Fraudulent Plan for Referendum on holding Elections or 5 years Extension to Illegal Rule?

There are two concerning stories floating around the PS at the moment concerning referendums. Lt-Col Pio Tikoduadua apparently has asked the Electoral Commission to look at what is required to hold a referendum and what timeframe would be required for one. Separately I heard of a plan to hold a referendum on whether the population wish for elections now or for the current administration to continue for another five years.

I believe this proposed referendum is to get a majority vote for the Current Administration and be able to claim legitimacy from the International Community. With the current media restrictions and no compulsory voting the spin doctors could manipulate the public and achieve over 50% of the vote.

You need to get this information out there so a campaign can be run to either kill the referendum or inform the public of the truth.
