Constitution will guide who stands in 2014 elections
Monday, July 04, 2011
Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama says the new constitution will provide guidelines as to who stands in the 2014 general elections.
FBC News sought clarification from Bainimarama about eligibility as he has previously indicated that dirty politicians and those linked to past political instability will not be allowed to contest.
Attorney General, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum recently told New Zealand’s TV 3 that there will be no restrictions on who will be able to stand.
Bainimarama told FBC News the constitution will be the supreme guide.
“That also depends on the constitution- when we’ll set up the constitution then we’ll set up the guidelines.”
The government is adamant that the general elections will be held no later than September 2014.

The illegal and treasonous Constitution swindle
As we predicted, the grand plan to push through a new constitution, is well and truly underway.
And as we have mentioned elsewhere, we can thank just as illegal and treasonous NGO's like the Citizen's Constitutional Forum (CCF) for kowtowing to a military regime and throwing innocent and unarmed civilians under a bus, to risk our livelihoods and support a unmandated Charter that will give life to a constitution that, We The People, neither want or need.
The so-called "voice of civil society" CCF has done the people of Fiji a great disservice and questions must be asked: On who's behalf does CCF speak? Who asked them to represent us on the Charter facade? Who mandated them to speak on behalf of the majority?
More importantly how is it possible that EU, Australian and UK taxpayers funds are being funnelled into an organisation that purports to "strengthen Fiji's democracry" when we know that the CCF is already having pocket chit-chats with other so-called "voices of civil society" to promote a constitutional option where Fiji has Presidential Elections - another shoddy c&p job that our so-called "democratic" leaders in Indonesia are promoting even if the reality speaks to something else.
This is why the illegal and treasonous Bainimarama is flagging that his new and unconstitutional constitution will provide guidelines as to who can and cannot lead us. And we all know that once again Bainimarama will railroad everything in his favour.
No matter what they say, the constitution lives through you: cite it, claim it, spread the word.
