Elections must be held within 3 months from NCM June 18 confirmation

first_imgCCJ President Justice Adrian SaundersCCJ consequential orders…APNU/AFC Govt in caretaker mode…GECOM must comply with ConstitutionIn bringing finality to the legal proceedings on the consolidated No-Confidence Motion (NCM) cases, the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) on Friday ordered that the APNU/AFC coalition Government resign and call general elections within three months of its June 18 confirmation of the passage of the NCM in the National Assembly, in adherence to the constitutional provisions.Without naming a date for elections, CCJ President Justice Adrian Saunders insisted that the Constitution is clear and, therefore, the December 21, 2018 passage of the No-Confidence Motion triggered Articles 106 (6) and (7) which lucidly spells out the date.Article 106 (6) of the Constitution 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: “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 not 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”.According to Justice Saunders, there was no need for the Court to gloss over these provisions but it is in fact the responsibility of the constitutional actors to be faithful to the rule of law and operate within parameters of the Constitution.“Upon the passage of a vote of no confidence, the Article requires the resignation of the Cabinet including the President. The Article goes on to state, among other things, that notwithstanding its defeat, the Government shall remain in office and that an election shall be held within three months, or such longer period as the National Assembly shall by resolution supported by not less than two-thirds of the votes of all the elected members of the National Assembly determine”.Furthermore, the CCJ President noted that with the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM also responsible for the conduction of elections, it, therefore, means that the elections body “too must abide by the provisions of the Constitution”.He went on to point out that elections should have been held on March 21, 2019 following the December passage of the Opposition-sponsored motion, but that process was on “pause” pending the legal proceedings. That process, he added, however, was no longer on pause following the Court’s June 18, 2019 ruling, which upheld the validity of the NCM, thus, triggering the need for fresh elections. This means that General and Regional Elections would have to be held on or before September 18, 2019, to be consistent with the three months constitutional deadline.However, Justice Saunders, in delivering the consequential orders, posited that Article 106 outlines the precise timing of when polls should be conducted and, therefore, it would not be right for the Court to issue coercive orders or directives to the actors on how they must act in executing their constitutional responsibilities.“It is not, for example, the role of the Court to establish a date on or by which the elections must be held or to lay down deadlines or timelines that, in principle, are the preserve of political actors guided by constitutional imperative. The Court must assume that these bodies and personages will exercise their responsibilities with integrity and in keeping with the unambiguous provisions of the Constitution, bearing in mind that the No-Confidence Motion was validly pass as long ago as 21st December, 2018”.Against this backdrop, nevertheless, the CCJ President outlined the cabinet, including the President, should have already been resigned, thus, reaffirming that the APNU/AFC coalition is, in fact, and should be in a caretaker mode leading up to elections.“Article 106 envisaged that the tenure in office of the Cabinet, including the President after the Government’s defeat, is on a different footage from that which existed prior to the vote of no confidence…By convention, the Government is expected to behave, during this interim period, as a caretaker and so restrain the exercise of its legal authority. It is this caretaker or interim role that explains the three month deadline in the first instance that the Article lays down in principle for the holding of fresh elections,” Justice Saunders stated.Furthermore, the Trinidad-based regional Court, in its consequential orders, also awarded costs to Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo and former AFC Member of Parliament Charrandas Persaud, whose vote in favour of the Opposition’s motion caused the coalition Government to topple. The CCJ had ruled that while Persaud was ineligible to sit in the National Assembly because of his dual citizenship status, his vote was nevertheless valid.Additionally, the Court also ordered that Christopher Ram, who approach the Courts to have the Government uphold the Constitution by resigning and call fresh elections, be paid 60 per cent of his cost.These costs are to be taxed, if not agreed, and will have to be paid by the Attorney General.last_img read more

L.A. dog-bark response needs fix

first_imgA dog poisoning in the San Fernando Valley recently evoked surprising responses of empathy for the perpetrator, who was reportedly eliminating a long-standing barking problem. Anyone who has experienced days and nights of living near a constantly barking dog can sympathize with the mental and emotional debilitation and extended sleeplessness which often result in physical illness. Still, it is shocking when obviously caring, responsible animal lovers say they can understand being driven to the point of murdering “man’s best friend.” California law has long protected residents against neighbors who create undue noise or other nuisances. At issue is more than just personal comfort, but also property values. The California realty transfer form, for example, requires agents to disclose any influence that could negatively affect the livability of a property sold. In order to avoid any future liability, sellers are obliged to disclose known nuisance situations, – including barking-dog complaints – to potential buyers. Why is it, then, that property owners and renters can’t remedy a nuisance as obvious as a barking dog in the city of Los Angeles – sometimes for months or even years? Los Angeles has 4.9 million people with an estimated 1.2 million dogs living in close proximity to each other. Dogs bark from loneliness – they are pack animals that need companionship. Isolating them in backyards engenders fear because their basic instinct is to bond together for protection. Once they have a human “pack,” they grieve and suffer when separated. Dogs bark when they are tethered, because the forced confinement leaves them vulnerable and robs them of the chance for “flight.” Chaining or tethering also results in greater aggression and barking at any perceived threat. (Recent state and city ordinances prohibit long periods of chaining.) Dogs bark because they have inadequate food, water or shelter – all required by law. And some dogs just like to bark. Even with access to indoor living and modern creature comforts, they assert their existence in the community vocally at every opportunity. Often, too, there are just too many dogs in one household. L.A. city zoning laws allow only three dogs per residential property, but this is not regularly enforced by Animal Services. L.A. Animal Services hearing examiners advise that they are able to stay “current” on their cases, but still the process for an official hearing may easily take four months from the initial complaint. A major cause for additional delay is that the offending dog may not be licensed. Action then must start to license the dog so that a hearing for revocation can be held. There’s also an even greater glitch that can drive those who have pursued legal channels to the point of desperation. The dog owner has the right to appeal any decision. During the appeal period, any determination that would address remedying the barking is stayed. Appeals are required by law to be heard by the L.A. Animal Services Commission within 30 days; however, the average wait can be up to a year, with another 75 days to issue a decision. Once a barking-dog issue comes before the ultraliberal Animal Services Commission, the ensuing discussion strays widely from the facts of the case to a gamut of solutions, up to and including whether the complainant is willing to pay for a dog walker to exercise his neighbor’s yapper and a frequent public declaration by commissioners that, regardless of the facts, barking-dog issues are really neighbor disputes and the animals are not a problem. Rarely is a license revoked. Usually incessant barking is a sign that something is wrong for the dog. It is impossible for a truly loving owner to be oblivious to the distress of a pet on an ongoing basis. Having personally had to file a barking-dog complaint, I know it is true that some owners don’t care enough about either their dogs or their communities to do the right thing. In these cases, the dog should be given the opportunity for better treatment – and so should the neighbors. Phyllis M. Daugherty is director of the Los Angeles Animal Issues Movement. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

Loew clings to Germany job despite disastrous year

first_img0Shares0000Despite his side winning just four of their 13 matches in 2018, Germany’s head coach Joachim Loew has survived © AFP / Patrik STOLLARZGELSENKIRCHEN, Germany, Nov 20 – Even with his reputation battered by the worst year in German football history and a disastrous World Cup exit, Joachim Loew remains optimistic about Germany’s future in 2019.A 2-2 draw with the Netherlands on Monday, when both Dutch goals came in the final six minutes, plus Thursday’s 3-0 win over Russia do not paper over the cracks of a horrendous year for Loew. The final moments summed up Germany’s year as Dutch captain Virgil Van Dijk volleyed the 91st-minute equaliser.“It was like a bad movie,” admitted Thomas Mueller, who was making his 100th international appearance.Germany won just four of their 13 games in 2018, scoring only 14 goals, yet Loew remains optimistic.“I have a good feeling going into the winter break,” he said despite his team throwing away a 2-0 lead in Gelsenkirchen.“We are well set up for next year with these players, that gives you a lot of courage.”The reason for his optimism is his youthful forwards Leroy Sane, Timo Werner and Serge Gnabry, who have scored four of Germany’s last five goals.Despite Loew’s brave face, the Germans have plummeted from first in the FIFA rankings to a sobering 14th in five months.– Charm offensive –Never before in German FA (DFB) history has the senior team exited a World Cup at the group stages. Loew’s side also suffered a record six defeats in a calendar year.The indignation of Nations League regelation from the ‘A’ division was confirmed long before kick-off against the Dutch, which affected the gate.Only 42,186 fans – two-thirds of the stadium’s capacity – watched the draw and the viewing figures of 8.5 million were relatively low.“One cannot expect the fans to run to us after a year like this,” said Loew.In a bid to win back disgruntled fans, the DFB launched a charm offensive.A public training session was held in Berlin last month and children asked the questions at a press conference, held in a Leipzig school, before the win over Russia.However, the World Cup debacle, Mesut Ozil’s dramatic resignation from the German team – citing “racism and disrespect” – and a flood of defeats left many fans wanting Loew to resign.Loew, who has a contract until 2022, has been given a relatively easy ride.“We’ve gone from Number One in the world to being happy about a close win over Peru and success against a Russian ‘B’ team,” commented German magazine Der Spiegel under the headline: ‘How Loew can you go?’“This is a sobering record and you can also say, disastrous.“However, the coach remains and will not be significantly challenged.Germany’s forward Leroy Sane (L), who was outstanding in Gelsenkirchen, and Netherlands’ defender Virgil van Dijk (R) both scored in Monday’s stunning 2-2 draw, which was enough to put the Dutch into the Nations League’s semi-finals.“There is no real debate about Joachim Loew. And you have to ask yourself: why not?”– Second chance –The answer is that after 12 successful years, when reached the semi-finals of every major tournament between 2006 and 2017, winning the 2014 World Cup, Loew has earned a second chance.“Everyone can see that ‘Jogi’ has a plan which we are following through. Something is growing here,” insisted Sane, who shone in Monday’s draw.The Manchester City starlet – the Premier League’s best young player last season – was a curious omission from the World Cup squad, but not being part of the shambles in Russia did him no harm.A 3-0 thrashing by the Dutch in Amsterdam in October finally convinced Loew to abandon trust in under-performing stars.With Ozil retired, Sami Khedira and Jerome Boateng were dropped while Mueller is now just a sub.Loew has not closed the door on his 2014 Brazil winners for next year’s Euro 2020 qualifiers.Timo Werner scored but was not on the field as Germany threw away a two goal lead © AFP / Patrik STOLLARZ“Having only young or old players will not be successful, it’s a mix that makes it,” Loew insisted.However, his baffling decision to take off Sane, Werner and Gnabry for the last 30 minutes on Monday back-fired badly as their more experienced replacements failed to help hold the lead.Loew can ill afford similar mistakes in 2019.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

FORMER TOP DONEGAL GARDA WINS LIBEL CASE AGAINST IRISH MAIL ON SUNDAY

first_imgFORMER Garda Superintendent Kevin Lennon has won a substantial libel settlement with a newspaper company.The former Donegal Garda won an apology from Ireland on Sunday – now known as the Irish Mail on Sunday – over an article published in 2003.An apology on behalf of Associated Newspapers was read out to Carrick on Shannon court which said: “On March 9th 2003 Ireland on Sunday reported on civil proceedings against the State in which a claim was made that Superintendent Kevin Lennon had an affair with Josephine Jackson.” Mr Lennon had at all times denied the allegation and the publication said in court “We accept this.”The apology went on: “We did not intend to suggest that Mr Lennon had such an affair. We unreservedly withdraw any such suggestion. We wish to apologise to Mr Lennon and regret the distress the article caused to him and his family.” In a statement Mr Lennon, who was an inspector in Letterkenny at the time of the article, said: “The offending article as published was not alone an attack on me personally, but also on my wife and children and our extended family.“No words can express the sheer devastation that this false circulation had upon my wife and children.“The newspaper Ireland on Sunday were made well aware that the story had no truth prior to its publication. Nevertheless, they proceeded with their publication and have sought over nine years to defend it.”Mr Lennon said Ireland on Sunday used “gutter” journalism and attacked him and his family.He went on: “I am happy to have had the opportunity despite the delay involved to have corrected this untruth published about me. However, I have never had an opportunity to, in any meaningful way, defend or vindicate the very serious allegations and findings against me as a former member of An Garda Siochana.“There are very fundamental and serious issues which have never been investigated and which should be properly and fully investigated in the public interest involving still serving members of An Garda Siochana.“The public have been conditioned by events and I have been scapegoated in a very deliberate fashion.“I will continue to fight as best I can to vindicate and correct incorrect findings made against me.”He paid tribute to his family for “their unbending loyalty and support.”He also thanked his legal team John McNulty and Barrister Keith O’Grady of Kevin P.

‘It would be world domination for Liverpool if they replace Dejan Lovren’

first_img 2 gameday cracker 2 possible standings Micky Quinn believes Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren is the only thing standing between the Reds and total ‘world domination’.Quinn, talkSPORT’s Sports Breakfast co-host, is a famous Liverpool fan, and he’s excited for the Premier League season to start after a great summer for the Reds. England’s most successful clubs of the past decade, according to trophies won Every current Premier League club’s best kit from the past decade Top nine Premier League free transfers of the decade Having reached last term’s Champions League final, Jurgen Klopp, the Liverpool manager, has worked hard to improve his already brilliant squad, with the most glaringly weak areas strengthened.The Reds’ midfield has become one of the best in Europe with the additions of Naby Keita and Fabinho, while Xherdan Shaqiri, signed from Stoke, provides some much-needed cover in the attacking positions.However, no deal has made as much an impact as the signing of Alisson, the Brazil goalkeeper, from Roma. Loris Karius almost single-handedly lost Liverpool the Champions League final, and now the Reds have gone from having one of the worst glovesman in the Premier League top 10, to one of the top three in the entire division. “I’m excited now for this coming season,” Quinn said on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.“Don’t forget we got Virgil van Dijk in in January, so he’s bedded in now.“We’ve got goals up front, a midfield to die for, Trent [Alexander-Arnold] at right-back and [Andy] Robertson at left-back, and a goalkeeper at last!“Dejan Lovren is the weakest link.
