PPP should embrace all opposition forces

first_imgDear Editor,In a recent letter, Mr. Sean Ori wisely advises PPP/C “to regroup and rethink its strategy” (of winning the next election) if it is going to improve its prospects of returning to office in 2020.So far, the PPP has not displayed a credible strategy to win the next election or to expand its political base. More of the same will not win an election.Bharrat Jagdeo wants to pursue a different strategy of embracing non-PPP forces, but he has been handicapped by hard core elements in the party who are reluctant to embrace change. As Jagdeo had suggested, the party needs to do something different, and to be creative in improving its chance at the polls — like teaming up with other opposition forces, as the PNC did in 2011 and 2015, which led to its capturing the Government.The PPP feels confident it would be victorious in 2020 because of the mis-governance of the APNU+AFC, which has resulted in widespread disgruntlement, even among its own supporters. But historically, disenchanted PNC supporters have never voted for the PPP, and there is no evidence they will do so in 2020.Sean Ori is right in stating that PPP will not win the next general election if it is relying exclusively on the countless errors (bad governance) made by the ruling APNU+AFC coalition. The PPP feels disenchanted PNC supporters would gravitate towards them (PPP). It did not happen in the past, and there is no evidence it would happen in 2020.People don’t vote on governance issues, but on ethnicity. In 1992, after 28 years of bad governance, PNC supporters did not abandon their natural party. And, so far, the PNC (APNU) support remains strong, and there is no evidence that the party is losing its traditional support in spite of all the errors and allegations of widespread corruption.In a free and fair election, the PPP may emerge victorious. Those who crossed over from PPP to vote for AFC are returning home, because of what they describe as the betrayal of the AFC. But a free and fair election is not guaranteed. The PPP needs to put measures in place to attract figures against which it would be nearly impossible for rigging, as took place between 1966 and 1992. If the PPP embraces all opposition forces, it will win.The PPP does not have the numbers to guarantee a win in an election, even if it is free and fair.  But if it has the right, independent, credible personalities in its Civic component, it would win. The party needs to reform itself, and to make alliances with other groups and individuals of integrity. The party is not moving in that direction, in spite of good advice.Had the party taken advice offered it in 2011, it would have retained its majority. Had it taken advice in 2015, it would have won the election. As I found out from various sources, this party has rejected every good, sound advice to expand its support.Since May 2015, the PPP has not been able to attract new faces into the party, or make alliance with any group, although it has reached out to some credible individuals like Chris Ram, Lawrence Latchmansingh, Rhyaan Shah, Joe Singh, Ralph Ramkarran (who declined a nomination), etc. , all of whom were rejected by the APNU+AFC as Chair of GECOM. The PPP has to encourage these individuals and more to become part of its Civic component. It has to give the Civic autonomy to choose its own members and leadership, and to manage its own affairs, like an independent party or political organisation.The PPP cannot choose the leadership of the Civic, or decide who will be its members. The Civic must have complete freedom and independence to decide on these issues.  In this way, towering personalities like Ralph Ramkarran, Joe Singh, Lawrence Latchmansingh, Chris Ram, Rhyaan Shah, Ravi Dev, Gerry Gouveia, etc. can feel comfortable in becoming a member of the Civic without appearing as a member or supporter of the PPP. There is no doubt their presence in the Civic in an alliance would carry the PPP to victory. In fact, such an alliance would win a landslide victory, especially if led by one of these figures (particularly Ramkarran or Joe Singh or Gouveia) all of whom enjoy huge support across the political divide, and in whom people have a lot of confidence for the restoration of good governance and ethnic equality.But will the PPP heed good advice or wise counsel? The PPP must heed Ori’s advice and rethink its strategy for 2020: embrace all, including critics and detractors. The party needs to take bold steps and loosen the Civic component to its appellation and alliance, so that respected professionals and individuals of integrity would feel comfortable in joining the Civic.Yours faithfully,Vishnu Bisramlast_img read more

Real Madrid chief gets keys to Panama City

first_img0Shares0000Real Madrid president Florentino Perez received the key to Panama City from its mayor on Monday, in honor of the billionaire’s achievements in business and sport. “It is an honor for me to accept this, as well as a responsibility,” the head of the iconic Spanish football club said, after Mayor Jose Isabel Blandon bestowed the key.Perez did not rule out the possibility of a match between Real Madrid and the Panamanian national side, in Panama.“It is a matter of finding the dates because between world cups and European cups after national championships, there are no dates left.

Governor’s aides reap big rewards

first_imgIn a nod to the state’s fiscal health and his own fabulous wealth, Gov. Schwarzenegger declines his $206,500 salary. When it comes to the compensation of his aides, however, the governor is far less frugal. Since taking office more than three years ago, Schwarzenegger has broken with tradition by allowing top aides to moonlight on campaigns, collecting salaries from public and private interests simultaneously. He also has boosted the ranks of staffers earning $100,000 or more of taxpayer money. And the man who vowed to shake up politics as usual has continued the age-old practice of rewarding campaign aides, many of them in their 20s, with well-paid state jobs. A man who credits his Kennedy in-laws with nurturing his sense of public service, Schwarzenegger thinks compensating aides well is a way to “attract the best and the brightest,” said his press secretary, Aaron McLear. The governor’s staffers consider it “an honor to work for this governor and to serve the people of California.” But some political scientists and ethicists fret that the governor, accustomed to Hollywood pay scales, sends conflicting messages about public service. They’re concerned his actions may undermine long-held practices and traditions that have ennobled the calling: “Arnold as usual not only exemplifies, but also magnifies, whatever a trend is,” Cain said. “Coming from the glitziest and most over-rewarded part of the private sector, he’s obviously doing more of it” than his predecessors. The practice that has startled observers most is moonlighting by top administration aides. It’s legal, so long as campaign work is done during non-work hours, but generally frowned upon. State staffers typically take leaves of absence if they’re working extensively on campaigns. Former Gov. Gray Davis forbade his state aides from moonlighting. Last year, Schwarzenegger Chief of Staff Susan Kennedy earned more from campaign coffers filled with corporate contributions – $167,500 – than she received from her state salary of $131,412. (Because Kennedy went off the state payroll for about a month, she actually earned $121,506.) Schwarzenegger communications director Adam Mendelsohn received $87,666 for his efforts on the governor’s re-election and inaugural celebration, beyond his $123,252 state salary. Personal assistant Clay Russell earned $72,000 on campaign work, in addition to his $75,000 state salary. Senior Adviser Daniel Zingale received a $50,000 campaign bonus, aside from his $123,252 salary. “They worked long hours on their state jobs,” said spokesman McLear, speaking on behalf of the senior aides. “And on nights and weekends, they would go and work on the campaign.” The aides filed monthly time cards for the state. They weren’t required to tally hours worked on the campaign. That’s “very troubling” to Judy Nadler, a senior fellow at the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics at Santa Clara University. “The public doesn’t actually know when you’re on the meter and when you’re not.” The governor has defended the arrangement, saying that aides are not paid with campaign donations from outside sources, but rather from contributions made by Schwarzenegger to himself. McLear said “we don’t anticipate” paying staffers from campaign coffers again, but he did not categorically rule it out. On the state side, Schwarzenegger has also boosted salaries. In January 2005, 24 employees of the governor’s staff earned $100,000 or more, according to records kept by the controller’s office. A year later, 28 did. At the start of this year, 35 employees, or roughly one in five governor’s office employees, earned six figures. Another 21 aides made between $90,204 and $99,504. Schwarzenegger’s first chief of staff, Pat Clarey, was known as tight-fisted on salaries, especially since Schwarzenegger was elected to remedy a huge deficit. Current aides take a different tack. “What they’re trying to do is do more with less people,” said spokesman McLear, who says all salary adjustments are “budget-neutral.” That is, they’re offset by leaving some positions vacant. Schwarzenegger’s refusal of his own six-figure salary also frees up cash for others. “That allows us to pay the salaries we need to attract the best and brightest.” McLear also stresses that “many people on the governor’s staff could be making two or three times more” elsewhere. Governor’s office staffers are due to receive raises this year, too. It’s unclear how big they’ll be and who will get them. Given financial – and political – considerations, the raises are unlikely to be granted before a new state budget is adopted later this summer. By law, the chief of staff’s salary cannot exceed that of the highest paid cabinet secretary, currently $225,000. Everyone else could theoretically earn as much as directors of big state departments, or $169,500. Additionally, the governor has continued the longstanding practice of rewarding campaign aides with state jobs or granting them big raises when they return to state service. More than 20 former campaign staffers now work on the state payroll, including several twenty-somethings earning $70,000 or more. Former publicist Lisa Page was 26 when she got her first state job – deputy communications director – earning $85,000. Page served the governor’s campaign as a senior adviser for communications. Jeffrey Wyly was also 26 when he was appointed to a $75,000 job as an assistant secretary of the state labor agency. That’s a 37 percent raise from what he earned working in the labor agency until last May, $54,696. Another former campaign aide, 25, became a deputy director of the state lottery ($72,500); a 28-year-old is an assistant communications director in the governor’s office ($77,682). No one doubts the deputies’ skills, but the salaries have floored people inside and outside the administration. Senior aides can reasonably argue that their skills would fetch far more in the business world, said one Schwarzenegger loyalist, who spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of antagonizing the governor. As for younger staffers, “it’s not as if the salaries are comparable to what they could be making outside, doing something else.” The new hires are all “outstanding workers” are on-call to the governor around the clock, said McLear, who spoke on their behalf. He maintains that they could, in fact, make more elsewhere. Schwarzenegger “saw a lot of these folks, up close and personal, in the campaign,” he said. “And he wanted to make sure we had the cream of the crop working to implement his vision.” Nonetheless, the overall trend worries some outsiders. “Money is not the issue when you go to work for the state of California because you’re working for the people,” said Bill Whalen of Stanford’s Hoover Institution and a former staffer to Gov. Pete Wilson. “If you want to be a capitalist, work for the private sector.” kfolmar@mercurynews.com (916) 441-4602.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Government staff generally eschew working on state and campaign payrolls simultaneously, for fear that it could appear their full effort isn’t focused on the public’s interests. Public servants are paid modestly, to safeguard taxpayer dollars. Their reward is in personal satisfaction, generous benefits and the opportunity to earn more in the private sector later. Young state workers, in particular, toil for a pittance in exchange for valuable experience and connections. Undoubtedly, exceptions to some of those rules have existed in recent administrations. But they’re particularly prevalent under Schwarzenegger. As governor, he has wide latitude to set employee salaries, so long as they fit into his overall office budget, which must be approved by the Legislature. There is a nationwide “decline in the ethos that public service trumps the material advantages of the private sector,” especially as the gap widens between public and private wages, said Bruce Cain, who directs the Institute of Governmental Studies at UC Berkeley. last_img read more

Monk rues lack of concentration from Swansea players

first_imgSwansea manager Garry Monk was left to rue lapses in concentration from his Swansea players as Newcastle shared the spoils at the Liberty Stadium.Swansea twice led through Wilfried Bony and Wayne Routledge, but Papiss Cisse scored twice for the visitors in a 2-2 draw.“I think it’s a harsh lesson in the Premier League that if you don’t concentrate you can get punished,” Monk said.Swansea are fourth in the Premier League with 11 points after the draw, but Monk feels his side should be level with second place Southampton.“I’m disappointed not to come away with three points today, we created enough chances and [goalkeeper Tim Krul] made some good saves to be honest,” he added.“We never quite did enough to get away from them. We were always in control and always looked like we were going to win the game, but teams only need one or two chances, which is what they had and then they scored the two goals.”last_img read more

Mexico storm moves north; President Fox promises help

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWhy these photogenic dumplings are popping up in Los AngelesPresident Vicente Fox visited Los Cabos on Sunday and walked through a hurricane-battered neighborhood in La Paz, a city of more than 150,000 among the hardest hit. The president viewed concrete homes whose tin roofs had been ripped off. “Fortunately there is no human loss and the impact is relatively modest,” Fox said as he pledged to help residents whose homes had been affected. A total of 160 houses in the area lost their roofs and four houses collapsed, officials said. About 1,155 people remained in government shelters. The storm initially was forecast to slam into the resort area of Los Cabos and move westward out to sea. But Blake said a high-pressure ridge was weaker than expected and that allowed the storm to keep traveling north up the peninsula. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! LA PAZ, Mexico – The remnants of Hurricane John made a soggy march up the Baja California peninsula Sunday, soaking fishing villages and retirement communities and threatening flooding in parts of the U.S. Southwest. The storm was downgraded to a tropical depression late Sunday but was still dumping rain on the normally arid Baja. State officials said as much as 20 inches had fallen in isolated areas, and forecasters said John was threatening to cause deadly flash floods. It was also expected to dump up to 3 inches of rain in desert areas from Southern California to west Texas in the next few days and could cause some flooding, said meteorologist Eric Blake of the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami. John was a Category 2 hurricane with winds of 110 mph when it hit the southern tip of the peninsula late Friday. But officials reported no deaths and little destruction, though some shantytown shacks were blown down. last_img read more

James Brown fans bid final farewell to singer at memorial in his Georgia hometown

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) – More than 8,500 James Brown fans filled an arena bearing his name Saturday in a final, joyful farewell to the singer that seemed as fitting for a civil rights leader as for “The Godfather of Soul.” Mourners returned to Brown’s hometown to pay tribute to the musician, who some fans also considered a political figure. “‘I’m black and I’m proud’ was the most influential black slogan of the 1960s,” said fan Maynard Eaton, referring to the chorus of the Brown standard “Say It Loud.” Brown’s body lay in front of the bandstand. Fans lined up in the rain before dawn to get in. When James Brown Arena was full, they gathered on the streets outside to listen to the service over a public address system. The Revs. Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson and a tearful Michael Jackson were among those who took turns at the podium overlooking the casket where Brown lay in a black jacket and gloves, red shirt and sequined shoes. “We come to thank God for James Brown, because only God could have made a James Brown possible,” said Sharpton, a longtime Brown confidant who also spoke at a boisterous ceremony Thursday at the famed Apollo Theater in New York and a private service Friday. Brown, 73, died of heart failure Dec. 25 in Atlanta while hospitalized for treatment of pneumonia. Jesse Jackson said Saturday that Brown had “upstaged Santa on Christmas Day.” Michael Jackson, whose arrival sparked a roar from the crowd, bowed before the casket and shared a hug with Sharpton just as Brown’s latest backup band, the Soul Generals, started to play. “James Brown is my greatest inspiration,” the pop star told mourners, adding that when he was a child, his mother would wake him, regardless of the hour, whenever Brown was on TV. “When I saw him move, I was mesmerized,” Jackson said. “I knew that’s what I wanted to do for the rest of my life because of James Brown.” Brown was born in Barnwell, S.C., in 1933 and spent much of his childhood in Augusta, singing and dancing for change on street corners. Even when he became an international superstar, Brown considered Augusta his home. Much of the funeral took on the feel of one of Brown’s famously high-energy concerts. The Soul Generals cranked out Brown hits including “Soul Power,” “I Feel Good” and “It’s a Man’s Man’s Man’s World” for a crowd that clapped, cheered and danced in the aisles. “I can hear Mr. Brown now,” said Charles Bobbitt, Brown’s longtime manager who was with him when he died. “He’s saying ‘St. Peter … I don’t deal with the middle man. Take me to the main man.’” The service was followed by a private burial. Brown’s hits, such as “I Got You (I Feel Good)” and “Papa’s Got A Brand New Bag,” inspired generations of soul, funk, disco, rock and rap artists. A day earlier, thousands of fans poured into the Apollo in Harlem for a sometimes raucous celebration of Brown at the venue where one of his concerts launched him into the international spotlight in 1956. “He was a God-sent person _ almost like an angel,” said Vickie Greene, who saw her first Brown show more than 30 years ago and attended Saturday’s ceremony. While growing up in Augusta, Brown sometimes committed petty crimes that landed him in reform school. In later years, he returned annually to give away Thanksgiving turkeys to needy families. The community was also the scene of a drug-fueled police chase that landed Brown a 15-month stint in prison. The city named a street after Brown a decade ago and last year erected a statue of him in a downtown park. Earlier this year, Augusta’s main auditorium was also named in his honor.last_img read more
