Election date and party named as Bavadra's daughter rekindles NFP links

DRAUNIDALO: NFP's new president

So we've been told at last: the name of Frank Bainimarama's political party and the date the election will be held: Fiji First Party and September 17.

It follows the release of the overdue Electoral Decree 2014. 
 

More on the decree later but significant development today with the announcement by the National Federation Party that lawyer, Tupou Draunidalo, has been elected president.



The stepdaughter of Fiji's shortlived 1987 prime minister, Timoci Bavadra, is the first i-taukei to ever be elected president of the country's oldest Indian party.
 

REACTION TO ELECTORAL DECREE
Draunidalo's affiliation is not surprising: it was a coalition after all between her father's Fiji Labour Party and NFP that led to the loss by the Alliance Party and country's first coup a month later by Sitiveni Rabuka.

Also this weekend has come reassurances the international community will be allowed to send observers to the election.
Australia is expected to head the team.


Australia's Foreign Minister, Julie Bishop, has released a statement hailing the announcement of the polling day, blithely unaware the regime has already announced the director of operations, even as the Fiji Sun and the election website say the closing day for the position is April the 14th.

Footnote: The manager human resources and the manager IT have been sacked from the election office after over a missing laptop (see C4.5 story last month). Both have been told in 'diplomatic terms' their service is no longer required as of tomorrow Monday March 31.

From FT 3rd April 2014

"" Ratu Timoci explained that people living in the villages were living in poverty and were becoming non-religious, lazy and refusing to partake in village activities. ""

Well that really sums things up.

Wadan at 10.16 pm, use your real name. If you know so much fact about Biman, be brave and use your name. If you are a pant wetter, learn the truth about USP, Biman, Nilesh Goundar and Mahen Reddy,ask staff at USP, the HR and Research Committee there, your eyes will pop out!

Latest from Sodelpa - Sodelpa still has 90% Fijian support all over Fiji!

Unfortunately, the "Market and Bus Stand survey" conducted by the Fiji Sun has no relevance to the outcome of the election as it is a very subjective way of conducting a survey! Ask anyone who has been asked by Fiji Sun at the market or the bus stand and they will tell you the sloppy questioning and one sided process involved.

O FFP me sa tu vakadua sara mada ga ena Bus Stand kei na Makete baleta e ganiti iratou na ga na lewena na veitalanoa ni makete kei na bus stand! Hahahahahahahahaha. Vinaka Sun!!!

Rajesh Singh any plans to return to Fiji? I think that is your best option. Last year we were willing to buy your airline ticket, so let me talk to those people who were going to contribute. Let me know if you want me to talk to this people. We need you in Fiji so that we can collect our money. I am sure people at NFP also will be happy to see you. You can pay them their %5000 which you owed them for long time.

God Bless NZ

Both biman and Nilesh are outstanding scholars under attack from jealous academic and political rivals, but they should not worry, people are not fooled by smear campaigns.

To the one solitary anti-rajesh singh campaigner... enough with picking on a bone with no meat. Pick on the idiots on Facebook sniffing around conman Ranjendra Chaudhry, wake up Vasiti and Jese Sikivou - you are costing SODELPA votes by supporting Chaudhry and FLP.

As much as I would love to see Frankie behind bars, its going to take a strong politician to oust his FijiLast Party (since the people themselves are not all aware about his dark side).

After all, whoever wins the elections will have the other politician jailed as this is how I see it.

But then again, I hear Beddoes is trying to have frankie arrested for late registration of his party although the decrees made by Khaiyum protect both their rears and covering up the truth also.

Jagath Karunaratne applies for bail variation
Publish date/time: 01/04/2014 [14:48]

The Suva Magistrates Court is expected to deliver a ruling this Friday in relation to a bail variation application made by former Sri Lankan national Jagath Karunaratne.

Karunaratne, who is charged with writing seditious comments in public places in 2011, is seeking variation in his bail condition.

His lawyer Aman Ravindra Singh asked the court if his client could be allowed to report to any police station between Suva and Lautoka.

Singh also asked the court if the curfew imposed on Karunaratne could be lifted as his client has not breached the bail condition in the two years.

The hearing yesterday proceeded in the absence of the DPP lawyer.

The case will be called this Friday.

It is alleged that between the 21st and 27th of August 2011, Karunaratne and four others conspired to do an act, mainly writing seditious words in public places and billboards along Nausori and Suva, with a seditious intention and thereby purported to bring into hatred or contempt or to excite dissatisfaction against the Government of Fiji.

Now it has been confirmed that the $1.5 million was give to Chaudhry by poor Indians in India so that Chaudhry family could settle in Australia-Fiji was too dangerous for this friend of the poor.Chaudhry and family have stayed put in Fiji comfortably.The money should be returned to India to be distributed to the poor.That's the only honourable thing for Chaudhary to do.He took the money under false pretences -that is a crime.He has put his family in Fiji and India to shame.

How could Karunanratne's actions be seditious when this "government" had already been ruled illegal by the Appeal Court?
