Faces of the future
Pro-regime bloggers criticised Ro Teimumu for saying that SODELPA would look into issues if elected while Bainimarama promised immediate action. This sums up the choice we face. Ro Teimumu has undertaken to consult before policies are developed and implemented.
Bainimarama could not even meet a commitment to consult on the Constitution. Secure in power for 5 years he will make decisions quickly but who knows what they will be? Sale of FSC to a Chinese company, which would no doubt expect all the idle cane to be given to it on sweetheart terms under the Land Use Decree.
It doesn’t matter whether you choose SODELPA, NFP, FLP, PDP, One Fiji, even an independent with a reasonable prospect of success -Roshika Deo would be the best breath of fresh our Parliament has ever had – but we should not choose to throw away your power to choose.
All we can do now is hope and pray
