Expert has his eye on Frank and Khaiyum

International expert on transitional politics, Dr Paul Buchanan, has given Bainimarama until January to come with the rules that will govern elections next year. Any further delay will make it look like he’s not planning to play fair. Dr Buchanan of 36th Parallel Assessments thinks there are two possible reasons for the delay – one of them is that there are many who are reluctant to be part of what they consider to be part of a rubber-stamping exercise that will result in the election of Commodore Bainimarama as the first supposedly democratic civilian president. And he may well remain as chief of the armed forces, which would defeat the purpose of the exercise.
