New presidential candidate brings youth, financial skills to table – Jagdeo

first_imgWith the election of former Housing and Water Minister Irfaan Ali as the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) presidential candidate, General Secretary (GS) Bharrat Jagdeo has affirmed that he brings a lot to the table.Speaking with the media on Saturday after the election, Jagdeo pointed to the fact that Ali is a youth, who can resonate with voters and the young population that makes up the majority of Guyana’s demographics.“I think Ali is young; he can resonate with young voters. When you talk about youth, we are the party that lives this. I was the President of Guyana at 35 years old. This party here elected me for that. Ali is 38. He is the youngest of the candidates,” Jagdeo said.“He’s had several years as Minister, in one of the largest ministries. He has delivered house lots to people across every single race and every single religion … and thousands of that. He was in charge of water, another big sector, and made a transformational impact in that period.”He noted that any future Government must have delivering goods and services to the peoplPPP’s Presidential Candidate Irfaan Alie at the forefront of the agenda, and added that while the present Government has failed in this regard, Ali’s experience bodes well for this.The General Secretary then cited Ali’s work in charge of the PPP’s West Demerara grassroots network, especially for the last two Local Government Elections and the General and Regional Elections. He also noted that Ali has been the PPP’s Finance Secretary for years.Jagdeo also debunked assertions that the new presidential hopeful would be overshadowed by him owing to his work as General Secretary. Jagdeo reiterated that both he and Ali would have different roles to play and that he had no intention of abdicating his role as General Secretary.“I have a job as General Secretary of the Party. Here, we’ve selected a presidential candidate. My job as GS of the Party is manifold. It’s to grow the Party; I’ve set myself the task of greater inclusion in the Party.”“Number two is to galvanise this party to win power. That’s the role of a General Secretary. The candidate runs for the elections, but my job is to bring people together and work on a campaign strategy. And the campaign strategy is approved by the Party.”Saturday’s election was conducted by way of secret ballot. Immediately prior to the elections, three candidates withdrew from the contest leaving former Attorney General Anil Nandlall and Ali as the two contestants.Following the passage of the no-confidence motion in the National Assembly on December 21, 2018, the PPP began its search for a presidential candidate.The no-confidence motion brought by the parliamentary Opposition against the Government succeeded when Charrandas Persaud, a former Alliance For Change (AFC) parliamentarian, broke ranks and made a conscience vote in favour of the motion.While Ali will represent the PPP as the presidential candidate, media reports on party affairs in A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change (APNU/AFC) suggest that incumbent President David Granger will run for re-election. …cites grassroots work, performance in Housing and Water Ministries as election factorslast_img read more

Chelsea’s top four bid in tatters as Huddersfield survive

first_imgFifth placed Chelsea’s attempt to salvage a troubled season by finishing in the top four is now out of their hands heading into the final game of the season at Newcastle on Sunday.Tottenham’s 1-0 win over Newcastle on Wednesday means Chelsea can’t make up the four-point gap to their third placed London rivals.Fourth placed Liverpool are two points ahead of Chelsea and, given their vastly superior goal difference, they will condemn the Blues to the Europa League next season if they avoid defeat against Brighton at Anfield on Sunday.That would be a suitably downbeat conclusion to a lacklustre title defence from Chelsea and could prove the last straw for Blues owner Roman Abramovich as he reportedly plans to part ways with Conte.Conte appears set to leave after just two years in charge following a contentious campaign marred by the Italian’s feud with the Chelsea hierarchy over their failure to back his transfer plans.The 48-year-old, who has one year left on his contract, has seen a host of leading managers linked with his job in recent weeks and added fuel to the fire this week when he said his future would be revealed after the FA Cup final against Manchester United on May 19.Time to celebrate: Huddersfield Town coach David Wagner and his assistant Christoph Buhler celebrate survival© AFP Ben STANSALLHuddersfield’s reward for a tenacious display is another season among English football’s elite after a superb result that seals their safety with a game in spare.Fresh from their impressive 0-0 draw at champions Manchester City on Sunday, Huddersfield boss David Wagner had urged his players “to make an impossible task possible” by sealing their top-flight status at the Bridge.Wagner’s side rose to the challenge with a heroic effort that earns them an unexpected second season among the elite.In what could be Conte’s final home match, he made six changes to the side that beat Champions League finalists Liverpool 1-0 on Sunday, with Olivier Giroud and Eden Hazard surprisingly left on the bench.It was a gamble that backfired.Antonio Rudiger produced a candidate for miss of the season as the Chelsea defender somehow shot wide from virtually on the goal-line.– Fighting for survival –Alvaro Morata has endured a miserable first season with Chelsea and the misfiring Spain striker wasted a golden opportunity when he took a heavy touch as he rounded Jonas Lossl and could only cross harmlessly from a tight angle.As the tension mounted, referee Lee Mason infuriated Chelsea when he blew for half-time without allowing them to take a corner he had awarded seconds earlier, provoking several players to angrily surround the official.If that was a symbol of Chelsea’s frustration, there was worse to come after the interval.Rudiger headed wastefully over from Willian’s free-kick, then Huddersfield took the lead with their first serious attack in the 50th minute.When Aaron Mooy played a pass over the top of the Chelsea defence, Blues goalkeeper Willy Caballero came rushing to the edge of the area in a bid to clear.But Depoitre beat Caballero to the ball and in the process left him sprawled on the turf, giving the Belgian striker time to clip his shot past Rudiger for his first goal since December.Conte responded by sending on Giroud and Hazard and Chelsea grabbed a bizarre equaliser in the 62nd minute.Azpilicueta drilled over a low cross that prompted a panicked clearance from Mathias Zanka and the ball hit Alonso in the face before rebounding into the Huddersfield net.Conte’s side to laid siege to the Huddersfield goal.But the visitors, fighting for survival, threw their bodies in the way time and again before Lossl superbly pushed Andreas Christensen’s header onto the post.No wonder Conte held his head in his hands.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Huddersfield goalkeeper Jonas Lossl is mobbed by team-mates after a string of fine saves kept the scoreline level. Photo/COURTESYLONDON, United Kingdom, May 9 – Chelsea’s bid to qualify for the Champions League suffered a hammer blow as Huddersfield secured their Premier League survival with a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.Antonio Conte’s side fell behind to Laurent Depoitre’s second half strike and although Marcos Alonso bagged a fortuitous equaliser, the Blues couldn’t find a priceless winner.last_img read more

Broader horizons

first_imgState Sen. Gil Cedillo, D-Los Angeles, has been on a mission in recent years to pass a bill allowing illegal immigrants to obtain California driver’s licenses. He almost succeeded at it two years ago, when Gov. Gray Davis was fighting for his job and signed any legislation that might earn him more votes in the recall election. That was quashed in a deal that soured with the current governor. In any case, the dedication to the cause earned Cedillo the moniker of “One-Bill Gil.” But Cedillo has outgrown that nickname this year by broadening his political horizons. Cedillo is taking on the issue of homelessness, which affects his downtown district quite seriously. He is currently in New York City, leading a delegation that will study the Big Apple’s success with reducing homelessness in Times Square. The senator intends to introduce a number of new bills that will address some of Los Angeles’ homeless problems, such as so-called “dumping” of homeless people on Skid Row and crackdowns on drug sales. It’s good to see Cedillo turn his attention to other important issues.

first_imgTHE judges hated it – but judging by the reaction of his fans around the world, they loved Daniel O’Donnell in his latest Strictly performanceDaniel donned a ‘T-Bird’ leather jacket and swung his hips on Strictly as Danny Zuko from Grease – although there was not enough hip action according to the judges. With a total score of 21 out of 40 from the judges, it was all a little too clean and safe according to Craig Revel Horwood, Darcey Bussell, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli.Speaking about O’Donnell and partner Kristina Rihanoff’s cha-cha-cha to Summer Nights from the movie Grease, Darcey Bussell said: “You had such a good time as John Travolta. It was a little soft; I would have liked it to be cleaner and crisper. You need to really exaggerate your moves.”Head judge Len Goodman said: “It wasn’t all Tears on my Pillow – but it certainly wasn’t Greased Lightenin’. It was a mix between Summer Nights and Last of the Summer Wine.”Watch and judge for yourself above – and let’s get behind Daniel!  DDTV: WATCH DANIEL ON STRICTLY – HE WASN’T THAT BAD WAS HE? was last modified: October 11th, 2015 by John2Share 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)last_img read more
