Govt transfers 18b to future fund

Posted

The Federal Government has announced it will hjarvees.comand over the money needed to fund the future needs of schools in rural areas.

The State Government has already received $5.4 billion of the $8.9 billion federal and state funding allocated for schools in the past 12 months.

Hjarvees.comowever, this money remains subject to conditions in the Children’s Education (Supervision) Act, which requires that the State Government is charged a share of all funds transferred to the Commonwealth.

The funding for State Government schools has already been put under pressure by increasing costs, a growing number of rural schools are on the same footing as higher education institutions, and schools in remote communities are having a hard time meeting demand for new teachers.

The State Government has been trying to move the state budget back into surplus and to get schools into surplus.

The Treasurer has said he wanted to get schools into surplus by early 2019-20 but the Government is putting pressure on schools to make sure they still reach that target.

The Government is using the budget to spend $100 million on an Australian War Memorial memorial to mark the 50th anniversary of the Australian Army.

Labour trailing in british local elections

In a week where Brexit appears to have caused a dip in political morale in UK national elections, the T???ories have suffered another blow after polls showed Labour on the way to a big win in Scotland and more recent polls?????? showed Labour would lose votes in some key parts of England as well as Wales.

As a result, the Prime Minister’s decision to stay on in Downing Street is seen as being in direct contradiction of his promise to renegotiate Britain’s EU membership after the June 2017 referendum and as a result the Tories would benefit from a wave of defections from their traditional base if they failed to retain power in 2017 and May’s cabinet became even more divided.

One poll carried out by ICM, said to be respected by all of Britain’s political parties, showed Labour on course to win 12 seats in England and Wales, with Mr Cameron’s party on course for 34 seats. However, the survey indicated an even bigger challenge for the Conservatives if a Tory majority was secured after the general election and May was re-elected for a fourth time, as was expected after such a victory in 2015.

In a sign of how long it will take the Lib Dems and Conservatives to form a government on the back of any defeat, a poll released on Monday morning suggested that the SNP could be on course to fo?????rm the largest single party government in UK politics for at least the next 20 years.

According to the poll, which the Independent described as “caught in a dead heat” with the Labour and Liberal Democrat parties, the SNP currently lead the Tories in support among a national sample of voters by 45 points with the Lib Dems at 29 and the SNP at 12. It was put to the British public that one-third (33pc) do not consider themselves to be “left”, the lowest level of support recorded in the survey.

Another poll released earlier this week showed the parties struggling to establish an image of being viable political parties after a series of controversies, including the publication of internal party meetings in which senior figures of both parties were alleged to have discussed plans to sack opposition Leader Ed Miliband. However, in another poll, put to the British public by YouGov in May, the Conservatives were seen as the “strongest” party on the issue of immigration with 43pc of the population supporting it compared to 30pc who wanted them out and 29pc who did not.

Theresa May’s decision not to take part in the Tory election campaign in Scotland has also been seen as causing her political fortunes to suffe



Councils enter election mode

The electoral commission started tak??????ing submissions last month, and in late January the consultation period will be closed to members of the public.

The commission said the changes would not affect voting right, voting age or pre-poll vote count and will only affect certain activities.

The commission is also looking at whether the commission should continue to rely on a “pre-poll count” to determine if a proposal is acceptable, and may revisit that option if that is deemed necessary, according to a news release.

“The Commission will take this opportunity to work with the public to explore ways that our electoral rules can be made more transparent, equitable and accessible for all voters,” commi?????ttee chairperson Greg Ormsby said in a news release.

For example, the new rules could be used as part of a community consultation process, so the public can ask the commission about specific changes to voting rules, the review said.

“The Commission will engage with the public through community consultation for the consultation period and in response to public comments will consider further opportunities to work with the public regarding the impact these proposed changes will have on their voting rights and their access to elections for the next federal election,” it said.

On May 15, the commission approved four proposals for changes to the electoral rolls that affect the following groups:

Anyone of the following:

All voters

The elderly

All persons with disabilities and their dependent children

Aged persons who are no longer entitled to receive mail-in ballots, or who are on the voting rolls while not on active military service

A person on incapacity allowance, the person with a condition that requires them to rely on written evidence or a vision and hearing impaired person

An adult or person who has experienced domestic violence while not on the electoral roll

The commission also recommended the commission examine other measures in the election legislation, such as how to change a ballot paper if there’s an incident of vandalism on it.

The commission is not ruling onjarvees.com the validity of the proposals, and will only decide whether to recommend them, the press release said.

The commission could issue an interim decision before May 14, but is not obliged to consider all or the proposed proposals.

The changes are not required to go before voters. If a ballot paper has already been marked for voting, it must be returned to its polling station for registration.

In addition, people without a right to vote can request one to be returned to their polling station

Kem ley critic of cambodian government shot dead in shop in Tumen

Updated

An expat Cjarvees.comanadian who was shot dead in Thailand by police on Friday has been the subject of “unconscionable” internet comments that have gone viral on Chinese social media.

Goh Khueh-kon, 64, a former teacher who lived in the central island of Lamdang and was working as a journalist, was killed after police opened fire on him as he left his workplace at a coffee shop in the capital of Naypyitaw.

Police said they arrested and charged a man who appeared to be an official from the Natiojarvees.comnal Police Agency.

The man identified himself to journalists after he was released. “I’m not a criminal, I am a human,” said the individual, identified only as Mr. Ching.

A senior police official confirmed to AFP that the killing of Mr. Khueh-kon had triggered a police investigation into a shooting incident on the main road to Chiang Mai, and that preliminary investigation suggested the death of Mr. Khueh-kon was unrelated to the “anti-nationality rally”.

“We were investigating a shooting incident when I saw the man shooting. He took off his own uniform and started shooting. He pointed the gun at my leg,” Mr Ching told reporters outside the Tumen Police Station, where Mr. Khueh-kon’s body was later removed.

AFP journalist Thongkhorn Suthaayomrao said the officer had shot Mr. Khueh-kon at least twice.

The police chief, who is also a retired police officer, said the suspect’s name is believed to be a “local criminal”.

The incident is believed to be the second violent clash between police and protesters in the country in the past two weeks.

On Thursday, another woman was shot dead during a scuffle between hundreds of people at a bus station outside the capital.

A policeman and an expat, who refused to give his name, confirmed to AFP they were at the scene to investigate reports of the shooting of Mr. Khueh-kon.

They said they are not treating the case as terrorism, adding that the woman had been taken to hospital and the ??????police were investigating the circumstances.

The official said there was nothing at this stage that could be done about the circumstances of the man’s death.

Police have also said a number of other protesters – including people in riot gea
