As we have previously stated Bainimarama and Khaiyum are determined to get their illegal version of the Constitution implemented, by hook or by crook! It contains the immunity provisions they so desperately need to avoid being arrested and spending the rest of their lives in prison. So they are doing anything to remain in power.
Prof Wadan Narsey provides an excellent incite to The 2013 Bainimarama/Khaiyum Constitution [2013 BKC]: the darkness and the light. Prof Narsey also points out that the 2013 BKC includes many good governance principles for the state executive, the legislature and the judiciary. BUT the clincher, as Prof Narsey states, is that Bainimarama and Khaiyum never applied these good governance principles to themselves, since Bainimarama's illegal coup of 2006. So why would they want to change and start now? This is a Trojan Horse tactic, so beware!
The answer is that Bainimarama and Khaiyum don't intend to start now or ever. So far they have gotten away with murder, human rights violations, theft of native lands, lying to the people of Fiji, treason, sedition, corruption and insulting the indigenous Fijian people and their God.
Both Bainimarama and Khaiyum , and their family and friends, have benefited tremendously from the coup and made millions from corruption. Bainimarama promised to end corruption as a reason for his 2006 coup, but he and Khaiyum have become the most corrupt people in Fiji's history.
The 2013 BKC gives them both immunity from their crimes, all the way back to the 2000 coup. This in itself supports all the reports that Bainimarama was behind the 2000 coup and, as the coward he is, used the CRW as his scapegoats and had them beaten, tortured, killed and imprisoned for following his orders.
Now we have the illegal AG (Khaiyum), as reported in the Island Business article, stating that the 2014 elections will be conducted in just a day, with the results posted within 24 hours after voting closes. Khaiyum also stated that he [we know that the Fiji "government" is made up of only two people with others doing exactly as they have been directed] is working with "development partners" to ensure elections are held in a transparent and efficient manner when the country goes to the polls in September next year. These statements suggest that their constitution is going to be forced onto the people of Fiji. We contend that Khaiyum will have a direct hand in manipulating the outcome of the elections. Khaiyum has lied about everything he has done.
The opinions of their development partners [countries that support dictatorships, corruption and oppression] will play a key roll in Khaiyum's plan to force the constitution on to the people. They will provide "international support" for the 2013 BKC.
The reality is that the people of Fiji, will have been cheated into accepting the 2013 BKC. However, the people do have a choice. They can stand together in solidarity against the 2013 BKC and say , enough is enough! No more! We demand a referendum on the constitution. Khayum can use this referendum to test out his voting system.
