LONDON nike air max 2017 heren sale , Nov. 19 (Xinhua) -- Romain Grosjean will continue driving for Lotus alongside Pastor Maldonado for another year in 2015, the British constructor announced on Wednesday despite a disappointing past season for him.

The 28-year-old Frenchman joined the team in 2012 and made a highly promising start, but this year he has to date managed only a paltry eight points ahead of the final race of the season in Abu Dhabi.

It will be the fourth season at the team for Grosjean, who placed a career-best seventh in the 2013 championship but is struggling this time around in 14th place going into Sunday's season-ender.

"It is with great pleasure that we can formally confirm that Romain Grosjean will continue with Lotus F1 Team alongside Pastor Maldonado next season," team principal Gerard Lopez said.

Grosjean said he expects a turnaround for the better again in 2015 for Lotus, who will change engine suppliers from Renault to Mercedes.

Maldonado came to Lotus in 2014, taking the place of former world champion Kimi Raikkonen nike air max 2017 kpu kopen , who returned to Ferrari.

Maldonado, who got his first two points of the season at the US race on November 2, had his contract extended in summer.

CHISINAU, Moldova, Nov. 30 (Xinhua) -- Parliamentary elections kick off in Moldova on Sunday as 20 political parties and blocs as well as four independents will contend 101 parliamentary seats.

Under the country's electoral law, the threshold for parliamentary representation is 6 percent of the vote for individual parties, 9 percent for political blocs consisting of two parties nike air max 2017 flyknit dames , 11 percent for blocs formed of three parties or more and 2 percent for independent candidates.

The Communist Party, the Liberal-Democratic Party, the Democratic Party, the Liberal Party and the Socialist Party are expected to enter the new parliament.

According to latest polls, the opposition Communists is in the lead with 19.6 percent, while the three ruling parties -- the Liberal Democratic Party, the Democratic Party and the Liberal Party -- follow with 17.2 percent nike air max 2017 flyknit kopen , 14.2 percent and 8.5 percent respectively.

The newly established pro-Russia Patria Party, which is expected to gain enough votes for parliament seats, was banned Thursday for the race by a local court for illegally using foreign funds in its campaign.

Analysts believe that Patria supporters will now help the Socialists, another pro-Russia party, enter the new parliament. The Socialist Party scored 5.3 percent in the latest polls before Patria was out.

Over 3.22 million Moldovans will be able to vote at about 2,100 polling stations, including 95 abroad. The elections are monitored by over 4 nike air max 2017 rood dames ,000 international and national observers.

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept. 15 (Xinhua) -- After a deadly fire at a religious school in the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur, which killed two teachers and 21 students, more people have called for improved regulation of such schools.

The fire started Thursday morning at the Darul Quran Ittifaqiyah school located at a village about 3 km from the signature Petronas Twin Towers.

Soiman Jahid, deputy director of Fire and Rescue Department, said many of the victims were found dead by the windows on the third floor because they were trapped by the fix grills on the windows. He also said the school, though already registered at the religious authorities nike air max 2017 wit dames , did not acquire necessary fire safety permits.

The number of private tahfiz schools, which teach students to memorize the Quran, are mushrooming in recent years in Malaysia. According to government figures, there were about 1,200 tahfiz schools nationwide, 670 of which are not registered, resulting in lack of regulation.

In April nike air max 2017 wit , an 11-year-old boy from a private religious school in the southern Malaysian state of Johor had to have both of his legs amputated after he was allegedly abused at the facility.

It is not the first time for private schools to get involved with fire accidents. The Star newspaper reported that since 2015, there have been 211 fire accidents involving unregistered and private religious schools in Malaysia.

Mohd Arif Awardi, a staff member of the tahfiz school, who managed to escape from the fire, told Xinhua at the scene that he has not received any fire safety training after he began to work at the school several months ago.

Azeman Abdullah, a local resident from Malacca state, who sent three of his boys to attend a part-time private religious school nike air max 2017 roze paars , said lacking a unified regulation system, in terms of syllabus and fire safety measures, may be a major drawback of such schools.

But he insisted that there are some good examples, for instance the state government doling out more funding for religious studies.

Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak, who is currently visiting Britain, also weighed in on the matter, saying on Friday that the management of tahfiz religious schools in Malaysia should give importance .
