No election can ever legitimise Bainimarama

January 24, 2014

He’s standing down as commander in chief but does it mean free and fair elections?

Frank Bainimarama has announced he will relinquish the all- powerful-role military role next month but has made no details available yet about his new political party or who his running mates are.

As has been his practice, he has drip fed the miserly information to citizens when and how it suits him and his agenda to keep a right rein on the country, this time via the ballot box.

Anyone who thinks the grand gesture to give up his stripes should be applauded are kidding themselves.

Bainimarama and the military officers who intend to run in the September elections do not have the mandate of the people and no sham of an election will change the fact they committed a coup and have held the country to ransom since 2006.
