Urey Concerned over Number of Excess Ballots

admin no comments

first_imgUrey with Chief Imam of Liberia, Ali Krayee“While we know there are excess ballot papers always, this number is alarming. Firstly, no one expects the entire 2.1 million registered voters to vote on October 10th and so there is no need to bring more than 20 percent excess ballot papers,” Mr. Urey said.The ALP standard-bearer said he believes that about 75 to 80 percent of the registered voters will show up for the elections to vote, which already indicates that there will be some extra ballot papers.Mr. Urey hoped that representatives from political parties, elections’ observers and the international community will be there to supervise the distribution of the ballots and ensure that the excess ballots are fully monitored.“We believe this election should be free, fair, transparent and peaceful because most often we don’t talk about the peaceful aspect. Most often, the international community is only concerned about whether the elections were peaceful, but the ALP looks forward to free, fair and transparent elections,” Mr. Urey said.Commenting on the generational change issue, Mr. Urey said while he agreed with the president’s views, it should be about people who are prepared and qualified educationally.This, he said, “can be time for younger people to take over the government, but they must be competent young people. The president needed to include competent, qualified and experienced and not just on generational change because we want to change.”On the Imams’ visit, he said “We are privileged to receive some eminent personalities. We have some time to explain to them how we believe they should be part of this entire process and they are able to listen to us.”The ALP also explained its role and contributions to the Muslim community over the years, which some have admitted to and noted that the ALP will continue to work with all Liberians.The Chief Imam, Ali Krayee, said they were pleased to visit the ALP standard bearer and also to pray with him ahead of the elections.He said the Imam Council of Liberia will continue to work in the interest of Liberia, even after the elections, to ensure that Liberia is peaceful.“We always say that those who serve and work in the humanity of God must pray for God to continue to bless us and we are pleased that the ALP can request our presence and to highlight some of the things done within the Muslim community,” Imam Karyee said.“We heard that elections’ observers are in Liberia now, especially international observers and many times, they are interested in the process of vote casting and the way the results come out. This time, we don’t want them to just observe the casting of the votes, but to also assure us that what transpires at polling centers actually continue to the head office of NEC where the results will be announced,” Imam Karyee said.Religious communities have increased their involvement in the political development leading to the October 10th elections. They have appealed to God to bless electorates to avoid anything that could lead the country into unnecessary events. The Christian community has supplicated to God, urging Christians to demonstrate love for country and work together with other faiths, particularly the Muslim Community, to ensure sustainable peace for the country.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window) Urey interacts with imams, explains ALP contributions to Muslim Community“It tends to undermine conduct of peaceful elections,” he says.Although the National Elections Commission (NEC) chairman Jerome G. Korkoya has clarified the commission’s decision to bring in excess presidential ballots for the October 10 elections, the standard bearer of the opposition All Liberian Party (ALP), said the excess ballot papers is alarming.Korkoya’s explanation was in response to comments and questions from the public regarding the commission’s decision to bring into the country nearly one million excess presidential ballots.But Mr. Benoni Urey said the excess ballot papers were something to keep the public in worry, “Because it tends to undermine the conduct of the peaceful elections.”Mr. Urey made the comments yesterday in Monrovia when a group of Imams, headed by Liberia’s Chief Imam Ali Krayee, visited him to pray ahead of the upcoming elections, on the ALP’s invitation.last_img read more

Jordan’s career day gives lift to Raiders, 19-13

admin no comments

first_img Enter LaMont Jordan. The Raiders’ other big acquisition on offense ran for a career-high 126 yards and a score, Sebastian Janikowski kicked four field goals and Oakland’s defense mounted a late goal-line stand in a 19-13 win Sunday. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 “I will forever look at it as teams saying we can’t run the ball,” said Jordan, who bounced back from a 19-yard performance last week against Philadelphia. “I encourage defenses to play that way. If you play two-deep defense against us with the way we’re capable of running the ball … we are going to run the ball down your throat. I think today was a true test of that.” A week after gaining just 21 yards as a team, Jordan and the offensive line took it upon themselves to fix the running game. They succeeded from the start, as Jordan frequently got tough yards up the middle. “We were determined to get running yards, especially after being shut down last week,” offensive lineman Barry Sims said. “We really wanted to get LaMont going. And you can’t go when there’s no where to go, so we really wanted to get some lanes opened up for him.” The Cowboys kept it interesting until the final 2 minutes. Dallas (2-2), trailing 19-13 after Janikowski’s 43-yard field goal with 4:29 left, drove inside the 5-yard line with help from a 57-yard pass from Drew Bledsoe to Terry Glenn. But Tommy Kelly dropped Julius Jones for a 2-yard loss on second down from the 3, and Bledsoe followed with incompletions to Keyshawn Johnson and Glenn to turn it over with 1:45 to go. Jason Witten was open in the end zone on the last play, but Bledsoe said he had chosen to go toward Glenn’s side and didn’t see Witten. “It’s a three-step drop. He just has to make a decision to go the other way with the ball,” Witten said. “I’m not doubting his decision. He’s got Keyshawn and Terry over there. He’s got to make a quick decision and go with it. I was open. That’s for sure.” Jordan then ran twice for a first down and Oakland (1-3) ran out the clock to head into next week’s bye with a much-needed win. Kerry Collins threw to Moss only three times in the opening half. He connected on the long pass on the first drive to set up Janikowski’s 30-yard field goal and threw in his direction on back-to-back plays to open the second quarter. Moss, who had 10 touchdowns in his first five games against Dallas, finished with four receptions for 123 yards and remained unbeaten in six games against the Cowboys. Collins finished 13 for 23 for 218 yards, extending his streak without an interception to a career-high 149 passes, dating to last season. “I definitely didn’t play my best game today but I didn’t turn it over and I made some smart decisions at times that ultimately helped us win the ballgame,” Collins said. “The other guys picked me up today. LaMont and the other guys up front did an excellent job.” Oakland’s defense played a big role in holding Jones to 76 yards on 22 carries and limiting Dallas to 146 yards through three quarters. “I know they think Julius Jones is the next Emmitt Smith,” Oakland safety Stuart Schweigert said. “I played against the guy in college and he’s a good running back but he’s not a great running back. We knew we were going to shut down the running. That allowed us to get some sacks and pressure on Bledsoe.” Janikowski, who missed four field goals the first three games, kicked short field goals in the first half and a 49- and 43-yarder in the fourth quarter. “I didn’t change a thing,” Janikowski said. “I worked the whole week with the same approach I always do.” Bledsoe hit Patrick Crayton on a 63-yard touchdown pass midway through the fourth quarter to make it 16-13. Bledsoe finished 11 of 26 for 212 yards. “We feel like we missed out on an opportunity here,” Bledsoe said. “We made a lot of mistakes in the ballgame that really hurt us in the end.” The Raiders, the most penalized team in the NFL, committed 13 more infractions, including three in the first 74 seconds of the fourth quarter. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

After that, his biggest contribution to the Raiders’ first win came in the running game. But the talented receiver didn’t run a long reverse or throw a big downfield block. His presence instead kept the Cowboys’ safeties away from the line. last_img read more
