UFDF says an attempt by the Bainimarama government to defraud the itaukei community of Nasau village in Koro on September 24 is obviously part of the regimes strategy to justify not holding elections in 2014
In a statement issued today the UFDF said the information its members have been receiving from Koro explains why Bainimarama is linking the establishment of his party and his resignation as Commander to his plans to complete the regimes development program first.
The UFDF believes the regime plans to ‘extract’ signed letters and petitions of support from mainly itaukei communities in exchange for promised development and to use this as a justification for them to remain in power and not hold an election.
The UFDF said in Nasau in September a petition was circulated to villagers to sign with the explanation that their written consent was needed for a proposed seaweed project in their qoliqoli. However when the actual letter was sighted, it turned out to be a letter from the Tui Nasau (Ratu Aporosa Kaunisela) and his people to Prime Minister Bainimarama giving him a mandate not to hold general elections in 2014.
The typewritten and prepared letter the sources say could not have been prepared by the Tui Nasau or anyone in Koro and is likely a document that originates from Regime sources.
The villages refused to sign the petition and have called for elections in 2014. The UFDF says the regime is clearly planning to manipulate the itaukei community and they are using the promise of development funds to extract the support.
The UFDF calls on all other community leaders who have similar stories to the Nasau people to come forward and expose the wrong doing.

It looks like this regime was spiraling out of control since 2006 and it will speed up and crash soon. All the promise of clean up is gone now it seems they are taking Fiji to the cleaners for their own personal pockets. Now the Military Leader and the Lawyer are just looting Fiji.

The Qarase government before this regime would surely have crashed the economy way back if FB had not forcefully taken over...what are you? Blind? Go to RBF, do some research and stuff it where it should be...you people only want to yell and whine about things you only hear about but have no backing for it. But you and your like are the very people who secretly enjoy all the benefits of the numerous changes implemented since 2006. So the new budget says no fees for any child because there's a per-student allocation of $250 - why couldn't any previous government do this? I will tell you why...BECAUSE THEY WERE TOO BUSY LOOKING AFTER THEIR OWN INTEREST AND FAT POCKETS but the likes of you will not be able to see that. You will only be able to pick on FB and his govt because he didn't give too effin hoots to the lies of you...lol.

Fiji forward - you and others including UFDF think that Frank and Aiyaz will simply hand back power and watch from the sidelines - wake up, you fools - election will merely legitimitize their rule, for they will rig to stay in power - and the chiefs and the i-taukei will fart from the sidelines with no wind to blow these criminals away

How will Tupeni Baba protect my vote if I voted for SODELPA for change. He said the aprty will change the Constitution and remove Immunity - all good promise but tell me will the military allow Baba and his party? I am afraid to vote for if I vote for any other party except Frank's, there will be another coup and Baba will be the first one to run away from Fiji

A very clear scenario is beginning to emerge now - just look at the statement below from NFP. Well, Indo-Fijian voters might vote for FLP and NFP including Felix Anthony's PDP.

What about former Minister Rajesh ( who was fired by SDL) who promised to donate his salary but did not ??

Mick Beddoes has clearly outlived his expiry date. Why not retire quietly in Nasoso if he can peddle nothing else but half baked stories?

I wonder which party Millis Beddoes ( of theminsex) represents on UFDF, after disbanding his own political party due to lack of support.
