Top of the morning to you bloggers. This is taken from yesterday’s FBCL’s page. Interesting how Electoral Commission Chairman now cites school and sugar cane harvests as some of the reasons why elections may not be practical to be held in March 2009. First, a member of the NCBBF cited Vore being ‘pressured’ into giving March 2009 as the poll date and now this Chairman is citing school and sugar cane harvest as other reasons why Fiji may not proceed to the pool in March next year!
Having said that, why isn’t the Chairman providing alternative dates such as the 1st term school holiday, which by then the sugar cane harvest should be finished if he’s really genuine about going to the polls next year? In providing for reasons against the elections going ahead without giving alternative dates, gives the impression the illegal junta does not want to go to the polls as previously undertaken. This has been the perception of the majority all along.
Fortunately, the EU and Pacific Island Ministers aren’t buying into this crap because after their meeting with the NCBBF yesterday, the Tongan Foreign Minister said he was happy and there was still time for Fiji to meet its election time-table….IN YOUR FACE VORE & YABAKI!!!!

The chairman of the Electoral office Commission says March 2009 is not the best time to hold general elections.
“We need to reduce the number of days for the election-no one has even considered that March is not a school holiday-and to have a voting on March while the sugarcane harvest is still going will create a lot of problem.”
