Bloggers, good news. We must keep up the pressure for Sir Paul Reeves not to cave in to the false demands of the illegal junta. The perceptions of the many must be coming through to him to maintain the Commonwealth still insists on elections in March 2009.
Keep blogging ragone!

Update: 5:52PM The Commonwealth will stick to the March 2009 date for an election.
Special representative to Fiji Sir Paul Reeves at a press conference at the Holiday Inn yesterday.
Sir Paul said the Commonwealth would need to hear and be convinced of good arguments to come off that understanding.
The interim Government made a commitment at the Pacific Island Forum in Tonga that it would take the country to election in March 2009.
Of course it is a matter to be discussed. For my part Im committed to that date of March. Im also committed to finding some serious intent and purpose amongst the leaders of Fiji to deal with the electoral issues and if that effect begins to be displayed Im sure the international community will take that very seriously, said Sir Paul.
