first_imgThe coalition Government remains firm on its stance that a total of 34 votes are needed for a no-confidence motion to be passed in the National Assembly. This was reiterated on Sunday by Vice President and Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan during an interview on the National Communications Network (NCN) programme titled “Context”.Public Security Minister Khemraj RamjattanThis comes on the heels of Government Member of Parliament (MP) Charrandas Persaud voting (before being expelled) in favour of the motion brought against the Administration by the parliamentary Opposition.However, Minister Ramjattan highlighted that after careful consideration and revision of Article 106 of the Constitution, the Government has decided to challenge the motion. He noted that there were precedents as it relates to the passage of a no-confidence motion that the Government intended to build its argument on, come January 3, 2019.“In view of what happened on the 21st when the Speaker of the House indicated that he is going to adjourn Parliament to deal with the consequences, we have decided that we are going to argue the case that it has not been a threshold figure that was arrived at,” Minister Ramjattan stated.He further explained that “once the threshold figure is arrived at and we are now arguing it is 34 as against 33, then Article 106 is triggered, meaning that the elections must be held within a 90-day period; however, we are saying that will have to now be determined by the Speaker because the internal arrangement of the House is headed by the Speaker and if the Speaker determines there is clearly a mistake in relation to computation of what the threshold level is and that could be corrected… we feel that is the way to go.”The Minister said that he recognised that immediately after the motion was passed, there were statements by President David Granger and Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo accepting the outcome of the motion. However, he pointed out that based on the context of what took place, the statements were necessary based on what the Government had felt at that time.Nevertheless, he said that upon realising that a mistake was made and that the Constitution must not be subverted by a miscalculation, it has to be remedied.The question of why only now 34 votes are needed to pass a motion when there is an internal parliamentary precedent of 33 votes being a majority since 2011 was posed to the Minister, who explained that the same was not required for a motion of this nature.“There is a distinction, because there is an article in our Constitution that says that bills and motions can be passed save and except otherwise provided, by a simple majority of those present and voting… a confidence or no-confidence motion is a different motion above all else as the Constitution made mention,” Minister Ramjattan explained.The Minister was making a distinction between Article 168 (1) and Article 106 (6) of the Constitution which states, “Save as otherwise provided by this Constitution, all questions proposed for decision in the National Assembly shall be determined by a majority of votes of the members present and voting” and “the Cabinet including the President shall resign if the government is defeated by the vote of a majority of all elected members of the National Assembly on a vote of confidence” respectively.Minister Ramjattan further clarified that half of 65 is 32.5 which is then rounded to 33, making 33 and one half which then makes 34 the majority, according to the Department of Public Information (DPI).The Minister said this is why Article 106 (6) is listed in the Constitution. “It is important that people just do not follow through as what is regarded as simplicity. The law is the law and that is why the Constitution made an exception to Article 168 by having Article 168 drafted the way it is and also now, save and except this Article 106 (6).”last_img read more

first_imgEmbattled Argentina coach Jorge Sampaoli had promised an “aggressive, attacking” approach from his side.But his fears over the superior speed of the French strikers were quickly proven right when Mbappe sprinted from his own half until he was hauled down by Marcos Rojo.Antoine Griezmann coolly converted the 13th minute penalty.But Mbappe’s PSG teammate Angel Di Maria levelled with a 41st minute long-range stunner and the South Americans were back in what was proving a superb match.Argentina took a 2-1 lead minutes after the restart when Gabriel Mercado clipped Messi’s low curling shot past Hugo Lloris, but that was Messi’s only real contribution in the match.Defender Benjamin Pavard’s stunning half-volley levelled for France on 57 minutes and as Argentina lost hope, Mbappe struck in the 64th and 68th minute to seal France’s place in the last eight.The last time France lost a World Cup game after taking the lead was in 1982, against Poland.Argentine had calls for first-half penalties too when the ball skimmed Samuel Umtiti’s arm, then when Messi tumbled as he was played into the area, were waved away.France had looked in control, but the stakes changed dramatically minutes before the interval.Cristian Pavon, on the left flank, found Di Maria unmarked 25 yards out from goal and he unleashed a thunderbolt that flew past a diving Lloris and into the top right-hand corner.Di Maria, one of several Albiceleste players criticised for underperfoming in their group games, made amends by setting up Argentina’s second.Billed as Messi’s chance to reignite stuttering Argentina’s hopes, the thrilling last 16 clash in Kazan instead saw 19-year-old Paris Saint-Germain star Mbappe grab the limelight as he became the youngest player since Pele in 1958 to score two goals in a World Cup match.He twisted and turned on the left side of the area to win a free kick, after Pavard’s tug, and when Banega’s free kick was cleared by Pogba it fell to Messi.His curled shot looked innocuous, but Mercado stuck a foot out to wrong-footed Lloris.Minutes later, Les Bleus were level, Pavard matching Di Maria’s effort with a superbly-struck half-volley with the outside of his right boot that spun past Argentina ‘keeper Franco Armani after Blaise Matuidi’s wayward cross found the Stuttgart defender.Despite a late consolation for Argentinan when Sergio Aguero headed Messi’s superb long cross past Lloris in stoppage time, Mbappe had already well and truly stolen the show.When Matuidi’s shot was blocked just after the hour, Mbappe was on hand to restore France’s lead with a low shot past Armani.Four minutes later the teenager ran on to Olivier Giroud’s perfect pass on a France counter to drive it low past Armani and spark mass celebrations on the French bench.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Kyllian Mbappe celebrates one of his two goals during the World Cup Round of 16 match against Argentina on June 30, 2018.

first_img0Shares0000Title contenders Senegal need a point from their final group game to be assured a place in the knockout phase © AFP/File / JAVIER SORIANOCAIRO, Egypt, Jun 30 – Coach Aliou Cisse believes Senegal will back up their status as the continent’s top-ranked side after a stuttering start to their bid for a first Africa Cup of Nations title.Senegal began their campaign in Egypt with an easy 2-0 win over Tanzania but were far from their best in a 1-0 loss to Group C rivals Algeria. A draw against Kenya in their final match in Cairo would send the Teranga Lions through to the last 16 where they would face the runners-up from Egypt’s group, in which all four teams are in still contention.“I’m not the type to call everything into question in four days, I’m someone who is very balanced. There are things which haven’t worked but that’s no reason to start a revolution in the space of four days,” Cisse told reporters Sunday.“We’ve been number one in Africa for three years and we went to the 2018 World Cup. It’s our first defeat in four years on the continental stage. I don’t think a team that lacked mental strength would have achieved such a run.”Cisse, the captain of the side that lost the 2002 final to Cameroon on penalties, snapped back at comments from Kenya coach Sebastien Migne suggesting Senegal had a tradition of buckling under pressure when the stakes are high.“I think my counterparts have a tendency to speak about us. Take care of themselves, take care of their own teams. What does he know about the Senegalese mentality? What does he know about our people? How can he say we don’t have the mental strength?” Cisse countered.He also slammed the performance of Zambian referee Janny Sikazwe in the wake of the Algeria defeat, in which Sadio Mane had a strong penalty appeal dismissed.“I don’t want to come back to the refereeing which I found, today I will say it, really catastrophic and unacceptable,” said Cisse. “There are things I don’t want to say about the refereeing because I would be suspended, but there comes a point when you have to protect the integrity of our players.”0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_imgMilitary forces can assist during times of disaster relief once the president declares a state of emergency. Under specific direction of the president, military forces can help to suppress insurrections and rebellions or quell domestic violence. National Guard forces acting under a state governor’s control don’t face any of the law’s restrictions. Guardsmen on the border will be exempt from the law for two reasons. First, they won’t technically be “federal,” even though the federal government will be footing the bill, because they’ll remain under the control of the governor of the state they’re in. Second, they won’t be enforcing any laws – just acting in a supporting role. “We don’t intend to use the forces for law enforcement,” Assistant Secretary of Defense Paul McHale said on a radio program Tuesday. “So both in terms of what we intend to do and the status of the National Guard in which they do it, Posse Comitatus is not a limitation.” Larsen said given that the assignment won’t require law enforcement duty, the “Army could just as easily do it.” “If you’re just putting them in a logistical role, there’s absolutely no difference whatsoever,” Larsen said. Still, some critics of placing guardsmen at the border say the move tramples on the spirit of the law and fear possible consequences. In past situations when military members have been legally moved into traditional police roles, their lack of police training has led to tragedy, they say. They cite the 1970 Kent State shootings, when Ohio National Guard troops killed four people, or more recently, an incident in 1997, when a Marine assisting in anti-drug efforts along the border shot and killed an American goat herder. “Turning immigration enforcement into another military operation is not the answer,” Anthony D. Romero, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union, said this week. “The president’s proposed deployment of National Guard troops violates the spirit of the Posse Comitatus Act.” jason.newell@dailybulletin.com (909) 483-9338160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

It’s easy to get around.” Among the exceptions: The military can assist law enforcement agencies in the “war on drugs” by providing training and equipment, though it can’t be involved in related searches, seizures or arrests. The military can help law enforcement agencies with counterterrorism operations, where it is allowed to conduct searches, seizures and arrests in emergency situations. Whether it’s wise to dispatch National Guard troops to the border is up for debate. Whether it’s legal is not, experts say. Though a 19th-century law largely bars the military from police work on American soil, President Bush’s plan to position as many as 6,000 guardsmen along the border falls under a couple of the law’s many exceptions. The 1878 Posse Comitatus Act, passed by Congress in the aftermath of the Civil War, was first meant to stop Confederate states from using federal troops to supervise elections. Ever since, it has outlawed using the military to “execute the law.” last_img read more
