Reduction of Parties Will Enhance Understanding of Political Manifestos

first_imgThe May 9, 2017 edition of the Daily Observer highlighted the call by Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) for a reduction in the number of political parties in Liberia.Although they did not clearly state why the number of political parties should be reduced and to what number, the five Civil Society Organizations—NYAYMOTE, Pentecostal Mission Unlimited (PMU), Liberia Democracy Initiative (LMDI), Institute for Research and Democratic Development (IREDD) and SAIL urged the Liberian Senate to consider on its floor the eight propositions forwarded by the House of Representatives for discussion and concurrence.The Constitution Review Committee (CRC) submitted to the Legislature 25 propositions for enactment into law. One of these propositions called for “the Reduction in number of political parties.” The House of Representatives chose eight of the propositions submitted. Among the propositions left out was the one calling for the reduction in the number of political parties.Again, the CSOs did not state how this particular proposition should be formulated for the referendum, since it is not among the propositions to be considered by the Senate.But the reduction in number of political parties has some very serious advantages. First, such reduction would help the electorate to understand better the various parties’ manifestos, since they would be limited to a number that electorates could quickly grasp and remember. One should note that in Liberia, political debates are not publicly held for candidates to appear to deliver their platforms and promises, or to explain how they will implement deliverables contained in the platforms. As a result, it is difficult to know what a candidate really has in his/her platform. If debates were even part of our political culture, it would be cost intensive and time consuming to deal with 24 political parties and probably as many candidates, in addition to those vying for the Legislature.Secondly, multiplicity of political parties in Liberia is undermining reconciliation and fueling divisions in a society already divided along tribal and sectional lines. We recall that in the 2011 presidential election, tribal voting manifested itself when the Gio and Mano people of Nimba overwhelmingly voted Prince Johnson not because he had a convincing manifesto, but because he was their kinsman. Cllr. Charles Walker Brumskine could not hide it on May 1, 2011 when he publicly said in Buchanan, “Bassa people, if you want development, vote a Bassa man and the Liberty Party.” He also remarked that the time had come to “eat dumboy in the Executive Mansion.” Not that the Bassa dish had never been served there before, but the remark suggests a sense of exclusive entitlement to the Liberian Presidency by the Bassa tribe. The risk of fueling division among peoples cannot be overstated here.There is no substantive evidence of the current membership of LP, but we also recall that in 2011, Brumskine got more votes in Grand Bassa because he is from that County. These instances are but a few of what could happen in our politics as a result of the proliferation of political parties.The Liberian Constitution calls for multi-party democracy. Article 77 (a) states: “Since the essence of democracy is free competition of ideas expressed by political parties and political groups as well as by individuals, parties may freely be established to advocate the political opinions of the people. Laws, regulations, decrees or measures which might have the effect of creating a one-party state shall be declared unconstitutional.” This constitutional provision, therefore, allows for many political parties and independent candidates. However, multi-party democracy, being a system in which multiple political parties across the political spectrum contest in national elections, and the Constitution insisting that a one-party state is unconstitutional, we can have three or four political parties in the country, since this is within the confines of the Constitution.The plea by the CSOs for a reduction in the number of political parties is, therefore, most cogent and timely. The constitution review process was aimed at soliciting views of Liberians on constitutional issues. Their lawmakers, however, disregarded some of the salient issues, including “Reduction of Political Parties.” We are of the conviction that reducing the number of political parties will help to institutionalize existing parties, and encourage every Liberian to align him or herself with any party, regardless of ethnic or sectional background.The plea by the CSOs is also in compliance with Article 17 of the Constitution, since the people have the right to petition their representatives or the government for redress of grievances. Democracy is government of the people, for the people and by the people. The people have raised their concern to reduce the number of political parties. Let the Legislature consider the people’s views and act accordingly.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

BC adds additional addiction treatment training

first_imgSubstance abuse is a significant drain on Canada’s 21st century economy as a result of its impact on the heath care and criminal justice systems and in 2006 the Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse released the results of a 2002 study, which estimated the total societal cost of substance abuse at 39.8 billion dollars, that’s $1,267 for every Canadian. FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – As the province continues to deal with a wave of deaths related to opioids, a new report is out with a handful of recommendations calling on current and incoming doctors and nurses to be armed with additional addiction tools.The study, co-authored by Doctor Evan Wood with the BC Centre for Excellence in HIV AIDS, contends doctors across the country don’t know enough about treating drug addiction. It says the number of skilled addiction treatment providers is “particularly dire” in more rural areas and in BC strategies must be developed to support programs outside the Lower Mainland. – Advertisement -Doctor Wood has called for more formal training to help doctors diagnose and treat the growing epidemic of addiction and among those supporting him is Doctor Seonaid Nolan, a Clinical Assistant Professor at UBC.She adds across  the province, there are only 25 formally trained addiction specialists registered with the American Board of Addiction Medicine, and among its’ recommendations, the study seeks further investment in addiction training at medical schools and continuing education for health professionals.The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada is in the process of looking at addiction medicine as a specialty and Doctor Nolan says professionals armed with extra addiction tools should be paid more.Advertisementlast_img read more

Real Madrid stunned as Zidane quits at the top

first_img0Shares0000Zinedine Zidane is the only coach in history to win three Champions Leagues in a row © AFP / PIERRE-PHILIPPE MARCOUMADRID, Spain, May 31 – Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane dropped a bombshell Thursday, quitting the Spanish giants just days after winning the Champions League for a record third year in a row.The 45-year-old former international decided to leave at the top saying it was time for a change for himself and the club and admitting he was unsure of his ability to maintain his winning record at Real. But he said no other club was involved in his decision to part ways with Real and although experts have linked him to the French national team coaching job, Zidane insisted he is eyeing no other position at this time.“I have taken the decision to not continue next year as Real Madrid coach,” the Frenchman told a hastily convened press conference.“This club deserves to continue to win and needs a change” he said, adding that he believed the “moment has come.”“After three years the club needs another discourse, another method of working,” he addedZidane said he was unsure of his ability to inspire the team to more victories.“I don’t see myself continuing to win this year and I am a winner, I don’t like to lose,” added Zidane, who was under contract with Real until 2020.“I have thought a lot about this decision and I can’t go back on it.”Real beat Liverpool 3-1 in the final in Kiev on Saturday, making Zidane the first coach in history to win three successive Champions League titles.Zidane has now won nine trophies since replacing Rafael Benitez in the Santiago Bernabeu dugout in January 2016.When Benitez was sacked in January 2016, Barcelona daily Mundo Deportivo dismissed Zidane as merely a “sticking plaster”, who would be replaced quickly by a permanent coach.But Zidane won the confidence of players and the rest is history.Real’s captain Sergio Ramos tweeted his reaction, in English and Spanish, above a photo of the two men with the Champions League trophy.“As a player and coach you decided to say goodbye at the top. Thank you for two and a half incredible years. Your legacy will never be erased, one of the most successful chapters in the history of our beloved realmadrid,” Ramos wrote.At the press conference Zidane was flanked by Real Madrid president Florentino Perez who said Zidane’s announcement was “totally unexpected”.“This is a sad day,” Perez said.“This house will be his family forever, he triumphed and won everything, as you know. I thank him for his commitment, his passion. I have no doubt that he will return.”Reports in Britain say Real may now try to lure Mauricio Pochettino to Madrid from English Premier League club Tottenham.The Argentinian has just signed a five-year contract to remain at Tottenham, but some reports said that might contain a get-out clause in the event of an approach from Real.Many British bookmakers however make former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger their favourite as speculation ran rampant over the identity of the next man in the Madrid hot seat.– Stunning blow –Zidane said his decision had nothing to do with Real icon Cristiano Ronaldo hinting that he will also leave the club following the Champions League triumph on Saturday.It had perhaps more to do with the side’s mixed performance in La Liga, where they finished a disappointing third, and were left for dead by champions and bitter rivals Barcelona.“We say it, it was complicated this year in the league, these are moments that I don’t forget,” he said.Zidane’s bombshell decision came 12 years after another stunning blow brought a controversial close to the midfielder’s international career.He earned a red card in the 2006 World Cup final, probably costing France the title, for his full-blooded headbutt against Italian Marco Materazzi.Considered one of the all-time greats as a player, his career included winning the 1998 World Cup with France and scoring the winning goal in the 2002 Champions League final for Real against Beyer Leverkusen.The next step for the former Real Madrid star player is unclear but he has time on his side.Guy Lacombe, Zidane’s first coach when he joined AS Cannes, his first professional club, in 1988, said that there was little left to challenge the coach who had already won virtually everything.“But there is one thing…,” Lacombe told AFP. “He would like one day to coach the French national team. He has made no secret of that ambition.“It will happen at the right time. In the right conditions. There is no rush.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Bush vows to end ‘addiction to oil’

first_imgWASHINGTON (AP) – Hampered by huge budget deficits and an unpopular war, President Bush on Tuesday called for training 70,000 math and science teachers to improve the nation’s competitiveness and declared that America must break its dependence on Mideast oil. “America is addicted to oil, which is often imported from unstable parts of the world,” Bush said as he sought to drive the election-year agenda in his annual State of the Union address. He declared that the “the state of our union is strong” despite Americans’ anxieties about the war in Iraq, the economy, soaring energy costs and rising energy prices. Oil prices are inching toward $70 a barrel, throwing a cloud over the economy and pinching Americans’ pocketbooks. Bush called for increased federal research into alternative fuels such as ethanol made from weeds or wood chips instead of corn. Bush’s address came amid a changing of the guard elsewhere in Washington. Conservative judge Samuel Alito was sworn in as a new Supreme Court justice, replacing Sandra Day O’Connor, who has been a moderate swing vote. The Senate also confirmed Ben Bernanke to be chairman of the Federal Reserve, replacing Alan Greenspan after 18 1/2 years in the influential job. Alito was in the House chamber, alongside new Chief Justice John Roberts, another Bush nominee, and Justices Stephen Breyer and Clarence Thomas. Facing budget deficits that may approach or exceed $400 billion this year, Bush had no room for expensive, new initiatives. Frustrated by Congress’ refusal to consider his Social Security overhaul, Bush switched gears and asked lawmakers to join him in naming a commission to examine the impact of Baby Boom retirements on Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid costs. Spending on those three programs alone will be almost 60 percent of the federal budget by 2030, Bush said. Three years from leaving office, Bush went before the nation as a politically weakened president after the toughest year of his administration. With Americans anxious about the economy, weary of the Iraq war and unhappy about the administration’s response to Hurricane Katrina, Bush’s job approval rating is in the anemic high 30s to low 40s. Health care is a priority for both parties, particularly since nearly 46 million Americans lack insurance. Democrats say that in 2005 alone, the number of uninsured grew by nearly a million. “Keeping American competitive requires affordable health care,” the president said. Bush proposed greater tax benefits for health saving accounts, the high-deductible health care plan that allows people to contribute money tax-free to 401(k)-like health savings plans, as a way to expand their use. He said lawmakers also must allow workers to take the coverage with them as they change jobs. As he has in every State of the Union address to some extent, Bush said the United States must curb its reliance on foreign oil imports. He called for more research on batteries for hybrid and electric cars and work on alternative fuels to produce ethanol from wood chips, stalks or switch grass. “Our goal is to make this new kind of ethanol practical and competitive within six years,” the president said. “Breakthroughs on this and other new technologies will help us reach another great goal: to replace more than 75 percent of our oil imports from the Middle East by 2025. By targeting only Mideast oil, Bush was ignoring the largest sources of American petroleum consumption _ Mexico and Canada. Imports of oil and refined product from the Persian Gulf make up less than a fifth of all imports and 11 percent of total consumption, according to Energy Department statistics. The president addressed the nation from the House chamber before members of the House and Senate, justices of the Supreme Court, foreign dignitaries, Cabinet secretaries and other VIPs. Virginia Gov. Timothy M. Kaine, chosen to deliver the response for the Democrats, scolded Bush on the soaring national debt, the frustrated effort to rebuild the hurricane-battered Gulf Coast, Medicaid cuts and other issues. On Iraq, Kaine said that Americans were given “inaccurate information about the reasons for invading” and that troops were given body armor that was inadequate. “The federal government should serve the American people,” the newly elected governor said in excerpts released ahead of his speech. “But that mission is frustrated by this administration’s poor choices and bad management. The speeches of Bush and Kaine set a tough tone for November’s midterm elections for House and Senate members and most of the nation’s governors. Bush divided his address between problems at home and abroad. With the war in Iraq about to enter its fourth year and more than 2,240 American troops killed, Bush said the nation must not falter in what he called the central front in the war on terror. Bush did not offer any timetable for bringing American troops home from Iraq. There are about 138,000 U.S. troops in Iraq, down from about 160,000 at the time of the January elections. “There is no peace in retreat,” the president said. “And there is no honor in retreat.” Although the United States went to war on the faulty premise that Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein possessed weapons of mass destruction, Bush said, “Hindsight alone is not wisdom. And second-guessing is not a strategy.” Despite recent elections in Iraq, Lebanon and the Palestinian territories that have given rise to religious-based parties with views sometimes hostile to the West, Bush pressed Saudi Arabia and Egypt _ longtime allies that Washington is loath to challenge too aggressively _ to provide greater freedoms to their citizens. “Every step toward freedom in the world makes our country safer, and so we will act boldly in freedom’s cause,” Bush said. “Democracies in the Middle East will not look like our own because they will reflect the traditions of their own citizens. Yet liberty is the future of every nation in the Middle East.” He urged Hamas to “recognize Israel, disarm, reject terrorism and work for lasting peace.” Bush said the United States and its allies were united in insisting that Iran not develop nuclear weapons. Speaking directly to the Iranian people, Bush looked toward a different future for their country and said the United States “hopes one day to be the closest of friends with a free and democratic Iran.” Bush projected an air of optimism in a time of anxiety about the economy, the war and other problems. “Americans should not fear our economic future because we intend to shape it,” he said. The president renewed his oft-stated goal for Congress to make permanent the tax cuts enacted during his presidency. “If we do nothing, American families will face a massive tax increase they do not expect and will not welcome,” he said. Bush called for greater public spending on basic science research and more money for math and science education. He proposed an initiative to train 70,000 high school teachers to lead advanced-placement courses in math and science. In addition, he urged bringing 30,0000 math and science professionals into the classrooms to teach. “We need to encourage children to take more math and science and make sure those courses are rigorous enough to compete with other nations,” the president said.
