Govt laying the platform for elections-PM

Fiji Village News - 27 April 2010

Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama has stressed that the Government is laying the platform for elections for 2014 and nothing or no one can stop that.

Commodore Bainimarama told the people of Sawaieke that the main reason why he has brought in Army Colonels to hold the top posts in the Divisional Commissioner's Offices. 

He said this is because they want the job to be carried out efficiently.

The Prime Minister also told the villagers, that come 2014 they should know who to elect into Government from the work that is being carried out.

The Prime Minister while addressing the people in Lamiti, Gau also blamed the SVT and the SDL governments for the setbacks over the 10 years. 

He said there were many racist policies brought up by the two parties.

Bainimarama told the people the two political parties brought about racial discrimination in order to hold on to power, and this was one of the main reasons why indigenous Fijians rushed to Parliament House during the 2000 coup, without fully understanding what they were doing.

Bainimarama also told the people of Lamiti that the problem with indigenous Fijians was that they did not speak their mind, or be up-front about issues, allowing politicians to manipulate them.

Commodore Bainimarama also stressed to the people of Lomaiviti, that his Government will not build Churches and Community Halls, as their main focus is the upgrading of school facilities, water development projects and other needs, that are of major concern to people living in the rural areas.

Most of the villagers that Commodore Bainimarama is visiting now, are apologizing for not supporting the government and the People's Charter. 

They are now saying that they support the Charter and the government's initiatives.
