The Supervisor of Election is reminding Fijians that we have reached the halfway point or two years of FijiFirst Government rule and that those who intend to be an election candidate need to be in Fiji for 18 months in the next 24 months. Prime Minister Bainimarama and his FijiFirst team won the 2014 General Election by a landslide victory and I believe the whole nation thank God. Even those who did not vote for the ruling party, that our current Government has been consistent in its service to the people, even in the current crisis caused by severe Tropical Cyclone Winston and the flooding and threat of TC Zena. The announcement of the $70 million rebuilding assistance is just one current example of the FijiFirst Government putting Fijians first. Is there a law in our Constitution whereby the people can request for the next General Election to be scrapped because they want the current Government to continue its service delivery to the people? One does not have to be a brain surgeon to predict that there will be another landslide victory for the FijiFirst Party, a bigger one, come the 2018 General Elections. Imagine all the money and time saved if the people could just make the election call to allow the current PM and FijiFirst Government to continue moving Fiji forward without the hassles of a General Election, which they will win with a landslide victory anyway?
