And planned party polls strongly before launch

The Prime Minister’s new political party has scored an instant hit with the people in the latest Fiji Sun Poll. Although the PM, Voreqe Bainimarama, has still to launch the party, our pollsters threw it into the mix with the existing four registered parties for the first time in the third poll. The PM’s party polled a whopping 45 per cent. The Social Democratic Liberal Party (SODELPA) which led the party race on 14 per cent in the last poll has dropped to eight per cent. The People’s Democratic Party also slides from 13 per cent to two per cent. The Fiji Labour Party continues its downward movement from seven per cent to two per cent. The National Federation Party remains at one per cent. Those who are still unfamiliar with parties and undecided have dropped from 50 per cent to 45 per cent. Others who do not like any of the parties are one per cent. His new party popularity coincides with his soaring fortunes in the third poll. Mr Bainimarama is back at 79 per cent in the preferred Prime Minister stakes after losing three percentage points  in the previous poll. There has been no let-up in his  visits up and down the country. This week, he opened two schools’ telecentres, one in Kalabu and the other in Nausori. This Sunday, he will sail to Lau to visit islands he had not visited in his last trip there. His and his party’s strong polling reflects the people’s response to the unprecedented rural and urban developments happening in the country. SODELPA leader Ro Teimumu Kepa has jumped from less than one per cent to eight per cent. The poll was done in the week till March 7, the day she was elected as leader. Mahendra Chaudhry has dropped from six to three per cent, Laisenia Qarase, Sitiveni Rabuka and Mick Beddoes scored one per cent while Tupeni Baba and PDP president Adi Sivia Qoro have zero. Seven per cent did not  like any of the leaders.

  1. Yeah – like pigs soar ?

    Isa – only in Fiji . where a party that is not even a party yet can win a poll ?

    But wait ….

    OM Goodnes – a party that is not even a party can win the election even ?

    Wow !

    A pig just flew past my window.

  2. Here in Australia some major newspapers proclaim themselves in their mastheads as “Independent. Always”.
    The Fiji Sun can’t do that. If it did it would be lying.It is common knowledge the Fiji Sun is a regime mouthpiece newspaper which has abdicated its watch-dog responsibility to the public. It is now a newspaper that is engaged in propagandizing for the Bainimarama regime.
    And it does that quite shamelessly without any regard to upholding ethical journalistic standards.

  3. Delaibatiki like Bolatiki are beyond redemption inasfar as their journalistic independence is concerned.

    How is it even logically possible for the illegal & treasonous Bainimarama’s party to be an ‘instant hit’ when no one knows who’s in it or what their party hopes to achieve IF they win the elections?

    At this present time all they’re banking on are all the taxpaid infrastructural developments but their track record on fundamental values like the rule of law and the respect for human rights overshadows those gimmicks at every turn.

    The regime is truly deluded if they believe that the voting populace (especially in the rural areas) are that naive.

  4. Delaibatiki provides a good case-study on how a once respected journalist can go to seed when he losses his moral compass.

  5. ….a Party that is not even a Party can win…Ateca, that shows what this current although unelected Government is doing for the people.

    Look out the window again and make sure that pig that flew past your window never sneaks up your skirt and through hell and back.
