Tuilaepa: Bainimarama Lying About Holding 2014 Elections

Posted on Coup Four Point Five - 26 July 2011

TUILAEPA: You can only do so much for Fiji.
Doubts the military dictatorship will hold elections in 2014 has surfaced again with the Prime Minister of Samoa saying Fiji's illegal leader is lying and won't be going anywhere for years.

Tuilaepa Sailele Malielegaoi told AAP he believes Voreqe Bainimarama  doesn't appear to be seriously working towards elections.

Bainimarama promised elections in 2009 but backed off saying Fiji was not ready to go to the polls. He has since floated 2014 as the new election date but it's widely believed the regime does not want to relinquish power.

The illegal attorney general Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum (pictured below) and the illegal solicitor general, Christopher Pryde (bottom pic), are now in charge of the supposed 2014 election and critics say this does not bode well for the country.

Sources have also told Coupfourpointfive they believe the regime plans to spring a surprise election on the nation early next year.
The illegal MINFO chief, Sharon Smith Johns, told AAPplans for 2014 elections still stood and comments by naysayers are "completely irrelevant".
 "It shows a lack of understanding from certain individuals regarding the progress that Fiji is making with regards to reforms, and demonstrates a low level of understanding of the impact these reforms are positively having on the country."

But Tuilaepa says: "What the interim leader has been telling us is all lies. I don't think there's been any progress made. And 2014 is a target which no one would take very seriously because of the contrary actions which the government has taken, like filling positions in the civil service with personnel from the military.
"It's simply not realistic to come to 2014 and tell these people who have been firmly entrenched in the top echelons of the government to go back to the barracks. I don't think he's planning to go anywhere for many years to come."

Fiji's pro-democracy movement in Australia plans to make a push for support at the Pacific Islands Forum in September but Fiji may not get the time or attention it wants with the meeting having a number of more practical and winnable issues to tackle.

Tuilaepa says he didn't expect any progress that would allow Fiji to rejoin the regional meetings.

"It is the urgent wish of every forum member that Fiji comes back to the fold to rejoin the forum but you can only do so much. It's up to the Fijians to decide what their status is."(original source AAP)
