Fiji group urges MSG to spurn Bainimarama

3:03 pm on 10 July 2009

The Australian-based Fiji Democracy and Freedom Movement has asked Melanesian Spearhead Group leaders not to waste any time by seeking to re-engage with Fiji's interim prime minister, Commodore Frank Bainimarama.

The MSG is holding an extraordinary meeting in Vanuatu today, with the organiser shunning publicity of the event which the Fiji leader is expected to use to outline what he believes is his mandate to rule for another five years.

The Fiji Democracy and Freedom Movement says the MSG leaders should seek a dialogue with true representatives of the people.

It says Commodore Bainimarama represents no one but himself and a very small elite group of people, whose interest he is trying to protect.

It says his lies and broken promises have brought shame on the office of the Fiji's Prime Ministership.
