PNC “unaware” of impasse in APNU-AFC talks

first_imgCummingsburg Accord revision…surprise at AFC’s split threatJust one day after the Alliance For Change (AFC) announced that talks regarding the coalition’s prime ministerial candidate have reached a stalemate, the People’s National Congress Reform (PNCR) executive said that it is unaware of an impasse but said that negotiations will continue soon.PNCR Chairperson, Volda LawrenceOn Thursday executives from the AFC said that negotiations were stalled after the parties failed to reach a consensus on the candidacy.However, at the PNCR’s weekly press conference on Friday, Chair of the party, Volda Lawrence claimed that the meetings were halted because the AFC’s representative is not in the country.Lawrence, who has represented the APNU during the current revision of the Cummingsburg Accord was tightlipped about issues discussed between the two coalition partners on aspects of the next elections.The PNCR Chair asserted that they received no word from the AFC which informed that the negotiations have ended.However, she expressed surprise at the AFC for their recent position on the deliberations. She added that the PNCR is hoping for a compromise so that both parties remain in the coalition.President David Granger“The fact that we’re still in negotiations, I’m not allowed to discuss that in public. The negotiations continue…After these talks, we will find compromise. We will come out with an accord that is acceptable on both sides. In terms whether I was surprised at the AFC, yes. Because this is not the only matter that has been parked and remains parked to date. Yes, there was some element of surprise.”While she has shared this position, the AFC has hinted at possibly splitting from the coalition if their choice for the candidacy, Khemraj Ramjattan, is not accepted. Treasurer of the AFC, Dominic Gaskin stated at a press conference on Thursday that their selection of the prime ministerial candidate is their condition for remaining in the coalition ahead of the approaching General and Regional Elections.Leader of the AFC, Khemraj Ramjattan“This was a decision taken by the highest decision-making forum of our party and it is not up for debate so it is almost a prerequisite for us entering into a coalition…We don’t accept that any other entity or any other party shall tell us or dictate to us who we should choose as our prime ministerial candidate,” Gaskin was quoted as saying.He added, “There were a number of reasons given why this matter needed to be deferred, none of which we accept or agree with…It wasn’t very clear with us on what basis they matter kept being deferred.”No evaluationWhen questioned about the performance of Ramjattan in his capacity as Public Security Minister and the reasons why he was not accepted, Lawrence opined, “Let me say that I’ve never done an evaluation of my colleague, Mr Ramjattan”.Both parties have preached their support for coalition politics. But executives of the AFC are open to forming alliances with new parties, other than the APNU.Vice Chair, Cathy Hughes also revealed, “The Alliance For Change is willing to work with anyone committed to the principles of constitutional reform and the creation of a more equitable Guyana where everyone has an equal opportunity.”However, in an interview with news podcast INSIDE Sources, Granger on Thursday said that the AFC is not the only party in the coalition Government. Granger also said during the podcast that he is open to recommendations from other parties within the coalition.“The President is the Chief Executive of the country and I am open to recommendations from all of my parties and it is my duty to give the country the best team of Ministers in order to accomplish the strategic objectives of the coalition,” Granger is quoted by podcast INSIDE Sources as saying.last_img read more

Valley teacher honored by president

first_imgShe said she tries to bring that sense of wonder and curiosity to her students. “I think they pretty much know that almost every day we will do some kind of activity,” she said. “We are making motors run, we are building machines, we are observing animals.” Established by Congress in 1983, the annual Presidential Award recognizes math and science teachers from all 50 states, including the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. territories and U.S. Department of Defense schools. “These teachers exemplify what President Bush’s American Competitiveness Initiative aims to achieve by raising the bar for math and science education for all students, who are America’s future leaders of innovation,” said John H. Marburger III, director of the White House Office of Science and Technology. susan.abram@dailynews.com (818) 713-3664160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

VALLEY GLEN – Science teacher Anne Marie Wotkyns got to experience firsthand the wonder she tries to instill in her students when she met Friday with President George W. Bush after receiving the Presidential Award for Teaching Excellence. The third- and fourth-grade teacher at Monlux Math, Science, Technology Magnet learned late Thursday that she’d been tapped for the honor after spending nearly a week in Washington, D.C., where she’d been invited as one of hundreds of nominees. “I am overwhelmed,” Wotkyns said in a telephone interview from Washington, D.C. “We spent the day at the National Science Foundation. We had a formal dinner at the State Department inside the Ben Franklin Room, then we had a photo session with the president and first lady and we got to go out on the White House balcony.” Wotkyns said she was surprised by how comfortable her hosts made her feel. “They were both very down to earth, almost like people you would meet every day,” Wotkyns said. “(Laura Bush) was absolutely charming and beautiful. The president came in and made a joke and made us laugh.” Wotkyns was one of 93 teachers nationwide who won the award, and one of two from California. Gladys “Tapp” Hancock of Wayside Elementary School in Bakersfield won the math award. Wotkyns, 40, has been a teacher for 15 years, including 13 years at Monlux, where she was praised by Principal Burton Govenar. “She’s an outstanding teacher who has won a number of awards,” Govenar said. “We’re very proud of her. We look forward to her coming back.” Wotkyns’ love of science began when she was a child growing up in Hawaii, where she remembers roaming the shore with her grandfather and searching for marine life in tide pools. last_img read more

Health Net completes comeback

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card “We know that entering 2005, there were many questions about Health Net,” said the company president and chief executive officer, Jay Gellert. “Now, as we look back at 2005, it’s very gratifying to say we believe we answered the questions, erased doubt and positioned the company for future success.” The company offered guidance on that success Wednesday, saying it expects full-year earnings of $2.90 to $3.10, with 10 cents to 12 cents in charges for expensing stock options. While total enrollment slipped 1.3 percent in the fourth quarter and 6.1 percent for the year, and it is expected to continue to slide moderately in the first quarter of 2006, Gellert predicted that the trend would reverse in the latter half of next year. The investment community hardly rallied around the news, with shares trading down $1.04 to close at $48.33 after release of the news. Still, Citigroup analyst Charles Boorady saw some potential in the stock as he evaluated its various operating groups in a note to investors. “While Health Net has been the lowest-rated stock by the Street in our covered universe for more than a year,” he wrote, “we continue to see great value in the California, Medicare and Tricare franchises and believe management will continue on the current path toward better hospital relations, price-driven commercial expansion and strong organic growth in Medicare Advantage.” WOODLAND HILLS – Health Net Inc. rounded out its turnaround year on a positive note Thursday, reporting that its fourth-quarter results reversed a year-ago loss. For the final three months of 2005, the managed-care company earned $76.7 million, 65 cents per share, on sales of $2.95 billion. A year ago, swamped with charges for settlements with medical providers, Health Net lost $85.6 million, 77 cents per share, off revenue of $2.88 billion. For the full year, revenue hit $11.9 billion, up from $11.65 billion in 2004. Net income rose to $229.8 million, $1.99 per share, up from $42.6 million, or 38 cents per share, the prior year. The current results beat Thomson/First Call analysts’ expectations of 64 cents per share, though revenue came in slightly under the predicted $3.04 billion.
