FLP launches eleventh hour appeal to thwart political decree

The Fiji Labour Party is filing its appeal against the regime's political party decree this afternoon.

Sources have confirmed the party is also re-registering but under protest, so it doesn't prejudice the court action. 


The Political Parties (Registration, Conduct, Funding and Disclosures) Decree requires all of Fiji's political parties to re-register with a required five thousand members, spread across the different divisions. 


Rajendra Chaudhry, the son of the FLP leader, Mahendra Chaudhry, had said earlier the appeal was being filed on behalf of the parties.


Chaudhry said he was engaging the services of a senior counsel to argue the matter on behalf of FLP, SDL, NFP and UPP, along with Fiji Islands Council of Trade Union.


The UPP has since disbanded with the president, Mick Beddoes, opting to join the SDL party, which has been renamed the Social Democratic Liberal Party, also as a result of the new decree.


 
FICTU has also experienced changes since the plan to appeal with the general secretary, Attar Singh, being forced out of the National Federation Party.

Singh had previously stood under the party ticket but last weekend stepped down, along with Pramod Rae, who had  also been targetted by the decree.


NFP was to this afternoon re-register and along with SDL was the first party to reveal its plans. Its re-elected party president and Suva lawyer, Raman Pratap Singh, told media the application was being made at 3pm at Suvavou House.


Singh said NFP had signed up more than 5005 members and was looking forward to continuing for another 50 years.

Great FLP fight this decree. what rights does kahiyum have to dictate the terms of political expression in Fiji? None. Maichod Muslim son of a bitch.

It is good to see FLP fighting this case but are they doing just on behalf of their party or whole group. Also why only MPC and RPC are commenting from FLP, dont they have other ppl or its a family party?

It will be interesting to know who will be the new GS of National farmers union? I plead to MPC to leave that to those who are genuinly interested and you concentrate on politics, we need seasoned guys like you and LQ to kick some arse.

I believe this decree is very good and those who are sincere with their jobs should not find any problem in complying with it.

This is modern Fiji and lets move on, vote the ppl we want in power in 2014.

FLP TEST SEPERATION OF POWERS IN FIJI said...

NZ Law Society, Austrlian Law Society, UK Law Charity, must now be on alert to monitor if the Fiji High Court Registry will accept the summons against the President, Attorney General, and Registrar of Elections against the Draconian Political Party Registration Decree number 57? If it does not accept the petition filed by FLP's QC, it would mean the Courts are not independent, its jurisdiction is severely curtailed, and there is no seperation of powers, the fundamental principle of rule of law.

I am not a muslim, but I am sick of the deranged person who has been sewing hate against muslims all over the Fiji bolds.

maybe his sister or mother eloped with and was fucked by a muslim, that's why such pathological hate towards Muslims, there can be no other explanation.

Frank ! I will keep on reminding you now and in future as I did in the past,you AG (Khaiyum)should be replaced by an experience AG. He is too green to advise Coup Leader like you. The power in your gun should schncronise with the legal adviser that will be supported by the people and not only few hand pick part of the populace in Fiji and abraoad.
Come on Frank advertise the post and replace him with a brilliant person. I am sure very shortly he will abandon your ship and seek PR ubder refugee in one of the muslim country in the world

Maybe fruitless appeal said...

Oilei; We certainly haven’t learnt anything. Yes the Political Party Decree (PPD) can be challenged Mr Rajendra Chaudhry but aren’t you wasting your time and money. We all know there will certainly be a degree PPD mark 2 to circumvent the current PPD.

Fiji politicians to challenge controversial Political Parties Decree

Posted at 03:39 on 13 February, 2013 UTC

Politicians in Fiji are expected to file a challenge to the country’s controversial new decree on political parties within the next two days.

This comes on the eve of a deadline for existing political parties to re-register under strict new rules.

The Political Parties Decree requires parties to have at least 5,000 paid-up members across all Fiji’s divisions and bans union officials and other public officers from party roles.

The Labour Party has been spearheading the legal challenge.

Lawyer Rajendra Chaudhry, who is the son of the Labour Party leader Mahendra Chaudhry, earlier said the decree would be challenged in court as it was an invasion of citizens’ rights, oppressive and violated international conventions

MPC is Fiji ke Robin Hood (collects from rich in name of poor, keeps for himself).

MPC is anti-nepotism (sneakily appointed in-law Sahida, who is a top toilet cleaner, to senate) .

MPC is tough on tax dodgers (does not declare his income in Aust account)

MPC is anti-corruption (uses state funds to renovate personal property)

MPC is against feathering nest (uses his party name to raise $3m, banks it in personal account)

MPC is generous with heart of gold (gifts beti $50k; approvs bainimarama 150k backpay)

MPC is champion of the poor (poor do not see a cent he raised in their name)

MPC is honest (raised $3m under false pretences)

MPC is magician jadu tona (for a while made $3m disappear)

MPC supports democracy (when it suits him – supported 2006 coup)

MPC leads FLP in transparent manner (covertly appoints toilet man sachida senator against party directive; disciplines those who question decision)

Pleas others, add to the list...

juluumbaat said...

Ok the Fiji court should have no problem in disposing this case in a jiffy.
let me guide the court with my recommendation :
the coup was illegal so the "government" installed by the coup makers is illegal so all the decrees it has made are illegal and unlawful so how can this political party registration decree be legal and lawful? The court rules the government and ALL its decrees are unlawful and orders that all the current government people make a single file and march to book themselves in a Naboro!

FIJI FIRST PARTY SUPPORTS THE POLITICAL DECREE. FLP SHOULD GO HOME.

I can bet my bottom dollar that the case will not be accepted by the Registrar. This is very clear already. However it is good to apply so the world can see how Fiji's courts if you can call them that, are under Khaiyum's thumb! Khaiyum is the Lord of Fiji at the moment! But you wait you pig, our time will come then you will regret you were born Motherf...er!

NFP first to re-register as political party

17:08 Today

Taken from/By:
Report by: Elenoa Turagaiviu

The National Federation Party has become the first political party to re-register as an existing political party under the new Political Parties Decree.

Party executives led by their President Raman Pratap Singh filed the application at the Registrar of Political Parties Office in Suva a short while ago.

Singh said they’re aware that the Decree now prohibits the party from operating until they’re registered.

He said they recorded about 8000 members in all divisions far in excess of the 5000 required in the Decree.

According to Singh, the NFP has been around for 50-years and it’s not about to disappear.

Chandu Umaria is a big time embezzler doing superficial things like wear red on Valentine's Day to hide his corrupt activities. While mayor of Suva he did things like decorate the foreshore and all that to divert attention from the big time scam he was pulling off. During his time millions of dollars were unaccounted for. A proper investigation will reveal all and expose this crook.

We the Fijian people really thank Mr. Aiyaz Khaiyum for a well thought DECREE FOR POLITICAL PARTIES REGISTRATION. Well two former NFP members, Attar Singh and Parmod RAE, who used to deceive the voters had resigned and opted to remain as Unionists. So really these two gentlemen were the few former politicians who were wasting our time as voters. They said that they will come back. My advice to these two guys don't bother coming back because you guys just don't careless and keep your bulshit in your ass. Mr. Khaiyum pse this should be also part for the non-negotiable provision to be incorporated in our new Constitution. Please Mr. Khaiyum can you look for more loop holes where this sick politicians are taking advantage of and incorporate it in our non-negotiable provisions within our new Constitution. This is something that they have been fooling us over the years and enjoying it. My reminder to these losers, please adhere to Bob Marley Lyrics.."You can fool some people sometimes but you cannot fool the people all the time"..Thank you Mr. Khaiyum..more..more non-negotiable for the sake of us the ordinary Fijians..Vina va levu du!!vakaikai koto Mr. Khaiyum!!These former politicians to much aqipitche!!I just don't know what were they doing in Parliament in those years!!Go Khaiyum go!!Cola!!
