Comment -
Good morning Friends, fellow citizens, brothers, sisters, colleagues - Just as we addressed the issues of Peach Geldorf - her death, the issues of Mr Robert - Bob Crow the RMT Union - development with Mr Ralph Volcer. Given the dynamic, leverage capacity of that SIROP program and our greater EU Community ancestral workings - the process at New DP contributing that Mr Ralph Volcer take/acquire the Leadership - the process of the change and the renaming to SUP - he had wanted to step down after the last election. The issues here is accountability - you just do not use such mechanism and leverage dynamic as and when you choose - there are discipline and benchmarks otherwise we will lend in a highly corrupted system/benchmark as/like in Africa - there have to be continuity - We/I had come to addressed a complete separate issues and saw this news. Namely - the work being done on the old Hunted Pub which have affected working at the White House, the many highly USA Institutions, the UN, the IMF, countless others in the EU - beside yesterday's work the racket the builders on the road have been making with their carbon cutting disc for the road - when the associated rage/rave is overly manipulated what it can trigger then those who accuse Al Kaida, Taliban and others. when it have been triggered by builders using excessive noises. { Would others care to share and inform - the exile/refugee Seychelles community - development}

Leader of one of Seychelles’ opposition parties resigns

Ralph Volcere (Seychelles Nation)



(Seychelles News Agency) - Veteran Seychellois opposition politician, Ralph Volcere, has resigned as the interim leader of one of Seychelles political parties Seselwa United Party (SUP) and as editor of the party’s mouthpiece ‘Le Nouvo Seychelles Weekly’ citing personal reasons.

In a press statement issued this morning Volcere said he tendered his resignation to the party’s steering committee on Monday April 21.

The steering committee of SUP has appointed Robert Ernesta to take over the duties and responsibilities of Volcere as leader of SUP and editor of the weekly political paper.

Speaking to SNA in a phone interview Volcere, who has been involved in politics for the past 30 years, said he has given a lot but feels that the time has come for him to change his stance and stand for values he believes in.

“My policy as a human being is not necessarily a policy a political party would endorse and I feel more and more that my personal values do not qualify me to be a politician because a politician has to protect some and attack some, (…) but I believe that everyone who does something wrong should be exposed especially in a national newspaper," he said.

Volcere stated that he will not leave SUP to join any other political party but that he is choosing to become a private and independent citizen and that he even intends to launch a new newspaper that will be totally independent and not affiliated with any political party or grouping.

“In the coming weeks I will completely remove myself from all political organizations in the country to have an independent voice so people can see me as credible when I start a new publication or a new radio or TV station."

Volcere returned to the Indian Ocean archipelago from exile in the UK in 1991 and has since been a member of several opposition movement in the country.

From the Seychelles national movement he joined the United Opposition before going back to UK in 1998.

He returned to the Seychelles in 2002 and joined the Democratic Party founded by Seychelles’ first President James Mancham to later take leadership of DP in 2009.

In 2011 under the leadership of Volcere DP became the New Democratic Party and in 2013 NDP was replaced by today’s Seselwa United Party.

Letter to the Editor - The overriding importance of national reconciliation

Letter to the Editor - The overriding importance of national reconciliation

21-May-2014
As we move towards the celebration of 50 years anniversary of the SPUP/SPPF/Parti Lepep, I would like to remind the people of Seychelles of what former President France Albert René said on February 22, 2001 in his State of the Nation address, when he described the last 25 years to have been years of peace, happiness and prosperity and also to remind the people of the comments I made with respect to Mr René's concluding remarks.

Conclusion of Mr René's address:
"In these 25 years, we have preserved and nurtured those qualities that make our country and our people among the most peaceful, the happiest and the most humane on earth. Together we have done an excellent job at building the national foundation. Now that we are embarking on a new chapter of our history, we will need more than ever before these very qualities, these very strengths, these very values that we possess in order to succeed.

We will need more than ever before this sense of unity, this sense of fraternity between us. We will need yet more love for Seychelles. It is for this reason that I have dedicated the year 2001 as the year of solidarity in Seychelles.

By solidarity, I mean the unity that should exist among us, the dedication of our country, the perpetual promotion of the culture of peace and the will to pull together for Seychelles.
That Seychellois brothers and sisters is the key for our happiness and our country."

The comments I made:
"It was certainly very comforting to hear the President speaking about more love for Seychelles, more of the spirit of 'caring and sharing', more about unity, more about fraternity and about the need to promote perpetually a culture of peace.

But Mr President, let us face history for what it has been. These last 25 years have not been totally years of peace, happiness and prosperity. Let us not forget that after the unconstitutional coup d'état of 1977, there was a lot of turmoil within the Nation, which resulted in many people leaving this beautiful country for other land; let us not forget that there was a mercenary invasion with loss of life; let us not forget that this was followed by a military mutiny with also loss of life - and also another attempted coup by some who were once your close collaborators.

Mr President, we have just gone through a few weeks dominated by events organised by your Government to celebrate the 25th anniversary of our Independence. Those were grandiose events, with firework displays as colourful and impressive as those put out by some of the most prosperous Nations in the world. Unfortunately, those who organised these events were not motivated to promote your idea of a culture of peace, of more love, more harmony and more fraternity within the Nation. As it turned out, the whole exercise was a massive party political propaganda - when in fact the occasion should have been utilised to demonstrate what we have achieved together within the spirit of 'National Reconciliation'.

On Thursday June 28, 2001, you delivered a speech to the Nation to mark the 25th anniversary of our Independence. Unfortunately, this became a partisan exercise when you chose to speak on the historically controversial circumstances surrounding the birth of our Nation 25 years ago. For these reasons, we are sad that the Government did not utilise the occasion to display overtly its appreciation for the policy of reconciliation, which constitute the base of the existing stability upon which tomorrow's and today's stability must be based. Instead, a concert had been quietly organised to promote partisan politics to such an extent that the Protocol Office thought it best to suggest that I did not turn up for the event. Thus, I was forced to remain at home to view the perfidy on television - with my mind and soul telling me that the future of our Nation would have been better served if Mr René and I had been projected shaking hands, less concerned about our controversial past and more interested in forging ahead in the spirit of harmony and solidarity. Perhaps if that had happened, I could have allowed myself to sing "Belle manman mette ou gros jupe, desann pour lendepandans, belle mamzel mette zotte robe pour faire lake pour lendepandans."

Mr President, we in the Democratic Party see ourselves serious when we speak about reconciliation and the involvement in the promotion of a 'culture of peace.' Thus, we have agreed to respect the Structure of State and to provide you with all due respect as Head of our Nation and secondly, to adhere faithfully to the concept that dirty linens should be washed within the family. It must not be forgotten that prior to my return from exile, we had in London, "The Crusade for the Restoration of Democracy in Seychelles" and that one of the activities of this Movement was to issue news releases which put under microscope all negative aspects of the Government in Seychelles.

Mr President, you command today a structure and a political machinery, which is all powerful and which is backed by substantial resources to such an extent that there will be no unity and fraternity in this Nation unless you wish it to be so. I would be making a laughing stock of my philosophy of 'National Reconciliation' if I was not to spell out this point today. The SPPF Government may claim to have achieved many things for the country and its people, but history will not see it in a good light if it fails to achieve what is the most important element of national well-being - the unity of the Seychellois people. It was former Prime Minister of France who declared that modern politics must be founded on reactivating the duty of fraternity.

"What is politics and the management of a country all about?" Former Prime Minister Edouard Balladur asked.

"It is about national unity which must be based on the sentiment and duty of fraternity amongst one and all. This is what gives value and respect to the politics of any country..."

"C'est le sens que nous devons donner a nos actions....inlassablement faire en sorte que ce sentiment de fraternité nationale inspire le comportement et anime nos résolutions."

James R. Mancham
