DIWALI POLL BID FAILS

One political party decided they would push the Fijian Election Office to keep pre-polling open on the day a sizeable population celebrates Diwali. That political party forgot the areas where pre-polling happens do not have a lot of Hindus. Egg on its face?

REALITY CHECK FOR TANYA

Tanya Waqanika needs to understand journalists who do turn out to cover their campaign meetings, actually record the meetings. Her rant against Fiji Sun claiming that she was misquoted, surprisingly, only on social media and not through any official channel is another example of what is wrong with fly by night politicians like her.

The two journalists she lashed out against in fact have the recording of the campaign night, a whole one hour and eight minutes long recording where she was heard very clearly making claims about the judiciary and expat Judges. Perhaps she did not like being called out by the Chief Justice Anthony Gates who set the record straight on how the Judicial Services Commission and not Government appoints judges.

REHABILITATION PLAN?

SODELPA manifesto calls for a review of natural disaster and rehabilitation. Will this mean they will go back to the policy whereby houses only in villages would be rebuilt by Government following any natural disaster?

Voreqe Bainimarama had changed this policy and stated that every Fijian affected would be assisted.

NO SMOKING – SERIOUSLY?

This local passenger ship has a warning painted in big letters which says: “Strictly no Smoking”. As you go up the stairs, you see a big orange drum cut out and used as a makeshift ashtray.
