High Court to hand down ruling on PPP case against gerrymandering

first_imgLLA alterationHigh Court Judge Gino Persaud will today send out notices to inform when he will make a decision in a People’s Progressive Party-filed case over the Communities Minister Ronald Bulkan’s changes to several Local Authority Areas (LAAs) that the Party deems gerrymandering.Attorney and PPP/Civic Member of Parliament (MP) Anil Nandlall, is representing the applicant, Bibi Shaddick while Attorney General Basil Williams and a battery of lawyers from his Chambers are appearing on behalf of the State.During heated and tense proceedings on Thursday, both sides presented arguments before Justice Persaud, debating whether or not the Minister was required to make public the seven boundaries that were changed.However, Attorney General Basil Williams outlined that the Minister is not required by law to publish the boundaries. Nandlall highlighted that only the changes to theCommunities Minister Ronald Bulkanseats were published.The lawyer noted since the country is only four days away from the 2018 Local Government Elections (LGE), the ruling will impact future elections. He had said in the past, the Attorney General’s side was deliberately trying to delay the case.Among Shaddick’s several orders of which she petitioned the court, is to bring the Communities Minister’s alterations into the conformity with Local Democratic Organs Act, Chapter 28:09. In so doing, the PPP’s Guyana Elections Commissioner (GECOM) Commissioners wants to have Bulkan’s orders declared null and void.The grounds that Shaddick outlined were that Bulkan failed to issue an order to identify the said boundaries under the Local Democratic Organs Act, making his actions null and void. She meanwhile said that GECOM’s Chief Elections Officer Keith Lowenfield went beyond his exercise of discretion, re-demarcating thePPP GECOM Commissioner Bibi Shaddickexisting constituency boundaries as outlined in the orders sought before the court.The writ, which Guyana Times had seen, also outlined that the purported establishment of seven NDCs without complying with the provisions of the Local Democratic Organs Act is unlawful, ultra vires, null, void and of no effect. She had said that Lowenfield acted with authorisation in this regard, while adding that Minister Bulkan unilaterally made changes to the number of seats in 14 LAAs.last_img read more

first_img“It’s just a shame because everybody needs him,” he said. “He was the one who brought everybody together.” Daniel Correa was a graduate of El Camino Real High School and was learning the plumbing trade. Schultz described her boyfriend as a gift. “He was this guy given to me on a silver platter, and in one second was taken from me so fast for a reason I’ll never understand,” she said. A funeral for Correa is scheduled for 10 a.m. today at Gates Kingsley and Gates Praiswater Mortuary, 6909 Canoga Ave., followed by burial at Oakwood Memorial Park, 22600 Lassen St., Chatsworth. rick.coca@dailynews.com (818) 713-3329160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Correa died from a stab wound to the neck, officials said. Two brothers who were with Correa also were stabbed, one in the neck and the other in the back. Diana Tisinger, 43, of Reseda, was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder in the attack on one of the brothers. Police are looking for an ex-convict, whom they refused to identify, in the slaying of Correa. “We don’t know what caused or started this fight,” said LAPD Detective Mike Pelletier. “We’ve got women getting knocked out. We’ve got guys getting knocked out. We’re trying to sort out each individual’s part in this melee because we’ve got people fighting, people with knives.” Correa’s brother, David Correa, 31, said he hopes police catch whoever is responsible for his brother’s death. WOODLAND HILLS – A kind, funny man who was quick to dance – with or without music – 28-year-old Daniel Correa was considered by many people to be their best friend. And given his easygoing personality and upbeat view of life, Correa’s friends are confounded by his fatal stabbing last weekend outside a Canoga Park bar. “He always had his arm around someone,” said his longtime girlfriend, Jenny Schultz, 25, of Woodland Hills. “He let people know that he loved them.” Correa was fatally wounded about 1 a.m. Sunday outside the Blarney Cove, 22105 Roscoe Blvd. Witnesses told police that a fight erupted in the parking lot between Correa and his friends and another group, and that at least two people in the other party drew knives. last_img read more

DONEGAL MAN COMPLETES INCREDIBLE 3,000KM RUN FOR CHARITY

first_imgA DONEGAL man has completed an incredible 66 back-to-back marathons totaling 3,000km to raise money for the Third World charity Concern.53-year-old Nick North ran all the way from Mozambique to South Africa, took from June 20th until yesterday to complete the gruelling bid to raise cash.Although he wanted to raise €45k, he only managed to get a quarter of that because, he believes, the recession is hitting donations hard. He managed to avoid wild animals, malaria and a host of other obstacles – including the last 20km running in sand – to finish his ordeal.He thanked entrepreneur Denis O’Brien for a generous donation towards his efforts.“Other than the Denis O’Brien Foundation, which made a very generous donation, we have struggled to get the corporate world to back us. I couldn’t even get my running shoes sponsored. Most companies I approached said they really could not afford to help due to the current economic climate,” he said.“What we have raised has come mostly from family, friends and other people around Donegal, who are always great when it comes to this sort of thing,” he added.
