Written By : Vani Veikoso Turkey, Ulamila Wragg Rarotonga, Naomi Roberts Australia . Nine months from now we should be going to the polls to elect new leaders who we hope and pray will bring us new energy and vision, better opportunities and the beginning of the end of our coup culture.
Although the debate on this coup culture is going to occupy our everyday conversations and thoughts, we know we are in the majority in saying: “The coup culture is not embedded in the minds of the majority of the ordinary citizens but only on a select few with guns.” Therefore, we will claim our right as declared in the UN Human Rights Declaration, Article 21, Part 3 which states: “The will of the people shall be the basis of the authority of government; this will shall be expressed in periodic and genuine elections which shall be by universal and equal suffrage and shall be held by secret vote or by equivalent free voting procedures.” Therefore, we say bring on the elections in March. We, the people will choose the kinds of leaders we want and we know what we want.
