Bainimarama and Khaiyum spinning different election yarns

Earfare
What's really going on with the election plans for 2014 - or whenever?

Cut to Suva a few weeks ago and
the Engaging With The Pacific gathering and the illegal leader Frank Bainimarama pitching the Strategic Framework for Change and saying voter awareness campaigns have been underway for the past few months.
 

Bainimarama also told the group, pilot voting booths have already been established around the country.  


Cut to Suva again today, and the Bainimarama appointed attorney general, Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum, is informing diplomatic crops that "voter awareness and electoral systems obviously will be carried out once a system has been decided through the consultation process".

Today's gathering had Khaiyum and the regime appointed solicitor general, Christopher Pryde, bringing diplomats up to speed on the electoral steps being taken toward the 2014 elections. The key message? That voter registration will start in January.


So which gathering got the true facts? Bainimarama's ready assurances to the Melanesian delegates or Khaiyum's to the diplomatic corps? Or neither?

The head of Fiji’s Trades Union Congress says the apparent drafting of an employment decree by a New York law firm at the request of an airline chief may be a first for Fiji.

His comments follow the leak of the firm’s itemised 24,000 US dollar invoice for three months work to the coupfourpointfive blog.

The documents show Air Pacific’s CEO, David Pflieger, commissioned the Essential National Industries Employment Decree from the US legal firm, Milbank, Tweed, Hadley and McCloy earlier this year.

Felix Anthony says private companies have no role in writing laws, which should be properly considered by an elected government.

Mr Anthony says the move is extremely unethical and warrants Mr Pflieger’s immediate dismissal.

“This is probably the first time in Fiji’s history that we have had lawyers sitting on the other side of the world drafting decrees or laws that would affect the people of Fiji. This only clearly demonstrates the dictatorial nature of the government in Fiji. And the fact that there is absolutely no accountability or transparency in this process.”

Mr Anthony says there has been no consultation with the people in Fiji, nor with the workers of Fiji.

The decree has been widely criticised, including by the International Labour Organisation.

The interim regime has refused to comment about its role in procuring the decree for which Air Pacific was billed at an hourly rate of just under 1,000 US dollars.

Air Pacific has declined to comment while its minority stake holder, Qantas of Australia, says it wants no involvement in the matter, adding that Air Pacific runs a separate operation.

MILITARY OFFICERS, SOLDIERS AND SUPPORTERS OF BAINIMARAMA AND KHAIYUM HAS NO CONCERN NOR HAVE ANY SLIGHT VALUE OVER THE HUMAN LIVES AND WELFARE AND FUTURE OF INDIVIDUAL CITIZENS OF FIJI!

THEY JUST THINK OF THEMSELVES!

CONTRADICTING MESSAGES INDICATES THE MISCOMMUNICATION BETWEEN AG & BAINIMARAMA.......THEY ARE COMPETING ON THE DECISION MAKING ROLE.

AG KHAIYUM A CUNNING CORRUPT EVIL PERSON

BAINIMARAMA A HALF EDUCATED COWARD CORRUPT PERSON
