Dear Editor,The no-confidence motion was debated and carried in the 65 elected member National Assembly by a vote of 33-32. All through the voting, the display of the governing coalition was blatant in the physical and verbal abuse on Mr Charandas Persaud by members of the AFC and APNU. Within 24 hours after the vote, both the Prime Minister and the President accepted that the vote had been successful. The Clerk of the National Assembly certified that the motion received 33 votes in favour and many Guyanese saw this as a welcoming sign of the respect of the rule of law. We have subsequently seen a U-turn as there are now ‘questions’ on the successful passage of the motion. Let us look at these in detail.33 vs 34 – the majority questionThe first uproar came from Nigel Hughes who said that for the motion to pass it required 34 votes in favor in a 65-member house. I will not go into his math which – to put it very politely – is absolute nonsense. The bigger question – rather, the real question is not the math. The question is not what number constitutes a majority, but rather ask yourself why is it that 33 is no longer a majority.The outcome of the 2011 General and Regional Elections was that the incumbent PPP/C received 32 seats, APNU received 26 seats, and AFC received 7 seats. The PPP/C retained the presidency and Government according to the constitution. APNU and AFC sitting separately in the opposition commanded 33 seats in total. At the opening of the Tenth Parliament, the Hansard dated February 10, 2012, recorded the following statements (the Speaker of the House at this time was Raphael Trotman):Leader of the Opposition [Brigadier (Ret’d) David Granger]: “Thank you Mr. Speaker. I rise on behalf of the majority of this Hon House…”“…we ask you, Mr Speaker, to ensure that the will of the majority of this House is respected.”Mr Ramjattan: “…this National Assembly has as a majority – the members of the Opposition.”Mr Speaker: “The uniqueness both of this National Assembly, with an Opposition majority…”These three statements are significant for two specific reasons. Firstly, it came from the leaders of the two parties forming the opposition in Parliament after the 2011 elections, including from a Speaker of the House that was from the AFC. Secondly and most importantly, each of the statements above made reference to the majority of the House and not a majority of the members present. Briefly put, Mr Granger, Mr Ramjattan, and Mr Trotman, who were all members of the opposition holding 33 seats combined firmly believed and pontificated that holding 33 seats in total equated to having a majority of the National Assembly and the House as a whole.In 2015 General and Regional elections were held. The result was that the APNU+AFC coalition received 33 votes and the PPP/C received 32. Under the Constitution, APNU+AFC took the presidency and formed a Government. In response to the 2018 no-confidence motion tabled by the PPP/C, the following statement was made by the Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo:“It must have a majority of all elected members of National Assembly. Our National Assembly has 65 members. It means that the motion of no-confidence, in order to pass, must have 33 members who are elected as members of the National Assembly.” – DPI November 23, 2018It is therefore clear and indisputable that the leaders of APNU and AFC held that 33 members constituted a majority of the National Assembly from 2012 – 2018. For eight years 33 constituted a majority. It is also critically important to remember that after the passage of the motion both Prime Minister Nagamootoo and President Granger agreed that the motion was successful.In these eight years, Nigel Hughes was a member of the AFC and did not once disagree. Hughes has cited the case of Vanuatu (where the elected House of their Parliament has 52 members) as his logic behind the 34 majority number. There are two flaws in his reasoning and as Hughes notes you can’t have half of a person, we will focus on whole numbers.The first issue with this is the number 52. 52 is an even number, and even numbers are equally divisible into two parts resulting in whole numbers of equal value. For example: 25+25=50, 12+12=24, etc. Secondly (and as a result of the first), all even numbers will – as a minimum – have a majority of a whole number that is two more than the minority. For example: 26+24=50, 13+11=24, etc.The same does not hold true for odd numbers which are not divisible into two parts resulting in whole numbers of equal value (the result will always be a decimal). For example: 25.5+25.5=51, 12.5+12.5=25, etc. Therefore, odd numbers will – as a minimum – have a majority of a whole number that is one more than the minority. For example: 26+25=51, 13+12=25, etc.As demonstrated above, with regards to the 65 elected members of the National Assembly, the following facts are clear and have been endorsed by those now in Government:1. That 33 is a majority of the House of 65 elected members.2. That the leadership of APNU and AFC since 2012 supported this fact.3. That APNU and AFC holding – collectively and in coalition – 33 seats since 2012 have expressed the conviction that 33 is a majority up till December 23, 2018.4. That Nigel Hughes did not since 2012 give any objection to APNU and AFC claiming a majority with 33 seats until the APNU+AFC Government fell from the passage of the 2018 no-confidence motion on December 21, 2018.Sincerely,V Hemsworth
Shadow Man is one of Liberia’s finest artists who hit making ability sets him apart. And in his decade long career, Shadow Man had to overcome some difficulties in the highly competitive music industry. With songs like ‘Tricky Papay,’ which he produced, let us give you what you don’t know about the Man.1. First Liberian artist to be featured on VOAIn 2014, during the heat of the Ebola crisis, Shadow Man worked along with two other rappers to produce the first Ebola song called ‘Ebola in Town,’ which landed him a VOA article, thus becoming the first Liberian artist to achieve that feat. . Second cousin of rap legend K-Zee BigNameShadow Man, the “Leayawoo” crooner, is second cousin of rap legend K-Zee Bigname. They are related on his mother’s side. In fact, his mother Cecelia Simpson Cammue and K- Zee’s mother are cousins. 3. Speaks his mother tongueThis is sad but true. Shadow Man cannot speak his father Samuel G. Morgan Sr’s Grebo dialect, but he can speak his mother’s language, which is Kpelle, the largest tribe in Liberia.In addition, ShadowMan was born at the Catholic run St. Joseph Hospital in Congo Town before migrating to Ghana during the country’s 14-year civil war.4. Shadow Man is left handeShadow Man is 100 percent left-handed, which means he writes with his left hand, eats with it, and does all work, including producing music, with it.5. Only musician among his parents’ childrenShadow Man is blessed with five siblings, five boys and a girl, but he is the only musician in the family. On his first time to the US, Shadow Man was scared to eat that country’s food to avoid a running stomach. However, it took him some time to get used to Western food.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
While the Regional Administration and the Tourism Association of Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam) are busy cleaning up the Region for the holiday season, sellers, vending on Mondays at the Charity Market are doing the opposite.A visit to Charity on Monday, two weeks after a general clean-up was carried out in the area, revealed that those culpable had no regard for the environment. This has led to much criticism against those who vend in the area. Speaking with Guyana Times, a Charity Market vendor, who plies her trade every day at the Market, said that the main culprits were not the regular vendors but those who vend only on Mondays. Monday is the biggest market day at Charity.“They come and sell and throw their garbage all over the place, even into theGarbage in a trench at Charity, Essequibo Coast two weeks after the area was cleaneddrainage system,” another Charity Market vendor told this publication. On Mondays, persons from as far as Region One (Barima-Waini) go to Charity to do business and as such, large numbers of vendors grab at the opportunity to sell their products.Residents living in the Pomeroon River are also being affected since most of the garbage in the drainage system at Charity ends up in the Pomeroon River. According to a Pomeroon River resident, this can be very detrimental for them since they depend solely on the river water to do everyday chores. Speedboat operators operating in the Pomeroon River are also complaining of the many objects thrown into the waterways which are dangerous, since they can lead to accidents.Less than two weeks ago, the President and members of the Region Two Tourism Association, in collaboration with the Regional Democratic Council (RDC), met with the Regional Chairman Devanand Ramdatt to discuss plans for the Region’s tourism sector.According to the Regional Chairman, to attract tourism to the Region, there must be a clean environment; courteous and reliable transportation providers; accommodations; stable electricity, water and communication and easy access to places of interest.The Region Two Tourism Association President Maria Lords-Lewis said that plans were in place to start a tourism awareness drive in the Region by reaching out to the schools, business sector, service providers, and residents so as to get all involved, prepared, and ready.

A judge has pleaded with people to turn up in court so he can help them save their homes from the banks.Judge John O’Hagan said he wants to help people keep their family homes but said he couldn’t help them unless they turned up in court.Judge O’Hagan told Letterkenny Circuit Court today that he wanted to do all he could to help families during the present economic climate. He was speaking has he dealt with a case brought by Irish Nationwide against a man who did not turn up in court.Judge O’Hagan said he would view any attempt to re-possess a family home very seriously.However he said “I know that people in cases like this are inclined to put their head in the sand. If people do that I can do nothing for them.“I won’t make orders against them if they come in to see me, but if they don’t, there is nothing I can do.”The Judge said he would make distinctions between family homes occupied by parents with children and investment properties.“People must face up to the problems they have. They need to come in here to see me.”In two other cases the judge ordered the re-possession of two properties belonging to a man from Buncrana.The owner did not appear in court and a barrister representing Irish Life and Permanent told the court that they believed the man had emigrated to Australia.Follow us on www.twitter.com/donegaldailyFollow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldailySell anything on www.donegaldailyclassifieds.comJUDGE PLEADS WITH DONEGAL PUBLIC TO COME TO COURT TO SAVE THEIR HOMES was last modified: October 26th, 2011 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:JUdge John O’HaganLetterkenny Circuit Court
