Elec­tion call

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?
