Is the fight on? It will be interesting what will transpire in the months ahead between Mr. Bainimarama's interim regime and the SDL politicians.
So, if SDL forms a new party, say FFF (Fiji For Fijians), will Mr. Bainimarama then start to say,
"I will abrogate the constitution because I don't want FFF to contest the elections."
By then, we will know for sure that this coup happened because Mr. Bainimarama has a "bone to pick" with SDL.
And that's not new for the rest of us on planet Earth.
We’ll Form A New Party: SDL Publish date/time: 03/06/2008 [11:10]
The members of the Soqosoqo Duavata ni Lewenivanua party will form another party if the Interim Prime Minister Commodore Frank Bainimarama abrogates the 1997 Constitution just to stop the SDL from contesting the next election.
Speaking in a talkback show on FijiVillage Viti FM live radio, SDL National Director Peceli Kinivuwai said abrogating the Constitution will not stop members of the SDL from forming another party to contest the election.
Kinivuwai said in the past politicians have moved from one political party to another in time for an election and this can be the same for SDL if their members if the SDL members are not allowed to contest the election under their party banner.
Commodore Bainimarama earlier told Fijivillage that the military and the interim administration will ensure that the SDL does not contest the next general election as they continue to go against the People’s Charter process.
