STATEMENT FROM

THE UFDF

[No 4/2014]

[Jan 10, 2014]

In welcoming the appointments of the Electoral Commissioners, the UFDF said that although it was a positive first step towards credible elections, it was a pity that the regime did not take this opportunity to act in a bipartisan and inclusive manner in these appointments by asking for recommendations from the political parties.

In welcoming the appointments of the Electoral Commissioners, the UFDF said that although it was a positive first step towards credible elections, it was a pity that the regime did not take this opportunity to act in a bipartisan and inclusive manner in these appointments by asking for recommendations from the political parties.

The UFDF said this would have been in line with best constitutional and democratic practice.

Consequently, the UFDF says, these appointees, some of whom it holds concerns about their independence, are all handpicked by the interim Prime Minister and Mr Sayed-Khaiyum. This will place an additional burden of responsibility on each of them to ensure that they act with absolute impartiality and reject any attempts at interference in their work.

The UFDF said the Yash Ghai Commission is a good example of another non bipartisan appointment that was supposed to be independent but that did not stop the regime from attempting to influence its deliberations and directly interfering with its work.

  1. Each of these persons appointed to the sham electoral commission have been appointed by the illegal human rights abusing junta. They must sing and dance to the tune of the unelected illegal and treasonous AG or they will be trashed like Ghai or the cowardly Father Barr. Like the corrupted junta judiciary they are totally compromised and must eventually be brought to justice for their crimes against Fiji and Fijians.

  2. A much more balanced & appropriate response from PDP

    Sorry Mick but the UFDF response sounds like you guys are grovelling in the first few paragraphs before you get to the heart of the matter.

    The bottom-line is that the appointment of these commissioners is simply more evidence that the fix is in.

    Are voters happy to play the part of mindless pawns in the illegal & treasonous regimes attempt to manufacture consent, or are voters determined to strategically magnify the rort for the world to see?

  3. Thanks Mick, this is a very balanced statement. We have discussed internally and came to the conclusion that you will be a strong candidate for a junior minister job under the Khaiyum government that will be formed after the guarded and managed elections.

  4. Micky mouse and his bunch of UFDF losers.

    Shut the fuk up you bastards.

    When you had a chance to rule Fiji, you guys fucked it up.

    so shut your big mouths now.

  5. Adi Torika Labalaba is not Chinese is she?
    what is she doing in Shanghai?
    Is she there courtesy of the Bainimarama regime?
    If she is then her sycophantic support for the illegal rulers is understandable.
