Can Frank backdown?

Lease money distribution was hot on the agenda of Ba Provincial Council meeting in Viseisei, Vuda. It seems some people are not happy with the lease distribution system improsed by Bainimarama without any consultation. Everyone knows the system was the brain child of Khaiyum but Bainimarama has taken responsibility and fears he’ll lose face as the tough guy who calls all the shots if he’s forced to back down. People knew how the old system worked and the change was made without any consultation. Why couldn’t he just leave it as it was until he’d asked landowners what they want?

    Your land is safe in our hands. The Rear Admiral has promised that he will not take it away. And he is a man of impeccable honesty and credibility. He promised:

    1. To remove racism and introduce equal opportunity. He has delivered: Today a muslim of Indian extraction rules Fiji.
    2. To uphold the 1997 constitutions and hold elections in 2009. Well he tried to deliver but Australia interfered.
    3. To end corruption in Fiji. He delivered. Today government operations in Fiji are totally transparent and no official corruption exists. We know that some pernicious diplomats in Suva see the Honourable Khaiyum as a corrupt sleaze bag, but they are mistaken.
    3. That no RFMF soldier would benefit from the coup. Well he surely has delivered on this one. What happened is that all these Colonels, Majors and Captains took on second and third posts in government and worked 20 hours each day without a single dollar more in pay.
    4. That no member of his government would be allowed to stand in elections. He delivered on this one, without a single doubt.
    5. That speech would be free and the election hold on a level playing field. He over-delivered on this one by strictly refraining from buying votes.
