…as annual report handed over to ParliamentThe Women and Gender Equality Commission (W&GEC) on Wednesday handed over its annual report to the National Assembly while calling for more sensitisation on the code of law on women’s rights as well as the speedy establishment of the Human Rights Commission.The call was made by W&GEC Chairperson Indranie Chandarpal as she highlighted a few of the recommendations from the annual report.“We have recommended that they produce a harmonised code of law on women’s rights and this should be one book that contains all the law protecting women but set out as a code and separate laws. The codes should be harmonised with international law obligations and with other national laws to ensure that there areW&GEC Chairperson Indranie Chandarpal hands over the seventh annual report to Speaker of the National Assembly, Dr Barton Scotlandno gaps in the protection afforded to women,” she added.The Chairperson explained that the codes should be simplified so persons from various walks of life can understand their rights.According to her, “Guyana should submit the report to the committee established to monitor compliance under the Convention of Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination.”She added that the country should ratify the optional protocol of the Convention of the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women, which will allow for individual petitions.In addition, Chandarpal stated, “We are hoping that the Human Rights Commission would be in place very shortly because all of us are aware that the Human Rights Commission has a role to play in all these Rights Commissions, that is the admin arm of these Commissions and because of the slothful nature in having the Commission in place, it is causing some difficulties in terms of getting things done in a very timely way.”Meanwhile, Speaker of the National Assembly, Dr Barton Scotland spoke of some of the difficulties faced in moving forward.“When we had passed the law that enabled the constitutional agencies to enjoy independence, in the financial area, I had said to all the heads of the agencies at that time that there would be some difficulties in moving from (point) A to B, but I did ask the heads of the agencies to let me know whether they are moving at all, given the new dispensation or if they are moving too slowly,” he asserted.According to him, so far, only one agency would have raised concerns with him in this regard.In handing the report over to the Speaker, Chandarpal said she hoped the recommendations made in the report will be acted upon after consideration.

One of Donegal’s rural roads has been identified on a list of Ireland’s worst accident blackspots.A new analysis of the most treacherous road segments in Ireland has shown that the N56 in Gaoth Dobhair, where the road meets the junction of the R258 and crosses the Clady Bridge, is one of the 20 most dangerous areas.The research carried out by Gamma Location Intelligence found that the Donegal segment had a collision rate of 125, based on the number of road accidents per 100 million vehicle kilometres. The most dangerous stretch of road was found to be in Galway, located just east of Kylemore Lough, from Cliften to near Leenaune along the N59. This road had a collision rate of 1131.Richard Garry, Director of Location Intelligence for Gamma said: “Overall, according to the data provided by Transport Infrastructure Ireland, collision rates are decreasing across the country.“However, there are specific stretches of roads where the frequency of collisions is still high.“Not only does this analysis show drivers where they need to take extra care; it is also useful for insurance companies as it identifies the areas which are worst for road accidents and enables them to better assess risk.” West Donegal road named as one of Ireland’s most dangerous areas was last modified: September 26th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)

We recap some of what the Italian had to say.Conte on Stoke and the title race“To start it is important to beat Stoke. It won’t be easy because it is a really strong, physical team but also with great players with good technique. We must pay great attention and be focused.“In the game at Stamford Bridge Stoke played very well. We won 4-2 but the game was played very well by both teams. Stoke has a really good team and a good coach.“Now we need 24 points to win the league and it is important to go game by game without looking forward.“This league is very tough and any game you can lose. There are 11 games to go and tomorrow we will have a tough test.”On Eden Hazard and his treatment by Manchester UnitedEmbed from Getty Images“In the first 20-25 minutes I see only for him these type of situations (fouls) and it was impossible for him to play football.“But I understand that in football there these type of situation. I don’t like this. I always want to face a team who want to beat us by playing football. It is important.“Eden is showing great football but also showing great character and personality. He is growing a lot in this aspect. It is fantastic, not only for him but also for the team.“Hazard is a player that is very difficult to stop. For this reason you try to stop him with a good or bad way, but I am not worried because he is very strong physically and is showing me he is able to play in this league. He is not tall but he is strong.”On Chelsea selling Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu LukakuEmbed from Getty Images“It is very difficult to take always the best decision. Sometimes it can happen that you think one thing and in the future it is a different situation. Football is not simple to give always a correct evaluation for all players.“Sometimes I think that a player last season and two years ago did not play well and then plays a fantastic season.”On his contract“It is the same. I told you every week. It is important for me and the players to focus on the present. We have a target and it is important to try to reach this target. For me and the players then we are ready to face every situation.“But I repeat, I am very happy to be Chelsea’s coach and want to continue this way for many years.”On reports he is not happy with Chelsea transfer policy“I don’t understand because it is not true. Honestly I have a good relationship.“When I need something I speak with the club and we always try to find the right solution – but always together. If we we take the right solution it is very difficult to tell this – but we always take the decision together.”On leaving youngsters out against United Embed from Getty Images“For the young players to stay in the squad of a great team it is always a great motivation.“Every day I demand and I want to see great motivation from the players. To stay in a great squad like Chelsea is a fantastic opportunity every day to show me that they are improving.“And don’t forget a lot of young players played in the League Cup and the FA Cup this season.“We want to try to win and go in the next round and for this reason I try to make the best decision for the team to go into the semi-final and it happened.”On N’Golo Kante“We have spoken a lot about him, about his characteristics. He is a fantastic player, a great player.“For us he is an important player. He is able to cover a lot of ground to win the ball. But he is a young player who can improve a lot. Without the ball he is incredible and he always has a smile on his face. He is great.”See also:Conte on Pedro, Morata, Wenger’s comments and Chelsea’s search for playersConte on Bakayoko, Hazard, Pedro’s setback and facing Spurs Ads by Revcontent Trending Articles Urologists: Men, Forget the Blue Pill!
