Press Release

FM Congratulates Security Actors for a Job Well Done

Fundasaun Mahein (FM) would like to congratulate the PNTL, the F-FDTL, STAE, CNE, political and religious leaders for their tireless efforts in securing and ensuring a successful presidential election. These security actors often come under strong criticism notably from us at FM, however praise is in order this time around.

The above-mentioned actors as a whole acted in a professional and fitting manner and this will allow the building of greater trust among Timorese in their state institutions. This will also give our international friends greater confidence in our ability to run our own country with the imminent departure of UNMIT & the ISF. This also gives us reason to be cautiously optimistic on the successful conduct of the upcoming parliamentary election in July and for the future in general.

Both presidential rounds were marred by a few incidents, but on the whole these were fairly minor and through the efforts made by the relevant security actors who mobilized hand in hand, these were successfully resolved and contained. A good example was the attack on Taur Matan Ruak’s campaign headquarters in Taibessi, whereby the PNTL acted swiftly to contain the incident. Credit should also be given to political leaders in affirming their condemnation of the incident and for preventing any sort of retaliation.

The presidential election was on the whole a success and to build upon this success, FM recommends a couple of things. Firstly FM noted a higher abstention rate than in previous elections. The lowering level of political engagement among the population is of concern and FM links this to the legal impediment forcing people to vote in their places of registration. This forces people to travel great distances and creates a financial burden many cannot assume and therefore FM recommends that the National Parliament amend this law as soon as possible, so that it no longer applies come the parliamentary election.

Secondly, FM recommends that be given greater penal authority with respects to electoral transgressions in time for the parliamentary election. During the presidential election, when an electoral transgression would be recorded, STAE & CNE would have to call upon the intervention of the PNTL, whom would be reluctant to act because they are more accustomed in dealing with physical acts of violence. This created confusion and this could be settled by giving greater punitive powers to STAE & CNE but also by clearly defining the rules to all actors in relation to electoral transgressions.

FM hopes that all the security actors can build upon their excellent performances during the presidential election and that this will translate into a successful parliamentary election. We also hope that political leaders will continue to engage in positive campaigning and encourage their militants to do the same. Finally, we thank religious leaders for tirelessly preaching for peace and hope they have the strength to continue in the lead up to the next election.

FM supports all the positive things that have been done by all the above-mentioned actors and congratulates them once again for it. Congratulations are also in order for the people of Timor-Leste for their conduct during the presidential election and for successfully electing their next head of state. We hope that Timor-Leste can become a good model to other post-conflict and developing nations.
