Fiji Dictatorship Constitution Delayed While Discussion with Chinese Ongoing

Fiji's trashed draft constitution to be replaced with Dictatorship draft
Fiji’s public broadcaster is reporting a further delay in the constitution process although the Fiji regime says its legal team is on track with drafting a new constitution.

According to FBC News, the draft will be now given to the Constituent Assembly next month to replace the draft which was dumped last month.

The Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says the re-drafting is done through the Solicitor General’s Office which will hand over the new constitution to the President.
The President will then give to the Constituent Assembly next month.

What Fijians really think of illegal PM Bainimarama!
This contrasts with the televised announcement by the interim prime minister, Commodore Frank Bainimarama, four weeks ago that the new draft would be ready by the end of January. There has been no explanation what has caused the delay.

The Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum has reportedly said the Solicitor General’s Office will hand its draft to the President, Ratu Epeli Nailatikau. The President will then hand-over the new constitution to the Constituent Assembly next month.

According to Commodore Bainimarama, the constitution will also be ready next month.
However, the Constituent Assembly, which is to debate the document and was to begin sitting four weeks ago, is yet to be named and convened.

Chinese military to the rescue!

Meanwhile, the Fiji interim foreign minister Ratu Inoke Kubuabola, has met his Chinese counterpart Yang Jiechi in Beijing and reportedly discussed developments in Fiji regarding the implementation of its roadmap towards the 2014 elections.
Tis all about pleasing and pleading with the Chinese

The Fiji information ministry says in doing so, Ratu Inoke acknowledged with appreciation the support and assistance provided by China. It quotes Ratu Inoke as saying bilateral relations have grown from strength to strength because of the two governments’ commitment to forge stronger partnerships in the various areas of common interest. He also said Fiji remained steadfast in upholding the One China Policy.

Ratu Inoke also met China’s Special Envoy to the Pacific Islands Forum, Stanley Li, to discuss current developments in the Pacific region.
