With digital radio all you need is a digital receiver or a device with a DAB+ chip in it and that’s it – no subscription fees, no messing about with sign- ing up or logging on, just tune in or buying a decorder radio or a poor quality narrow cast radio.. The Australian commercial radio industry launched digital broadcasting in five capital cities – Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth throughout May 2009, creating a new wave of consumer interest and excitement about this well-loved medium. In 2010 digital radio trial services switched on in Canberra and Darwin, Radio Apna Digital is Australia’s First 24/7 Digital Hindi Radio. You will need a new radio to tune into digital radio and these are available from retailers Aus- tralia-wide. Broadcasting from different bands of the fre- quency spectrum directly affects the characteris- tics of AM, FM and DAB+ transmissions. Whilst AM is characterised by longer wavelengths, ensuring it can travel further but is subject to higher degrees of interference, FM broadcasts from VHF Band II (88-108MHz), a higher fre- quency resulting in shorter wavelengths. Whilst reception is largely improved compared to AM, interference may still occur, but with Digital, you get a blue-ray sound quality. Radio Apna will provide a National Hindi service in Australia.

  3. 3. We deem it necessary to make this preliminary submission at this point because we beli the Constitutional process as sanctioned under Decrees 57 & 58 is fundamentally flaw lacks credibility and integrity. It is driven by the regime to achieve its own self-serving as is evident from the various repugnant provisions in the two decrees promulgated on 2012. It is manifestly clear that the process is not going to be inclusive, participatory or even Further, it has been unilaterally imposed on the people of Fiji without any consultat their legitimate representatives. We note that the Commission itself has expressed strong reservations about the ma which the process is being driven. This was clearly stated in a media statement issue July by its Chair, Professor Yash Ghai Among the issues Professor Ghai commented on were those of immunity for the perpet Fiji’s coups and the absolute powers conferred on the Prime Minister in appointing mem the Constituent Assembly which will determine the final constitution. Professor Gha contended that the process should be kept independent of the regime given the probabi some of its members may be contesting the forthcoming elections. This is a stand The Fiji Labour Party has maintained from the very beginning – that the back to democracy and constitutional rule should not be driven by the regime. We now that there is only one legitimate and credible way back to constitutional rule. And th abide by the advice rendered in the decision of the Fiji Court of Appeal (FCA) on 9 Ap (Qarase vs Bainimarama-Civil Appeal No ABU 0077 of 2008s). The Legitimate Way Forward The FCA judgment advised that a caretaker Prime Minister be appointed with the speci date to oversee the process of holding general elections and restoring constitutional rul a realistic time frame.

Taking cognizance of the principle of necessity… for the purposes of these procee ings, it is advisable for the President to appoint a distinguished person indepen ent of the parties in litigation as caretaker prime minister to advice dissolution Parliament and direct the issuance of writs for an election under s60 of the F Constitution. This is to enable Fiji to be restored to constitutional rule in acco dance with the Constitution.” We submit that His Excellency the President has the powers (Executive Authority Dec 2009) to take the following course of action appropriate to establishing a credible and le process of returning Fiji to constitutional rule: Based on the advice rendered in the Fiji Court of Appeal decision, His Excellency to a caretaker Prime Minister – a distinguished person, independent of the political pa
