Cabinet meeting provides first post-election test for embattled UK PM

LONDON: British Prime Minister Theresa May is expected to hold her first meeting on Saturday during the signing of an early test of her hopes of forming a stable government after a defeat in crushing elections.
Faced with the demand to quit smoking after failing on Thursday’s May election Friday scheduled a meeting later this week its government circle in an apparent attempt to reaffirm the authority and stability of the bill.
But the storm of criticism continued unabated in early May, after announcing that it will keep unchanged the ministerial team and plans to remain in power with the help of a small party from Northern Ireland.
Media commentators have agreed that she had been seriously damaged, and some predicted that she and her strategy for Brexit might have trouble surviving.
“You can fight to stay MP,” the Daily Telegraph said. “Conservatives turn on Teresa,” the pro-conservative daily said. The Times wrote: “You can look into the abyss.” The Sun newspaper said succinctly: “He’s had his chips.”
Mayo was Interior Minister for six years before launching into the political chaos that occurred during Brexit referendum last June.
She undertook to open the way to infinity to Britain of the European Union, resolved a complex economic and institutional relationship that has been developed for more than 44 years.
After inheriting an absolute majority of 17 seats in the House of Commons announced in early elections early three years in advance, saying that he needed a stronger hand in Brexit RAM.
This movement, by the daughter of a vicar who defines himself as pragmatic and against risk, surprised the country.
In the first place was expected of the expected to a landslide.
But the cracks in his campaign to control performance began to show and have expanded with bad tactical failure that he did in health care for the elderly.
These vulnerabilities have been skillfully exploited by the boss of the play, Jeremy Corbyn, a veteran activist base who has hammered May cold and indifferent.
On the day of the survey was launched Thursday in May, leaving its eight seats in the 326 seat limit for an absolute majority.
Forced into the minority government in May it brings the Irish Democratic Union Party Ireland (DUP), which won 10 seats in the hope of forging a majority.
However, any agreement between the two parties has yet to be announced, and details of how they can cooperate being incomplete.
“It’s too early to say what we’re going to do again. I think we need to see the final makeup of Parliament and we’ll think about it,” said DUP boss Arlene Foster, Ulster Radio on Friday.
“I think there will certainly be contacts over the weekend, but I think it’s too early to talk about what we’re going to do.”
The DUP is rooted in a harsh form of Protestantism that opposes the reunification of Ulster with the predominantly Catholic Republic of Ireland.
It is socially conservative, including opposition to gay marriage and supports Brexit but opposes the return of a “hard” border between the Republic of Ireland and the British province.
The Irish interior border should be one of the dozens of thorny issues in the Brexit negotiations.

Haryana village presses for name change: Trump gave us identity

Haryana village presses for name change: Trump gave us identity

The village of Marora in the district of Haryana Mewat had dropped the card, say its inhabitants. A search on Google Maps showed another town, also called Marora near Hodal, in the same district, about 30 miles away.

But the village has had a new identity last month when it was renamed “Trump Village” – was honored friendship between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and US President Donald Trump – at a function hosted by international Sulabh on June 18

A new sign was installed outside the village. “Welcome to Trump Village,” he said.

The change, however, was brief. Ten days later, the district administration has removed the new signal, indicating that the rules for changing the name of a town had not been followed.

“Permission was not requested before the name was changed. According to the rule book, this can not be done,” said Mani Ram Sharma, Deputy Commissioner, Noah. But the 140 families living in the village – mainly farmers and workers – want to keep the new name.

They say that they have been given a “new identity”, “recognition” and a hope of “development”. And the toilet.

Mukesh lumberdar, a farmer, says the government declared the village “free outdoor defecation” in 2016. “No government visited the village and conducted a survey before declaring that it was free from defecation. Fields to alleviate, “he said.

But that changed with the name change. As announced to the function of June 18 toilets Sulabh has launched a construction project in the village and a competition center for women. “We now have toilets,” says lumberdar.

“No one knew our village. When we were told that Marora, everyone thought it was another village near Hodal,” said Mohammad Irshad, a 19-year-old student.
For now, the town has returned to its former name.

The new signal has been stored. Another sign was painted blue, but left empty. Sulabh International has written to Prime Minister Manohar Lal Khattar, asking him to allow the name change.

“We do not change the name, simply by giving it a nickname. This will attract government and private entities in the village and it will evolve,” said Bindeshwar Pathak, founder of Sulabh.

“I did not know the rule (to change the name of a village). But if the collector says, it has to be well … Every house has toilets now, so we are happy,” said Shaukat Ali, the village Pradhan.

Villagers now have new development goals. “I hope we will start providing a steady supply of electricity. In 24 hours, we only have eight hours of supply,” says lumberdar.

“Trump Village Gaon Ka Naam Hai Toh banjata Shayad Google Maps mein BHI Naam aajata (If the village happened to be called Trump Village, maybe we will appear on Google Maps too),” said Irshad. Meanwhile, Abdul Hai, a class 10 student, is ready to do his homework.

“Donald Trump is the President of the United States, named after his wife Melania Trump,” said a group of seniors.

“I learned last month after the name of the village was changed, so that if someone asked me, I would be willing to explain the origin of the name,” he said.

If private bodies can have data, why not State: SC

If private bodies can have data, why not State: SC

A court of the Supreme Court of nine judges heard the second day of arguments Thursday to determine whether the right to privacy is a fundamental right in the Constitution, has been investigated why citizens were sick in the exchange of personal information comfortable with The state when they had no problem with private agents.

“When someone uses an iPhone or iPad with a fingerprint logon, personal data are already in the public domain … Is there something qualitatively different when the state did the same (looking for personal information)” Justice DY Chandrachud , One of the judges in the bank headed by the chairman of the Supreme Court of India JS Khehar, asked the chief advisor Sajan Poovayya that appeared by the petitioners.

Poovayya replied that the problem does not refer to the exchange of information, the lack of controls and restrictions to ensure the security of the data.

“The state can not be entrusted to the data of citizens without proper supervision. Declaring the right to privacy is a fundamental right the first step to supervision,” he said.

It also refers to a taxi service-based application providers such as Uber, collecting information about the user, and said he was monitoring. This led the court to consider whether privacy would be violated if the state monitored a terrorist suspect and used the data for security purposes.

“If the state is followed in the process of apprehending a person who may be involved in terrorism, then the state may use this data,” the bank asked. Poovayya replied that the state could do “but there may be limits of the law”.

The bank then said: “At what point can we apply this rule, data collection or use? Because if we say by collecting data, even the state can collect data after a terrorist act.

Poovayya said there is a fear that the data collected by the state are put into private hands and are abusive. He said it could also be misused by governments when regimes change.

“The question is whether the delivery of private data rights to privacy. The delivery of information for some is not the delivery of information to all.

So if I get biometrics for the state, it should be used only for the purpose for which I have given, “he said, adding that this can be ensured that by providing that privacy is a fundamental right.

He said that it is not necessary to adjust the contours of the law from now on, and to evolve from one case to another.

Judge J Chelameswar, one of the judges at the bank, said it would be best if, if not all, to outline the right to privacy if the court decides that it is a fundamental right.

If the state is unable to protect the data, it should also stop charging said Poovayya and referred to the British example of the destruction of biometric data collected by the agencies.

The issue of privacy protection was raised in the hearing of petitions that questioned the constitutional validity of Aadhaar scheme.

Tuesday, referring to two previous decisions – by a panel of eight judges in 1954 and MP Sharma case by a bank of judges in six Kharak Singh in 1962 – the government said that the highest court ruled is important in these there is no right To privacy in the Constitution.
The nine-judge jury was established to examine the accuracy of these judgments.

Other judges at the bank are judges S K Kaul, R K Agarwal, S A Bobde, R F Nariman, S Abdul Nazeer and A M Sapre.

Early in the day, Judge Kaul was whether the right to privacy was available even against individuals, so that it would violate the freedom of others.

Kovind, who will take office as president on July 25, defeated opposition candidate, former House Speaker Meira Kumar, in a one-sided contest bringing nearly 66% of the votes.

BJP managers felt that Kovind received approximately 115 additional AML votes beyond the NDA kitten in the United States.

BJP has managed to attract votes from the opposition camp in four states and the Parliament. BJP leaders said they had won 10 surplus votes in Bengal, even as Trinamool Congress and Congress have exchanged demands for cross-ballot polls by the other.

In the Parliament there were 21 null votes. It was not possible to determine exactly which side contributed the most to the account. The opposition could have waited to obtain the votes of 240 deputies, but obtained the support of 225 deputies. Kovind got the support of 522 deputies.

The electoral college to elect the president is composed of elected deputies and parliamentarians from all states and two union territories, Delhi and Pondicherry.

Theresa May says will form new govt that will lead Britain through Brexit talks

British Prime Minister Theresa May will form a government supported by a conservative small party Northern Ireland after its party lost its parliamentary majority in an electoral debacle before negotiations over the departure of British England will begin.

A stone-faced May, speaking at the door of his official residence on Downing Street said that the government would provide certainty and would lead Great Britain in talks with the European Union to achieve a fruitful Brexit agreement.

May said he could count on Parliament with the support of his “friends” in the Democratic Union Party in Northern Ireland after his conservative government have not emerged as clear winners.

He hoped for a landslide victory, May had called for immediate elections to strengthen his hand in European Union divorce talks. But on one of the most glorious nights of British electoral history, a Party of Labor resurgence denied him an absolute victory, throwing the country into political chaos. Leaders expressed fears that the loss may affect Brexit’s majority delaying negotiations, as of June 19 and thus increases the risk of failure of negotiations.

His rival union Jeremy Corbyn, once destroyed by his opponents as a non-hopper, said May should resign and wanted to form a minority government.

But from May, he faces a scorn for running a poor campaign, was determined to hold on. Shortly after noon, she has traveled the short distance to Downing Street to Buckingham Palace to ask the Queen Elizabeth permission to form a government – a formality under the British system.

With 649 out of 650 declared seats, the Conservatives won 318 seats and 261 workers, followed by the Scottish National Party in favor of independence 34.

The shock result pushed the right and central DUP Northern Ireland to the role of kings maker, with its 10 seats enough to give the Conservatives a fragile but feasible alliance.

“Our two sides have had a close relationship for many years and give me confidence to believe we will be able to work together in the interest of the UK as a whole,” May said.

This will likely imply a provision in which the DUP would support a conservative minority government on key voting in parliament, but would not form a formal coalition.

However, with the complex debates about the EU’s divorce will begin in 10 days, we do not know exactly what its direction will be and if the so-called “hard Brexit” taking Great Britain out of the single market could still be prosecuted.

After winning his seat in North London, Corbyn said the May attempt to win a broader term had failed.

“The mandate is that they lost conservative seats, lose votes, lose support and loss of confidence,” he said. “I would have thought it was enough for all, in fact, and give way to a government that is truly representative of all the people of this country.”

“We need a government that can act,” said EU Budget Commissioner Guenther Oettinger, the German Deutschlandfunk radio station. “With a weak trading partner, there is a risk that the negotiations (Brexit) go wrong for both parties.”

The EU’s chief negotiator said the block’s position at Brexit and the timing of the talks were clear, but divorce negotiations should begin when Britain is ready. “Let’s get closer to an agreement,” said Michel Barnier.

Gulf crisis: Qatar slams Saudi Arabia, allies’ terrorism list as ‘baseless’

Qatar rejected a blacklist of terrorism published by Saudi Arabia and its allies that linked people and organizations in Doha to support militant Islamist groups on Friday.

The emirate responded just hours after Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Bahrain have published a list of 59 individuals and entities linked to “terrorism.”

“The recent joint statement issued by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates on a” terrorist financing watch list “reinforces baseless allegations, since they have no basis in reality” said The government of Qatar in a statement.

Qatar is not compatible with terrorist groups, he says, noting that “our position on the fight against terrorism is stronger than many signatories of the joint statement – a fact that has been conveniently ignored by the perpetrators.” Included in the list were Doha spiritual leader Yusuf al-Qaradawi and charities funded by Qatar.

The list and response, in addition to diplomatic and political tensions in the Gulf that have erupted since Saudi Arabia and its allies have broken relations with Qatar over its alleged support for extremism.

Qatar twenty-one denied the allegations and Thursday’s foreign minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani said his country “did not surrender.”

In order to strengthen the support of his country, the crisis shows no signs of decline, the Minister made a surprise visit Friday to Germany, where he has pledged to break the deadlock.

The measures taken by Saudi Arabia and its allies were “a flagrant violation of international law and would not result in a positive impact on the region but would have a negative impact,” he said, also putting the focus on the blacklist of terrorism.

“There is a steady escalation of these countries … but our strategic options remain diplomacy and dialogue,” said Sheikh Mohammed, after discussions with German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel.

“There are constant efforts by friendly countries to contain the crisis and lift the unjust blockade in Qatar and start negotiations,” said the Qatari minister, who was traveling to Moscow on Saturday to meet with his Russian counterpart, Sergei has Lavrov.Kuwait took The mediating role in the crisis, and French President Emmanuel Macron has also affected Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Iran in order to launch the talks.

Russian President Vladimir Putin also spoke with the emir of Qatar during the crisis.

Gabriel stressed that “it’s time for diplomacy” as he vowed to “do everything with our European friends, to ensure that this conflict does not grow.”

James Comey testimony:The G-Men Take On the Don

There was an audible gasp in the courtroom in charge of the US Senate Intelligence Committee when former FBI Director James Comey accused President Donald Trump of saying “lies, plans and simple.” The agent of the principal law authority of the country had called Run a primary provider of false values. And he said more than once. The question of Russia’s interference in the last US presidential election. Is now almost a moot point. With Comey’s testimony, Washington now descends into a battle for the future of Trump’s presidency. The fight will take place on several levels.

One of them is politics. Comey can say what he wants against Trump, but ultimately, only the US Congress decides the legal destiny of a practicing US president. In a legislature dominated by members of the Republican Party of Trump, members of Congress act only when the weight of public opinion is largely against them. Comey’s testimony is damaging, but not enough to destroy 30% of the voters who remain at the head of Trump. In ABC / Washington Post polls ahead of testimony, 71% of Republicans said the president had the right to fire the FBI director. But this poll, another Senate investigation and a criminal investigation of a former FBI student, special adviser to Bob Mueller, has just begun and may take months or even years to complete. By-pass sources say that the results of next year’s midterm elections will be the real determinant of whether Congress decides to contemplate the word “I”: the indictment.

No Republican senator was willing to question Comey’s credibility or integrity. Many seem to have their comments at face value. Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan seemed to admit that Trump lied was limited to saying, “The president is new to this. He is new to the government.” The Republican National Committee was more supportive, calling the Comey statement “a Last minute attempt “to” save face “.

Another level is legal. The last US presidents who have been the subject of an indictment, ie Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton were less disturbed by the initial criminal charges for a lesser concealment charge. Nixon was nailed to a “obstruction to justice” claim. Clinton for perjury. There had been an expectation that Comey accuses Trump, after describing how the president was trying to block his Russian investigation of obstruction. Comey said this would happen, gave a minimal interpretation, but said that left the criminal legal part of it to Special Adviser Mueller. “I do not think it’s for me to say if the conversation I had with the president was an effort to interfere,” he said. Comey sees his investigations testimony and the Senate as preliminary to Mueller’s investigation. Their job was to put forward evidence that point people so vows that they can be called to testify on their behalf, and then let the law be passed. As explains, “West Wing Mueller feared more of Comey.” Trump’s lawyer Marc Kasowitz publicly denied pieces of Comey testimony, including the former FBI director Trump’s claim, “I need loyalty, I expect loyalty.” This will fill out the story directly against Trump Comey If the President is required to speak under oath and is judged that the Comey version is correct, Trump is guilty of perjury -. A crime that can be brought by an accusation. In fact, Comey asked several “perjury trap.” The Twitter account of the United States president was silent during the statement, but statements like Kasowitz may again pursue him.
