Bloggers, do you recall our post ‘Poll Chief yet to take office’ on 07/07/08? You will also recall, spineless Rishi Ram’s excuse was receiving an email on Monday morning the day Ms. Heffernan was supposed to start, claiming bad weather conditions prevented her from moving her personal belongings and coming to Fiji. SV had questioned her compatibility to carry out the duties of Supervisor of Elections given her academic background was in environment law and wildlife protection, which is totally foreign to Electoral Law.
One would have thought given the high priority the Pacific Islands Forum, Commonwealth Secretariat and International Body were placing on Vore’s and Eveli’s assurances and undertaking of General Elections in March 2009, the commencement date of the successful candidate would be crucial and imperative given their stuff up with their previous candidate, but, it seems Rishi Ram, Ayarse, Pryde and others have mucked up on this issue again!
This post is taken from FBCL’s news yesterday confirming Ms. Heffernan still has not arrived in-country to take up her post. It can only mean she’s either gotten ‘cold feet’ (nothing to do with the cold weather) and changed her mind with the illegal junta hiding it from the people of Fiji or she’s so grossly incompetent, that she cannot even prioritise her commitments properly (eg: moving of personal belongings) or just doesn’t give a rat’s arse about her delay snd its consequences?
SV now questions her efficiency and effectiveness, if she still decides to take up office. Also bloggers, should disciplinary action be taken against those responsible for her appointment if she fails to deliver on the goods or resigns, especially with the new Code of Conduct for civil servants? What do you think?

Newly-appointed Supervisor of Elections Felicity Heffernan is yet to start work.
Officials from the Elections Office have told Radio Fiji News Heffernan was expected to start work this week Monday.
They say when they last heard from her, her departure from New Zealand had been delayed because it has been snowing heavily in New Zealand.
