Congratulations,  FijiFirst, You Deserve The Victory

The allegations by the  Mick Beddoes/Mahendra Chaudhry group about voting rigging have been ruled out. There have been some discrepancies but they did not affect the overall integrity of the electoral process. While the group members are exercising their democratic rights common sense and sound judgment have prevailed. Their complaints have been subjected to the normal processes as required by law. Counting has not been undermined.

The irregularity claim is a diversion from the real event. That is we now have a party with a clear majority. The people have spoken and they have said that they want FijiFirst leader Voreqe Bainimarama to lead them.

Many people are anxiously waiting to see who will be in the new government.

FijiFirst deserves our hearty congratulations. It will form the new government. Those who served in the Government for the last eight years are also on the list. They have an impressive track  record.

Their hard work and service helped build the Government’s reputation and rapport with the people.

Never in the history of this country has a government delivered such outstanding service. Many rural areas which were inaccessible by road are now open to transport and increased economic activity. Schools, health centres, telecentres, water and electricity are part of the unprecedented developments accomplished.

The thousands who benefitted showed their appreciation by voting for FijiFirst candidates, particularly Mr Bainimarama.

He has crossed rivers, rode horses and trekked places no other prime minister has been before. He has set the benchmark for future leaders. Those who rise to leadership positions must be prepared to serve and go to where people live.

His first-hand experience provides him with valuable insights about people’s plights and the motivation to do more.

When he entered the election campaign people in their thousands flocked to see him in the blue bus. In the election, they turned up in their thousands too to vote for him.

His deputy, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, has been a  key figure in the FijiFirst campaign as general secretary. Votes he gained in the polls reflected the hard work he put in day in and day out. He and Mr Bainimarama are a double act and they complement each other.

Today, FijFirst holds a thanksgiving service at the ANZ Stadium in Suva. It demonstrates that the party acknowledges God’s blessings on the elections and gives thanks to him.

Prior to the elections, many people had prayed for a smooth and peaceful event. Their prayers have been answered.

The overall event was a success as vouched by the multinational observers.
