Minister Alain St Ange Resignation debacles

Minister Alain St Ange Resignation debacles

It first appeared a Facebook debacle 27/12/16

Viral Dhanjee Utter crap. No one ever, ever resigns from a job because ‘’of an intention (no confirmation) of applying ‘’ -- for another post. One always secures a future post before, and then resigns the current one.

I get the impression that he may well have been helped in taking that decision to resign.

However all the very best to him in his new ventures and endeavours and for the future.

A more believable story would have been he needs to get started on his preparations to run for the next presidential elections. He has, after all, sworn to be president one day. To that I would say the more the merrier – good for democracy. All the best Alain.

Mr Viral Dhanjee - somewhat surprise by you short comment - you belong to the few on Facebook we hold any half respect - my person have had to work, impute in a long list of Seychelles Minister for Tourism , one acquire experience and knowledge, the special particularity of a person - you know Seychelles media, the experts - State House press. The amount of intervention my person have had to make - this is high Interdisciplinary - some of the crap, mechanism and discipline I/my person have had to apply to get a or some given thematic moving, had i/my person to explain the NA would have to given all of them some cocaine or the such first, they just lack, incapable of grasping on -or they are so thoughtful dishonest , it goes in one ear and come out of the other so I cannot be bothered. Minster Alain St Anges did not work and act alone. President J A Michel put together a think Tank hoping they will provide better high Interdisciplinary capacity than my person -how they fail. The question who is the next individum they are going to ditch on my person and my person will have to cope with.

I/we renewed that seyeu.com portal 26/12/16 it is partly offline have messaged the Hosting company they form part of Europe second biggest group what this represent - trust they are not connected.

I have been boycotting the National Assembly which anybody can follow via radio Sezel or Paradise radio fro the past two weeks instead listening to radio Salzburg- when I join them via the internet radio some of the benefits/synergy they get then they loud mouth everybody it is their doing they have become little Gods - had I listened with them on the Budget and other debacle this resignation would not have taken place - three quarter of them morons in that country they do not comprehend anything all they know is Freemason -

If they had balls in that Assembly they would acknowledged I structured thing that then Mr Alain St ange joined President J A Michel Team - some of them know of this and yet. Their own Position. The Seychelles media can go to live in Judge EJ Stiven Pig sty and cowshed.

Minister Alain St Ange has written to President Danny Faure expressing his intention to apply for the post of Secretary General of the World Tourism Organisation. In this context, Mr St Ange has submitted his resignation as Minister of Tourism Civil Aviation, Ports & Marine.

In accepting the resignation, President Faure thanked Minister St Ange for the enormous contribution he had made to the promotion and development of tourism and culture in Seychelles, and for his support and advice on many matters discussed in Cabinet.

President Faure has also written to the Speaker of the National Assembly, seeking the Assembly's approval for the appointment of Ambassador Maurice Loustau-Lalanne as Minister.

St. Ange Resigns - Seychelles Tourism in Limbo!


The jolly smiling minister of Seychelles Tourism from La Digue has resigned abruptly as Minister of Tourism. Mr. Alain St. Ange has tendered his resignation to President Danny Faure, before the New Year, just after he announced breaking the arrival records and increasing tourism by near 20% this year. At the time of his resignation, Tourism Arrivals blew the dream mark of 300,000.

This is the third time since we renewed the Hosting package of the SEYEU.COM portal the intro page and Home page get hack offline

What is Racism !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We played an important role in giving the World the WWW and countless Social media project from a high Interdisciplinary Management prospective ( Take sometime think back the state of your mind/intellectual in 1980's, that of your children and indeed Africa) - When we decided the world needed a different communication/information approach back in 1987 we did not say the black or negro will not be allowed to use it/benefits - those who dare/challenge my person President FA Mitterrand Grave is accessible to the pubic, take a rose and go and talk to him, ask him what really happened. What we tried to do.

We have explained that portal project purpose - countless time we have note that our Black sisters and brothers dislike that project - with the departure of Minister Alain St Anges there are some/certain connecting issues - ( Today in Seychelles you cannot grow any kind of crop if they are not monitored by surveillance e camera and guard dogs) - this psychology, thinking and frame of mind is reflected beyond our national boarders and international workings -

We would like to ask the Ministers involved in hyping this bad relation take a glass of water put some salt and sugar in it then have a good drink -

With that project we have worked and also challenge the mighty UN Institutions, the EU, African Union - what we are saying is that Seychelles is minute in the global working of things - do not compel us to use technology beyond the reach of the government to drive home we also have limit to tolerance . That project started as a Refugee exile History project and the politic of Africa in Seychelles e have battled to give you that bit of edge over your African brothers and sisters( We used it help the process of OAU become African Union after the way you treated President Qaddafi one should not be surprised at anything ) Do you know how much money we have brought/prosperity to that Seychelles your black father/mothers sisters and children vi that portal project ( the young Mauritius athlete who helped with that SIROP portal project comment I/we stretch our self to help beyond the sea and the ocean - none of them /you will jump over a puddle to help when the time come ) - the thank you - you hack our portal offline. Just look around you in North Africa and the gulf Region - the majority of you cannot think logic - we had hope the seas, the creatures in that country would have talked to you and shared a great deal of what we do and how we function in the greater world. https://static1.squarespace.com/static/55c48182e4b03ca91f267647/t/571de345e707ebff3082c7c4/1447861261095/

Opinion - Loustau-Lalanne and St Ange on the tourism road ahead

Post  Sirop14 on Fri Dec 30, 2016 2:07 pm

Opinion - Loustau-Lalanne and St Ange on the tourism road ahead

30-December-2016
So it is now public knowledge that Alain St Ange has resigned as Minister for Tourism, Civil Aviation, Ports and Marine and that President Danny Faure has submitted the name of Mr Maurice Loustau-Lalanne to the National Assembly for his appointment as the new Minister for Tourism. This is a position for which Mr Loustau-Lalanne is highly qualified bringing with him a range of experience in most aspects of the international travel trade, most suitably during his tenure as the country’s principal secretary for the Ministry of Tourism and Transport from 1988-1998. In addition he has had prior postings as the director general of Civil Aviation (1981-1986) and the executive chairman of Air Seychelles (1985-1988).

Re: Minister Alain St Ange Resignation debacles

Post  Sirop14 on Sat Feb 11, 2017 2:21 pm

Parti Lepep Orizinal Alain St Ange accused of:
Why divide Africa's vote and chances at UNWTO?
The African tourism fraternity was happy when one of its own declared interest to run for the highly sought-after post of Secretary-General of the United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO), which is going to be vacant at the end of 2017 when Taleb Rifai, the outgoing Secretary-General will hand over to a successor.
With years of experience, global networking and execution of impactful tourism projects in his country, Walter Mzembi, Tourism Minister of Zimbabwe and the current Chairperson of the UNWTO Regional Commission for Africa, was endorsed as the sole candidate for Africa. With that feat, Mzembi started networking within and outside the continent in preparation for election slated for May 2017 where he will slug it out with other candidates from Georgia, Mexico, and Brazil (Marcio Favilla, current UNWTO executive director for operational programmes and institutional relations, already endorsed by his home country Brazil).
To ensure that Africa clinches the position for the first time since the creation of the United Nations agency responsible for the promotion of responsible, sustainable and universally accessible tourism in 1975, the African Union threw its weight behind Zimbabwean Mzembi, and even Southern African Development Community (SADC) member states – including Seychelles – unanimously endorsed Mzembi’s (Zimbabwe) candidature in March 2016. African Heads of State and Government, meeting in Kigali, Rwanda, in July 2016, added their own unanimous endorsement of Mzembi, who thus became Africa’s candidate for UNWTO.
In its confirmatory letter of endorsement, addressed to the Secretary General of the UNWTO, the African Union Commission stated that: “It is the firm conviction of African Heads of State and Government – as evidenced by their unanimous endorsement of Dr. Mzembi’s candidature – that he has the qualifications, skills and competence; the vision; and, equally as important, the drive and passion to successfully build on the remarkable legacy bequeathed to global tourism by His Excellency Dr. Rifai, and to lead the organization and global tourism to new heights of relevance, recognition, and results – tourism being an effective vehicle for sustainable development, the building of deeper understanding between peoples and cultures, and for the reinforcement of the quest for greater global harmony and peace.”
But while Africans were rallying round Mzembi with the hope of giving him a block vote, a bad news broke on December 28, 2016 when Alain St. Ange, the then Minister of Tourism for the Republic of Seychelles, resigned his position to contest (for the second time) the same position the continent has already had a sole candidate for.
The question most Africans who are passionate about tourism development across the continent asked was: Why now? But while that question may be rhetorical, the one that needs urgent answer is: Why divide Africa’s vote and chances at the UNTWO?
In his opinion, Ikechi Uko, CEO, Akwaaba African Travel Market/team leader, The Team Africa, Seychelles is already occupying the position of Head of Africa at UNWTO, a position vacated by Senegal, hence pushing for Secretary-General of UNWTO will be taking undue advantage of the continent. But going by the UNWTO politics, it seems the some caucus want Georgia to win and the only way is to use an African to divide African vote, and probably offering Seychelles the position of Deputy Secretary-General for splitting Africa’s votes in favour of the desired winner.
Having entered the race and left little or no impression at the first time, Mathieu Keroki, a Congolese tourism expert, said that the Seychellois St.Ange should have respected Africa’s choice instead of voicing his interest once again, and probably aiming to divide Africa’s vote.
“I think he is not fit for the job. He should respect the choice of Africa and support Mzembi’s candidature,” Keroki said. The major concern for Bongani Kumalo, a South African resort owner, is the fact that the position takes long to revolve, and now the wheel is favouring African, the continent should move against any opposition within or else, other continents will keep splitting Africa’s votes in their selfish favour.
“Before the flag off of their campaign in Madrid, Spain later this month, Africa should intervene on St.Ange to step down, so that we can speak with one voice and block vote is important too,” Kumalo warned.
The race is getting hotter as Brazillian Marcio Favilla and African Walter Mzembi set to clash at their launch during FITUR in Madrid on January 19, 2017 to get supporters for ahead of the UNWTO Executive Council meeting scheduled to be held in Madrid in mid-May, 2017. As well, St.Ange will be presenting his manifesto as well to the global body in campaign for UNTWO’s top position. For those who doubt Walter Mzembi’s endorsement and capabilities:
Mzembi has served as Zimbabwe’s Minister of Tourism and the Hospitality Industry since 2009. Prior to that, he held various positions in both the public and private sectors in Zimbabwe and internationally, including heading the Zimbabwe delegation to the ACP-EU Joint Parliamentary Assembly for three consecutive years.
He has represented his country on the UNWTO Executive Council and is currently serving his second consecutive term as Chairperson of the UNWTO’s Regional Commission for Africa. Mzembi has a long-standing, deep, and abiding passion for tourism in all its many facets, as well as a well-defined and clearly articulated vision for the future development of the global tourism industry under the umbrella of the UNWTO.
After the Madrid launch the candidates will continue their campaign to other global tourism bodies and blocks, seeking further support and eventual votes.

UK magazine interviews Seychelles’ candidate for SG of UNWTO

UK magazine interviews Seychelles’ candidate for SG of UNWTO
03-March-2017
‘The successful UNMWTO secretary general will need to respect everyone and every country’
The following is an interview by the FIRST Magazine of the UK with Alain St Ange, the Seychelles candidate for Secretary General of the UNWTO.

Why did you decide to run to be the next WTO Secretary General?

Tourism has been my life. It has been my only career since returning to Seychelles from my hotel and tourism studies. I have decided to run for the position of Secretary of the UNWTO because I believe the organisation needs the new SG to have qualities to continue in the footsteps of Mr Taleb Rifai. He will be remembered as having been the giant in his work that brought countries together and for being the catalyst for unity with other tourism and travel related organisations. I believe that I have the needed qualities to continue the work undertaken by Mr Taleb Rifai, and I am sure I could follow in the footsteps with success.

Seven candidates in the running

Post  Sirop14 on Sat Mar 18, 2017 6:27 pm

UNWTO election:

18-March-2017
Seven candidates in the running



With the closing of nomination just after the ITB Tourism Trade Fair in Berlin, it has been confirmed that seven candidates are now in the running for the position of secretary general of the UNWTO (United Nations World Tourism Organisation).

The final list of candidates comprises Vahan Martirosyan (Armenia), Márcio Favilla (Brazil), Jaime Alberto Cabal Sanclemente (Colombia), Zurab Pololikashvili (Georgia), Young-shim Dho (Republic of Korea), Alain St Ange (Seychelles) and Walter Mzembi (Zimbabwe).

According to the secretariat of the UNWTO, the submissions of the seven mentioned candidates were received before the March 11, 2017 deadline, were complete and duly accompanied by the required documents (letter of the candidate, curriculum vitae, statement of policy and management intent and a certificate of good health signed by a recognised medical facility), along with the letter of support from the government of the country endorsing the candidate.

The secretariat received seven other applications which were not accompanied by the required documents. Consequently, the applications will not be submitted to the 105th session of the executive council.

A tested leader: No stopping for Mzembi

With enthusiast leaders in the caliber of minister Mzembi, we are really repositioning tourism to take center stage into the agenda of the world.”— South Africa Tourism Minister Tokozile Xasa
PRETORIA, SOUTH AFRICA, May 1, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ -- "Africa’s time is now!" This is the message that South Africa’s Tourism Minister Tokozile Xasa is trying to get across, while endorsing her counterpart - Zimbabwe's Minister of Tourism Walter Mzembi - as the right candidate for the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) Secretary General position.

Dr. Mzembi will face five other contenders — Georgia's Zurab Pololikashvili, Colombia's Jaime Alberto Cabal Sanclemente, South Korea's Young-shim Dho, Brazil's Márcio Favilla, and Alain St. Ange from Seychelles to lead UNWTO from 2018 to 2021.

May we polite add our rant as those very clever rats in that Seychelles call/brand our comment - our grand parents Estate and the rats in the Toddy container - now serious - with the death of that person from the National Assembly Secretariat the statement how united the nation was - How Mr Alain St Ange was bulldoze from the SNM in the arms of Seychelles government - the mechanism/methodology used/applied then. Once in office how he went about systematical go/for our working in Europe and Seychelles ( He grew up learning the rope of how our Italian Illuminati and global corporate works the need to have/show respect at time)- then we talk of great Illuminati and Fraternal workings - the Prisoners at Montagen Posee are also Illuminati. How many have watched the film Ben and the artist Micheal Jackson who sang and composed the song - the great lesson in that film. In France last night the major debate on Frenceinfo by Cisco CEO to make France in the future the leader in IT working in Europe and those projects of our for the past 10 years driving very many important Tourist project in Seychelles, Reunion, Mauritius and the Region - yet the lies of the experts/super rats how they perceives this was done achieved. The science of Management Tourist Industry. Including the Seychelles Carnal and Festivals - Had Mr/ex Minister Alain St Ange comported differently and we address the world very bluntly we could, would have supported his greater engagement involvement not just Africa Tourism but the world Tourism working. The above briefly said - you the public/people and others be the Judge/make your conclusion -

BREAKING: SEYCHELLES UNWTO CANDIDATE QUITS RACE
http://www.thebusinessconnect.co.zw/breaking-seychelles-unwto-candidate-quits-race/

Withdrawal of Mr Alain St Ange for the position of Secretary General of UNWTO
http://www.statehouse.gov.sc/news.php?news_id=3434

Comment -
We have addressed/comparing Minister Alain St Ange bid for the WTO post as the effort of Seychelles to get a seat on the Security Council - what the reals issues, and the fake issues and what the government told the public and Seychelles media and those from the UN, USA, EU, Russia, china, India, the Gulf Region AU what the other agenda was all about that SIROP program,.

We would like to have the attention of all the Ministers of Tourism, the Director of Tourism and the Small Hotel Association of Seychelles, beside Mauritius and South Africa - when that SIROP program was announced in 1987. There are forums threads and emails and letters covering much of these events, politic and polices and development and redevelopment. The very Management of the Tourism Industry Sir James Mancham who had been the Pioneer of our Tourism Industry knew and perceive these facts very well and his endeavor to have the upper hands most of the time and then come the era of Minister St Anges his contributions and suddenly the World and region acclaim Seychelles as show case of Small country Tourism Development. We do not have the dozens of Staff and graduates to move papers around and think what to write to spend their day. That SIROP program have made a significant impact on Seychelles Tourism industry, that of Mauritius and Reunion.

There are topic during the Obama US Presidency we did not wish to write. President Donald Trump Business empire. One of the major mistake Minister Alain St Ange made and this we say in public was to undermine that program at the same extract maximum benefits form is may linkage, dynamics and leverage capacity. Not just him most of Seychelles Ministers and leading politicians.

Part of the approach/challenges of writing that program - beside the requirement to have sufficient experience and knowledge of work economic workings and several industries. One of the challenges was the Tourist Industry -forget little Seychelles. That when we presented the concept to then President Gorbachev and later Yeltsin - the need to put in place a complete innovative industry for those Nations of the former COMECON, Soviet Union - those Communist Blocks as a major Industry and in term of National earning, infrastructure and requirements, employment and economic driving force/Wealth. The impacts of other world Tourist destinations.

The construction industry of Hotel and their finances, expertise and the Stock Markets and we have participated is very many aspect of these from 1987 to date - may be we ought to have applied for the Job of WTO.

One of the biggest factor we had to cope and help managed the move away from Military/armament as major world economic drive to one industry, the Travel Industry the development of new Planes be they Boeing, Airbus and others - they/those planner and politicians and big financiers we informed /shared the issues 25 years we have a vastly sophisticated World Tourist industry and Place construction industry and holiday resorts and it vast financial complexities we have been involved and participated/help drive and build. The many instance we have addressed the debacle of the two major Plane construction company and the capacity to impute and help a major Nation acquire a complete fleet of new Plane and the many complex details of the finances and refinances.

African did not know anything as such about Global Tourism industry from this prospective - those from the OAU who did even understand what this SIROP program was all about in the first place all they thought was politic as most of the African Nations do. The skepticism of their politicians and here is where President Obama will get unhappy we had to take the Bull by the Horne meaning help work out unorthodox and draconian politic and policies over the heads of the African Union and this Little Seychelles Nation.

When we talk of Minister Alain St Ange undermining that program to his own detriment - our call and request very many time to get the UN, the EU, the African Union to help report on that program functionality form 1976 to date they would have encountered many highly economic phenomena and how this would have contributed to make a better world and economic working for the many nations depending on Tourism.

We are not going to beat about the bush - President Francois Holland got into/Landed into mega trouble over this Program and the state of emergency in France. The Presidential election and outcome. Every entity and company know you build on foundation that exist and have existed and that SIROP program have a very important foundation in the global Tourism Industry sector -we do not have the time and the staff to dictate and write beautiful article.

We have written to President Danny Faure about the buzz of taking that ex Mahe Beach Hotel building and housing that SIROP program in Seychelles beside other projects and usage and his reaction - this is the fundamental approach attitude of the vast major of Seychellois and had we to be PM or Minister would have to cope with this attitude and mentality/thinking. We have some 40 years experience and knowledge now. Meaning we do not have to put up with the negative aspects of such thinking.

We addressed a thread a few days before the French presidential election on the possibility of Mr Emmanuel Marcon becoming President - we have worked and impute with all the President of France since the conception of that SIROP program and each of then their individual politic and aspiration for the world and the region. That SIROP program is very much alive and dynamic driving important aspect of EU Economy and other world economy.

In Seychelles from 2014 the debacle of finding solution for the national and government workings the abuse and corruptions - Now should Minister Alain St Ange be interested having stated the above briefly - along the line of the formation of the LDS what really took place behind close doors and under the beds in the cupboards. Given that we played a role that he parted form SPPF/PL and his Journey to SNM - We need/require serious individual who can help/contribute to assessing the current of a given Industry or major economic situation in all its complexities/problematic and help formulate innovative and working approach/plan over the next 5 years. The EU Support this SIROP program some of the BRICS Nations and so do the African Union and the Gulf Region Nation and Asia and Latin America. Britain Tourism Industry landscape for the past 30 years and the related issues to that SIROP program. Before in Seychelles we had only a few who grasped and understood what it was all about we now have a modes group of young graduate who can think and look at the world differently - Seychelles is indeed small, yet we have great potential in the form of that SIROP program.

Until now the many insulting and negative remarks about Minister St Ange bid for the WTO and those From Africa - we have address the brief issues here had we a small Team as African Union had promised we could have written a proper dossier on World Tourism working and its potential for the next 5/10 years. Minister St Ange can go back to the African Union and tell them bluntly this is our view and position, they have worked with is the past 30 years, if they do not like it we will look for other possibility do not after come and publicize that they invented this and that economic unique concept in Tourism. It does not hold water and those who work the World Tourism Industry will just smile. Beside it requires special/unique mechanism dynamic and management capacities and this we have in that SIROP program - Including Space Tourism and sophisticated advance/future Transportation methodology. Had Minister Alain St Ange been wise he would have spared his person a great deal of grief and stress and humiliation - He was misguided and misinformed. We know and have been very aware of the politic of Seychelles government for Tourism because we have helped managed this for the past near 40 years.

A word of advice to President Danny Faure - he ought to remember very well the first six month of President JA Michel his promise to be a facilitator of what, that SIROP program and later he discovered and those helped him invent the Blue economy.

e full text of the speech:

Mr le Secrétaire Général, Sa Majesté, Mesdames et Messieurs les Ministres, Cher amis,

Il y a cinq mois de cela j'étais encore assis à vos côtes comme Ministre du tourisme des Seychelles, comme un collègue et surtout comme un ami.

Pendant les cinq derniers mois, et plus précisément depuis le lancement à Madrid, de ma candidature pour le poste de secrétaire général a l'OMT, vous m'avez entendu, discuté avec moi, lu les articles et documents sur cette compétition pour ce poste.

Mais l'homme propose et Dieu dispose.
Aujourd'hui par une simple lettre de la Présidence Seychelloise, ma candidature n'existe plus.

It with mixed emotions that I stand before you all today.

I am filled with pride first and foremost at how far our small Island Nation, the Seychelles, has come in the race for the prestigious role of Secretary General of the UNWTO, the highest office of tourism in the world.

However, I am also filled with disappointment and regret that I cannot see this race to completion and cross that finishing line with my fellow candidates and esteemed colleagues.

I have dedicated my career to the field of Tourism. I have served proudly in my country as CEO for Tourism, following which I was appointed as Minister for Tourism and Culture. Later on I was entrusted with more responsibility; my portfolio was expanded to Minister for Tourism, Civil Aviation, Ports and Marine. In addition to this, I was a founding member of the Indian Ocean Vanilla Islands, and elected as the first President thereof. I worked diligently and tirelessly for my country throughout this period.

I have served as an Executive Committee Member for the UNWTO for the past two years, working hard alongside most of you for the betterment of world tourism, a privilege which I alone enjoyed amongst my fellow candidates.

I have always been passionate about the field and I remain excited to work with all of you in the future in some shape or form to further our ideals.

I resigned from my Ministerial role when I was inundated with support from various countries to pursue the role for SG following Mr. Taleb Rifai announcing that the end of term was coming. I entered the race for the post with the firm, heartfelt belief that Seychelles, as a small Island State within Africa, has a voice, that we matter, and that we have the capacity to be a leader in tourism in the global arena. In addition, I had, and still have, the conviction that we would have brought something entirely different to the table, an element of diversity, which only a small country with a melting pot of cultures like ours could.

I put my heart and soul into my campaign over the past five months, incurring great costs at my own expense, and meeting great people along the way.

I arrived in Madrid a few days ago with my ever supportive family and friends, only to learn soon after landing that my tireless campaign had been turned abruptly on its head. I was informed informally via telephone by the Vice President of Seychelles that my Island Nation had revoked my candidature. A few moments later the news spread like wildfire on social media.

Following the threat of sanction communicated by the African Union to Seychelles, the Seychelles had little choice but to bow to the demand and hastily revoke its candidature. It could be perceived as a display of bad faith by the Seychelles to revoke its candidature a mere two days before the UNWTO elections, after months of campaigning, but it must be remembered that Seychelles is a small Island Nation which is highly dependant on support from its neighbouring countries. Together we triumph, alone we fall.

Needless to say I am saddened that I will not have the opportunity to see the promise that I made to many of you to fulfilment. I will forever be grateful to those of you who pledged support for me in today's elections, and to those of you who will continue to work with me for the benefit of global tourism.

My interests have always been and will continue to be for the furtherance of Seychelles and to forge important ties between the world tourism community.

I regret that I will not be able to honour my promise to the Seychellois people to take our Nation further than it has ever been before. I hope that the Seychelles people will be able to forgive me for not being able to now see this through.

It is important to note at this juncture, and to bring to the attention of the Executive Council of the UNWTO the reason for my address this morning.

Despite President Faure of the Seychelles withdrawing my candidature by way of a letter three days ago, there are procedural irregularities in his withdrawal letter which cannot be overlooked. The power to withdraw my candidature rests with me alone. He can, however, withdraw the Letter of Endorsement that he wrote which accompanied my candidature. Had he withdrawn the endorsement he graciously gave me, it would cause my candidature to fall.

A win for me would have been a win for Seychelles, and a win for Africa. However, to contest his letter is to leave my country vulnerable to threat of sanction.

Though I would have served the UNWTO well and to the best of my abilities, and that I would have made my small country proud, and Africa proud, I can assure you that I will continue to dedicate my life to world tourism. With that said, although technically I am still a viable member for the position of SG, I am bound to comply with the firm directive of the African Union and the wishes of my country's President, and regretfully bow out at this very late stage of the race with my head held high.

There are now five remaining candidates for the post of SG. I have met and interacted with all of them along the way. There are a few excellent prospects for the role, and it is my humble view that, if they are elected, they are capable of serving you diligently and lead you competently into the new era. With that said, I pledge my support to the future SG. I will strive to unify the tourism leaders so that we can continue to prosper the tourism industry.

With these few words, I wish to end with a quote from one of the great leaders of Africa, and of the world: Nelson Mandela.

He said: "A good head and a good heart are always a formidable combination."

God bless, and I am grateful to you all and to my country for having given me the opportunity to run for the position of SG of the UNWTO

Comment
Former minister St Ange we will comport like/as bad little Seychellois this morning - my/our sister Mrs Easter Vidot would have told my person "ye bon pour ou" "some will say you take milk and put water in it then sell it as milk" in such an instance - have read you message - you are paying for the price of dancing to music/tune you do not like - the real Story of African Union - all those in then Europe then OAU, those who came to my person because/on accountant of that SIROP program unique symbiosis and leverage then galloping EU and the mega disparity of then OAU. Our polite comparison of the European Suite for Africa Please/do something what it took and take, the capacity to identify those individuals in the OAU to spearhead the project African Union - we can provide a list - those in Europe, the UN, Russia, China, the Francophone, Commonwealth and Arab world - impute and manage/bring the thematic forward, the outcome - then we talk of our great Illuminati/Masonic and Templar benchmark, President F Mitterrand grave warning to us on this topic - what ensued and what happen to the person of President Ghadaffi and African Union attitude/position, they fed him to the wolf - there is a great movie and a classic about a young French man inheritance in Africa you get hold of the film it would be on YouTube watch it 100 times. We trust the Justice/Judiciary of Seychelles will get to read our comment. Take a chair and put it by late President Mancham resting place and listen - he knew all those issues what he did not write and tell the world.

UNWTO Elections
African Union threats squeeze Seychelles out
Seychelles does a swift about-turn after the African Union threatens sanctions if the country doesn't toe the line and withdraw its candidate for the post of secretary general of the United Nations World Tourism Organisation, Alain St. Ange. According to international media, St. Ange is "livid" about this recent development and is calling for the United Nations to now "bar Zimbabwe from the election" because the African Union "blackmailed" Seychelles and "threatened it with sanctions."
by C. Marimba
In a press conference yesterday morning, Vice President Vincent Meriton spoke about Alain St. Ange's forced withdrawal from the race to become the next secretary general for the United Nations' World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO).
"We were carried away by the desire that a Seychellois could win, and he had a great chance at winning. It would have made Seychelles and Africa proud. We weren't seeing our support for a Seychellois as something that would divide Africa," said the VP at one point during the interview with the press.
In hindsight, he admitted, they should have sought more advice on the matter...
It would seem that Seychelles was asked to remove its candidate in the race for the position of secretary general last month on the sidelines of a ministers' meeting, but "at that time there were no talks of sanctions," explained the VP.
However, things changed this week when a 'note verbale', dated 8 May but received by the President on Tuesday 9 May, "demanded that the government removed its candidate in the race for the position of Secretary General of the World Tourism Organisation," said the VP. In this 'note verbale', continues the VP, "the African Union noted that there are mechanisms already set in place, which make provision for when certain countries do not follow procedures when it comes to the submission of candidates and they mentioned sanctions."
The sanctions that the AU has threatened Seychelles with are in
areas of politics, economy, communications agreements and
transportation agreements "and other sanctions that the AU can
take at the end of its summit, in instances that a country breaks an agreement." Politically, "Seychelles would be unable to submit a candidature in any of these international bodies or even deputise or second another Seychellois for five years. On the economic side, there is the commerce that Seychelles has on bilateral agreements with different countries. We have to remember that today we have Kenya Airways and Ethiopian Airlines which flies here. Remember that we also have Air Seychelles which flies regionally - South Africa, Mauritius, Madagascar and these could have been included as part of the economic sanctions, and other sanctions which form part of AU's
sanctions," continued the VP.
The VP also mentioned that faced with the strong-arming of this big continental body, " the President decided to call an Extra-
Ordinary Cabinet meeting where we discussed these issues. Faced with such a situation, the government made the decision with a heavy heart. We felt that Mr. St. Ange had a great chance of winning and it was with a heavy heart that we decided to remove his candidacy and the necessary was done to inform the office of the Secretary General of the World Tourism Organisation, and the office of the chairperson of the African
Union, our embassies in African countries, as well as the AU office in Switzerland on the decision that Seychelles has taken."
Pertinent questions remain:
There were certain questions that still remain unanswered and
presently these evade us.
TODAY asked the VP why he thought that the AU would wait just days before the election to make such a demand on Seychelles. He answered that "I cannot answer that question but that is true. I have been asked this question, but it is within it's (AU's) capacity to do so. It could have done it a month ago," he said.
Pundits were saying that St. Ange had a high chance at winning
and TODAY asked whether there was a correlation between the fact that he stood a chance of winning and the AU request merely days before the election. The VP responded that "there is the possibility, but from this point forward, we want to ensure that this issue does not arise again at a time when Seychelles is attempting to build and reinforce its links with Africa, in commerce, economy, aviation. We cannot overlook this menace," he said.
Asking him whether Seychelles has already been affected by the
AU during the time that St. Ange was campaigning, he said "officially and formally, we have not felt it," he replied.
Another interesting point that TODAY wished for the VP to address was the fact that there have been rumours circulating online and in the Zimbabwe press, accusing St. Ange of having been sent to cause upheaval within the African ranks and that he had been paid to do so. The VP replied "I am unaware of any manoeuvre to destabilise the African Union. No one has any interest to destabilise Africa, especially Europe needs partners with natural resources in abundance... All major economic powers are moving towards Africa - China, Europe and India. I don't have any information but I do not think any reasonable person would think of doing something like that."
It must be noted that Mr. St. Ange had indicated his interest in the position of secretary general ahead of the vote for Zimbabwe
to be the nominee for Africa, "but nothing was formalised from that. I accept that there is a faux-pas which has occurred," commented the VP.
INSET
St. Ange: African Union has blackmailed government
It was apparently a "livid" St. Ange who responded to www.touristwatch.com's questions in Madrid, after learning that the Seychelles government had recalled his nomination on Tuesday, which, Mr. St. Ange said, "was moments after the AU threatened to impose sanctions on Seychelles."
Source: Tourist Watch
It is unclear what those sanctions were or what warranted them but St. Ange believes it was the AU’s intention to force Seychelles out of the race in favour of Zimbabwean candidate Hon. Dr. Walter Mzembi.
“Africa is today losing because of the decisions taken by the African union with a list of measures that will be imposed on Seychelles, which people are saying can be considered as blackmail, knowing full well that Zimbabwe cannot take it.”
He explains, “the sanctions on Zimbabwe by the European community ensures that the world will not accept a man of Mugabe to lead the world of tourism where the same people that have put Mugabe under sanction will be unable to work with him.”
St. Ange is also calling for the UN to disqualify Zimbabwe in fairness. “We (UN) cannot accept a block of countries to exert pressure to remove a genuine candidate. This is blackmail, and blackmail cannot be tolerated. UN should sanction Africa as a whole.”
Alain Raoul Basil Marie St. Ange, who was among the leading
candidates after Georgian candidate H.E. Zurab Pololikashvili, said he is disappointed Africa has lost its only chance at leading the world body. “I believe it is a sad day for Africa because Africa had the chance for the first time ever to lead a world body, now they are loosing the chance because of silly, domineering, dictatorial politics.”
Whoever wins the election will serve a four year term renewable by the recommendation of the executive council at the 22nd UNWTO General Assembly in China in September.

Minister St Ange - it is a good that we did not become In Laws - that young sister of ours can be at time worse than Sophia Loraine/our crazy/mad Seychellois way of talking our Italian Illuminati - she had done wild things - still/We want you to be a very big boy/Lad - please remember an old thread of then Mr Michel Green and my person coming to La Digue and then Cabanne de Anges.  Mr Michel Green could/should have been what President J A Michel became - your great Family know the issues. We turn the clock to 1997 - do a world Wikipedia, those who busted that Mobile Home and Princess Diana Caravn sited, Caple Court Country in spite the court Case at Canterbury County Court and the outcome and the Review for that SIROP at the royal court of Justice £25 million damages/compensation. The Team of young Lawyer Hopkin, Murrey., Beskin then North London and today Judge Ben Chataway at Douhaty Chamber and Mrs Amal Clooney place of work. Among one of the mega bust up reason was the debacle of building that Link between Spain and  Africa/Morocco - those who know what important role we had played in the conception of the Channel Tunnel Project/Nord pas de Calais, the finance - those who pressed that we/I activate that project instead of that Indian Ocean RiM Association debacle - On the Streets of London and Europe then the Market and big finance - I protested and opposed citing that Royal court of Justice case, the UN, EU Justice involvement - what did they do they go the Al Fayad/Kashogi involved and others - I warned and told the Lawyers what was going on - those who knew/well aware of Princess Diana  link to that SIROP program . The Al Fayad/Kashogi all their fortunes and Security knowledge and expertise,  2 Am British Time the Accident in Paris the 13th Pillar and that white Italian Car - they had been killed I wrote to the authorities responsible of the Inquest and the many letters to Al Fayad Family - meanwhile the many books and what have you. In Spain the Government and others - In Morocco, the African Union ex OAU this mega topic and the why. What high Management expertise and capacity it take to derive the Market and big business /Politic forcing them to make take such decision - the many from African Union knowledge - President JA Michel and the current ruler of Morocco, the Chinese and the French and those who started that North African Spring to set Africa back 20 years and that project, the mega exile/refugee flood to Europe and those involved the cost to EU Taxpayers billions, the Britexit  - I was educated in Africa I/we have drank African Beer,  when you work with them if you are not serious then be very careful - my person have worked during the Cold world with very many leading African Heads of State,  the debacle of Jean Bedel Bokassa among others - "I/We are the brother of that young sister you have wanted to chase".
