Regime eyes chiefly positions

There is nothing that the Bainimarama regime doesn’t view as its property and that includes chiefly positions. The military man running iTaukei affairs, Apakuki Kurusiga, has declared that vacant positions have to be filled. He added “that those elected to these vacant titles needed to support whichever government was in power”. Does this mean that he thinks that Voreqe can appoint people who support him. That would be a step too far. Kurusiga even mentioned the position of Tui Nayau, which has been vacant since the passing of the late Ratu Sir Kamisese Mara. Kurusiga said the regime could not ‘interfere’ but we know that the regime’s word is worthless.
