“I think perhaps the thing that people are responding to most is the effort FBC has put into making its programs accessible to all, through subtitles, as well as its focus on developing local programming. Whether it’s joining in the laughs with the cast of the wildly popular Bati ni Tanoa, learning iTaukei and Hindi from Wasea Bhasha, or following the debate on 4 the Record, these programs are resonating with ordinary people. As Prime Minister, I’ve also been impressed with the short segments FBC has created to promote national pride, unity and love for our country. I’ve found that these little things – like the “I love Fiji” ads – can have a big impact. I know I’m not alone in feeling a huge sense of pride every time I see a young person look into the camera and say, “I’m proud to be a Fijian.” - Bainimarama on FBC celebrating its 60 years of operation in Fiji
4 THE RECORD: Bainimarama had been provided questions before hand and Riyaz Khaiyum was giving instructions at every break; Nand and Delaibatiki had ear phones to Riyaz Khaiyum during interview
From a Fiji SUN insider to Fijileaks: "The interview by Frank on FBC titled "For the Record". The questions to be asked was given by Riyaz Khaiyum before the interview and Frank had already known the questions.The two who were asking the questions Nemani Delaibatiki and Nand had ear phones. Riyaz Khaiyum was giving instructions at every break."

It is unfortunate that an indigenous Fijian is unable to stand as a candidate for election in her own country due to the Decree that prohibits her to stand. How about other Decrees which are yet to be contested in court, it is likely the indigenous Fijians would be treated as a second class citizen in their own country.. someone has to relook at what law and question Bainimarama...

It is not treating indigenous as second class, its just giving every citizen equal rights. Do you really want to get all those bill in place such as qoliqoli and etc. I have been operating in Fiji for quite some time and I know the consequence of having this bills in place. I will be the first one closing my resort down. before they go ahead and put the road blocks and etc.

Isa, how come an indigenous Fijian is unable to stand in the election in her own country? A real itaukei is unable to fulfil her political will because of the law. Its time to wake up.
