Vore tells Fiji Army told Constitution will change…de matanitu nei ta says SWM!

January 27, 2009

Well folks, here we have Vore raving like an pig that he is. He should be telling this to his counterparts in PNG and not at the QEB! Why is he not surveying the flood affected areas as he claimed for not being able to attend the Leaders Meeting in PNG! Again, SWM says his behaviour shows a coward of the 1st degree. Vore does not want elections because he will be tried for treason and condemned to death, so what then are our options ragone???


Fiji’s military leader Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama has told his troops that there will be changes to the Constitution and election held even if it takes 10 years.

“I am telling you that the Constitution will be changed,” he said while addressing a parade in the Fijian language at the Queen Elizabeth Barracks in Suva yesterday.

Footage of the parade captured by Fiji TV showed Commodore Bainimarama reassuring the soldiers of the objective to bring about positive changes to the country since the 2006 coup.

He advised them to ignore critics of the military’s clean-up campaign, including media reports.

Commodore Bainimarama reiterated that despite pressure on his Government, the country will only be returned to democratic rule once the racially divisive electoral system is changed.

Changes to Fiji’s electoral system would require constitutional amendments.
“The Electoral Act will be changed. If it takes us 5 years or 10 years to hold elections then so be it. But hear me, the Constitution will be changed,” Bainimarama said.

    It is never ending!

    No doubt he behaves like a dictator because he is one.

    It is crucial for them to change the Constitution, the only way to save them from the gallows.

    FijiGirl if you think a protest march would help in some way go ahead – I’ll be there!

    I am like Viti let him go and let us sit back and watch, criticise, expose and shame them with their antics.

    Something is bound to happen this cannot go on forever.

    For the time being Blog On Ragone!

    Wow , I’m really surprised that these are the Commander’s real intentions , not !
    Am I the only one who saw this coming ?
    If only the President would hurry up and die , then Frank can take over completely !
    Do the soldiers now understand what this has always been about all along , are they prepared to do something about it to bring it to an end ?
    And what of the people who have used Frank to get what they wanted from the start , the destruction of the Fijian cultural system , it’s GCC and the take over of the land .

    Bloodshed is inevitable .
    God bless Fiji and may he protect the innocent .

    Good questions Mark and what do you think?

    To the Indo Fijians, the taukei will only begin to take your concerns seriously when they can be persuaded that you are not marking time for an exist visa. Your future here, uncertain as it might appear, must be fought for. It is not something you need to do on your own as there are many of us taukeis and other ethnic communities who share your vision of a united country. Remember though that us taukeis own 83% of the land. We also make up 60% of the population and we want to retain our traditional culture.

    That is the Fiji you should be prepared to live in.

    What crap is the crappy commander talking about – racially divided electoral system. All I can say is the current system is a fair go and ensure proportional representation as much as possible with a fair chance given to the minority of general and Rotuman groups. Okay if he so insists on enforcing the reformed electoral system then go ahead and do it quickly since he’s got the power illegal as it is to do anything he wants. Just do it quickly and get it over and done with. All we can see is that he is dragging his feet on the issue to prolong his hold on to power because come elections he will no longer be around thats for sure. He even mentioned 5 to 10 years before elections can go ahead – what a drag. I just can’t figure this idiot out. He says that until the reforms are complete and the charter passed then will he have elections. What about the 93% support of the charter and the President endorsement. Isn’t that enough to go ahead or is he still uncomfortable with the risks of uncertainty. He can unilaterally carry out the reforms and implement the new election system. No one can do anything about it. Why bullshit about holding a president’s dialog forum since any views that are not of his liking will of course not be accepted so why bother having the forum at all. The ball is now in our court on what line of action is required of us.

    How many parades do these form four graduates do in a week?????

    This is our problem…we have citizens of form four level filling the military vacancies, and since those of us who blog here are way past that level, we know real well our level of intelligence then compared to what we have now with experience and maturity.

    So, no wonder those form four graduates will swallow hook, line and sinker all the crap about ignoring Vore’s critics cos they don’t have the mental capacity to reason, to think, to reexamine, to refocus, to QUESTION!

    it’s going to be up to us pro-democracy warriors to stand-up!!!

    Can you see how he keeps taking the next mile when given an inch!?? So it’s time for that democracy movement led by Attar Singh and us bloggers to do something CONCRETE!!!!!

    Being suspended from PIF may come so citizens have to ACT!!!!!!

    sad, sad indeed if we have to wait for another 5 10 years!

    Wel here it is folks! We have a Deadline for an Election date but we might as well forget about it.

    Bai Na Dau Dai Dai is here to stay. Fiji is officially a dictatorship and this despicable lousy liar is the country’s first Dictator. History has been made.

    Pacific Forum Gives Fiji A May 1st Deadline

    The PIF summit in Papua New Guinea’s capital Port Moresby has given Fiji’s interim government a final deadline after much deliberation and discussion on how to get its self-appointed prime minister, coup-leader Commodore Frank Bainimarama, to hold elections.

    If Fiji fails to prove elections are on their way it will be the first country to be expelled from the PIF.

    Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd said the forum had “drawn a line in the sand”.

    The PIF communiqué announced on Tuesday night was a clear message to Fiji that it “must return to the ballot box and they must return their soldiers back to their barracks”, he told reporters after the meeting on Tuesday.

    But given Commodore Bainimarama’s series of broken promises, including that he would hold elections by March this year, Mr Rudd admitted he remained “deeply sceptical” of Fiji’s reliability.

    “The interim government has shown complete contempt for its previous commitments,” he said.

    “Failing to do so (hold elections) will result in automatic suspension from the meeting of the forum.

    “… The ball now is very much in the court of the interim government of Fiji to see what they do.”

    I watched Khaiyum on TV and the man looked lost and ugly! To be honest it looked liked the other leaders just wanted to grab his head and shove it in the nearby cuppboard. Leave him in there and forget about him.

    You could tell our PM Rudd has had enough of Fiji and no doubt Fiji will be out of the PIF come the 1st of May.

    What I noticed was the “Melanesian way” with the other leaders. They looked so proud and I am so glad Rudd and Keys made the effort to be there! Thank you PM Rudd & PM Keys! The two of you being there made the PIF a body not only to be proud of but to be respected.

    Imagine if Rudd & Keys had behaved like your illegal PM, it would have been really sad for the other leaders and to add salt to the injury Fiji sent and an illegal AG who was not even indigenous.

    PIF is one big family and they must have hated handing the bula shirt over to your representative! Khayium was definitely the odd ball.

    EnufDictatorship –

    I understand your anger but if you had watched the PIF leaders on TV you would have realized these leaders were not angry, not even frustrated only very ashamed because one of their own had not respected the family they belonged to.

    “Isn’t this the real Melanesian way?”

    Rudd & Keys were the only ones angry and frustrated!

    However, after saying that I would rather deal with Rudd & Keys anytime because I could reason with them. They do not scarce me at all.

    The other leaders I wouldn’t want to push them any further because when it is “enough is enough” with them there is no holding them back.

    If you want to read what communique actually says we have it up on intelligentsiya…or go to forum wsite:

    Plus the Obama administration has weighed in on the PIF decision too:

    Both are our leader updates for this am. Of course Vore will react against it.

    This was Bai’s opportunity to make good and he just chucked it right back in the PIF’s faces!

    The PIF leaders had great concern for our nation and wanted to ensure that Bai is held accountable for his actions and promises to the Forum.

    All Bai had to do was put his case forward. He is a dictator and dictator’s do not reason or have to answer to anyone!

    Academic warns of big setback Fiji Times Online
    Wednesday, January 28, 2009

    SUSPENSION from the Pacific Islands Forum would be a setback for Fiji, says an academic.

    Professor of Economics and dean of faculty of Business and Economics, Biman Prasad said it would be a sad day if Fiji was suspended from the Forum as it was one of the founders.

    “Fiji has been a significant player among the 14-member Pacific Island states of the Forum,” he said.

    “Suspension at this time would be a big setback as there are a number of important developments on trade including the impending negotiations on PACER plus and Fiji is expected to play an important role.

    “The Forum is an important regional organisation tasked to lead negotiations on important international agreements and issues on behalf the region and the suspension of one its key members would be a setback for the organisation as well as for Fiji.”

    Suspending Fiji from the PIF shouldn’t be seen as a defeat but rather a stand for Democracy .
    Fijians can hold their heads very high indeed as they have been so patient and gracious with this silly man and his hangers on .
    The Australian and New Zealand leaders certainly are impatient , as we don’t do things the Island way , nor in Island time !
    But that is the extent of our difference I think . But it’s what we have in common which will prevail ! A desire for peace , freedom and Democracy , and that is what we all are striving for through the forum .
    Perhaps the quickest way out of this mess , is to have Frank sent to China with a one way ticket !

    There seems to be no consistency in the ig. At the Forum meeting pip squeak iarse told PIF leaders that the charter had a 63% support. Bainipuaka always claimed it had a 93% support. So what is the truth. These two can’t even agree on a same figure. We all however know the real support is even much less than either figure. Far below the break even point. The pig and his piglets just want a free ride for the next 5 to 10 years and enjoy living at the expense and misery of Fiji’s citizens. Micheal Somare should be more realistic rather than throwing a blanket support on anything and anyone Fijian. He should realise he is dealing with a dictator, liar and a coupster in Bainimarama. Ok so we are grateful Somare has a fondness for Fiji but it would augur well if he does so in the interest of the people rather than those in power. He should learn to differentiate the right and the wrong and conclude that the pig is there for himself and using him to lend sympathy when under fire.

    It is big news here because PM Kevin Rudd attended the meeting.

    He made the effort to fly into Port Moresby and out again yesterday.

    I guess it is not going to be big news in Fiji because your illegal PM had the cheek to snubb the PIF and the deportation of another Aussie publisher.

    He is a dictator afterall and I think by now the whole world realizes it.

    When Fiji is suspended from the PIF, it just carries on from there to the Commonwealth and then the UN.

    We can at least have something to look forward to come 1st of May!
