Bainimarama in New York for UN meet

Fiji's dictator Frank Bainimarama has left the country to attend the 64th session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York, says Radio Fiji.

According to the state owned station, Bainimarama will address the world leaders on the roadmap to democracy announced in his Strategic Framework for Change in July.

Sources say it will be interesting to see what Bainimarama tells the UN this time,
as circumstances in Fiji have changed compared to an year ago when he addressed the Assembly on 27th September 2008.

In his address last September Bainimarama said his regime was adhering to the Constitution because they recognized it was the supreme law of Fiji. He told the UN about the People's Charter, President's Political Dialogue Forum and requested for assistance from he international community to help Fiji move quickly towards what "genuine democracy".

He told the Assembly proposals in the Peoples Charter like electoral reform would be adopted after achieving broad consensus and the reforms adopted in accordance with the Constitution legally.

He had stated that as a result of adopting reforms, elections could not be held in March 2009 but the regime still believed it must be held as soon as practicably possible.

He is expected to tell world leaders at the UN elections will now be held in September 2014 with work on a new Constitution starting in September 2012 and expected to be completed in an year.

I am surprised that organisations such as the UN keep on entertaining this Dictator. They know that he will continue to defy them and yet they sit and listen to his ramblings as if he represents the people of Fiji!

Please UN he is not accepted as the Leader of this country. Can't you get that into that thick head of yours?

As soon as he opens his mouth at the podium it will remove all doubts to world leaders that he is a pathetic liar and a fool.

Not only a liar but a real NUT!

I wonder what bullshit he'll say there giving all the rosy picture of what is happening in Fiji when things on the ground are the total opposite.

I can't believe what I am reading about Voreqe Bainimarama's leadership style. He continually lies to the people, but with the power of the gun he can even get invited to speak to World leaders at the UN.

This shows me that the UN has lost its core value and principles by supporting an illegal leader who has raped democracy and the Indigenous peoples of their cultural identity.

God save Fiji.
