We won’t bug you but others might……. Saneem said that certain provisions in the decree were not monitored by his office.

The Fijian Elections Office will not engage itself in wire-tapping 48 hours before September 17 election to ensure no one breaches Section 63(2d) of the Electoral Decree.

This is an assurance from the Supervisor of Elections despite the decree saying in the mentioned section that “it is strictly prohibited for any person to distribute in any manner (including through telephone, internet, email, social media, or other electronic means) any campaign material or communicate political messages, including calls to vote for or against a particular political party or candidate in the election.

Speaking to FijiLive, Saneem said that certain provisions in the decree were not monitored by his office.

“I’d like to assure you that the Fijian Elections Office will not engage in any conduct like that and if any person has alleged that, I’d like you to go and ask that person why?.”

“There are certain provisions that are not being monitored by the Fijian Elections Office and that is something you need to decide on your own reading of the Electoral decree,” Saneem said.

He added that it would be better to speak to the relevant authorities regarding section 63 of the electoral decree.

In an earlier statement Saneem had said that the Fijian Elections Office is required to implement the electoral law as it is.

  1. Sure, Saneem’s office has no capability to wire-tap. However, the great Khaiyum has and he will use section 63 to make sure that his Fiji First party wins a comfortable majority.

  2. ” The Fijian Elections Office will not engage itself in wire-tapping 48 hours before September 17 election to ensure no one breaches Section 63(2d) of the Electoral Decree.”

    But the army will.

  3. It is certainly nota practical proposition that either army or police would monitor all communications 48 hours prior to elections. What is the purpose of the provision 63 then? The answer is simple: Firstly, such a provision would intimidate a large proportion of our lamusona population. Secondly, the provision can be used to invalidate election results that are not in line with Khaium’s expectations. The election minister and founder of Fiji First can always claim that people have engaged in unlawful communication and therefore the results are null and void. And who can prove otherwise?

  4. Surely the illegal & treasonous regime are not attempting to feed a frenzy of fear in the hope that indian voters will vote for the ‘Fiji Foist’ out of fear? Such a tactic may be positive for the illegal & treasonous party OR it could engender an adverse reaction such as anger and rebellion from that demographic that will spillover onto the ballot paper.

    It is a high risk approach that has no guarantees for Fiji Foist but the certainty is that the majority i-taukei voters will be observing and deciding many things with these idiotic ploys.

  5. @KTF
    I don’t think that there is a real risk for Fiji Foist. Khaiyum holds all the cards and should something still go wrong, the constitution covers the intervention of Khaiyum’s RFMF thugs.

  6. Fiji is sinking under the Dictator’s . He told us he was going to have a Clean Up Campaign.

    Instead Bainimarama and the illegal AG have made Fiji more corrupt than ever with:
    Nepotism
    Corruption
    Cronyism
    Favoritism
    No Transparency
    Compromised judiciary
    Military acting outside the law
    Human rights Abuses
    Lowest Economic Growth Ever
    Lowest Private Investment Ever
    Media Restrictions.

  7. If elections do take place, then a coup can be expected if Bainimarama loses the elections, or Khaiyum will “rig” the election results in their favour.

    We are already seeing activities to support rigged and fraudulent elections – This includes:
    No exit polling
    the complex ballot
    minimum time allowed for “other” political parties to campaign
    no media freedom
    no freedom of speech
    intimidation
    the illegal constitution forced onto the people of Fiji
    the illegal electoral decree
    delays
    lies and broken promises
    deliberate breaches of their own electoral decree
    the corrupt and puppet electoral commission
    no rule of law
    military officer in senior government positions
    the inexperienced, unqualified and puppet supervisor of elections
    etc.

  8. Fiji’s military dictatorship to run a non intrusive free & fair election, who are we kidding eh? The only election this mob be allowed to run would be the one to elect who their spin doctor should be when they’re all in prison (and keys thrown away).

  9. Elections Office will not bug voters

    But voters will inform Elections Office of parties that do not comply.

  10. It saddens many of us to see how our nation is being systematically destroyed by the group of criminals and undesirable elements who call themselves the government. The transition from colonial rule to ministerial government, then to what we now have today. Sacred institutions such as the GCC, the PM’s office, the judiciary, Attorney General’s office, NLTB, national parliament, Minsitry of Finance, Auditor General’s Office, FNPF, Minsitry of Health, Airports Fiji Ltd, Fiji Ports Authority, USP, FNTC, FDB, Fijian Holdings, Telecom, ATH, Radio Fiji, Fiji TV, Fiji Times, etc etc have all undergone changes in the negative direction. Government is a mighty and pervasive force indeed, but its impact is largely determined by the people who make the decisions.

    I think one of the few positives we can learn from this last 7 years is that it really matters who we appoint as our decision makers in Government. We must seriously take the time and make the effort to ensure that we appoint the right people to parliament. Saneem is just one example of how our sacred institutions have been desecrated through the nepotism and childish and selfish decisions of Voreqe / Khaiyum and co.

  11. What an odd thing to say publicly.

    This boy is absolutely corrupted. He has learnt from the best, Gates, and his cousin Aiyaz.
    I look forward to presenting my evidence against him at some time in the future. He has abused power and process to the point that imprisonment is the only viable sentencing option.

    Enjoy every day you have some petty power, little boy, Your day of reckoning is one day closer than it was yesterday. Your Master Gates will leave like a thief in the night. No one will be able to save you.

  12. Thanks , I’ve reccently been searching for information approximately this topic for a while and yours is
    the reatest I’ve foud out till now. But, what
    about the bottom line? Are you positive concerning
    the supply?

  13. I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your blog. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility issues?
    A handful of my blog audience have complained about my site not working correctly in Explorer
    but looks great in Chrome. Do you have any suggestions to help fix this problem?
