FRETILIN congratulates Prime Minister Elect Kevin Rudd and his front bench team for being elected the new government of Australia at yesterday's general election, said party Secretary General, and former Timor-Leste Prime Minister, Dr Mari Alkatiri.

“We know Kevin Rudd. He has been a friend of Timor-Leste for a long time, even before the 1999 referendum. We are elated that the Australian people have embraced he and his Party’s vision for a more compassionate, respecting and forward looking society," said Dr Alkatiri.

“In September 2001, Kevin Rudd offered his standing as a senior leader of the Australian Labor Party to assist FRETILIN gain membership to the international community of progressive political parties, the Socialist International, of which the Australian Labor Party has played a leading historical role. Because of this FRETILIN is today a fraternal colleague of the Australian Labor Party. We are always positive and happy to see a party from our Socialist International family be entrusted by their people with the task of governing; entrusted to put in place the democratic and social justice ideals we all share as International Socialists,” added Dr Alkatiri.

“Our two countries have historical links going back for more than half a century, to World War II. FRETILIN and most in the Australian Labor Party have a historic fraternal relationship which grew out of the 24 years of our struggle for independence. We are committed to continuing to build on these links, to continue to nurture future relations based on mutual respect, real fraternity, oriented towards a mutually beneficial and economically and environmentally sustainable future.”

Dr Alkatiri concluded with underscoring that as the largest political party in Timor-Leste, FRETILIN looks forward to positive and meaningful dialogue at the earliest opportunity with the new Labor Government with regard to how Australia can engage positively and meaningfully towards stabilizing the security and political situation in Timor-Leste.

“We look forward to a mutually respectful and productive dialogue to address any issues which may impede our mutually shared goals of building lasting and trusting relations between our two parties and nations,” said Dr Alkatiri in closing.

Dear beloved Maubere leaders and Maubere people and the beloved readers around the world,

This year, 2008, Fretilin leaders and maubere must take a decisive role to educate Xanana, Ramos Horta and the barbaric intellectual killer who have used Xanana and Ramos Horta to advance their objective.

Xanana and Ramos Horta fail to understand that the destruction of East Timor after the referedum was the result of those intellectual people who are currently holding the position either within ALP or other civil institution.

it is truth that we need to forgive each other, but Xanana and Ramos Horta should recognised the killing of pregnant women and their children by these intellectual leaders should be a basis to build the moral order of the nation' killing is killing. The barbaric intellectual killers who have planned, advised and instructed the the innocent people to destroy and to kill must take full responsibility. They must be punished under the rule and we must forgive them by accepting as a human in our nation. Accepting and respecting their right to live in East Timor is the real step of forgiveness, but forgive them to allow the destruction after destruction must not part of our forgiving policy.

Fretilin leaders and Maubere people now stand to dismantle this criminal party. Now Maubere people and their leader must ask Xanana and Ramos Horta: are they both either with the enemies of the maubere nation or with Maubere people who are the backbone of the struggle and progress?

Xanana must face justice. He was a great apostles of Fretilin, but he is the most traitor as a judas who dishnour Maubere people who have supported him.

Let 's educate Xanana and ramos, they both should out from power this year.

We no longer allow the former enemies of the Maubere nation to build their power based in East Timor by various types of means.

Xanana, Ramos Horta must out because of their interest to have a permanent power, they have associated the barbaric killers to destroy Maubere nation.
