Brumskine: “We Want to Clean Up Electoral Mess”

first_imgBrumskine seeks legal means to clean all electoral mess in the countryBy Abednego Davis and David S. MenjorLiberty Party standard bearer, Cllr. Charles Walker Brumskine who is seeking rerun of the October 10 presidential and legislative elections due to alleged irregularities and frauds said the action by his party is to clean up the electoral mess and correct the system.Cllr. Brumskine, who represented his party in the arguments as to whether or not the Supreme Court should issue a writ of prohibition on the National Elections Commission (NEC) preventing the holding of the Nov. 7 runoff election, stated that his intention was not about winning or losing an election. “It is about proving it right that no good can come from out of evil,” he said.He argued that if the runoff election is held without looking into his complaint, that would be a clear violation of the party’s constitutional right to a due process.Therefore, he pleaded with the court to halt the runoff pending final determination of the merit and demerit of the complaint by the court.Harrison Karnwea and Musa Bility march other executives of Liberty Party to the grounds of the Supreme CourtIn counter argument, NEC’s lead lawyer Frank Musa Dean asked the court to deny the LP complaint and give NEC the permission to conduct the Nov. 7 runoff election.Cllr. Dean argued that NEC was investigating LP’s complaint as provided by Article 83 of the constitution which he said gives NEC 30 days to hear any complaint from the electoral process.According to him, the 30 days will run up to Nov. 23, at which time the runoff election might have been held and a winner declared by NEC.Article 83 on which NEC relied their argument states that:(a) Voting for the President, Vice-President, members of the Senate and members of the House of Representatives shall be conducted throughout the Republic on the second Tuesday in October of each election year.(b) All elections of public officers shall be determined by an absolute majority of the votes cast. If no candidate obtains an absolute majority in the first ballot, a second ballot shall be conducted on the second Tuesday following. The two candidates who received the greatest numbers of votes on the first ballot shall be designated to participate in the run off election.(c) The returns of the elections shall be declared by the Elections Commission not later than fifteen days after the casting of ballots. Any party or candidate who complains about the manner in which the elections were conducted or who challenges the results thereof shall have the right to file a complaint with the Elections Commission. Such complaint must be filed not later than seven days after the announcement of the results of the elections.The Elections Commission shall, within thirty days of receipt of the complaint, conduct an impartial investigation and render a decision which may involve a dismissal of the complaint or a nullification of the election of a candidate. Any political party or independent candidate affected by such decision shall not later than seven days appeal against it to the Supreme Court.The Elections Commission shall within seven days of receipt of the notice of appeal, forward all the records in the case to the Supreme Court, which not later than seven days thereafter, shall hear and make its determination. If the Supreme Court nullifies or sustains the nullification of the election of any candidate, for whatever reasons, the Elections commission shall within sixty days of the decision of the Court conduct new elections to fill the vacancy. If the court sustains the election of a candidate, the Elections Commission shall act to effectuate the mandate of the Court.Meanwhile, ruling into the argument for the writ of prohibition was reserved for Monday Nov. 6.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Yarmolenko could struggle to play again for West Ham this season, says boss

first_img 3 West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini speaks with Andriy Yarmolenko as he leaves the field on a stretcher against Tottenham Pushed on a time frame for Yarmolenko’s expected return, Pellegrini said at his press conference ahead of Saturday’s clash at Leicester: “It’s so difficult to know how he will recover, but I don’t think it will be less than five or six months.“You need to recover your best shape, recover your trust, it is not easy.”West Ham travel to Leicester looking to avoid a third successive Premier League defeat after a second halted their revival.Pellegrini added: “If you review our fixtures then in the first ten games we played eight teams in the top half, now we have teams that are similar to us. (However) that doesn’t guarantee you are going to beat them. The Ukraine international has had an operation to correct the problem and is now facing a lengthy spell of rehab.And while five to six months may be the official time frame, Pellegrini concedes getting the 29-year-old back firing on all cylinders and ready to make an impact by the start of May might be a tall order.The timing of the injury was cruel on Yarmolenko, who had begun to show signs he was settling into the Premier League, having scored two goals since joining the Hammers.And Pellegrini says losing him so early in the season is a ‘very difficult’ blow for the team.“Yarmolenko has had surgery and he will be out for around five months,” said the boss.“It’s very disappointing. He’s an important player for us. He’s one of the players who arrived this season, so we could have more technical players.“We also have Manuel Lanzini and Jack Wilshere out, so three players in the same position are out.“It’s a real pity and it’s really difficult for the team.” 3 Yarmolenko appeared in serious pain when he came off at the London Stadium center_img Pellegrini knows he has to spark an upturn in fortunes, having only won twice so far this season 3 Manuel Pellegrini has said West Ham forward Andriy Yarmolenko may struggle to play again this season after undergoing surgery on his Achilles injury.The summer signing, who arrived from Borrusia Dortmund for around £18million, is set for five to six months on the sidelines after he was stretchered out of Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to Tottenham. “Our best games we played were against Arsenal, Manchester United and Tottenham, Chelsea, the big teams.“We must know where we need to improve and play like we did against Tottenham for 90 minutes, but we need to start scoring.”Midfielder Pedro Obiang is carrying a calf problem, so will not be available for Saturday’s clash, while Carlos Sanchez and Winston Reid remain sidelined.Leicester City manager Claude Puel, meanwhile, said Jamie Vardy is a doubt for the game.last_img read more


first_imgBundoran Sinn Féin Town Councillor Diarmaid Doherty has called for action after the discovery of an illegal dump site.Cllr Doherty said he was disgusted by the discovery of the materials which looked like it came form a house renovation. “A trailer, possibly a horse box emptied a large quantity of black bags, carpets, doors and garden waste, blocking this beautiful county road.“It is outrageous to think that somebody would consider it acceptable to have a good clean up around their own home only to dump the waste in a public area for local people to clean up.“This is a problem which has increased significantly over the past few months and, with the recent closure of the nearby landfill site, I am concerned that illegal dumping incidents will continue.“I would ask local people to remain vigilant on this matter and report any incidents of illegal dumping to the Environmental Department of Donegal County Council. The town councillor said he was now calling on Donegal County Council to take action to make it clear to the public that illegal dumping will not be accepted.He said the Council should consider No Dumping signs and CCTV to deter people from further illegal dumping.DISCOVERY OF ILLEGAL DUMP IN BUNDORAN was last modified: August 28th, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:bundorandump sitelast_img read more

Education leaders demand more money

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBlues bury Kings early with four first-period goals Educators said they are owed the money from an agreement the governor made with them shortly after taking office in 2003. They maintain that voters supported the notion of fully funding education when they overwhelming rejected the governor’s Proposition 76, which would have capped state spending and revised a funding guarantee for schools. “It was a bit uncomfortable, but we had to remind them that we won,” Wells said. “We also had to be honest with them about the numbers.” Republican lawmakers, already wary of Schwarzenegger’s decision this week to hire a Democratic activist as his new chief of staff, said they are following the early budget talks. They also are watching for any sign that the governor might go too far in making amends to schools. “There’s always that concern,” said Senate Minority Leader Dick Ackerman, R-Tustin. He said the education coalition is overreaching. SACRAMENTO – The state’s powerful education lobby has met privately with top aides to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and sought to make two points clear: It came out on top in the Nov. 8 special election and it wants the administration to make good on a $5.5 billion bill to schools next year. The Wednesday meeting, which lasted an hour, could prove a significant step in repairing the damaged relationship between the governor and educators. It also could hasten a resolution on education funding, a perennial sticking point in budget negotiations because it accounts for the greatest chunk of the state’s annual spending plan. “It was much more than a handshake meeting,” said Bob Wells, executive director of the Association of California School Administrators. “It was an opportunity for both sides to start saying some of the things that need to be said so that we can move on.” The stakes are high. The additional $5.5 billion that schools are requesting likely would force the state to cut other programs, draw on reserves or even borrow money. “If their opening salvo is that they want more money, I don’t think that’s going to impress anyone,” he said. Ackerman also said he did not believe voters gave any mandate in the special election and said his caucus will not support a significant hike in spending without more controls on how money is spent. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
