Bloggers, the South Pacific Forum has now thrown down the gauntlet to Vore. They have challenged him to abide by his undertaking in Tonga or face suspension. Vore’s claim that he was pressured has turned some of the leaders who were sympathetic to his cause against him because they in effect have called him a liar. He shots with his mouth when he has his goons around him, but folds, when he meets other leaders. SV urges the Military Council to take Vore out now and stop Fiji’s misery!
The Pacific Islands Forum leaders today issued an ultimatum to Fiji – either get with the elections earlier promised for March of next year, or get suspended from the Forum.
The Forum intends to hold a special meeting in Papua New Guinea in December where they will decide on whether or not Fiji has met the demands of their ultimatum and can remain within the group. Talagi said the Forum hopes not to isolate Fiji, but to re-engage with Fiji through a political dialogue yet to be put in place.
