Bainimarama: PER will be lifted but public order will be maintained

PRESSING THE FLESH: Bainimarama tries his hand at being a statesman.

Confirmation the Public Emergency Regulations will be lifted a short time ago via an announcement from the self-appointed prime minister, Frank Bainimarama, in his New Year's address. Bainimarama says the PER will be lifted next Saturday, January the 7th. Coupfourpointfive tipped yesterday the regime leader was about to remove the emergency regulations which have allowed the unelected government to control the country for two years, along with illegal decrees.
A short time ago, Bainimarama announced in a televised state address the PER was at last being lifted in a bid to facilitate  consultations on the new constitution. The 'consulations' are expected to start next month. But the illegal leader made it clear the regime will continue to run the country with a tight rein. While the PER, which was introduced in April in 2009 will be removed, the regime intends to mantain what it says is public order.

According to Bainimarama, as the country moves foward, Fijians must be vigilant and not allow a few to dictate the destiny of our country for their own selfish needs. "My fellow Fijians, I am painfully aware...": Read the address in full below.



2012 New Years Message

Prime Minister Commodore Josaia Voreqe Bainimarama
My fellow Fijians, it is with much pleasure that I extend to all of you my warmest wishes as we begin this New Year. I also extend best wishes to all of our friends in the region and to all of you who are visiting our beautiful island nation.

I look forward with anticipation to this coming year as a time of further progress.

My fellow Fijians we have been in the process of establishing a nation that truly empowers all Fijians. My government has been and will continue to provide tools to improve our daily lives and fulfil your ambitions. It is also important that we have the tools to compete with our peers in the international community.

Modernization, the removal of institutionalized discrimination, addressing corruption and the ability to think outside traditional prejudices could not have taken place without your assistance and collaboration. The success of these policies is a testimony of your commitment to a modern, just and liberal Fiji.

All of us must continue to come together in this New Year to help our nation realize its great potential. We must all work in concert to improve the lives of all Fijians, at every level – the poor, the marginalized, the land owners, the farmers, the businessmen and women, the small traders, potential investors, employees, rural dwellers, city dwellers, those in the islands, women, the homeless, the disabled and our youth.

 
As I announced in my budget address, with the tax reforms, Fijians will have 53.1 million dollars more in their hands from 2012. You must use this additional money wisely. Think about the future. Think long term.

 
Indeed the entire tax structure is also being reformed to stimulate foreign investment, small business growth, to create more jobs and look after those on the margins of our society.

 
We will dedicate more funding to further improve our educational and social programs. We will commit more funds to provide better health care facilities while creating awareness of the merits of healthy living.

 
You will also see improved access in telecommunications, with more people being connected to mobile phones, internet and at affordable pricing.

 
Our focus on infrastructure development will continue. Roads, bridges, airports, street lighting, access to water and electricity will continue to be built and improved.

 
The private sector including small businesses will continue to get access to improved tools and a conducive environment to help grow our economy further.

 
My fellow Fijians I am painfully aware that for decades, Fiji was mismanaged and hindered by greed and selfishness. Fiji has changed. We must however be vigilant. Corruption and prejudice must not be permitted in our modern nation. You and I must not allow a few to dictate the destiny of our country for their own selfish needs.

 
Therefore, when the consultations for the new constitution commences in 2012 your must think responsibly. You must think of and for the future.

 
There are certain features of the new constitution that will be non-negotiable. The constitution must establish a government that is founded on an electoral system that guarantees equal suffrage – a truly democratic system based on the principle of one person, one vote, one value; We will not have a system that will classify Fijians based on ethnicity; and, Our young men and women, those 18 years old must have the right to vote.

 
I will in the next few weeks announce the nationwide consultation process which will commence in February 2012.
To facilitate this consultation process, the Public Emergency Regulations will cease from 7 January 2012.

 
We must all remember that public order, protecting the vulnerable and safeguarding the economy will always be paramount. We must also as a nation be intolerant of those that seek refuge and political power in religious, ethnic and communal divisions.

 
My fellow Fijians, we can only achieve success if all of us take part in the modernising of Fiji and if we think nationally.
All Fijians are and must be one. 2012 is going to be a time of further empowerment. 2012 is going to be a time for greater accomplishment for our nation and our people.

 
I wish all of you - citizens, friends and visitors - a happy and successful New Year.

  6. Bai talks about Fijians must be vigilant and not allow a few to dictate the destiny of our country for their own selfish needs.

    How about preaching this to his very own Aiyaz asshole and the goons like Aunty Nur that is filling their own pockets.

    Bai is such a hypocrite. He needs to look at himself in the mirror before making such statement.

    Fiji is going down the drain very fast. Something needs to be done to remove the thugs. ASK needs to go. And go now!!!

  10. Sounds very much like a campaign speech but very contradictory. He must be referring to him and his goons running the show by force when he said "...Fiji was mismanaged and hindered by greed and selfishness." Look at the number of ministerial posts he and iarse are hogging. Why not let others share the job and money that goes with it. Not the pig he is plain greedy.

    all wrong?People do change and he
    may have done that after 5 or 6 years at the helm, who would want to run a Government, considering allthe bad karma coming from coup 4.5every day? I'm sure he's had enoughof it and even a sane person, would have done the same?

  13. We're politically pretty much back to where we were at the time of the Abrogation, except that Bainimarama's intimidation tactics are now better known, his intentions to rule indefinitely are now more clear, and the FLP is no longer serving as his political foil. Everything he does now to establish himself as president for life, Bainimarama could have accomplished through the President's Political Dialogue Process, before, on Aiyaz's advice, he scuttled it. The only question now is whether he will stand for election, and steal the ballot, or use a rigged constitutional process to get what he wants. If he chooses the former, he will need to jettison Aiyaz in order to appeal more to voters. If he chooses the latter, he might well opt to seal his power by executing Aiyaz instead. If Aiyaz understands the end game, he will negotiate a Golden Parachute now, while he still can.

  14. Mr Frank Bainivuaka the Illegal Self Appointed Arsehole of a PM. Everyone in Fiji knows that You're a Conman, Greedy-Bastard, Evil Dictator, Women Beater, Compulsive Liar, Son of Satan, Womeniser, Money Grabbing Devil, Tortourer and Murderer...

    You're just a wolf in sheep's clothing... All Dictators been overthrown around the world like in Tunisia, Yemen, Egypt, Libya and Syria last year... Bainivuaka your days are numbered in 2012 you EVIL LYING BASTARD!!! Burn in Hell...

  15. After wrecking so many families by indiscriminantly sacking people.
    And wrecking other families by their foolish interference in businesses eg FHL and FNPF, Voreqe thinks we are just going to forget everything and be nice to him.
    Never!
    This man is evil and must be punished.
    God expects us to deal with evil and not turn a blind eye to it.
    Bainimarama and Aiyaz and all these cowards perpetrating these atrocities must not get away with it.
    God expects us to dish out the judgement and we must do it.

    Well writtern well set up and most of all a lot of VESU MONA speech.Folks be careful about these bloody media disguise reporting It has done a lot of damages by reporting all the good things been done in Fiji rather than the bad side of things.Almost 100% of the civil servants that came to watch the rugby world cup in NZ said axactly the opposite of the scenerio we are reading out from these media outlets.I used to think that Ratu Sir Lala Sukuna was gifted in many ways by protecting the Fijians but I have to put my hat off for this Kaiyum for dismantling it and also my thought about Rt Sir Lala Sukuna and the Fijians.They are both lawyers by trade but the only diffrence is that Kaiyum used a puppet (PM) and bunches of monkeys (soldiers) to carry out his dream while Rt Sukuna did it because he was the one and truly Fijian chief looking after his own people.
    Anyway wishing all the Fijians (itaukei I mean) and our brother Fijians (Indians I mean) the best greeding of the season.

    Vore & Co (especially Vore)aren't going anywhere until some sort of indemnity clause is devised for others not directly implicated & involved in some pretty serious human rights allegations.

  23. Every one around the world can see this is a total farce. They are fooling no one. Dictators are all about keeping Power and keeping the people oppressed with no opportunity to express their Opposition in the Media, fair Elections or even Privately.

    Don't Be Fooled by the PER Being Lifted - Tis All a Sham
    by Sai Lealea

    The signalled lifting of the much hated Public Emergency Regulations (PER) by the Dictator Bainimarama is all a sham. It is simply designed to curry favour with the people of Fiji to think they are actually having their stolen and repressed rights and freedom restored. In fact far from it!

    All that were prohibited under the PER are now well and truly embedded in the Media and Crimes Decrees. In fact this sham lifting exercise could have been done as soon as the two decrees were in place. The only difference now - people will be able to challenge in court any charges against them that were previously included in the PER. It is a globally recognised fact that Bainimarama is mentally too slow to fathom this due to his obsessive paranoia against criticism and fear for his life (remember the tavioka patch dash!). It probably took QORVIS to be paid $40,000 a month to point this out to him.

    People of Fiji can still be expected to be questioned, harassed, molested and detained under the so called "public order" reference in the Dictator's televised speech. Why is this? Because Fiji will still be a dictatorship and the Dictator Bainimarama will still make the rules against any act he personally does not like.
    So do not ever be fooled by this attempt by the Dictator to be seen to be restoring rights and freedom. Because the only way this can be achieved is when the current military regime steps aside and allow a civilian interim regime to take Fiji back to democracy.
    And we do not need another Constitution because we currently have one - One Dictator Bainimarama just does not like, not the people of Fiji.

    In the meantime Fiji and its people will continue to languish under the dictatorial and tyrannical whims of one megalomaniac. Do not forget Dictator Bainimarama's sole intention in all this is survival at all cost to avoid jail for the murders, theft and pillage of Fiji's state resources.

    Bainimarama has tasted power and no doubt loved it so much. He will therefore fight tooth and nail to keep it until he is unceremoniously tossed out, the way all dictators eventually go.

  28. Lifting the PER will not be the end of the dictatorship. As you says the government will want to retain its grip on power and will look to the courts to impose and maintain what it says is public order.
