One Fiji Party touted for Bainimarama

Two major announcements from the regime in recent days have been met with strong resistance from both major and minor political parties and democracy groups.

All are rightly denouncing the illegal government's decision to start consultations to replace the 1997 Constitution and the decision to abolish the Great Council of Chiefs.

The fresh and invigoprated debate shows the people of Fiji will not roll over and die and suggest there will be a fight to reclaim the country legitimately in the 2014 elections.

On that note, Coupfourpointfive has been told by insiders there is talk that Frank Bainimarama is being urged to name his new political party One Fiji. Insiders also insist Esala Teleni will be roped in to run Bainimarama's day to day operation while he concentrates on securing a safe exit for himself either as prime minister or president.

A new party has also made its debut. The Fiji First Party (The Neutralising Force), has released a statement denouncing the consultations (see below) and outlining its understanding of the current crisis.

Meanwhile the NFP says it's not convinced about the consultations saying "until we see something better we have no reason to abandon it."


Quote: "Mr Bainimarama’s announcements fall short. We cannot have genuine consultation in a restrictive environment. We need to see immediate steps to remove all impediments such as the plethora of decrees that severely restrict our rights, freedoms and access to the Courts."


The USA based Democracy and Freedom for Fiji Movement (see below) has also nailed it:

"The reason for the political upheaval in 2006 was not due to the constitution but because of the self-interest of Bainimarama. The demand made by Bainimarama in 2006 to the Qarase government never included the amendment or removal of the 1997 constitution.



"Therefore the constitution should be allowed to continue and the Court of Appeal decision of April 2009 be implemented. Any change to the constitution should follow the normal process where individuals are free to express their views and a Parliament approves the changes after wide consultations.


"We feel that the money that is being allocated to this time and money wasting exercise should be diverted to ensure that the services such as health, education and law order are delivered for the benefit of the public."

TRADITIONALLY AND VANUA-MINDED I TAUKEI, ALL TRADITIONAL VANUA OF BATIS (KUBUNA, BUREBASAGA AND TOVATA) AND OTHER DEMOCRATICALLY MINDED CITIZENS...WE ARE GOING NOWHERE AND WE HAVE BEEN PATIENT FOR TOO LONG WITHOUT ANY SIGNS OF A ABOUT-TURN FROM THE MURDERING BAINIMARAMA, SLY TALIBAN KHAIYUM, THE CUNNING MUSLIM TALIBVAN CONNECTIONS WITH NOTHING HEARD FROM THOSE WHO MATTERED IN THE FIJI ARMY (ALL COWARDS AND THIEVES).

IT IS NOW OR NEVER FOR US...IT IS TIME TO SHED BLOOD...IT IS TIME TO PREPARE TO DIE FOR A GOOD CAUSE...WHAT IS 2000 SOLDIERS AGAINST HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS ANGRY CITIZENS...

THINK OF THIS AND PREPARE TO DIE FOR YOUR FUTURE GENERATIONS.

THIS IS THE WAY TO GO NOW.

Haven't I been saying all along that Bainimarama would probably draft Teleni to take over the day to day running of government as his prime minister while he retires in pseudo dignity as Fiji's president? 'The 18th Brumaire of Frank Bainimarama', I call it.

Aiyaz is too thoroughly despised in all corners of society for such a role and will be too busy trying to manipulate the elections. Teleni is a dependable yes-man -- dependable because he is de-fanged now that Driti and Roko Ului are out of the picture.

With the help of C4.5 and an independent Internet voting service, we need to nominate and elect in an online caucus now a multi-party and multi-ethnic unity slate of candidates to oppose Bainimarama with a platform designed to restore Fijians' civil rights, democracy, and self-respect.

I am from Naitasiri and am confident that Taukeis from Naitasiri, Tailevu , Ra, snd Ba who are related traditionally will commit fervently to the support of a turbulent uprising against the military, Bainimarama and his cohorts of collaborators to reclaim Fijians' dugnity, human rights and denocracy.

I will personally lay my life down for the course.

WE look to the Cakobau family and all Kubuna chiefs to lead us to battle.

Tovata and Burebasaga must also joim in. This is our opportunity.

We must not forget to punish the President who has been signing off all the decrees including the one to abolish the GCC - which had refused to endorse his nomination for the top job

RFMF said...

We support the PM bringing in Teleni as many people at camp and Pm office are just there for their pocket and bullshit advisors to Commander.

Being hearing this all the way from last year - Commander please action the recall process.

We have had enough bullshit at the government !!!

I do not understand any of this. Bainimarama stated that he and the army would not stand in any elections.

Anonymous 10:32, I have my own thoughts regarding who should lead, and in time you will know who I endorse. I would first like to hear your thoughts. Who has shown the integrity and ability to lead, and to which offices are they best suited?

We need a process. C4.5 will first need to select an Internet voting service. I'm not pushing any firm in particular. C4.5 should weigh the firm's experience, responsiveness, reputation, technical ability and price, and then make a tentative selection. That selection should be disclosed to the readership and be held open for comment for a period of two weeks. The entire process must be absolutely fair and transparent.

Absent any compelling argument against the firm it provisionally selected, C4.5 next should formally endorse the firm to all friends of Fiji who want to contribute materially to free elections. I anticipate the cost of an online election on a national scale for Fiji to be in the FJD 400,000 range. We'd look to the international community and NGOs to underwite the expense.

The poll would be open for six months, presumably with safeguards to restrict the voting to Fijian citizens only, and with unique identifiers to ensure eligible voters can cast no more than one vote each.

The voting service can advise us regarding the precise modalities for nominating candidates and casting votes.

I pledge not to run, so there can be no question of self-interest. But I do have certain candidates in mind for certain positions. They are from different parties, ethnicities and backgrounds. Some may be surprising. I will make my endorsements public in due course, but first I'd like to hear your thoughts.

Here's a hint, though. I'm looking for the best and the brightest. Bainimarama, Aiyaz and Teleni need not apply.

s/ Dakuwaqa


I pledge that I will seek no political office myself but will give my best efforts to support whoever the people of Fiji freely elect through the on-line poll C4.5 has graciously agreed to facilitate. I will also counsel Fiji's elected leadership on how to wage democratic resistance peacefully or otherwise.

The Kaiviti and Methodists havethe SDL and chiefs as their leaders. Chodry is the Indian leader. The kai Lomas have Mick Beddoes. That leaves maybe 1-2% of population ,,,,,,,,
The question here is who is Bainimarama and Kaiyum or Akuila Yabaki representing when they speaking???
Absolutely only themselves and nobody. This means that these parasites are nothing but wannabee leaders with zero followers,,,,,,JUST SIMPLE PARASITES REALLY.
