Lapin, who had been serving as acting prime minister ever since 93 of the 103 members of the Chamber of Deputies voted in favour of removing Prime Minister Jean-Henry Ceant, last month, was reportedly one of three person who had been considered for the permanent position.

Lapin will now spend the next few days forming his government before going before the Chamber of Deputies and the Senate to be ratified with a vote on his political programme. Lapin is the third head of government under President Moise, since he came to office in February 2017. The installation of a new government is an International Monetary Fund (IMF) pre-requisite for the disbursement of the first tranche of a US$229 million loan to Haiti. In 2018, Haiti, the poorest country in the Americas, had a record US$290 million deficit, while its national budget was estimated at US$1.8 billion. Political observers say that Lapin, a native of Jacmel, a port city in the southeast, is a relative unknown despite his years in the public administration and having served under the last four Haitian presidents.

Rebuilt Kirkdale depot to maintain Merseyrail fleet

first_imgUK: Metro Mayor of the Liverpool City Region Steve Rotheram buried a time capsule on May 16 to mark the ongoing construction of new depot facilities on an existing site at Kirkdale, where Stadler is to maintain the 52 electric multiple-units which it is to supply for Merseyrail services around Liverpool.The depot is being built by BAM Nuttall under a £20m contract awarded by Stadler Rail Services UK last year. It is scheduled for completion ahead of the delivery of the first of the new EMUs in June 2019, and the full fleet is expected to be in service in 2021.The contract also includes refurbishment of the existing Birkenhead North depot, which will be retained for overnight servicing and cleaning.Kirkdale depot is being designed to minimise the movement of stock. The site will feature a maintenance shed, washing and stabling facilities, a modified wheel lathe building, office space and a driving simulator suite. The four-car EMUs will be 65 m long, but the site will have provision to accommodate the EMUs should they be lengthened to 80 m.Speaking at the groundbreaking ceremony, Liam Robinson, Liverpool City Region’s portfolio holder for transport, said the new EMUs would ‘set the standard for the rest of the UK’.last_img read more

Akron Zips Lead Miami (OH) 21-6 at Half

first_imgSpecial to NEOSI by Donte DurhamThe Akron Zips try to improve to 2-0 in conference play as they lead against the Miami RedHawks 21-6 at the half.The Zips trying to continue the momentum established last weekend when they defeated rival Kent State, host the winless RedHawks at InfoCision Stadium-Summa Field. The Zips are led by QB Tra’Von Chapman for the 2nd week in a row as starter, Thomas Woodson is still recovering from an injury that occurred two weeks ago when the Zips hosted Appalachian State.Chapman for the 2nd week in a row has the Zips in ‘winning’ position as he has accounted for all three Zips touchdowns in the half. The first score came off a 70 yard run on a read option that put the Zips ahead 7-3 and they haven’t looked back since. On their next drive he threw a pretty pass on a skinny slant to wide receiver Austin Wolf to give them a 14-3 lead.In the 2nd quarter they added to their advantage with a TD pass to JoJo Natson to put the home team ahead 21-3.Chapman: 11-20 for 126 yards, with 2 TDs and 0 interceptions. He’s also rushed six times for a team leading 75 yards.Defensively the Zips have been stout when needed. Miami has had some success through the air as true freshman Noah Wezensky has led the RedHawks for the 2nd week in a row.Wezensky is 10-16 for 114 yards with 0 TDs and Int but they haven’t been able to put the ball in the end zone when they have had the opportunity. It should be an exciting 2nd half as Miami does have a history of overcoming huge deficits against the Zips, just last year they made a game out of a contest that once saw them down by more than 20 points. It’s also homecoming day for the Zips as they try to stay perfect and win their 2nd straight in MAC play.

Community Members Provide Input on Two Road Projects

first_imgHe says that project is a little ahead of schedule and may begin in early 2017. Once the Beaver Loop Road Project is completed, the City of Kenai has volunteered to take over maintenance and responsibility of the road. He added that residents of the area are also concerned that the wider roadway may cause an increase in speed through the neighborhoods. Holland: “We’re thinking about starting at the Kenai side, for various reasons. The first reason being we can cover the most distance with the money we have because on the other side of the project there’s some projects that have a higher cost. The other reason is that on the Soldotna there’s more property purchases required and up on the Kenai side there’s none.” Kenai Spur Project Manager Sean Holland with the Department of Transportation says the construction will be done in two phases since the state has secured only half of the $40 million is will cost to complete. Schmid: “When they’ve been manicuring everything right up next to the pavement and they have to come to terms with the right of way is 50 feet wide or whatever and doesn’t go all the way up there. It’s always a challenge but they understand. We clear the right of way not just to clear the right of way but it helps reduce maintenance and operations, it helps increase visibility for moose and side-streets when people come out to access the road.”  Tom Schmid, Beaver Loop Road Project Manager with the DOT, says some residents were concerned about their properties changing. FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Around 90 Kenai Peninsula residents visited the open house featuring the Kenai Spur Highway Renovation and Beaver Loop Road projects on Thursday night at the Kenai Visitors and Cultural Center. Attendees to the open house provided comments on both projects which will be reviewed by the project teams.last_img read more
