YEREVAN, MAY 17, ARMENPRESS. Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan thinks that the protesters who block the streets in connection with the trials of the suspects of the attack of the Police Patrol-Sentry service regiment in July 2016 should clearly define whom their actions are directed against. ARMENPRESS reports Pashinyan said “I think it should be clearly defined against whom all those actions are directed. I have clearly stated my position about the necessity to restore public solidarity. The bad thing is that the protesters do not define whom are their actions directed against. There are standard procedures and if someone expects that I have to enter penitentiary institutions and open the doors, it’s not the right approach. There are procedures, bodies and situations. All the issues will be solved”. On May 16 the supporters of the armed group who attacked the Police Patrol-Sentry service regiment in July 2016 blocked Arshakunyats Avenue … [Read more...] about If you expect me to open the doors of penitentiary institutions, it’s not the right approach – PM Pashinyan
Jeremy Corbyn opened the door to a controversial amnesty for illegal immigrants following the Windrush scandal. The Labour leader could back a plan to allow those who sneaked into Britain to stay, his spokesman signalled. Repeatedly asked if Labour would support an amnesty, Mr Corbyn’s spokesman refused to rule one out. “The priority must be to change the culture and change any elements in the existing practice and legislation which have allowed this (Windrush) situation to develop,” he said. “Clearly the approach towards the handling of illegal immigration – and particularly the hostile environment policy – has been at the heart of this injustice and this scandal, and that’s what needs to change.” Boris Johnson reportedly backed an amnesty at this week’s Cabinet meeting. The Foreign Secretary was said to have called for the Government to offer a “broader” amnesty for illegal immigrants. He argued that anyone who has … [Read more...] about Jeremy Corbyn opened the door to a controversial amnesty for illegal immigrants
Carwyn Jones will open the door to a major change in the way the next leader of Welsh Labour is chosen in his speech to the party’s spring conference today. The First Minister will announce a review of how the party’s conducts his elections to make sure “our structures are fair, open and befitting of the mass membership organisation we have become”. Senior figures in Welsh Labour are thought to be divided over whether the party should move to a one member, one vote system for chosing Welsh Labour’s leader and deputy leader. Rhodri Morgan lost out to Alun Michael to become Wales’ then First Secretary in 1999 because of the party’s electoral college system, which gives added weight to the unions and AMs and MPs despite winning more votes from party members. There has been speculation that a similar fate may befall his widow Julie Morgan AM when the result of Welsh Labour’s deputy leadership contest is announced at the conference in … [Read more...] about Carwyn Jones opens the door to ‘one member one vote’ in Welsh Labour
