of Parliament: the Opposition parties have combined to flex their legislative muscle in Parliament to force the Government to act in certain ways.The ‘Whip’ system (where MPs are instructed how to cast their votes by their party) has failed on previous occasions and appears to be crumbling. Last week, a clutch of respected Conservative MPs acting in line with their conscience, eschewed blind loyalty to their party, defied the Whips and worked with Opposition MPs to secure the passage of the Benn Bill. It seems that the Whip system and the Prime Minister’s prerogative to prorogue Parliament may emerge diminished from this phase of parliamentary history.Guyana also has a polity divided along roughly equal lines and has had recently a sequence of Administrations with a slim or no majority. The current Administration, having prevaricated relentlessly in the aftermath of the no-confidence vote, has now lost the trust of those who do not support the APNU/AFC coalition. The Opposition has withdrawn from the National Assembly and gridlock looms.Given events in the UK, is it possible that in future our National Assembly might play an amplified role in our decision-making and governance? Might it not be wise to provide for this constitutionally? And to revise some of the more autocratic features of the current set up such as powers to prorogue and the Whip system? If, as seems likely, future Governments here will also only enjoy the support of half of the population, perhaps more Executive power should devolve to the National Assembly (and the parliamentary committees) and MPs should be encouraged to represent, first and foremost, the interests of their constituents.Yours faithfully,Isabelle de Caireslast_img read more

Students give city traffic lesson worth $1 million

first_imgFor months, Rowles and roughly 18 others in a leadership class at Bowman toiled over their PowerPoint presentation. It graphically pictured the risks students face crossing two busy intersections and navigating an active railroad crossing near the school. The group asked city government in mid-February to pave a sidewalk over the train track, paint crosswalks at Golden Oak Road and Golden Triangle Road, and – at Golden Triangle Road and Centre Pointe Parkway – to install speed-limit and stop signs leading to the school. Santa Clarita Councilman Bob Kellar called the students’ effort “thorough and professional.” Crosswalks were painted and signs posted, but until Wednesday students didn’t know more city work might follow. The council, expected to approve the budget in two weeks, gets an “A” from Michael Coombe, Bowman’s associated student body director who oversaw the students’ work. “I was excited to hear the news and to see what we started as a project come to this much fruition,” he said Wednesday. judy.orourke@dailynews.com (661) 257-5255 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! SANTA CLARITA – Bowman High School students who posed traffic safety concerns to the Santa Clarita City Council got way more than a civics grade. Next year’s preliminary city budget, unveiled Tuesday, includes $1million to fix the problems that they described. One student who has since graduated applauded the council’s concern for students’ safety. “I think it’s great the city recognized the school had an issue and took the time to solve the problem,” said Lauren Rowles, 18, among those who had talked to the council. Tuesday’s preview of the city’s 2007-2008 budget included just more than $1million to improve a railroad crossing and sidewalk near the school that pose hazards. last_img read more

What would it be like if Jorge Mendes and Mino Raiola’s players played a game?

first_img Every current Premier League club’s best kit from the past decade Latest Football News Best clips, calls and talkSPORT moments of 2019, feat Hearn, McCoist and more There are some who believe football agents are changing the beautiful game for the worse.But if Jorge Mendes and Mino Raiola were to form an ultimate XI made up of their respective clients, perhaps that would silence some critics. 2 Mendes and Raiola have earned their status as super-agents due to the sheer volume of players they have, as well as the high-profile nature of some on their books.Portuguese Mendes represents a number of huge names including Cristiano Ronaldo, James Rodriguez, Diego Costa and Ederson.Meanwhile, Raiola also has a plethora of talented players including Paul Pogba, Blaise Matuidi, Marco Verratti and Romelu Lukaku.So with this in mind, what would it be like if both Mendes and Raiola devised two teams made up of their players? Below you can see what a Mendes XI (white) v Raiola XI (black) match would look like. What a game this would be! But who would win it?Both teams would be very attack-minded but you’d imagine Mendes’ XI would be a bit better at the back. However, Lukaku and Zlatan Ibrahimovic would be a nightmare for any defence.Mendes’ front line arguably clinches it too, especially with the quality possessed by Ronaldo and Costa. They would also enjoy themselves a lot against the back three of Ignazio Abate, Roberto Ely and Derrick Luckassen.The midfield battle is an intriguing one, however. Mendes’ is without a doubt more stylish but Raiola’s is more athletic and robust in places.We can’t call it! smart causal England’s most successful clubs of the past decade, according to trophies won highlights Mino Raiola has Zlatan Ibrahimovic on his books gameday Tottenham v Brighton LIVE: talkSPORT commentary and team news for Boxing Day opener ALTERED Every Championship club’s best signing of the decade, including Taarabt and Dack possible standings 2 Tottenham predicted XI to face Brighton with Mourinho expected to make big changes How the Premier League table could change after the Boxing Day fixtures impact silverware NEW ERA How Arsenal could line up in Arteta’s first official game in charge – Ozil return? last_img read more
