UFDF: political parties should've had a say on electoral commissioners

The coalition for a Democratic Fiji says it welcomes the appointments of the Electoral Commissioners as a first step towards credible elections, but says it's a pity the regime did not seek recommendations from the political parties.

The UFDF says including the input of the parties would have been in line with best constitutional and democratic practice. 

"Consequently these appointees, some of whom it holds concerns about their independence, are all handpicked by the interim Prime Minister and Mr Sayed-Khaiyum. 

"This will place an additional burden of responsibility on each of them to ensure that they act with absolute impartiality and reject any attempts at interference in their work."

The UFDF says the Yash Ghai Commission is a good example of another non bipartisan appointment that was supposed to be independent but it did not stop the regime from attempting to influence its deliberations and directly interfering with its work.

  1. Party commends grassroots people

    THE People's Democratic Party (PDP) believes it is the perseverance and goodwill of grassroots people that has seen the country through turbulent times.

    In a statement sent to this newspaper by the political party, its spokesperson Nirmal Singh says Fijians who are under the "grassroots" category should be commended for enduring hardships brought about by past governments since 1987.

    "Our journey as a nation since 1987 has not been smooth and has been full of challenges," Mr Singh said in the statement.

    "It has tested our resolve as a multiracial nation, it has tested our tolerance for each other and it has tested our ability to preserve. It has tested our nation's ability to endure hardship and national integrity."

    He said people needed to take responsibility for the state the country had been in since 1987 and that "we the people are guilty of where our nation is today".

    "We urge people to exercise your rights and be part of national development.

    "Our people are our strength and together we will move forward to reclaim our country, our freedom and determine our destiny," he said.

    He added that if the party was voted into parliament, they would be an inclusive government that would strongly subscribe to democratic values, rule of law and respect for people's liberty.

    "We believe in unfettered press and respect the rights of people to differ with us. They are equally as important in the governance of the nation.

    "We will protect and enhance the rights of workers, both unionised and non-unionised and the rights of farmers who have shed their sweat and blood to make this country what it is today."

  2. ITS CALLED A DICTATORSHIP - so it does not care about the peoples opinions, its looking for a way to legitimise its corruption and criminal acts against the people of Fiji.

    Stop asking for decency and integrity and treat it for what it is - a dictatorship!

    starve it of its power!

  3. As usual, the UFDF raises a very valid point. The PDP's statement, too, sounds fine, as far as it goes, but that isn't very far at all, is it?

    Whatever happened to the "Loyal Fijian Resistance"? They had the Dakuwaqa Hushmail account, took strong, well-reasoned positions, and had a very articulate writing style, like Dak's. It seems they suddenly vanished, just like the enigmatic Dak on the eve of Operation Jericho, just before he manoeuvered Bainimarama into canceling his UN trip.

    Disappointing. I wish the LFR or something like it would come back to stay. I think Fiji needs such a group -- seemingly moderate, principled, militant.

    Like so many other national liberation movements, we need something like an "armed wing" of the UFDF in order to put real pressure on these goons masquerading as a government.

    These statements by the opposition are all very fine, but unless they're combined with action, they're not likely to have any effect on the present despotism.

  4. PDP will bury NFP in the elections. NFP should have done the honourable thing and folded up after 1999 elections, like the SVT. But NFP has no honour. As someone wrote, old leaders still clinging to power, and so-called young leaders like professor Biman Prasad and unionist Attar Singh have nothing new to offer. I would rather vote PDP. Even PM's party is better.

  7. Police Force achieves all 8 KPIs for 2013
    Publish date/time: 15/01/2014 [13:20]
    For the first time ever, the Fiji Police Force has achieved all of their Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for 2013.

    Speaking during this morning’s fourth quarter Police Parade in Nasova, Acting Police Commissioner Ravi Narayan said they managed to reduce complaints and disciplinary offences by 58%, reduce crime by 23% and serious crimes by 17%.

    Narayan said for crime against women, the Fiji Police Force recorded a major reduction of 88%.

    According to Narayan, from the 2,115 crimes against women cases reported for the fourth quarter of 2012, they reduced this to 1,903 for the 2013 period.

    He said they also managed to reduce crime against children by 82%.

    Narayan also said out of the 4,406 registered crimes last year, they solved 3,095 cases.

    Narayan credited the achievement of the Key Performance Indicators to their resources.

    OH WHAT ABSOLUTE BULLSHIT. EVERYONE KNOWS HOW THE POLICE HAVE DOCTORED THE FIGURES TO MAKE THEM LOOK GOOD,WHEN THEY ARE ACTUALLY SO UNPROFESSIONAL AND INCOMPETENT. ANOTHER ORCASTRATED ATTEMPT TO BURY THEIR HEADS IN THE SAND. SHAME SHAME SHAME. BUT YOU CANT FOOL US.

    Fiji Airways to appoint more locals
    Publish date/time: 15/01/2014 [12:57]

    Email this page
    Five expatriates have left Fiji Airways since the new CEO and Managing Director Stefan Pichler took up the position.

    Pichler said his aim is to appoint locals to the positions if they can do the job.



    Fiji Airways has also set out a strategic plan to increase the number of local pilots flying for the airline from one third to two thirds.

    Pichler said Fiji Airways is aiming to hire 14 new local pilots soon to start off this process.

    He said two thirds of their pilots are expatriates at the moment and he is focused with his team to change this over the next five years.

    Previous heads of Fiji Airways had earlier said that they did not have more local pilots because they did not have enough qualified pilots.

    Pichler disputed this as he said people should just see the number of Fijian pilots flying for other airlines.

  11. For someone to write: "I would rather vote PDP. Even PM's party is better" shows that there isn't much difference between the PDP and Bainimarama.

    The NFP is so bad that this guy would rather vote for traitors, thugs and thieves? What kind of reasoning is this? And what about the other parties?

    This kind of strange thinking is usually indicative of a regime troll or another desperate PDP propagandist.

    Uniforms a concern

    Samuel Berenyi
    Wednesday, January 15, 2014

    THE cost of school uniforms continue to be financial strain on some Fijian parents buying school supplies for their children.

    Despite the government implementing a new budgetary allocation to help cover the costs of tuition fees, some parents say they are still feeling the pinch of expensive school uniforms.

    Tailevu dad Joeli Seruiratu, who was shopping in Suva yesterday, said he spent about $80 on his son's school uniforms of two sulu and two shirts.

    According to Mr Seruiratu, "the price of uniforms is going up"......

    If khaiyum is claiming that some

  24. How are we going to man roadblocks if we don't have weapons?

    Of course we need an armed opposition. The traitors who have seized our government are armed. Why shouldn't those who would defend Fiji also be armed?

    It's been eight years, and the regime hasn't imploded yet, despite Bainimarama becoming more despotic, Khaiyum more brazen, and the Military Council more irrelevant. Our rights and liberties have been stripped from us, every honest judge chased out of the country, the Constitution rubbished, the press muzzled, our churches kept from meeting, our chiefs mocked and arrested, our institutions abolished, our pensions stolen, our flag rejected, our friends insulted, our borders opened to criminal elements, and our land used against our will. We've watched this regime betray, torture, murder, kidnap, maim, steal, lie and lie again.

    Just one empty promise after another. Einstein said the definition of madness is doing the same thing over and over again, yet expecting different results. It's madness to sit and do nothing. And it's also cowardice.

  26. We totally agree with Tui Nadi's comments.Three prominent chiefs in the Western Division have come out in support of the Bainimarama Government.
    Newly-installed Tui Nadi Ratu Sailosi Dawai, Tui Nawaka Ratu Asaeli Driu Naevo and Marama Tui Ba Adi Laite Koroirua say that they agree with many of the policies of the Government.
    Free education, better roads and investment in the agricultural sector have been some of the key issues these chiefs endorsed.
    The Tui Nadi Ratu Sailosi has pledged his allegiance for the Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama-led Government.
    He said he would support the Prime Minister for his affirmative action over the years to address the needs of the people.
    “I support the Prime Minister now and even in years to come, I will continue to support him,” the Tui Nadi said.
    “That is why wherever he will be I will be there also. We even had the Climate Change meeting in Narewa.
    “For the last 18 years there were governments that came in and went but they did not resolve this title dispute of Tui Nadi or listened to the plight of the vanua o Nadi. It took some determination on the part of the Prime Minister to sort these issues out.
    “Other governments just kept on pushing it or it seems they did not care. Now the vanua has a head. If there was another government I am not sure whether they would solve this dispute or not.”
    Marama Tui Ba Adi Laite said Government’s determination to provide free education to villagers and n From
    all Fijians was an initiative worthy of praise.
    She said they had always pledged their support for the PM and they would continue to do so.
    “There are many things done by this Gov
    Tui Nawaka Ratu Asaeli Driu Naevo.
    Tui Nawaka Ratu Asaeli Driu Naevo.

    ernment. Roads leading to the villages in this area have been repaire

    d. Lives of our people have become better. Improvements in the heath care systems have also been noted.
    “All these things have made our lives better- those who live here and in this country,” Adi Laite said.
    Newly-installed Tui Nawaka Ratu Asaeli said he too supported the initiatives of the Government.
    He said his focus was on educating his villagers and he was adamant to change the mindset of the people.
    “We have to look forward and move ahead. There is no use being stuck in bad history. People need to adapt to change and move forward,” Ratu Asaeli said.

    Who's so desperate to see 'action' before the promised national elections but the BK regime and partners desperate to hold on to their ill-gotten wealth. Tragic lot since they haven't learn a thing in the last 8 years except to find ways to 'legitimise' their rule.

    And the SODELPA thugs in here plays right into their hands. SODELPA officials should issue statements condemning any form of violence and distance themselves from the thugs in their midst making immature statements on their behalf if they are to come across to the nation as a stable and credible party.

    Nice article in Fiji Times about Chandra Dulare's legacy at UniFiji. The departing vice chancellor of said a very emotional goodbye to the school that has been his second home for the past year.

    Leaving behind a legacy and lots of memories, Dr Dulare reflected on his past and how the university has been a crucial part in his life.

    But he did not reflect on how he absconded from USP after completing his PhD and still owes the country money. FICAC should catch him before he runs away overseas. He was a shit acting vice chancellor we are glad to see him go.

  31. what's this nonsense we hearing about 3 chiefs supporting Bainimarama's government? Didn't Bainimarama make the chiefs redundant after he took over and told the chiefs to go drink grog under the mango tree ?
    If chiefs are supporting Bainimarama then it is a confirmation that chiefs are indeed political opportunists who have been parasiting on their people - which is how Bainimarama himself described them.
    Chiefs in Fiji are mostly intellectually handicapped people. They should not be allowed to make any statement on behalf of anyone else.They just have one vote like everyone else. Or, are they going to go and vote on behalf of their villagers?

    Don't try to bullshit us . It is a well known fact that Bainimarama heaped insults on the chiefs when he took over the country - ILLEGALLY.
    there is no such thing as "without interference" in the Bainimarama regime's lexicon. they interfere in EVERYTHING - including manipulating the chiefs to serve their scheme to cling to power.
    The Bainimarama gang are doing what the colonialist used to do - use the chiefs to round up the people to tow the official line.
    And they are doing the same thing Rabuka also did after his coup. Use the chiefs to mobilise support for his vision of a future Fiji.
    We all know what happened to that.
    Rabuka was made redundant by the Fijians and their chiefs!
    Bainimarama's turn will come to get screwed by the chiefs he insulted.
    The chiefs are only acting good boys because they know Bai has the gun power right now.

  43. Mark Manning,

    Surely you don't mean that the regime should NOT be held to their word about the promised elections?! Or do you?

    Don't get me wrong, like you I also sympathise with the hardships that ordinary people face everyday and being severely restricted in what they can do about it because it all stems from bad leadership.

    Which is why I think Fiji should get to elections asap as a starting point to getting the nation "truly" back on track. So the emphasis and spotlight should remain there (electoral process) to ensure that it is fair, transparent and corrupt-free - that is so critical given the regime's extremely strong interest (bordering on desperate) to legitimize their rule and control over the obvious cover-ups to date.

    Political parties, if they're honest with themselves, and are worthy leaders, should know they have more than ample ammunition over the last 7 years at their disposal to 'shoot down' the BK party if and when it emerges.

    One of the most pressing challenges of course is the medium through which their political campaign can be hosted since the regime controls all media outlets... and the subtle measures they're bound to engage in in order to keep the playing field "unlevelled" in their favour.

    Time to get creative guys.

    I'm not a SODELPA supporter but I will tell you that there is a distinction to be made between supporting the GCC (as a forum comprising of all chiefs in Fiji which btw is a Constitutional body under the 1997 Constitution); and having the freedom to disagree and even criticism with reasonable justification those chiefs whose hold views that they do not agree with.

    I agree with you though that corruption was rife under the Rabuka and Qarase govts. What's to say this one (unelected regime) isn't? Or even worse, given the lack of good governance vis-a-vis transparency/accountability of esp. State funds.

    Rather than asking SODELPA's leadership to renounce violence, shouldn't we be demanding that Bainimarama's people renounce violence? After all, SODELPA hasn't committed any violence, and SODELPA hasn't threatened any violence. Neither has any of the other parties. Bainimarama is the only one who uses violence to achieve his aims.

    Why should we give a monopoly on violence to a tyrant who would use it, not to defend us, but to enrich himself at our expense and evade accountability for his crimes?

    You're right, I assumed wrong. My apology.

    Agree with you on demanding that the regime refrain from all types of violence including their draconian decrees.

    Yawn... it must be the late hour, just seen the reference on that earlier post of mine you correctly referred to re 'promised elections'. Can I safely assume that we're all talking about the upcoming 'promised elections' this Sept. Last one in 2009 was a broken promise. Sweet dreams.

  52. Anon 12.29am - you're forgetting Mandela's lesson - forgive and work with your enemies for a peaceful and better nation. This lesson however also applies to the current lot in power.

    SODELPA will gain more brownie points, the way Mandela did if they can show that much class when they form government.

  53. Well said and I do agree with you that the way forward is to forgive and also someone has to confess that what he has done is wrong and ask for forgiveness and he should be forgiven from the heart and the bad deed should be forgotten. And the process of reconciliation. Is done then all the problems should be identified and amicable solutions to be found then we can advance otherwise everything will stand still or move backward.

    Those chiefs who have spoken out in favor of baini are looking at themselves only and not at the bigger picture. Just fixing a road here and a bridge there does not, and will not, remove the truth that baini is a murderer with blood on his hands. He is a crook who is using government money without any accountability at all. I agree that SODELPA and SVT had shortcomings, but the fact is, they were elected by the people and did not force decrees on people like baini. Even up to now with a few months left before elections, baini is still not sure of himself. The danger here is that baini is a psycho and can change the rules whenever he wants to suit his propaganda. Elections will be held only when it is actually held. As the Fijian saying goes, sivi na koro qai kalu - you whistle only when you have passed the village.

  57. editor,
    The Fiji Times editorial 'Taking no sides' (16/1) is itself taking sides by not asking the hard questions about the conduct of the Fiji police as an handmaiden of the Bainimarama military dictatorship.
    The Fiji police has failed to maintain professional neutrality. It has been doing the regime's bidding from the very beginning.
    Eight years on it is far fetched to claim the Fiji police will not be taking sides and will be apolitical just because a regime appointed acting Police Commissioner says so.
    The Fiji Times editorial is try to sell a lie to the people of Fiji by uncritically accepting the Polcom's propaganda.
    The Fiji police force's failure to act in the public interest and for the public good is a matter of public record.
    The Polcom's propaganda and the Fiji Times editorial cannot gloss over it.
    The Fiji Times is now competing with the Fiji Sun to become a regime newsletter!
    They are a disgrace to honest journalism.

  61. editor,
    Someone has said above that those chiefs who have spoken out in favour of Bainimarama are looking after themselves only.
    Is the same also true for those people who write in to the local dailies to say "he[Bainimarama]will surely get my vote"? (Fiji Times 16/1). Are they sucking up to feather their own nest? I thought one's vote was secret. That's why a secret ballot is held in elections. Is the Fiji Times propagandizing for the Bainimarama regime by publishing such letters?
    The Fiji Times and the Fiji Sun should start a column where every eligible voter can declare who he or she is voting for. If they start now we'd have the election result well before the promised elections! After all Fiji only has some 400.000 voters - just like a village in Italy which probably has more voters!

  68. Isa, mark manning and his simplistic, child-like understanding and analysis. As the most populace Democracy on Earth, and hugely diverse at that, India has many problems. But on a per capita basis, reported cases of rapes in India are far less than in Fiji, or Australia for that matter. That is why there is such a outcry in India when a case of rape is reported, and rightly so.

    In Australia women and children are raped, molested and sometimes killed in daylight and in very public places. There was the rape and murder of a Filipino girl in Ipswich last year. For a country of its size, Australia is ais facing big problems with alcohol fuelled violent. King hits or coward punches are a big problem. But Mark manning's peanut and prejudiced mind cannot fathom concept of proportionality. mark, stick to you day job of nursing.

  70. To people who always rubbish Bainimarama."

    He is a messiah and madiba of Fiji.

    Prime Minister and Army Commander Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama will resign as Army Commander in March this year.

    Commodore Bainimarama has confirmed this to people during the talanoa session in Nakorovatu, Wailevu, as he continues his Northern Division tour.

    Commodore Bainimarama confirmed that he will resign from the Commander’s post in March to concentrate on his new political party for the general elections to be held later this year.

    Under the 2013 Constitution, the Army Commander is appointed by the President after advice from the Constitutional Offices Commission.

    In the transitional period, the Prime Minister will recommend the name of the new Army Commander to the President for appointment.

    Under the Political Parties Registration Decree, any member of the RFMF is classified as a public officer.

    It states that a public officer shall not be eligible to be an applicant, an official or a member of a proposed political party or a political party registered under the Decree.

    Based on this, Commodore Bainimarama has to resign from the Commander’s post.

    The decree makes it clear that a public officer must not engage in political activity that may compromise or be seen to compromise the political neutrality of that person’s office; or publicly indicate support for or opposition to any proposed political party or a political party or candidate in an election.

    Public officer means anyone holding any office in, or as member of, a statutory authority, a commission, an office of a judge, a magistrate or an office of any court or tribunal, public service, the Fiji Police Force, Fiji Corrections Services or the Republic of Fiji Military Forces; or a person who is an elected or appointed officer of a tradeunion or of any federation.

  87. Ten reasons why Bainimarama should not be Fiji's Head of Government:

    Reason 1: His overthrow of Fiji's lawful and democratically-elected government in 2006 constitutes treason, for which there is no statute of limitation. This reason alone demands Bainimarama's removal from government and trial for what is normally considered a capital offense.

    Reason 2: It is now clear that Bainimarama masterminded the 2000 hostage-taking in Parliament and coup attempt. This constitutes treason, for which there is no statute of limitation. This reason alone demands Bainimarama's removal from government and trial for what is normally considered a capital offense.

    Reason 3: Bainimarama forced President Iloilo to abrogate the Constitution in 2009, the Constitution Bainimarama was sworn to protect. This constitutes treason, for which there is no statute of limitation. This reason alone demands Bainimarama's removal from government and trial for what is normally considered a capital offense.

    Reason 4: Bainimarama allegedly ordered the murder of CRW soldiers in his custody. As prisoners, they were no longer combatants. At least one had no part whatsoever in the CRW mutiny. This was murder in cold blood, for which there is no statute of limitation. This reason alone demands Bainimarama's removal from government and trial for what is normally considered a capital offense.

    Reason 5: Bainimarama rules Fiji without sanction of law and at gunpoint. All Fijians are effectively his hostages. This demands his removal from government and a criminal sentence no less severe than that accorded to kidnappers with aggravated circumstances.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Reason 6: Bainimarama's 2006 coup invalidated Fiji's last lawful election. He then disenfranchised all Fijians, promising elections in 2009 and reneging. This demands his removal from government and prosecution to the fullest extent of the law.

    Reason 7: In 2009, Fiji's Court of Appeal ruled Bainimarama's government illegal and prescribed specific remedies. Instead, Bainimarama sacked Fiji's entire judiciary, forced the abrogation of the Constitution, and suspended all civil liberties. This demands his removal from government and prosecution to the fullest extent of the law.

    Reason 8: Under Bainimarama's economic mismanagement, Fiji has experienced the worst economic performance in its history, with sustained zero or negative growth. His 2006 coup damaged Fiji's tourism. His reneging on promises are directly and personally responsible for Fiji's forfeiture of $350 million from the EU for the reform and modernization of Fiji's sugar industry. He did not properly monitor the expenditure of $84 million in loans to the sugar industry from India, leading to the project's failure. He saddled Fiji's taxpayers with the FSC's huge debt, illegally cut pensions in half, substantially devalued Fiji's currency, caused the displacement of many farmers, borrowed huge sums at inflated interest rates, created a hostile business environment, caused greater poverty, leading to increased suicides and lower life expectancy, etc. The longer Bainimarama mismanages the economy, the more Fijians will die or slip into poverty.

    ReplyDelete
  89. Reason 9: Bainimarama is at the centre of a web of growing corruption. He illegally receives multiple salaries for the multiple cabinet positions he awarded himself. He illegally routes all payments through the accounting firm of Khaiyum's aunt, Nur Bano Ali. He prevents the publication of all public accounting reports, which are presumably damning of his management and operations. He is a close associate of Fulluck, which is the biggest Chinese human smuggler and prostitution ring in Fiji. He uses government agencies such as FICAC to harrass and punish his political opponents. He is the main cause for Heritage Foundation's downgrading of Fiji on its economic freedoms ranking. His regime's dealings are so murky that Transparency International cannot even conduct sufficient research with which to rank Fiji. He illegally awarded himself nearly $200,000 in leave pay going back 30 years. He provides no accounting of the money in his PM Flood Relief Fund or of the $5 million grant given to Bainimarama by the Chinese government for his discretionary use. The list could go on and on.

    Reason 10: Bainimarama has squandered much of the good will and international reputation Fiji has built up over its history by spurning Fiji's friends and embracing those who do not share its values or respect its interests. Because of Bainimarama, Fiji is the only country ever suspended from the Pacific Islands Forum. Because of Bainimarama, Fiji is also expelled from the Commonwealth. As a result of the military coup of 2006, the United States prohibited assistance to Fiji's military and joined with other countries in imposing various travel restrictions on those officials involved and their key supporters. He uses the Melanesian Spearhead Group as a tool for wedge politics designed to impair regional unity. He regularly denounces the very countries who have been Fiji's allies and defenders throughout its history, whilst courting countries whose influence could tip the regional security balance against Fiji's long-term interests. He aligns Fiji with totalitarian and repressive regimes notorious as state sponsors of terrorism while maligning Fiji's largest trade partners and most reliable aid donors. Etc., etc.

    I've now listed ten reasons why Bainimarama should and must go, and I've only scratched the surface on these. And apart from these ten, there are many other compelling reasons as well.

    I hope you think long and hard about the wisdom and morality of supporting such a man.

  90. to those who keep saying Bainimarama has done good for the kaivitis, let us be reminded of what he did and will do...'
    he got rid of their chiefs.
    he controls their right to have their church meetings and dictates the terms.
    he controls their right to practise their religion and dictates the terms.
    he controls their provincial councils and choses who and what is best for them.
    he controls their right to governance and dictates the terms.
    he controls their right to chose and how to use their lands and dictates the terms.
    he denies them their right to name their political parties in their own language and dictates the terms.
    he got rid of a constitution that protected their land rights, customs and traditions.
    he dictates what constitution they will have and its terms.
    he controls and dictates when and how their customs and traditions will be practised in the future under his constitution.
    he can change their land laws whenever he wants to like any other law.
    AND all these he has done and will do WITHOUT EVEN HAVING TO CONSULT THEM.
    His supporters think hes done great for them???
    this is not politics. THIS IS GENOCIDE guised as legal law making and governance.
    Only in Fiji. I am not Fijian but I support my brothers and sisters. Because this is the truth and it is right, legally and morally.
    FIGHTING FOR your indigenous rights is not being racist, the racists are the ones that deny and refuse to acknowledge your rights.

  91. The current opinion poll is that 90% of the Kaiviti DO NOT support this regime.

    Only 20% of the Fiji's rural population supports the regime.

    Labour and SODELPA will form the next government.

    The next PM will be the Marama na Roko Tui Dreketi and Deputy PM will be Mahendra Chaudary and Dr Baba

    The next President will be the former PM, Sitiveni Rabuka.

    The new Commander will be someone young, well respected and well educated within the the ranks.

    FNU will be dismantle and revert back to the old arrangement.

    Bainimarama and all his close cohorts will be tried for treason by the International Court especially on the ground of crime against humanity. The corruption charge against the AG will be dealt separately as this involved a complex web of networks from drug, money laundering involved Chinese nationals and some senior military personnel.Nur Bano and the Shamim sisters will have their own day in court.

    The GCC will be reconvened Chaired by the Turaga Bale na Tui Cakau.

    The Military will be slowly and progressively phasing out supervised by the US and Australia.

    The Qoliqoli Bill will be reintroduced just like the Maori Sea Bed claim that is now recognise by the New Zealand government and the MABO Legislation in Australia.

    This is the path to new Fiji, the Way the World should be.

  92. A gem from the pen of Dakuwaqa, nearly two years ago:

    "Bainimarama is taking the country forward alright -- straight to the abyss.

    "The best PM in Fiji's history? I know that some of Fiji's PMs have been rather disappointing, but really!

    "Let's review the record, shall we? Please correct me if anything I write is in error or in any way an exaggeration.

    "Your hero led a band of traitors in seizing your elected government and now holds the entire country at gunpoint. Indeed, we now know that Bainimarama was behind every coup attempt back to and including the 2000 attack on Parliament.

    "Bainimarama rubbished Fiji's constitution, took away your vote, censored your press, sabotaged the economy, plundered your pension fund, forbade gatherings of three or more, arrested and harassed human rights activists, stomped pregnant women, firebombed and tortured political opponents, dismissed the entire judiciary, hired mercenary magistrates from abroad, closed parliament, sold the country into ruinous loans, opened the country to organized crime, forbade church meetings, abolished Fijian cultural institutions, got the RFMF blacklisted from future peacekeeping operations, punished those who spoke the truth, appointed and promoted those who lied, etc., etc.

    "Your man is known far and wide as a bald-faced, inveterate liar. He's less than a grotesque mediocrity playing the part of a hero; he's a villainous traitor who subverted Fiji's imperfect democracy in order to avoid accountability for his crimes. He violated the trust reposed in his command, soiled and sullied his uniform and disgraced the RFMF by leading it in bullying and torturing the very citizens it is supposed to protect -- your neighbors and countrymen.

    "He denies you your right to elect your own civil and religious leaders, to voice your opinion on the street as freely as you do on this website, drink grog with mates of your choosing, petition this government peacefully for change, address labour grievances through collective bargaining, receive impartial justice from the courts, or expect accountability regarding the expenditure of your tax money. By disingenuously justifying his actions as necessary to achieve racial justice, he's severely harmed race relations in Fiji.

    At least you are enriching debate on this forum by talking about REAL stuff and not like others here DUMBING DOWN the debate to simpleton talk about retribution and other vulgar talk.

    I will say though that Fiji needs to bring back laws that give Parliament powers to confirm vanua solidarity in light of the destruction Fiji's many new churches and cults are inflicting on the day-to-day workings of the vanua.

    Not only were the English your neighbours, but its most likely that you and the Celts came from the same stock.

    If you trace what Anthrapologists say, they say that Celtics (English) came from Proto-Celtics and Proto-Celtics came from Indo-European background.

    The "Indo" part is obviously India.
    And early "Europeans" are what we call Caucasians.
    And Caucasians are basically from Africa ie black people.

    Anthrapologists say they originally migrated west from North Africa.

    That is what scientists say.

    Anyway I find it all interesting.

    This basically means that Indians and the English had similar Ancestry, most likely Africans ( or North Africans more accurately).

When living in Canberra he would email my friends in Sydney offering to pay for their holidays at his "home" in Fiji in return for somce action. Sick old man. if Daddy Pathik no longer his father in law, good on the old bastard. Daddy Pathik and daughter should know by now that Professor Mahendra Kumar is a repeat offender and they are the laughing stock. Dr Dulare is a nice man who did well for Unifiji that Professor of Kamasutra Mahendra Kumar did not. Daddy Pathik too busy licking arse, Son in law mounting and humiliating the who family. All bunch of sick twits

  103. BC, then why did you write that the English are indigenous to England?

  104. @ BC 9:54 AM Jan 17th.

    1. White is not a primary colour on its own. It is the sum of a myriad of colours which are the colours of the rainbow. Red, yellow and blue are the real primary colours.

    2. We are all descendants of apes and monkeys who were the previous inhabitants of all nations of the world before man came into being, as taught by science which I do not believe. Hence, to lay claim that we are indigenous to our mother land is categorically wrong if we are to believe this science.

    Just two pieces of tavioka to provoke our thoughts.

  105. BAINIMARAMA DAYS WILL SOON BE OVER ONCE HE RESIGNED FROM THE RFMF COMMANDER. WE ARE WAITING FOR THIS DAY TO TEST HIS CIVILIAN CAPABILITIES AND BRIBING PEOPLE WITH ALL SORTS OF TRUE OR FALSE PROMISES ONLY TIME WILL TELL. BAINIMARAMA KNEW FULLY WELL THAT THE GUNS ARE NO LONGER IN HIS HANDS FULL TIME AND IT IS WITH THE NEW MAYBE RFMF COMMANDER AZIZ AND PRESIDENT NAILATIKAU.

    THE KAIYUMS HAS ALREADY LAID HIS ESCAPE ROUTES WELL BEFORE WITH THE OTHERS WHEN THEIR HUMPTY DUMPTY FALLS BEGIN AND BAINIMARAMA WILL FOOT ALL THE BILLS AND BLAME BECAUSE THEY ALREADY PAID HIM TO BE THEIR HEAD AND HERO.

    TO YOU THE BAD KAIYUMS, KHANS AND ALIS MUSLIMS, KEEP YOUR EYES AND EARS WIDE OPEN IN THE NIGHT OR DAY FOR UNFAMILIAR SOUNDS AND HAVE THE LIBERTY TO SAY WHAT YOU WANT BUT REMEMBER NO HINDUS AND GOOD MUSLIMS LIKE ME BELIEVES YOU ANYMORE WITH BAINIMARAMA. COME THE GENERAL ELECTION IN 8 MONTHS TIME YOU WILL KNOW THE REAL TRUTH ABOUT US THAT WE THE 80% DO NOT SUPPORT THE ILLEGAL MILITARY REGIME HOLDING THEIR GUNS AT OUR HEADS AND FORCEFULLY REMOVED OUR FREEDOMS. WE WERE WELL PROTECTED UNDER THE GREAT COUNCIL OF CHIEFS LEADERSHIP ALTHOUGH FEW OF THEM WERE CORRUPTED BUT NOT 90% OF THEM. I AM AN INDIAN MUSLIM BUT NOT FIJIAN. THANK YOU.

    You are obviously a dickhead.
    Before you come and unload your bullshit on us, first go and read up Melanocytes and how they make skin colouring.

    Now that is a bit of Scientific Knowledge you need to familiarise yourself with.

    WHERE THE FARK DID YOU GET PRIMARY COLOURS to make WHITE COLOURS OF THE SKIN.

    THIS IS NOT PAINTING A HOUSE YOU MORON

    MELANOCYTES ARE ONLY MADE UP OF ONE COLOUR.
    SO FARK OFF.

    IDIOTS LIKE YOU SHOULD THINK BEFORE YOU WRITE THINGS.

  108. Combine the colours of the rainbow, and you end up with a murky brown colour, not white.

  114. It's simple physics. If you shine a beam of white light through a a glass prism, the white light is refracted into the colours of the rainbow. Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.
