Punish failing politicians – Green Party

[From The Local]

Cut defence spending in half, extend parental benefits, create 40,000 new jobs in the public sector and introduce a 35-hour working week: just a few of the causes which Sweden’s Green Party will be fighting for in the forthcoming election.

But perhaps the most interesting proposal in the party’s election manifesto, published on Thursday, is designed to strengthen the public’s hand when it comes to politicians. The Green Party is proposing a ‘citizen’s contract’ to regulate public service.

If service levels do not live up to the promises of politicians, citizens should receive compensation.

Another Candidate For Governor


Another Candidate For Governor
April 18, 2006 at 8:06 am by Elizabeth Benjamin

Malachy McCourt
Author Malachy McCourt plans to formally announce at the end of this month he’s seeking the Green Party line for governor.

He’s probably best known as the brother of Pulitzer Prize-winning author Frank McCourt, although Malachy McCourt is an author in his own right, having penned “A Monk Swimming,? and several other books.

His candidacy is likely old news in Green Party circles, but on April 30 in Huntington, L.I., he will make it official, according to a press release from his campaign manager. Malachy McCourt is running on a platform of promoting peace, ridding New York of nuclear energy, raising disability awareness and abolishing the death penalty.  

It’s a safe bet the Greens are looking to win back their ballot line, which they lost in 2002 when their gubernatorial candidate, Stanley Aronowitz, a little-known CUNY professor, fell several hundred votes short of the 50,000 necessary to keep their official party status.

The Liberal Party, which had backed Andrew Cuomo for governor and was subsequently stuck with him after he dropped out of the running one week before the Democatic primary, and the Right-to-Life Party both also lost their ballot lines in 2002.

The Green Party first won official recognition in New York in 1998 when it ran the late Al “Grandpa? Lewis, of “The Munsters? T.V. show fame, for governor. Lewis received 52,533 votes that year.
