MESSAGE BY THE VICE PRESIDENT ON THE OCCASION OF THE WORLD TELECOMMUNICATIONS AND INFORMATION SOCIETY DAY  

Vice President Danny Faure who also has responsibility for the portfolio for communications technology has called stakeholders to take the opportunity to continue to play their respective roles to be more dynamic and collaborative to ensure the availability of technological solutions which meet the needs of the different segments of the economy and the population. 

Vice President Faure made the appeal on the occasion of World Telecommunication and Information Society Day. The yearly celebration of the ICT week is important as it commemorates the World Telecommunication and Information Society Day which is celebrated every year on the 17th May. 

Every Year, the Day is celebrated under a particular theme and the theme for this year is “ICT entrepreneurship for social impact”. The theme is in line with the Government’s policy of placing emphasis and resources on entrepreneurship and development of Small to Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs). 

Vice President Faure says it is important that the necessary framework and a conducive environment are in place to facilitate and foster the development of ICT entrepreneurship and achieve the economic and social goals and targets that government and the IT sector have set together. 

He added that over the past years, there have been an increasing number of businesses that use ICT; either to improve their efficiency and reduce their operational costs or to provide ICT related services. 

UNESCO REPRESENTATIVE PAYS COURTESY CALL ON VICE PRESIDENT FAURE

“Seychelles though a small population has in the past scooped the top awards in Africa where information communications technology is concerned and that is testimony of Seychelles's high ability in that field.”

The declaration was made by Dr. Indrajit Banerjee from the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization after paying a courtesy visit to the Vice President Danny Faure at State House on Monday 16th May.

He said the main points of discussions included the programs being implemented with the support of UNESCO. “How can we promote sustainable development in the Seychelles and what could be the programs and activities that we can develop together given the UNESCO’s mandate in this area. To ensure that Seychelles is using cutting edge technology, forming young people on how to use technology; creating entrepreneurship and so on.”

Dr.  Banerjee is the Director of Knowledge Societies Division Communication and Information sector at the UNESCO and is the invited guest for the ICT week. He is expected to make a keynote address on the role of broadband in sustainability development during the official opening of ICT week
 

DAVID PIERRE RESIGNS AS LEADER OF PDM

David Pierre has announced his resignation as the leader of the Popular Democratic Movement, and also as the leader of the opposition in the National Assembly.

His announcement comes 5 months after the Presidential Election in December 2015. He said his decision comes after his party’s poor performance in the election. PDM managed to secure only 400 votes. Mr. Pierre served as leader of the opposition in the National Assembly since 2011.

“I’ve decided that it is time for the party to be renewed. I took that decision after the presidential election but since I had some work to complete in parliament here in Seychelles and in Pan-African parliament as well as being the Treasure of SADCOPAC, I had some work to complete so I decided to complete my work then tender my resignation.”

Following the resignation of Mr. Pierre, Ms. Francesca Monnaie has been appointed as interim leader of the party.

LEADER OF SNP REACTS CALLS FOR DEBATE REGARDING AMENDMENT OF PENAL CODE

The National Assembly is debating the amendment to Bill 151 of the penal code which seeks to decriminalize unnatural offences.

The Leader of the Seychelles National Party, Wavel Ramkalawan says the Government should have consulted with the community and even held a referendum before proposing such an amendment.

 “We hear of commitments that the government has given to the UN but those commitments have never been made known to the people of Seychelles. I feel that the people of Seychelles have been robbed of an opportunity to express themselves on such an important issue. Homosexuality is an issue which is both a human rights issue but at the same time it is a religious issue,” said Mr. Ramkalawan.

President James Michel highlighted the need to abolish provisions in our laws that criminalizes homosexuality between consenting adults in his State of the Nation Address in February this year. He said this is in view of Seychelles United Nations Human Rights obligations.

OFFICIAL LAUNCHING OF LINYON DEMOKRATIZ SESELWA

The Political party 'Linyon Demokratik Seselwa' has been officially launched.

The party was formed after the Seychelles National Party, Lalyans Seselwa, Seychelles Party for Social Justice and Democracy and independent candidate, Philippe Boulle joined together to contest the second round of the Presidential election in December 2015.

The party was officially launched during a meeting held at the International Conference Center on Sunday 15th May. During the ceremony, the party’s logo was unveiled and blue was revealed as the party’s official colour.

The party’s representatives for each district were presented to the supporters. The Chairman of LDS, Roger Mancienne explained that the list is not definitive. “We merely have presented them as representatives now because this is what we need at this point and I think the transition to candidates will come very smoothly when the time comes.”

The candidates will be named when the election date is declared and the nomination day is called.
