Prime Minister of Timor Leste, Estanislau Da Silva, pauses in his election campaign in Bacau to speak with Marie Cameron of Nimbin Community Radio 2NimFM. Sounding confident of the outcomes he explains the differences in Fretilin's policies to those of the opposition parties, the problems that have confronted Fretilin, and the aspirations of the Timorese people. Da Silva lived as an exile in Australia because of the Indonesian invasion in the 1970s, and was once questioned by the Northern Territory Police for his role in maintaining a clandestine radio transmitter in Australia which was the main means of contact with the Fretilin forces fighting the Indonesian occupation of East Timor.

Paul Cleary, author of a book about the Timor Gap treaty betwen the governenment of Australia and that of East Timor. But from the disputed BCL fields, Timor gained nothing. These are the same fields from which Australia, since 1999, had been reaping $1 million per day."
Paul Cleary speaks with 2NimFM about the economic policies of the competing parties in the current Timor - Leste ( Timor of the East ) elections, coming up this 30 of June.

James Dunn, diplomat and Consul to East Timor, researcher and consultant to the UN, the government of Timor Leste, government officials of TL, advisor to high profile public figures in TL politics, looks back and expresses his heartfelt opinion of the true role of the "Truth and Friendship Commission", set up to establish the true role of the Indonesian military in the gross human rights violations in Timor Leste. How does this relate to the current election campaign?

Sahe Da Silva, representative of the Fretilin party in NSW has been in East Timor for the last 4 months as a media advisor and campaign organiser for the Fretilin party in the three election campaigns of this year. The last campaign is for the general legislative elections due to take place on June 30.
