No election can ever legitimise Bainimarama

He's standing down as commander in chief but does it mean free and fair elections?

Frank Bainimarama has announced he will relinquish the all- powerful-role military role next month but has made no details available yet about his new political party or who his running mates are.

As has been his practice, he has drip fed the miserly information to citizens when and how it suits him and his agenda to keep a right rein on the country, this time via the ballot box.

Anyone who thinks the grand gesture to give up his stripes should be applauded are kidding themselves. 

Bainimarama and the military officers who intend to run in the September elections do not have the mandate of the people and no sham of an election will change the fact they committed a coup and have held the country to ransom since 2006.

Bribery works every time, eh Fiji soldiers???


By MAIKA BOLATIKI, Managing Editor/News

Prime Minister and Commander of the Republic of Fiji Military Forces, Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama, looked relaxed when he spoke to members of the forces yesterday in Nabua, Suva, yesterday.
On February 28 he steps down as Commander and embarks on a political career, carrying with him the expectations of many people that he will find success in championing the cause his Government has chartered for the new Fiji.
Under his watch, the RFMF has grown from the political turmoil of 2000 to a robust organisation with a crucial role in national development.
Its younger officers are now well trained to be able to handle issues outside of the military. Military engineers have become the unsung heroes, working with various communities to help build roads, bridges, footpaths, homes, schools, nursing stations, health centres, churches and community halls.
Military personnel also serve in important positions in Governmnent and their influence is evident in the efficient way projects are being completed. Discipline and no-nonsense focus have driven many projects from start to finish. The completion rate of many of these developments is remarkable given the challenges like unfavourable weather and tight budgets.
Fiji’s contribution to the United Nations peacekeeping commitments is widely recognised. It continues to grow.
He should look back with satisfaction with his achievements. And he would not have been able to do it without the support of his wife, Mary, and their children. Commodore Bainimarama is a devoted family man.
This was reflected in his address to the RFMF members yesterday. He told them to use their money wisely for the benefit of their families.
Stressing the importance of family wellbeing he said: “School is restarting and I am hoping that our children are being prepared well to begin school this year. We all know that Government will pay for the school fees. But the parents are responsible for nurturing the children at home.”
His simple and down-to-earth approach to life, reinforced by strong family values, makes him an excellent leader.
He is going to be missed by the RFMF, and the families of all who serve, when he hands over the reins to his successor.

Do not be manipulated by politicians, troops urged

By WATI TALEBULA

Prime Minister and Commander of the Republic of Fiji Military Forces Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama says the forces must ensure there is no repeat of the 2000 events.
He was addressing the First Quarter Parade at the Queen Elizabeth Barracks in Nabua, Suva, yesterday.
Commodore Bainimarama said the events triggered by the political turmoil led to the death of forces’ members in the camp .
“ You should not allow it to happen again in this camp,” he said.
He said the takeover in 2006 was the culmination of events that began in 2000, and marked the beginning of a new journey to build a new Fiji.
He said politicians used the military to try to achieve their own sectional interests in 2000. He said the forces should be aware of this type of politicians who thrived on negative and divisive policies.
“It’s beginning to resurface in the discussion over the new Constitution. I urge you to study it thoroughly and be familiar with its provisions and the Charter,” he said.
“See that political discussion is consistent with the Constitution and the Charter.
“They should form the core values of all political parties because they encompass the belief, desire, hope and aspiration of the people of Fiji
“Many thought that the idea for a takeover in 2006 was born the same year.
“For those of us who were there in the military in 2000, it was clear to us that 2006 was the end of a journey and a beginning of a new journey for our country.
“ Debate will continue and there will be fingerpointing but our conscience in the military is clear. We did something that was right and which would bring a greater good for the country.
“The outcome of all these discussions is that we are now going to hold a general election this year.”
“We are beginning to hear the politics of old again in campaigns.
“I wish to advise all members of the forces to be firm and not be influenced by negative and destructive politics.”
He said politicians should be responsive to the needs of the people.
Be wise in voting for their representatives in parliament, he cautioned.
He said beware of politicians who were not genuine and only wanted to be in parliament for their own self interests.
He called on everyone to protect the integrity of the forces and the camaraderie they had built and enjoyed.
He said they should look after the facilities and equipment provided by the Government. He said those in leadership must not abuse their positions.

Officers praise Commander
January 21, 2014 | Filed under: Fiji News | Posted by: newsroom
By WATI TALEBULA

The Commander of the Fiji Military Forces will step down on February 28 but military officers are sad to see him go.
Sergeant Kameli Radoa said they would miss his leadership because he treated everyone equally and was always there to help them.
“He is a good man and he is the first commander who thinks about our welfare and continuously reminds us of the importance of families.”
“He emphasises the truth and transparency of our service and now that he is about to leave, we wish for a Constitution that states he can be the Commander and at the same time the Prime Minister.”
The Commissioner of Corrections, Lieutenant- Colonel Ifereimi Vasu, said Commodore Bainimarama gave his time to enhance the military.
“He always comes to the members and tries to improve the military and he always does what he says, he walks the talk.”
“I always admire him because he always wants us to put our families first and he gave his time to the force.”
Land Force Commander, Colonel Mosese Tikoitoga, said Commodore Bainimarama did not only have good manners but had been an outstanding leader.
“He has kept the RFMF together in difficult times and the fact that he maintained the cohesion of the RFMF to what it is today is a testimony to that type of leadership”
“He has very good leadership; very honest, transparency is a trademark of a good commander and he loves his people.”
The RFMF’s chief operations officer, Lieutenant- Colonel Amani Suliano, said he was a good leader and treated everyone equally.

He talks about dirty politicians involved in 2000.
What were their names?

This is another bullshit story by Bainimarama.

Was it Qarase?
Well, Didnt he put Qarase there in 2000.

Who the fark is he talking about?

Was it Chaudry?
Then why did he invite Chaudry to do the coup with him in 2006.

So who the fark was it? Who are the dirty politicians?
Can you give us the names please Bainimarama.

This arsehole is lying through his teeth again.

Either that or he is just so farked up in the head he is confusing himself.

We all know that he himself arranged for the soldiers to do the coup in 2000.
And then he DOUBLED CROSSED HIS OWN SOLDIERS - ie CRW.

There is no one else.
Only Bainimarama instigated the coup in 2000
And then did it again in 2006 to try and avoid jail.

Well. Come 2014 and you'll be hanging from the gallows.

This liar should be got rid off once and for all.

IF YOU COMMIT TREASON, then you get the punishment you deserve.
Hang the bastards!

One wonders what Bainimarama is saying in his speach to the soldiers.He has been saying this on many occations the lies and deceit of old poloticians.Tghe old politicians wre genuinely in parliment and were uillegally force out by the the biggest lier Bainimarama for the reason he stated on the evening of 2/12/2006 a clean up campaign. Since then none of Qarases member of parliment have ever been charged or convicted of corruptions. Instead Bainimarama and his regine have become very corrupted, He pay hiself million plus with Kaiyum in salary. TGhey appoint their relatgives to hold high positions in the government ans statuory bodies.No Auditor Generals report been released because it will show the misuse and abuse by the illegal regime. To our soldiers remember you are accountable to the people of Fiji. Bainimarama will be gone from the 28th of Mar ch the military institutioin remains. OInce Bainimarama is gone you have to make ammend to mistakes Bainimarama had made and he has been dragging the whole military institution with him to achieve what he himself want not the military and that is wealth,power and fame.The military have lost some of its loyal soldiers who tried to put things straight but the hand out made by Bainimarama in the form of salary increase was hard to resist and as such our soldiers loyality was actually bought by Bainimarama and his muslim elite group.Most importantly the law should be seen to be followed by every citizen of Fiji and no one is above the law. If Speight and his colnspirators were investigated, arrested, charged and sent to prison for treason, Bainimarama wityh those muslim elite group and some politicina loosers should also be incvestigated, assested, charged and prosecuted for treason BUT NOT the soldiers as they were following orders from Bainimarama their commander and as such Bainimarama is responsible for all criminal and civil breaches done by the soldiers.Looking back to the last 8u years uin Bauinimarama illegal reign what have we achieved NOTHING, NIL Only Bainimarfama had achieved a lot,he has bout some properties,where did he get the money from mistry ? He has appointyed his brother in law and his daughter and his son to his position like wise Kaiyum his brother and his Unti.Bainimarama has actually built for himself some bases to try and convince members of the public that he is a genuine capable person worth to be trusted but the truth is that he has been full of lies and deceit. He is very corrupted. He has abilished the GCC now the Provincial council will be abolished which meands that there will be no districh council and no village council It will be a total destruction of the native Fijian race. Bainimarama constitution has open the door to the government to grab native lands and decide what ever they want to do with it even when the lease is expired the government will extend it without the concent of the land owner.WHO IS TELLING LIES AND FULL OF DECEIT ? The old politicians or Bainimarama ? Definetly Bai nimarama,To the Military let Bainimarama Go as he want be a politician which will benefit himnself and his family and the Militry Institution will not benefit from it. One he resigned he is no longer in the military.but the military will continue even without Bainimarama.Let him fight a fare battle with other politicians in a level battle field if makes it good on him if he fails thehn he bite the dust every politician should be given equal chance in a fair, free and democratic election and there shouldnot be any interfearnce from Police or Military or Electoral Commission.

The statements written by Maika Bolatiki and Wati Talebula are all praise for the traitor, Bainimarama. This is understandable because any information that may be critical of Bainimarama and his last 14 years of dictatorship will land anyone in Naboro (just ask all his critics including Driti).

One just has to observe similar dictatorships such as Hitler, Gaddafi,Saddam Hussein,Kim Jong-un and Mubarak to see that regime media machines work tireless to cover up their sins and to beautify their sordid personalities.

This is similar to money laundering where criminals attempt to wash their money into and a legitimate financial system. Unfortunately, Bainimarama is not money because a mere propaganda machine can never wash away the countless crimes he has perpetrated on the citizens of Fiji.

Bainimarama is under pressure to step down because he cannot afford to con his troops forever. His claim to raise the standards of the military is false. The military is divided and morale is at an all time low. Officers cannot trust each other and anyone who attempts to question illegal orders are thrown in jail or out on the streets.

What about Bainimarama's so called glorious government. Lets look at the characters involved. Corrupt individuals such as Inoke Kubuobola, Filipe Bole, Jim Ah Koy, Epeli Nailatikau and others are not exactly the "new politicians" one can trust.

Bainimarama is just like a known pedophile warning kids in church to be vigilant against other pedophiles who may be corrupt. sinners.

Keep bullshitting Bai because this will be good practice for the penal system.

Ha,ha so true when you see video clip up at QEB.

why can"t Bainimarama just resign and concentrate in his political ambition because that is his own personal desire and nothing to do with the military as an institution.Why is he telling soldiers to watch out for old politicians lies and deceit.He Bainimarama has been telling lies throught out the 8 years of his illegal reign and everyone knows the truth.Is Bainimarama telling our solders to step in if he loose the election.? He will definately loose the election. He can not compeet with those well educated and far more experience politicians.The only two ways he can beat those season politicians are by rigging and military interfearance otherwise he Bainimarama stand no chance of winning the election. To the military you are an a political I nstitution and should not in anyway interfear with politics your role and responsibilities is important deefending the people of Fiji from agression not defending the politicians for some favour.

Viti Vou said...

Dear All,

People migrated to Viti thinking that they will make wealth out of our land like in any colonized nation/settler nation. Now a new form of migration namely the International Investors are using corrupt governments to access wealth from the disadvantage and disenfranchised people like the indigenous people. The rich men's logic is that they create wealth in the name of development so that every one will get the trickle down effects. This is BULL SHIT, excuse my language but I still maintain that is the right language for stupid people like you,

When a culture of a people is disturbed and the fabrics that connects and define the totality of its existence have been broken, complexities of social problems begins to emerge as we see today.

While growing up in the village I have not come across any of these modern sickness (high blood pressure, diabetes,cancers etc brought by the so called wealth creation strategies mediated through Government DP4, 5 and 6 etc. All these development strategies have one single goal ....to remove the ownership of land from its traditional owners and as a result our natural and pristine environment is now being contaminated and destroyed for ever.

Do not take me wrong.Development is good but NOT by controlled and manipulated by external forces.

The lies and deceit by the current regime can not penetrate the inner core of the Kaiviti solidarity and this can be effectively used by the Kai Viti dominated party for election campaign.

Again leave our land alone as warned by the Turaga na Tui Lau sa Bale. Mahen was trying to promote his Land Use Project and he was bitten by a snake.

People that argue that wealth can be generated through land access.

MY question is,

Who benefits from this?

The recent Bauxite Mining in Nawailevu, Bua is a classic example of how this government have manipulated processes using Land Bank which up till to date the land owners have only received not even a percentage of what the Chinese have stolen. Another sad thing is the environment damage that have been cover up by the Bua Provincial Office. But thank God for the Tui Wainunu who have been very vocal against mining in Bua.

Ask the Land owners of Vatukoula, Mt Kasi, Suvavou, Savusavu, Levuka etc?

International investors is like a creature without a soul. Look at what is happening to all indigenous tribes all over the world...their land, resources, etc are slowly being destroyed by the so called wealth creation strategies by international investors.

Our land connects us us to our identity, traditional culture, heritage etc and etc.
This current Regime is trying to destroy our identity.

This regime is an enemy of the I taukei ni Vanua o Viti.

Do not VOTE this Government.

I've known Bainimarama personally for years, and he is completely opposite to how Tikoitoga portrays him. The man is not polite; he's an uncouth, boorish thug. He hasn't given good leadership. He is a treasonous, toxic leader who has created most of our nation's unrest since 2000. The man isn't honest or transparent in the least, as is plainly evident in his suppression of the Public Auditor reports and much more. He doesn't love his people; he's a user. He used the CRW as his pawns in 2000, and then he betrayed them.

He's betrayed us all. There is no leadership, courtesy, honesty, transparency or love in the man. It's all a lie, from start to finish.

Anonymous said...

Before admonishing the soldiers to familiarise themselves with the contents of the Charter and the "constitution", Bainimarama should do the same. He insists that all political discussion be consistent with the constitution and charter, but how is the BKC inconsistent with the Peoples Charter, which pledged, after all, to uphold the 1997 Constitution? He is the biggest violator of both the Constitution and his own phony Charter.

The Commander says that he wishes to advise us all to be firm and not be influenced by negative and destructive politics. But one man's "negative and destructive" is another man's "positive and constructive". We shouldn't be in politics at all. That is not the place for our RFMF.

Our officers should not be in government ministries. We have no business issuing decrees. We should not be asked to break our own laws.

Editor,
It is good news to hear that "Commodore Bainimarama [has]confirmed he would be stepping dowm as military commander on February 28 and would be handing over his role to his successor on March 1" ('Army chief to exit' Fiji Times editorial 21/1)
Anyone acquainted with Fiji politics would know the Commodore had already overstayed his term as commander of the Fiji army by staging a military coup in December 2006.
It is good that the Commodore is voluntarily stepping down to pave the way for elections.
Let us hope the elections return the country to the "true" democratic rule the Commodore had promised when he grabbed political power and that it is NOT business as usual - the kind the people of Fiji have been subjected to over the past seven years.
That would be a shameful tragedy for the people of Fiji.
sincerely,
Rajend Naidu

Fiji's fate was sealed when the Constitution was abrogated and decrees issued one after the other. Fijians now lethargic and without will power to overthrown illegal government. After almost 8 years of military dictatorship and evidence of a separate class system, they have succumbed to propaganda and the politics of punishment.

The question that has been in everyone's mind since the 2000 coup is why did the CRW soldiers revolt against Bainimarama when he was the same commander who ordered these men to assist Speight in taking over Parliament?
It must have been that Bainimarama had turned his back on them when they realized that the 2000 coup itself had failed, but the main culprit (Bai himself) had escaped scott free. In turn he allegedly ordered the slaughter of those CRW soldiers whose families have since become widowed and orphaned.
Police Commissioner Andrew Hughes was ready to prosecute Bai for his treasonous role when Bai executed the 2006 coup to escape the charge.
But Bai will not escape this time around because God has summoned him to his fate. Bai is coming to the end of his tether.

Perhaps many within the military are just waiting, biding their time, for frank to lose his authority over the military, once he has resigned his Commission, before they retaliate and arrest him and Aiyaz and the illegally appointed Judges.
Prepare for a period of Martial Law, a slow painful return to Democracy and the appointment of a neutral caretaker Prime Minister and fresh legal elections in accordance with the Fiji Court of Appeal ruling of April the 9th. 2009 and re-establishment of the G.C.C.
This might explain why Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum has been in Australia, not his sick son, as reported.
I think he's ready to jump ship and hope he will be arrested before leaving Fiji again.
I agree that Frank has no socially redeemable features and suspect that his son is the same and that Meli's new wife will discover this within 6 to 12 months also.
She should escape to America to give birth to her new offspring.

Bainimarama will not allow free and fair elections. Even Semi Meo must understand that by now. If Bainimarama permits elections at all, they will be window dressing for yet another farcical exercise designed to give an aura of legitimacy to the perpetuation of his tyranny. What we should be doing now is not just campaigning against him politically but laying concrete plans for actions to be taken as soon as Bainimarama pulls his next big betrayal. Don't fool yourself into thinking that Teleni, Tikoitonga or Aziz will take any action against Bainimarama if they become Commander. The people must lead before the army will follow.

Let us not forget that the Commodore stepped down from being illegal PM after the decision of the Appeals Court finding his coup illegal. Then the next day he scrapped the Constitution and reappointed himself .
He undoubtedly has some trick up his sleeve this time too. It will be interesting to see who he appoints as his fake successor in the Army. Will it be his brother-in-law or which other of his loyal cronies.

Chiefly title concerns

Luke Rawalai
Wednesday, January 22, 2014

A Bua chief has raised his concern on the installation of the "Ai Sua Levu" a chiefly title in the village of Nawaido in Bua.

Tui Wainunu Ratu Orisi Baleitavea claimed the processes followed to install the current title holder was not proper.

"When a chiefly installation takes place the installers inform the Provincial Office who then inform the chiefs within the vanua," he said.

"I am surprised that we were not even informed of this installation and I raise my concern as the secretary of the Bose Vanua o Bua."

The current title-holder is Ratu Filimoni Ralogaivau who was installed in December last year.

I recently visited NZ for a short holiday. Although i have traveled to NZ many times it never seems to amaze me how different a country can be just 2 and half hours away by plane. Politics and coup aside we in Fiji don't even know how to keep our country clean. When something so basic alludes us everything else will always be a challenge including our choice of politicians and democracy.Oh and Viti Vou isn't it a bit too late to go to the stone age.You can either except the way the world is moving including the technologically that allows you to blog namelessly or leave everything and go live of the land. Sadly this is also a choice that most i-taukei have to make. The world is moving to fast for most indigenous people and excepting and adjusting is the biggest challenge faced by native people. The truth is you cant aspire to attain the trappings of the modern world and hope to live like your forefathers. Get your head out of the sand.

There was a man trapped in the snow miles from civilization. He prayed for God to deliver him and save him. Within 1 hour a helicopter hovered above him and a rescue worker descended on a rope ladder. The rescuer asked the man if he needed help. The man said "no thanks I am waiting for God to help me".

Good people of Fiji it is time you started to put your faith into action. God will not appear in person to help you. He will wait until His people get up off their arses and move. Then his strength and guidance will come. God will help those who are prepared to help themselves. We must start then He takes over.

Good people must rise. The military will then follow. You cannot expect the military to start the ball rolling. It must be people power.

Trues Up Man, the amount of remittances sent home by Fijians doesn't reflect well on the regime. It indicates that more Fijians than ever live abroad. It shows that more locals than ever are economically dependent on handouts from overseas relatives.

I agree with you.
I think though we should wait until after the promised election in September.

I have a feeling that if we do something now or before the Election, he will have a legitimate reason ( to OVERSEAS COUNTRIES) to post-pone the election and prolong military rule.

I think we wait until after September.

If by September he post-pone the election for any other reason then we nail the bastard.

Is the RFMF as fit and healthy as it should be??? Looking at some of the soldiers shown in the FBC news, they are either apathetic or tubby, if not slow-looking. Some officers look fit and ready but not so much the ordinary Jo Moce. Is this what the RFMF has come to with all the gold and silver in their pockets to turn the other way?

ANON 6.03. It appears that you are the intelligent one i will admit that i am not too smart although in my dumbness i did manage to start a business from next to nothing and grew it to employ 50 people today. Maybe in my dumb stupor i somehow stumbled upon somebodies good brain perhaps yours and used it for a wee while. You are typical of the few remaining idiots in Fiji walking around with the "world owes me a favor" chip. I am simply asking the questions that is the greater issue for native people all over the world. How do you find a place in a world where technology and the way of life is making the old ways more and more irrelevant. Since you are obviously a full blood i-taukei and i am a "kailoma" why do you want the UN to decide. This is a free blog. Why don't you tell us what you want for i believe once the i-taukei decide how they want to live the next 100 years of their lives most problems in this country can be solved. While Franks coup is the obvious point of contention i don't think it matters much because most i-taukei were happy with the other coups. It is his ideology that bothers many. If his ideology is genuine or not remains to be seen.I am also asking the obvious hate mongers out there please tell us what is that you want for Fiji. OK we have all heard about don't vote for Frank blah blah blah. We know what we don't want. What i would like to know is what type of Fiji do we want because believe me our problems are far deeper then Frank and Khaiyum.

Businessman Stefan Ali at the Suva courthouse yesterday. He faces a charge of disorderly conduct in a public place. Picture: JONE LUVENITOGA

A MAN charged with disorderly conduct in a public place was yesterday granted bail by the Suva Magistrates Court.

Stefan Ali was presented before Chief Magistrate Usaia Ratuvili and the charge read to him. Mr Ali indicated to the court he understood the charge.

He is alleged to have made comments regarding the Prime Minister.

His defence counsel told the court they would like to defer the plea and asked he be granted bail.

Police prosecution told the court they would not object to bail as it was a minor offence but wanted Mr Ali to surrender his travel documents.

The defence counsel said since it was a minor offence, he saw no reason in Mr Ali surrendering his passports.

The court was told Mr Ali frequently travelled abroad.

Mr Ali was allowed bail after he provided a surety.

His case will be called again on March 7.

STATEMENT
[No 7 /2014]
[JAN 21 2014]

The UFDF said today that statements attributed to Lt Col Netani Rika as reported by the Fiji Sun and Frank Bainimarama as reported by Vijay Narayan and Mohammed Feroz show clear breaches of the Civil Service Standing Orders [2011 revision] and abuse of office.
The UFDF says the Civil Service Standing Orders on Campaigning Sec 1222 states quote ‘ Campaigning or political activity by a Civil Servant while on duty is forbidden. Civil Servants must not be canvassing or by any other means attempt publicly to further the activities or aspirations of a political party, or the election or return of an individual (whether a member of a political party or not) in any election to the House of Representatives or to a local Government body including Provincial Councils unquote

The UFDF says Lt Col Rika’s comments are political in nature and breach The Civil Service Standing orders 1222 that disallow quote ‘canvassing or by any other means attempt publicly to further the activities or aspirations of a political party’ unquote. There can be no doubt that Lt Col Rika was canvassing for Bainimarama’s party and as Commissioner Eastern he is abusing the privileges of his office as well as Sec 14 (1) (c) (d) of Decree 4 of 2013.

The UFDF says in the case of Frank Bainimarama he remains Commander of the Military and according to his Regimes own decree No 4 of 2013 he is in breach of the following provisions-

POLITICAL PARTIES (REGISTRATION, CONDUCT, FUNDING AND DISCLOSURES) DECREE 2013 DECREE NO 4 OF 2013

Restrictions on public officers in a political party

Sec 14 (1) A public officer shall not-
(c) Engage in political activity that may compromise or be seen to compromise the political neutrality of that person’s office; or
(d) Publicly indicate support for or opposition to any proposed political party or a political party registered under this decree or candidate in an election
(2) For the purposes of this section, ‘public officer’ means any person-
(c) Holding any office in the public service, the Fiji Police, Fiji Corrections Services or the Republic of Fiji Military Forces.
(4) Any public officer who intends to be an applicant or a member of, or hold office in, a proposed political party or a political party registered under this decree, must resign from the respective public office prior to applying to become an applicant or a member of, or hold office in, a proposed political party or a political party registered under this decree.


(5) A public officer is deemed to have vacated his or her office mentioned in subsection 2 immediately before the time at which he or she applies to become and applicant or a member of. Or hold office in, a proposed political party or a [political party registered under this decree.
The UFDF says the Commander’s repeated statements about forming his own party and contesting elections is in clear breach of Sec 14 (1) (c), (d), (2) (c) and (4) and (5) of Decree 4 of 2013. Just as Lt Col Rika’s statements are in breach of the Civil Service Standing Orders.
The UFDF says Lt Col Rika and Commodore Bainimarama have broken the law and the Acting Commissioner of Police and the Civil Service Commission are obliged to uphold the laws that govern these public office holders and appropriate and immediate action should be taken against them just as they would apply it to any other citizen.
The UFDF says if the newly elected Electoral Commission is serious about ensuring free and fair elections and remaining impartial and independent then it cannot ‘look the other way’ when clear abuse of office and breaches of the law as reported are committed by their employer.

Simply criticising Bainimarama is now disorderly conduct?

But torturing prisoners goes unpunished?

Fiji has now reached the stage of ultimate inversion of which Ayn Rand warned:

"The stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases,
While the citizens may act only by permission;
Which is the stage of the darkest periods of human history,
The stage of rule by brute force."

UFDF Statement 7/2014 using the regime's own rules against itself is brilliant. Bainimarama and his senior officers are in clear breach of their illegal Decree #4 of 2013. The Electoral Commission should critically review these officers' electioneering statements as a matter of priority. Its failure to do so will be a clear signal to all of the regime's firm intent to defraud Fiji again in the upcoming elections.

Some say that it isn't enough to be against something, but we also have to be for something. For some, it would seem that it's not enough to be opposed to treason -- they also ask what the parties would offer in the current regime's stead. For my part, I would suggest that all democratic parties should support some variant of Dakuwaqa's 10-point programme for national redemption:

1) Uphold the 1997 Constitution.

2) Enforce the laws against treason.

3) Return the RFMF to barracks. Court martial its leaders. Hang its commander.

4) Institute capital punishment for capital treason.

5) Unequivocally restore all civil liberties.

6) Repudiate the illegal debt amassed by the regime.

7) Anti-disestablishmentarianism! Defer indefinitely all illegal actions, such as dissolution of the GCC, until constitutional government is restored.

8) Return democratic governance to Fiji.

9) Restore Fiji's international standing and former regional leadership role.

10) Establish a Truth & Reconciliation Commission to adjudicate all coup-related grievances since 1987.

I endorse this positive programme of action and reform to the attention of the members of the UFDF, both jointly and severally. Whether explicitly or tacitly, I respectfully submit that some variant of Dakuwaqa's 10-point progamme for national redemption should serve as the point of departure for a common agenda by a united democratic front.

Bainimarama and his regime have been sucvcessful in citting off the chiefs from the people.Those chiefs who have thrown their asupport behind Bainimarama are the stand alone once who have no followers but the real recoganised chiefs have 99% followers from the native Fijians and 35% other races. Those percentages are indicator of the comming elections result .Vote _SODLEPA people for democracy, Freedom, Prosperity and Honesty.Bainimaramas Party have blood and criminal elements in their hands that need to be cleansed. Do not allow criminals to run our country.Their rightful place is Prison. Do not be blinded in what they have done as those were done from government money and as they are forcefully took over the leadership of our country the burden shift to them to ensure that all those developments are done.They have no option but obligated to do them. As a matter of facts they do nnot deserve any credit as that is their duty and have been paid a millioin dollar plus for nothing.

Secondly tbhose military officers who are holding high positions in the government are they quilified foir thoise positions? Bainimarama can you tell us what qualification has Kean got to qualify him to the position of a PS and Kaiyum can you tell us the qualification of all those Muslims you have promoted them to high position in the government ?

Merit is attained after sweat and tears from theory to practical through lots of sacrifice, concentration and hard work and NOT through the barrel of the gun

No decision on leader said...


January 27, 2014 |
By JYOTI PRATIBHA

Who will lead the National Federation Party to the general elections is yet to be decided. While the party has a president, there had been strong indication over the past week that economist Biman Prasad would lead the NFP. Decisions were expected to be made yesterday at the party’s working committee meeting in Ba. The committee met but a new leader was not announced. Journalists were not allowed inside the meeting to report any discussions on the leadership. Dr Prasad said he had not made any decision yet on whether to contest the elections. However, long time party member Kamal Iyer has been appointed the acting general secretary. At the meeting, NFP president, lawyer Raman Pratap Singh, said the general elections would provide the opportunity to lead the country. “We are at a critical juncture in the history of this country and once again NFP has the opportunity to provide leadership to move the country ahead as it had done in the past at some critical junctures.” He said to better allow the political parties to prepare themselves for free and fair elections, certain decrees needed to go. He also said: “We call upon the Government to operate in a caretaker mode as soon as the Prime Minister forms his own party.” Also present at the meeting was lawyer Tupou Draunidalo. She sat among the party executives. Ms Draunidalo is increasingly tipped to be a key part of the National Federation Party election team. She comes from a family background strong in politics.

Anonymous said...

Annon@1.38pm, I am someone close to the party, and I can tell you that Biman is a divisive force who created political factions within NFP. He created an unnecessary fight for the leadership with Attar some years back. When he was given leadership, he ducked the responsibility and went back to his well-paid USP job. he should have never contested the leadership if he didn't want it in the first place. How can NFP appoint as leader someone who showed disloyalty to the party and treated it with contempt? Someone who played games with party leadership? How can NFP stab a party loyalist like Attar in the back? Cowardly party and traitorous NFP party leadership is no better than corrupt, nepotistic leadership at FLP.

SODELPA and NFP seem to be parties without nominees. Bainimarama seems to be a nominee without a party.

I've always admired Attar Singh for his courage, candidness and integrity. He's a man for the people, and is certainly your man for all seasons.

Biman Prasad also has an important role to play in the party as well, but not in leadership seat I'm afraid. He and Attar could complement each other very well.

Well that's my observation from the outside as an i-taukei.

Good point anon 2.28pm, how will NFP stand for justice when it is committing big injustice within the party. No one in the party leadership has a sense of right or wrong, or the balls to make right decisions. NFP's biggest problem is weak leadership. The fate of the party should not rest in the hands of such imbeciles. First to go should be slacker Raman Pratap Singh. Having a political lightweight like him calling the shots is part of the problem. Where are Attar Singh's friends in the party when he needs them? Why aren't they standing up for him? are they scared or what?

Historically, my family supported NFP but switched to Labour in 1999 because NFP lost its way. It is still lost in 2014. The stupid party leaders do not realise that Biman Prasad will be a big liability in the 2014 election. He made NFP the laughing stock when he resigned as leader after one day. That was part of the reason why NFP lost so badly in 2006. Biman showed weakness when resigned. He does not have backbone to be the leader. But a weak party like NFP deserves a weak leader like Biman. We are celebrating if Biman is leader since we can tell people not to vote for party with leader for one day.

Anonymous said...

Both Biman and Attar come across as very able leaders who can save NFP. The leadership contest is very healthy. Not like FLP which is one man, one family party. For NFP party unity is very important. My best wishes to NFP which is moderate party with a proud record.

As an i-taukei looking in, here's what I think:

A secret ballot could easily settle the leadership issue, by its membership, management board or a special committee assigned to deal with the issue. Both men are capable, competent, have different strengths and weaknesses but are both worthy of the leadership mantle. I don't know why Biman resigned after Day 1 in the post but there must have been a compelling reason for him.

NFP ought to settle the leadership issue decisively and promptly, as that is a hallmark of a solid political party. Then winner and deputy make a joint "brief' statement on TV and print media.

Leadership crisis comes to "The End".

Any party with Attar Singh at the helm will prosper. Led by Biman -- not so much.

The earlier poster is right: Biman should give way to Attar. Biman's own prestige would rise considerably.

In the first seven months of 2013, over 1,000 Swedish women reported being raped by Muslim immigrants. Over 300 of those were under the age of 15. The number of rapes is up 16% compared to 2012 numbers.

Muslims were accepted by Sweden as refugees and given free housing medical, education, welfare benefits but the ungrateful pigs have turned on their hosts are are slowly destroying the country.

Beware of BC. He is the double-headed snake. Vile and cunning. Not the moderate he pretends to be. Rather the wolf in sheep's skin the bible talks about. BC is a deceiver posing conflicting views under different guises to confuse people and arouse hatred. BC will lead you astray. Away from God, towards Satan. BC, there is still time for you to repent. Turn away now. Work for God instead of Satan.

As an old-timer woith an interest in politics, I have been reading all about the leadership in NFP. The NFP has always been plagued by disunity and quarrelsome leaders. The Alliance Party extended an olive branch but arrogant NFP leaders rejected it. They chose to insult Ratu Mara instead.

I thought the young chap Attar Singh holds some promise. He seems to be respected across all communities. But it seems like the old tradition is continuing at NFP. The same old skulduggery by the leadership. Seems to be no change in the party's thinking or strategy. The party's decision makers still seem to prefer loud, noisy and vacuous leaders. Biman Prasad strikes me as a clone of past leaders whose scheming ways, arrogance, personal ambition and lack of foresight condemned the NFP and the Indian people.

Biman is old school whereas Attar represents the future. A yoing leader like him should be groomed and supported. But NFP has always been slow and afraid to embrace change, that's why it was destroyed by Labour.

NFP thinks it is still in the 1970s. The party has learnt nothing from two crushing election defeats. It will be annihilated at this election again. In my view NFP will not win a single seat again. It is too late for NFP, and indecisive leaders who lack vision are to blame .

Can you please point out the discrepancies in BC's postings.
Otherwise we'll just believe that you are just another regime idiot.

REGARDLESS OF WHO IS LEADER DO NOT VOTE NFP. IT WILL BE A WASTED VOTE BECAUSE THEY CAN'T WIN ANYTHING. VOTE PDP, A YOUNG NEW PARTY WHICH SIGNALS A NEW BEGINNING.

PDP signals a new beginning? What, in the way Bainimarama signals a new beginning?

Give us a break.

What do you mean by saying that no election can ever legitimise Bainimarama? Of course it can, if it's a free and fair election, with international observers, a level playing field, full media freedoms, no regime interference, and Bainimarama wins.

Hmmm. Now I see what you mean. Baininimarama would never allow such an election, much less win it!

Bainimarama can only be legitimized under the 1997 Constitution and when a the Courts clear him of charges that he was to be charged with for his role in the 2000 Speight coup and for the murders of CRW soldiers under his command.

He will never, nor will his conscience, in any life, ever escape these charges until he is cleared by those duly and legally empowered and appointed to do so.

What the f..k man Voceke!!
You keep harping and harping about a "free and transparent election"!!
I ask you this: Pray tell us to exactly WHEN did we NOT have a free and transparent election?
I was one of the Assistant Returning Officers, for the counting at the the last elections.
At NO time, and I repeat No time could the elections be rigged. The process was so water tight that there was no way anybody could have done anything sinister! As a consequence of unfounded complaints, we were interviewed by both the Police and an Independent outside body. We were forthright in our answers. THERE WAS NO MEDDLING, THERE WAS NO FRAUD, THERE WERE NO EXTRA BALLOT PAPERS. I COULD GO ON AND ON!!
Consequently both the independent and investigating parties concluded that the last elections were fair, transparent and free.
Bottom line : Voceke has been and is still trying to justify his ILLEGAL take over, at the expense of the country and the damned Army to save his skin!! Period!
When, oh when are people going to see through all this charade and bullshit!!
How can people be so gullible??!!!!
