We’ve been told for some time that Bainimarama would launch his party soon and now we know what soon means. It means in two months time. His new party will be launched in May! We look forward to welcoming it, whatever its’ name is, to the ranks of democratic parties, after he has successfully signed up his 5000 members and listed all the information about his office-holders etc.
We’ll all be waiting to see who his office holders are and what assets they own up to. We’ll be especially interested to see if Khaiyum turns up as an office holder in the new party. And then there’s the question of the Party’s name – will we really have to wait two months to find out what it is? Can he go around asking people to sign up for a party without telling them its’ name?
