first_imgNew Delhi: CPI(M) leader from Kashmir Mohd Yousuf Tarigami on Tuesday criticised the Centre for detaining former chief minister Farooq Abdullah under PSA and said that “people across the border are clapping” that the government has done what they could not. Addressing a press conference with CPI(M) General Secretary Sitaram Yechury, the former member of Jammu and Kashmir Assembly said that whatever is happening in Kashmir is not in the interest of the country.

Tarigami said he was under house arrest since August 5, when the Centre announced abrogation of the special status given to Jammu and Kashmir under Article 370 of the Constitution and bifurcation of the state into Union territories. He was brought to the AIIMS here for treatment on the direction of the Supreme Court after it allowed Yechury to meet him in Srinagar and submit a report on his health condition. Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from Thursday Tarigami slammed the government over scrapping of special status to Jammu and Kashmir and contested its claim of normalcy returning to the Valley. “It has been 40 days of restrictions but the government claims there is normalcy. Do this in Delhi or any other city and see what is the situation of business, hospitals, schools and media. “How can they say that everything is under control? They are claiming that no one has been killed. I say people are dying, there is suffocation in the state,” Tarigami said. Alleging that the “very foundation of the unity of India with Kashmir is under assault”, he said, “Listen to our version, the version of the people of Kashmir. We all want to live peacefully. I am not a foreigner.” People of Jammu and Kashmir had decided to remain with secular India, Tarigami said. “Today Kashmiri politicians are in jail… people sitting across the border are clapping that you have done what we could not,” he said and hit out at the government for detaining NC leader Abdullah. “What is happening in Kashmir is not in the interest of the country. Now Kashmiri people do not have much expectations with today’s regime,” he said. Tarigami said militancy can be tackled with the help of people but the government’s policy is not helping in building trust. “I want to ask, can you build trust among people by beating them, putting them in jails, suspending internet and telephone lines, crippling the daily life? Isn’t it playing into the hands of the enemies of this country? he asked. CPI(M) General Secretary Yechury said that the ground situation is Kashmir is completely different from what the government is claiming. He also criticised Abdullah’s detention and said that the situation is “very serious” in the state. “It has been more than 40 days since the abrogation of Article 370. There is complete breakdown of communication in the state. The communication gap is isolating people,” he said. “There is no public transport and also there have been reports of shortage in medicines and treatment at hospitals. The situation needs to be improved,” Yechury said. On Sunday night, Abdullah, the 81-year-old patron of the National Conference (NC), was detained under the stringent Public Safety Act (PSA). He was under house arrest since August 5. Several other leaders were detained or arrested on the day and restrictions imposed on communication and movement of people in Jammu and Kashmir. The government has maintained that the steps were taken to maintain law and order and prevent any loss of life. Restrictions have since been lifted in Jammu and Ladakh regions. The curbs have been eased in the Valley, though mobile and internet services are still suspended, according to officials.last_img read more


New York – Cristiano Ronaldo has allegedly spent about $1.5 milion in a party during one of his recent trips to Morocco.According to Portuguese magazine Flash, which provides details of the Real Madrid star’s recent trip to Morocco, many girls were flown from Portugal to take part in the parties in a resort in Agadir, in southern Morocco.In recent weeks, the all-time scorer of the Champions League has made several trip to Morocco where he appeared in many pictures with his friend, Moroccan kickboxing champion, Badr Hari.

MONTEBELLO, Calif. — A century-old Southern California dairy that still sells milk in glass bottles is reconsidering a decision to shut down.Family owned and operated Broguiere’s Dairy in Montebello has been in business since the 1910s, and its products have a big following, especially chocolate milk and seasonal eggnog.When word of the closing got out, people began calling and coming by.Now, 73-year-old Ray Broguiere tells the Whittier Daily News they are rethinking the situation.Broguiere tells the newspaper the reasons for shutting down involve what he termed too many rules and regulations, water and air issues as well as minimum wage raises.The dairy originally had cows on site but got out of that part of the business in 1972. It currently processes milk produced elsewhere.The Associated Press read more

The OECD is weighing in on the controversy surrounding whether Canada is suffering from an economic condition known as Dutch Disease, and it’s qualified answer is yes.The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development warned in a report Wednesday that the run-up in commodity prices is leading to an uneven economy in Canada.And it says the country needs to do more to develop non-resource aspects of the economy in order to maintain high levels of employment and an equitable distribution of wealth across regions.Resource-rich provinces such as Alberta, Saskatchewan and Newfoundland and Labrador have prospered, while others have fallen behind, in part because a commodity boom has strengthened the Canadian dollar, hurting exchange-sensitive sectors such as manufacturing and tourism.A similar problem occurred in the Netherlands after its North Sea oil fields created a new source of resource wealth and contributed to the hollowing out of the manufacturing sector there, hence the term Dutch Disease.“I don’t think you can really deny it,” Peter Jarrett, one of the report’s authors, said in an interview.“You can’t explain the entire pattern of the history of manufacturing just by exchange rates. That goes too far. But anyone who argues it has no effect is clearly not looking at the data.”The issue has become politically charged in Canada ever since NDP Leader Tom Mulcair postulated this spring that Western Canada’s booming resource-based economy was undercutting central Canada’s manufacturing base. His comments were criticized as divisive by the federal government, as well as some prominent Liberals.Mulcair recently visited the oilsands in a highly publicized fence-mending mission, but has not retracted his statements.Asked to respond to the OECD analysis, Finance Minister Jim Flaherty did not answer directly, instead saying that overall the report was “laudatory” of Canada’s economic performance.Alberta Premier Alison Redford said the OECD had expressed similar views in the past, but she disagreed.“I think I’ve made it very clear with respect to Alberta’s position … we are the economic engine of the country, leading growth in the country, attracting investment at a tremendous rate, seeing tremendous opportunity across this country with respect to manufacturing jobs,” she said.The 128-page report from the multinational organization does not use the term Dutch Disease, but it traces the steep decline of manufacturing in Canada since the turn of the century and the equally sharp climb of the loonie. During the same period, demand and prices for Canadian commodities, particularly oil, also accelerated to record levels.“The export-oriented manufacturing sector had by 2011 shrunk sharply to only 12.6 per cent of total value added, down from a peak of 18.6 per cent in 2000. Its share of employment has also fallen substantially over the past decade from 15.2 per cent to 10.2 per cent and somewhat more than in the United States,” it notes.“Both outcomes have been clearly correlated with exchange-rate developments.”Meanwhile, it adds: “Alberta remains the most affluent province, thanks to its energy wealth.”The fact that Canadian manufacturing has fallen further and faster than the United States, where resources play a smaller role in the economy, can be partly explained due to exchange rate movements, Jarrett said.Other recent Canadian papers on Dutch Disease have tended to reach mixed conclusions.Last month, the Pembina Institute said what it called “oilsands fever” has spread benefits unevenly across the country and could be hiding economic turmoil down the road.A second report from the Macdonald-Laurier Institute argued that all provinces benefit from the commodity boom. And yet another, from the Institute for Research on Public Policy, split the difference — it found some evidence for the Dutch Disease phenomenon, but said the impact was smaller than feared.The OECD report does not recommend a slowing down of resource development, even in the case of the oilsands, although it continues to push for a carbon tax.Instead, it advocates that Canada boost innovation and invest in churning out skilled workers to boost productivity, which should benefit the non-resource sectors.Jarrett said another way of tackling the issue is to increase equalization payments from wealthier regions to less affluent ones.“Basically it’s a political choice as Canadians to say how much regional or provincial disparity in income per capita they think is the limit before they step in and do something about it,” he said.The OECD does not identify Dutch Disease as a central problem in the economy, although it’s advocacy for dealing with Canada’s “sluggish” productivity growth would go some way to boost growth in non-resource sectors.The report touches on a wide range of economic issues including interest rates, debt, government fiscal health and immigration.It gives the most space, however, to why Canada is unable to capitalize on its highly educated population to commercialize ideas and innovate.The country’s productivity has actually fallen since 2002, the OECD notes with alarm, while in the U.S. it has increased by 30 per cent over the past two decades.This is apparently not a unique Canadian problem. Other resource-rich countries like New Zealand and Norway also underperform when it comes to innovation, the report states.Many of the solutions for the innovation deficiency advocated by the OECD have been advanced before, including that businesses spend more on research and development and that governments devote resources to post-secondary schools that turn out highly-skilled workers.But the report takes issue with some of changes to R&D funding proposed by Flaherty in his March 29 budget. The report says Flaherty should have followed more closely the Jenkins report recommendations he commissioned by reducing the small business advantage on R&D tax credits and by not being afraid to “pick winners” as long as firms also contribute to their own research.On the current state of the economy, the OECD says Canada has weathered the global crisis comparatively well and should grow by about 2.2 per cent this year and 2.6 per cent in 2013.As it has noted before, Canada faces a potential future risk over the high levels of household debt and real estate prices.“Low interest rates are, for now, keeping mortgage and debt-servicing affordable for most, but the share of indebted households spending more than 40 per cent of their income on interest payments remains about the 2000-2010 average,” it warns.Jarrett said the house prices and debt levels are “not trivial but not enormous risks” to Canada’s financial system at the moment, adding that “luckily” trends on both fronts seem to be going in the right direction.He said failing a crisis in Europe, the Bank of Canada should start raising interest rates by the end of this year.

TORONTO – Major stock markets in New York closed at record highs Thursday amid a broad rally from banks, materials and technology companies.The Dow Jones industrial average advanced 65.19 points at 19,614.81, while the S&P 500 added 4.84 points at 2,246.19, both hitting all-time highs for a second day in a row.Banks and materials companies logged the biggest gains, with investment bank Goldman Sachs clocking in the largest advance on the Dow.Goldman has surged 33 per cent since the U.S. election last month.Financial institutions have been big winners following the surprise victory of U.S. president-elect Donald Trump, whom investors believe will want to deregulate the banking industry once he assumes the office at the White House.Banks have also been helped by rising bond yields in the U.S. and Europe, which sent interest rates higher, making loans more profitable.The surge came after the European Central Bank surprised investors by saying it will reduce the size of its monthly bond purchases starting in March. The ECB still expects to spend US$579 billion on purchases into 2017.Although it did not hint at when it will stop the stimulus program, the decrease has investors thinking the ECB will gradually stop buying bonds and will start raising interest rates in response to a healthier economy.The Nasdaq composite also set a record, adding 23.60 points at 5,417.36.Susan Da Sie, a senior portfolio manager at Manulife Asset Management, said that Trump’s election has been viewed as positive due to his desire to lower the corporate tax rate from 35 per cent to between 15 to 20 per cent, as well as his views on the repatriation of corporate money held overseas.Lower corporate tax rates would mean bigger profits for U.S. companies, which would see strength on their balance sheets. Repatriation would result in more taxes for the U.S. government and Da Sie said it’s estimated that firms have as much as US$2 trillion abroad.But she cautioned, stock markets may be getting ahead of themselves because Trump hasn’t even been inaugurated to the Oval Office yet. The brash billionaire is set to be sworn in on Jan. 20.“Obviously, he is a very unpredictable person so we don’t really know what is going to be done,” Da Sie said.“There is a lot that is uncertain but there is also a mandate for change.”In Toronto, the S&P/TSX composite index gained 57.45 points at 15,295.20 amid higher oil prices.The January crude oil contract climbed $1.07 to US$50.84 per barrel, as the Canadian dollar added 0.26 of a U.S. cent at 75.81 cents US.Other commodity markets were negative as the February gold contract dropped $5.10 at US$1,172.40 per ounce, March copper contracts lost two cents at US$2.63 per pound, and January natural gas was up nine cents at US$3.70 per mmBTU.— With files from The Associated PressFollow @LindaNguyenTO on Twitter. by Linda Nguyen, The Canadian Press Posted Dec 8, 2016 9:13 am MDT Last Updated Dec 8, 2016 at 3:51 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TSX, New York stock markets rally as crude prices top US$50 a barrel read more

first_img NEW: Here’s the letter 25 Labour MPs (including frontbenchers) have sent to Jeremy Corbyn urging him to agree a deal with Theresa May – and NOT request a second referendum: pic.twitter.com/q6Zr8dClth— Matt Dathan (@matt_dathan) April 4, 2019 By Gráinne Ní Aodha I will do everything to prevent a disorderly Brexit. It doesn’t look like a fourth meaningful vote will be held next week, there simply won’t be time, but that pledge could represent some willingness from the EU to give the UK more time to secure a deal.But if talks between May and Corbyn collapse, as they’re likely to, May has indicated that she will then hold her own set of indicative votes of possible options (remember it was UK backbenchers that were proposing amendments in the last set of votes).May will then choose a proposal for the extension that will be proposed to the European Council summit on Wednesday for 27 EU leaders to consider.The 22 May is a day before EU elections across Europe begin; the 18 April is the final date by which the UK can begin to organise itself in order to take part in the European elections.This phrase has a slightly too-positive undertone to it, but it’s the best answer to the question of what is next: anything can happen.  IN A WEEK’S time, the UK is due to leave the EU without a deal. So where do we stand now, what is due to happen next week, and will the EU grant an extension?Here’s a quick recap: British Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit deal has been rejected by the UK parliament three times, first by 230 votes in January, then by 149 votes in February, and then again by 58 votes in March.The UK parliament then voted on a range of alternatives, drafted by MPs. It failed to reach a majority on eight different options in the first series of indicative votes, and failed to reach a majority on four other options in the second round.When asked this week whether they should hold more indicative votes on Monday, MPs were evenly split – House Speaker John Bercow decided against it. So since the parliament didn’t get far by “taking back control” from the government, May then held a seven-hour Cabinet meeting where phones were confiscated, to discuss with her Ministers what should happen next.After this meeting, she said that she would be seeking another extension to Article 50, which is basically delaying Brexit, and would work with the opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn to secure Labour’s support for her Brexit deal. This statement means she is done trying to shift opinions within her own party, and now is working on getting her deal passed in the House of Commons by any means necessary.May then met Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn on Wednesday for a reported 100 minutes of talks – both sides described the meeting as “cordial” but inconclusive.Speaking on Sky News, DUP Brexit spokesperson Sammy Wilson said that this strategy was dangerous, because if Corbyn were to shift Labour’s position on the Brexit deal, he could weaken his clout with his own MPs and fall short of providing the voting-support that May is asking for.Yesterday, 25 Labour MPs send Jeremy Corbyn a letter urging him to strike a deal with Theresa May and not request a second referendum.  Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article 22 Comments Source: Matt Dathan/Twitter Share22 Tweet Email1 Source: European Commission 🇪🇺/Twitter https://jrnl.ie/4576947 16,021 Views Will the EU grant an extension?EU leaders have become more vocal in how they’ve become fed up of Brexit sucking up all their time, press coverage, and legislative energy.This week, Leo Varadkar met with French President Emmanuel Macron in Paris, and German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Dublin. The aim of this was to secure their support in not giving ground on the backstop in order to secure a Brexit deal.Macron said that France would never let Ireland or the Irish people down, while Merkel said that they would walk every step with Ireland. Source: SIPA USA/PA ImagesMeanwhile, on the continent, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said: “If the United Kingdom is able to approve the withdrawal agreement with a viable majority by 12 April, then the European Union should accept an extension until 22 May. “Delaying for many months in the hope of a second referendum, will simply divide the country further and add uncertainty for business. A second referendum would be exploited by the far right, damage the trust of many core Labour voters and reduce our chances of winning a general election.” On Wednesday, MPs backed a bill which would force the Prime Minister to seek a delay to Brexit to avoid a no deal.Next Wednesday 10 April, the European Council will meet in Brussels to discuss the proposals put forward by the UK government. Theresa May will be asking for an extension, and hoping that the support of Labour, which isn’t secured as of yet, will be enough of a reason for the EU to grant it.If the 27 leaders don’t grant an extension, the UK will leave the EU on 12 April without a deal.No-deal warningsThis week, the Irish government have been ramping up their no-deal preparations, as per the advice from the European Commission earlier this week.

first_imgSrinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik waded into controversy on Sunday by asking terrorists to target corrupt politicians who have “looted the entire wealth” of the state rather than innocent people and security personnel. “These boys who have picked up guns are killing their own people, they are killing PSOs (personal security officer) and SPOs (special police officers). Why are you killing them? Kill those who have looted the wealth of Kashmir. Have you killed any of them?” Malik said, speaking at an event in Kargil.

But Malik also included an appeal to shun violence, saying, “The government of India will never go down before a gun.” The governor has often accused political leaders of Kashmir of corruption and having no representative character because of poor turnout in elections.

Reacting strongly to the statement, former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah attacked the governor. “This man, ostensibly a responsible man occupying a constitutional position, tells militants to kill politicians perceived to be corrupt.

first_imgPepco Holdings and Exelon Corporation filed a petition for reconsideration for their merger with the Public Service Commission of the District of Columbia on Sept. 28.The petition comes after the commission declined to approve the merger of the mid-Atlantic companies in August because the companies did not give a give any compelling reason as to why the merger needed to take place in the D.C. The companies were given 30 days to file an appeal.“We remain convinced our merger offers significant benefits to customers and the District, and we continue working to complete it,” said Chris Crane, president and CEO of Exelon, in a press release. “Since the Public Service Commission explained why it didn’t approve the merger last month, we’ve worked to learn what’s most important to the District – and we are responding.”Without the commission’s approval the entire merger along the East Coast was nullified even though other jurisdictions including Virginia, Maryland ad New Jersey approved it. The merger would have made Exelon the largest power producer in the mid-Atlantic region.“Since the PSC explained why it didn’t approve the merger last month, we’ve worked hard to address the concerns – and we are working to respond in settlement discussions,” Paul Elsberg, corporate communications manager for Exelon told the AFRO in an email, Sept. 29. “In its ruling, the PSC was clear it had a preference for a settlement. We are having productive conversations with the Mayor and the District of Columbia government, as evidenced by their public statements yesterday.”According to a statement from D.C.

first_imgThe holidays get closer every week, and that means plenty of new things to play with and talk about. This week’s Geekout is filled with all kinds of new tech, but it’s really just the calm before the storm.The Geek.com offices have been buzzing since the blue PS4 box graced our desks, and after a little time spent kicking the tires it’s time to admit what we’ve all thought would be the case. The PS4 is a fantastic gaming machine, but there’s not a whole lot there to surprise and amaze. Sony has done a great job educating their target market, and it looks like they are well on their way to delivering exactly what everyone has been asking for: a next generation console focused on delivering high quality gameplay. With the retail launch coming at midnight tonight, scores of happy gamers are finally getting what they’ve asked for.When we took a look at the new iPad Air, it may have seemed slightly critical to call it a large iPad Mini, but now that the new iPad Mini with Retina here it’s clear those thoughts were accurate. Apple has unified their design language and created a tablet that is nice to hold and fun to use, but ultimately overpriced. It’s harder to justify the iPad Mini when you can get the iPad Air for $100 more, or a 2013 Nexus 7 for considerably less. Apple’s tiny tablet was also released with very little fanfare, with no real indication as to why that was.If you’ve not had the time to check out our Nexus 5 review, you can head over to check it out for yourself or listen as we talk a little more about it during the podcast. Simply put, Google and LG have delivered a fantastic smartphone that will get even better once a few software flaws are fixed. When you look at Google’s portfolio of devices, including the unique Moto X and that incredibly well priced Moto X, it’s incredible to see what has been accomplished this past year in the smartphone world.Our app of the week is the incredibly popular Ski Safari. While this game has been available for both iOS and Android for quite a while, the game was recently updated to include Google’s new game sync features for Android, making it an even better addition to your catalog.If you’ve got a topic you’d like us to talk about on our Geekout, or questions for us during a live broadcast, leave us a message here or on the Google+ page.last_img read more


first_imgYou’d have to be pretty heartless to mess with another human’s pacemaker.According to a recent study, implantable medical devices from four major manufacturers contain security weaknesses that open the door to particularly malicious hackers.Medical device security consultancy WhiteScope last week reported a whopping 8,000-plus known vulnerabilities in four different physician programmers from four different manufacturers.Intended for use by trained medical professionals in the operating room or doctor’s office, programmers allow the practitioner to test pacemaker functionality and set parameters over a wireless connection.The “controlled” machines are meant to be returned to the manufacturer after use by a hospital. But WhiteScope managed to find about seven on public auction site eBay, selling for $500 to $3,000.Snagging a handful for research purposes, the company booted directly into the programming software; no login or password needed.“Pacemaker programmers do not authenticate to pacemaker devices,” WhiteScope founder Billy Rios wrote in a blog entry, lamenting the ease with which an attacker can remotely tamper with the technology.The company twice confirmed patient data was stored unencrypted on a programmer; in one instance, analysts discovered decoded names, phone numbers, social security details, and medical data belonging to a “well-known hospital on the east coast.”“Keeping devices fully patched and updated continues to be a challenge,” Rios said. “Despite efforts from the [Food and Drug Administration] to streamline routine cyber security updates, all programmers we examined had outdated software with known vulnerabilities”—more than 8,000, in fact.For a closer look at WhiteScope’s findings, check out the full paper online.Concerned for the “overall confidentiality, integrity and availability” of the pacemaker ecosystem, the company suggests vendors perform an “in-depth and holistic evaluation of implemented security controls.”“By ensuring appropriate security controls are implemented, vendors can help protect against potential system compromises that may have implications to patient care,” WhiteScope said.last_img read more

June 29, 2017 — GE Healthcare has collaborated with Boca Raton Regional Hospital (Boca Raton, Fla.) to bring a more comfortable mammography system, Senographe Pristina to patients with next-generation 3-D digital mammography technology. It is the first installation of Senographe Pristina in the United States.“Senographe Pristina offer patients a reinvented mammography experience, one that had not significantly changed for the last 40 years,” said Kathy Schilling, M.D., medical director at the hospital’s Christine E. Lynn Women’s Health and Wellness Institute. “After having a mammogram on Senographe Pristina, women immediately recognize a pleasant difference: It’s a faster and quieter exam with greater comfort and less pain during compression.”Schilling also noted, “Our goal is for all our baseline patients to have their mammograms with this new technology, with the intent that it will help to dismiss any preconceived fears and encourage more compliance with annual screening.”Senographe Pristina was designed to make the patient experience more comfortable. The gentle, rounded corners of the image detector help reduce patient discomfort under the arms. New, comfortable armrests replace conventional handgrips that may cause tensing of the pectoral muscles, making it hard to properly position the tissue. In addition, the redesigned armrest allows women to gently support their arm during the exam in a relaxed position making the exam more appealing.Improper positioning has been found to be the cause of poor image quality that can then require a rescan, and the lack of proper positioning may decrease mammography sensitivity. By improving patient comfort, the technologists can focus on providing the highest quality exam for the radiologist to interpret.The Women’s Institute at Boca Regional performs over 90,000 screening and diagnostic breast exams a year, with a robust portfolio of breast imaging equipment to address each woman’s unique healthcare needs. The Institute has also put an emphasis on the patient experience by creating a spa-like atmosphere throughout the facility. This is especially noticeable in the mammography suites where the air is infused with a light, calming fragrance, while flat-screen wall monitors display soothing videos and photos, and project relaxing sounds to create a serene environment.GE Healthcare recently received pre-market approval for 3-D technology on Senographe Pristina. This technology, also known as digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT), delivers superior diagnostic accuracy at the same low dose as a 2-D mammography exam, the lowest patient dose of all U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved 3-D mammography systems.For more information: www.gehealthcare.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Related Content News | Breast Imaging | August 02, 2019 Volpara to Distribute Screenpoint Medical’s Transpara AI Solution Volpara Solutions and ScreenPoint Medical BV signed an agreement under which Volpara will sell ScreenPoint’s Transpara… read more Shimadzu FluoroSpeed X1 Walkaround AHRA 2019Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 1:25Loaded: 11.42%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -1:25 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

first_imgDiko’s purge of dissidents continued on Monday as 12 more people were expelled from the party and three announced their resignations.After a disciplinary board session lasting over two hours, the party announced that four were being ousted for refusing to answer to the ‘charges’ brought against them and so were automatically removed from Diko.The ‘charges’ which have so far seen a few dozen party members ousted and resign, relate to the party leader Nicolas Papadopoulos’ loss in the presidential election.The dissidents are accused of not supporting their leader but instead, working for President Nicos Anastasiades’ camp, who eventually bagged a second term in office.Leading the rebellion were former party leader Marios Garoyian and former MP and MEP Antigoni Papadopoulou who openly held meetings against Papadopoulos’ bid, for his stance on the Cyprus problem and have also been ousted.Chryso Argyrou, Evangelia Paraskeva and Michalakis Andreou announced their resignations echoing each other, saying the current leadership had taken Diko far from the values it had been originally founded on.Andreou, who was a founding member of the party involved for over 40 years, said the main reason Papadopoulos had lost in the elections was because he had not involved his party members in the decision making process ‘and they paid you back with the same coin’.He added he was choosing to not participate in Diko’s ‘political suicide’ and that Papadopoulos chose to expel members of the party rather than self reflect on why he lost.Papadopoulos had the support of Edek, the Green Party and Solidarity Movement yet failed to get to the runoff elections.Monday’s dismissals were of Giorgos Hadjigiannis, Michalis Michail, Costas Constantinou, Kyriacos Antoniades, Emilia Poizi, Sotos Sialaros, Antonis Siamailas and Sotiris Lamnisos.The four who refused to answer to their charges and were subsequently removed from the party were Nectaria Charalambous, Costas Kasinos, Marinos Casinos and Evangelia Paraskeva, who had announced her resignation.You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoTotal Battle – Online Strategy GameIf You’re PC User This Strategy Game Is A Must-Have!Total Battle – Online Strategy GameUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
