Supreme Court Grants Tyler’s Plea to Stop Speaker Election

first_imgJustice-in-Chambers Justice Sie-A-Nyene Gyapay Youh has upheld a prohibition against the election of a new Speaker, which was expected to be held today in the William R. Tolbert Joint Chambers on Capitol Hill, Monrovia.According to reports, the ‘Writ of Prohibition’ was issued yesterday, at the end of a day time campaign – and on the eve of the nighttime political operations for the replacement of former Speaker Alex Tyler.Montserrado County District # 15 Representative Adolph Lawrence and former Speaker J. Alex Tyler respectively prayed the High Court for the prohibition against the election of the new Speaker, according to reports. It was gathered that a conference between Rep. Lawrence and Deputy Speaker Hans M. Barchue et al, will be held today at 10:00 a.m. in the Chambers of Justice Sie-A-Nyene Gyapay Youh, while another conference between Speaker Tyler and Deputy Speaker Hans M. Barchue el al will also be held today at 12:00 noon.Tyler’s appeal comes in the wake of plans by the House of Representatives to hold an election for a new Speaker. At a special session on Friday September 30, the Plenary of the House of Representatives voted and set Tuesday October 4 as the day for the election.Former Speaker Tyler reportedly petitioned Associate Court Justice-in-Chambers Kabineh Ja’neh for the issuance of a ‘Writ of Prohibition’ against Deputy Speaker Hans Barchue for Tyler’s ‘illegal’ removal as Speaker of the House of Representatives. The Writ of Prohibition, filed by former Speaker Tyler’s lawyer Cllr. Johnny Momo, requested the court to “Prohibit, enjoin and restrain respondent from any act or conduct purporting or intending to elect or select a successor to petitioner as Speaker of the House of Representatives. Appoint a date and time for the respondents to file their returns to show cause, if any, why the preemptory writ should not be issued by your honor.”In his petition the ousted Speaker further begged the court to command and order that all matters return to the status quo and wants the court to declare null and void the respondents’ attempt to oust and remove the petitioner from the office of Speaker of the House of Representatives because the proceedings conducted were not in compliance with the Constitution and the House’s Standing Rules.He further said the court should undo any act and conduct from his colleagues that were illegal.On Tuesday September 27, forty-nine (49) members of the House of Representatives signed a resolution to remove Speaker Alex Tyler from his position as Speaker of the House of Representatives. The decision is in keeping with Article 49 of the Constitution.Article 49 of the Constitution states that the House of Representatives shall elect once every six years, a Speaker who shall be the presiding officer of that body, a Deputy Speaker and such other officers as shall ensure the proper functioning of the House.The Speaker, the Deputy Speaker and other officers so elected may be removed from office for cause by resolution of two-thirds majority of the members of the House.There are 73 members of the House of Representatives and two-third of that number—49—removed Alex Tyler. The decision of the 49 members came as a result of a report from the Committee on Rules, Order and Administration, who recommended that in keeping with the House of Representatives’ Rules 48.1and 48.3 in the committee’s report, it was unanimously recommended that Tyler be removed from his position as Speaker of the House of Representatives, a position he holds by privilege of the members of the House of Representatives.The committee’s report is a result of a mandate by the Plenary of the House of Representatives to investigate complaints brought before that body by Representative Henry Fahnbulleh of Montserrado County and Samuel Korgar of Nimba County, who accused Tyler of taking bribes and other criminal conducts relating to his position as Speaker.However, Rep. Lawrence’s petition to the High Court is yet to be made public, but reports say it is about the stoppage of the Speaker’s election Meanwhile, Rule #10 of the House’s Rules and Procedures requires the election of the Speaker within 60 days after the office of the Speaker shall become vacant by reason of removal, death, resignation, inability or other disabilities.ContestantsUp to yesterday afternoon (4:00 p.m.), the office of Chief Clerk Mildred Sayon was yet to release the official list of candidates vying for the Speaker’s post.A source from Sayon’s office said the official list of candidates would be ready and subsequently announced during tomorrow’s special extraordinary sitting before nomination begins, but with the Write of Prohibition upholding his request not to allow elections for the new Speaker, many see another round of legal gymnastics that would continue for some time.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

National Mining Syndicate Constitution launched

first_img…miners working towards safer, more efficient, sustainable industry – NMS PresidentNational Mining Syndicate President Cheryl WilliamsThe manifestation of National Mining Syndicate’s Constitution marks the culmination of many months of hard work that will aid in propelling the sector, while catering for the needs of all miners.This is according to Natural Resources Minister Raphael Trotman, who, while addressing the gathering at the launching ceremony of its Constitution on Friday, noted the importance of such a document.He emphasised that it will also be used to protect the rights of miners and those under their employ, but also reminded that members of the Syndicate need to focus on the original intent of those who crafted this much-needed Constitution and not deter from its purpose.Minister Trotman lamented that mining is too often associated with everything negative that ails society, and that miners often do not receive much positive coverage. This, he stated, must be changed.Meanwhile, National Mining Syndicate (NMS) President Cheryl Williams said that Guyana’s mining industry is not without its challenges and obstacles, nonetheless, those in the mining sector continue to push towards the aim of sustaining the country’s economy while preserving the environmental riches.“The Syndicate currently consists of over 500 members representing just over 3,000 labourers in their employ. In our numbers, we are powerful…this ensures that we are effectively and meaningfully represented in all mining districts, working towards a safer and more efficient and sustainable industry focusing on sound environmental practices that would assist in preserving Guyana’s rich biodiversity and ecological corridors that include, wild life, waterways and forestry”.She stated that the possibilities for those involved in the extractive sector in Guyana are endless, and that it is only through working together, in such a case, through the NSM, that the Government and corresponding institutions operate and handle miners’ business in a professional and transparent manner. The end result is that all of the country’s miners can be given respect, guidance and assistance.“Through this initiative, we are able to access the benefits that were once not available to small-scale miners. We have transformed the industry. Together, there is much that can be achieved and accomplished…the possibilities and scope are endless…the extractive sector has been the backbone of the country’s economy for decades and we are all privileged to be a part of that legacy, mining is in our birthright, it is in our blood stemming from our ancestors”.NSM Inc is a non-political parent body of all mining syndicates in Guyana that aims at ensuring equal opportunity for all involved in the sector, while protecting the human rights of all miners, regardless of race, gender, political and religious convictions. The NSM also aims at coordinating and facilitating the consultative and participatory process regarding the individual syndicates, by assisting them to find solutions to problems that may arise with regards to mining and other related operations that involve the extractive industry, among others.The recently-launched Constitution is a legal framework that will guide the officers of the Board of the NMS to allow for the growth and development of the local mining syndicates— both individually and collectively— while supporting the national economy, and ensuring that the values of the body are promoted throughout the organisation. These include values such as effective management, transparency and environmental awareness to assist in enhancing a green economy, while building national trust.NeglectLast month, People’s Progressive Party (PPP) Presidential Candidate Irfaan Ali had cause to flag the now caretaker coalition Government for neglecting the mining sector, noting that its counterproductive policies have destroyed the once flourishing sector.Chief among the poor policies of the APNU/AFC administration, he pointed out are the burdensome taxes that have negatively affected recapitalisation and increased transactional cost. He further mentioned the lack of inventions in infrastructure which has led to a higher cost of transportation and increased cost of production.Other areas which Ali flagged the now caretaker coalition Government on include: the removal of incentives that brought cost savings to miners and hinterland communities, leakages and favouritism in the distribution of mining properties and claims, and neglect, mismanagement and corruption.Also, in July, a large number of miners and other business operators complained of not being able to reach the mining areas to work owing to the deplorable state of the Itaballi-Puruni Road, Region Seven (Cuyuni-Mazaruni).The Itaballi-Puruni Road is the main thoroughfare used by persons in accessing the gold mining districts of Puruni Number 3, Cuyuni Number 4, and the Middle Mazaruni area, Region Seven from the Papishou Landing. The Puruni Road runs from the community of Itaballi, Mazaruni River, Lower Mazaruni, to the Papishou Landing, Mazaruni River, and Middle Mazaruni, and is the only entrance and exit to various key sections of Region Seven.This newspaper was told that the Guyana Geology and Mines Commission (GGMC) has the sole responsibility for the maintenance of this road; however, users say they have been doing an unsatisfactory job.In May, miners from Chinese Landing, Barima River, Region One (Barima-Waini) also had cause to complain bitterly of the GGMC officials and Police destroying their mining camps and halting their dredging operations, which resulted in them suffering major losses and finding difficulties in earning incomes.last_img read more

New manager, same old Arsenal held at Norwich

first_img“It’s easy to see what we have to work on,” said Ljungberg. “We need to work on the transitions, we dominated and they break on us too easily.”Arsenal also had goalkeeper Bernd Leno to thank for coming away with a point as the German saved brilliantly from Kenny McLean, Pukki and Emiliano Buendia.Unai Emery was sacked on Friday after seven games without a win in all competitions that had seen the Gunners fall well off the pace in the race for a top-four finish.A point leaves Arsenal still seven adrift of the top four down in eighth, but Ljungberg believes he can help close that gap.“Top four is 100 percent achievable,” added the Swede. “In the beginning I saw a lot of things we worked on in training, but we need to score goals and take the lead.“I want this club to do well, it is only winning that counts. I wanted to win the games so I am disappointed, but I have also seen some positive things.”Ljungberg recalled Granit Xhaka for the first time in the Premier League since an explosive clash with the club’s fans as he was substituted against Crystal Palace last month that cost him the captaincy among four changes from Emery’s last starting line-up in the league.After a bright start, Arsenal fell behind to Norwich’s first dangerous attack when McLean’s pass played in Pukki, who twisted and turned David Luiz before seeing his shot deflect in off Shkodran Mustafi for his first club goal in nine games.However, Norwich have also made a habit of giving themselves a mountain to climb this season with defensive errors and gifted Arsenal a route back into the game when captain Christoph Zimmerman handled a free-kick inside his own box.– ‘Really unhappy with decisions’ –Caretaker manager Freddie Ljungburg could not end Arsenal’s wait for a win © AFP / Lindsey ParnabyAubameyang saw his first spot-kick saved by Tim Krul, but was given a second chance after a VAR review for encroaching by the Norwich players and fired home the retaken penalty.“I was really unhappy with the quality of decisions during this period. Each and every 50-50 was against us,” bemoaned Norwich boss Daniel Farke.Just as Arsenal were beginning to get on top, they were again cut open with ease as Onel Hernandez’s cut-back was passed into the far corner by Cantwell to give Norwich a half-time lead.Aubameyang has now scored half of his side’s 20 Premier League goals this season as the Gunners’ new captain led by example to smash home at the back post from a corner just before the hour mark.But it was Norwich who will feel they should have taken all three points.McLean’s shot was turned onto the post, Cantwell’s strike from the edge of the area flew just wide and Pukki was denied by a fine Leno save in quick succession before the German had one more big stop to make from Buendia in stoppage time.“It was a great performance, we delivered what we wanted to do,” added Farke.“I’m disappointed to some extent — we should have got three points. Some of that was due to a world-class Bernd Leno.”0Shares0000(Visited 13 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored twice to salvage a 2-2 draw for Arsenal at Norwich © AFP / Lindsey ParnabyNorwich, United Kingdom, Dec 1 – Arsenal caretaker manager Freddie Ljungberg said it is obvious what he needs to work on as the Gunners’ defensive problems were again exposed in a 2-2 draw at struggling Norwich on Sunday.Norwich twice led through Teemu Pukki and Todd Cantwell, but Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang ensured Ljungberg did not suffer defeat in his first game since taking temporary charge.last_img read more

Chelsea stars rated and slated as perfect start ends against West Ham

first_img Son ban confirmed as Tottenham fail with appeal to overturn red card Mateo Kovacic – 6He was the game’s most influential player in the opening ten minutes, but then he faded. He is showing some real signs of promise, with his Hazard-esque way of carrying the ball and going past players.Willian – 7The Brazilian created Chelsea’s best chances with an inventive through ball to Hazard and a cut-back to Kante. He threatened to make something happen but ultimately couldn’t provide the spark. He squandered an incredible chance in stoppage time by firing horribly wide.Olivier Giroud – 5A quiet day for the World Cup winner. In truth, he lacked service and was well-marked. West Ham were compact and didn’t allow the ball into his feet. It was a frustrating day for Chelsea Oxlade-Chamberlain suffers another setback as Klopp confirms serious injury 5 REVEALED REVEALED Eden Hazard – 6By his incredibly high standards, this was an off-day. Twice he was one-on-one with Lukasz Fabianski and twice he declined the shot, for reasons only he knows. It looked like he would develop that killer instinct this season, but he remains too unselfish for his own good.Sub: Alvaro Morata – 5Simply had to score when he poked to ball at Fabianski’s face from point-blank range. His lack of confidence in front of goal continues.Sub: Gary Cahill – 6Didn’t have much to do in his first appearance of the season.Sub: Ross Barkley – 5Tough ask to come on and influence such a cagey game and he didn’t manage it, despite a good effort from range. Which teams do the best on Boxing Day in the Premier League era? England’s most successful clubs of the past decade, according to trophies won The visitors, visibly lacking sharpness after returning from a Europa League trip to Greece on Thursday, were wasteful in front of goal, with Eden Hazard, Willian and Alvaro Morata all faltering with the goal at their mercy.How did rate the men in yellow? Scroll down to find out.Kepa Arrizabalaga – 7The Spaniard will have to adapt to life in the Chelsea goal, where you can be untested for 99% of the game before being called upon. He was forced into one save from Michail Antonio in the first-half and it was an important one. Jorginho was busy Cesar Azpilicueta – 4Felipe Anderson gave him a bit of a runaround this afternoon. He was turned too often and too easily. His attacking exploits were poor, too. With Olivier Giroud waiting in the box, the cross was always too late or lacking in quality.Antonio Rudiger – 7Chelsea’s best defender on the day. Solid throughout and positive in possession, it is easy to see why he has become one of the first names on Sarri’s team sheet. Excellent one-v-one defending against Antonio in the second-half after Luiz’s mistake.David Luiz – 5Luiz is much better at defending than many will have you think, however he still lacks awareness of his surroundings and a sense of urgency. He had no idea Antonio was lurking when he challenged Andriy Yarmolenko in the first-half and failed to deal with the ball. Should’ve done better with a header in the second-half as well. Premier League Team of the Season so far, including Liverpool and Leicester stars 5 5 Hazard was too unselfish Azpilicueta was poor Luiz lacked urgency no dice Marcos Alonso – 5The Spanish full-back was caught too high up the pitch on several occasions, leaving Chelsea vulnerable at the back. This is fine when he’s contributing in attack, but today wasn’t his best day going forward either.N’Golo Kante – 5Probably the first time Kante has ever performed below an 8/10. He still looks confused in the final third, which is only natural given he is adapting to this new attacking role. He also seemed slower to the second ball today, which could be a result of playing on Thursday night.Jorginho – 8What a signing. He is immediately up there with the Premier League’s best passers. It’s not just recycling the ball sideways, either. Chelsea’s best moments came from his creativity, scooping the ball in behind or spreading it wide. Misplaced passes were always attempts to force the issue, which the Blues needed. gameday cracker 5 shining LATEST PREMIER LEAGUE NEWS silverware Where Ancelotti ranks with every Premier League boss for trophies won tense huge blow Boxing Day fixtures: All nine Premier League games live on talkSPORT Chelsea drew a blank for the first time this season as West Ham brought an end to the Blues’ perfect start under Maurizio Sarri.A game of very few openings could’ve been won by either team in truth, with Hammers winger Andriy Yarmolenko spurning the best opportunity in the second-half. 5 Green reveals how he confronted Sarri after Chelsea’s 6-0 defeat at Man Citylast_img read more
