Five Questions on Moroccan Parliamentary Elections Answered

London – With the Moroccan parliamentary elections date nearing, here is a comprehensive account of what you need to know about the upcoming elections.Elections are pivotal; it is a time when citizens have the chance to have their say in who should be elected to run their country. It is a time for democracy and a time when citizens of a nation contribute to their futures. In a nascent democracy like Morocco, voter turnout will show to what extent Moroccans believe elections will have an impact on their daily lives and their country’s future.On October 7, it is estimated that around 16 million Moroccans will head to the polls to pick representatives for the 395-seat of the lower house of parliament. How many Political parties does Morocco have?Moroccans will choose from 30 parties to represent them in the Chamber of Representatives, which is the lower house of parliament. The parliament consists of 395 seats. For a political party to be able to form a government, in needs to obtain at least 198 seats. Because of the balkanization of political parties, the prospects for a party to obtain absolute majority of seats are very dim. In the 2011 legislative elections, though the Party of Justice and Development, obtain a majority of 107 seats, it needed to form a coalition government with other parties.How many voters are expected?Around 16 million Moroccans are registered to vote. Voter turn out is generally poor in Morocco; about half of the population cast their ballots. In the 2011 parliamentary elections, 45% of registered voters participated in the elections. The lowest voter turnout in Morocco’s history was recorded in the 2007 legislative elections with only 37% of registered casting their votes.Voter turnout in this week’s election will be an important indicator of the people’s trust and support for politicians and the parties. It is further expected that some sections of society will abstain from voting.Who are the main candidates? The main battleground is held between the current ruling Islamic Justice and Development Party (PJD) and the opposition the Authenticity and Modernity Party (PAM). The Istiqlal (Independence) Party is also set to do well in the upcoming election.Despite 30 parties taking part in the elections there are 8 major parties, which enjoy a strong electoral base:Justice and Development Party (107 seats in 2011 elections)Istiqlal Party (60 seats in 2011)National Rally of Independents (52 seats in 2011)Authenticity and Modernity Party (47 seats in 2011)Socialist Union of Popular Forces (39 seats in 2011)Popular Movement (32 seats in 2011)Constitutional Union (23 seats in 2011)Progress and Socialism Party (18 seats in 2011)What are the main issues of concern to Moroccan voters? The Islamist-led government in the kingdom has struggled to reform key areas of society, which has caused dissent in the country. Health, education and pensions are sectors that remain largely unchanged.The public schooling system needs much change; many have turned to private institutions because of the state school failure.Healthcare remains in dire need of reform, with large healthcare disparities from one region to another. The health ministry has however, developed a new program of hospitals in regional and provincial areas, which have been taking place throughout the year, with an annual budget of one billion dirhams over a five-year period.Unemployment also, plagues the country, unemployment benefit has been implemented in the country, however, its eligibility conditions make it difficult to obtain.Who are not voting?Observers fear that millions will abstain from the upcoming elections, as a move to show their dismay and dissatisfaction with current government progress. Millions of Moroccans have lost trust in their politicians and believe that whether they vote or not, the elections will not have no impact on their daily lives. Most political parties are accused of cronyism and corruption.Though the 2011 constitution guarantees the rights of Moroccans living abroad to vote in the elections, this provision has not been implemented. Over five millions of Moroccans living abroad are deprived of their right to choose the representatives who will run their country in the coming five years. read more

General Assembly elects first members to new Human Rights Council

The United Nations General Assembly today elected 47 members of the recently established UN Human Rights Council – a move immediately welcomed by Secretary-General Kofi Annan as an opportunity for a fresh start as the new body replaces the much criticized and now defunct Human Rights Commission.Noting that the Council will be required to conduct a regular review of the human rights record of all countries beginning with those serving on it, Mr. Annan said through a spokesman: “This will give its members the chance to show the depth of their commitment to promote human rights both at home and abroad.”With all countries taking part in the voting, Mr. Annan said that the high rate of participation reflected “a widely shared commitment to replace the previous Commission on Human Rights with a body that can work more effectively, and can embody human rights ideals with more credibility; and that the Council elected today offers the United Nations a unique opportunity to make a fresh start in its vital work of upholding the highest standards of human rights.”All regions – Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, and Western Europe and Other states – obtained or exceeded the required 96-vote majority needed to fill their allocated number of members, except the Eastern European States, where only the Russian Federation, Poland and the Czech Republic won seats on the first ballot, while Ukraine, Azerbaijan and Romania were elected in a second round.Speaking to reporters after the vote, General Assembly President Jan Eliasson described it as a “truly historic occasion” reflecting the will of all 191 Member States of the world body. He also echoed Mr. Annan’s point about self-scrutiny on the Council. “I find it very important that all Member States have made pledges and commitments to human rights which they are expected to live up to, and also that they have accepted, by their membership in the Human Rights Council, to be reviewed, that their human rights record is to be reviewed,” he said.Ghana topped the voting for the 13 African seats, which also included South Africa and Algeria, while India received the most votes for the 13 Asian seats, which also included China, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia.Brazil received the most votes for the 8 Latin American and Caribbean seats, which also included Cuba and Uruguay, while Germany received the most votes for the 7 Western European and Other States region, which included France and the United Kingdom.Mr. Eliasson said he would not comment on any individual country’s performance relating to its human rights record, instead stressing the principle that all members of the Council will have their human rights record reviewed.“Let us remember that the three pillars of the United Nations are security, development and human rights. Without security, no development; without development, no security; but without respect for human rights, no lasting security, no lasting development.” The United States was among only four countries that voted against setting up the Human Rights Council in a resolution in March that passed with 170 countries in favour and three abstentions, with the US saying that the new body does not go far enough in its reforms.Despite its ‘no’ vote however, US Ambassador John Bolton has pledged that Washington will work cooperatively with other Member States to make the Council as effective as possible.The Council will hold its first meeting in Geneva on 19 June. read more

Pilot error and faulty equipment caused 2009 Air France crash investigators say

Pilot error and faulty equipment caused 2009 Air France crash, investigators say AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by News Staff Posted Jul 5, 2012 2:36 pm MDT LE BOURGET, France – A combination of faulty sensors and mistakes by inadequately trained pilots caused an Air France jet to plunge into the Atlantic Ocean in 2009, killing all 228 people aboard in the airline’s deadliest ever crash, French investigators said Thursday.Investigators are urging better instruction for pilots on flying manually at high altitudes and stricter plane certification rules as a result of a three-year investigation into what happened to Flight 447.Airbus, manufacturer of the A330 plane, said in a statement that it is working to improve speed sensors known as pitot tubes and making other efforts to avoid future such accidents. Air France stressed the equipment troubles and insisted the pilots “acted in line with the information provided by the cockpit instruments and systems. …. The reading of the various data did not enable them to apply the appropriate action.”But the Bureau for Investigations and Analysis’ findings raised broader concerns about training for pilots worldwide flying high-tech planes when confronted with a high-altitude crisis.The report also could have legal implications: A separate French judicial investigation is still under way, and Air France and Airbus have been handed preliminary manslaughter charges.The bureau’s analysis lists a combination of “human and technical factors” behind the crash. The plane flying from Rio de Janeiro to Paris slammed into the sea during a nighttime thunderstorm on June 1, 2009.Some families of victims felt investigators didn’t focus hard enough on the equipment problems, saying the two pilots at the controls were doing what they could while faced with a barrage of inaccurate information.Ice crystals that blocked the pitot tubes were the “unleashing event” that set off the plane’s troubles, chief investigator Alain Bouillard said. The plane’s autopilot shut off and the co-pilots had to fly manually, while a succession of alarms were going off. The captain was on a rest break.In one fatal decision, the report says, one of the co-pilots nosed the Airbus A330 upward during a stall — instead of downward, as he should have — because of false data from sensors about the plane’s position. Bouillard said that was an “important element” of the cause of the crash.He said the two pilots at the controls never understood that the plane was in a stall. He said only a well-experienced crew with a clear understanding of the situation could have stabilized the plane in those conditions.“In this case, the crew was in a state of near-total loss of control,” Bouillard said.Robert Soulas, who lost his daughter and son-in-law in the crash, says investigators said the flight director system indicated the “erroneous information” that the plane was diving downward, “and therefore to compensate, the pilot had a tendency to pull on the throttle to make it rise up.”However, the plane was in a stall instead. A basic manoeuvr for stall recovery, which pilots are taught at the outset of their flight training, is to push the yoke forward and apply full throttle to lower the nose of the plane and build up speed. But because the pilot thought the plane was diving, he nosed up.Some families of people who died in the crash showed sympathy toward the pilots, saying they were dealing with bad equipment in an exceptionally challenging situation.Soulas noted that manufacturers had known for years about problems with the plane’s speed sensors freezing over, but didn’t order the faulty models systematically replaced until after the crash.Pilot Gerard Arnoux said, “A normal pilot on a normal airliner follows” the signals on the flight director system, which tells them to go left, right, up or down.Central to this accident is the fact that when the automation failed, the pilots were presented with conflicting information which was obviously incorrect, said William Voss, president of the Flight Safety Foundation in Alexandria, Virginia. But they were unable to look through this and understand what the aircraft was actually doing.“Pilots a generation ago would have done that and understand what was going on, but (the AF447 pilots) were so conditioned to rely on the automation that they were unable to do this,” he said.“This is a problem not just limited to Air France or Airbus,” Voss said. “It’s a problem we’re seeing around the world because pilots are being conditioned to treat automated processed data as truth, and not compare it with the raw information that lies underneath.”The final report included a study of the plane’s black box flight recorders, uncovered in a costly and extraordinarily complex search in the ocean depths.Lais Seba, the mother of 31-year-old victim Luciana Clarkson Seba, said “it’s going to be forever difficult” for survivors to deal with the loss of their loved-ones.“We are surviving,” she said. “We live one day at a time, with lots of pain, and always missing her.”___Angela Charlton in Paris, Catherine Gaschka in Le Bourget, Slobodan Lekic in Brussels and Jenny Barchfield in Rio contributed to this report. read more

Saudi king checks sons power amid Khashoggi crisis

first_imgSaudi Arabia`s King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud. Photo: ReutersSo grave is the fallout from the disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi that King Salman has felt compelled to intervene, five sources with links to the Saudi royal family said.Last Thursday, 1 October, the king dispatched his most trusted aide, Prince Khaled al-Faisal, governor of Mecca, to Istanbul to try to defuse the crisis.World leaders were demanding an explanation and concern was growing in parts of the royal court that the king’s son Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, to whom he has delegated vast powers, was struggling to contain the fallout, the sources said.During Prince Khaled’s visit, Turkey and Saudi Arabia agreed to form a joint working group to investigate Khashoggi’s disappearance. The king subsequently ordered the Saudi public prosecutor to open an inquiry based on its findings.“The selection of Khaled, a senior royal with high status, is telling as he is the king’s personal adviser, his right hand man and has had very strong ties and a friendship with (Turkish President) Erdogan,” said a Saudi source with links to government circles.Since the meeting between Prince Khaled and Erdogan, King Salman has been “asserting himself” in managing the affair, according to a different source, a Saudi businessman who lives abroad but is close to royal circles.Saudi officials did not immediately respond to Reuters questions about the king’s involvement in helping to supervise the crisis. A spokesman for Prince Khaled referred Reuters to government representatives in Riyadh.Khashoggi, a U.S. resident and leading critic of Prince Mohammed, vanished after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on Oct. 2. Turkish officials say they believe the Saudi journalist was murdered there and his body removed, allegations which Saudi Arabia has strongly denied.Initially the king, who has handed the day-to-day running of Saudi Arabia to his son, commonly known as MbS, was unaware of the extent of the crisis, according to two of the sources with knowledge of the Saudi royal court. That was partly because MbS aides had been directing the king to glowing news about the country on Saudi TV channels, the sources said.That changed as the crisis grew.“Even if MbS wanted to keep this away from the king he couldn’t because the story about Khashoggi’s disappearance was on all the Arab and Saudi TV channels watched by the king,” one of the five sources said.“The king started asking aides and MbS about it. MbS had to tell him and asked him to intervene when Khashoggi’s case became a global crisis,” this source said.Since he acceded to the throne in January 2015, the king has given MbS, his favourite son, increasing authority to run Saudi Arabia. But the king’s latest intervention reflects growing disquiet among some members of the royal court about MbS’s fitness to govern, the five sources said.MbS, 33, has implemented a series of high-profile social and economic reforms since his father’s accession, including ending a ban on women driving and opening cinemas in the conservative kingdom.But he has also marginalized senior members of the royal family and consolidated control over Saudi’s security and intelligence agencies.His reforms have been accompanied by a crackdown on dissent, a purge of top royals and businessmen on corruption charges, and a costly war in Yemen.Khashoggi’s disappearance has further tarnished the crown prince’s reputation, deepening questions among Western allies and some Saudis about his leadership.“Even if he is his favourite son, the king needs to have a comprehensive view for his survival and the survival of the royal family,” said a fourth Saudi source with links to the royal court.“In the end it will snowball on all of them.”Saudi officials did not immediately respond to Reuters requests for comment.MISCALCULATIONSaudi Arabia has repeatedly denied any role in Khashoggi’s disappearance. But the sources familiar with the royal court said the reaction from the United States, an ally for decades, had contributed to the king’s intervention.“When the situation got out of control and there was an uproar in the United States, MbS informed his father that there was a problem and that they have to face it,” another source with knowledge of the royal court said.The crown prince and his aides had initially thought the crisis would pass but they “miscalculated its repercussions”, this source said.Turkish officials have made clear they believe Khashoggi was killed inside the consulate, and two Turkish sources have told Reuters police have audio recordings to back up that assertion.U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham, a Republican close to President Donald Trump, on Tuesday accused MbS of ordering Khashoggi’s murder and called him a “wrecking ball” who is jeopardizing relations with the United States. He did not say what evidence he was basing the allegation on.Trump said on Thursday he presumed Khashoggi was dead but that he still wanted to get to the bottom of what exactly happened. Asked what would be the consequences for Saudi Arabia, Trump said: “Well, it’ll have to be very severe. I mean, it’s bad, bad stuff. But we’ll see what happens.”Trump has previously said “rogue killers” may have been responsible and has ruled out cancelling arms deals worth tens of billions of dollars. On Tuesday, Trump said he had spoken with MbS and that the crown prince told him he did not know what had happened in the consulate where Khashoggi went missing.The case poses a dilemma for the United States, as well as Britain and other Western nations. Saudi Arabia is the world’s top oil exporter, spends lavishly on Western arms and is an ally in efforts to contain the influence of Iran.But in a sign of the damage, a succession of international banking and business chiefs, including IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde, JP Morgan Chief Executive Jamie Dimon and Ford Chairman Bill Ford, have pulled out of a high-profile investment conference in Saudi Arabia this month.U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on Thursday also abandoned plans to attend, as did Britain’s trade minister and the French and Dutch finance ministers, putting the event in question.Saudi officials have said they plan to move forward with the conference, scheduled for Oct. 23-25, despite the wave of cancellations.Neither JP Morgan nor Ford would elaborate on the reasons for the decision not to attend and did not comment on whether concerns about the disappearance of Khashoggi were a factor.Lagarde had previously said she was “horrified” by media reports about Khashoggi’s disappearance. An IMF spokesperson did not give a reason for her deferring her trip to the Middle East.TAKING CONTROLBefore the king’s intervention, Saudi authorities had been striking a defiant tone, threatening on Sunday to retaliate with greater action against the U.S. and others if sanctions are imposed over Khashoggi’s disappearance. A Saudi-owned media outlet warned the result would be disruption in Saudi oil production and a sharp rise in world oil prices.“Reaction and threats to the possible sanctions of the last 24 hours were still (coming) from the crown prince,” the businessman close to royal circles said on Monday. “The king is now holding the file personally … and the tone is very different.”The king has spoken directly with Erdogan and Trump in recent days. Both the king and his son met U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo when he visited Riyadh on Tuesday.King Salman, 82, spent decades as part of the inner circle of the Al Saud dynasty, which long ruled by consensus. In four decades as governor of Riyadh, he earned a reputation as a royal enforcer who punished princes who were out of line.Whether he is willing or able to resume that role in this crisis remains unclear, palace insiders say. One source with links to the royal court said the king was “captivated” by MbS and ultimately would protect him.Still, there is precedent for the king’s intervention.He stepped in this year to shelve the planned listing of national oil company Saudi Aramco, the brainchild of MbS and a cornerstone of his economic reforms, three sources with ties to government insiders told Reuters in August. Saudi officials have said the government remains committed to the plans.And when MbS gave the impression last year that Riyadh endorsed the Trump administration’s still nebulous Middle East peace plan, including U.S. recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, the king made a public correction, reaffirming Riyadh’s commitment to the Arab and Muslim identity of the city.Despite these rare instances of pushback, several of the sources close to the royal family said that King Salman had grown increasingly detached from decisions taken by MbS.“He has been living in an artificially-created bubble,” said one of the sources. Lately, though, the king’s advisers have grown frustrated and begun warning him of the risks of leaving the crown prince’s power unchecked.“The people around him are starting to tell him to wake up to what’s happening,” the source said.last_img

Costa Rican hotel owners demand increased security following tourists murder

Concern over falling tourism numbers

first_imgPAPHOS tourism authorities are concerned because Cyprus is no longer one of the first choices as a destination for visitors.Citing official data and world tourism trends, Nasos Hadjigeorgiou, executive director of the Paphos Tourism Development Agency (Etap) said: “Unfortunately Paphos and Cyprus in many tourism source countries are not in ’fashion’ nor among the first choices of travelers.”This is was supported by the low dynamic Cyprus had this year, the abundance of special offers by most hotels, the moderate occupancies, the ups and downs of arrivals and the reduction in tourism revenue, he said.Hadjigeorgiou gave several reasons for the disappointing performance of the industry this year.  In many cases the access to Cyprus was not good, Cyprus, promotion abroad was inadequate and ineffective, while development of the product was one-dimensional.Fierce competition, good weather across Europe, uncertainty over Brexit, all contributed to raising serious concerns about tourism not only 2019 but for the following years, he said.After three record years, culminating with four million visitors in 2018, arrival numbers in 2019 have been on the decline.The latest figures showed that arrivals in June dropped 6.6 per cent year-on-year as fewer Greeks, Brits and Germans visited the island.Tourist arrivals were also down 7 per cent in the first six months of the year. You May LikeCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityEarthquake coverage that comes with optionsCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoIcePopMan Notices A Strange Hole In This Lake, So He Gets A Drone, Flies It Inside And Captures ThisIcePopUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoThree arrested in connection with hotel theftsUndoCypriot tycoon launches ‘Bank of Cannabis’Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
