If brains were dynamite…

If brains were dynamite Ro Teimumu Kepa wouldn’t have enough to blow her nose.

Snippy old Sally Rounds of Radio NZ interviews her keyboard.

Fiji’s main opposition party has pledged to move a motion to launch a parliamentary inquiry into last week’s election.

The leader of Fiji’s main opposition party, Ro Teimumu Kepa.

Opposition parties claim they have evidence of irregularities, including ballot box tampering, broken seals and extra materials in boxes.

The leader of the Sodelpa party, Ro Teimumu Kepa, says a bipartisan, independent parliamentary inquiry needs to be launched into aspects of the election, where the public can be given the opportunity to come forward and give evidence.

“This will be the first test of transparency and accountability for the Bainimarma government. If their victory is legitimate then they have nothing to fear from such an inquiry.”

Ro Teimumu Kepa says the evidence is being collated into a report for the National Executive Committee.

A preliminary report by the multinational observer group has said the elections were credible.

Seriously?

Ro Teimumu Kepa is dead set stupid.

Frank Bainimarama’s FijiFirst won 32 seats out of 50, SODELPA just 15 seats.

Why is she even still the leader? If she had any humility at all she would have resigned by now.

Word on the streets of Suva is she is only posturing like this to save her leadership.

Whoever is advising her is a political retard though. Fijifirst commands a majority in the parliament, any parliamentary inquiry will be stacked with FijiFirst members and will produce a report that will echo the EU, UN and the Multi-national Observer Group reports of free and fair elections.

It seems SODELPA has learned nothing from the elections.

Fiji has moved on. The politics of corruption and racism was buried in the election.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
