President David Granger will on Thursday address the Parliament of Guyana, when the session opens after being in recess for two months. The Head of State said Government will be pushing a critically important legislative agenda which addresses good governance and national development. Additionally, the President’s address comes ahead of the reading of the 2017 National Budget.“It… is a very good opportunity for us to let the nation know how we intend to govern the country during the financial year 2017 and so in broad outline, we are looking at the financial plan that is the Budget, which is going to be presented early December or late November. That will have the effect of actually starting in January 2017, so that people would know what the figures are… but we also want to lay out our legislative agenda and our broad policy for governance in terms of our social and poverty alleviation programmes and most important our green agenda,” the Head of State said, during an interview at State house on Friday.Chief Whip for the Government and Social Cohesion Minister, Amna Ally, in an invited comment, said that the legislative agenda has been set based on the importance Government places on strong governance, security and youth development. She added that the ultimate goal is a better life for all Guyanese.She noted that several of the Bills have been exposed to public consultation. One of the items at the top of the agenda for this session, the Chief Whip said, is the adoption of the National Youth Policy, which she said has been hanging for quite some time and it is, therefore, imperative that this be given the necessary attention.Among the bills Government is looking to give its attention to when Parliament reopens on Thursday are the Cybercrime Bill 2016 (currently at the Select Committee), the Tobacco Bill, the Whistle Blowers Bill and the Witness Protection Bill.
– Granger tells UN forum in KenyaPresident David Granger on Monday addressed the high-level event on Combating Pollution in the Extractive Industries at the United Nations Environment Assembly in Nairobi, Kenya, where he said that the people must come before any profits, as the world’s natural resources are the patrimony of all humanity. He also used the opportunity to propose a three pronged approach, which can help primarily small states with their fight against pollution and the protection of the environment.“People, therefore, must be at the heart of the development of our natural resources. People must come before profits. The pursuit of profits has been accompanied, over the past century, by an exponential increase in extractive industries. This expansion, however, has aggravated environmental damage, which can have a long-lasting and harmful negative impact… on human dignity and well-being,” the President said.President David Granger at the United Nations Environment Assembly in Nairobi, Kenya (UNEA photo)According to a release from the Ministry of the Presidency, the Head of State said pollution in the extractive industries threatens environmental security and it increases human vulnerability to human-induced environmental degradation and impacts on human security. While extractive industries have made an inestimable contribution to the economies of low-income and middle-income countries, the President said these measurable economic benefits are associated with air pollution, biodiversity loss, freshwater and oceanic contamination, greenhouse gas emissions, land degradation and resource depletion.“Pollution, within extractive industries, threatens human well-being and life. It can undermine production, impair human health and damage the physical environment. Environmental security, therefore, is a crosscutting concern with economic, political and social implications. Combatting pollution in extractive industries requires a holistic response,” he said.On this note, the Head of State said that Guyana is prepared to play its part and is pursuing a holistic approach to the exploitation of its natural resources. “Guyana’s ‘Green State Development Strategy’ will become our blueprint for moving towards becoming a ‘green state.’ The ‘green state’ will exemplify the policy of placing people before profits. The ‘green state’ will demonstrate how our extractive industries – bauxite, diamond and gold mining and logging – can be aligned with the protection of our environment, the preservation of our biodiversity and the promotion of the generation of energy from renewable sources. The ‘green state’ will become a model of environmental stewardship. It will demonstrate the signal role, which a small state can play in protecting the world’s air, water and land from the threat of pollution,” he said.However, the Head of State, who has been pushing the ‘green’ agenda since his assumption to office, said Guyana cannot do it alone and requires international cooperation, international organisation and information, education and communication.“International cooperation should be strengthened to ensure that states, particularly small states, can benefit from transfer of technologies and access to international financing to support programmes to reduce pollution. Guyana looks forward to increased international cooperation between large and small states in combating pollution. Guyana recognises the need for an international organisation to drive greater international cooperation, collaboration and coordination to ensure a pollution free-planet and Information, education and communication must be extended through a sustained campaign aimed at raising awareness of the urgency of eliminating pollution at the level of citizen, household and community,” he said.Guyana has already begun taking steps to reduce the level of pollution in its extractive industries. In September, the Head of State travelled to Geneva, Switzerland for the first Conference of the Parties (COP) to the Minamata Convention, where he reassured the international community that Guyana will not only reduce its use of mercury in the mining industry, but will work to eliminate the practice.
“Before any decision is taken it is important that discussions are held on the operations and logistics of an increase in size of the tournament in Qatar,” said a spokesperson for Qatar’s Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy in a statement.“Regardless of the outcome – we are confident in our ability to deliver a successful World Cup in 2022.”Qatar was responding to a request by the South American Football Confederation (CONMEBOL), which on April 12 at its congress formally asked FIFA to introduce the plan to expand team numbers in time for Qatar.Football’s governing body had already agreed to enlarge the tournament from the current 32 teams — which is how many are currently scheduled to play in Qatar — for the 2026 tournament.CONMEBOL president Alejandro Dominguez made the request in a letter handed to Gianni Infantino.The FIFA president has called the proposal a “very interesting idea”.It could however present problems for Qatar.The tournament has already been shortened to 28 days to accommodate the switch to playing the tournament in November and December.By contrast, the World Cup in Russia this year will be played over 32 days.Qatar, which is spending $500 million a week on the first World Cup staged in the Middle East, is currently only planning to use eight venues in 2022.Again, by contrast, Russia will use 12.FIFA is yet to make a final decision on the number of stadiums to use in 2022.One solution may be for Qatar, which has called its World Cup one for the Middle East region, to sanction holding some matches elsewhere in the Gulf.However, that is complicated by the fact Qatar is at the centre of fractious ongoing regional political dispute.For the past 10 months, the World Cup host has been isolated by a group of former allied neighbouring countries led by Saudi Arabia which accuse Doha of supporting terrorism.Qatar rejects the charges and claims it neighbours want regime change.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000A request by the South American Football Confederation that the 2022 World Cup be enlarged from 32 to 48 teams might present problems for the host Qatar © AFP/File / KARIM JAAFARDOHA, Qatar, Apr 14 – Qatar World Cup organisers on Saturday told FIFA it was “important” to hold talks before any final decision was taken to expand the 2022 tournament to 48 teams.In the first response by the Gulf nation since the shock news that FIFA is looking at bringing forward its plan to increase the number of World Cup teams by four years, Qatar also said it was confident it could still deliver a “successful” tournament.

Michael Carrick has replaced Wayne Rooney as Manchester United captain 1 Michael Carrick has been named permanent Manchester United captain, replacing Wayne Rooney following the forward’s transfer to Everton.The 35-year-old midfielder has worn the armband on occasion in recent years, and has stepped up from the vice captain role he fulfilled last season.The appointment was revealed on United’s official Twitter account, with the following message sent out: ‘Congratulations to @carras16 – our new #MUFC captain!’Carrick has played 459 games for the Red Devils since moving to Old Trafford 11 years ago in the summer of 2006. He has won five Premier League titles, one FA Cup, three League Cups, the Europa League, the Champions League and the Club World Cup.He is the only player remaining from Sir Alex Ferguson’s side that won Europe’s premier club competition in 2008, now that Rooney has returned to Merseyside.“It feels great and it is such a huge honour to captain such a great club,” he told MUTV.“It is my 12th year now and I came as a 25-year-old. I never thought I could be here for so long and achieve so much.“Now, to lead the boys and look after the young boys, to guide them in some ways, it is a nice thing and a real pleasure.“I came to this club as a footballer and I am now a huge fan. I have grown to love the club over the years and to be in this position is very special for me.”
DONEGAL manager Jim McGuinness says his side is ready for the challenge of Tyrone in Clones on Saturday week – insisting Mickey Harte’s men won’t catch Donegal on the hop.“Everyone knows what we are going in against with a team that has won three All-Irelands in 10 year and we have to prepare for that and get our gameplan and squad ready,” said Jim.“It’s one we’ll look forward to, we have worked hard to get into this position — we’re only 70 minutes from a final and we’re just happy to be there. If Tyrone beat us it’s not because they will catch us on the hop. We know what lies ahead — they are one of the top teams in the country. “Mickey is starting to build a new team but has a lot of the old guard there as well, who played extremely well the last day and probably made the difference. It’s for us to prepare as best we can.”Retaining their Ulster title will be tough, he admitted, but Donegal’s win over Derry and new offensive challenge alongside our defensive capabilities are making last year’s critical pundits sit up and take notice.But the challenge of back-to-back titles is willing on his players.Said Jim: “It’s important because Ulster titles are extremely difficult to win. We haven’t won many and our players respect the competition hugely. To add another medal would be an unbelievable achievement and there’s a bigger picture outside that — but the Ulster Championship will always be very special. “That’s true for the players too because they stood in dressing rooms three or four times, beaten in Ulster finals and carrying that around with them for years.“We have to look it in the eye and see what can we do to get another victory and get to the final. If we could manage that, it would be a fantastic achievement.”Donegal v Tyrone is at Clones on Saturday week. Throw-in 4.30pm.
