The membership of the Constitutional Offices Commission, as outlined in the 2013 Constitution, will be stacked in favour of Bainimarama and Khaiyum.
This means that they will get to appoint whomever they wish into key public office positions. As experience from the last seven years has shown us Bainimarama and Khaiyum will appoint people who will do as they are told and turn a blind eye to their corrupt practices and illegal activities. Therefore, the nepotism and stupidity in appointments under the bainimarama dictatorship will continue at Fiji's expense.
Of interest is the appointment of the Auditor General. To date the Auditor General's report is banded from publication, so will a khaiyum lackey appointment rig the audit general's reports to make Khaiyum and Bainimarama's mismanagement and corruption appear better than it truly is........... and lie to the people of Fiji. Our experience from the last seven years has shown us that they will do anything and everything to remain in power - so lying to the people of Fiji and manipulating accounts and facts will be a piece of cake to them. They just need the right corrupt and immoral person as the Auditor General to do their bidding.
See story in FijiToday blog. The Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum explains the appointments that will be made by the Commission:
“Who are the people that will be appointed by the Constitutional Offices Commission section 133..the chairperson of the Human Rights and members of the Human Rights and Anti Discrimination Commission, the chairperson and members of the Electoral Commission, Supervisor of Elections, Secretary General to Parliament, Chairperson and members of the Public Service Commision, Commissioner of Police, Commissioner of Corrections, Commander of the RFMF, Auditor General and Governor of the Reserve Bank.”
