Well, Well, Decrees No Less. How about a decree absolute to rid the ig from our Nation

Parts of ’97 Constitution to be revived: ILLEGAL PM

Parts of Fiji’s abrogated 1997 Constitution dealing with the rule of law, the judiciary, human rights and democratic principles will be resurrected by decree, Illegal Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama has told officials of the European Commission.

At a meeting in Brussels with the EC’s Director General for Development, Stefano Manservisi and his advisors, Bainimarama assured them of government’s commitment to upholding the rule of law, the strengthening of the judiciary, respect for human rights and respect for democratic principles, a government statement said.

He said this commitment was evident in the decreeing of new legislations “and the resurrection by decree of those essential elements of the abrogated constitution dealing with such matters”.

Bainimarama was accompanied by Foreign Affairs Minister, Ratu Inoke Kubuabola, his permanent secretary Solo Mara and Fiji’s ambassador to the EU, Peceli Vocea.

The meeting was to exchange views on major issues that will form the basis for resuming formal consultations under the provision of Article 96 of the Cotonou Agreement, the statement said.

“Government believes that this informal meeting can now be taken to another level leading to the resumption of formal “consultations”, an objective of which is to review the agreement signed in October 2007 between the European Union and Fiji on the political situation in Fiji,” it said.
 
Bainimarama briefed the EC officials on the programs of institutional, judicial, constitutional and electoral reforms that are in place to begin in 2010 and in subsequent years and the reasons for these reforms.

The two sides also discussed issues pertaining to the Strategic Framework for Change, the National Dialogue Forum and the Public Emergency Regulation, enforced soon after the 1997 Constitution was abrogated in April.
 
Senior EC and Fiji government officials will now follow-up on the major outcomes of the discussion with the aim of ultimately resuming formal consultations between the two sides, said the government statement.

    The illegal PM cannot seem to make up his mind. The underlying theme is say what you have to say to get what you want and ignore it or contradict it later when you want something else. I cannot see that he has any credibility with the international community. I think the word is that Frank must show definite progress towards an election (under the old system) before anyone will believe him, not just words, but action.
    It is also risky to take VB’s or his media reports seriously about these meeting he keeps going off to with international agencies. The reports from the agencies themselves usually paint a completely different picture. For example, after the IMF visited last week VB was saying they are going to support his “reforms”. Later it turns out that they have their own idea of reforms (economic) which have little or nothing to do with VB’s Samyesque “reforms”. The official IMF report is not due until January. It should be interesting to hear if the EU has any statement after this latest junket in Europe.

    With you there Nostradamus…and have this many times before…the idiot Voreqe going off to talk to/with world thus making him think he is acceptable in theri midst but the sad thing is….THIS PERCEPTION OF HIS IS HIS REALITY…and that is just soooooo saaaaaaaaaad.

    He can talk until the cows come home with these leaders but NO ON WILL SAY BOO UNTIL ELECTIONS IS HERE AND DONE!

    However, I believe what we should also be bringing up now is ‘THE OFFICIAL CAPACITY THE MILITARY IS WANTING TO PUSH TO OVERSEE THE WORKINGS OF OUR FUTURE ELECTED GOVTS. Hullo!!!! there is no other kind of threat that we have to be afraid of like in Turkey, with the idea of AN ISLAMIC COUP looming rather than the MILITARY COUPING OUR ELECTED DEMOCRATIC GOVTS.

    TIME TO WALK PEOPLE!!!! REALLY! REALLY!

    Agree with you two.

    NZ Journalists Vo invited for one such interviews who later toured Fiji on their own volition (Radio to be precise) summed up pretty well when asked by the Host of the show back in NZ — The guns that is behind the coup perpetrators is all that is holding them up.

    I just laughed out loud. The Vo skirted around specifics and did not give straight answers to all the questions.

    Come on you idiots.
    We all know that the bulk of last constitution would be incorporated into the new constitution – the bill of rights and all. So when Bainimarama says he will resurrect that part of the constitution by decree – he is not going back on the rest of his reforms – a electoral system that is not race based and all that.

    Some other idiot brought up the IMF – the big deal is that the IMF and the World Bank are willing to work with Fiji – be it through economic reforms, those other reforms proposed by the charter, the IMF and World Bank couldn’t care less – and I am sure the Charter reforms are not proposing some gross violations of human rights.

    After the ANZ crowd were kicked out, now it looks like the international community is just about on board with the 2014 election and the reform.

    BTW – I don’t think anyone in the International Community has any problems with the reforms proposed by John Samy and company – I think the problem has more to do with the manner in which these changes are being brought about….and that is what Frank seems to be working on.

    Nostra wrote, “The reports from the agencies themselves usually paint a completely different picture.”
    So what exactly the did the reports from the IMF and World Bank say about the last visit?

    Budhau, you stupid old non functional little prick, Nostra had clearly stated above; “that the IMF official report is not due till sometime in January 2010”. What part of that statements don’t you understand? Listen up old farts, locking your self up in your old house is not healthy for an old prick like you, so an advise if i may, get yourself a New England(Patriot) game ticket tomorrow and go on and enjoy yourself in that football game. Don’t worry about politics in Fiji, Fijians have been lookin after their political,economic and social strategies for over 4000 years.

    They know what they’re doing and how to get there? it is no mistery to them when all of these will be concluded? Isn’t thats incredible, they have that faith.
    It is us, the Vulagi, that got all riled up for nothing,Fijians are one heck of a people, they just know that this calamity will be concluded satisfactory. It is in their blood and in their culture.

  6. Budhau Says:

    Boy….Hari – you using thi kind of language – “you stupid old non functional little prick” – BTW- that “old” remark – how did you figure that out – that just because I know my history – that I was there.

    I also read it in the papers that the IMF report will not be out till January – There is nothing not to understand in that.

    My point was that the IMF folks had a meeting in Istanbul and that was followed by this visit to Fiji – that looks positive for Fiji – that these organizations were not taking their cue from ANZ.

    Historically, if you look at the IMF and World Bank, you would see that they have worked with countries that have had a much worse human rights record than Fiji. So when Nostra brought up the issue of IMF, I thought it was fair to have that discussion.

    Hari – as for you being an Indian and all that – to that I say, my arse. And I see that you have no problem with Nostra, the white boy, discucsing your politics – how did you figure out that I was a vulangi.

    You see Hari – you are dickhead, not because I say so, because you just proved it in your above remarks and your other posts in here.

    The Fiji military regime’s seizure of broadcast licences is a “very bad signal” for international investment and freedom of speech in the Pacific nation, Foreign Minister Stephen Smith says.

    Not so fast Bud…and no, we don’t know that! lol…

    But which ever way you guys now wish to wear it, inside out, upside down or round & round, for all its intent & purposes, the 1997 CONSTITUTION STILL LIVES. Just ask CJ Gates, he’ll tell ya.

    Why throw it out in the first place?

    What is showing clearly here is a person who does nlot what the right hand is doing from the left hand. As soon as one barks something he likes to hear, he jumps. Well time is drawing near and the only place to jump is in s bottom less pit – fit only for pigs!
