Epeli Nailatikau confirmed President

Fiji's acting vice-president, Ratu Epeli Nailatikau, has been confirmed as the new President of Fiji.

Nailatikau came into the position in April, after the former President Ratu Josefa Iloilo retired on July 30.

His term in office as president has been sent down at three years.

Fiji's interim prime minister Frank Bainimarama says no vice-president will be appointed.

Bainimarama says Chief Justice Anthony Gates will act on Nailatikau's behalf when he is absent.

It's so nice the way they put it. So and so has become the Pres and in his absence so and so will look after the responsibilities of the Pres. They do not mention that both these persons are thieves.

They don't mention how they robbed a democratically elected Govt to take over these important positions and fill their pockets in the process!

"We wuz robbed", Hey anon at 11.59, get over it!

If your man Lai had been smart, none of this would have happened.

Instead, he set you all up for a big fall and at least 8 years in the political wilderness.

Now we have a member of the Mara clique back as President.

If you don't like that, you've only got yourselves to blame, you and all those twisted Cakobau types who caused this mess in the first place.

Just think. When Epeli's overseas, you've now got a kaivalagi back as Fiji's head of state.

Cheer up. At least we don't need to restore the monarchy anymore.

With the big Ant, we've swapped one queen for another!

@ Anonymous re Gates eligility.

Valid point - unfortunately given the nature of the beast don't believe small legal technicality such as this won't bother them or him.
