Fiji Labour Party registers protest with President

Updated at 3:43 pm on 15 May 2014

The Fiji Labour Party has written to the President Ratu Epeli Nailatikau to call for the Elections Minister Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum to step down from his post immediately.

The Fiji Times reports that the Labour leader, Mahendra Chaudhry, says electoral process will be tainted if Mr Sayed Khaiyum remains in office.

Mr Chaudhry says his party feels strongly about Mr Sayed-Khaiyum’s conflict of interest because he has also been named as the general secretary of the regime’s proposed poitical party.

He says the Elections Office and the Electoral Commission should be absolutely independent of any ministerial control, interference or influence.

  1. the credibility of this election is now gone. People over time (albeit forcefully) accepted the ASK constitution, ASK as the Minister of Election, the election regulations, the (baby) Supervisor of Elections, and now to make it worse ASK himself becomes the secretary of FFP. How can this election be credible? Can ASK himself please explain or better still Nazhat can please explain if this election has credibility.

  2. That is Fiji Labor Party j ho j ho j ho neeta ji. Also please another complain to The New Commissioner of Police. hurray!

  3. Chaudhry is a brave man. He makes a lot of noises and apparently believes that our great president has a sober moment during which he can consider the FLP complaints. He will then call Khaiyum and ask what to do. Khaiyum will tell him to open a good bottle of blue label, curtsey of Aunty Nur and forget about the whole thing.

  4. What I do not understand is that nobody in the opposition scene has the guts to say: listen Mr Khaiyum, either you provide a level playing field or we boycott the elections. This would be a normal reaction in most countries on this planet. It is absurd to write to a senile alcoholic and expect any outcome that would change anything. An election boycott on the other hand would deny Khaiyum and his gang the much graved legitimisation of his dictatorship. It would keep the taps of much needed foreign aid and foreign investments closed and it would expose Khaiyum’s regime for what it is: A human rights abusing kleptocracy imposed on the people of Fiji through the barrel of the RFMF guns.

  5. All political parties must boycott the election.
    The election will never be free and fair.
    Political parties do not complain after the result of the election as it will be rigged.
    The only way to have a free and fair election is to have an interim government to conduct the election.

  6. Professor Biman Prasad, has stated that the price of food items has increased by 60% since 2006. When Bainimarama took Fiji hostage in a military coup to escape from being arrested for treason, murder, corruption and a list of other crimes.

    A number of other things have risen or gotten worse since Bainimarama, the dictator, took over. This includes:
    over 1000% increase for Bainimarama and Khaiyum’s salaries
    over 150% increase for salaries of unqualified military officers in permanent secretary roles
    the national debt has increased to Fiji’s highest ever with every man, woman and child now owing over 7,000 in overseas debt
    unemployment is at a record high
    poverty is at a record high
    cost of living has reached its highest point ever
    corruption is at a record high
    mismanagement and abuse of office is also at an all time high
    crime has increased
    theft of native lands has increased

  7. There is not enough time to prepare for the elections.
    The Electoral Commission is not independent.
    The Supervisor of Elections is a government crony and was not the most suitable applicant.
    Foreign-funded NGOs should be able to carry out voter education.
    Some information on the registered voter card can be misused by the authorities.
    The political parties should be given a printout of registered voters
    It is not a level playing field.
    Opposition leaders knee-capped. Chaudhry and Qarase convictions politically motivated.
    Bainimarama is breaking regulations – campaigning before registration, choice of party colour and emblem.
    Unfair media coverage, especially by Fiji Sun and Fiji Broadcasting.
    Media Industry Development Agency not independent and its chairman is unsuitable.
    A-G is in charge of elections and in Fiji First: a conflict of interest.
    Voting will take place in an atmosphere of fear. They will not be free, fair and transparent.
    Voting must be overseen by independent observers. There are too many polling stations for observers to cover them all.
    the Election Decree allows phone tapping.
    Officials at polling stations could influence how people vote.
    Voters will not be allowed to bring voting advice and reminder information into the polling station.
    Voters may be body-searched if officials think they are breaking this requirement.
    Many voters will not be able to remember the three digit number of the person they wish to vote for.
    Voters are expected to vote in no more than two minutes.
    All the decrees and regulations passed by government are invalid because they were not elected.

  8. “” Voters are expected to vote in no more than two minutes.””

    If they can’t recognise a number and tick it in two minutes should they be voting?

  9. At last Ratu She the idiot hasn’t made a comment yet.

    Good boy girl – now you learning!

    Remember – Wait for the experts to speak first and give you a better picture – then you make a comment – OK?

    Remember Ratu She idiot – I said EXPERTS – i.e. more than one but preferably at least three as one of them may have a different view.

    The topic in question does not need discussion aye, but it may need to be interpreted for your benefit, because you don’t know what it means. Lei vi mapolo ei ira na lalai ra gusu ni cobo.

  11. Hehehehehe…………………. Ratu She idiot!

    Do you know that your bad influence has affected many Ratu She???

    Just look at the comments above!!!

    There you go ……………….. another nutcase wanting to be know-it-all expert out there.

    It’s Joejoe the popeye! Already questioning the credibility of the Elections!

    Joejoe ………………… hello Joejoe.

    Wait Joejoe – OK baby boy. Learn to be patient baby boy!

    Make your own mind – and don’t be played with easily. Come on!

    Politicians (esp. the old ones) are really good at playing you.

    You like being played with?

  12. Chaudhry and Qarase should orgainse and lead a march to President and give a petition.
    Chaudhry is the only one who got guts and can do this!

  13. Chaudhry is a chor. It shows how little substance FLP has when they cannot show this criminal the door. Are the members of FLP gutless or stupid? I hate ASK and Chor. Time for change. As for FLP dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb. Chaudhry is a criminal. Is there no one to take over. What a lame party. One dictator leader and a pack of dumb sheep

  14. But in Fiji it’s acceptable to have criminals in political parties and why not?

    In Fiji they accept with open arms convicted sex offenders on release from prison to immediately return to the pulpit under the guise of Christian preachers.

    One totally confused country.

  15. It is clear from the statements by Sodelpa, FLP and NFP, that they will stand for elections and compromise all their principlea, ethics, etc as they want to be in Power.

    Why are they so desperate to win if they don’t like the rules of the game?

    Why can’t they just protest?

    No they won’t because they are in it for themselves only.

    I am not sure where you got the $7k per head external debt. If your source is mosese waqavonono, pls check as the mutton head does not know the difference between FDI and debt.

    You have a calculator or have done basic maths in class 5, you would know that the external debt number is much less, or around 10% of what you quoted.

    And where has these loans gone to: to make new roads, water and sewage, etc.


  17. Thank you friends for your insightful comments. I just have one simple comment to make. It is addressed to Epeli Naikatikau. Epeli, your response will define you and your presidency. Forget about all the hotels, schools and toilets you have opened. This one response will establish your legacy. Remember how you conveniently went offshore and let Rabuka to coup the Government in 1987. Now, you are here and now. Act decisively. Decide wisely. In your decision lies the seed of restoration or the anvil of national destruction. Decide wisely Epeli Nailatikau.
