PREMIUMAt least 30 articles in omnibus bill contravene Constitution

first_imgFacebook Linkedin Forgot Password ? At least 30 articles in the omnibus bill on job creation are constitutionally problematic, therefore the government should retract the bill and fix it before resubmitting the draft law to the House of Representatives, legal observers have warned.Judicial watchdog KoDe Inisiatif said the omnibus bill, if passed into law, would revive seven problematic laws that had been annulled by the Constitutional Court.The bill, which comprises the draft revision of 79 laws, also neglected 25 other Constitutional Court rulings with 21 of them not adopted at all and four only partially adopted.”All potential violations of the constitutional norms are a serious concern. All of these will be seen as systemic deviations, not simply partial,” KoDe Inisiatif constitutional and economics coordinator Rahmah Mutiara said on Thursday.Citing an example, Rahmah said Article 166 of the b… omnibus omnibus-bill omnibus-bill-on-job-creation Constitution Constitutional-Court Jokowi puan-maharani Susilo-Bambang-Yudhoyono Airlangga-Hartarto Topics : Log in with your social account LOG INDon’t have an account?

​ATP backs ethical currency trading code

first_imgAccording to the FinansWatch report, Danish pension fund PFA and 12 other investors joined a lawsuit against 16 major international banks accused of manipulating currency prices. Danish pension fund ATP has signed up to the FX Global Code, a scheme created by the Bank of International Settlements (BIS) and central banks outlining ethical practices for trading within the foreign exchange (FX) market.The move came after a series of instances in which investors have sued major international banks relating to their behaviour in the currency markets, according to a report by Danish news service FinansWatch.Jan Ritter, head of hedging and treasury at ATP, said: “Unfortunately, we have seen a number of examples of irregularities in the foreign exchange market, which is inappropriate when we really need to ensure well-functioning exchange activities and high credibility.“For this reason, it makes perfect sense to ATP to contribute to the promotion of these principles for ethical behaviour and support the development of a healthy exchange market.” Source: ATPATP’s office in Hillerød, DenmarkATP, however, has now become the first Danish fund to officially sign up to the FX Global Code.The fund has also become a member of the Scandinavian FX Global Code committee, which comprises of representatives from a number of central banks and investors who meet to discuss issues surrounding the FX market.Apart from setting an example of good behaviour within the market, ATP said it hoped the agreement would help the general functioning of the FX market as a whole, ensuring the best possible prices.“By supporting this initiative, we contribute to positive development in the markets,” Ritter said. “We trade currencies in numerous markets, and we want our business partners to be decent and professional.”ATP uses the currency markets to hedge the Danish krone when investing in foreign equities, among other asset classes.ATP is one of just five market participants now listed on the Global Foreign Exchange Committee’s Global Index of Public Registers as pension funds, alongside Publica, Switzerland’s largest pension investor, which was also admitted in January.The index, which has 872 entries altogether, serves as a central reference point for demonstrated commitment to the FX Global Code.last_img read more

Gay bill: Another step forward

first_imgNZ Herald 14 May 2013Same-sex marriage campaigners say the overwhelming support for the bill at its second hurdle is a ringing endorsement which shows MPs are in line with the views of ordinary New Zealanders. Labour MP Louisa Wall’s bill passed its second reading last night 77 votes to 44, a drop in support of three votes from the first reading.….Conservative lobby group Family First this morning said it would continue to oppose the bill.“It is hugely concerning that the politicians failed to grasp some critical consequences of changing the definition of marriage,” national director Bob McCoskrie said.He said there was almost no discussion at the second reading about the bill’s impact on adoption law.Redefining marriage would allow same-sex partners to adopt as a couple, which Mr McCoskrie said was a change that was being “snuck under the door”.Mr McCoskrie also voiced concerns that independent celebrants could be coerced into marrying same-sex couples.The bill allows celebrants who are part of religious organisations to decline marrying same-sex couples, but does not extend that to independent celebrants.Mr McCoskrie said it was highly ironic that the Greens and Labour were determined to have a referendum on asset sales but would not allow one on marriage.An attempt by New Zealand First leader Winston Peters to delay the law change, until a referendum could be held at the 2014 general election, was voted down by a margin of 83 votes to 33. read more

Theo Walcott wants to find cutting edge to nail down forward role for Arsenal

first_img The England forward started up front and missed a number of chances before netting the opening goal to reward manager Arsene Wenger’s faith. “I was pleased with that goal,” Walcott said. Theo Walcott knows he and Arsenal need to be more clinical after their 2-0 win over Stoke. Press Association “Luckily I managed to grab one out of my many chances. I was disappointed because I should have got many, many more, but I’m getting the chances so I’m happy with that. “When you get given the opportunity you have to try to grab the goals when you can. “We create chances so we just have to put them away. We’re starting to get back to the old Arsenal.” It was arguably Walcott’s most difficult chance that he scored after he missed the target from close range twice previously. Francis Coquelin won the ball in midfield, fed Mesut Ozil to play a delightful pass over the top and Walcott brushed off Marc Muniesa before firing beneath Jack Butland. Walcott recognised the contribution of Coquelin in the goal. He added: “It’s things that people might not notice, like the tackle from Francis. “He’s in that position for a reason, you can see it there, and that just started off the rhythm of the movement. “Mesut’s ball was fantastic, and it was all down to the touch. It put the defender out of the game.” Wenger suggested Walcott and Olivier Giroud, who came on to score the second, will be rotated in the coming days, with Dinamo Zagreb and Chelsea the opposition this week. Walcott added: “I’ve said to the manager that I’d like to play up front. “I can play in any of those three positions up front, so it’s a good option for the manager to have. “It’s nice to see Olivier among the goals as well, which shows it’s great competition that we have for places here.” Butland’s performance was one of two positives for Stoke boss Mark Hughes. The other was the return from long-term injury of Bojan Krkic. Stoke have just two points after five games, but Butland cannot put his finger on any significant problems – although he says Stoke could be more aggressive. The goalkeeper said: “There’s lots of things. There’s no major issues. It’s just a case of looking at ourselves and making sure when we come into a game everyone’s ready. “We’ve done the work, it just comes down to make sure we implement it on the pitch and ultimately starting winning 50-50s, start being more aggressive and being better when we perform.” Chances were at a premium for Stoke as Butland repelled the Gunners time and again. He added: “For almost 80 minutes it was still 1-0. Whether we were good enough or not we were still in the game. “We didn’t create enough clear-cut chances, Arsenal certainly had more. “We’ve got to look at ourselves and do enough and we didn’t warrant getting anything from the game in the end.” last_img read more
