Media sign-offs show Saneem lied about vote counting being stopped




Media reports prove the Supervisor of Elections, Mohammed Saneem, is lying when he says electoral teams never stopped counting and have been counting 24 hours non-stop. 

Reports from Fiji media teams covering the election show the counting was clearly brought to a halt early this morning, without warning or explanation.

A video report from the Republika team based at the media centre shows them detailing the last results at 6am, just after Saneem announced it, with team leader Ricardo Morris saying "We'll be back when the results continue to come in towards the later part of this afternoon."

Morris also says Saneem has now 'verified the pre-polling and the postal ballot', which would be added to the total votes cast.

Updates on social media early this morning also back up reports the election office had stopped releasing results.

C4.5 was as alarmed as others to read the counting had stopped and would resume today at 4pm. It's unheard of, especially if votes are being counted electronically.




Opposition political parties today rejected the results which show Fiji First in the lead, but Saneem claims the counting had never stopped saying it had continued even when he'd gone home and during the day.




If that's the case, why did Fiji media pack it in for the night? 

The only reason they did that is because the Electoral Office had stopped releasing results, presumably because they had stopped counting. 

Because if they were still counting as he says, why weren't they passing the results on?

It appears the counting came to a halt when Fiji First had a clear lead - 60.2% per cent of the votes - the last result given out this morning at 6am, the one recorded by a tired Republika team before they bid us goodnight.

The results the media teams last publicised were the same ones circulated today - until 1pm when both reporters and the Electoral Office posted the 'latest update'.

So, why where there no results between 6am and 1pm, if votes were still being counted? Can Saneem tell us that?

Can he also tell us why the monitoring teams were not told the counting had come to a halt - as they should've been. 

And can he tell us the total number of votes cast, the number of valid votes and the number of invalid votes - as well as the total number of postal votes.

The opposition parties rightfully now question the results which put Fiji First at 60.10%, SODELPA just under 26.70%, NFP at 5.6%, PDP  3.5% and FLP at 2.4%

The parties say they have evidence of coordinated and systematic electoral fraud and want the counting of all pre-polling and postal ballots suspended.


They also want the verification of provisional results, saying ballot boxes have been tampered with, removed from polling stations without being counted and large sized files have been placed in ballot boxes by opening the seals.

Both the multinational observers and the regime insist there have been no breaches but as they say watch this space.

Editor's Note: Just one provisional result was released today, the one at 1pm. Verified results are reportedly due out tomorrow (Friday).

THE ELECTION DECREE FORBIDS ANY SUSPENSION OF COUNTING. HOW CAN THEY SUSPEND IT. CAN SOMEONE DONG THEIR SANEEM'S THICK SKULL.

He is a Dickhead no Brainer left Cherry of AG's Balls. Now and than runs off to his boss AssGiver[AG]of Bai to tell him he has lost count of the rigged ballot papers and needs to stop so as to reconcile the lies and con job they are doing. And again their minions siting on their computers cooking up statistics to favor Fiji First Puaka's.

I see a lot of cry babies on the video.
They are losers and can't accept the loss.
The biggest crybabies are chaudhary and bed does.
Just accept that you all have lost and the true leader and party Fijifirst will remain in power for next 3 elections.
Chaudhary and Kepas should resign as both have let their parties down.
Go fiji first - ignore the crybabies!

Really. You call them cry babies. Isn't it everyone's LEGAL obligation and right to get to the bottom of this voting crisis because counting is suspended indefinitely. With no time frame given.

The world knows that this election was an oiled machinery because a dictator still decides the rules of the animal farm and Khaiyum the maker is the Election Minister. What a coincident. No one should rest until the cock-roaches are smoked out and vilified.

In 8 years the nation cried for the truths to prevail and 2 were recently answered. Satan surprises Bai when his 45 strong army turned cowards to the real fighter group (Al-Nusra) and the 45 cowards raised white flag throwing his 8 years of toughen-up-guys straight into the toilet hole. Then again he was caught red-handed throwing a punch on the NZ TV lady. After all his name Bai ni 'marama' linking himself to bullying woman was truly linked and exposed on video to the world. So his hole was dug up.

So now the candidates are simply questioning the motives behind the stoppage because they have every right to dig out the cock-roaches and disease. Remember everyone suspects the refined election machinery is producing fakes outcome.

So Cry Babies are actually the Crying Nation.

How terrible for these opposition parties to oppose democracy.

Instead of accepting the results of an election observed by reps of many democracies, including key people as international observers, including former New Zealand deputy Prime Minister Wyatt Creech who oversaw the election, SODELPA and others have saddled up next to a known thief (known by both races) Mahendra Chaudhry.

Instead of accepting the results, and proving their worth to voters in opposition, the opposition parties have caused political and economic instability which will arouse fears of another coup and only hurt Fiji's working poor.

The opposition's concerns in Chaudhury's letter are laughable.

Envelopes in Ballot boxes are standard. They have the same thing in Canadian elections because that's where the ballots are placed after the count and they remain there in case of a court-ordered audit.

The other concerns have no evidence or proof.

Within a week, this will be settled and we can get on with governing this country.

No qustion but that the counting was stopped, Saneem's statement notwithstanding. Perhaps the reason for the stoppage is innocent, or perhaps it is not. The Election Commission owes us an explanation.

The Election Commission does not owe the nation an explanation. They are the selected crew appointed by Frank and Aiyaz to carry out unlawful duties.

And even if they did have an explanation, are we to expect any honest truth for the sudden stoppage?

NO...THEY ARE LIARS!!

Read Aiyaz's actions...he set up camp at government buildings... didnt he already indicate a sure sign of Victory in advance?

All that was missing was an uphoisted black flag with white inscriptions that is spreading terror, hate, fear throughout the Middle East and the entire world.

I was present at the pre-poll,polling and the counting at the polling station,i support FFP present with me were other election officers who are pro-sodelpa,we have talked about our individual parties,no one even the presiding officers cannot play around,the election officials all support different parties,some are sodelpa,fiji first,labour,nfp supporters.The party agents were present during the first votes cast until it was sealed at 6pm,we verified every ballot box and witnessed by signing,including the party agents,then the ballot boxes were re-opened, the same ballot box the votes were cast in,as i said,every official present supported different parties so no one play around, many of us civil servants are pro-sodelpa so if anything was suspicious they will take note including the party agents.The provisional results are those that the presiding officers have released through the mobile phone.When it became clear that PM's number was chosen by many all over Fiji,the election officials then decided to stop announcing the provisional,so they decided to wait for the actual ballot box to arrive to count it for themselves,as i said,we election officials are supporters of different parties,no one can play around,we are all alert on whats going on in the polling and counting.IF THE OTHER PARTIES DISPUTE THE PEOPLES DECISION,THEN WE OF FIJI FIRST PARTY SUPPORTERS ARE READY FOR ANOTHER ELECTION,KEVAKA O NI SA SEGA NI VAKABAUTA,IO,DUA TALE NA ELECTION.WE ARE READY.CHURCH GROUPS HAVE PRAYED AND FASTED FOR THE RESULTS OF THIS ELECTION KEVAKA QAI SEGA NI CIQOMI,IO DUA TALE NA ELECTION,ENA RAWA NI LIMA NA ELECTION NA VAKAYACORI IA ENA TAUTAUVATA NA NEIMAMI DIGIDIGI.SA KENA LEVU.

Explain the removal of ballot boxes from polling stations without being counted. And, how can you stuff large sized files (for goodness sakes) and envelopes in ballot boxes unless you have to open them up?

What's going on here? What happened to the Rules or Decrees for the Elections?

Why stop at counting all of a sudden? Is this how it was supposed to be carried out? Were the parties informed about this beforehand?

This reeks of a bunch of bad losers clutching at straws... I mean please!! based on the results to date 3 out of 4 of these politicians speaking have missed out on seats in parliament.

Mick Beddoes is so far down the Sodelpa list that he won't get one of the 13 or 14 seats that they are entitled to.

Mahendra Chaudary's FLP sitting on 2%

Lynda Tabuya's PDP party are sitting on 3.5% only bolstered by a relatively unknown candidate who was lucky enough to have #297 and picked up some of Bainimarama's #279 votes.

Seriously who are these people to feel like they have a mandate to defy a democratic election... hypocrites!!

Don't get me wrong I'm disappointed that Fiji First won the elections I voted for PDP and would have liked to have seen them form a coalition government with NFP & Sodelpa but defying the will of the people is just ugly and undignified and the people of Fiji deserve better.

Anonymous said...

Would Fiji have expected any different action from Chaudhry the ring leader?

There may very well be discrepancies that were spotted and these need investigation if there is evidence, we await.

What is surely of greatest suspicion is why did the people who spotted these irregularities at the time not shout this to the press or officials.

They waited for the following day, had a meeting then announce they will provide the evidence a day later ?????????????

Defying the will of the people? Don't be so naive like these Fiji First supporters who are willing to teach their young that it is ok to take a Country hostage, to beat up and terrorize innocent people, even to the extent of committing murder, need not be accountable to anything or anyone etc etc etc. As long as new roads are built, industries are expanded [Albeit making the rich richer], Education is half free. If the other political parties have issues with the elections then they have the right to question and find the answers they're looking for. Don't forget they also represent a huge number of Fiji Citizens. That counts for something in a True democracy.

I agree absolutely but are you trying to tell me that this is the correct process to follow? To Make an inciteful statement to the media without any evidence before raising their concerns with the electrical commission or the international observers. Poor form

Please allow me to explain the large envelopes in the ballot boxes because I was an election official; okay the ballot boxes were checked and sealed in the presence of Presiding,Election and Police Officers plus party agents.Then voting begins at 6pm voting ends and the ballot boxes are sealed again in the presence of all the above mentioned officers.At 7pm the ballot are opened for counting after they have been counted,they are verified and analysis done that is ,number of voters registered against the number of votes cast,the number of votes considered invalid.these are prepared in official forms and also sealed in A4 sized envelopes and then placed inside the ballot boxes before the ballot boxes are the sealed again.Got the picture.The sealed brown envelopes ensures that no one can tamper with the votes inside the ballot box,if any official add votes it wouldnt tally with the figures inside the ballot box,we all knew this.Just look for your party agents,they were present throughout.I know we were all shocked about the results,espcially during counting when the number 279 was chosen,even people who had the number 297 and 277 benefitted,check the stats,the votes cast for these two were meant for PM 297,ni raica ka sarava na nodra digidigi na lewe ni vanua.

08:39am What correct process has Fiji First been following the past 8 years? Can't name any? Didn't think so. Don't know what inciting [A word particular made famous by Bainimara at anyone who opposed him] you're talking about. all I heard/saw was these Political Parties questioning the election process and saying they had evidence to support. following the process they did. They collective sent a letter to the Supervisor of elections to highlight their views. Isn't that the process.

08:58am You lost me after "during counting when the number 279 was chosen" If you knew the votes cast for 297 and 277 were meant for 279 then the process is definitely not free and fair for the simple fact that you knew somehow.

Look I take your point... if there are anomalies then yes they need to be raised with the electoroal commission the MOG with the SoE- but having politicians like MC and Beddoes throwing around comments in the media like there has been "intent to defraud the Fiji people" is provocative (seeing as you are offended by the term "inciting").

Incite (root word for inciting) - to stir up or provoke to action.

Has Latin origins but I'm sure it will appeal to FB's narcissistic nature that you are crediting him for making it famous :)

May God help the stubborness & stupidity of Fiji, Elections were fair, its only unfair to you because Bainimarama won, 60% or so of the country supports him & its so evident everywhere you look & people you talk to, i didn't vote because i knew he would win anyway. SODELPA is racist, not all of Fiji is made up of iTaukei & not all itaukei support SODELPA because they have common sense which obviously you are in desperate need of, if you played for support for the 40% or so of the people what do you expect as the result, its simple mathamatics, 40% of 100 is 40 isn't it? time to put our differences aside & move towards a prosperous Fiji which we are already on the road to, better something thats working well rather than something that we are unsure of, i'd rather not take any chances

This election was never free and fair from the beginning. The electoral rolls should have been released in the beginning. Now we know why they weren't. Also not releasing the names of polling centres together with the ballot stats creates even more suspicion. Why did they stop releasing the names of polling centres after the release of the first batch of poll results? People are so gullible to think that FF could actually garner that much support. The elections were clearly rigged.
I would accept defeat -if the elections were free and fair- but they weren't.
People who think FF have the people at heart...are clearly misled.If only you could remember the number of lives that have ended or been ruined by these 2 thugs for their own ends. They would stop at nothing to get what they want and if they have to hoodwink a whole lot of gullible people to get there-they would do it. Many of these people are suffering from Stockholm Syndrome....after 8yrs of captivity. Plus the few scraps (free water, free electricity, free FF bag, free.....) they tossed in their direction and they were sold!...lets see if they come through on those deals to the people or whether it was just a whole lot of bull!

The election was fixed.

Can I prove it? No. Is there evidence that it was? Yes, though it isn't conclusive. So, how do I know the election was fixed? I know by the simple fact that Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum was placed in charge of it.

It will be interesting to see how well oppositionists, foreign observers and journalists, and honest citizens are able to ferret out how the election was fixed. But about whether the election was fixed, I have no doubt.

Does that mean Bainimarama really didn't have enough votes to win the election? No, it doesn't. Maybe he did, or maybe he didn't. It just means he cheated.

How do I know that? Simple, because Bainimarama always cheats.

TRUTH PREVAILS said...

This is for EVERYONE OUT THERE!!!

Those of you who said that this is GOD's will as people have prayed and fast for this election. This is what will happen in the next 4 years.

When the final results are out today and if FijiFirst claims victory.


I guess we SHOULD STILL QUESTION INSTEAD OF ACCEPTING THE FINAL RESULTS BECAUSE THE WHOLE ELECTION WAS CONDUCTED IN THE HANDS OF THE SAME PEOPLE WHO CREATED THE ELECTION. THAT'S WHY WE SHOULD KEEP DIGGING AND GET DOWN TO THE BOTTOM OF IT AS OUR PARTY LEADERS ARE CORRECTLY DOING. DON'T LEAVE ANY STONE UN-TURN.

So TO ALL PARTY leaders out there WE ARE RIGHT BEHIND YOU. PLEASE GET TO THE BOTTOM OF IT BECAUSE IT IS OUR VOTE AND OUR DAY AFTER 8 YEARS.


Alright, once our Party leaders accept the outcome which we can't predict and all Police complaints investigated and THEN MAYBE WE WILL ACCEPT THE RIDICULOUS OUTCOME BECAUSE EVERYTHING WAS DONE UNDER THE TABLE UNDER THEIR GUN PRESSURE.

Alright say if we have accepted THIS UNFAIR ELECTION RESULT CONDUCTED UNDER THE BARREL OF BAINIMARAMA'S GUN WHICH HE BENEFITED AS HIS FREEBIES PLAYED MAJOR ROLE IN THE OUTCOME THEN GUESS WHAT.


THE NEXT 4 YEARS WILL BE BAINIMARAMA's JURISDICTION WHERE HE WILL BE HANGED UPSIDE DOWN FROM HIS OWN PARLIAMENT WITH NO CLOTHE'S FOR THE WOLRD TO SEE. A GOOD START IS HIS PUNCHING OF THE TV NEWS LADY. MARK MY WORD HE BETTER COME PREPARED AS 4 YEARS IS A LONG TIME. HOPE HE DOESNT REGRET IT OR THINK IT SHOULD BE 3 YEARS INSTEAD.

IN OTHER OTHERS let say if GOD has chosen him to lead in this 4 years. You know what GOD isnt blind and will work in his own time to crucify Bainimarama's LIES.


The expectation for him to continue his lies will be exposed. NO MONEY, DEBT, HIGH COST OF LIVING AND LIST GOES ON AND ON. Guess what before before the end of his 4 years he will be lucky to be still around because he will shamed and ashamed of his lies. Mind you it will be legal. Will find out who this cry baby that was playing with the gun and hurt his own.


TO ALL FFP SUPPORTER'S OUT THERE. PLEASE accept everything he does in the next 4 years and do not complain publicly here because we can see whats coming. Don't be like those coup instigators and jump ship when the going gets tough.

TO ALL SODELPA SUPPORTERS OUT THERE. WE ALL DID WELL DESPITE THE ROUGH RIDES IN 8 YEARS. OUR TRUE INDIGENOUS AND SOME NON INDIGENOUS SPIRIT STILL EXISTS AS SEEN IN THE PROVISIONAL OUTCOME FOR SODLEPA WHERE MAJORITY ARE INDIGENOUS VOTERS. MAYBE 70-80% INDIGENOUS. Lets not rest until we hung Bainimarama unpside down from the parliament in the next 4 years.

Lets wait for the evidence please.
One factor no one has mentioned is the formula in the software processing the data being inputted. Who was the programmer? from india? who engaged them? what was the formula?
That should also be checked plus the evidence from the parties and any eye witnesses.....done in a fair and credible manner asap before Parliament sits.

Its possible that FF won fairly but we need to hear the complaints and whether it had a significant impact on outcome....

Hope all are happy with my suggestion......

What I don't get is that the new Secretary-General to Parliament was supposed to be appointed by the Electoral Offices Commission which is to be made up of the PM, AG, and the Leader of Opposition.

There was no Leader of Opposition on Tuesday so how come the appointment was made then????

Where are the political parties? Where is the media? Why are they not questioning AG for making this appointment before a Constitutional Offices Commission even sits???

Either the media and the political parties did not catch on to this clear constitutional breach or the media is still practicing self-censorship.

Karavaki even reconciled the ballot papers total ... he didn't burn anything

they didn't support the 1987 coup ... just ask their member rabuka ... he had no church / vanua backing

they didn't support the speight coup ... just ask mere simisoni, she didn't supply unlimited long loaf there

they are not racist ... just ask ted young, he loves all the races of Fiji

they don't support racism, that's why they reject the word iTaukei and really want to OWN the word Fijian

They are real Christians, just ask all those who want a Christian state

they love sharing, the waterways of Fiji are their property, just give us the goligoli bill and then we will share it

Ro kepa is sooo qualified to lead Fiji ... she was just waiting for Rabuka to put his hand up so she could then make her move

Oh and Qarase ... what a great guy, stole the land @ momi and pretends that he didn't OH AND then gave himself preference shares at Fijian holdings OH AND brought the genius Ballu Khan to do the IT for NLTB

Those who claim SDL rigged the last election, please read the following and then explain to me why we should believe your foreign observers now if, in your view, they got it so wrong in 2006?

Observers give positive assessment of Fiji poll
Updated at 9:17 am on 15 May 2006

Observers of the Fiji election have given a largely positive assessment of the polling process despite a range of logistical and organisational problems.
The Commonwealth observers say the shortcomings seen in last week's polling process don't amount to a systematic effort to fix the election.

And the Forum's secretary general, Greg Urwin, also says there were irregularities but they were not such that they could undermine the validity of the poll. "It's really a question as to whether those irregularaties which need to be dealt with themselves amount to the kind of situation in which you might want to call into question the validity of the election itself. It was the view of our observers that those irregularities did not amount to such a situation."

One more thing - every indigenous Fijian has a relative or loved one who is mixed race/kailoma & in future all over the world there will be no pure races, it is inevitable so stop trying to claim the term "Fijian" or it will be lost in the near future

I came across this posting by "High Tea". I don't know whether to laugh or cry. It now resonates so strongly:

The credibility of this election is on the line? You've got to be kidding me! What credibility? This election has no credibility. It has never had any credibility. Dakuwaqa and numerous other observers pointed this out years sgo.

That's fundamentally because this regime has no credibility. It had lost all credibility by January 2009. Any expression of credibility in this regime can be chalked up to deception -- either the self-deception of the gullible or the realpolitik pretense of politicians.

In the case of our friends in Canberra and Wellington, it is most assuredly the latter. In the absence of an organised and effective opposition movement in Fiji, they've now packed in their previous policies of principled -- and, at times, petty -- confrontasi, a policy that saw them squaring off not only against the illegal regime in Suva but against their own allies in Washington and other capitals. They've resigned themselves instead to tacitly and cynically conspiring with the thugs in Suva in sponsoring an election they fully know to be a charade.

Fiji first has got the right people in its team- no crooks like LQ, no Bludgers like Kepas.
And see Sodelpa line up- what a shame- mere samisoni, another crook who never paid back FDA for her bread business-thanks to Qarase when he was MD of FDB.
Cry cry ...Sodelpa

Kua ni Rere,stop being sourgrapes,accept the decision of the people of this nation.You guys are also in PArliament,you will make up the opposition though but still an I have stated before the election,'you will make good opposition in Parliament' this in turn will make up good Governance.If Sodelpa had won,I will accept it without malice or ill will.but congatulations you guys Sodelpa has also won seats look at the big picture, lets stop looking at our selfs,stop looking at 'the Man in the Mirror' if you want to make this world a brighter place,take a look at yourself and make a Change' remember those words,yeah,Michael Jackson's song.Lets put our differences aside and work together,move forward for the sake of our children,grand-children and decsendents.They are the future of this nation,we have to leave something behind for them,a safe and secure Fiji for all,not one or two but ALL RACES.Those debts can be paid if we make sacrifices,I am willing to have Govt deduct $10 bucks every pay day from my salary to help pay off the debt,how many workers are There in Fiji? multiply by $10 bucks plus buy Made in Fiji and utilise all idle lands,make them produce money,to generate revenue for the nation.Fiji Water needs to pay now,Mahend Chaudary made a big mistake when he allowed them to take Fiji Water for free,we are only receiving revenue from the tax they pay and the fees for the freight when its at the wharf.If a better deal had been made e.g. they pay the nation 20 cents for every liter exported,this will allow 10 cents for Govt expenditure and 10 cents for development,wow it would have made a huge impact in the nation.Water is now an epensive commodity world wide and Fiji has one of the best there is.Good Luck!Se lai grog mada!

@Hot Bread Kitchen

Did you ever find out how many loaves Bainimarama ate before he decided to change his mind and execute another coup. Not that he had enough but because he need to feed his family in few years since the Police Commissioner was behind his tail. Whatever happen during the 8 years including the freebies were not part of the initial coup but based on advice and ill forces to buy votes, right. Even right on a day or two behind the election more rubbish bins were handed outs. What a Gutless PIG.


Anyway bake aside, this is NOT 2000 but 2014 right? Wakey...wakey... Sleepy Head...

Vote Buying never witnessed before. No wonder they didn't give out power to a neutral government.

Have we ever had an election without allegations of cheating? This time all 5 parties have made the accusations but the multinational observers have apparently said it was all done in accordance with the rules.

Khaiyum is without doubt the most despised man in the country but is it beyond belief that all the media exposure provided by the Fiji Sun and radio regime under the control of his brother did not give 12K out of hundreds of thousands the idea that he’s Mr Magic?

What we need is some transparency. Let’s see where all the votes that were supposed to be made in favour of a regime and constitution built on foundations of treason were actually cast. But we can’t rule out the depressing thought that 7 years of dictatorship, with controlled media and exercising the power of government with a constitution that forgives in advance any lawbreaking they might undertake, has done the trick for them.

Let’s not forget when Parliament first meets HIS GET OUT OF JAIL CARD FREE EXPIRES. From then on he’ll have to be careful and he’ll no longer be able to get what he wants simply by ordering people to break the law.

I have to say I had great reservations when I heard that the man given the task of monitoring Fiji's elections, was the same man responsible for using dogs to remove men from a work-site, along with the use of Military Aircraft in the monitoring of that action. Both illegal acts at best, criminal for a Minister of The Crown, at worst!!
I witnessed the Military Aircraft take off and hover over Sydney Airport for some 4 hours from just after midnight, which was around the same time Patrick's Stevedoring employees were thrown off the wharfs in an attempt to break the back of the Maritime Union.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Reith
And it seems that my reservations were well founded because he remains incompetent and unable to see the bloody obvious in Fiji.
http://www.socialistpartyaustralia.org/archives/1342
Peter Reith's credentials are questionable at best:-
http://www.theguardian.com/world/2000/oct/30/worlddispatch.patrickb...
Then there were the false accusations that Asylum seekers had thrown their children overboard in order to affect a rescue from the Australian Navy, something John Howard pretended had actually taken place, knowing full well his Minister was not speaking truthfully.

For further info, just to keep you correctly updated..Mr Young is going to look into the report. He is probably not too happy about them loose ballot papers found lying about in the boot. They shouldnt have been there in the first place. Regardless of the vehicle being leased to the Electoral Commission, there are rules in play.

14 Danger Signs the Elections Will Be Stolen - The Philippines Experience:

Election failure to favor Arroyo
Think tank cites 14 danger signs

By Tony Bergonia
Philippine Daily Inquirer
First Posted 00:52:00 04/16/2010


MANILA, Philippines. A multinational firm doing intelligence work for a host of embassies and some of the world's top corporations has said signs that the Philippines' first automated balloting on May 10 would fail are getting clearer as the elections draw closer.

In a paper entitled "Assessing 2010 Elections Automation in the Philippines," Pacific Strategies and Assessments (PSA) said it had found 14 danger signs that the elections were bound to run into a wall of problems, or worse, completely fail.

The paper, submitted to PSA clients that include top US officials in Manila, said that the Arroyo administration was doing very little to assure people of fair and honest elections and might even benefit from failed elections.

"The automation project has been a sideshow to the ongoing shenanigans of sitting President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo who is trying to dominate the Lower House after the 2010 elections," the PSA paper said.

"There is widespread suspicion that Arroyo will somehow capitalize on automated elections problems or failure to advance her and her family's interests and perpetuate herself in power," it said.

"While there are many theories concerning Arroyo and her political gamesmanship, her history of committing electoral fraud and unwillingness to vociferously endorse free, fair and transparent automated elections has been enough to stir up a justifiable collective mistrust."

Most important elections

PSA, which has offices in Makati, Hong Kong, Beijing, Shanghai, Bangkok and Milwaukee, regularly prepares for its clients intelligence briefs, including political situations and economic risks in the Philippines and other countries in the Pacific.

Risks and vulnerabilities

The PSA paper listed what it said were the "many risks and vulnerabilities,? of automation under three categories?technology, process and people.

Under technology, the paper said, the danger signs are:

* Plans to secure and house PCOS (precinct count optical scan) machines and hardware components "remain undetermined."

* The entire batch of 82,000 PCOS machines and their components, servers, printers, power generators, 180,640 memory cards, 82,200 batteries "have not been fully tested."

* "No rigorous field testing" of PCOS machines has been held, except in a few areas where there had been "high ballot rejection rates."

* The source code, the so-called brain of the machines, "remains highly restricted." "No full, independent systems audit report (has been) released to date."

* The use of two memory cards for each machine is likely to invite "overproduction of memory cards" and open up "opportunities for mishandling, theft, vandalism or cheating."

* Only 70 percent of voting centers have cellular network or broadband signals needed to transmit voting results. "Contractual arrangements with telecommunications providers have not been disclosed."

Anonymous said...

* No independent party has been designated to handle private keys that would unlock PCOS machines prior to transmission of results.

Transport, warehousing

Under process, the PSA paper said, these danger signs were seen:

* The system of transporting and keeping the machines in safe warehouses is hazy. "Three small and widely unknown logistics companies" were given contracts.

* Ballot printing has been "drastically delayed."

* "Critical contracts, instructions, plans and procedures have not been made public."

Under people, the paper continued, these danger signs are too obvious to ignore:

* There has been no sufficient training for 230,000 teachers who would be tapped for election duty.

* A shortage of manpower hounds the process. Smartmatic, the firm that won the automation contract, needs 48,000 field technology specialists.

* "Comelec has failed to make major progress to cleanse the voters' list."

* Voters have not been sufficiently informed of new clustered precinct assignments.

Mechanism for protests

The paper added that there had been no effort to clarify how electoral protests, common after elections, would be handled under the automated system.

"In Philippine reality," losing candidates do not easily accept defeat so one can reasonably expect a large number of electoral protests," it said. "These conditions open up opportunities for civil unrest and political instability."

"Because Arroyo has already been implicated in election fraud, most believe Arroyo would be willing to exploit any perceived malfunction in the automated election to her advantage," the paper said.

"The myriad questions" and President Arroyo's failure to intercede and address the many election questions and concerns ... suggest to many that Arroyo wants imperfect, if not failed, elections to ensure her allies are perpetuated in power," it said.

"Recent public opinion polls suggest a majority of Filipinos believe another People Power revolt could follow any major elections failure despite widely acknowledged People Power fatigue among the general public," it said.

Interesting that PDP got 3.5 percent of vote and FLP got 2 percent. If the two had not split then FLP would have gotten more than 5 percent and gotten into Parliament.

Time for Chaudhry to go and for PDP and FLP to reunite.

The workers are worse off with neither the FLP or PDP in Parliament. And FFP looks like it will continue trampling on worker's rights with the high numbers they will have in Parliament.

Not even Attar Singh is likely to make it into Parliament.

Bula MM @ 8.38pm

Well, you can't feign surprise since we all knew that the last 8 years. So where to now?

I was watching the coverage of the Scottish referendum earlier on. That was democracy in action with a decisive result without the cloud of suspicion and allegation that we have in Fiji hovering over the incumbents.

Wouldn't victory be far more sweeter for them if they had simply handed over the reins to an independent interim administration to take the nation to elections?

Do read Victor Lal's latest take earlier on on the Fiji elections which I thought was rather interesting given my similar experience and exchange with my mother over the wknd. I had already posted my postal ballot paper by then and was trying to explain to her over the phone on the importance of voting out an unaccountable, non-transparent regime that beats people up at will and that had stubbornly refused to make changes it had wanted within the framework of the Rule of Law (as we had then) But alas! she was not going to budge and said it was her right to choose as she wished (and which i totally respect) but it was a pity that she couldn't adequately explain to her own daughter why exactly she was voting for the Bainimarama regime. I just wanted to know the real reason and not that he did this and that and that etc which i wasn't buying, not from those who should know better.

Anyway, so it looks like we have to suffer another 4 years. The road "back to democracy" does not start with an election and I'm afraid Fiji has a long way still to Jericho with respect to democracy and the rule of law.

Read a Scottish tweet this evening that said "Democracy is a privilege", that is so true and Fiji still has some way to go to earn it. Go figure.

Anonymous said...

Game is not over. Battle maybe lost this time but the war will go on. Its not like the other parties got zero votes. The support is still there so FFP should not discount what Bainimarama has termed losers, ironically many of whom pay taxes that he has unaccountably used for the past 8 years. Game has changed for him and now he will be made accountable and all his dealings exposed to scrutiny. Not everything will go according to his liking compared to when he forced his agenda on the people. Now comes the fun part seeing his temperament for being short fused. It will be a fun ride the next 4 years and will be good to gauge the support he has now with what he has left after 4 years or even earlier.

Anonymous said...

A democratically elected government is all about accountability,transparency, freedom of speech, democracy etc etc. Bainimarama is not used to all this and it will be very interesting to see if he can cope in the next four years. NOW!! The Opposition will have to look back at any corrupt dealings and corruptions in the last 8 years and bring him to the court of law. If Speight was jailed for treason, Qarase jailed for corruption, Chaudry awaiting his sentence and many other Senior Army Officers ans Government Officials were jailed, then Bainimarama should be trialed and jailed as well.

Anonymous said...

Prime Ministers have been jailed before so Bainimarama should not think that he is immune to being jailed.

The close and distant relatives of the murdered citizens and fair-minded people of this nation need to get satisfactory answers to several questions and Bainimarama cannot just sit there and think that he can evade all the charges and allegations against him.

IT IS NOW CLEAR THAT FIJI FIRST BAINIMARAMA HAVE WON THE GENERAL ELECTION WITH THE INDIAN/OTHER RACES VOTED 80% AND INDIGENOUS FIJIAN VOTED 30% WHICH BROUGHT THE TOTAL OF 110% . THE SODELPA AND OTHER POLITICAL PARTIES LOST THE GENERAL ELECTION WITH THE INDEGENOUS FIJIAN VOTED 70% AND 20% INDIAN /OTHER RACES = TOTAL 90%.

IT IS NOW ALSO CLEAR AS CRYSTAL WHY THE INDIGENOUS FIJIAN WILL NEVER LAID DOWN THEIR ARMS OVER THE PROTECTION AND RIGHTFUL OWNERSHIP OF THEIR LAND, QOLIQOLI AND RESOURCES TO ANYONE ELSE REGARDLESS OF THE GENERAL ELECTION RESULTS TO FORM A NEW GOVERNMENT OR WHATEVER. MAJORITY OF THE FIJIAN RACE OF 70% IS PROTECTING THEIR LAND, QOLIQOLI AND RESOURCES AND THEY WOULD NOT LAID DOWN THEIR ARMS FOR THE COST OF OTHER RACES MAJORITY IN THE GENERAL ELECTION. THE NUMBERS DO NOT RECOGNIZE THE LANDOWNERS RIGHTFUL OWNERSHIP OF THEIR LANDS, QOLIQOLI AND RESOURCES NOR THEIR CHRISTIAN GOD AND FAITH AND IT MEANS NOTHING AS A WHOLE.

IF INDIAN AND OTHER RACES LAID DOWN THEIR ARMS IN FIJI THEY WOULD HAVE LOST ALL THEIR BUSINESSES, HOMES AND PROPERTIES AND WILL LEAVE FOR GREENER PASTURES FOR A BETTER LIVING AND MAKE MORE MONEY.

BUT, IF THE INDIGENOUS FIJIAN RACE LAID DOWN THEIR ARMS IN FIJI THERE WILL BE NO MORE FIJIAN RACE IN THIS WORLD.

DEMOCRACY IS ONLY MEANT FOR THE PROTECTION OF NON INDIGENOUS PEOPLE FOR EQUAL STATUS AND LIVING IN FIJI OR ANY OTHER COUNTRY TO MAKE MONEY WITH THE RESOURCES OWNED BY THE INDIGENOUS PEOPLE THAT IS AVAILABLE THEREIN FOR ITS DEVELOPMENT AND LATER FINDS ITS WAY UP THROUGH CORRUPTION TO CONTROL THE GOVERNMENTS, BANKERS, AND ECONOMY AND MAKING LAWS TO ONLY SUITABLE FOR THEIR OWN PROTECTION.

DEMOCRACY IS THE RICHMEN’S WEAPON AGAINST ANY LAND AND RESOURCES OWNERS OR ANYONE IN LEADERSHIP WITHIN THE SOCIETY AND TO CORRUPT THE GOVERNMENT BY CONTROLLING THE BANKS.

DEMOCRACY REMOVES THE OVERLORD CONTROL OF THE INDIGENOUS PEOPLE’S RIGHTS AND PROTECTION OVER THEIR LANDS AND RESOURCES WHICH ALLOWED THE GOVERNMENT TO MASTER ALL ISSUES AND CONTROL.

EVER SINCE FROM QUEEN VICTORIA TO RATU SUKUNA, RATU MARA, RABUKA, QARASE AND BAINIMARAMA, THE INDIGENOUS FIJIAN RACE WERE FOOLED, CHEATED AND WERE DENIED OF OUR FULL RIGHTS OF OWNERSHIP NOR GIVEN A FAIR FINANCIAL FREEDOM AND ASSISTANCE FOR THE DEVELOPING OF OUR OWN LANDS AND RESOURCES DIRECTLY BY THE GOVERNMENT AND THE BANKERS.

30% OF THE INDIGENOUS FIJIAN RACE SOLD OUT THE WHOLE INDIGENOUS FIJIAN RACE AND ALL THEY HAVE FOR FREE EDUCATION, BUS FARE, ROADS, BRIDGES, SCHOOL BUILDINGS, BRUSH CUTTERS, WATER, ELECTRICITY ETC. TO BAINIMARAMA GOVERNMENT.

THE 80% INDIAN AND OTHER RACES WHO VOTED FOR FIJI FIRST PARTY HAVE WON THE GENERAL ELECTION AND NOT BAINIMARAMA. FROM TOMORROW THEY WILL CONTROL THE PRIME MINISTER BAINIMARAMA TO RELEASE MORE LANDS, QOLIQOLI AND RESOURCES TO THEM OR ELSE HE GET THE KICK BACK TO KINGDOM COME. THE 30% INDIGENOUS FIJIAN VOTERS TO FFP BECOMES THEIR PUPPETS AND SLAVE.

THE 70% OF THE INDIGENOUS FIJIAN TOGETHER WITH THE 20% OF THE INDIAN RACE WHO VOTED FOR SODELPA, NFP, FLP, PDP AND OFP WILL MAKE THEIR LAST STAND TO PROTECT WHAT IS RIGHTFULLY THEIRS IN FIJI AND THE FIJIAN RACE FOR THE SAKE OF THEIR FUTURE GENERATION. A FREE AND FAIR PLAYERS OF FIJI.

CONGRATULATION BAINIMARAMA FOR YOUR NEW GOVERNMENT AND MAY THE TRUTH BE REVEALED WHO YOU REALLY ARE IN YOUR FIRST 4 YEARS TERM AS OUR PRIME MINISTER. ONLY AFTER YOUR ARE FREED FROM THE FRAUDS ON YOUR TABLE RIGHT NOW THAT IS PREPARED BY ALL POLITICAL PARTIES WHO NEEDS A FREE AND FAIR RESULTS.

GOD BLESS FIJI
