To have an appearance of legitimacy requires, at the very least, votes on the charter-farter are done under a secret ballot, supervised by an INDEPENDENT body.
Thus, the ordinary person on the street will always look upon these so-called ‘facts’ and ‘numbers’ churned out by the interim regime on a daily basis, with great skepticism due to the interim regime’s underhandedness in the whole saga.
Of course, this is aside from the fact that it is crystal clear to the world that this face-saving exercise by the junta is rooted in TREASON i.e. the unlawful overthrow of a democratically elected government.
Fiji’s sugar city ‘backs Charter’
Lautoka residents have so far given overwhelming support for the draft People’s Charter, according to Commissioner Western Joeli Rokovada.
In a statement, Rokovada said the Charter consultation teams in the Lautoka district have successfully consulted more than 11,000 people through house to house visits.
He agrees it is the only positive way of obtaining the percentage needed to embrace the Charter.
Lautoka district alone has recorded 10,759 people agreeing with the document while 86 have agreed with some amendment to it, the Government statement said.
The architects of the draft Charter are optimistic that the document will receive majority support of Fiji’s voters when public consultations conclude in mid-December.
