Dead person, previously registered persons on list

first_imgH2H ‘new’ 20,000 registrantsAs the People’s Progressive Party continues to scrutinise the list of “new” registrants in the scrapped House-to-House Registration, names of persons who were previously registered and others who are dead are on that list. In two instances of previously registered persons, former Chancellor of the Judiciary, Retired Justice Cecil Kennard is listed as a ‘new’ registrant with his occupation being Chancellor. However, Justice Kennard retired many years ago and a search of the 2015 Official List of Electors and the Preliminary List of Electors (PLE) showed that he was on that list. In another instance, former Member of Parliament and Attorney-at-Law Jai Lall Kissoon is listed as a ‘new’ registrant. A perusal of the 2015 OLE and the PLE also shows that he is already registered. Additionally, the brother of a former Guyana Revenue Authority official, who died in 2007 is listed as a ‘new’ registrant.Addressing the issue at a luncheon in New York on Saturday, Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo said that the party has found that thousands of persons who are listed as “new” registrants are already on the PLE.“Just to show how things evolve, I left Guyana Friday morning under the impression that we will have 20556 persons, who they claimed are new registrants that GECOM will [carry out the]verification of those persons before they’re added to the voters’ list or the NRR from which they will extract the OLE…By the time I’m driving to the airport, it changed. So Lowenfield [Keith] called Zulfikar [Mustapha] that the PPP will have to do the verification, not GECOM. And so that can result now in 20000 names being added to the voters’ list who are unverified…To get it down to 20,000 was another fight…We managed to get the numbers down from 37000 to 20000 after they did the fingerprint cross-matching…We found 50 per cent of the new people already in [the] list… they just found former Chancellor of the Judiciary, Cecil Kennard is now on the list of new registrants. He’s already on the PLE but part of the 20,000 new registrants,” the Opposition Leader said.On Friday, despite discovering significant inaccuracies in the House-to-House (H2H) data that was cross-matched overseas, GECOM made a decision to move ahead with including some 20,000 names onto the voters’ list without verifying them. However, the Commission has now placed the onus on the Opposition – People’s Progressive Party – to verify the new registrants.Some 370,000 registrations obtained during the scrapped H2H exercise were sent overseas to be cross-matched with the National Register of Registrants Database (NRRD) in order to filter out the duplicates.However, it was recently reported that international digital security company, Gemalto, indicated that some 37,300 were new registrants who are eligible for voting, that is, they are above the age of 18.But an internal check conducted by GECOM showed that approximately 17,000 of those “new registrants” were already on the voters’ list and some even voted in the past.The remaining 20,000 “new names” were up for further verification. Earlier this week, it was reported that the Government-nominated Commissioners were pushing to have a sample survey done from a sample size of 10 per cent from the 20,000 to verify these new names before they go on the voters’ list – a process which the PPP Opposition had objected to.In a statement on Friday, PPP Executive and former Attorney General Anil Nandlall indicated that the Elections Commission will not be verifying the names.“Today [Friday], GECOM has decided that it will do no verification; that the PPP scrutineers alone will have to do the field verification checks in respect of these new intended registrants and that GECOM officials will only work in the offices. This is totally unacceptable,” Nandlall contended.He noted that this decision by the Commission can only be viewed as retrograde and has the potential of impugning the integrity of the Official List of Electors (OLE) and by extension, the entire General and Regional Elections set for March 2, 2020.“I can understand why the Government Commissioners may not want a 100 per cent verification exercise, because if this data is padded and fraudulent then the verification exercise will unmask it. However, the law mandates that not a single name must eventuate unto the OLE without verification. GECOM has an unconditional duty to ensure compliance with this legal requirement. Nothing short will suffice,” the former Attorney General asserted.On August 27, GECOM announced that the controversial House-to-House Registration process would be halted on August 31.last_img read more

Preacher Brings God Satan and Hitler to SDCC

first_img 11 Forgotten Vertigo Comics That Would Make Awesome TV ShowsThe Greatest Romances in Comic Book History Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. It might seem weird for a TV show that’s midway through its season to have a Comic Con panel, but Preacher has a lot of good stuff to show off. The season took its time to get going, but from the looks of the Comic Con trailer screened at the panel last night, they’re saving the best for the second half. The footage contains pretty much everything we’ve wanted to see since Season Two ended: Hitler on Earth, the Allfather of The Grail, Satan in Angelville…. you know what? Just watch it. So that’s pretty much everything we come to Preacher for. In the panel afterwards, the cast and creators spoke about moving Angelville up in the story. Executive producer Sam Caitlin says they really wanted to get to Jesse’s grandma as fast as they could, according to CBR. “Tulip dies in the comic, but yeah we just sort of moved it up the schedule a bit. We always knew we had to go back to Angelville. It wouldn’t be Preacher if we didn’t see Gramma,” he said. Dominic Cooper agreed, saying their relationship lets him explore Jesse’s duality in a way the previous seasons didn’t get to.Ruth Negga promised that we should see plenty more of Tulip getting creative with her weaponry. That’s been one of the highlights of the show since the beginning, and we haven’t gotten to see much of it this season. It sounds like that’s going to change. “What I quite like is the peculiar weapons that she chooses. She just gets very creative. The writers got creative, and I followed through. That’s a lot of fun. They’re very tongue-in-cheek fight scenes and they’re just so funny to do,” She said. Negga added that she also deeply appreciates the stunt performers who work on the show for being so patient while she learns the moves. “He’s very good working with someone who’s… I’m not very good at fighting, and I’ve got two left feet as well.”Ruth Negga (Photo via AMC)The sentiments were echoed by the rest of the cast, and Caitlin admitted they just start writing fight scenes with the objects they want to use. “At this point, the scripts pretty much just say ‘a fight that involves a banana and this, an intestine.”They also further teased us about what we’ll see in the rest of Season Three. The love triangle between Jesse, Tulip and Cassidy probably won’t get revealed, but as we saw in the trailer, Cass gets to do a whole bunch of vampire stuff. Where things get really gross though, is the Grail. We meet the Allfather who eats pretty much everything. And throws it up. “He has a little wand to stick down his throat to make him throw up sometimes,” producer Evan Goldberg said.Rogen added this detail, “There’s a scene where they eat a horse. It was one of our favorite characters from the comics and is truly just a bizarre character and we hope to make good on that promise.” Well, it certainly sounds like they are.As for what we’ll see in the near future, this coming episode has Jesse submerged in water in a coffin. Cooper revealed he was actually in the coffin during that scene, a fact which surprised Rogen. He… doesn’t seem too thrilled about it. “We did not know that,” he said, according to Entertainment Weekly. “That’s the first we’re hearing of that. There was no need for that shot!” Rogen said the important thing was that no one got hurt, and that they’d “settle this later.” Whatever that means.For a show with as many fight scenes as Preacher has, they do take safety very seriously. Especially when so many of the fight scenes are improvised. They really do just write the items they want to be used. In a clip not released to the public, attendees got to see Jesse and Tulip fight T.C. and Jody. It’s the match-up we’ve been waiting for all season, and the rest of us will just have to wait until it airs on TV to see it.Noah Taylor as Adolf Hitler (Photo Credit: Michele K. Short/AMC/Sony Pictures Television)And yes, we will see Hitler very soon. As this season’s opening credits implies, he is indeed working at a sandwich shop. Though it’s clearly meant to be Subway, it seems the fast food chain had a problem with the suggestion that it would hire Adolph Hitler. Shame, because the Sandwich Artist jokes could be hilarious.“Hitler is too much for Subway. They’ve had some questionable sponsorship,” Rogen said. He later added that they never realized having Hitler as a character on the show would have real-world political implications. “We never guessed having Hitler on our show would be relevant. I wish it wasn’t. When we first did it, we were like ‘this is crazy’… but now it’s like ‘wow, there’s a lot we could be saying’ because we have Hitler on our show.”It really sounds like the best of Season Three is yet to come. The show has already begun to pick up and now, Tulip’s determined to kick God’s ass. It sounds like that’s definitely coming, but they may be holding the confrontation for next season. The producers realize though, that a confrontation with God is going to have to happen sooner rather than later. “One of these days he’s going to have to find God… and I think it’ll look pretty similar [to the comics]… I think Jesse needs to hold Him to account, whatever that looks like,” Caitlin said. Rogen and Goldberg agreed, saying that the season finale sets up a lot of what comics readers have been waiting for. So that sounds promising.Until then, we’ll just have to keep watching Preacher as it airs Sundays at 10 p.m. on AMC. Stay on targetlast_img read more
