– as coalition delegation meets with GECOMA high level team of the Government on Friday met with the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) on the upcoming General and Regional Elections, but the Opposition-nominated Commissioners are holding out that the administration is bent on delaying the hosting of the election even further.GECOM Chair Justice (retired) Claudette Singh and Commissioners meeting with the Government delegation on Friday“It was very clear, from the outset, that the purpose of the meeting was to intimidate the Commission into participating in its ploy to delay elections,” a joint statement from the three People’s Progressive Party (PPP) Commissioners later stated on Friday.It was noted that there was there no prior request from the Government for a meeting until a Bharrat Jagdeo-led delegation met with the Elections Commission earlier in the week and was given a commitment by the GECOM Chair, Justice (retired) Claudette Singh, for the conduct of elections before the end of the year.The Opposition Commissioners recalled that during Friday’s meeting, Attorney General Basil Williams, who was among the nine-member delegation, cited the pending appeal against the decision of the Chief Justice in Christopher Ram v Guyana Elections Commission, Attorney General et ors, including the filing of an application for a stay of execution.PNC Chair Volda Lawrence speaking with the media after leading a Government delegation to meet with the Elections Commission“It seems as though he wants to delay the holding of elections until the hearing of this matter, possibly by the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ)… As was expected, the contributions of the members of the delegation, if implemented, could only lead to further delay,” the missive detailed.Nevertheless, the PPP-nominated GECOM Commissioners reiterated that elections should be held “in the shortest time possible”, in keeping with not only the constitutional prescriptions in Article 106, but also the admonitions of the CCJ and the Chief Justice rulings in the various cases resulting from the successful passage of the No-Confidence Motion in December 2018.Article 106 states that upon the passage of a motion of no-confidence, the Cabinet, including the President, shall resign and call election in three months. This meant General and Regional Elections were supposed to be held since March 21, 2019.The Opposition has been contending that elections can be held long before the end of this year.However, while the APNU/AFC coalition is being accused of delaying tactics to push the holding of polls to 2020, Chair of the People’s National Congress Reform (PNCR) – the leading party in the APNU fraction of the coalition – Volda Lawrence declared that Government is ready for General and Regional Elections should it be held before the end of this year.Lawrence led the Government delegation to meet the full Elections Commission on Friday, where they were told that efforts are being taken to see whether elections can be held before the end of this year.The same commitment that was given to an Opposition delegation on Tuesday when they met with the full Elections Commission.“The Chairperson did say that she had indicated that they are working towards the end of this year to see whether that time frame [and] all the things they have to do – statutory and administration – will allow them to conclude on this matter of elections by the end of the year. But no definite time, they’re still working on their timetable,” Lawrence told reporters after Friday’s meeting.She explained that the coalition’s purpose of the meeting with the seven-member Commission was to seek clarifications on certain issues and to also lend support to the process of having elections in the earliest time possible.Lawrence said she reiterated to the Commission Government’s position that there must be “credible elections” using a credible voters’ list and that they were assured that the information from the now scrapped House-to-House Registration process will be used in the upcoming elections as well as provisions for those who did not get to register.“Basically, we were able also to put forward our case in terms us ensuring that the list is credible, and that persons, who were not allowed to register in the House-to-House Registration, during the Claims period they will be given the opportunity to do so,” she stated.“We also asked whether they had enough finances and other resources at their disposal given the time factor that is now placed upon them and they have assured us that they are presently looking at that, given the changes that they’re requesting of their many service providers. Of course, the cost will go up so they do not have an initial amount at this time”, the PNC Chair added.She assured that whatever finances are required by the elections body will be provided. According to Lawrence, the coalition has faith in the GECOM leadership and the Commissioners, and will continue to work and meet with them.She was accompanied to the meeting by Ministers from both the APNU and AFC fractions. These include: Amna Ally, Basil Williams, Cathy Hughes, David Patterson, Jaipaul Sharma, Sydney Allicock, Keith Scott and Tabitha Sarbo-Halley.Meanwhile, after the Government delegation left GECOM on Friday, the Commission continued discussions. According to Opposition-nominated Commissioner, Sase Gunraj, one of the issues discussed was in relation to the information obtained during the registration exercise.GECOM had disclosed that over 370,000 registrants were registered during the now scrapped exercise.“Unfortunately, we’ve not been able to get an update on the process and the progress that that has made so far. So, we are left again in the lurch, with the absence of information that will help us to come to a decision as soon as possible,” he stated.Recapping on the meeting with the Government delegation, Gunraj noted that the issues that were raised by visitors were nothing new or nothing outside what is already under the consideration of the Commission.

GAA fans are up in arms after dozens of them received parking tickets in the post after the recent Senior League Final.The fans from both Ardara and Naomh Conaill (Glenties) got the shock €40 fines this week after the game at St.Eunan’s O’Donnell Park in Letterkenny in November12th last.The motorists were forced to park outside the ground after the St.Eunan’s car park filled up very quickly because of the huge crowd attending the game. A number of fans spoken to by Donegaldaily.com said the arrival of the fine in the post this week was the first they knew abut it.All of those we have spoken to are adamant that they never received a parking ticket on the day.Sources close to St.Eunan’s say they are not happy by the move as they have ben trying their best to attract the big games to the club ground.We understand that an announcement had been made before the game asking fans who had been doubled-parked close to the roundabout opposite the entrance to the ground to move their cars. Many of these cars were removed and no other announcement was made.One fan who received a parking fine said he was livid that Gardai had chosen to fine fans.“It was not a case that the road had been blocked. Yes, cars were parked up on footpaths but that has always been the case.“I for one never received any parking ticket on the day and I was shocked when I got the fine in the post this week.“It’s not the money as much as that annoys me. But it’s the fact that I could not have parked anywhere else. “There was a huge amount of cars trying to park. Personally I was parked on a very wide footpath. I could have parked on the road but I would have been blocking traffic and I didn’t want to do that.“I’m sure St.Eunan’s are annoyed by this because this heavy-handed approach by Gardai helps nobody,” he said.© 2011 donegaldaily.com, all Rights ReservedThe copying, republication or redistribution of donegaldaily.com Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.

GUN and game clubs in Co Donegal have offered free pest control to farmers in a bid to stop the indiscriminate poisoning of the county’s golden eagles.Yesterday donegaldaily.com revealed that there were fears that two more eagles had been killed by poisoning.Now local game and shooting clubs affiliated to the National Association of Regional Game Councils have issued a public plea to those poisoning eagles to stop – and to get rid of pests by using their services for free. It’s thought many eagles have been killed by poison left in the open and meant for animals such as foxes. It is illegal to leave out poison openly.NARGC boss Des Crofton said: “The gun clubs in Donegal, all of whom are equally horrified about this news, are willing to provide a free pest control service when requested.“The irresponsible use of poison baits has killed numerous working dogs and domestic pets and represents a serious threat to protected birds in Ireland.“The National Association of Regional Game Councils is urging anyone with further information to contact their local National Parks ranger or the Garda Síochána.” GUN CLUB OFFERS FREE PEST CONTROL IN BID TO SAVE EAGLES FROM POISON was last modified: May 18th, 2012 by BrendaShare 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:GUN CLUB OFFERS FREE PEST CONTROL IN BID TO SAVE EAGLES FROM POISON
BY THE LOWER ROSSES MAYOR: Naomh Muire GAA Club honours – The great Bruce Springsteen song “We take care of our own” was what it was like last night as the Chairman made two inspired choices in Club Guest and Hall of Fame recipient at the Dinner Dance and Awards Night.BBC journalist Kevin Sharkey was the Club Guest and it was great to see Kevin back in full flow remembering days of the past but likewise looking at where it is all heading hopefully.Kevin was deeply involved in the Club as secretary in the early years and although his playing career was… lets say mixed….with Kevin himself jokingly referring to being called ashore in a match in Gweedore…Kevin always gave his all off the field and often took one for the team when other Clubs tried to, at times, scupper our existence. Great seeing you as a deserved Guest of Honour a Caoimhín. Jimmy Doherty was this years Hall of Fame winner and boy what a deserving man. This page is too short to outline Jimmy’s contribution both on the sideline as Bainisteoir and off it in developing the facilities on view today.Jimmy gave the Club his all taking us to Division one, Intermediate Champions, Senior Championship football and acted as Chairman and Club Uachtarán. A humble man who has achieved much in his life and it was great to see Jimmy on the stage last night receiving this great Honour. Although he has returned to the quieter game of golf “far from the madding crowd”…Jimmy is still around us in the oft heated GAA scene.Congratulations Jimmy Doherty and most richly deserved.Two great men belonging to a Great Club…..”we take care of our own” PICTURES BRID SWEENEY PICTURE SPECIAL: BBC’S KEVIN RETURNS TO HIS ROSSES ROOTS ON NIGHT OF CELEBRATION FOR NAOMH MHUIRE was last modified: February 3rd, 2013 by BrendaShare 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:PICTURE SPECIAL: BBC’S KEVIN RETURNS TO HIS ROSSES ROOTS ON NIGHT OF CELEBRATION FOR NAOMH MHUIRE
