The legislature is located in Senayan, Jakarta, the epicenter of Indonesia’s COVID-19 epidemic. The House has been in recess since Feb. 28.”The third session has been decided to begin on March 30,” lawmaker Arsul Sani of the United Development Party (PPP) faction, who is also a deputy speaker of the People’s Consultative Assembly (MPR), told the press on Thursday.He added that although the House would not extend its recess further, it would follow the government’s health emergency protocols during the plenary meeting to open the session, including maintaining adequate seating distance. All lawmakers who came to the plenary meeting must also have their body temperature checked before entering.“Some House members will be asked to sit in the balcony, which is usually reserved for visitors,” he said.Arsul went on to say that he had recommended that the House leadership keep the opening meeting brief by providing the relevant material to lawmakers beforehand, so the House Speaker would not need to read it out loud during the meeting.Lawmakers and their families had been scheduled to be tested for COVID-19 on Thursday and Friday in the Kalibata and Ulujami areas of South Jakarta. Journalists assigned to cover the legislature had also been scheduled to be tested for COVID-19 along with the lawmakers.The House had bought 40,000 rapid test kits expressly for this purpose, funded by donations from several lawmakers.However, the plan has been postponed until further notice following wide public criticism.Thousands of people have signed a petition calling for the plan to be canceled on Change.org, as there are many sick people across the country who were still finding it difficult to be tested.Three opposition parties – the Prosperous Justice Party (PKS), the National Mandate Party (PAN) and the Democratic Party – have also objected to the plan, saying that the House should be providing the test kits for free to those who could not afford them as well as to medical workers on the front lines.Indonesia has reported 790 confirmed cases of COVID-19 to date, including 58 deaths.Topics : After extending its recess from March 22 until March 29 following the emergence of the COVID-19 outbreak in Indonesia, the House of Representatives has decided to commence its next session on March 30.

NewsTalk ZB 20 July 2020Family First Comment: [The pamphlet] reads “the bill’s purpose is to reduce harm to people and communities.” No, it isn’t. The bill’s purpose is to legalise, or not, something that is currently illegal. You are voting yes or no, legal or illegal, nothing more. Could an outworking of the vote mean there might be less harm to people and communities? Possibly. Or indeed possibly not. Because that’s the case, you can’t make the claim something will happen, if in fact it might not. That’s fraudulent.So the con continues to unfold from the government over the cannabis vote in September.In my holiday mail was the official pamphlet, direct from the politburo. Putin would have been proud of it.Remember the official line is that the government holds no view on this, this is our choice, and they’re staying out of it. If you still believe that you’ve been asleep or you’re not that bright.When it was claimed Family First was getting money from an American lobby group, Andrew Little blew his lid. It was completely unjustifiable for a foreign group to involve themselves in a local debate and vote. But there was, of course, no money at all.And yet this is the same Minister who has overseen a series of rules that allow people like the Drug Foundation to raise whatever they like from whoever they like and not have to tell anyone who those people are, and he is just fine with it.Back to the pamphlet, it reads “the bill’s purpose is to reduce harm to people and communities.” No, it isn’t. The bill’s purpose is to legalise, or not, something that is currently illegal.

Because that’s the case, you can’t make the claim something will happen, if in fact it might not. That’s fraudulent.The pamphlet ends with the question, “where can I get more information?” The answer, of course, is the internet. But they offer you one tiny piece of the internet, namely their own website. Can we conclude that if that particular piece of the net they’re sprooking is as gerrymandered and biased as the pamphlet, then the only information you’ll be getting is the stuff they want you to see?READ MORE: https://www.newstalkzb.co.nz/on-air/mike-hosking-breakfast/video/mikes-minute-government-being-dishonest-over-cannabis-vote/

Press Association Costa then doubled Chelsea’s lead five minutes later when he tapped home from close range after Andre Schurrle’s shot from the edge of the area crashed off a post and into his team-mate’s path. Costa missed a chance to snatch a hat-trick in the second half, while Fernando Torres also fluffed a clear-cut opening. Thibaut Courtois – largely untroubled for most of the match – had to be alert to deny Chory Castro in the 77th minute. Costa, a £32million acquisition from Atletico Madrid in July, scored twice in the opening seven minutes as Jose Mourinho’s side geared up for their Barclays Premier League opener at Burnley on Monday with a deserved victory. The Blues made the perfect start when Costa opened the scoring in the second minute. The Spain striker was unleashed by a fine Ramires through-ball and made no mistake in dispatching past Sociedad goalkeeper Enaut Zubikarai from a tight angle to give the hosts a 1-0 lead. A Diego Costa brace helped Chelsea sign off from pre-season in style with a 2-0 victory against Real Sociedad at Stamford Bridge.

(BBC) – THE League One and League Two seasons have both been ended early after a formal vote by clubs yesterday.Both tables will be settled on points per game, while promotion, relegation and the play-offs all remain.Coventry and Rotherham go up from League One, while Wycombe replace Peterborough in the play-off places.Swindon are League Two champions, but “ongoing disciplinary matters” mean it is not yet certain who will drop out of the EFL and into the National League.Stevenage are bottom, but they could yet be reprieved after Macclesfield Town were handed a fresh EFL misconduct charge on June 1.The Silkmen, who are three points above Stevenage, have already had 11 points deducted for previous rule breaches this season and have a further suspended two-point penalty hanging over them if they transgress again.Both votes were passed by an “overwhelming majority”, according to the EFL, who also confirmed that the League Two play-off final would be held at Wembley on June 29.No dates have yet been confirmed for the League One play-offs.Elite football in England has been suspended since March 13 because of coronavirus, with only the Premier League and Championship so far committing to resuming their seasons later this month.Clubs in League One had previously been divided over whether or not to bring the season to an early conclusion.Initial talks stalled after at least six sides, including Sunderland, Portsmouth and Ipswich Town, said they wanted to continue the campaign.However, the new regulations – proposed by the EFL board and approved by the 71 member clubs earlier yesterday – meant just 51% of teams in any given division needed to agree on ending a season early.The points-per-game system does throw up one significant change to the League One table, with eighth-placed Wycombe Wanderers replacing sixth-placed Peterborough United in the play-offs.Wycombe will move up to third because they have at least one game in hand on each of their play-off rivals.What’s the situation in League Two?While the top half of League Two is largely unaffected, Swindon Town have been named champions after leapfrogging Crewe Alexandra because the Robins have a game in hand.The situation at the bottom has been complicated by the Macclesfield charge, however, which relates to late payment of wages in March and for “failing to act with utmost good faith in respect of matters with the EFL and for breaching an order, requirement, direction or instruction of the league”.Wembley to host League Two play-off finalFollowing yesterday’s vote, it was announced that the League Two play-off semi-finals are to begin on Thursday, June 18 – two days before the Championship season is set to resume.The final, which will take place on Monday, June 29, is to be held at Wembley as originally planned. All games will be held behind closed doors.
