Should squatters be allowed to vote? That's what Fiji's Housing and Squatter Settlement Department director Dharam Lingham wants to know, the Fiji Times reports. The newspaper notes, with a bit of a harrumph, that squatters actually serve as town council members in some areas.
I look forward to the day that a country elects a squatter president. Then, perhaps, we can stop talking about whether it's OK to deny a fundamental right to people simply because they don't own land.
