The D'Hondt Monkey Show is Fast Becoming a Circus as two more losers become FFP MPs. Mohammed Mursalinul Abe Dean with 589 votes and Mataiasi Akauola with 615 votes join their 'Monkey Minister' in Parliament
The ridiculous provision that allows election losers under Khaiyum's D'Hondt system to take up seats in Parliament is a mockery of democracy? In his obsession to hold on to the majority of seats, he decided not to include the by-election provision in his 2013 Constitution. Khaiyum should gazette that all students who failed their courses should be awarded their degrees or those who missed out on Civil Service jobs should be ready to take up positions vacated by successful candidates. SODELPA and other parties should be ashamed of accepting such a provision (and sending their own losers to Parliament) as they prepare for the next general election. There can't be two systems - one for parliamentarians (losers) and another for others outside Parliament!
"...Secrecy is the keystone of all tyranny. Not force, but secrecy... censorship. When any government, or any church for that matter, undertakes to say to its subjects, 'This you may not read, this you must not see, this you are forbidden to know,' the end result is tyranny and oppression, no matter how holy the motives." --Robert A. Heinlein, -If This Goes On
