House-to-House Registration

first_imgDear Editor,The concept of a new voters’ list is utter nonsense, since the existing list is still valid and is supposed to be kept up-to-date by GECOM.Who authorised the H2H Registration? Was it James Patterson, who was pronounced by the CCJ to be illegally appointed by David Granger?Yet, after he was forced to resign, his illegal order was still carried out by someone whose excuse was that he was following James Patterson’s orders.Anyway, the H2H Registration commenced, and should have been stopped immediately by the new GECOM Chairperson after her appointment. She has all authority to do so. I am sure that, like every Guyanese citizen, Madam Chairperson is keeping abreast with the critical political situation, and there was no need for her to be advised on the way forward after her appointment, as was stated in the media.The H2H Registration ended on Saturday, August 31, 2019. There are still thousands of persons who have not been registered. Why was there so much speed to allow the illegal registration to continue four days after it was called off?This whole H2H Registration is a waste of precious time and money. The big question is: How can they add to the existing list an incomplete list that is one-sided and unverified? Educated people have become dunces. There will be mass confusion, deliberate omissions, and illegal entries to suit purposes. They can never emerge with a credible and authentic list. The whole world is watching at this foolishness.Sincerely,Kenneth Seepaullast_img read more

Monaco coach Thierry Henry suspended

first_imgHenry, 41, was suspended by Monaco, who are second-from-bottom in the French league with 15 points, after the former Arsenal and France striker earned the Principality club just two wins since his arrival in October.He took up the post with the 2017 French champions in October following the sacking of title-winner Leonardo Jardim but failed to improve on the poor start to the campaign by his predecessor.Monaco are two points behind Dijon, who are 17th and a further point from safety, after collecting only three wins from 21 matches, and crashed out of Europe early after finishing bottom of Champions League Group A with just a single point.Their miserable form under Henry culminated in a humiliating 3-1 French Cup defeat to second-tier Metz on Tuesday and a 5-1 home Ligue 1 hammering by Strasbourg last weekend, during which the tension surrounding Henry began to show.Henry was forced to apologise after being caught calling Strasbourg defender Kenny Lala’s grandmother “a whore” after he delayed a throw-in with the score still 2-1.Monaco have brought in players in the transfer window but Henry’s former Arsenal teammate Cesc Fabregas — who arrived from Chelsea — was at fault for Strasbourg’s third, while fellow new arrival Naldo left them with an uphill battle after being sent off in the seventh minute.However escape from the relegation zone is possible as the two sides immediately outside the bottom three — Caen and Amiens — face Champions League-chasing Montpellier and Lyon and can be caught should the pair lose to their high-flying opponents and Monaco beat Dijon.0Shares0000(Visited 3 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Thierry Henry suspended as Monaco coachMONACO, Principality of Monaco, Jan 24 – Thierry Henry has been suspended from his role as coach of struggling Ligue 1 side Monaco as they prepare for a key relegation clash this weekend, the club announced on Thursday.“Henry has been suspended until a definitive decision is made,” the club said in a statement, adding assistant coach Franck Passi would oversee training on Friday ahead of their trip to fellow strugglers Dijon.last_img read more
