RAW wants an Indo-Fijian President now. They tried to incite the military, Methodists, Hindus, Muslims, etc, but nothing worked.
RAW does not understand that FB govt is not about Indians, ethnic Fijians, rotumans, banabans, etc. It is about ONE FIJI FOR ALL.
We all are Fijians. The President will be nominated by the parliament after 2014 elections. In the meantime, RAW can manufacture more propaganda material, nothing worked thus far. Keep trying dickheads.
The Prime Minister has today stressed that Fiji’s next President will be chosen by the cabinet.
After the abrogation of the constitution by the Outgoing President, Ratu Josefa Iloilo in April this year, Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama said the procedure is clear under the new decree that the name will be given to the Chief Justice.
Bainimarama said Chief Justice Anthony Gates will then make the official appointment. The Vice President, Ratu Epeli Nailatikau will be Fiji’s Acting President for the time being.
President, Ratu Iloilo goes on leave from tomorrow and will retire from his position after he takes all his outstanding leave.
The Vanua of Vuda believes that the Tui Vuda and outgoing President, Ratu Josefa Iloilo has acted faithfully and truthfully while serving the nation during the political uncertainities in Fiji from 2000 and 2006.
Vanua of Vuda spokesman, Ratu Tevita Momoedonu said they were concerned about the criticisms levelled against Ratu Iloilo for his role and the decisions he took in December 2006, but they believe that the Tui Vuda acted for the betterment of Fiji and all the communities.
The takeover by the Fijian military leader, Commodore Josaia Voreqe Bainimarama prompted what is arguably now the most important politico-security issue of the South Pacific. The regime has been promising ‘real’ democracy, of to one-person one-vote. But in the process has dismantled the Constitution, judiciary, free press and civil society.

The President, Ratu Josefa Iloilovatu Uluivuda, is retiring tomorrow when he takes his annual leave after nine years in the position.
This was announced by Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama, who visited Ratu Josefa at Government House yesterday.
Ratu Josefa was the world’s oldest head of state at the age of 88 years and was sworn in as President by the Great Council of Chiefs in December 2000.
“This is truly a significant event, the symbolic passing of the torch from a statesman who has made a tremendous contribution to the nation and to the lives of all Fijians,” Commodore Bainimarama said.
Joke of the Day.. and does anyone really care about you Rika? We really don’t think you are qualified to talk about RESPECT… and this staged walk out proves what? Proves what the governmet have been saying all along, the Media in Fiji do not want to engage with the government.
The editor-in-chief of the Fiji Times walked out of the Pacific Islands News Association (PINA) conference in Vanuatu in protest at having to share a panel with the Fiji government’s censor.
The editor, Netani Rika, said he could not sit with the people who were showing the Fiji media “no respect back at home” and excused himself from the panel.
The government does not have to please anyone as it tries to bring about changes for the betterment of the country regardless of colour, religion or creed says Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama. “what we want right now in Fiji is to bring about radical changes,” he said.
“Strong changes. Make changes to improve the lives of the people of this nation. No-one can bring those changes into being except the military here, now.”
“We are not elected. We don’t have to please the indigenous community. We don’t have to please any chiefs. We don’t have to please any members in the Methodist hierarchy.
“We do what is good for the nation irrespective of your colour, irrespective of your religion, irrespective of your creed.”
