The ‘unstoppable political juggernaut’ just ran out of gas.

The UFDF (United Front for a Democratic Fiji) said today that FBC’s announcement that the proposed Fiji First has deferred its registration because it is still trying to collect signatures, suggests Bainimarama’sblue bus and Fiji Sun poll specialist Nemani Delaibatiki’s ‘unstoppable political juggernaut’ just ran out of gas. Or perhaps the blue buses wheels fell off.

The proposed Fiji First party is not obligated to register within the ‘strict’ 28 day provisions of the Political Parties (Registration, Conduct, Funding and Disclosures) Decree 2013, that the regime forced the established parties to follow last year. However, as the authors and sponsors of the draconian Political Parties Decree, Mr Sayed-Khaiyum and Voreqe Bainimarama have clearly failed to negotiate their very first ‘political’ hurdle as they finally come face to face with the same restrictive and unreasonable demands they placed on others.

The UFDF said the FBC’s Apisalome Coka reported yesterday quote: – The proposed Fiji First political party has deferred registering with the Elections Office. The proposed party which was to have registered yesterday is still collecting more signatures unquote.

The UFDF said this poor showing of support is despite the added advantage Voreqe Bainimarama & Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum had of:-

  • an additional 435 days since February 13th 2013, when the NFP filed its registration
  • the full resources of government behind them
  • the daily barrage of media coverage of Voreqe Bainimarama’s registration teams itineraryover the past 25 days since he launched his registration campaign on March 30th
  • Breaches of the decree that are now the subject of complaints to the police.

The UFDF said if the proposed Fiji First, with all its resources, media hoopla and propaganda, cannot register within 28 days, then the Fiji Sun columnist Nemani Delaibatiki’s quote ‘unstoppable political juggernaut’ just ran out of gas. Or perhaps the blue buses wheels fell off.

The UFDF said this failure of the proposed Fiji First demonstrates two very important things for the people of Fiji to note:-

Firstly: The credibility of the Fiji Sun poll. On April 12th it suggested Voreqe Bainimarama was the preferred PM at 82% and his proposed party Fiji First was the preferred political party at 62%. It also suggested on the 19th of April that the member parties of the UFDF collectively had just 9% support?

If, as the poll suggests, the 3 political party members of the UFDF collectively have just 9% support, then the 24,246 signatures they collected in support of their registrations would presumably represent that 9%. Therefore it is not unreasonable to expect that the preferred proposed Fiji First party that allegedly enjoys 62% support should be able to front up with 167,028 signatures.

Certainly the high 82% preferred Prime Minister and 62% preferred party predictions by the Fiji Sun have not translated into ‘real tangible’ support.

It seems from the deferment of their registration that Fiji First is struggling to just get 5,000 signatures at this very early stage of pre election preparations and given that the UFDF members have not yet launched their campaigns, and collected their 24,246 signatures just through normal branch worker activity, without any media hype says a lot about who really has the support.

The UFDF said that the 3 member parties not only managed to collect their 5,000 signatures and register in time, they submitted 9,246 extra signatures, and could easily have helped Fiji First out by giving them 5,000 signatures so they could register and still have 18% more signatures left over?

Secondly: This was yet another very clear example of the regime not being up to the task and failing yet again to ‘WALK ITS TALK’ and is basically unable to deliver on the same draconian requirements they impose on others.

  1. The “unstoppable political juggernaut’ merely started with not enough gas even though the polls puts them way ahead of all registered political parties.
    Facing the reality of their own restrictive decree is making them dizzy.

  2. Well said RS.

    The main problem for those on the blue bus is that they are breathing too many of their own fumes.

    Better get off the bus while the driver still thinks he knows where he is going.

    The Rear Admiral couldn’t find his way to the sea. Never mind run a country. Enough of their circus act.

  3. Obviously no one else noticed that the price of fuel was reduced to assist the bus tour. Are you all sleeping?

  4. Mick can you pls tell the voters that you stole someone’s elses wife. Is that ethical, christain values? Is this what we want from our leaders?

    You are quick to pass judgement on Rabuka but can you also tell the people why you have not paid you NBF loan for more than 15 years and expecting we the tax payers to fork it out.

    You are a con leader Mr Bed dose!

  5. “Stealing” someone’s wife is a stupid statement. As they say: it takes two to tango.

    How about you ask Frank and Aiyaz about their stolen government? Their salaries? The economy? The soft loans? The lunch money handouts? The corruption of the army, police, courts and media? Make no mistake, people are watching and recording their crimes.

    Does the blue bus have enough room on it to keep all their lies? Hopefully there will be enough gas to make it to Naboro…

  6. The rules of the game can be changed on the run as our great leaders have shown so many times over the last eight years. The Honorable Khaiyum is currently drafting an amendment to the political party degree which will wave registration requirements for all those who are covered in the immunity provisions of the constitution. In addition, he is preparing to charge UFDF with incitement of disaffection with the government. Fat Mick will be dragged to a court sentenced, silenced and removed from the race. Then we will come after Ro Teimumu and take her out. Remember, our enforces in the police and the RFMF all enjoy constitutional immunity until the new Bainimarama government has been formed. Francis Kean is already getting fit in the gym, he has expressed interest in punching the crap out of anyone who could be a serious challenger.
