US Calls for Electoral Reform in Guyana

first_img(Loop) Guyana’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations in Geneva, John Deep Ford The United States has recommended that Guyana strengthens its electoral procedures to ensure the March 2 Regional and General Elections are free and fair. Share Share Sharing is caring! The recommendation came from US Representative Sean Mariano Garcia during Guyana’s human rights review at the 35th Session of Universal Periodic Review at the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland.“The United States is concerned about recent actions by Guyana that may undermine democratic principles, including apparent misapplication of the Guyanese constitution, and certain court rulings,” Mariano Garcia stated.Guyanese President David Granger has been repeatedly criticized by US, UK and European Union officials after he failed to call elections following the passage of a no-confidence motion against him on December 21, 2018.Elections were constitutionally due, three months after Parliament was dissolved but the Government challenged the motion in the courts claiming that the 33 votes the opposition received in the 65 member National Assembly did not constitute a majority.In response, Guyana’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations in Geneva, said: “The Elections Commission of Guyana is a constitutional body and is independent from the state and committed to delivering as indicated free, fair, transparent and credible elections on March 2, 2020.”President of Guyana, David Grangercenter_img NewsPoliticsRegional US Calls for Electoral Reform in Guyana by: – January 30, 2020 Share 71 Views   no discussions Tweetlast_img read more

Man United and Chelsea ‘have asked’ for Barcelona player: €65m summer…

first_imgOn the front page of today’s edition of Sport, it reads ‘Stop Rakitic’ as the future of the 30-year-old is in the air.It’s because the former Sevilla man is demanding a new and an improved contract, but the La Liga winners have no plans to offer a new deal.PSG were interested in signing him last summer, but Valverde convinced him to stay at the club. He then asked for a better deal, which was not entertained by the Blaugrana.The Spanish champions’ stance has still not changed as they have no plans to offer him better wages, which is why the scenario could be tense in the coming weeks.Rakitic has put pressure on president Josep Maria Bartomeu to offer him a new deal as he continues to draw attention from several clubs and this includes the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea, Juventus, Bayern Munich and Inter Milan.It is explained Manchester United and Chelsea, as well as the other clubs, ‘have asked’ for the player, knowing that he could be available in the summer. If Barca don’t offer a better deal, Rakitic could ‘consider listening to offers’ as he will have more options to leave after this season.Having already agreed a deal with Ajax for Frenkie de Jong, Sport claims Rakitic’s exit would not be traumatic for Barcelona and they could raise around funds by allowing him to leave. They value him around €65m.The next few weeks will be crucial for Rakitic to decide if he has to stay with his current employer beyond this season or not.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameDon’t Play This Game, it’s Addictive.Forge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoDating.comWhere do attractive singles meet in Tung Chung?Dating.comUndoPerfect-Dating.comReveal Tung Chung As The Best City to Date for Love & RomancePerfect-Dating.comUndoKeto减肥1個簡單的妙招一夜「融化」腹部贅肉(今晚試試)Keto减肥UndoStanChart by CNBC CatalystWill Blockchain Reduce the Global Trade Finance Gap to Reach the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals?StanChart by CNBC CatalystUndo熱門話題小心會長過頭…網友推爆:「真的長得超誇張!」熱門話題UndoSingles50Hong Kong: A 40+ Dating Site That Actually Works!Singles50UndoCoworking Space | Search AdsThe cost of shared office in Hong Kong might surprise youCoworking Space | Search AdsUndo Ivan Rakitic is one of the key players for Ernesto Valverde at Barcelona.last_img read more

From pawn shop to art house, Colfax icon gets creative with…

first_imgThe studios will range in size from 100 square feet to as big as 500 square feet, depending on artist preferences, according to Pasternack. The entire building is about 2,500 square feet in total.Pasternack said he plans to lease the pods to interested artists throughout the beginning of January, with people moving into the studios sometime later this month. He plans to christen a roughly 800-square-foot gallery space in the front of the new studios with an opening exhibition event tentatively scheduled for Feb. 1.“We used the building for all these years as storage for the pawn shop, but now we don’t need all the storage space and that’s why we deiced to do the art space,” Pasternack said. “It’s a minimal investment because you don’t have to do everything you need for a restaurant or something like that. For artists, you need a cement floor, white walls and maybe some teaching space.”He said he’s budgeted 100 to 200 square feet of teaching space inside the new artistic venue. Other upgrades included new paint and updated bathroom facilities.Pasternack said the goal is to lure more studios, artists and pedestrians to an arts district that sometimes goes overlooked in the metro-area arts scene.“We’ve been designated the arts district for … probably 10 years … but nothing has really changed down here,” he said. “The galleries are a lot of what people actually come down to see. So that’s kind of the key.”To bolster the success of his new artistic venture, Pasternack has worked with Tracy Weil, managing director of the ACAD, to find potential artists who could inhabit the studios.Weil said he’s spoken with about 15 artists who have expressed interest in hopping into one of Pasternack’s studios. The pawn shop dealer said he plans to charge between $1.50 and $2 per square foot for rent.“Scott’s been a stakeholder in this community for several years and it’s just amazing to me to see folks like that come to the forefront and help because that’s what it takes to make an arts district thrive — a good cross-pollination of local businesses, creatives and artists,” Weil said. “They all kind of work together to create a sense of place.”Pasternack’s new venue could increase studio space in the arts district by about 30 percent, filling a niche that has dwindled following the sale of longtime Aurora studio space Sunrise Artworks on Florence Street. Former Sunrise owner Walt Weinberg sold his creative space last year and has since moved to a new workspace behind Jubilee Roasting Company on Kenton Street. The only other official studios are located in the city-run ACAD gallery at 1400 Dallas Street. Those 11 spaces have long been fully occupied, though Weil said there could be some turnover at the facility throughout January.Local real estate agent Jeff Coutts with Cornerstone Realty Colorado, said he also may start renting out  as many as seven studios on the upper level of 1457 Florence Street this year. He said those spaces range from 300 square feet to 350 square feet and would run about $500 per month, including internet access.This year could also signal a move forward for the ACAD on a grander scale, as the city is expected to firm up a contract with an outside consultant to analyze the area’s viability as a live-work hub for local artists.“I’m hoping that study will dive into the cultural diversity that we have, with artists from different countries that we have around the district, as well as the actors and the theater folks that are in the neighborhood working at the Fox and the Vintage,” Weil said. “I think those folks would qualify for artist housing as well, and I think that could be a great niche.” Scott Pasternack, owner of Pasternack’s Pawn Shop and other properties along East Colfax, poses Dec. 30 in an empty storefront that was formerly storage for his pawn shop.
