Fiji election breaches should be denounced by Australia and New Zealand

Bainimarama accused of stealing SODELPA colours
Caught breaching its own decree, trying to steal another party's name, another's party colours - what next?

Predictably, the regime is turning a deaf ear to criticisms and blithely going ahead as though it's business as usual.

But a series of breaches have now exposed the regime's lack of transparency and ongoing unfair treatment of political parties and it should be investigated and eliminated from the election.

Australia and New Zealand and the international organisations who've supported the regime's elections plans all need to acknowledge the sham and put pressure on the Suva administration to right the wrongs, if they are to retain any credibility.

The breaches, committed by both Frank Bainimarama and Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum, are major and can't be ignored.

There is irrefutable evidence Khaiyum registered himself the name Bainimarama is using for the elections, Fiji First, in November 2009, then re-registered it again in January this year.

Bainimarama has meanwhile been campaigning 'officially' for more than a fortnight, despite not having registered his party, and has been allowed to collect the required 5,000 signatures as he goes. 

Khaiyum's Political Parties Decree says no individual or organisation is allowed to campaign or act as a party until it has been registered.

Fiji police are supposedly investigating four complaints already laid against Bainimarama, including exerting influence on election officials and naming a candidate before he had even registered, but there has been no outcome, let alone comment.

Neither has the Supervisor of Elections, Mohammed Saneem, voiced or noted any concern about the breaches or complaints.

That is to be expected. Saneem, the regime's former Permanent Secretary for Justice, was appointed Supervisor amid controversy by Khaiyum.

The United Front for a Democracy has challenged the  appointment saying Saneem wasn't recommended by New Zealand, Australia or 'private experts' as claimed by Khaiyum after Australian Laurie McGrath turned down the role.

UFDF, who asks what happened to the other 10 candidates who applied, says Saneem was too young to have even voted in 2006.

Fiji media are today reporting Bainimarama has delayed registering his party but is still travelling the country collecting votes and he and Dr Jiko Luveni are due to open a womens resource centre in Bua on Friday.

School principals have meanwhile been warned by the permanent secretary for the Public Service Commission, Parmesh Chand, not to engage in any political campaign or activity.

Chand says principals cannot be seen to be using their influence as it is prohibited by the Political Parties Decree, the very same decree that is being breached left right and centre by the regime.

Proposed party defers registration

07:10 Today

Taken from/By: FBC News
Report by: Apisalome Coka
The proposed Fiji First political party has deferred registering with the Elections Office.
The proposed party which was to have registered yesterday is still collecting more signatures.
FBC NEWS understands proposed party leader Voreqe Bainimarama will move to areas which he is yet to visit to gather signatures.
The proposed party is also awaiting signatures from the maritime zones.
Bainimarama will finalise the numbers then apply for registration with the Elections Office.
The Political Parties decree says a party must have at least 5000 members from all four divisions of Fiji – 2000 from the Central Division, 1750 members from the West, 1,000 from the North and 250 members from the Eastern Division.

Why can't Mohammed Saneem be as forceful in upholding the Political Parties Registration Decree as Ashwin Raj is in upholding the Media Decree?

Yeah, it's just a question of whose toast is being buttered.

Bainimarama is having trouble finding anyone to register in Fiji First. Guess there aren't as many traitors around as he thought. But he can't let that stop him from campaigning or from launching yet another coup, if "need be".

The most high-profile scandal was in the Ministry of Agriculture (MOA), where more than FJ$18 million was used without proper authorization. As we saw earlier, agricultural development was a common target of affirmative action in the immediate post-independence period; but after the 1987 coups there was a shift towards developing an indigenous entrepreneurial class. One of the reasons for this change was the prominent support by the rural poor for the 2000 coup. Rural villagers turned up to parliament in their hundreds to publicly express their grievances and support the coup. There was a realization amongst those who drafted the 20YP that addressing rural poverty was critical in the long run for both national development and political stability.

The scam came to light after an audit by the auditor general and published in his report for the tear 2000. The report revealed that out of a total of FJ$18,344,696 used on affirmative action, FJ$2,093,599 was incurred in 2000 and FJ$11,059,129 in 2001; and there were outstanding payments totalling FJ$5,191,968. Of the outstanding payments, a total of FJ$1,421,141 of unpaid vouchers were held back due to lack of funds; FJ$676,072 worth of Local Purchase Orders (LPOs) had been issued but not paid; and there was a total FJ$3,094,755 of orders made without LPOs (Fiji Office of Auditor General 2002).

Most of the money was spent on farming implements and dalo (taro) suckers for planting. A total of FJ$3,094,754.75 worth of farming implements were purchased from Suncourt Hardware, a company owned by a prominent Indo-Fijian company, at inflated prices. As Table 6.8 shows, the prices of farming implements from Government Supplies, where implements for government use were normally sourced, were considerably cheaper than the Suncourt Hardware prices. This became a central issue in later police investigations and subsequent court cases which led to the conviction and imprisonment of some government officials and the Suncourt managing director.

What about the BIGGER scam of Bainimarama paying himself $1million a year salary via Nur Bano.

Blatantly disregarding the Ministry of Finance.

That is not even a scam but a total disregard and a total lack of respect for the people of Fiji.

Even people who commit adultery do it in the dark and hide, BUT THESE TWO ARSEHOLES HAVE NO SHAME.


How come FICAC turned a blind eye to this madness?
How come the Police turned their backs to the people of Fiji?

The Head of Police and Head of FICAC should hang their heads in shame.


No one should associate themselves with Bainimarama.

The decrees they put in place obviously protects them although Beddoes has gone to the police to report on frankie's numerous violations.

The shades of blue are quite different to that on his party bus by the looks of it here, overall no doubt that frankie has stolen the colour like the selfish tyrant that he is.

But SODELPA's got my vote anyways.

The agriculture scam was a bit like Bainimarama's sewing machine scam, wasn't it? But the sewing machine scam is probably amongst the least of Bainimarama's transgressions, wouldn't you say? I mean, the accusations regarding Bainimarama's plunder of the state coffers alone already quite dwarf the ag scam, don't they? And that's saying nothing about his murders, tortures, treason, etc.

Give out all of the lollies you like. We'll take them all, since we paid for them. But just because we take your lollies, doesn't make us suckers, sucka!

I was sacked from SODELPA: Rabuka
13:01 Today

Taken from/By:
Report by: Shanal Sivan
Former Prime Minister Sitiveni Rabuka says he did not quit from the Social Democratic Liberal Party, but was sacked.
Speaking to FBC News, Rabuka claims members of the Party objected to his application as a candidate, citing his coup of 1987.
I was dismissed from the party yesterday; in plain language I was sacked. I was just told that a group within the party objected to my membership and also to my selection as a candidate.
Rabuka says politician Mick Beddoes, who has applied for place in the party, wrote an opinion article sent to media organisations – objecting Rabuka and Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama’s participation in the 2014 general elections.
Mick Beddoes wrote an opinion on me and admiral Frank, painting us to the same brush saying why should we be standing for elections, so there have a lot of internal and now with Mick Beddoes jumping into the frey, I could gauge that i think my service was no longer required, in there anyway.
Meanwhile Beddoes told FBC NEWS, he has been interviewed for a position in the SODELPA, but has not received any concrete response, thus his opinion article is not affiliated with SODELPA.
SODELPA General Secretary Pio Tabaiwalu declined to comment on the issue.

Former businessman Benjamin Padarath was sentenced by the Suva Magistrate Court this morning for swearing in public. Padarath has been bound over for a sum of $500, by the Court, ordered not to re-offend and maintain good behaviour. He was convicted of a count of using abusive language in a public place. Padarath earlier pleaded not guilty but was found guilty after the trial, with three witnesses. The court heard in 2010, Padarath swore at woman while she was waiting for her sister in a car at Victoria Parade Suva. The court also heard, Padarath lost his real estate business and because the shame of his offence had a big impact on his family

I predict that Rabuka would have pulled more votes than Mick Beddoes would any day. It seems to me that Beddoes is vying for Deputy Leadership with SODELPA. If the party executives are half way intelligent, they will give the position to an Indo-Fijian.

Beddoes needs to retire and leave the politics to newer faces. He has always been a fence-sitter and an opportunist. SOLDEPA just keep a close eye on this Kailoma.

The Movie Transcedence is a warning to citizens the world over about how foreign nations are polluting our environment with nano technology.Nano tech has created robots as minute as our DNA-Gene, and atom molecules like H2O-water that enables scientists to create water and other matter using nano technology.This is the reason why the Japanese Scientisits are conducting research in Whales because they feed on planktons.Nano Tech can produce man made planktons that are fed upon by Whales that would affect those who eat them.Whales are good subjects for scientific research because they 1. travel all over the Globe. 2. Are huge in size so are easier to track and monitor. The Movie has shown us what scientists can do.create matter or atomic molecules or DNA Gene that are the foundation or building blocks of animal or human species.It is a warnign as I have warned you before about the CHEMTRAILS.Chemtrails are the depositing of nano tech robots on our atmoshpehere by Airplanes.The indicator is that naturally burnt airplane fuel emmitted by airplane engine exhausts TAKE ONLY A FEW SECONDS TO DILUTE OR DISAPPEAR FROM THE AIR OR THE TRAILS BEHIND THE JETS TAKE ONLY A MINUTE TO BE DILUTED BUT CHEMTRAILS TAKE LONGER THAN 10-20MINUTES IN THE AIR,YOU WILL SEE JET TRAILS LINGERING IN THE AIR LONG AFTER THE JET HAS PASSED,WHY?

Proposed Fiji First Party extends registration drive
Publish date/time: 25/04/2014 [12:57]

The proposed Fiji First Party has extended it's registration drive for another few weeks.

Proposed party leader Voreqe Bainimarama said the extension is due to many expressing their interest to sign up for the proposed party.

Prior to the extension, Bainimarama had said he intended to conclude his registration by this Tuesday.

The Commerce Commission, Vonu beer and competition said...

Dear Sir,
Several years ago, I queried why the Commerce Commission had allowed Carlton Brewery (then virtually a beer monopoly in Fiji) to take over South Pacific Distillery, Fiji’s only rum producer, also benefiting from substantial duty protection at great cost to consumers.
Despite this takeover leading to a clear lessening of competition in Fiji’s alcohol consumption market, the Commerce Commission strangely made no objection.
Recently, a major soft drink multinational producer/retailer, also enjoying substantial market power (a favorite phrase of Dr Reddy, the Chairman of Commerce Commission), took over Carlton Brewery, thereby increasing its concentration of market power in the broader “drinks” market.
There was apparently no objection from the Commerce Commission although in the comparable media industry, owners of shares in television, radio stations and magazines, have been forced by decree (and at some loss) to choose between the sub-media and not have cross-media ownership.
Now it seems that the manufacturer of Fiji Beer has also taken over the manufacturer of Vonu Beer, eliminating even that tiny bit of competition in the domestic beer producers’ market.
Can the Commerce Commission publicly explain why this has been allowed, so that curious students and economics lecturers (if any still exist in Fiji) can better understand the subtle functions of the Commerce Commission?
We are still waiting for a response from the Chairman of CC to my questions (through these columns) on his failure to regulate the exorbitant retail prices set by mobile companies, and the equally exorbitant prices on the domestic routes set by the monopoly Fiji Airways (with the monopoly profits no doubt assisting considerably in the miraculous payment of dividends to its shareholders).
I would plead with Mrs. Premila Kumar (of Consumer Council) to desist from answering on Dr Reddy’s behalf, as she rashly attempted when voluminously evading my question on why the Consumer Council was not tackling some companies who were targeting children in their advertisements for chicken sales.

The proposed Fiji First Party has extended it's registration drive for another few weeks because "so many are expressing their interest to sign up"?


Bainimarama said the same thing about the so-called Constituent Assembly, yet in the end he couldn't find enough suppotas to fill it.

If Fijians were flocking in droves to register in Fiji Fart, then the party would be registered by now, and the regime would be crowing -- CROWING -- about how popular it is, how quickly it obtained its signatures, how the Lauans love it, etc.

Extending the registration period wouldn't be necessary if the party has received the requisite number of signatures in order to register. There's nothing to say that voters cannot still register with a party after it's been registered as a party by the illegal regime. The party can register first and then continue to recruit new members without interruption. SODELPA, FLP, NLP and PDP are registered parties, and yet they continue to recruit new members. What's stopping Fiji Fart from doing the same thing, if it's not the fact that the party cannot find enough real suppotas?

The other parties didn't need to extend THEIR registration drives in order to register under the Political Parties Decree! And, anyway, do you suppose the regime ever would have granted an extension to them if they HAD applied for an extension?

Of course, you might have missed it, since neither Canberra nor Wellington ever raised a peep in protest, but this regime wrote its decree in such a way that it wouldn't have to meet the same deadline it imposed on the other parties. Not exactly fair now, was it? Not trying very hard to meet minimal international election standards that, wot?

You gotta give it to that Sayed-Khaiyum, though, eh? He showed remarkable foresight that time -- just as he showed it when he registered the party's domain name back five years ago and when he denied the name to Santa Mahara and his people. Remarkably prescient, that guy! Maybe he ca already tell us the upcoming election results, too.

But I digress.

Why is it that a ruling political "party" that (according to the Fiji Sun's polling) would supposedly receive the votes of nearly nine out ten eligible Fiji voters, now need extra time to register, unless it cannot scrape up enough registered voters to qualify as a party?

Gee, just on the basis of the number of regime trolls commenting in this website, I would have thought that the regime could at least scrape together enough members to register a party. Or do you suppose that all of those comments were actually posted by just a handful of people -- sort of like when Bainimarama suddenly surged to the top of Vodafone's popular personality poll, on the basis of a torrent of texts found to have been sent in from just two cellphones, both of which were located inside QEB?

And something else isn't right here. How could the regime be having this much trouble getting its party registered, when the Fiji Sun shows its candidate is one hundred times more popular than a party that did register under the deadline? Gosh, doesn't that kind of make it sound like Bainimarama is less popular than Nirmal Singh?

Hmmm, I wonder. You don't suppose that the Fiji Sun's polling might be way off? I mean way, WAY off? Or might it even be that the Fiji Sun is actually lying to us!? My goodness, didn't its people take any notes when they attended Graham Davis' lectures on journalistic ethics?

So, what happens next? What happens when a desperate dictator throws a party for himself, but nobody comes?

Stand by to find out!

Wow, devastating commentary by JSL! The regime needs to find some signatures soon.

Its spinmeisters will have trouble explaining it if it doesn't.

Fiji will more than likely NOT be having elections this year. If elections do take place, then a coup can be expected if Bainimarama loses the elections, or Khaiyum will “rig” the election results in their favour.

We are already seeing activities to support rigged and fraudulent elections – This includes:
No exit polling
the complex ballot
minimum time allowed for “other” political parties to campaign
no media freedom
no freedom of speech
the illegal constitution forced onto the people of Fiji
the illegal electoral decree
lies and broken promises
deliberate breaches of their own electoral decree
the corrupt and puppet electoral commission
no rule of law
military officer in senior government positions
the inexperienced, unqualified and puppet supervisor of elections

Good point. And it goes back to something that Situational Logic also stated so well. Canberra, Wellington, Washington, Brussels, etc. all need the regime to at least seem to observe minimal international standards for elections in order for them to be able to declare, however disingenuously, that democracy is restored to Fiji. Emphasis on MINIMAL standards. These are not high expectations, given the likelihood Frank will rig the elections.

The problem is that the stitching on the fig-leaf is rapidly unraveling due to the regime's clumsy machinations. Every revelation is adding to the embarrassment and making it increasingly difficult for the major powers to pretend democratic elections are being observed here.

Given the litany of abuses, many of which Anon 2:18 hasn't even touched upon, how is British PM Cameron, on the advice of Sec Hague, supposed to face Parliament after criticising the Sri Lankan government and the Muslim Brotherhood but giving Bainimarama a free pass?

Similarly, how is Sec. Kerry, who no longer harbours personal political ambitions but is looking to his legacy, supposed to certify to Pres. Obama that democracy is restored to Fiji? And how is Pres. Obama supposed to give his own such certification to the U.S. Congress? The criticism he would deservingly face in Congress would come from incredulous fellow Democrats and Republicans alike.

If the regime continues on this tack, it might as well forget about having the elections at all, because the appearance of legitimacy it wants to achieve simply won't be there. And even the major powers will be too abashed to pretend it is.

In short, the regime does not presently meet even the most minimal international standards for elections, and the Emperor's new clothes are looking more threadbare with each passing day.

Fiji’s overall standard of living has declined sharply. In the UN Human Development Index (HDI) Fiji was raked 46 in 1995. Its ranking fell to 86 in 2008. The latest data in 2012 indicates it has slipped to 96 out of 187 countries behind Tonga which was ranked 95.

Fiji’s life expectancy had declined from 73 in 2000 to 69 in 2012, less than that for Tonga and Samoa at 73. But this is hardly indicative of the ground reality. According to statistics quoted in a WHO report (2011), Fiji people are dying young – shockingly only 16 % live beyond 50 and 8% past 60.

As a neutral observer, one must recognize that the last 20 years have seen a massive deterioration of eating habits by the people of Fiji themselves, who turned their back on proper diet. Rice, 2 minutes noodle, excessive intakes of salt, etc.... Blaming a government for that is a little bit too much. When one is familiar with the careless attitude of local towards health and the impact of processed food, then one can only conclude that the same results would happen no matter which government is in place. Look at how many people have teeth in Fiji and that will tell you how much Coca Cola is drank here....OMG...it's Coca Cola games right now!!!!! what a shame.

But what is more significant is that this deterioration has primarily been with the i Taukei population.

Unfortunately, when the uneducated are able to get access to such things as more TV, videos, cheaper alcohol and junk food they will naturally take the easy route and preparing proper meals becomes something they no longer have time for.

It has little to do with poverty but more a lack of responsibility.

High Tea,

I agree with your analysis but for all our collective benefit, it is better to "roll" with the Machiavellian thinking in Govt and to have elections. It's either that or no elections at all in which case Fiji will be sent into deeper isolation and there will be greater risks of instability.

To go the way of elections though will mean lesser risk of stability albeit while offering this regime some legitimacy (assuming it does win the election).

Bottom line is it is better for all of us to have elections, the alternative leaves of all of us, including this Regime losers in the long run!

Referring to your Apr 25 8:26 PM.

I am one of the regime "advocates" who troll on this thread. However, I will not vote for the Fiji First Party and have not even registered as as a supporter of the party. There are many of us. We are probably why Bainimarama has deferred registering the party. This is so because of lack of support.

Anonymous @4:49 PM, thank you for your posting.

Having read and re-read it with interest, I remain somewhat confused. Perhaps you can clear up my confusion.

You acknowledge that you are a "regime advocate" but say you are unregistered and will not be voting for Bainimarama. You say there are many like yourself.

The allusion to "many" implies significant support for Bainimarama, and yet you conclude by saying that he suffers from a lack of support, which seems rather contradictory to me.

Perhaps you could clarify matters by explaining why you and the others to whom you allude will not be voting for Bainimarama, even though you are regime advocates.

Is it because: a) you do not live in Fiji; b) you're not Fijian citizens; c) you fear being identified as supporters of treasonists; d) you're otherwise ineligible to vote; e) some combination of these reasons; or f) some other reason?

Thank you for your candor and willingness to dialogue.

Instability is the only way to overthrow a government. A revolution is not a dinner party.

Bainimarama's is an illegal, illegitimate regime. Restoring Fiji's legitimate government is our patriotic duty.

Were the upcoming elections to be held in a free and fair manner, then it would of course make sense to let the people elect our government, even if it meant electing Bainimarama.

But every indication to date betrays the regime's intent to rig the elections. And what else were we to expect from a regime led by thugs of low character? It's also evident that Canberra and the others are willing to play along with the charade.

Bainimarama stealing the government through electoral fraud is little different than his stealing it through naked force. Our duty will remain the same but be infinitely harder to achieve.

So, with all due respect, it is utter folly for us to wait. For those who love Fiji, the time to act is now.

Seriously!! You want to destabilize the government, Then why dont you do something about it rather than posting your stupid idea in this asshole of a blogsite.
Bainimarama will win the election and you and this blogsite will shut down and tow the line, eh comprende.

Anonymous said...

High Tea is right. It only makes sense to wait for the elections if they are going to be free and fair. Anyone with any sense knew years ago that they'd be fixed instead, and the regime's actions since then has only confirmed that expectation. So why wait further, when the usurper has already rigged the elections?

If it seems hard to act now, how much more after the regime has announced that Bainimarama has "won" election by "a landslide"?

If we act now, we might not be able to force the regime to play fair, but it will be harder for the international community to ignore our plight and to play along with Bainimarama's cynical plan.

The September election is a well disguised election and an evil scam to create false hopes for a new beginning to a better future. Unless we change the rules, it will remain so. The critical question is what are we going to do about it and when? Both the what and when of our responses as good Fiji citizens will determine Fiji's quality of life and history in the next one or two decades.
