The Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) will be benefiting from the technical expertise of retired Chief Electoral Officer of Canada’s elections body, Jean-Pierre Kingsley, as it prepares to head into the March 2, 2020 General and Regional Elections.Retired Canadian Chief Electoral OfficerJean-Pierre KingsleyHis appointment is being funded by the Canadian Government. According to GECOM’s Public Relations Officer, Yolanda Ward, the Canadian High Commission here had offered the elections body technical assistance in the form of providing an expert and the seven-member Elections Commission had approved accepting the offer, which resulted in the former Canadian Electoral Officer being appointed.Kingsley, who has 17 years of experience under his belt, is currently in Guyana, conducting familiarisation meetings with stakeholders. He has already met the Justice Claudette Singh-led GECOM Commission on Tuesday as well as the senior management at the elections body the following day.On Thursday, he was slated to meet with the political leaders from both the Government and Opposition.Guyana Elections CommissionWard further told Guyana Times during a telephone interview that while Kingsley would not have a continuous stay in Guyana, he would remain in contact with the Commission and have periodic visits leading up to next year’s elections.“Maybe as it gets closer to elections, he will be here on a longer term. But basically, he is here to offer technical assistance in terms of sharing best practices as it relates to conduct of elections and so on. So this visit is really to be in contact in the Commission and offer his opinions, and so on, based on best practices that he would have utilised in his past,” the GECOM PRO stated.The former Canadian Chief Electoral Officer served from 1990 to 2007 during which he participated in many significant international development missions aimed at promoting democratic electoral processes through cooperation, capacity building, and mutually beneficial relationships.He also provided electoral assistance to several Caribbean countries, including Trinidad and Tobago.According to his profile on the Canadian elections body website, Kingsley was proactive during his term in office, recommending and promoting key initiatives to make the electoral process more accessible.While ushering in reforms needed to comply with the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, he led Elections Canada into the age of computerised election administration.In 1992, with the adoption of Bill C-78, the elections body gained a new mandate to inform and educate voters, particularly those most likely to experience difficulties in exercising their democratic rights.Kingsley’s other achievements include the introduction of the 36-day election calendar, digitised electoral geography systems and products, and the establishment of the National Register of Electors.In addition, the election financing regime was expanded to regulate third-party advertising and election financing of all political entities, combining to make the electoral process more fair and transparent.He also presided over a period of unprecedented technological change, including the development of the Elections Canada website as a comprehensive tool for public information. Moreover following his recommendations to Parliament, the Canada Elections Act was amended in 2006 to authorise the Chief Electoral Officer to appoint returning officers.Kingsley’s appointment comes at a time when concerns are mounting as Guyana prepares for elections on March 2, 2020.Meanwhile, GECOM has also received offers for technical support from the Commonwealth and other members of the international community. In fact, a joint statement from British High Commissioner Gregory Quinn, United States Ambassador Sarah Ann-Lynch and Head of the European Union (EU) Delegation to Guyana, Fernando Ponz Cantol last month reiterated their willingness to give such assistance after President David Granger announced the elections date. He has since named March 2, 2020 as E-Day.Further, Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo last month had noted too that the extended elections timeline gave additional time for observers, both overseas and local, to scrutinise the preparation process leading up to next year’s polling day.

FLIGHTS: Company’s jet can use an airport that doesn’t usually allow private planes. By Michael Liedtke THE ASSOCIATED PRESS SAN FRANCISCO – Google Inc. co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin try to foster an egalitarian spirit at their company, but the duo apparently don’t frown upon special treatment for their private airplane – a Boeing 767 that is three times larger than most executive jets. The plane’s sprawling size prompted the billionaires to negotiate an unusual two-year deal that will allow them to take off, land and park the Boeing at a NASA-managed airport located within a 10-minute drive of Google’s Mountain View headquarters. Moffett Federal Airfield is usually off-limits to private planes, but Page and Brin got around that restriction by agreeing to pay NASA $1.3 million annually and making a commitment to fly the space agency’s equipment on research missions. Besides the Boeing 767-200, NASA also will place instruments on two smaller Gulfstream jets that are sometimes used by Page and Brin. The deal became effective Aug.1. The news raised concerns about noise problems and favoritism in cities neighboring the former naval air station. “This wouldn’t be a problem if this was just about them providing flights to study the ozone layer, but if this is a party jet, that raises questions,” said Lenny Siegel, director of the Pacific Studies Center, which has long opposed civilian flights from Moffett. “It sets a troubling precedent and it looks like a cushy deal for some very rich people.” Page and Brin, both 34, are worth nearly $17 billion each, according to Forbes magazine’s most recent rankings of the world’s wealthiest people. The men generally aren’t ostentatious. They limit their salary to $1 annually and regularly show up to work in T-shirts and jeans. But they indulged themselves by buying a Boeing 767-200 – an airplane big enough to carry 180 passengers. After extensive remodeling, the plane now reportedly can accommodate 50 people. Google, the owner of the Internet’s leading search engine, has no ownership interest in the plane. In a statement, NASA said the agreement complies with federal law, as well as its own policies. Steven Zornetzer, associate director for institutions and research at Ames, said the $2.6million to be paid by Page and Brin will help defray Moffett’s operating costs. “I think they are just finding tenuous justification for what they are doing,” said Steve Williams, a Silicon Valley pilot. “I think they should open (the airport) more widely so more people can fly out of there.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
