House approves $6B for Presidency’s spending in 2017

House approves $6B for Presidency’s spending in 2017

first_img− 0M increase for contract employeesThe National Assembly resumed its sittings on Monday to consider the estimates in the proposed 2017 Budget and approved unchanged in excess of $6 billion for the Ministry of the Presidency.Minister of State, Joseph HarmonThe departments considered and had their spending approved included the Ministry of the Presidency’s Policy Development and Administration, Defence and National Security, Public Service Management, Citizenship and Immigration Services, Social Cohesion and Environmental Management and Compliance.The political Opposition used the opportunity to grill Minister of State, Joseph Harmon, who provided information with regard to the departments in the Ministry with the assistance of Ministers Winston Felix and Amna Ally.The House heard, among other things, that the Ministry of the Presidency will in 2017 be looking to its fleet of 142 vehicles, four new cars and a Land Cruiser meant to be used for visiting Heads of State and similar dignitaries.The Minister was at the time responding to questions posed by members of the political Opposition.The House heard that the vehicles would be kept mothballed when not in use.Another of the provisions that attracted a lively exchange between Government and Opposition members was an almost $200 million allocation for the General Register’s Office under the remit of Minister of Citizenship, Winston Felix.The House heard a total of $194 million was allocated to the Department of Citizenship and Immigration Services in 2016 and the Budget documents showed that $191 million was spent in 2016, with another $194 million budgeted for 2017.Felix was at this time grilled by Opposition parliamentarians Joseph Hamilton, Juan Edghill and Irfaan Ali.He admitted that of the $194 million allocated to his Department in 2016, only $3 million was spent.Felix noted that the monies were spent on the computerisation of records (1987-1997) at the General Register’s Office (GRO). He stated that the computerisation of records, from 1886 to 1986, has not been completed.On the question of what happened to the $191 million left, Felix first told the House that his Ministry was “mobilising from within” to have the monies spent.He then stressed that the $191 million has not been spent and has been rolled over to 2017. At this point, Hamilton charged that the budget documents showed that the $191 million was spent.The members of the National Assembly heard too that the Commissioner of Information, Charles Ramson Sr and his office would no longer be administered by the Ministry of the Presidency, since this responsibility has been turned over to the Office of the Prime Minister.Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo was later grilled by Opposition Member Edghill over this Office.The House was told that Information Commissioner Ramson was in fact employed, attracting a $36 million package, inclusive of a $1.7 million monthly salary.Nagamootoo said the Commissioner of Information has been written to since he has given no report of his work for the past couple years of this appointment.Nagamootoo told the House the Commissioner also has no staff and no office.As has become ritualistic during the considerations of the annual estimates, Minister Harmon was also grilled over several provisions for the payment of contract employees at the Ministry of the Presidency.Harmon indicated to the House that the adjustments in the staffing construct included secondment and restructuring warranting an increase of $100 million for salaries to be paid.Prime Minister Nagamootoo was also grilled on contract employees under the Prime Minister’s Secretariat since all employees were on contract.The Prime Minister said this was an inherited situation and it was not the intention of the Office to depend solely on contract employees. He did seek to point out that there were areas and specialities that would warrant persons being employed on contract.The Prime Minister was grilled specifically on the employment of Director of Public Information Imran Khan and the House was told his salary topped $550,000 per month in addition to entertainment and other allowances.Nagamootoo was also grilled over the allocations to the Government Information Agency (GINA) given that while in Opposition he was a party to cutting allocations to that unit down to $1.The Prime Minister told the House that GINA was no longer doing partisan political propaganda and was in fact now providing a useful service to the Guyanese people hence justifying allocations for 2017.Meanwhile, as it relates to the National Communications Network (NCN) – slated to receive a $134 million subvention in 2017 –Nagamootoo informed the House that NCN was in fact projected to run a deficit by the end of the year.According to Nagamootoo, the total expenditure is expected to reach $443 million by the end of the year.He said the deficit projected was in part a result of bad business practices inherited where services were rendered to clients that never paid.A total of $882 million was approved for the Prime Minister’s Office for 2017. (Gary Eleazar)last_img read more

Tamim, Shakib, Mortaza help Bangladesh draw 1st blood at Providence

Tamim, Shakib, Mortaza help Bangladesh draw 1st blood at Providence

first_imgWest Indies v Bangladesh 1st ODI at Providence…By Clifton RossOpener Tamim Iqbal punched his 10th One-Day International (ODI) century while Shakib Al Hasan narrowly missed out on his own as Bangladesh crushed the Windies by 48 runs in Sunday’s opening match at the Providence National Stadium, Guyana.After losing the Test series 2-0, the Tigers resumed their winning ways in a format which is more tailored to their style of cricket, as they outplayed the Caribbean side in the first of three ODIs in the series.It was a mixture of grit and aggression as Iqbal ended on 130 off 160 balls with 10 fours and three sixes. He shared a resurgent and revitalising second-wicket stand of 207 with Shakib Al Hasan, who hit six fours in his 97 to take the Tigers to 279-4Shakib Al Hasanin 50 overs.It was hard work for the Windies bowlers as the misfielded and dropped catches added to the bowlers’ turmoil. Spinner Devendra Bishoo ended with 2-52 in a brave effort. The Caribbean side who looked spot on in the Tests, were unable to channel the same fire the Tigers did in their innings and were kept to 231-9 in 50 overs.Skipper Mashrafe Mortaza was the pick of the bowlers, returning to the team in a match-winning way.Guyanese Shimron Hetmyer resisted with a top-score of 52, followed by Chris Gayle with 40, and 29 apiece from the unbeaten tail-end stars Bishoo and Alzarri Joseph as their 50-partnership ended prematurely. Bangladesh’s star pacer Mustafizur Rahman returned to action with 2-27.Windies’ chase got underway with some feisty shots from Evin Lewis (17), who looked dangerous but played a soft shot and was easily caught by Mahmudullah to give the Bangladesh skipper his first wicket.A circumspect-looking Gayle was then joined by Shai Hope, who also appeared a bit watchful, but the “Universe Boss” would soon get into the action when he thumped off-spinner Mehedy Hasan Miraz for his first six. Mosaddek Hossain would then manage another breakthrough when he trapped Hope LBW for just six runs.Homeboy Hetmyer joined Gayle with the score at 41-2 and the left-hander quickly secured his first boundary thanks to a classy pull through mid-wicket off Hossain which also took Windies well past 50 in the 15th over. Gayle’s and Hetmyer’s partnership ended with a mix-up as the former was run out thanks to some clinical work between Mahmudullah and Mosaddek Hossain.Jason Mohammed had a brief stay at the crease, departing stumped for 10 by Mushfiqur Rahim off the bowling of Mehedy. Unfazed by the previous dismissals, the Berbician Hetmyer pleased his Guyanese crowd when he raised his bat to acknowledge a solid fifty under pressure.His demise came at the hands of Sabbir Rahman, who was operating with such precision that he went on a hat-trick after he followed up his first wicket with that of Rovman Powell, who edged a moving delivery into the gloves of wicket-keeper Rahman.The wheels began to fall off the Caribbean wagon as Holder who smashed a six off his opposite number Mortaza, was then removed the following ball by the Bangladeshi skipper for 17. After hitting a six and four and looking ominous, Andre Russell (13) became Mortaza’s third victim.The Windies innings eventually came to a screeching halt when Mortaza removed Nurse for seven, but Bishoo and Joseph counterpunched with a last-wicket partnership of 59 not out, the best for their team, but in vain.Bangladesh’s batting redemptionBatting first on an overcast morning, Bangladesh opener Anamul Haque perished to Holder for a three-ball duck, holding out to Ashley Nurse as the weather quickly changed, stopping play briefly before covers were back off. After resumption of play, things were steady for the tourists with the senior pair of Iqbal and Shakib at the crease. The first boundary of the Tigers innings came compliments of Iqbal, who crunched Russell through the covers.Joseph managed to spark the hopes of another dismissal as Iqbal was put down in the covers during the 11 over, spurring a series of missed opportunities with Tamim surviving back-to-back drops. The first off Nurse went past both the wicket-keeper and slipsman Gayle, then Gayle had one pop out of his clutches off the bowling of Joseph.The two senior players shook off the near misses and raised Bangladesh’s as well as their own 50 in the 14th over. The duo settled in nicely and kept their running between the wickets on point, as they kept the occasional boundaries coming. A smashing drive back over Nurse’s head saw the Bangladeshis register their first maximum, courtesy of Ibqal, who was just a few shy of fifty.After a nightmare start and multiple dropped catches, the visitors put on a 100 with the pair also reaching their century partnership. Not long after, Iqbal reached another ODI half-century while his partner Shakib followed soon after as he reached his career 16th fifty with a four off Bishoo.Boundaries continued to flow from both ends with the Caribbean side’s bowlers having to tussle and toil during their spells. Shakib looked on course to a ton, but played an uncultured shot that was swallowed by Hetmyer, just three short of a hundred.The flurry of boundaries increased after Iqbal reached his hundred, the Windies bowlers haemorrhaged a number of boundaries as Iqbal and Rahim found the ropes and beyond.Rahim hammered Holder for two fours and a six before Russell disappeared a few times the following over courtesy of Iqbal. Rahim’s onslaught of 30 off 10 ended after he attempted a reverse paddle, but picked out a diving Bishoo, as Mahmudullah pulled the last ball for four to end their innings.The second of two ODIs will bowl off at Providence on Wednesday, July 25 from 14:30h.last_img read more

Pochettino calls for FA over fixture schedule

Pochettino calls for FA over fixture schedule

first_img0Shares0000Tottenham Hotspur coach Mauricio Pochettino has called on his side to ‘finish the job’ in their last 16, second leg clash at Borussia Dortmund after winning the first leg 3-0 at Wembley.© dpa/AFP Bernd ThissenDORTMUND. Germany, Mar 5 – Mauricio Pochettino has appealed to the FA and Premier League to help English clubs in the Champions League after complaining about Tottenham Hotspur’s limited recuperation time before facing Borussia Dortmund.Spurs play Dortmund away in Germany on Tuesday in their last 16, return leg after thumping the Germans 3-0 in the first leg at Wembley. However, Pochettino, 47, is far from happy with having a day less to prepare for the last 16 tie at Dortmund’s Signal Iduna Park.Spurs had a bruising 1-1 draw at home to Arsenal in Saturday’s North London derby, while Dortmund lost 2-1 at Augsburg on Friday night in the Bundesliga.“They played Friday, we played Saturday,” said Spurs coach Pochettino.“It’s not fair to play with a massive disadvantage.“We need help from the FA and the Premier League – for us it’s impossible.“We played (a Premier League game) on a Sunday before the first leg, which was on a Wednesday, when Dortmund played Saturday.“Now we played Saturday, Dortmund played Friday.“I don’t know if the FA or the Premier League are to blame or television, who wanted us to play live Saturday or Sunday.”Pochettino pointed to the example of Stade Rennes, who postponed a French league game at the weekend to prepare for Thursday’s Europa League, last 16 tie at home to Arsenal.“Looked what happened to Rennes, they had a game cancelled the weekend game to held prepare to play Arsenal,” said Pochettino.“In Europe, the people are more sensitive to helping their clubs prepare for Europe, that’s my point.“I want us to have the same amount preparation time as our opponents.“We need to change it in the future to help English clubs be stronger in the competition.”Spurs last reached the Champions League’s quarter-finals in 2011 – losing 4-0 at Real Madrid and beaten 1-0 at home – and Pochettino knows this is a golden chance for Spurs.Harry Kane is expected to lead Spurs’ attack while Pochettino said Harry Winks and Eric Dier could feature after injuries.The Argentinian repeatedly said Spurs must ‘forget’ their heavy first-leg win at Wembley and finish the job by seeing off a Dortmund team who have one win in seven games.Son Heung-min and Kane scored at Dortmund when Spurs won 2-1 in the group stages in 2017/18 and Pochettino wants another convincing away win.“It’s a great opportunity to go to the next round, but we need a good performance – it’s going to difficult,” said Pochettino.“The 3-0 at Wembley is not important.“We need to forget the first leg, be very professional and win the game.“We need to start at a very good level, be aggressive, fight from the beginning, high tempo.“We know Dortmund are a good team, they deserve to be there and they are going to start aggressive and try to push us deeper – we need to be just as aggressive.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_imgSome cars had flat tires from driving over glass in the street. Numerous businesses had their windows blown out and glass was all over the street. None of the traffic lights were working. It was like a mini-obstacle course driving around the glass. I made it home and found my family and house safe. The only damage I had was a crack in the living room wall. It was in a good spot, behind a curtain, so I was able to keep my souvenir of my earthquake experience for several years. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! The thing I found strange was he was smiling and laughing while still walking. The shaking became more intense and the man on the sidewalk fell into the street. It was a good thing that he fell when he did, because at that point, the windows of the building he was nextx to exploded, sending glass into the street. The man was OK. I looked westbound on Whittier Boulevard and actually saw the street twisting back and forth. After several seconds, the shaking stopped. I made a U-turn and drove home. The drive was not easy. There were not many cars on the street at that time of the morning. The ones that were, the drivers seemed to be in a state of shock. Many of the vehicles were still stopped in the middle of the street or had pulled over to the curb. I was traveling westbound on Whittier Boulevard and was stopped for the red light at Painter Avenue. The light changed to green and I began to drive through the intersection. At that point, I felt the rear end of my car begin moving sharply back and forth. I thought the lugnuts had been removed and the tires were going to come off. I started to pull over to the right when I looked to my left and saw a man walking on the sidewalk on the south side of Whittier Boulevard. He was staggering and was attempting to keep his balance by putting both of his arms out to his side. last_img read more

Fabregas still has a role to play for Chelsea, former Blues star tells talkSPORT

Fabregas still has a role to play for Chelsea, former Blues star tells talkSPORT

first_imgCesc Fabregas can still be a key man for Chelsea this season, according to Frank Sinclair.Fabregas was left on the bench for new manager Antonio Conte’s first Premier League match in charge of the Blues, against West Ham, on Monday night.The omission has fuelled speculation the former Arsenal captain could be on his way out of Stamford Bridge.But Sinclair believes the 29-year-old still has plenty to offer the club and expects him to be an integral part of Conte’s squad.The ex-Chelsea defender, who made 218 appearances in his eight-year spell at the club, told talkSPORT: “He didn’t play yesterday but it doesn’t mean he doesn’t have a future at the club.“There will be certain games you will need his quality and Chelsea certainly have the strength in depth to make changes in the team.”Chelsea began the Conte era with a 2-1 victory over the Hammers, thanks to a late strike from Diego Costa.And, after the disappointment of last season’s tenth-placed finish, Sinclair believes the Blues are well set to challenge for the title again.“You’d say that the battle is going to be between the two Manchester clubs, Liverpool and Chelsea,” he said,“There is a lot of teams that will fancy themselves this season after what Leicester did last season.“But If Chelsea can reproduce the former of a couple of seasons ago when they were champions then they will certainly be up there.”last_img read more

DONEGAL LEAGUE: ALL YOUR REPORTS AND RESULTS

DONEGAL LEAGUE: ALL YOUR REPORTS AND RESULTS

first_imgDonegal Junior LeagueReports Downtown CupGroup ARamelton Mariners 0 Glencar Celtic 5Ramelton Mariner hosted Saturday League Champions Glencar in the Downtown Cup on Saturday. Glencar made a fast start and were a few goals up early on. Mariners never got going till the half hour mark when the Glencar keeper made a great save from a Damien Friel header. With the Mariners pushing to get back into the game Glencar scored two counter attacking goals, one being a contender for goal of the season. The 2nd half was a much tighter affair with both teams cancelling each other out. The game’s last goal came in the 70th minute to make it 5-0. Best for Glencar was Marty Brogan. Best for Ramelton was Pauric Mc Fadden. Glenree United Reserves 1 Mulroy Celtic 3Group BKeadue Rovers Reserves 2 Strand Rovers 2Keadue and Strand played out a competitive local derby at Central Park on Saturday with honours even in the end. It was a challenging day for football with a strong cold breeze throughout. The first chance of the game came on ten minutes when Brendan Brennan shot over from the edge of the box. Brendan Glackin hit a superb effort for Strand on twenty four minutes but his long range shot hit the crossbar. Keadue came more into the game by the midway point of the half. Keadue took the lead on the half hour when, following a free kick, Chris Greene flicked a header across goal and Jack O’Brien poked home from close range. Five minutes later Conor Greene was just wide with a header. On thirty nine minutes Strand were level when good work down the right hand side led to a chance for Mark Ward and he slotted low to the net. Three minutes from half time Strand should’ve been ahead when Mark Ward missed an open goal. Strand took the lead again on seventy three minutes. Following a free kick and a defensive mix up Strand’s Brendan Glackin popped up at the edge of the area and shot home to the corner of the net. At this stage the away side looked more comfortable, hitting Keadue on the break and should’ve settled it on eighty five minutes when sub Paddy Glackin was through on goal but Ben Boyle in the Keadue nets saved brilliantly. As time was running out Keadue were awarded a free kick on the edge of the area and Hugh Yank Boyle drilled a fine effort to the corner of the net to spark off great celebrations. The game ended 2-2 with Keadue keeping their place at the top of the table. Best for Strand were Brendan Glackin and Adrian McGeehan while best for Keadue were Jack O’Brien and Conor Greene. Referee: Marty Quinn.Group DDonegal Town Reserves 1 St. Catherines Reserves 3 St Catherine’s dominated this game from the start and played some excellent football in the first half. Brenden Mc Guire got the first goal of the game after 20 minutes. Paul McFadden broke down the left hand side of the park and cut the ball back nicely to McGuire who slotted home from 10 yards. Soon after St Catherine’s got their second of the game. Donegal’s keeper McGinley made a good save from a St Catherine’s effort and the Donegal defence didn’t react to the loose ball. St Catherine’s Brandon McGinley reacted quickest and made no mistake from close range. Catherine’s got their third on the stroke of half time. A lovely cross from Catherine’s full back Enda Murphy was unfortunately turned into the Donegal net by the head of one of their own defenders. 3-0 St Catherine’s at half time. Much of the same in the second half and Donegal struggled to deal with Catherine’s slick play. Donegal did manage a consolation goal though. A wonder free kick from young Daniel Mc Hugh which struck the inside of post in the top corner left the Catherine’s keeper no chance. 3-1 St Catherine’s at the final whistle.Oscar Traynor TrophySligo / Leitrim League 2 Donegal Junior League 2Kyle Black of Cranford United scored both Donegal goals as they came from behind twice to claim a draw from a game which they totally dominated. The Junior League side were unlucky not to progress to the knockout stages of this year’s competition. Watson Hire Division OneCurragh Athletic 3 Whitestrand United 1Played in wintery conditions, Curragh were well worth all three points in this Division One match at the New Camp Sports Complex. The home side dominated the first fifteen minutes with player manager Neil Lloyd putting them one up after only five minutes from a Calvin Bradley assist. However Paul Lynch’s team came more into it and began to find their way for the next quarter, almost grabbing an equaliser when a free kick came back off the crossbar with stand in keeper Michael O’ Brien well beaten. It was the home side who regained the upper hand and scored again on thirty nine minutes when Justin Mc Bride’s long pass found Dan O Brien who passed to Colm Melaugh and he finished brilliantly in off a post to the back of the net. The second half was a similar affair with Curragh again on top but they were caught out on sixty six minutes when Ryan Mc Creery managed to force the ball home from close range. With four minutes remaining Curragh regained their two goal advantage with Dan O’ Brien again providing the assist for Colm Melaugh to head home his second of the match and ensure all three points went to Curragh. Whitestand produced a good team effort with player manager Paul Lynch always dangerous in attack. Curragh were also well served by player manager Neil Lloyd, Gerry Melaugh, Liam Mc Gill, Troy Mc Cormick and Dan O’ Brien. Referee: Patrick Martin.Castlefin Celtic 3 Keadue Rovers 1Castlefin kept up their 100% start to the season with a win at home against Keadue.Castlefin started the better with a quick goal from JP Malley after 8 minutes. Keadue’s defence failed to clear a cross from Barry Tourish and Malley tapped home from 6 yards.Castlefin doubled their lead on 10 minutes, Damien Mc Anenny’s cross found Ronan Tourish who beat the keeper to finished low into the bottom corner. Keadue began to settle more into the game and forced Castlefin Keeper Anthony O’Hagan into two good saves. Ryan Greene with Keadues’ best chance saw his strike going slightly wide. The second half was more even with both teams creating chances. Keadue then pulled one back on 75 minutes after Adrian Hanlon beat the offside trap and chipped the keeper from the edge of the box. Keadue began to put pressure on the Castlefin defence as they went in search of an equaliser, Ryan Greene’s 20 yard strike going slightly over the bar. Five minutes from time Castlefin wrapped up the three points when Ian Ward squared the ball to Fergal McNulty who calmly finished at the back post. Referee: John Coll. Best for Castlefin: Team Performance. Best for Keadue: Team PerformanceCT Ball Division TwoRaphoe Town 1 Ballybofey United 1This match was switched to Ballybofey and was played on Saturday afternoon. Raphoe went ahead inside the opening five minutes when a cross was deflected past Chris Patton in the Ballybofey net by one of his own players. That blow stunned the hosts but was to be the only time Patton was beaten in the match. Ballybofey had the lion’s share of play with Raphoe dependent on the odd breakaway. Chris Patton did make two top class saves midway through the second half to keep his side in touch with their East Donegal neighbours but when Calvin Mc Gowan glanced home a header from Mark Griffin’s corner it was little more than what was deserved by the home team. They almost took the lead three minutes later when Damien Glackin’s cross just crept past the back post. An entertaining, fast game with Jamie Gallagher and Mark Bogle doing well for Raphoe and Chris Patton with Ronan Mc Menamin showing well for Ballybofey in a sporting encounter.
