Church seeks integrity from Illegal Regime

Church seeks integrity
Monday, July 21, 2008

THE reality is that interim Prime Commodore Minister Voreqe Bainimarama is in control, says Methodist Church president Reverend Laisiasa Ratabacaca.

Mr Ratabacaca said the church only hoped Commodore Bainimarama would "stick to his commitment" to hold elections next year.

He said the church recommended to Commodore Bainimarama last year that elections should take place as soon as possible.

"That was our position and now we have gone past 12 months," Mr Ratabacaca said.

"Personally he is the captain of the ship. Sometimes he's democratic, sometimes he acts like a dictator, sometimes he acts like the Prime Minister, sometimes he acts like the military commander. But in the end God reigns."

Mr Ratabacaca said he hoped Commodore Bainimarama and his regime would maintain some integrity.

He said Commodore Bainimarama's intention not to hold election next year after making a commitment to the Forum year had disappointed many.

"It's very unfortunate. But I believe he will stick to his word. We hope and pray that good sense will prevail."

Despite failing to meet the church's expectations, Mr Ratabacaca said they were hopeful that elections would go ahead as initially planned.
