Document fees waived for new eligible voters

first_img Recommended for you Amendments will mean less time at polls, next TCI General Election Jamaicans Urged To Follow Guidelines In Voting Process Related Items:document fees, dudley lewis, general elections, voters Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 07 Aug 2015 – It was explained months ago by the Elections Commissioner that the cost of documents to get a Belonger Status Card and thus being registered to vote was hurting the registration process. Dudley Lewis, Elections Supervisor, in an interview with Magnetic Media said he hoped something could be done to re-invigorate interest especially among the younger members of the electorate. At that time, the PNP Administration told us they did not see the fee as a deterrent. Well yesterday, that position changed and government is now prepared to wave document fees to spurn on voter registration. It was shared last September that: “…if persons do not register their names cannot be added to the Preliminary List or Register and they will not be able to exercise their Democratic right to vote whenever general elections is called.The next General Election for the TCI is next year in 2016. TCI Elections may be in 2017; Premier flaunts prerogative Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApplast_img read more

After garnering positive reviews from the critics, the Kollywoood movie has made an impressive collection in its opening weekend in its home territory.Comali had managed to create quite a buzz with its well-edited trailer. As a result, the film got a decent opening.

On the first day, it had reportedly grossed Rs 5.39 crore and the positive word-of-mouth helped the flick to perform well at the collection centres in the next three days.In Chennai, Comali has raked in Rs 1.7 crore.The movie is about man, who is in the state of coma for 16 years. In the last two decades, the country has witnessed massive changes in the lifestyles and value system. The Pradeep Ranganathan’s movie, which has Kajal Aggarwal and Samyukta Hegde in the female leads, portrays how the man who went into a prolonged state of unconsciousness before this revolution responds to the present reality. Comali tries to give an important message to the society.With no big releases this week, Comali is expected to do well at the Tamil Nadu box office. Next week, Prabhas’ mega-budget movie Saaho will hit the screens and it is likely to impact on the collections of the movies of all languages across the country.last_img read more

2 killed in Colorado Walmart shooting

first_imgWalmart employees and shoppers leave the scene of a shooting at a Walmart in Thornton. Photo: ReutersAt least two people were killed and one wounded in a shooting inside a Walmart store in suburban Denver on Wednesday, police said.Police in Thornton, Colorado, did not immediately release any information about the circumstances of the shooting or who was responsible for the gunfire.In a Twitter post about 90 minutes after the shooting, police said investigators had confirmed that two men were dead and a woman was taken to a local hospital, but no further details were given.The situation appeared potentially ominous from authorities’ initial reports.“We’ve got multiple parties down, we’re still trying to ascertain what their conditions are,” Officer Victor Avila of the Thornton Police Department told Reuters by telephone not long after police arrived on the scene.About an hour after the initial alert, police said on Twitter that the threat of gunfire had ended at the store, which was surrounded by police and fire crews.“At this time this is NOT an active shooter. Active crime scene. We will update as info becomes available,” the police department said in that tweet. Confirmation of the two fatalities came about 20 minutes later.Thornton is city of about 120,000 people roughly 10 miles (16 km) northeast of downtown Denver.Avila said police were called to the store at about 6:30 p.m. Mountain time (8:30 p.m. ET) and that the gunshots had ceased by the time the first officers arrived at the scene.A Walmart customer, Aaron Stephens, 44, of Thorton, told Reuters he was inside paying for groceries at a self-checkout stand when he heard gunshots and the sound of ricocheting bullets.“The employees started screaming and the customers started screaming” as people began to flee the store, he recounted. “I ran out, too, because I didn’t want to get shot.”Stephens said he did not see where the shooting had come from and did not see anyone struck by bullets.Local NBC television affiliate 9NEWS reported that a woman whose son was in the Walmart had told her that he had heard about 30 gunshots and was still inside.A video posted on Twitter showed the Walmart, which is situated in a large complex of big-box stores and other retail outlets adjacent to US Interstate 25, apparently empty except for police officers with guns drawn.last_img read more

Ranjit informed that her daughter and Surajit got married in February 2006. The torture started after a few years of marriage as her daughter could not give birth to a child. Using this as a reason, Surajit used to torture her mentally and physically. Ranjit also alleged that not only Surajit but his family members also used to torture Antara regularly based on the same allegation. Though Antara used to live at her in laws’ home in Birati, Surajit had recently hired a flat at a housing complex near Haldiram’s bus stop.
