That your humble petitioners are aware that the Indian community has never authorized the preparation and presentation of any petition advocating or supporting the introduction of a system of nominated representation in the Legislative Council of Fiji, or in the Municipal Councils of Suva and Levuka. 3. That your humble petitioners are shocked to learn that Mr. B. Singh supported by Mr. Munswamy Mudaliar16 did on the 16th day of May 1935 introduce into the Legislative Council of Fiji a motion advocating that the European and Indian members be nominated and not elected and that the said motion was carried by 5 to 3 unofficial votes.
If we are going to have a genuine Council where the public opinion can be genuinely and properly reflected, the first condition is the widening of the franchise. Every adult member of the population, whatever race he belongs to, must have a vote; it must be a question of universal suffrage. Doubts have been cast here about the fitness of the Fijian to elect his own representatives to this Council. I am personally quite convinced that the Fijian— the common Fijian—knows his mind just as well as we know ours.
I would go a step further and suggest that it should be left to the Fijians themselves. A referendum can be taken and public opinion amongst the Fijians ascertained as regards their political aspirations. Someone mentioned that the Fijian is politically backward and the Indian is politically far in advance of him. The Indian belongs to one of the oldest civilizations in the world and consequently there is nothing surprising if his philosophical or political ideologies come to the same level as those of other civilized countries in the world.
