The latest twist in the Fiji Farce is that Commodore Bainimarama is being appointed Prime Minister, plus he is staying Army Chief. So Bainimarama will be in charge of pushing through the legislation legalising his coup.
It is such a pity that Fiji has had a series of venal and weak-willed Presidents who have played along with the coups.
It shows what a liar Bainimarama is, saying he never wanted power for himself, and would hand power over as quickly as possible.
Maybe when Fiji finally gets a legal Government again, they could give Bainimarama the Saddam treatment – that might put an end to this cycle of coups. Okay no death penalty I agree, but’s let’s settle for life imprisonment for treason.Tags: International Politics
