Welcome to the blog. If your are a first time user, please start by reading "Aims and How to Use" above. Welcome back if you are not. I hope you will return frequently to FPCF as comments accumulate.
This posting will always remain on top. It is for notices, questions, suggestions and criticisms relating to the administration of the blog. Please DO NOT use it for other purposes.
Questions 2-31 is where to comment and discuss the constitution and elections.
General comments covering a number of issues should be written ONLY in Question 2. There are the sorts of general comments you would write in a letter to the editor, other blogs and Facebook. Where possible after commenting on Question 2, please take time to separate the ideas and post them, separately, as comments in Questions 3 - 31.
Each of the questions (Question 3-31) is on a specific issue: e.g., the Constitution Assembly, the Queen, the President, Senate, Voting, and so on. Please write your comments where they belong. It is important you comment ONLY on the issue concerned.
Question 32 is a "catch all" for specific issues not covered in Questions 3-30.
Having all ideas on a specific issue located in one separate place will help focus discussion, be easier for reference, and hopefully be more useful to people involved in the Constitution Commission, Constitution Assembly and Election reform processes. And, of course, it will be the first place to turn to for informed, focused opinions by all others, in Fiji and abroad. Later, when patterns emerge on the different questions, I may publish polls to summarise opinions.
You must use your real name or a pseudonym to comment. The use of "Anonymous" does not help discussion and protects your identity no more than a pseudonym.
My role as publisher will be limited to blocking spam and inappropriate comments and making the blog work smoothly. I shall also maintain a link between FPCF and my blog Fiji As It Was, Is and Can Be.
Be assured, all reasonable and politely worded comments in English will be posted.
