The Seychelles Column - By Christopher Gill

We Want True Democratic Elections Not Sham Elections in Seychelles

Happy New Year all Freedom Loving Seychellois!
I would like to take this opportunity to wish all Freedom Loving Seychellois, a Happy New Year! We are all born free and no one gives us Freedom. Freedom is our birth right. Seychelles is our Motherland, she belongs to us, as we belong to her, let not one man  take our Motherland away from us: Happy New Year!
We Want True Democracy Not Sham Elections
Seychellois want true democracy to reign in Seychelles. We do not want any part of tyranny, communism or sham elections to prop up failed regimes. We want the Right to life, the Right to Liberty, and the Right to the persue  Happiness to be guaranteed to all Seselwa Rasin in their Motherland, no matter where they live in the World.
We will not accept any excuses why we cannot enjoy our Freedom as God intended we do.
We will not accept excuses over why we cannot enjoy the Right to life, and meet our Maker, when he decides, as opposed to when a Communist thug decides.  
We will not entertain explanations of why we are not entitled to be happy in our Motherland, while we are overrun by foreigners willing to pay bribes to enjoy paradise and launder wealth.
In 2011 I say this to PL Communists and their cohorts: Seychelles belongs to Seselwa Rasin, not to any one else. This is a constant in the political equation of Seychelles that will never, change.
Communists and Collaborators that attempt to keep Communists in power, before warned: it is the wish of the Seselwa Rasin people, that Democracy reign in Seychelles, and sham elections be done away with once and for all. All voices must be heard, not just some voices that sound off according to instruction.
Electoral Commissioner Setting Up Sham Elections
It is becoming highly evident to me personally that the Electoral Commissioner Hendrik Gappy, who doubles as the Registrar of Political Parties in Seychelles, is setting up the Elections of 2011 to be a SHAM ELECTION to keep a failed regime in power, led by James Michel.
Everyday, Mr. Gappy, who has been appointed by the PL Presidential candidate on a short leash Two (2) year term of office, uses the SBC to brainwash the Public into believing that his election process is “free -fair and credible”. It is not of course.
Early in the process of elections for 2011 there is a strong case to demonstrate that the elections of 2011 will be sham elections.
MSR Denied Certification To Participate
On December 17th, 2010 Mouvman Seselwa Rasin (MSR) was denied certification to participate as a bona fide political party in the process, by Hendrik Gappy. Mr. Gappy blocked certification of MSR because MSR poses a real threat to the ruling PL Communist parties hold on power. Because MSR members and supporters come not only from the Opposition, but from the PL as well, PL did not want MSR taking votes from it in the upcoming elections.
A little here and there would be enough to defeat James Michel, the only President in our history to lead us into bankruptcy.
Briefly, Mr. Gappy claims the party platform of MSR is discriminatory, but our lawyers say differently. They are right of course and Mr. Gappy is wrong as usual. A party platform cannot discriminate against anyone, since it has not been put to practice, under color of law or government action. It is only a proposed program for reform and change of status quo until validated by the support of the People.
Furthermore, after over Ten (10) years of being a Registrar of Political Parties, Mr. Gappy has no rules or regulations in place for party certification. This means he cannot legally deny certification any political party. Without rules and regulations in place the Registrar of Political Parties is a little like a crab- without claws.  
Any hobo lawyer will tell you that enabling legislation creating an agency is not sufficient for the functioning of the agency. You need rules and regulations in place to function as an agency. It is illegal to function on as AD HOC basis, especially when you are dealing with the election process. Mr. Gappy has admitted to functioning on an Ad Hoc basis on SBC only this week. Hence he knowingly has broken the law in the past in the course of administrating elections.
In reality, Mr. Gappy’s disclosure on SBC reveals that all our past elections were illegal. Now he wants the next election to be “credible”.
A dereliction of civil servant duty if ever there was such a case. Yet the man was just handed a Two (2) year contract again. Why?
No Equal Protection For MSR Supporters No Human Rights
As MSR is denied certification, Mr. Gappy has curtailed the rights of MSR members and supporters who have their names on the Voter Register. This being the case, the Voter Register cannot be credible, since those MSR members and supporters will not be able to vote for their presidential candidate Christopher Gill. Any Voter Register that victimizes a voter based on his or beliefs, cannot be remotely credible.
To restore credibility to the Voter Register in this instance, the Voters that support MSR must be given the right to cast a vote for MSR candidate. Alternatively, Mr. Gappy must resign from the office of the Electoral Commissioner before the next elections, to restore credibility to the process after MSR is certified.
Verification Process of Names on Register Badly flawed
The process Mr. Gappy uses to verify names on the Voter Register is badly flawed. This makes the Voter Registry not credible. The flaw is in the process which is highly controlled, to contain discovery of the fraud within the Voters Registry. Read below.
Mr. Gappy opens the Voter Registry once every year, for Two (2) weeks, in January of each year. He allows you to go to your District to check for YOUR name. His highly flawed process does not permit you to go to his office and reveal fraudulent names on the registry be they patent or latent in nature. This being the case, no one inspects the fraudulent Fabrikes on the Voters List.
We in MSR believe there are as many as 5,000 Fabrikes on the Voter register that are not bona fide Seychellois. They have obtained citizenship under GOP and applied for Citizenship, they have obtained Citizenship through buying passports, which we know has been common practice in Seychelles for many, many years. 
Credibility of the Voters List could easily be certified if the list was made available on the internet. No secret in having the right to vote. But Gappy uses an elaborate process to check ones name and district.
Mr. Gappy knows that MSR will address these issues, and the balance of power and political control in Seychelles, hinges on this key point. Hence his attempts to ridicule our serious efforts to form part of the political process in Seychelles.
Sudden Departure of the Chief Electoral Officer and Dubious Replacement
A final point that renders the Voter Register flawed and not verifiable as being accurate of the bona fide voters in Seychelles, is that the Chief Electoral Officer for over Ten (10) years Mr. Anacle Tirant, has just suddenly resigned or retired, without Notice to the Public. Mr. Tirant has been caretaker of the Electoral Register for many, many years, and he just packed up and left on the eve of a Presidential Election.
Miss Jenny Adrienne has been named as the replacement of Mr. Anacle Tirant, and her qualifications and trustworthiness have not been solidly established with the Public at Large. In fact, her career record leads one to believe she is bent politically towards the PL Communist Party and not a neutral person.
Here are the reasons of this assertion: 1. she retired from Revenue Commission and Customs after a long career, 2. went to the Central Bank, left quickly; 3. went to the Supreme Court, as Master of the Courts and left abruptly, without Notice to the Public as to why she left.
Now, if someone has bounced about that much in Government in this short time span as Miss Adrienne, one can only ask why has she been handled with kid gloves all along the way only to be given the post of Chief Electoral Officer on the eve of elections?
I leave this to Miss Adrienne to clarify to the Public as she is so obligated to do. If she does not clarify this adequately, MSR will call for her resignation as well, as we call for Mr. Gappy’s , for breach of public confidence, in knowingly violating material provisions of the Seychelles Constitution in the discharge of official duties.
For her part Miss Adrienne has told us that she is capable and can do the job as Electoral Commissioner. Mr. Gappy backs her up and says that they can make the Voter Register credible in the Two (2) weeks Miss Adrienne will be working on the list in January 2011. I suspect she said she was capable when applying for Master of the Court post and the post at the Central Bank of Seychelles, which she quickly departed from.
Against this back drop is numerous years of poor voter turn out to verify their names on the Voters List every January of each New Year. 8%, 12% 16%, etc.
If Voter turn out is poor over the next Two (2) weeks, then the Voters List has not been sufficiently verified by those entitled to vote, to push forward with elections using the list. It renders the list not sufficiently credible. All parties in opposition to PL must stand united and Boycott the use of a not credible Voters Registration List.
When Mr. Gappy moves forward with a flawed Voters List, as we expect he will, he will be implementing a flawed election process upon the will of the people. The world usually calls such process a  SHAM ELECTIONS.
Sham Elections should be BOYCOTTED by the People, to take the Government of the day down the hard way. We will have to reclaim our Freedom.
Mr. Gappy knows that, that is why he spends each night on SBC to brain wash our People over his already, dubious process.
His efforts remind me of the Jonestown, Guyana massacre where Jim Jones in Guyana, the guy who mixed a KOOL AID ( Orange Squash) for his church of 1000 people and made them drink it. But Jones  did not tell them the mix had a little Cyanide in it. Hundreds died, listening to Pastor Jim Jones, “a man of God”.
Bona Fide Seychellois Overseas Still Not Permitted on Voters
List
While Mr. Gappy and Mr Tirant have been registering patently or latently fake citizens or Fabrikes on the Voter Registration List for years, they have been denying bona fide Seychellois that reside overseas the right to be placed on the list and the right to vote in upcoming elections.
The residency requirement for Voter Registration was done in 1993, because of the high cost at the time to register voters residing over seas. Today, with internet technology, it is easy to register a Bona Fide Seychellois who resides overseas to vote. No effort has been made by PL , Gappy or the Attorney General to do that in order to enfranchise these bonafide Seychellois.
Overseas voters have even formed groupings on Facebook to have their voice heard. If these people cannot be placed on the Voters Register List, then that list is flawed to the extent that these names, cannot vote. There numbers are substantial and can turn an election.
You can scam, you can try to Sham, you can have lunch every day, using the People’s money, but we will expose you, until we get true Democracy in Seychelles!
SESEL POU SESELWA!
May God Bless All Freedom Loving Seychellois!

Gappy has received a new tool of manipulation and fraud namely his new E voter registration machine.Gappy wants us to believe that he is independent,fair and transparent and his new toy will prove that he is right,becuase his machine is tamper proof and unriggable.
No Gappy it is not.Manifacturers and the computer programmer responsible for the magic formula has access to software and hardware specifications therefore they can pre programmed the system or manipulate it to ensure results favor to the regime.these machine are not open to public,elcetion official and computer experts for scrutiny and nor was the machine tested and verified in order to check its efficacity .Opposition was not aware of and did not know anything about the introduction of this system in the coming election therefore they should boycott such system unless they can verify the software first.
These machines are also equipped with modems accissible by computer,telephone and satellite therefore can be manipulated by remote from a centralizwd location.

Tochnology is a good thing,but it cannot supercede the constitutional and mANDATORY PROVISIONS OF ELECTION LAW,WHICH REQIURE OPEN AND VERIFIABLE ELECTIONS.

Credibility of the Voters List, credibility of the Elections, credibility of the process of casting, registering, verifying a vote if by machine, is not based on the veracity of a machine, but on the credibility of the person responsible for over seeing the process.

This hinges on the issue of Gappy's own credibility.

Guppy's credibility hinges on how he is hired, and who hires him and furthermore, how he conducts himself as Commissioner of Elections.

This is why the call for an Election Commission which itself elects a Commissioner is necessary in Seychelles, for elections to be credible.

Guppy is not Bernadin Renaud, who was a Commissioner of high integrity.

Gappy is not Andre Sauzier either.

Elections cannot be credible with or without machine, if the Commissioner is appointed by a candidate.

Gappy should resign now, before he places Seychelles democratic credentials into a deeper pit.

Government must implement the law for and Independent Election Commission, as has been asked for for the past 17 years and recommended by the Commonwealth countless times.

If democratic process is not implemented, then Boycott of process must of course, be considered seriously by all parties.

I wish other people would comment on Gill's rubbish other that Gill himself. So far I have read the 5 comments and they are clearly the work of Twistopher masturbating by looking at himself in the mirror. This is a new year, can we have new and improved methods of doing politics?

Improved methods of doing politics will not come from Pp and collaborators they know nothing else than communism,democracy only will set forth new methods of doing politics and that is why change is imperative.

Ther are obviously others replying, yourself included. The only differnce is that your response was worthless in teh sense of any usefulness, but rich in saying something for the sake of saying.

I believe Gill has raised a good point here and not least by tajking the matter to court, a case the PL or Gappy cannot ignore and not least a case that will reach the international media sooner or later putting more weight on the PL.

MSR did not want to go to court.

MSR wants to follow rules of the process, to beat PL in Free and Fair Elections, expose their candidate to the simple minded, and make them know, that the PL candidate, in 2011 is the same person that BANKRUPTED Seychelles in 2008 and sold our PATRIMONY from 2004-2010 to anyone that promised him a golden castle in the sands of the desserts.

There is nothing TWISTO about that.

SESEL POU SESELWA will not stop, it has a life of its own, and supporters make their good wishes known to us everyday.

As they do, fighting the PL for the MSR TEAM is like walking on clouds. It becomes effortless in terms of energy.

You are wrong when you say it is Gill that posts all comments.

It is also an insult to the intelligence of all those people who have posted valuable comments, which I consider earnestly when forming an opinion and MSR considers when it forms a position on an issue.

MSR listens, it is not a puppet operation as Mr. Michel's handlers refer to him. That is a dign of great disrespect on their part.

You know who you are. Now, does Michel know who you are? I do.

The electronic system is not for voting, but voter registration. God forbid if one could vote via the internet, then PL would get 110% of the votes. :-D

The New age mon cue!! Time may change but wounds leaves scars.

The electronic voting system they intend to introduce. What electronic voting system??

Seychelles has besieged itself with different types of races amongst them Ex- Irish army officers that was trained into different fields, ranging from weaponry, explosive , intelligence and technology. now you tell me; if one of these Irish with their high tech gadgets wishes or is ordered to temper with the voting system Which Gappy wants to put in play what can we do??

Remember the Irish officers answers only to the president not even our dummy commissioner Quatre can do something about them.
They claim they are under contract to redress the police force but lately under his Excellency’s orders from state house, they have done the opposite and undress all of our fundamental rights, they have bugged phones, tap IP address bugged car and even temper with private mails all in the idea of pleasing the president!!

Chris is not the only one taking on PP and SNPL for a better Seychelles there are other watchful persons such as me overseeing the means to seek and expose corruption and violations. Chris is right into taking the credibility of the electoral commissioner into account. Guppy as sarcastic as it sounds is illiterate and in peril when it comes to IT (Information technology).
That idiot of a man does what his masters ask him to do and in return he remains 64000 Rs of the tax payers fund ahead.

These Irish and other sub contracted foreigners which are well into satellite and internet features will tweak the elections for James upon any request, since we all know that he is the only person that pays millions and thousand for office break ins and other malfeasant acts against any idea that might bring about his downfall.
I am not Chris and not a Gill but i believe and see where this is going.

Gappy should resign and his online collaborator should heed this warning; “under each cover you turn lies a surprise, MSR is everywhere it could even be the very person you are sleeping next to”.
Lest you forget Sesel Pou Seselwa.

Whether it is E- registration machine or it is E- votering machine the problem are the same namely the software and hardward could be pre -programmed by manifacturers,it could be manipulated at distance and since there is no access to the system for verification know one can test the accuracy of this machine.I could hear Gappy telling us things like it was a computer error,a human error,a machine jam,memory problem and so on ,as excuses to simulate their fraud.With E votering Pp can have 120% with E-voter registration machine Gappy can remove names (purging) from lists or add names to the list while sitting in his living room watching satellite TV drinking champagn and eating caviars.

Gappy should resign not only becuase he is corrupted and be corrupted by PP but also becuase he was not elected in this position as the constitution stupilates but appointed by Pp ,he is illegally holding this position.

Which Constitution are you talking about? Read Article 115 of The Constitution of The Republic of Seychelles.

Funny people talking about the Constitution when they don't even know what's in there!

Reply to Funny-

You sound like Gappy yourself trying to make sense of your world.

The pressure leaks through your brian.

Be warned, Guppy, this is just the begining. We are collecting information on you that we will expose to the World before the Eve of Elections if you do not change your heart and certify MSR.

The point is not that Gappy has not been elected. He does not have to be. He is appointed as you do not mention to hide the ball and who you are.

Under the 3rd Republic, we agreed to allow the President to appoint a person of integrity acceptable by all sides. That is Article 115.

Read the minutes of the Constitutional deliberations to conclude the intent of the Founding fathers and Mothers.

I am one of those people and recall well.

Bernadin Renaud was an example of a man of integrity and no one complained or said a peep of Renaud.

He was accepted by all sides to handle an election. Any one who questioned the integrity of Renaud, would be a good patient for the mad house.

Gappy however, has no integrity and the recordings show that clearly when taking into consideration the surrounding circumstance of his statements.

Even his ex girlfriend calls him a "PIG".

Gappy is not capable of fairness.

Gappy is not capable of officiating over elections.

Example: he has implemented not one SI' for the enabling legislation for Registrar of Political Parties after 10 years.

He is a total putz.

For this, he has to go.

What he has tried to do to MSR is just another example of his PUTZ operation.

Keeping Gappy will discredit the validity of the process of elections in Seychelles.

A simple enough point, we must all rally under.

Bye Bye Guppy! Get a real job, PUTZ!

At MSR, Guppy could not qualify to even sweep our office, and James Michel appointed you to run elections?

I wonder why?

SESEL POU SESELWA!

I hope Michel has taken note of what has happened in Tunisia,mass mobilization has toppled Dictator Berali who has since fled to Saudi Arabia,after being refused asylum by France,Cyprus and other domocratic countries.

Michel has two options,ône replace Gappy by a person acceptable to all parties and register MSR as a party immediately and unconditionally in order that its supports can cast their vote in the coming election. Or secondly Michel can keep Gappy to do Pp dirty jobs and face mass portest.

We cannot afford to allow Pp crooks to conficate our liberties any longer.Time for change has come.

Sesle pou Seselwa,Vive MRS.
