Empire strikes back

first_imgPhoto by Tristan Tamayo/INQUIRER.netIt wasn’t just that defending champion La Salle had its morale beaten by its first back-to-back defeats in a long while. The Lady Spikers were dealt an additional blow when skipper and heavy scorer Des Cheng was scratched from the roster because of a shoulder injury.But this is La Salle, which has ruled the league with an iron fist for quite some time now. When all else fails, the team’s swag will carry it through. And on Saturday, Tin Tiamzon provided the emotional fuel for the Lady Spikers.ADVERTISEMENT Tom Brady most dominant player in AFC championship history Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Just know that I got you covered.’”Tiamzon had 10 points and provided a lot of the leadership that Cheng normally shouldered while wonder rookie added 14 points as La Salle whipped University of the East, 25-18, 25-20, 25-18, at Filoil Flying V Centre to wiggle out of its mini slump in UAAP Season 81 women’s volleyball action.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back ChrissSPORTSCoronation night?SPORTSThirdy Ravena gets‍‍‍ offers from Asia, Australian ball clubsSince dropping two straight games in a Finals loss to Ateneo in Season 77, The Lady Spikers have never dropped consecutive matches—they hardly lose in the first place.But they came into the match on the heels of defeats to University of the Philippines and University of Santo Tomas.

They are hoping to pile up enough wins to make the Final Four for the first time in three seasons.Lourdes Clemente and Aduke Ogunsanya also made solid contributions the Lady Spikers, who lost in attacks, 30-32, but made up for that with more kill-blocks (9-2) and service aces (10-2).Despite the win, Tiamzon said La Salle is far from its top form.“That wasn’t our A-game,” she said. “It’s a process and this season still has a long way to go.

UST’s Tigresses later matched that record, as rookie Eya Laure and veterans Sisi Rondina and Dimdim Pacres did a lot of heavy lifting in a 26-24, 25-17, 23-25, 25-17 victory over a young National U squad.The Tigresses were still without high-scoring sophomore Milena Alessandrini but again made up for her lost points with a lot of grit from Rondina and the rest of the UST squad, which rallied after facing set point—down three—to take the opening frame.That basically set the tone of the match as UST took control most of the way except in the third frame where they allowed NU’s sensational novice Princess Robles to score three successive attacks to force a fourth set.“I always have to remind them not to take their opponents lightly,” said UST coach Kungfu Reyes in Filipino. “Good thing we woke up in time because in the third set we were like sleeping.”Laure scored 20 points, while Rondina and Pacres added 16 and 12, respectively.ADVERTISEMENT Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil Rogue cops marked as Gamboa’s targets in his appointment as PNP chief Ginebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titlelast_img read more

 

ECC: Time to Monitor, Enforce Code of Conduct

first_imgThe Election Coordinating Committee (ECC), a coalition of seven civil society organizations set up to observe elections, said it has observed with grave concern a breach of certain provisions of the National Code of Conduct for all public officials and employees of the government during the just-ended ruling Unity Party (UP) National Convention. The breach has prompted the ECC to call for the establishment of measures to enforce, oversee, monitor and evaluate adherence to the Code of Conduct.In a statement released yesterday during a press conference in Monrovia, ECC Chairperson Oscar Bloh said during the party’s recently held convention in Gbarnga, Bong County, the UP violated Section 5.1 of the National Code of Conduct, which focuses on political participation.According to Mr. Bloh, the participation and election of several appointed government officials to key leadership positions in the UP is a direct form of engaging in political activities, in breach of Section 5.1 (a) of the Code of Conduct.Section 5.1 of the Code of Conduct states: “All officials appointed by the President shall not engage in political activities, canvass or contest for elected offices; use government facilities, equipment or resources in support of partisan or political activities.”Mr. Bloh added that the holding of the convention at the Gbarnga Administrative Building and the use of government vehicles, which encompass equipment and resources, also contravene Section 5.1 (b) of the Code of Conduct.He identified vehicle inscriptions such as General Services Agency (GSA), the Ministry of Finance Development and Planning (MFDP) -04-16, LB 1665 and GSA-MFDP-05-5 to be among government owned vehicles that were used at the convention.The UP convention was held in Gbarnga, Bong County, from July 7 to 9 in the city’s administration building where several government officials, who are also members of the Unity Party, were elected to various positions in the party, including Information Minister Len Eugene Nagbe as the UP’s new Secretary-General.But Mr. Nagbe has challenged anyone or group of institutions, who took exception to the party’s voting into offices its stalwarts, who are government officials, to seek redress through the court. Mr. Bloh maintained, however, that the participation and election of several appointed government officials to key leadership positions in the UP is a direct form of engaging in political activities, in breach of Section 5.1 (a) of the Code of Conduct.Apart from the contraventions of the Code of Conduct as catalogued by the ECC, Mr. Bloh observed that those elected to serve in key leadership positions within the party are overwhelmingly male, which indicates that the convention was not gender sensitive in keeping with the AmendedElection Laws of 1986 Section 4.5 1(b), which states that, “A political party of coalition in its submission to the Commission of its list of candidates for an election shall endeavor to ensure that the governing body and its list of candidates has no less than 30 percent of its members from each gender.”Going forward, and in keeping with Section 12.1 of the Code of Conduct, the ECC has called on President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf to establish the office of the Ombudsman responsible for the enforcement, oversight, monitoring and evaluation of adherence to the Code of Conduct.In the meantime, the ECC has called on all political parties to adhere to the provisions contained in the Code of Code regulating the conduct of political parties.The ECC is an election watchdog founded in 2011. It is a body of civil society groups supported by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) through the National Democratic Institute (NDI). The ECC’s motto is: “Promoting Credible Elections to Increase Public Confidence in Democracy.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
