The first organised public meeting on the regime's 2013 Constitution is being held tonight at the FTA Hall in Knolly St in Suva at half past five.
It's been called by the United Coalition for Democracy and comes a day before the regime is due to formally promulgate the new 'supreme law' for the country.
The draft was released just two weeks ago and despite the promises of 'feedback', the people have been allowed to respond only to the accuracy of vernacular translations. So much for the preamble 'We, the people of Fiji hereby establish this Constitution...'
A march is also being planned in Wellington tomorrow, and while likely to be small, is notice to New Zealand that John Key doesn't speak for all when he says the Constitution is a positive step towards elections.
Key has also said he doesn't think the immunity provisions is a deal breaker for New Zealand.
New Zealand and Australia sold the people of Fiji out some time ago, seduced by Suva's babble of democracy, so have readily 'welcomed' the regime document.
Both forked out for the 'election reforms' and will no doubt keep parting with money in the hope of a new era.
Those on the ground know that 2014 will bring more jockeying by the coup makers to cement their power.
Already Frank Bainimarama has hinted at the road he'll take, if things don't gel in the New Fejee post election, saying recently he'd consider bringing in government ministers if those duly elected don't come up to scratch.
“I will look at their work if it is not up to par with my expectations then changes are expected," he says. "And I will bring someone from India, the Solomon’s, Japan or China who can serve the people of Fiji better."
As the Coalition notes: how is he planning to do this when his own constitution states 'you must be ‘a citizen of Fiji & do not hold citizenship of another country, and (c) is ordinarily resident in Fiji for 2 years.'
Perhaps, New Zealand and Australia will foot the bill at that time, too, since they are so keen to help.
Editor's note: The UDFD meeting is at the FTA Hall in Knolly St in Suva at 5.30pm. The agenda includes 10 Good Reason to Reject the Constitution, which was circulated earlier this week, and will no doubt include the New Zealand and Australian 'appeasement'. There have been a lot of developments this week, including Bainimarama's comment he'll look offshore for ministerial input, so please attend and make our views count.
