Electoral Commission criticised on silence over vandalism attacks

By: Mika Loga 

Fiji First 1The Fiji First Party has questioned the Electoral Commission’s ability to keep an eye on what it describes as certain actions that maybe politically motivated and criminally wrong.

The Commission came under fire from the Fiji First Party today on its failure to speak out on allegations of  tempering with party stickers on taxis and vehicles, as well as vandalism of  those properties with stones.

Fiji First General Secretary Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says, the party has also received complaints of graffiti over party photos in Labasa, which also have swear words on them, with other writings, asking people to vote for other parties.

Sayed-Khaiyum was also concerned with lack of media attention to these issues as well the involvement of  certain LTA and Police officers on some of  them, which he says, their actions could be politically motivated.

“These are the sort of things taking place, the type of thuggary slowly creeping in..whether its an indication  where some of the political parties are getting desperate and want to resort to violence and that type of thuggary to intimidate people, I think is something the Electoral Commission needs to come out and speak out against..it needs to proactively with the Police Force or  whoever the security agencies are”.

Sayed-Khaiyum further raised concerns over a political poster seen on a bust stop, saying that is a public place.

“We’ve also been told for example a poster somewhere in Sigatoka where a political party candidate has put up a poster on a bus stand or bus stop..that is a public place”.

Sayed-Khaiyum says, his raised the concerns with the Chairman of  the Electoral Commission by phone.

  1. The status of our country debt friends.
    All these while we were worried that our ever escalating debts have reached to an alarming and worrying $4.8 billion. This is official and as reported by Reserve Bank as well.
    But what is not reported and even more freightening is the information on hand about unreported debts like contingency liabilities/debts etc which now amounts to approximately $7.4 Billion in total. In the absence of any Auditor Generals report, the onus is on the government of the day to be very transparent.
    Also, we have been informed that the recent public advertisement from Fiji First about GDP and Growth is manipulated. The double dipping of infrastructure development is double picked under capital investment and also under consumption/expenditure. Again government needs to explain this.

  2. Whats Khaiyum complaining about? All he has to do is pass a decree making such things illegal/unchallengable. Exactly what he has been doing for last 8 years. Oops–sorry . I forgot no one one gives a fark about his decrees any longer. No longer backed by threat of army guns.

  3. What an idiot this useless decree manufacturer is! He wants Fiji to have a thuggery-free elction when has been a pratising thug all this while! He should do the smart thing and stop complaining for he is a main supporter and beneficiary of thuggery in Fiji. Its his own medicine he’s tasting.

  4. I knew for a fact that Vorere Josaia was a selfish and mentally unstable fool. But Khai Au yaz is equally mentally unstable and selfish or even worse. He has been doing it for more than seven years, intimidating people and far worse actions. Now he is complaining when others are simply exercising their rights to speak and to vote. Well, Khaiyum should read well into what is happening. People hate the dictator and him and their thugs and trolls and their lot. He should be thankful that our people are only scratching their pictures on the posters and not their faces. People are throwing at the cars and not knocking the people. What a totally selfish person.
