PRESIDENT DONALD JOHN TRUMP PINS HIS HOPES ON DESIGNATING US AS WORLD BEST TOURIST DESTINATION

With the inauguration of the 45th President Washington gets in a festive mood and tourism industry starts garnering hopes.

 

As Donald John Trump is taking office, he promised a bright future for US tourism: getting the country on World Best Tourism Destination list, making historical cities on Eastern Coast of United States to be recognized as World Capital of Culture, all are on the to do list of the new administration drafted by the new President on his first day in office, writes European Journal of Tourism Washington correspondent.

United States President Donald Trump and Kingdom of Cambodia Prime Minister, Academician HUN SEN (Cambodia has won WORLD BEST TOURIST DESTINATION status in 2016)

 

But the analysts are not so convinced that Trump effect on tourism will be this positive. The Telegraph ask the readers : Who will visit an America ruled by Donald Trump? – and make a prophecy that not too many.

The New York Times in a central editorial make`s the same point: What Impact Will Trump Have on Tourism?

 

The analysis result sounds cautious: new immigration procedures that make the customs and border process harder, the scrutiny of particular groups of people); and the perception of how welcoming and safe (or not) the United States is are growing to weigh heavily on the future of US tourism.

 

trump-and-tourism

Donald Trump promises that he will put his managerial skills in the benefit of world tourism.

 

Others cited in the article are right a way tenebrous: attendees at the World Travel Market London conference were coming up and “offering condolences.”( Gary Leff).

 

The list of worries on tourism faith under Donald Trump is long and wide spanning from: banning of minority groups, hostile policies towards Middle Eastern travellers, Cuban policy, US dollar strength in ratings, air fares tariffs, immigration policies and what role the Trump hotels will have in the great scheme of things.

Tourism is all about optimism and confidence and the new US President Donald Trump Jr. promised in his inaugural address that: hee will make US a World Best Tourist Destination country and a great country for all !

Let`s wait and see! The competition is still open after all!

  2. Empowering citizens to participate in the decision-making process through development of local governance. Giving more powers to the private sector and self-regulated organizations, especially when it comes to activities that are not typically performed by the state.

  3. Independent budgets for local government will be introduced in rural areas, auyls, villages, and towns. Mechanisms will be put in place to allow citizens to participate in discussing the best way to spend the budget.

  4. Strengthening the role of public councils under state agencies and Akims. They will discuss the implementation of strategic plans and regional development programs, as well as budgets, reports, achieving stated objectives, draft legal acts concerning rights and freedoms of citizens and draft program documents. Legally establishing these public councils will enhance transparency of state decision­making.

  5. Establishment of a state institution “government for citizens” that will become a single provider of state services and will be based on the example of Canada service and centre link in Australia. This institution will integrate all public service centers into a single system. International certification of state services according to ISO 9000 quality management standards.

KAZAKHSTAN 2015 ELECTIONS: THE LESSONS OF A DEMOCRATIC EXERCISE by Professor Dr. Anton Caragea MA, FINS, PhD

Supervising the elections in any country in the world is a momentous and difficult task and not to be taken lightly.

You have to observe the present, but with responsibility for the future and impartiality in your heart.

Election supervision

Professor Dr. Anton Caragea supervising election in Kazakhstan-26 April 2015

If you are supervising elections in Kazakhstan, the heart of Central Asia, the task is doubled in significance, as Kazakhstan has become an example in the world.

 

Kazakhstan has carved himself in the centre of international politics, the host of international meetings destined to bring peace and dialogue in the world, the place where technology and tradition meets and the mediator between developed and developing countries, a place where East and West can build a bridge for dialogue.

Observing elections in such a key country it is an honourable and full of seriousness assignment.

For all this reasons, the invitation offered to me, on behalf of Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Kazakhstan, to observe the elections in the country, as an international observer, was a very challenging one, but nothing has prepared me for the phenomenon I was about to witness.

In Kazakhstan, on 26 of April 2015 I was witnessing the maturity exam of a people.

Born only in 1991, on the ruins of former Soviet Union, Kazakhstan was a young nation, a country only developing his democratic institutions and credentials.

After the early presidential elections held on 26 April 2015, we can safely conclude that this stage was phased out.

With a record presence at poll, of over 95%, people of Kazakhstan proved, without a shadow of a doubt, their commitment to free and fair elections, to build and uphold a democratic society.

While other nations are struggling to bring their electors to the urns and millions of voters disappointed by corruption and state inefficiency are feeling disenfranchised, in developing Kazakhstan millions of electors proved that democracy is not just an empty word to find in the political text books, but a living reality.

I have the pleasure of seeing the people of Kazakhstan taken their future in their hands and voting for their future development, for practical solutions, for experience to weather out the economic storm that is rummaging the world.

The elections in Kazakhstan where not just a democratic exercise, but they where the proof that the peoples power really exist and if the citizens are feeling involved in the economic, social and cultural life of their country, if the state is not failing them and provides the social benefits expected the people will respond partaking in the electoral process.

In the economic and political failed states of the world we can see the reduction of election attendance, the disinterest of the citizens and the broken down of the social contract that Rousseau and French revolutionaries had considered as the fundamentals of the state.

 President Anton Caragea on International Press ConferenceProfessor Dr. Anton Caragea meets the international press in Almaty, unveiling the election monitoring mission results

 

Kazakhstan state is honouring his social contract with his citizens and the response is this huge electoral participation.

95% electoral attendance can be a mystery in states where citizens are isolated and oppressed, but this is a reality in a functional nation.

In Kazakhstan, the 2015 elections where a national plebiscite in which the people decided above anything else their future.

I have observed this reality as hundreds of thousand of peoples turn out to vote accompanied by children’s and small infants, as they realized that it is not so much a vote for next few years, but a vote for future, for peace, for continuous democratic development and economic achievements.

Kazakhstan’s 2015 elections where undoubtedly democratic in nature, where fair and crystal clear transparent and where offering a few refreshing news for everybody.

On the fore is the news that democracy can be a real practice, can involve a nation that is educated and convinced of his role in history.

At the same time it was proven the fact that: governments and peoples are not confrontational actors on political arena, but they can cooperate to build a powerful country.

26 of April 2015 early presidential elections of Kazakhstan where the irrefutable proof of this self evident truth: that democracy can only work when all the people are involved.

FINAL REPORT (post-election) REGARDING

SNAP PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION IN REPUBLIC OF KAZAKHSTAN 

 

  1. INTRODUCTION

According to an official invitation from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Republic of Kazakhstan to observe the 26 April 2015 snap presidential election, the Institute of international Relations and Economic Cooperation decided to evaluate the political, judicial, legislative and general framework of the early presidential election from 26 April 2015.

 The aim of the evaluation process was to assess the pre-election environment and the preparations for the presidential election.

The evaluation process comprised in legislative text analyses, assessment of general political situation in the country and the conformity with general accepted democratic practices and regulation and with bona fide principles.

Taken into account were also: public opinions, statements and discussions expressed by officials from different Kazakhstan institutions and the election and civil administration, as well as official spokespersons from political parties, media outlets, civil society personalities, and the international community.

  1. GENERAL ASSESSMENT OF LAW PROVISIONS

According with the law prescriptions the presidential vote will start on 26 April 2015, giving the voters the chance to elect the president for a five-year term.

The law encapsulates also the necessary democratic prescriptions for an open and fair electoral process.

 The April 26, 2015 election will be the fourth consecutive national election called on early bases, a supplementary proof of a democratic and viable electoral system.

The laws that are governing the presidential elections are governed by the Constitution, the Constitutional Law on Elections (Election Law), and regulations of the Central Election Commission (CEC).

The assessment process considered that Kazakhstan is a viable and fully committed party to all major international and regional instruments related to the holding of democratic elections and had continuously and full abiding by his international democratic regulations.

There have been no changes to the Election Law since the last elections held in 2011, and we have to mention that in 2011 the Election Monitoring Committee of Institute of international Relations and Economic Cooperation had find that the law and regulation governing the electoral process in Kazakhstan are completely corresponding to international laws and regulation insuring a perfect electoral process.

 The authorities Kazakhstan authorities underlined in all public statements their nation commitment to conduct elections in compliance with the principles of openness, transparency and fairness.

 The election will be administered by a complex and modern system of commissions, composed of Central Electoral Commission and including number of  14 Territorial Election Commissions and the City Election Commissions for Astana`s and Almaty`s regions, 207 District Election Commissions, and more than 9,000 Local Election Commissions (LECs).

The Central Electoral Commission composition and activity is fully independent and in perfect correspondence with international laws and regulations insuring the independence of electoral and monitoring process.

In the list of democratic provisions the Election Monitoring Committee of Institute of international Relations and Economic Cooperation noted:

The fact that all citizens over 18 years of age have the right to vote, there is a nationwide electronic voter list to identify duplicate entries.

Presidential candidates are required to be citizens by birth, at least 40 years old, fluent in the state language, and officially resident in Kazakhstan for at least 15 years.

The same recommendation is made on this element as in 2011: The Election Monitoring Committee of Institute of international Relations and Economic Cooperation considers necessary a general recommendation for all states to include such provisions in their electoral laws insuring a perfect national representations to the highest office of the land.  

The Election Law guarantees the right to conduct an unimpeded campaign for or against any candidate.

In the democratic landscape of Kazakhstan, the Election Monitoring Committee of Institute of international Relations and Economic Cooperation noted the existence of a powerful independent media, with an impressive number of mass media entities operating in the country.

Also a full independent television network is offering a perfect dialogue and information source.

The Kazakhstan Constitution guarantees freedom of speech and prohibits censorship.

Keeping in mind that no elections can be considered as free and democratic without the presence of international observers the Election Monitoring Committee of Institute of International Relations and Economic Cooperation decided to support Kazakhstan electoral process and democratic credential by monitoring and observing all stages of the 2015, 26 April Early Presidential Election in Kazakhstan.

 

The Election Monitoring Committee of Institute of International Relations and Economic Cooperation has monitored the full electoral process, candidate registration, and the campaign, media, and Election Day procedures with an on-site mission between 22-29 April 2015.

III. ELECTION CLIMATE ANALYSES

  1. FACT FINDING

Kazakhstan is a fully flagged democratic republic, respecting the equilibrium of powers and balanced distribution of constitutional powers.

The president is acting in full respect of the democratic system and the country has a long tradition of political process in a democratic manner and with all the guarantees for an inclusive and democratic process.

The institutional system is offering a perfect balanced voice to parliamentary and representations system.

The 26 April 2015 Early Presidential Election where convened in a perfect transparent and inclusive manner at the request of the highest representative and democratic institution in the country: Assembly of people of Kazakhstan.

The decision was upheld fully constitutional and legal based by the Constitutional Council.

The democratic initiative for an early presidential election was supported by the Kazakhstan Parliament and, on 25 February, the Kazakhstan President announced the election would be held on 26 April.

As we have mentioned previously the next election will be the fourth consecutive national election to be called early.

On 27 February, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Kazakhstan stressed the nation’s commitment to conduct a free and fair election in line with the principles of openness, transparency and fairness.

The Election Monitoring Committee of Institute of international Relations and Economic Cooperation considers that the electoral process is fundamental, in law provisions and spirit and in technical consideration perfectly administered, offering a perfect climate and an open and inclusive and in full fairness  political discourse resulted in a perfect competitive electoral environment.

  1. LEGAL FRAMEWORK

Regarding the previous respect to democratic commitments, the Republic of Kazakhstan has fully respected his international obligations regarding construction of a free electoral consultation.

We must note that: European Council on International Relations has made an in-depth analysis of the electoral law and constitutional framework of the Republic of Kazakhstan during 2011 Kazakhstan Presidential elections.

The focus of this analysis where: the mass media law, the election law, the political laws and the Constitutional Law of Kazakhstan and had operated a surveillance of the measure taken by the Central Electoral Commission in order to insure a free and open election atmosphere.

The conclusion of the European Council on International Relations monitoring commission was that: the necessary steps in order to insure an honest and balanced electoral consultation respecting democratic standards were taken by Government of Kazakhstan.

The European Union monitoring mission insured also the Election Day supervision, the supervision of counting and tabulation of elections results in a significant and representative number of sections and commissions.

The conclusions of the committee findings can be summon up as an endorsement of the law and constitutional provisions of Kazakhstan electoral system.     

 

In the 26 April 2015 the same principles and laws are applying as in 2011 elections case.

The primary legal framework for presidential elections includes the Constitution, the Constitutional Law on Elections (Election Law), and regulations of the Central Election Commission (CEC). Other relevant laws include the Law on the President, the Law on Political Parties, the Civil Procedures Code, the Criminal Code, the Administrative Offences Code, the Law on Peaceful Assemblies, and various local regulations related to public assemblies. Kazakhstan is a party to major international and regional instruments related to the holding of democratic elections

 The president is directly elected by popular vote in a two-round system.

To be elected in the first round of voting, a candidate must receive more than half of all votes cast.

If no candidate reaches the required majority, the two candidates receiving the most votes contest a second round within two months of the first round, in which the candidate who receives the higher number of votes is considered elected.

 A 2007 constitutional amendment reduced the presidential term from seven to five years and exempted the first president – the incumbent President Nazarbayev – from the established limit of two consecutive terms.

 In 2010, the first president was given the privileged legal status of Kazakhstan’s „Leader of the Nation” according to a parliamentary vote and respecting the constitutional framework, in a fully law abiding manner.

 The incumbent president has been in office since 1991 and had a proven history of respecting the democratic rule of political process and respecting constitutional and legal boundaries.

  1. ELECTION SUPERVISIONS AND ADMINISTRATION

The election will be administered by a four-layer system of election commissions. The election administration comprises the CEC, 14 Territorial Election Commissions and the City Election Commissions of Astana and Almaty (collectively referred to as TECs), 207 District Election Commissions (DECs), and more than 9,000 Local Election Commissions (LECs) including some 65 polling stations abroad.

The Republic of Kazakhstan had acquiesce to the fallowing instrumental accords for up-holding democratic values: the 1966 International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, 1979 Convention for Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women, 1965 International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination, 2003 Convention against Corruption, 2006 Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities,, and the 2002 Convention on the Standards of Democratic Elections, Electoral Rights and Freedoms in the Member States of the Commonwealth of Independent States.

Kazakhstan is also a fully flagged member of the Council of Europe’s Venice Commission, a supplementary proof of the country definitive election of the democratic ways.

Membership and submission to all the previously noted agreements and treaty are creating a perfect election environment in accordance with international laws.

  1. PROCEDURES FOR CANDIDATE NOMINATION AND REGISTRY

The Constitution and electoral law are offering the climate for an inclusive and representative participation in the electoral race: the presidential candidate may be nominated through self-nomination or by a public association, including a political party.  All equally candidates are required to be citizens by birth, to have at least 40 years old, to be fluent in the Kazakh language (a condition to be observed by the Linguistic Commission, an independent body that should provide its conclusions to the Central Electoral Commission who will make the final decision on candidatures), and to be an officially resident of Kazakhstan for at least 15 years.

The nomination period that had ended on 15 March 2015 had permitted for three candidates to outline their candidature and obtain at least 93,000 valid signatures equally representing at least two-thirds of the regions as well as the cities of Astana and Almaty.

In addition they need to pay an election deposit of 1,060,000 Kazakhstan Tenge (KZT) and present tax declarations for themselves and their spouse.

The necessary prescriptions for barring from standing for office for persons related to crimes of found guilty of corruption-related crimes or administrative offences have being taken.

The language test consists of an examination of prospective candidates‟ reading, writing and speaking abilities.

Three candidates will run in the upcoming early presidential elections in Kazakhstan after law provisions: the incumbent President Nursultan Nazarbayev, the challenger from the Communist People’s Party Turgun Syzdykov and self-nominee Abelgazi Kusainov, according to a report from the Central Election Commission.

The time for submission of applications for participation in the presidential election in Kazakhstan ended on March 15.

According to the CEC secretary Bakhyt Meldeshov, as of 2015, March 16, the CEC got 27 applications.

The CEC decided to refuse registration to Limana Koishiyeva, Kanat Turageldiyev, Zharylkap Kalybai and Khasen Kozha-Akhmet, who all successfully passed the Kazakh language but failed to provide all the law required documents.

The CEC also denied registration to six candidates for the presidency of Kazakhstan for failing to appear for the Kazakh language exam which is mandatory under the law): self-nominees Yakobzhan Dzhunisbekov, Kairat Maishev, Aigul Utepova, Kanat Yeszhanov, Amantai Kazhy and Birzhan Dilmagambetov.

Mels Yeleusizov, Zhaksybai Bazilbayev and Mukhamedrakhim Kursabayev withdrew their candidacies on their own, a move the CEC approved.

The registration of candidates came to an end on March 25.

As of 2015 March 26, three candidates have the right to proceed with the election campaigning: Nursultan Nazarbayev, Turgun Syzdykov and Abelgazi Kusainov.

Conclusion:  Under the full scrutiny of the democratic process in Kazakhstan, The  Election Monitoring Committee of Institute of international Relations and Economic Cooperation considers that the period of registrations of candidature and the provisions of the law have being full respected and all the necessary procedural steps have being address insuring a perfect democratic character to the first phase of the election procedures.
