BAINIMARAMA: FIJIANS DON'T WANT ELECTION "Everybody supports what the government is doing"

WELLINGTON, New Zealand (Radio New Zealand International, June 4, 2010) – The leader of the Fiji military regime claims the people of Fiji are urging him to delay his plans for elections by 2014.

Commodore Frank Bainimarama says the people are happy with the regime’s focus on infrastructure development, agriculture, tourism, health and education.

The Commodore says instead of condemning him, foreign leaders and former Fiji residents who oppose his government should talk with the people on the ground.

He told Auckland-based Radio Tarana that he doesn’t understand why Pacific Islands Forum ministers say things are getting worse in Fiji.

"Everybody supports what the government is doing and in fact, they want an extension of the time. In fact, they don’t want an election. So I really don’t know what these people mean by saying he situation is worsening."
