Yadra Bloggers. This is taken from the FBCL website this morning. Whilst we understand the SDL is concerned about the longevity of the illegal regime, but to complain that it should bring about General Elections soon or it was unfortunate the High Court did not give any timeline for holding General Elections, seems like mixed signals! On one hand it is appealing the High Court decision and saying the Judiciary is compromised, yet on the other hand it laments the longevity of the illegal regime and the High Court’s decision! We at SV maintain the reason for the longevity of the illegal regime is because it is an illegal regime and Fijians by remaining docile continue to give them a free hand! The High Court never gave a time-line because they too are illegal and they knew full well the bastard Vore would not have accepted any constraints placed on him and he would have turned on them instead! The Yellow Ribbon Project, which will see convicted prisoners working back in Government, needs to be carefully scrutinized. You will recall in the flawed Gate’s judgement on page 16, he refers to the reasons 5 & 6 the bastard Vore gave as the reason for his ‘Clean Up Campaign’ under the heading the ‘Politicisation of the Prison Authorities’ well what do you call the treatment given to the bastard Vore’s brother-in-law Kean and now Peniasi Kunatuba? The reason we say it needs to properly scrutinize is because we believe their motives are not genuine, but only to win over the hearts and minds of Fijians. Kunatuba as it is only natural will now become a willing pawn for the illegal junta because he feels indebted to them and now is a pawn in their hands. Deve Toganivalu on the other hand is now the new CEO of FDB. Whether he would have been appointed to this position naturally if Tukana Bovoro was still CEO job is highly questionable and this was a topic discussed in one of our posts. We believe Deve will now feel also indebted towards the illegal junta as well and through his co-operation and others like him continues to give legitimacy to the illegal junta. The illegal junta knows that as long as they control the purse strings, the masses will continue to keep the machinery of government turning, despite the fact they hate the illegal junta. This is inevitable for small island nations like ours, where government is the largest employer. Bloggers, we need stand up to the plate and bat for our side and very soon we will have our very own website for only team members! Blog on ragone!
Qarase says the interim regime should only be temporary and should not be in power for more than two years. Taken from / By: Google
SDL Party leader Laisenia Qarase says they are aware that the people of Fiji are concerned, especially in the current economic hardships on excuses given by the Interim regime to delay a return to democracy.
Qarase says the interim regime should be only temporary and should not be in power for more than two years.
“We are concerned and I think that the people of Fiji are also concerned. Unfortunately, the High Court judgment did not specify on a time line for an early election but from experience around the world the interim regime are suppose to be interim and very temporary. We are getting in two years now and two years is rather a long time for a small country like Fiji. Certainly, there won’t be no excuse not to have an election by early next year 2009.”
Qarase also says the political forum should be unconditional and open.
“That will be the way to go. You need to create an environment from the beginning that would be conducive to fair exchange of views on important issues, particuralary on that sort of level with seriousness of issues likely to be discussed. It is better to come in without any condition.”
