#JaVotes2016: Disabled at risk of being disenfranchised

first_imgThe disabled and elderly in eastern St Thomas have been finding it challenging to cast their votes, as nothing has been put in place to facilitate them accessing the polling stations. One such voter, 80-year-old Zeris Baker, who was pushed in a wheelchair to Port Morant Primary and Junior High, which housed six polling stations, had to be lifted in order to cast her vote. “They could put up a ramp and make it a little easier for persons with disability to come out and vote. But a so wi get it, so we have to take it,” Baker, who almost fell as she tried to stand said. Baker, who has a heart condition, said she had not intended to come out and vote, but was convinced to do so. “Mi sick wid mi heart. Doctor say mi not to tired, vex or frighten out miself and if I can help it I muss not stress and mi alone not to be at home,” Baker revealed. “But my friends call me and said they were going to send a taxi for me and I said I couldn’t come, but they said they were sending it, so I came.” The Jamaica Labour Party’s Delano Seiveright is trying to wrestle the seat away from the People’s National Party’s Fenton Ferguson.last_img read more

Asian nations should not be disturbed by minor frictions: Li

first_imgFrom K J M VarmaBeijing, Mar 24 (PTI) Amid Chinas disputes with regional countries over maritime and territorial claims, Premier Li Keqiang today asked Asian nations to be “good neighbours” and not be disturbed by “minor frictions” to maintain Asia as the key driver of the world economy.An important reason why Asia had achieved a rapid growth over the past decades is that the region kept a generally peaceful and stable environment, Li said while addressing the opening ceremony of the 2016 Boao Forum for Asia (BFA) in Hainan Province.Dialogue and cooperation is the golden key, he asserted amid maritime frictions China is involved in with a host of countries, including Japan.Vietnam, the Philippines, Malaysia, Brunei and Taiwan contest Chinas claim over almost all of the South China Sea. China and Japan were recently involved in a major row of the disputed islands in the East China Sea.India and China too are making efforts to resolve their boundary dispute which cast a shadow over the development of their relations.Amid these challenges, Li, while speaking at the Chinese business forum modelled on World Economic Forum of Davos, stressed that inspired by history and experiences after the WWII, Asian countries should be “good neighbours and friends” and not be disturbed by “minor frictions and contradictions” no matter what stage of development they are in.Citing assertions that the Asian economy is in a difficult situation, Li called for coordination and united efforts to overcome those problems.On concerns over slowdown of Chinese economy which slipped to 6.9 per cent last year, Li said his government will resolutely take comprehensive measures if the economic growth slips out of the “reasonable range”.advertisementChinese government says that it has avoided stimulus package to revive the economy so far as the economic growth is in the reasonable range.Li asserted that the government will prevent the loss of speed and maintain economic growth within a reasonable range.The Chinese government has fixed 6.5-7 per cent as the target for GDP this year.This years meeting in Boao, Hainan, is being from March 22 to 25.Its theme this year is “Asias New Future: New Dynamics and New Vision.More than 2,000 participants from over 60 countries including heads of business houses from India and other countries are attending the forum.The event features discussions on the macro-economy, politics, entrepreneurship, innovation, the Internet, public well-being and culture.

Bill to regulate Flag Coat of Arms introduced in Parliament

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppThe spirit of the bill was highly commended and widely supported, but the details were sorely and sometimes shamefully lacking as House of Assembly members debated the proposal of a law to govern how to use the flag, coat of arms and national symbols.  Premier Hon Rufus Ewing in presenting the Flag and Coat of Arms Bill 2016 cited that there is a dire need for clarity when it comes to what is official use of emblems like the coat of arms, for example.  Opposition Leader Sharlene Robinson pointed out that there were some things missing in the bill, including a thorough description of the coat of arms.  Many would have learned last year, when Howell died, that the song was actually never officially sanctioned as the national song.  Hon Delroy Williams questioned the country’s right to the song.   Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Governor’s Appointed member, Hon John Philips also called for a clear timeline to see the defined and precise colour codes outlined in the bill, instituted eventually.    Related Items:center_img Abruptly, the House of Assembly on this debate was shut down – sine die by Premier Hon Rufus Ewing yesterday evening. There was discussion too on merchandise currently bearing the flag and coat of arms and what would become of that merchandise, sold mainly to visitors to the country.  The Member from Wheeland added question about rights to the traditional national song, This land of Ours, written by the late Rev. Dr. Conrad Howell.  Philips did not support that the bill puts a restriction on the use of the flag; he wants to see the TCI flag used in advertisements for the country more often.last_img read more

PDM deputy leader says PNP has no respect for National Hero Memory

first_img Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, TCI, June 8, 2016 – The Minister of Finance called it an education to set the record straight Monday when he made a single early contribution on the Flag & Coat of Arms Bill 2016 during House of Assembly debate.It was under his administration that National Heroes Day was established, reminded Hon Washington Misick, and he was not going to be told he is not patriotic enough. “To have the gall to come in and say that we don’t respect his memory, or in somehow dishonoring the heritage and his contribution to make political mileage, I could not sit by and allow that to pass.  It was under my administration that the National Heroes ordinance was passed.”The heated explanation followed strong words from deputy leader of the PDM, Hon Sean Astwood who chided the government side for not showing up to the National Heroes Day Memorial Service, which he said was a public holiday.   Only Premier Rufus Ewing attended. “Some might get mad that I highlighted their absence, and that’s fine and good, but they would undoubtedly say that they have national pride,  but I can assure you, the people of the Turks and Caicos Islands and you yourself Mr. Speaker, did not see their pride displayed at that last National Heroes Day memorial ceremony.  Therefore Mr. Speaker let me put our country on notice, next year on National Heroes Day, under a PDM lead government, every minister, every member of Cabinet, every head of government departments, all school and uniformed officers will be mandated to turn out to official functions and parades.” Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApplast_img read more
