admin no comments

first_imgThe House of Representatives has endorsed the establishment of seven Special Legislative Constituencies for which an additional seven members would be elected, in addition to the already 73, totaling 81members in the House.The motion indicated that there would be five seats for women to be divided among five regions; while the youth and persons living with disabilities will have their respective seats.Deputy Speaker Hans M. Barchue broke the tie to concur with the Senate on the Affirmative Action for Equal Participation and Representation Act after a vote of 18-18, for which some of the lawmakers accused Senior Stenographer Conmicks Chea of inflating the votes in favor of the pro-Tyler lawmakers to compel a draw.The Senate’s version of the Affirmative Action for Equal Participation and Representation provides the establishment of 21 Special Legislative Constituencies for which an additional 21 members of the House of Representatives shall be elected – with 15 seats for women, 3 seats each for the youth and persons living with disabilities.The House’s concurrence, which has altered the Senate’s account, would compel a Conference Committee comprised of both Houses to reconcile the Affirmative Action for Equal Participation and Representation Act.However, Maryland County Representative Dr. Bhofal Chambers has filed a motion of reconsideration for the vote on the passage of the Affirmative Action for Equal Participation and Representation Act, which would be considered today, Friday, September 30, in a Special Session. It may be recalled that on August 25, it was reported that the Senate unanimously passed the “Affirmative Action for Equal Participation and Representation Act of 2016,” which was forwarded to the House of Representative for concurrence.At Wednesday’s public hearing, Gender Minister Julia Duncan Cassell told the 28-member House’s Joint Committee that the Affirmative Action Bill aims to elevate the level of equitable representation and participation in the governance process. The Joint Committee comprisedGender, Judiciary, Good Governance and Election & Inauguration.The Gender Minister reminded the Legislature that Article 5 (a) of the Constitution empowers the Legislature to enact laws that promote the realization of social justice and increase citizens’ access for political and economic participation.“There are international instruments to which Liberia is a signatory and acceded to, which call for the enactment of affirmative action legislation for the empowerment of women, youth and persons living with disabilities,” she said.“ECOWAS and AU Protocols, CEDAW, CRPD, the Beijing Declaration, and the African Youth Charter are some of the international instruments supportive of affirmative action to accelerate their participation in politics for adequate representation.”The National Chairperson of the National Civil Society Council, Madam Frances R. Deigh Greaves; the Vice President for Association of Female Lawyers in Liberia (AFELL), Atty. Nadia S. Kamara; Mrs. Daintowon Domah Payebaye, representing the disabled community; and Mr. Amos Williams, Deputy Secretary General for Programs of the Federation of Liberian Youths (FLY) are among Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) that also urged the Legislature to enact the Affirmative Action Bill.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgClub Notes – Naomh Adhamhnáin – 01.10.12The Seniors put in a very disappointing display against Kilcar in the Championship in O’Donnell Park on Sunday and they have a huge mountain to climb in Towney next week in the return leg. The Reserves fared better in their game, winning by 10 points to 5 and will be hopeful they can advance next week.The Minors still await details of their League semi-final replay and their Championship semi-final. The U15 Boys  are also trying to schedule their Northern final against Gaoth Dobhair in the coming week, see the club e-mail and facebook page for details when they are announced.The U13 Div. 1 Boys completed the League section of their campaign with  a good win over Gaoth Dobhair to finish with  a 100% record and qualify for the Northern Board Final. The Div. 2 team drew 5-08 to 5-08 with the Gaels on Monday night to complete their campaign. The Div. 3 team were defeated by N. Padraig, Muff in their final game on Friday.The Minor Girls footballers have qualified for the Co. semi-finals after a 2 point win away to Moville on Friday. The U16’s have also reached their Co. final after defeating Fanad Gaels last week. Opponents, Dates and venues to be confirmed.Well done to St Eunan’s U13 Hurlers that beat the Gaels in the North West League. They also had a walk-over over Coleraine. There will be a hurling meeting on Wednesday 3rd Oct at 7pm. There was a fantastic turnout on Saturday in O’Donnell Park for our attempt to beat the world record for the Largest GAA Training Session. We narrowly failed to claim the record, missingout by just 184 people (the record is 2,185 and we had 2,002!). Special thanks to Rory Kavanagh, Kevin Rafferty and Frank McGlynn who brought Sam Maguire and posed for pictures with all the families in attendance.The Training Pitch is in bad shape at the minute. Please use common sense when choosing what area to train in for the benefit of everyone.This week’s lotto numbers will be sent in a club e-mail later in the week. They are also available in Blake’s Bar.   GAA: ST EUNAN’S GAA CLUB NEWS was last modified: October 2nd, 2012 by BrendaShare 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:GAA: ST EUNAN’S GAA CLUB NEWSlast_img read more
