Importance of electoral process stressed
03 JUL 2008
The interim Government is committed to putting in place an electoral process that better reflects what the people want, says Fiji’s Justice Permanent Secretary Pio Tikoduadua.
Tikoduadua was speaking while opening an Elections Business Process Re-engineering workshop at the Nobel House in Suva this morning.
He emphasised to participants the importance of their jobs in ensuring the successful implementation of an electoral process where the rights of individuals are exercised.
“It is so important that we exercise our duties responsibly with care and diligence.
“This electoral process must guarantee that individuals are given the opportunity to choose their representative,” Tikoduadua said.
He added that our present electoral process is undemocratic and there a need to re-look at it seriously.
“Government is committed to this. This exercise is about looking at areas in which we can improve on so that we have an accountable, transparent and democratic electoral process,” he said.
SV says in response that the people of Fiji are not fooled by the Junta’s continuous propaganda/empty rhetoric, as they continue to trample the peoples’ BASIC rights to DECIDE and CHOOSE for themselves what electoral system they would like to have for themselves!
SV says in response that the people are not in the least bought or persuaded by the extremely sly and cunning utterances made by Tikoduadua on TV1 tonite, that these reforms are what the people want. Well, you thieving deceivers, that is why we hold ELECTIONS and let THE PEOPLE ELECT THEIR OWN REPRESENTATIVES TO VOICE, ON THEIR BEHALF, the kind of changes or reforms that they want to see happen within our electoral system; and as Keep the Faith correctly points out : In a democracy, the MAJORITY decides, not you thieving, insignificant POO’s!
Comment away bloggers, it is your right to CONDEMN what the junta is forcing down our beloved nation’s throat!
