Bainimarama cannot explain the need for urgency

Bainimarama knows that there is a lot of uncertainty about what his draft constitution means. With no consultation he pulled it out of nowhere to replace the draft that people had seen and had the chance to contribute to. The new draft wipes away all protection for native lands and customs with no explanation. The original deadline of mid April has been extended twice now to end April, but even that’s too short. The claim that the constitution needs to be finalised soon is a blatant lie. There’s more than 12 months to the elections and the draft Constitution leaves Bainimarama in power, with all his power to make laws that cannot be challenged left in place. The real reason for the urgency is his hope he can declare the Constitution before people understand what’s in it.

    What a load of crap. Why is it that whenever bai speaks it makes nauseous. Its because it is full of lies and bs propaganda.

  2. Keep The Faith Says:

    Not only is the illegal and treasonous regime struggling with their draft which is facing widespread rejection and disinterest, they’ve lost all semblence of self-respect and are not above accepting charity (to the tune of 15mill) from benevolent Papua New Guineans who undoubtedly have their own development issues.

    The regime has stolen from the people of Fiji and they have absolutely no qualms about shafting other Governments either.
