Paraguay candidate with ties to dictatorship set for presidency 22.4.2018 General News
The US-educated son of a top aide to Paraguay's late dictator is favourite to win today's presidential election in one of Latin America's poorest countries. Opinion polls give Mario Abdo Benitez of the ruling conservative Colorado party a clear lead over his centrist opponent, Efrain Alegre, in a two-horse race to succeed outgoing conservative President Horacio Cartes. Polling stations opened at 7 am and are due to close at 4 pm. Landlocked Paraguay -- sandwiched between Bolivia, Argentina and Brazil -- has enjoyed consistent economic growth under tobacco magnate Cartes, but has failed to shrug off persistent poverty, corruption and drug trafficking. It remains a land of contrasts, still marked by the 1954-1989 dictatorship of General Alfredo Stroessner.

Irish premier launches bid to overturn abortion restrictions 21.4.2018 General News
Ireland's premier has urged his country to show compassion as he launched a campaign to overturn some of Europe's strictest abortion rules. Prime Minister Leo Varadkar said today that Ireland's May 25 referendum on whether to lift a constitutional ban on most abortions is an opportunity to "put compassion at the center of our laws." He said the current restrictions do not prevent abortions, but "just lets us sweep it under the carpet." Abortion in largely Catholic Ireland is legal only in rare cases when a woman's life is in danger. Thousands of Irish women travel each year to get abortions in neighboring Britain. Voters will be asked whether they want to retain or repeal the constitutional ban. If it's repealed, parliament would be responsible for creating new abortion laws.
