Khaiyum needs a new dictionary

The Human Rights Review in Geneva has come up with the idea to appoint a commission that would review the Constitution to ensure it is “reflective of the will of the Fijian people”. Khaiyum’s answer is: “The Fijian Constitution is quite clear madam Speaker, the Fijian Constitution says that the way to review the Constitution is by way of a referendum”. No that is the way the constitution can be changed? He promised us an assembly that would look at his draft constitution but he never delivered. A review means no more than discussion, talking, and the consultation that promised but never delivered. The question of change can be looked at later.

    Then give us the referendum then.

    In fact this could be one step towards making the constitution a better one than what it is now or the review team could ascertain whether the 1997 constitution is legal and still valid. Either way, the review as required by the UN would inform the public of the review team’s findings. The public will then decide through a referendum.

    The UN Human Rights Commission will be able to spell out clearly to Khaiyum the real meaning of a “referendum” against what is meant by a “review”.
    He will no longer be able to hide and pull anything out of Shameem’s skirt to fool anybody.
