Leader of Opposition challenges coup instigator’s lies to UN

March 16, 2015

Bainimarama: Fools UN but not those at home.

It’s long for a quick read but SODELPA party leader Ro Teimumu Kepa’s point by point critique of Frank Bainimarama’s claims in his speech to the UN about how much he’s done for Fiji is worth it just for the fact that someone is challenging the lies.

Ro Kepa’s statement:
Having read the Prime Minister’s rhetoric to such an important body as the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, and on such an important topic that has such a huge impact on our people demonstrates beyond reasonable doubt to all that a statesman he is not and the moral compass of our nation as embodied in the PM’s statements has again taken a turn for the worst.

He has made many remarks that require a response and I do so as follows:

Elections

FB: Mr. President, I stand before you as the democratically-elected Prime Minister of Fiji, having led my Fiji First Party to a decisive victory in the first genuinely democratic election in Fijian history last September.

RTK: Apart from the removal of the ethnic voting element used in previous elections, the 2014 elections held were not democratic, free, fair or transparent and the ‘decisive victory’ was based on an imposed constitution and totally controlled and manipulated election process.

There is nothing democratic about a system of voting that allows a candidate with 830 votes to enter Parliament and deny 32 others who polled more a seat in the House.

The first truly Democratic Constitution FB: That election took place on the basis of a new Constitution that for the first time, creates a secular State, establishes a common and equal citizenry, reaffirms civil and political rights and also guarantees the Fijian people an unprecedented array of social and economic rights. This includes the right to education, the right to adequate health care, adequate food and water, housing, sanitation, economic participation, a just minimum wage, social security and specific rights for people with disabilities and children.

RTK: They say that if you repeat your lies often enough, you begin to believe it, and I am certain that is what QORVIS and their propaganda machine have instilled in Frank Bainimarama and Aiyaz Khaiyum. Just keep lying and soon it becomes the truth.

That would be true if the entire population decided to give up and submit to our usurpers. But thankfully 202,650 citizens or 41% of the registered voters did not vote for Frank Bainimarama. So only 91,064 votes separates the support for the Government vs. the support that the Opposition and other unsuccessful parties represent, and this is despite what we believe to be a compromised election process and when we present our final report the people will then know what took place.

Frank Bainimarama knowingly misleads the International community by omitting to speak truthfully and factually about the origins of the 2013 Constitution.

Having trashed the People’s 2012 Draft Constitution, Aiyaz Khaiyum drafted the 2013 Constitution which was imposed on the people. The motivation for this was that the 2012 People’s draft did not grant the usurpers of our Democracy Frank Bainimarama and his co-conspirators Aiyaz Khaiyum & co, absolute immunity.
