FORMER Commonwealth secretary-general Sir Don McKinnon says he is disappointed that Voreqe Bainimarama is moving away from democracy in Fiji.

Sir Don, who described Bainimarama as a complex workaholic who came out of the navy to command Fiji’s military forces, said Fiji’s regime leader had felt let down by the Qarase Government.

“Bainimarama believes there is no other way out of the current situation than to delay elections but it is critical to take people with you,” he told TVNZ.

Sir Don said Bainimarama had to be more positive about taking the rest of Fiji with him because if the public did not get a say in Fiji’s future, they could “get quite agitated”.

“Democracy comes in many forms [but] the most important thing is for the people to have a say.” – fiji uncensored
