Khaiyum told Radio NZ International that the bodies tasked with overseeing Fiji’s elections will be set up by the end of the month [December 2013].
He said that the search is still on for good credible people to become part of the seven-member Electoral Commission, which will direct the elections office and Supervisor of Elections, who is also yet to be appointed. This is a joke.
Finding 7 good credible people via a transparent process is really easy. It only becomes difficult when you try to cheat, lie and manipulate the process to find “corrupt” people who will do as they are told and NOT do as they should. AND, as we all know from experience, Fiji’s AG (FAG), Khaiyum, never says what he means. He is a liar in a suit.
There are a lot of good people in Fiji who are far more credible than Khaiyum or the dictator Bainimarama will ever be. BUT they will not join a corrupt commission because they know that the real function of the commission is to implement whatever they are told to do by an inferior minded and corrupt person [FAG] whose only focus is on rigging the 2014 elections to retain power and control over Fiji. Besides, if they do join and do not do as they are told then they face harsh consequences – a trip to the military camp or nearby bush for a possible beating or to have the barrel of a rifle inserted into the anal cavity (a Bainimarama favorite).
FAG found two very good and highly credible people for his Constitution Commission, remember. They were two world experts that FAG thought he could manipulate and fool with his ideology and land grab theories. It didn’t work.
The two world experts, Prof Yash Ghai and Prof Christina Murray, did their jobs the transparent and right way. They also listened to the people of Fiji and drafted a “peoples” constitution, for Fiji. Their 2012 draft constitution did not include FAG’s dictated provisions. Subsequently, the BainiKhaiyum 2013 constitution, not of the people, was forced on to the people of Fiji. So now, FAG needs to find corrupt people with some semblance of credibility who will do as he dictates.
Any person who does join FAG’s electoral commission is either corrupt or not as credible, or they are willing to drop all standards and integrity in exchange for some promise of reward. Therefore, it’s easy to understand why Khaiyum would struggle to find 7 good credible people to join his rigged electoral commission. Unless Khaiyum already has 7 members selected from amongst his corrupt family and friends.
Others suggest that FAG is using the electoral commission as a delaying tactic to help him retain control in the run-up to the polls, which are to take place in September 2014. BUT again, and true to form, FAG lies by telling Radio NZI that he wants transparent credible elections, which obviously requires making sure all the ducks are lined up, all the t’s are crossed and i’s are dotted, which means perhaps spending a bit more time in respect of the nuts and bolts of running the elections office. Bullshit! Fiji’s illegal AG has never done anything transparently and neither has he told the truth!
Like a TV soap opera, we await, to find out which 7 "credible" people will be appointed by the evil and corrupt FAG.
