I haven’t considered standing for elections: Bainimarama

Fiji Broadcasting Corporation - Thursday, June 10, 2010

Illegal Fiji Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama says he hasn’t considered contesting the 2014 elections. 

He says his focus is building a better Fiji and handing a stable country over to the new government that comes into power in 2014.

"I haven’t considered standing for elections in 2014. I am only focused on achieving the objectives outlined in the Road Map to 2014 to ensure Fiji and its citizens are socially, economically and politically stable and ready to go to the polls under the new voting system," said Bainimarama.

"What I have been telling the people especially in the rural areas is that we should work together to provide the new elected government or the new political party that will win the elections in 2014 a stable Fiji," he added.

"That’s what we will be doing now in the next four to five years to provide that environment so that by the time we get to elections in 2014 we will have a stable Fiji to give to the new elected government.” 

In his visit to Ra earlier this year Bainimarama says he will step down as Prime Minister in 2014. 

However he has been gaining strong support to remain as Prime Minister from the villages and provinces he has visited.
