… despite adamant opposition including picketing exerciseParliamentarians on the Government side of the House were yesterday greeted by a volley of chants, including shouts of ‘Shame on you’ and a picketing exercise by placard-bearing People’s National Congress Reform (PNCR) supporters. PNCR parliamentarian Ernest Elliot bearing a placard with ‘God help Our Children” emblazoned on it in protest of Kwame McCoy’s The feisty prelude to Thursday’s session of the sitting of the National Assembly was in anticipation of a debate on a motion tabled by Chairman of the Committee of Appointments, Gail Teixeira, which sought the House’s approval of some 15 persons nominated to hold positions on the Rights of the Child Commission.Opposition members of the House lauded the move to have the Commission established, and endorsed the nomination of 14 of the 15 proposed persons, with the only exception being the Press Officer to the President, Kwame McCoy.Opening the arguments on the Opposition side after the motion was tabled by Teixeira was Deborah Backer, who launched a fierce attack on the proposed and eventually approved nomination of McCoy.According to Backer, McCoy did not in any way satisfy the criteria set out for the selection of persons to be recommended to the President for appointment.Backer described McCoy as extremely confrontational as well as controversial.In seeking to put the issue of McCoy in perspective, Backer told the House that the Committee of Appointments met regularly, and the entities entrusted with the nominations by early January had proposed some 14 names, and the committee was asked to prepare the draft report and insert the final name.This name came from the Ministry of Labour, Human Services and Social Security.Backer revealed to the House that by way of a telephone call she was first informed of the final nominee to the list,Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale, which was McCoy.“There was an instinctive disbelief… and I requested that the report be held until the committee met, where reservations could be expressed.”According to Backer, the personality of McCoy as is demonstrated in the print and electronic media was confrontational, and the party did not believe that he would enhance the work of the Commission.Backer further related that under the section of the Constitution that caters for the Commission it “shall be independent and impartial, and shall discharge its functions fairly.”Backer posited that this could not be the case with McCoy,Cheap Jerseys Supply, given that he, as was pointed out in the letter from the Ministry that nominated him,Cheap Jerseys Free, was a press officer to the President.“We felt that because of his close association to the governing party… he is confrontational… he is dogmatic, he is arrogant, he is rabid, thus unsuitable as a member of the Commission.”Backer was subsequently forced to withdraw some of her words, given that they were not considered parliamentary language.The Opposition also pointed out that another critical area in which McCoy failed was the fact that he did not have public respect, unquestionable honesty and integrity, which was vindicated in the initial public response to the announcement that McCoy was nominated to the Commission.As is the case where a nominee from the Ministry of Education was an employee of that Ministry, the Opposition questioned how is it that the Nominee from the Ministry of Labour,Wholesale Jerseys From China, Social Services and Social Security could be someone from outside of that Ministry, asking how could McCoy serve as the conduit of information between the subject Ministry and the Commission.Backer, without calling names, told the House that after McCoy’s name was announced at the Committee meeting, when the meeting was adjourned several members representing the PPP were uncomfortable with him being nominated to the Commission.Health Minister Dr Leslie Ramsammy lauded the notion of having the Commission instituted,Jerseys NFL Wholesale, pointing out that it was more important than McCoy’s membership, given that this could be reviewed.Teixeira in defending McCoy told the House that he was a very progressive young man who was goal-oriented.Responding to the charge that McCoy was controversial, Teixeira pointed out that politicians are generally controversial.“What is interesting about this debate is that a young man who is a professional, who happens to have a political position, who happens to work with the government of the day, is found to be unacceptable.”A point to note is the fact that the name Kwame McCoy was a nominee from the Ministry of Labour, Human Services and Social Security,nfl jerseys authentic cheap, but neither of the subject Ministers spoke on the motion, even though he was the centre of the Opposition’s objection.Nonetheless, the motion was passed and the names will be submitted to the President for his appointments.
