|BLATANT BREACH: First it was the coat of arms, now it's this.|
Fiji's self-appointed prime minister has been caught for a second time breaching the Electoral Decree as he continues to chase votes for the September 17 election.
Frank Bainimarama's Fiji First Party is clearly promoted right at the top of the Elections Office page.
We quote from the Decree:
Section 113 Prohibition on use of State resources to campaign
(1) It shall be unlawful to use State authority, including law and tax enforcement authorities, to pressure or intimidate political opposition.
(2) It shall be unlawful for any public officer to conduct campaign activities.
Bainimarama and his Party are already being investigated by the Fiji police after using the country's coat of arms on his campaign bus the first week he outed his party.
The complaint has been brought by Mick Beddoes of the United Front for a Democratic Party.
Beddoes has also complained about Bainimarama campaigning before he registered his party.
|The name Fiji First was already taken.|
Readers can go to the Elections page itself to see how Bainimarama's propaganda team, Qorvis, are using government resources unfairly to get votes for him.
We'll also keep a track on how long it stays up there.
