Fiji regime boss tells people to keep in line

7:33 am on 23 September 2009

Fiji's interim prime minister, Commodore Frank Bainimarama, says he will use the power and authority that he has to get people in line.

He delivered the message to the Fijivillage website as he headed to New York.

In a message to the public and private sector, Commodore Bainimarama says he needs to keep people in line until Fiji goes to elections.

He says the results are evident as in the first six months of 2009, 22 million US dollars has been saved.

Commodore Bainimarama has also stressed that those in the public sector, who are not following the set course, will be removed.

The military-backed interim regime rules by decree.

It says it will not relinquish power before 2014 when it says elections will be held.
