In keeping with the new detente between Sinn Fein and the Royal Family, the party had two representatives at the funeral at Westminster Abbey.

Only one, Prime Minister-in-waiting Michelle O’Neill, was officially there to represent the party, with Alex Maskey present as Speaker of the Assembly – a politically neutral role he did not expect to last as long, having retired. as an MP in the May election, but remaining in office because the DUP blocked the appointment of a new president.

Nevertheless, the presence of the Republican veteran, interned by the armed forces of the late Her Majesty in a prison where he was detained at Her Majesty’s pleasure, would have been unthinkable until a few years ago.

King Charles III, Queen Consort, Princess Royal, Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence, Duke of York, Earl of Wessex, Countess of Wessex, Prince of Wales, Princess of Wales, Prince George , Princess Charlotte, the Duke of Sussex, Duchess of Sussex, Peter Phillips and the Earl of Snowdon follow behind the coffin of Queen Elizabeth II, draped in the Royal Standard with the Imperial State Crown and the orb and the Sovereign’s Scepter, as seen from Westminster Abbey. after his state funeral. Picture date: Monday September 19, 2022.

The service order incorrectly referred to the ‘Deputy First Minister of Northern Ireland’, even though there has been no Deputy First Minister since the DUP collapsed at Stormont in February.

Alongside the two Republicans was a less surprising cast of senior Northern Ireland politicians. Alliance leader Naomi Long, who had visited the Queen in state last week, was there with SDLP leader Colum Eastwood – whose party has previously come under attack from Sinn Fein for attending such events.

Mr Eastwood said yesterday: ‘The Queen has been pushing hard for our peace process. It is important that we do the same to show respect to her and to all those for whom she held a special place in their hearts.

The two union representatives – DUP leader Sir Jeffrey Donaldson and UUP leader Doug Beattie – have much closer ties to the Queen. As Privy Councillor, Sir Jeffrey was part of the body of senior politicians and others who formally advise the Queen and in this capacity was present at the Council of Accession at which King Charles was sworn in .

Mr. Beattie was awarded the Military Cross, one of the highest honors for gallantry, for his conduct in combat in Afghanistan during the Queen’s reign.

The six Northern Ireland politicians sat together in a prominent section of the Abbey, just behind the SNP’s Nicola Sturgeon, Lib Dem leader Sir Ed Davey and Labor leader Sir Keir Starmer.

The Republic was represented by Irish President Michael D Higgins and his wife, and Taoiseach Micheal Martin, who both attended the memorial service in St Anne’s Cathedral in Belfast last week.

Among the other Northern Irish guests at the funeral were the Grand Secretary of the Orange Order, the Reverend Mervyn Gibson and Patricia Donnelly, who led the Covid vaccination programme.

There were also four clergymen from Northern Ireland – Catholic Primate Eamon Martin, Church of Ireland Primate John McDowell, Presbyterian Moderator Reverend John Kirkpatrick and Methodist President Reverend David Nixon, although None of them participated in the service.

However, one of the clerics listed on the order of service as being present was not seated with the other church leaders.

It was unclear whether the Reverend Ian Brown, chief minister of the Martyrs Memorial Free Presbyterian Church, founded by the late DUP leader Ian Paisley, had come to the service as planned.

Irishman Fergal Keane, one of the BBC’s most respected foreign correspondents, commented on the service, stressing for viewers the importance of the Queen’s role in reconciliation, “particularly in Northern Ireland, where her presence, his influence contributed to a negotiated peace”. .

He reminded viewers that the Queen had attended the Abbey for her wedding in 1947, her coronation in 1953 and for royal weddings and funerals, “all, as with her own funeral today, being part of recurring seasons of death and renewal”.

Mahesh Chander Sudan
We the people of Jammu and Kashmir have once again been exposed to a staged political explosion to pierce the fragile glass-covered political spectrum of the Union Territory and gain a substantive position by Ghulam Nabi Azad, a congressional veteran who coordinated his loyalists and laid the groundwork for the launch of a new political entity. The rally was apparently organized to show strength and impact the political regime of Jammu and Kashmir mainly by weakening the Congress and garnering public support for its future endeavor. The attendance of about 70 defected Congress leaders and the public support on the ground noticed in the rally in Jammu must be seen in various connotations. As reported by local media in recent days and also spread by word of mouth by its supporters, the rally was organized to launch a new political party and not just a rally to justify its resignation from the Indian National Congress. However, the political explosion staged by a leader of his stature would certainly affect the political landscape of the Union Territory both in terms of the distribution of mandates and the formation of the future government.
As a citizen of independent India, he has the right to advance politically either by forming his own political party or by remaining in the arrangement existing at this stage of his career, but all political leaders who intend to remain in public life are accountable to their supporters. , supporters and the general public. He deserves to be honored for his new endeavor at a time when his fellow citizens of the Union Territory find themselves powerless to exercise their democratic rights for one reason or another. It is also an established fact that he has been in politics for almost five decades and that he holds an important position among his contemporaries and that he would have carefully studied every step of his moves, be it timing, collateral support , ideological relevance, public urge to embrace change, and a few other important ingredients that would guide her sailing course. A leader of his seniority who crossed the hierarchical pedestal and occupied important places throughout his political career, especially while being in the same party, earned him the credit and admiration of the public. He, however, decided to remain in central politics, but continued to maintain close contact with the political configuration of his home state. It is also an undeniable fact that he could hardly manage to win elections in J&K except for CM J&K’s tenure from 2005 to 2008 under the Congress coalition government arrangement with the PDP. Most of his tenure as a parliamentarian remained confined to Rajya Sabha (Upper House) except for one when he managed to win the Lok Sabha seat in Washim (Maharashtra) as a candidate sponsored by Congress and this no doubt speaks to his ability to maintain close confidential contact with the Gandhi family which had also enabled him to serve as Secretary General in charge of most of the states. Despite a moderate performance in electoral politics, he was able to maneuver positively to secure a ministerial position as Minister of Health and Family Welfare with Dr. Manmohan Singh during UPA-I.
I’m sure his detractors will also admit his ability to remain calm, confident, cheerful and a soft-spoken person who can extract positivity from any situation and all those soft skills he’s honed make you think about the current scenario which emerged at the end of his tenure as a member of Rajya Sabha which was quite hectic and well orchestrated. His decision to step down as a senior member of Congress and return to state politics as a true ‘AZAD’ caught the attention of people across the spectrum of multi-polarized society in Jammu and Kashmir. This infers that his decision to return to state politics from the height of his political career is likely engineered and guided by other stakeholders and not simply forced. All of these assumptions/presumptions would find an answer in the future, as politics is full of uncertainties anyway.
The former J&K state has been through many ups and downs since 2018, when the PDP + BJP coalition government failed to pave the way for the imposition of governor’s rule which continues to this day. Withdrawal of Sections 370 and 35A, reorganization of the former state into two UTs have upended the policy of J&K unlike any other part of the Indian Union. In the given scenario which ultimately denied the democratic rights of the people of Jammu and Kashmir to elect their own government, it created a deep-rooted political vacuum and instilled a sense of helplessness among the local residents due to multiple reasons. The highest unemployment rate on record, endemic corruption in public offices, recruitments and other public utilities like electricity, water etc., apparently due to insufficient and inefficient administration under LG and its limited team of advisors, need not be elaborated further. At this critical juncture, the dramatic entry of Azad Sahib, as he is popularly known, could hopefully save the commoners and to some extent realign the political landscape of UT provided he is not pre-designed and guided to a pre-fixed program.
Among others, the delay in launching the political party as pointed out by Mr. Azad during a public rally would prove not only unhealthy but also against the call of the hour. People from all walks of life are of the view that this seething political outburst of the Azad factor may not last long and that any delay in holding elections beyond six months would change the scenario. Right now, he is considered a powerful leader to hold the key, but the passage of time may leave him only as a contender. His track record in electoral politics, particularly at J&K, as noted earlier, may not adequately support the claims of his supporters and other stakeholders. Sailing for him is bad weather and full of challenges that would test his ability to stay the course as expected by UT’s poor. However, the future holds the key and it is expected that his entry into state politics can help broaden UT’s political spectrum for the greater welfare of JKUT residents who aspire to regain statehood and form popular government through established constitutional arrangements and in most democracies. way.
Jai Hind, Jai Bharat.

Convergence Dialogue on Reimagining Care for Older Adults produces concrete solutions to improve the quality of life of America’s older adults through more comprehensive care and a greater range of options.

WASHINGTON, September 7, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — In a new report, Convergence Center for Policy Resolution published the recommendations of its Convergence dialogue on reinventing care for the elderly. The report offers consensus solutions produced by leaders and experts who participated from all political backgrounds in a multi-stage meeting. These unlikely allies are proposing changes to America’s health care systems that reflect the unique needs and realities of aging adults today and tomorrow.

“Everyone deserves to age in safety and dignity, but our current systems of care are woefully inadequate to meet the contemporary realities of this stage of life,” said Convergence CEO. David Eisner. “With these recommendations, leaders have created a concrete path toward achieving a system of care that works for America’s older adults.”

Recommendations from the report’s findings focus on three main areas for improvement:

  • Care parameters: Create a constellation of care settings with adaptable and viable business models, so that preferred options are available as people age.
  • Caregivers: Ensure that there are enough qualified direct and family caregivers to provide the necessary care and support.
  • Funding: Adequately fund the care system, with payment systems and other features aligned with the reality of aging.

“The recommendations in this report are not just a concrete plan to improve the lives of older people,” said Stuart M. ButlerSenior Fellow at the Brookings Institution and member of the Convergence dialogue on reinventing care for the elderly crew. “They are also the result of genuine collaboration between people who have come to this process with widely divergent interests and indicate which ideas for reform can garner broad support.”

Convergence served as a neutral third-party convener for the Convergence dialogue on reinventing care for the elderly project – the last of his flagship dialogues. Convergence dialogs are inclusive and collaborative processes, informed by social science, in which diverse groups of leaders come together to find common ground, build trust, develop consensual solutions and move forward in unlikely alliances to achieve constructive change on insoluble questions. Convergence’s proven methodology includes five phases: selecting a mature and acceptable issue, convening a diverse table of divided leaders and stakeholders, facilitating the establishment of trust across divisions, generating consensus recommendations and implementation on the ground, with the goal of societal impact inspiring collaboration on conflict.

Moqtada Al-Sadr’s retirement from political life shook the Iraqi political spectrum, but his call for supporters to end their protest raised hopes of a de-escalation between the Sadrists and the Coordination Framework.

  • How Al-Sadr’s departure from politics affects Iraq’s political spectrum

Following the announcement by the powerful Iraqi cleric Moqtada Al-Sadr to leave politics on August 29, his supporters stormed the presidential palace in the green zone, which then turned into clashes that rocked Baghdad for two days, killing 30 people and injuring more than 700 others, according to Iraqi medical sources on August 30.

Ruba Ali Al-Hassani, an Iraqi-Canadian and postdoctoral research associate at Lancaster University and the SEPAD project – an acronym for “Sectarianism, Proxies and De-sectarianization” – said the resignation of Moqtada Al-Sadr of political life is “performative”.

“It was his way of trying to wash his hands of the blame for what was going to happen next,” Al-Hassani said. Al Mayadein English in an interview. “His followers would not raise arms in battle without his consent or his orders.”

The clashes that rocked Baghdad came to a halt at noon on August 30 after Sadr made a speech at a press conference in which he apologized for the violence and told his supporters to leave the area green.

“The party is disciplined and obedient, and I wash my hands of those who do not withdraw from the parliament building within 60 minutes,” Sadr said in a televised speech broadcast by several outlets, including Al Mayadeen.

When asked if Al-Sadr’s call for an end to clashes was late, Al-Hassani replied “of course it was late, but it was also calculated and destined to arrive late. , to show his counterparts what he and his supporters are capable of”.

Al Sadr also thanked in his speech “the security forces who have adopted a neutral position with all parties”, and added that the Popular Mobilization Unit (PMF) which has integrated into the Iraqi security forces has nothing to do with what is happening.

‘Impunity’

Sadr’s decision to quit politics came after he reached a political stalemate with his rivals, a move that prompted his supporters to storm the presidential palace in the Green Zone, leading the military to quickly order a cover -fire on August 29.

When asked why Sadr did not call on his supporters to leave the Green Zone before his resignation to avoid violence, Al-Hassani replied “because his goal was for them [Sadrists] storming the parliament, like they did weeks ago, storming the Superior Council of the Judiciary, which they did last week, storming the republican palace, like they did it today [August 30].”

“It’s a scheme, and it’s not new. Its supporters have already stormed parliament several times,” Al-Hassani said. Al Mayadein English.

Sadr supporters stormed parliament in late July to prevent the Coordinating Framework from forming a new cabinet after the Sadrist bloc’s mass resignation from parliament in June.

“They enjoy a level of impunity that no one else has. The government dares not challenge them, because [caretaker Prime Minister Mustafa] Al-Kadhimi is a Sadrist ally, as he has repeatedly shown over the past two years,” she explained.

According France 24“Sadr says he simply wants a new election. The coordination cadre says he wants a government formed first – and then elections held, with conditions.”

The repercussions of resignation

Clashes between groups in Baghdad’s Green Zone and elsewhere prompted Iran to close its air and land borders with Iraq on August 29 before reopening them after Sadr’s speech. The United Arab Emirates has also suspended flights to and from Baghdad for security reasons.

“Sadr frequently uses his resignation as leverage on his counterparts to position himself and remind them that they cannot function politically without him,” Al-Hassani said. Al Mayadein English. “He has a large following and he has an unpredictable nature that puts his counterparts at a disadvantage.”

“If they can’t predict his next move, they can’t act on it. This time, however, his counterparts predicted that he would act impulsively, especially in response to Al-Haeri’s resignation, which came at a curious time. He also appears to have lost leverage after declaring at his press conference that “the killer and the slain will go to hell”, thus angering some of his own supporters. Perhaps the inevitable moment when Al-Sadr shot himself in the foot,” Al-Hassani said.

“Remember that he is just as guilty as all the other parties of corruption and violence. Reform should start within his party,” Al-Hassani explained.

However, after Sadr’s speech, his supporters began to leave the Green Zone immediately in response to his call, and the nationwide curfew that came into effect on August 29 was lifted by the government, raising hopes that he there could be an end to the violence.

“He [Al-Sadr] continues to be their leader, and his press conference today and the subsequent withdrawal of the Sadrists from the Green Zone is a prime example of this,” Al-Hassani said. “There is no Sadrist movement without Al-Sadr.

Iraq Guardian Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi and the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI) welcomed Al-Sadr’s call on protesters to end protests in the Green Zone.

Al-Kadhimi also hailed Al-Sadr as a patriot for calling for an end to the bloodshed and said in a tweet this call imposed on all Iraqis a “moral duty” to engage in dialogue.

“The reason for this crisis”

Following the withdrawal of the Sadrists from the green zone, the coordination cadre called on its supporters to end their protests and leave Baghdad’s green zone.

“Return home safely and be fully prepared to answer the call of the nation,” Framework said in a message to supporters who began an “indefinite sit-in” on Aug. 12 in the Green Zone demanding the formation of a new government as soon as possible. as possible.

“The coordination cadre has the ability to form a government, remove the Sadrist movement from all its positions and not allow it to interfere in state affairs,” said Ghalib Aldaamy, a media professor at the Ahlul-Bayt University.

The Sadrists began an open demonstration first inside and then outside parliament to prevent the cadre from forming a government and demanding the dissolution of parliament and the holding of new elections.

“I don’t think the cadre is at all with the dissolution of parliament, and the reason for this crisis is the cadre’s reluctance to dissolve parliament,” Aldaamy said. Al Mayadein English.

Iraqi President Barham Salih said later on August 30that “the holding of new early elections according to a national agreement represents a way out of the suffocating crisis instead of bickering politically or confronting and fighting”.

“A Pressure Card”

“I don’t think Al-Sadr is seriously considering retiring from political life, because he made such a decision more than once and always returned to politics under the pretext of defending,” the Iraqi journalist said. Ahmad Adel. Al Mayadein English. “This withdrawal is nothing but a pressure card.”

Adel said that the politics of the Sadrist movement is “a unipolar politics, that it is linked to the person of Al-Sadr, and no one can take his place in managing the political work of the Sadrist movement”.

Adel pointed out that during the process of negotiating electoral alliances, Sadr changed committees more than once, but in the end, he is the one who makes the political decision through a tweet or a word away. of these committees.

The journalist believes that “the first person responsible for the clashes is the [caretaker] Prime Minister because he allowed these groups to enter the green zone and he was aware of all kinds of weapons they entered. »

“Those in charge of protecting the green zone are the special squad that protects government buildings, so these clashes took place between Saraya Al-Salam militias and official government forces, and today [August 31] funerals were held for the sons of the Iraqi army [killed] in Baghdad,” Adel said.

Backtrack

It is not known whether Sadr will reconsider his decision to leave politics, because Reuters reported: “he has often returned to political activity after similar announcements although the current stalemate in Iraq seems more difficult to resolve than previous periods of dysfunction.”

Dr. Ghalib Aldaamy, professor of media at Ahlul-Bayt University in Iraq, said that “the political process in Iraq is a process that is not governed by regulations, norms or foundations; it is based on improvisation rules.

“It’s hard to say that the Sadrist movement has withdrawn from political life,” Aldaamy said. Al Mayadein English.

“Sadr has stepped down in the sense that he will not interfere with the tendencies of his supporters in the protests, and this was confirmed on August 30 when he delivered a clear statement calling for the movement to stand down. definitely protests,” Aldaamy said.

“As long as Mr. Muqtada Al-Sadr is alive, the Sadrist movement will remain politically active.

“I think Al-Sadr will replace one of the people in the management of the most important files, but he will continue to intervene in critical circumstances that require him to send a message to the Sadrist movement,” Aldaamy added.

Al-Hassani, the postdoctoral research associate at Lancaster University, said Al Mayadein English that he [Sadr,] is the boy who cried wolf, because he quit at least 6 times in the past, and 2 times in the last year.”

“His resignation will not last long, and in the meantime, they will continue to mobilize, like last summer. He resigned in August 2021, yet his party continued to mobilize voters for the October elections and developed a mobile application for their registration. … and when he ‘returned’ to politics, everything was ready to win the elections,” Al-Hassani noted.

“The Iraqis are waiting for his return, but we don’t know exactly when.”

A friend of mine, obviously on the opposite side of politics to me, took an attitude of apathy toward the recent action on student loans taken by President Biden.

In case you’re more concerned about rising consumer prices over everything and missed it, the president announced a $20,000 student loan forgiveness plan for about 8 million borrowers, at provided they meet certain income criteria.

As with just about anything political these days, there are two schools of thought on this – for or against.

Some believe that it is a charity, which will place the burden of paying the scheme on all taxpayers, especially those who have not taken out such loans, and those who have and reimbursed them in accordance with the signed contracts.

The other side of the camp thinks that since the burden of loan repayment in a rotten economy is too heavy and the amount of loans to be repaid is too large, this is exactly the kind of help that governments should give to their voters.

Arguments made by opponents include personal liability, wasting taxpayers’ money and playing fools who repaid the loans.

The other side even went so far as to use the parable of the loaves and fishes from the Bible as an analogy to prove the anti-crowd argument is ridiculous, before giving up completely and ignoring anyone who hates the idea.

According to White House fact sheets, there is about $1.6 trillion in student loan debt, and the president’s plan will write off about $4 billion. The reasoning is that the skyrocketing cost of education combined with the cost of living in this beautiful country is awfully heavy.

I am in the anti camp, but not for the normal reasons. I am particularly bothered by the fact that the government has lent so much money – about 28% of what the government spends each year, for example, when there is nothing anywhere that gives the government federal power, authority or even permission to be a banker, loan officer, loan guarantor or educator.

Moreover, there is nothing in the Constitution that even allows the government to have anything to do with education. The Department of Education was elevated to cabinet status in 1980, the new kid on the block, so to speak.

Now, of course, it’s a massive corporation that comes with its own police force (which raided a home in California because of someone allegedly cheating on student loans).

This money should never have been distributed, but rather used for other necessities. This makes the idea of ​​whether loan forgiveness is good or bad debatable.

A foreign journalist who has lived in China for 15 years recently shared a story about Chinese democracy on a TV show.

The story was about National People’s Congress (NPC) deputy Wang Yan, who is also a bus driver in Tianjin Municipality in northern China. As a bus driver, Wang always listened to her passengers’ opinions while making suggestions, and her bus was thus transformed into a “mailbox” receiving voices from the public.

The foreign reporter said Wang’s story reflects China’s democratic system, a system that suits China’s national condition.

The whole process of people’s democracy is developed based on China’s national conditions. It bears distinctive Chinese characteristics and reflects mankind’s common quest for democracy. It promotes China’s development and the rejuvenation of the Chinese nation, and brings a new model to the international political scene.
There is a saying in Chinese that goes, “People shouldn’t wear shoes of the same size; they should wear shoes that fit their feet.

Democracy is formed by human society over hundreds if not thousands of years. However, there is no fixed model of democracy as countries vary in terms of history, culture and national conditions.

Rather than following western paths of modernization, China has blazed its own trail. He did not copy Western models of democracy, but created a Chinese one.

The 1.4 billion Chinese, or nearly 1/5 of the world’s population, are the real masters of their country and enjoy extensive rights and freedoms. This has greatly strengthened the confidence of developing countries in the development of their own democracy.

To judge whether a particular form of democracy works, one must see whether it is suited to the history and culture of a country, whether it conforms to the conditions of the country, whether it can ensure political stability and social progress , whether it can improve people’s lives, whether it can win public support, and whether it can help advance the progressive cause of mankind.

China’s comprehensive people’s democracy process is a combination of electoral democracy and consultative democracy, and is implemented through a combination of elections, consultations, decision-making, management and oversight.

It ensures that the Chinese people can express their concerns effectively and thoroughly at every stage of the process. They can participate in the political affairs of the state. From something as small as daily needs to something as big as national reform and development, the wills of the Chinese people are fully reflected.

In today’s China, the Chinese people enjoy the right to stand for election, the right to vote and the right to broad participation. They have the right to express their expectations and the right to have those expectations met. They also have the right to contribute to national development and the right to share in the fruits of development.

An important reason why China has ensured political stability and social progress while promoting democracy is that the country designs the most appropriate form of democracy according to its characteristics and realities – a basic principle to which China adheres for develop democracy.

Democracy is not only a mode of national governance, but also a principle of global governance.
China is a loyal and exemplary actor in the pursuit, exploration and practice of democracy. It strives to increase democracy both within its own territory and between nations.

China proposes building a global community with a shared destiny and advocates a new pattern of international relations based on mutual respect, fairness and justice, and win-win cooperation. It promotes the Global Development Initiative and the Global Security Initiative, and strongly supports the UN to play a greater role in international affairs. It calls for better development of the Belt and Road Initiative and advocates building an open world economy.
Facing profound changes not seen for a century, China always puts the future of mankind as its priority, upholds the principle of democracy in international relations and promotes democracy in international relations.

World affairs should be managed through consultation with the governments and peoples of all countries. It is a principle of democracy in handling international affairs and an inspiration to the world drawn from China’s democratic practices.

As the Chinese saying goes, “a delicious soup is made by combining different ingredients”. Political systems vary from civilization to civilization, and each has its own strengths. China has full confidence in its democracy and fully respects the democracy of other countries.

Looking to the future, China will firmly safeguard democracy in international relations while improving its own democracy, and work with the rest of the world to create a better future for mankind.
