Coalition Govt decides to hold elections simultaneously

Leaders of coalition parties in the government have unanimously decided that elections will be held simultaneously across the country after completion of constitutional term of the incumbent government.

The decision was taken at a high-level consultative meeting of heads of all parties in the coalition government held in Islamabad on Wednesday with Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif in the chair.

Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) chief Maulana Fazl-ur-Rehman, Chairman Pakistan People’s Party Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and leaders of other parties attended the meeting.

The meeting discussed the overall situation of the country and especially the issues emanating from verdicts of Supreme Court’s controversial benches regarding the holding of elections in the country.

The meeting reposed full confidence in the leadership of Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif. Maintaining that the authority to take all national decisions rests with the Prime Minister, the meeting reiterated the resolve to support all decisions by the Prime Minister.

The meeting clarified that the ruling parties have already started the process of political consultation within themselves regarding transparent, free and impartial elections in the country on a single day therefore Supreme Court’s mediatory role in this purely political matter is inappropriate. 

The meeting noted that the process of dialogue, consultation and consensus lies within the exclusive domain of political parties and they have been doing it successfully for years. It unanimously decided to keep the matter within the same ambit and brooded over the future strategy for taking the ongoing consultation process to the next stage.

Discussing the Supreme Court’s verdict of 19th of this month, the meeting deplored that the apex court’s order that federal government should release money without the approval of the Parliament ignores the basic scheme of Constitution.   

The meeting also expressed strong resentment over the Court’s observation that the Prime Minister has lost the

Senator Cynthia Villar says feud with BF Resort Village behind ‘malicious’ viral video of her

‘I was talking to them to remove the gate because that composting facility is for the public. And they didn’t want to,’ she explains the video showing her berating the guards

MANILA, Philippines – Senator Cynthia Villar has this to say about the viral video showing her berating security guards at BF Resort Village (BFRV) in Las Piñas: “That’s the price you pay for being a public official.”

On Wednesday, April 26, Villar faced the media to answer questions about the video, where the senator can be seen repeatedly telling the guard to remove the gate at the composting facility of the village.

“I was talking to them to remove the gate because that composting facility is for the public. And they didn’t want to, and they were arguing with me. They have plenty of security guards, and I was alone,” Villar told reporters.

Senator Cynthia Villar says feud with BF Resort Village behind ‘malicious’ viral video of her

Asked if she felt there was a malicious intent in posting the video, Villar said, “yes,” but declined to give further comments since she was in consultation with her lawyers for possible legal action.

The senator said the video that had gone viral was spliced and didn’t give the whole picture of why she was lashing out at the security guards there.

“We were there for a long time. We were waiting and sitting,” she said.

Villar also addressed the apparent homophobic slurs in the viral video, although, she didn’t apologize to the LGBTQ+ community who got offended by her remarks.

In the viral video, the president of the BFRV Homeowners Association can be heard pleading with the senator not to hurt the security guards.

“Ang laki-laki niya eh. Alangan naman saktan ko siya (He is so big. I couldn’t just hurt him). There’s something wrong with him. He is a security guard.

Dysfunctional treatment of Indigenous Australians will continue unless voice exists, Ken Wyatt says | Indigenous voice to parliament

Australian governments still have a “missionary zeal” of wanting to “deal with Aboriginal people” that hasn’t changed, and unless there is an Indigenous voice advising governments the present dysfunction will continue, the former minister for Indigenous Australians Ken Wyatt has told a parliamentary committee hearing in Perth.

Wyatt, a Yamatji man, said the dysfunction has led to what he called “a futility syndrome” among Indigenous young people, who feel despair that they have no future in the nation because they are never listened to.

“And what do you do, if you are not listened to? You rebel,” Wyatt told the joint committee on the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander voice referendum.

Ketchikan city manager nixes plans for Pride Month drag queen storytime at public library

The Ketchikan Public Library will not host another drag queen storytime as part of its Pride Month programming. That’s according to Ketchikan’s city manager, who recently reversed course and canceled the event, citing the public’s response to last year’s reading.

Ketchikan City Manager Delilah Walsh told the mayor and City Council in an email dated April 17 that drag queen storytime would not return for a second year.

“As the chief administrative officer for the City, I am ultimately responsible for all operations of the organization and I am directing that the Library not program a drag queen story time,” Walsh wrote in an email obtained by KRBD through a public records request. “I apologize for the change and appreciate the opportunity for me to dig a bit deeper; I am now very firm in my resolve moving forward.”

The city of Ketchikan has a council-manager system of government, meaning the city manager acts as the city’s chief administrator, subject to direction by the City Council.

The decision is the latest development in a long-running debate over LGBTQ programming at Ketchikan’s library. Last June, the Ketchikan Public Library held its first-ever storytime with a drag queen to celebrate Pride Month and promote inclusivity. 

The drag queen Luna, portrayed by high school drama teacher Tommy Varela, read a picture book to dozens of children and guided them through a series of simple dance moves alongside a children’s librarian.

The event was wildly popular: Luna had to read the book three separate times to accommodate all the attendees. The library director said it was the biggest storytime on record. 

But the runup to the drag queen event was marked by controversy. The issue dominated two Ketchikan City

Myrtle Beach stopped providing free beach wheelchairs. It’s the only area city to do so

The Myrtle Beach Police Department quietly stopped lending out free specialty wheelchairs for the beach over a year ago, after suspending the service because of COVID, making it the only coastal Horry County municipality to not offer the service.

While city leaders said the program was an additional perk similar to police directing traffic, disability advocates say they believe the move could keep people off the beach because of the expense of renting or purchasing the beach wheelchairs.

Although Myrtle Beach officials, including city manager Jonathan “Fox” Simons, Jr. and city spokesperson Mark Kruea, said discontinuing the rental program would save money, neither could immediately provide figures on exactly how much. Also unknown is how often the wheelchairs were used.

Kruea wrote in an email that the program “did not have a designated cost … It was a service, just like directing traffic at school zones.”

Information about the now-discontinued service was scrubbed from the police department website following the Sun News’ inquiry into the program.

Standard wheelchairs sink in the soft sand, so beach wheelchairs, with their large tires, allow wheelchair users to traverse the beach. Without the free program, visitors can choose between a multi-day rental from private companies — from $30-50 a day — or buying a beach wheelchair, at an average cost of $2,500, according to the owner of Wheelchairs and Scooters of Myrtle Beach.

Before spring 2020, the Myrtle Beach Police Department dropped off and picked up beach wheelchairs free of charge for use on municipal beaches on a first-come first-served basis. City officials said the program, which started in the ‘90s, had around six wheelchairs.

The city also tried to axe the program in 2016, but reversed its decision within a few days after receiving calls and emails from residents. At the time,

Submissions for No case reveal obsession with ‘activist judges’

It outraged the Coalition, who were flummoxed that three of the four judges in the majority had been appointed by the Abbott, Turnbull and Morrison governments. They had worked on the basis that there was no impediment if the government wanted to “send home” someone who was not a resident, and who had committed a criminal offence that carried a sentence of 12 months or more.

Submissions from former High Court judge Ian Callinan, former prime minister Tony Abbott, former attorney-general Philip Ruddock, former royal commissioner Terry Cole and the Samuel Griffith Society either cite Love or go down the “activist judges” road.

Common thread

Another common thread is they vehemently oppose any process that would give most Indigenous people what they want – a representative body enshrined in the Constitution.

Callinan said it “would be imprudent to underestimate the capacity of any future High Court for ingenuity or originality”.

“It was not until 1992, when the High Court was some 90-years-old, that it was able to discover in the text and structure of the Constitution something that had never been discerned before, an implied freedom of political communication.”

Callinan cited Love to refute the opinion of Solicitor-General Stephen Donaghue, KC, that there was no room for implications in the current drafting, such as a right for the Voice to be consulted.

“The opinion of the solicitor-general on any constitutional topic is worth having, but it is not the solicitor-general who has the say here, it is the [High] Court.

“Equally, the public might be interested in what the opinion of the solicitor-general was of the likelihood of success of the Commonwealth in the case of Love v Commonwealth.

‘Classic case’

“I doubt whether many lawyers or the solicitor-general, who unsuccessfully argued the case for the Commonwealth, gave an

Mental health care help is available

May is Mental Health awareness month and the past few years have been extremely difficult to navigate. It has never been more important to talk about stress and mental strain each one of us may be experiencing. Sustained higher levels of stress can lead to depression, anxiety, fatigue, and other triggers that cause a greater propensity for attempting suicide.

The perceived stigma of mental health can also make it difficult for people to feel that they can reach out for support. There are a number of helpful sources available for people in need and I will highlight those today.
