Real Fiji reveals the LIES THE JUNTA are trying to perpetuate through their hastily revamped draft conshtitushion:
1. The military junta have told you that the authority to make laws in their new Constitution is vested in Parliament right? Wrong.
Frankie Boy 'as Prime Minister' has the supposed authority to enact laws [s.43(2)] including regulations after receiving comments on facebook [s.47] by the express and implied powers conferred upon him by the Constitution [s.91(5)(c), s.91(2), s.130(2), s.159(7) & (11)] that is automatically assented to by the President [s.45(3),s.81] which comes into force as applicable [s.46] without having to use the innovative emergency powers [s.151] that are subject to scrutiny of parliament in or out of “session”.
2. The military junta have told you that the prime minister can be removed by a motion of no confidence right? Wrong.
The self-appointed PM and President are in cahoots and run things together and forever. Frankie can unilaterally instruct Epelie to prorogue parliament [s.56(2), s.81, s.159(1) “session”] so that a motion of no confidence is not introduced [s.93(2), s.92(6)].
3. The military junta have told you that parliament can be dissolved if it has lost confidence in the government right? Wrong.
As stated, Frankie can unilaterally instruct Epelie to prorogue parliament [s.56(2), s.81] so that a motion of no confidence is not introduced; frustrating the precondition that a motion of no confidence was rejected [s.60(2)(c)].
4. The military junta have told you that parliament will determine the rules and procedures for its internal governance right? Wrong.
Frankie and Aiyazie will craft the standing orders of parliament [s.70(2)] including the notice requirement for introducing a motion of no confidence against Frank but more importantly that relating to the disbursement of public finances in the absence of 44 parliamentarians (see below).
5. The military junta have told you that parliament will consist of 45 members right? Wrong.
Frankie 'as Prime Minister' will be your parliament [note 1 above] and government [s.90(1)] and minister for everything [s.91(5)(c)] when parliament is prorogued.
Alas no more coups and state of emergency in Fiji.
