EC's directive for making vote counting more efficient

Nepal News - Mer, 18/05/2022 - 6:30am

The Election Commission has directed the bodies concerned to carry out the vote counting task within maximum five days of its commencement.

It has also urged the stakeholders concerned to refrain from aggravating the dispute by turning minor issues as a major issue; such as creating problem demanding for a recount of votes at the time when the final results of the vote count is about to be announced and from seeking to have a recount of votes in case of narrow margin of votes between candidates just when the counting is over and the results are to be announced, as these sorts of activities create obstructions in counting of votes in the stipulated time.

Issuing a press release today, EC's spokesperson and joint secretary Shaligram Sharma Poudel stated that in the context of the overall responsibility of conducting, overseeing, controlling and directing the elections at various levels lying with the Election Commission as per the Constitution, with no confusion on this matter, the Commission's serious attention has been drawn towards news carried by some media with the wrong intention.

"The Election Commission urges one and all not to disseminate news likely to create confusion regarding the election system and process. The Commission sincerely requests all not to disseminate or make others disseminate news that may creat distrust towards the Commission and the election process itself by making comments giving the opposite notion to the steps taken for completing the designated responsibilities on time," the press release reads.

The Election Commission has likewise appealed to the political parties, the election candidates, their representatives and the employees at various vote counting centres to internalize in a realistic manner everybody's wish that the vote counting is concluded on the designated time as far as possible and have it done in an expeditious manner in keeping with this common aspiration.

Economic plan lacking vision

Trinidad and Tobago Newsday - Mer, 18/05/2022 - 6:28am

GOVERNMENT MPs in Parliament on Monday voted to give Finance Minister Colm Imbert unlimited speaking time for his mid-year budget review.

But in the end, though Mr Imbert’s time was not limited, his vision for the economy, as implied by the evidence of his presentation, was.

It was a presentation lacking in depth. Instead of outlining a strong strategy to wean the economy off the petrochemical sector, it relished our reliance on volatile oil and gas prices. Instead of setting clear benchmarks for the way forward, it offered the piecemeal and the short-term.

Mr Imbert may well be saving his firepower for his next budget. He may not have had enough time since the outbreak of war in Ukraine to refine bigger goals. He may also have factored in the need to be conservative; to not rock the boat. “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it,” he may have thought, observing how the current status quo has seen a projected $9 billion deficit turned into a near-$2 billion surplus through price fluctuations alone.

Such reasoning, however, does not mesh well with the profoundly disturbing uncertainties being faced in relation to the global political order, security, the climate crisis and pandemic response.

It is also out of touch with the changes being endured by ordinary citizens and businesses on the ground.

The Central Bank’s last monetary policy announcement noted food inflation was at 6.6 per cent. That will be driven up in coming months.

At the same time, the fuel subsidy grows smaller by the minute.

During Monday’s sitting, Mr Imbert also confirmed property tax is coming before the end of the year for residential property owners.

There was also very little to provide reassurance in terms of the need to widen the social safety net, though the minister said some of the windfall revenue will be used to cover social welfare payments.

Meanwhile, a series of “goodies” contained in the presentation veered perilously close to giving people merely what they already deserve. Such could be said of the plans to pay VAT refunds to businesses, deal with arrears owed to utility bodies, pay contractors and renegotiate public-service salaries.

Even the very laudable measure of saving more by making a deposit into the Heritage and Stabilisation Fund is potentially subject to the interaction between revenue estimates and actual figures.

It would have been good to hear more about agriculture given food-price inflation, as well as our clear vulnerabilities when it comes to food sustainability. Sadly, and yet again, green energy took a back seat to black gold.

In the end, Mr Imbert clearly felt less was more. But this was one occasion when that was not the case.

Ending child violations

Trinidad and Tobago Newsday - Mer, 18/05/2022 - 6:28am

DR GABRIELLE JAMELA HOSEIN

HEADLINES today, from violent crime to school violence to lethal violence against women, often result from trauma stemming from abuse of children.

There are other economic and social factors harming family and community resilience, but we can see this in the thousands of reports made to the Children’s Authority, police and NGOs each year, and in the recent “Safeguarding Children in Community Residences and Child Support Centres in Trinidad and Tobago” report, which focuses on institutionalised children and youth.

Child abuse, including sexual abuse, is widespread, tolerated and silenced. In that context, we must ask ourselves what preventative approach will stop this from continuing.

Following the recent report, and with the government under heat to show real action, the 25-year-old Robert Sabga-led report conveniently resurfaced, enabling the Prime Minister to return to the attack mode with which he is most comfortable.

Both reports are damning, not just of office holders and judicial officers, but of the individuals and institutions meant to protect children, and particularly of religious organisations. The same cover-up that happens in families is endemic in both church and state.

I thought the PM’s May 16 press release was opportunistic, because he is capable of being silent when the nation calls for answers and apologies. As Prime Minister, he may have established the “Ministry of Gender and Child Affairs” (which is not a ministry, but was reduced to a division within the OPM), but it is a small unit with less status, autonomy and permanent staffing than it needs (and than it had), given its centrality to issues of rights, gender equity, and gender-based and sexual violence.

We should be sceptical when institutions and initiatives are established, but are perennially under-resourced and understaffed. We should also all be aware that the Children’s Authority, to quote its former chairman, put forward the same recommendations to address “sexual and physical abuse in child-support centres” and that these were “suggested and rejected”.

In his words, published in the Newsday of May 3, "we were turned down and told there was no funding and all these different kinds of things.” Unless he wanted to also account for his administration’s failures to protect children, the PM should have avoided politicising this issue.

Key is what will now create transformation, rehabilitation and justice. We await the task force’s implementation plan and deadlines. This is not just about handing matters over to the police. It requires real recognition that children’s needs for safety, love, care and trauma healing are not being met (and have not been over decades), and the state system for oversight and response is poorly managed and resourced, and operates without accountability or consequences. What then must be put in place?

In its press release, the Institute for Gender and Development Studies (IGDS), UWI, pointed to the need for psycho-support services to be offered to present and past residents, a children's commissioner to hold the State accountable for a co-ordinated and effective approach to children’s rights, “revitalisation of the social sector and social support systems”, “a strengthened student support system”, and “reintroduction of community social work, family social work and child social work programmes and strong parent support programmes, including gender-informed parenting education programmes”.

Ending violations of children, including those institutionalised and incarcerated, requires sustained, painstaking watchdog attention when press and public have moved on.

Similarly, the Coalition Against Domestic Violence called for a “strategic framework that will provide alternatives to placing children in institutional care. This means supporting families and parents to care for their children through parenting education before and after becoming a parent, psycho-social support, social care, adequate housing and social protection.”

Their release called for training and certification, “systems of auditing and monitoring which include the feedback of children”, “evidence-based, gender sensitive and personalised psychological interventions for girls and boys” and “pathways of accountability for childcare institutions.” It also called for the decriminalisation of same-sex relations among minors, so far refused by all governments, including this one.

Beyond state, however, is the unforgivable culpability of our country’s religious hierarchy. This week, Sharon Rowley and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) were advocating for teaching gender-based violence awareness from primary school. Yet, religious groups, including those managing children’s homes, have been resisting comprehensive gender, sexuality and GBV-sensitive education for children, lobbying ministers to block what vulnerable children most need. This is a 25-year pattern of dismissing children’s rights, with impunity.

Abuse of children won’t be fixed overnight and is at risk of barely being fixed at all. Point fingers at those guilty, but note that we all have present-day responsibility.

Education Minister: Stakeholders to get report on school violence this week

Trinidad and Tobago Newsday - Mer, 18/05/2022 - 6:28am

The Education Minister has said the inter-ministerial committee set up to address school violence is finalising a report to give to stakeholders this week. Dr Nyan Gadsby-Dolly added that government officials expect to meet with the stakeholders in two weeks. "They can have their input, so we can have a final programme to send to the Cabinet," the minister said. She spoke to reporters at the St Brigid's Girls' RC School in Siparia during a school tour in south Trinidad on Tuesday. "That would really solidify the involvement of other ministries so that we have a proper system. No matter which government or minister is in, this would be the system of dealing with school violence." The minister said the policy on the reduction of school violence includes positive behaviour management and encouragement – a framework for bringing people to talk to children and with dealing with school suspension. She said it is crucial to understand how the students are supervised. The ministry wants to move away from "just suspending" students with deviant behaviours. "We want to ensure that they get the type of attention and support. When children behave in this way, we often hear the backstory, and it really a lack of support in the home." She thanked the police for their efforts in school violence, saying there has been a reduction in school violence. She was unable to give statistics, but emphasised that the police have been very helpful and co-operative. "That's because the police have been active in the schools as we have asked them to. They have been patrolling in and outside schools and in populated areas, "Gadsby-Dolly said. "That is not to say that they will not be a couple of instances popping up." Asked to comment on a viral video on social media involving a man hitting a boy in a school uniform, she responded she did not know where it happened. "What I saw was a short clip of an adult hitting a child. "The matter was referred to the police. It did not happen in a school, so it's a matter for the police to investigate." A report from the ministry in March on existing systems to reduce indiscipline and violence in schools said schools are considered microcosms of society. The report identified 16 schools as high-risk. Many form one students there scored under 30 per cent in the Secondary Entrance Assessment examination. The report said the schools had high levels of indiscipline, high absenteeism and low levels of CSEC achievement. At least seven of the 16 schools exhibited all these characteristics.
