27 votes over 24

Simon Hazelman, Savusavu

How effective will the Opposition be against the majority Government in FijiFirst?

It’ll either be 27 ayes and 24 noes or 24 ayes and 27 noes!

What are the chances of Opposition MP’s making a difference?

Let’s hope their involvement in parliamentary committees will bring about some balance! Otherwise a lot of time and money will just be wasted!

Politics, in such a situation, is indeed a real joke!

D’Hondt System

Sukha Singh, Labasa

Warden Narsey claims in his article the D’Hondt system that NFP should get an extra seat in Parliament. And he has done his calculations too.

I would like the Electoral Commission or the Supervisor of Elections to clarify if the calculation made by this professor is right or wrong.

Traffic infringements

Ronnie Chang, Nadi

The mind-boggling, grossly unacceptable, “staring-at-certain-death” 51,000 Traffic Speeding Infringement Notices, as advised, are at best very worrying trends.

Such lack of basic adherence to motoring laws is tremendously troubling. There should not be any more room for such irresponsible drivers. Period!

Repeat offending drivers who have three or more speeding infringement tickets to their names should be highly recommended to face immediate revocation of their driving licence, as soon as practicable for the protection of the lives of all road users.

No “ifs” and no “buts”, if we are to value human lives needlessly and senselessly lost on our highways, by-ways and all roadways.

The gross disproportionate numbers of traffic Police and LTA officers compared to daily increases of motor vehicles must be positively addressed without delay.

The present trend in “low visibility” uniformed law enforcement officers cannot continue. Merely stating or releasing alarming figures or road statistics only serves to embolden repeat offenders.

The toughest deterrents are needed desperately, and enforced forthwith.

Procrastination is the thief of time and “human lives” on our roads.

Act today. Tomorrow is a little too late.

FNPF forum

Amenatave Yaconisau, Delainavesi

While the FNPF Member Forum 2018 is important for members, the Board’s intended activities should be aware of section 37 of the constitution that specifies such constitutional rights and the duty of the state when it does not have resources.
