Senate Receives Citizenship Clause for Debate

first_imgSen H. Dan MoraisMaryland County Senator H. Dan Morais, has submitted to the Senate for debate an Act: “The Dual Citizens and Nationality Law of 2019.”Sen. Morais, who chairs the Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs, said in a letter to his colleagues that the Act is a proposition intended to form part of other propositions for onward submission to the Liberian people in the pending referendum.The current Article 28 of the 1986 Constitution of Liberia reads: “Any person, at least one of whose parents was a citizen of Liberia at the time of the Person’s birth, shall be a citizen of Liberia; provided that any such person shall upon reaching maturity renounce any other citizenship acquired by virtue of one parent being a citizen of another country. No citizen of the Republic shall be deprived of citizenship or nationality except as provided by law; and no person shall be denied the right to change citizenship or nationality.”The Maryland County lawmaker, who is also a former superintendent, emphasized that the key word in his bill is the word “RENOUNCE,” which is so clear that one does not need to be a rocket scientist to comprehend by purpose and intent that the article forbids the holding of Liberian citizenship while holding on to one of another country.”Therefore, Morais maintained, “If the 21st century Liberia should permit dual citizenship, which I think should be considered in some form by leaps and bounds, there is the need to the first amendment Article 28 of the 1986 Constitution to permit the exercise to be discussed comprehensively and considered.”Consequently, Sen. Morais concluded, “I am submitting Article 28 of the 1986 Constitution to read thus: “Any person, at least one of whose parents is a citizen of Liberia at the time of the person’s birth shall remain a citizen of Liberia. Any such person shall upon reaching maturity continue to be a citizen of Liberia. Citizenship by birth shall remain a right and no citizen of Liberia shall be deprived of citizenship or nationality except as provided by law, and no person shall be denied the right to change citizenship or nationality. This law is applicable to only citizens by birth and naturalized citizens of Negro decent of Liberia.”It can be recalled that early January 2018, Senators H. Varney Sherman, Geraldine Doe-Sherif, and Armah Zolu Jallah submitted a bill on the Alien & Nationality Law. A debate on that article raised contention from Sen. Morais, who described an amendment on that Bill by the Judiciary Committee as “plagiary.” Now, just about a year later, Sen. Morias is proffering his version.It can also be recalled that days after the three Senators had submitted the Act on the Alien & Nationality Law, President George Weah in his first Annual Message (Legislative Agenda to the 54th Legislature), called for the amendment of that provision of the Constitution, saying “such does not need to exist in the 21st Century.”During his presentation on the Act calling for Amendment in the Alien and Nationality, and Dual Citizenship Law last January, Senator Sherman described those laws as “inhumane, cruel and are contrary to the new terms of nationality concepts and practices.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

GECOM chair acknowledges first letter from President supersedes second

first_img– emergency meeting ended abruptlyChairman of the Guyana Elections (GECOM), retired Justice James Patterson has acknowledged that the first letter that was dispatched by President David Granger supersedes the second and therefore its contents stand.GECOM Chairman, retired Justice David PattersonFollowing the revelation of the varying letters, on Thursday, an emergency meeting was summoned after which the PPP Commissioner on the elections body released a statement on the issue.See full statement below:At a statutory meeting of the Guyana Elections Commission held on February 26, 2019, a letter written by President David Granger was provided to Commissioners. The said letter, dated February 25, 2019, was presented to Commissioners upon arrival at the meeting. The letter, inter alia, urged the Guyana Elections Commission to commence preparations for the holding of General and Regional Elections. On February 28, 2019, attention was drawn by the Leader of the Opposition to the existence of a second letter, purportedly under the hand of President David Granger, also dated February 25, 2019. Commissioner Bibi Shadick made contact with the office of the Chairman of GECOM and requested a copy of correspondence received by the Chairman from the President. An email was received from the office of the Chairman of GECOM at 13:07h on February 28, in which the one letter was attached. At a meeting of the Commission held on Thursday at 15:00h, an inquiry was made about the existence of a second letter and the Chairman only then confirmed the existence of a second letter. Copies were hurriedly made and provided to Commissioners. PPP GECOM Commissioners Robeson Benn, Bibi Shadick and Sase GunrajWe believe this ‘second letter’ was only sent to GECOM after it was exposed at the press conference of the Leader of the Opposition that the letter posted on the Ministry of the Presidency’s website significantly differed in content from the one circulated to Commissioners on February 26. No previous mention was made of this second letter nor was any effort made to present copies thereof to Commissioners. A discussion on the content of this second letter ensued and upon inquiry, the Chairman responded that it was not his opinion that the second letter superseded the first. Commissioner Vincent Alexander then tendered the view that it did supersede the first. Thereafter, a request was made by Commissioner Shadick for the Secretariat to provide a plan for preparation for the holding of elections, in keeping with the urging of the President. At this point, Commissioners Alexander and Trotman insisted that any such plan must include house-to-house registration. This flies in the face of the urgent need, as prescribed by the Constitution of Guyana, to hold elections within three months of the successful passage of a vote of no-confidence. Further, it can only be seen as another act in the series of dilatory tactics employed by certain Commissioners and the secretariat of GECOM to derail this important and constitutionally mandated timeframe. Having become very obvious that there was no plan to be discussed regarding the preparation for elections, the we were left no option but to walk out of the meeting.This was confirmed in a statement from GECOM where Public Relations Officer Yolanda Ward explained that Thursday’s special meeting was convened to discuss and approve the work schedule derived from the approved work plan for 2019 which was submitted by the secretariat.last_img read more

Willis says fame doesn’t get him much

first_imgWillis, who has three daughters from his marriage to Demi Moore, says he’s not a popular subject in the press these days. “They’re not writing about guys my age much anymore, unless I do something naughty,” he says. “They’re writing about the kids. That’s what drives the pop culture now.” Bruce Willis says being a film star hasn’t brought him many perks. “It’s really … weird to be famous,” the 52-year-old actor tells Vanity Fair magazine in its June issue, on newsstands May 8. “It gets you into restaurants easier than other people, but beyond that, personally, you could set fame on fire.” Willis reprises his role as John McClane in the upcoming “Live Free or Die Hard,” the fourth installment in the action series, which began in 1988. “A lot of the physical stuff that they had me doing (for `Live Free’) was still, let’s say, low-tech,” he tells the magazine. “I don’t bounce as well off the concrete floors as I used to. There are those `ouch’ moments that actually hurt.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

Steve McClaren insists he doesn’t deserve criticism for Newcastle’s failure to sign defender

first_imgNewcastle boss Steve McClaren has defended his decision not to sign any defenders in the January transfer window.The Magpies face a defensive crisis for this weekend’s visit of West Brom.McClaren will be without a specialist left-back and is down to his last two central defenders for a game which increasingly looks like a must-win affair after Chancel Mbemba and Paul Dummett picked up injuries in Wednesday night’s 3-0 defeat at Everton, during which Jamaal Lascelles was sent off.Newcastle fans have questioned why the club decided not to add any defenders to their ranks last month, but McClaren insists he could not have foreseen the current injury crisis.He said: “We had four fit ones (central defenders) all training before the window closed, so no, there’s no criticism there.“We would never envisage that in one game, we would lose three defenders, two centre-halves especially.“The sending-off right in the last minute was really frustrating because Jamaal was playing well and we’ll need Jamaal for the next few games.”Mbemba is the main concern with appointments to see specialists in both London and Belgium about his ankle problem having been arranged, and while McClaren is keeping his fingers crossed, there is a fear that the player’s absence could be lengthy.The former England boss said: “We are still waiting. He’s had one scan and I think he is going for a second opinion down in London and also in Belgium, so by the middle of next week, we will really know the diagnosis and how long he will be out.”McClaren, who will miss Lascelles through suspension for just one game, is more hopeful over Dummett after he aggravated an existing hamstring problem, but midfielder Jack Colback, a potential emergency left-back, will not be involved this weekend, leaving his boss with a major headache.He at least has experienced central defender Steven Taylor as his disposal, although his only football since he damaged a hamstring back in August came in a behind-closed-doors practice match defeat to Sunderland 10 days ago.McClaren said: “He’s the next one in line. It’s great for him. He’s been working hard, it’s been a long time. It’s very, very frustrating for him – he’s a true Geordie, he’s a Newcastle boy and he wears his heart on his sleeve.“We will need that kind of character tomorrow and that commitment from him.” 1 Steve McClaren last_img read more

The Canoga Park/West Hills Chamber of Commerces declared John Parker of Parker Brown Inc. as its Business of the Year. Carolyn Poppert of the West Hills Neighborhood Council earned the Volunteer of the Year award. The chamber also gave its Community Unity Award to numerous local businesses and officials that helped Canoga Park earn the title “All America City” for 2005. Among them were The Community Redevelopment Agency, the Canoga Park and West Hills Neighborhood Councils and the office of Councilman Dennis Zine. The greater Los Angeles Oncology Nursing Society named Cindy Mark, a registered nurse who works at Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center in Burbank, as Staff Nurse of the Year. “Cindy is relentless in her passion for oncology nursing,” oncology department nurse manager Nancy Loporchio said. “She has a love for oncology nursing, and that’s demonstrated in her continued commitment to provide the best care for her patients and their families. She brings inspiration and initiative to her unit.” Mark began working at Providence Saint Joseph’s oncology department in 1994.
