Fresh vision

PRIME Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama will offer a fresh vision for every Fijian, saying he would seek their support for the election campaign.

He made the statement during the celebration of the Year of the Horse by the Chinese community in Suva at the weekend.

"But I can tell you now that its foundation will be continuing stability, a healthy and vigorous economy and a climate that encourages new investment to create and sustain," Commodore Bainimarama said.

"The foundation of this stability is the new Fijian constitution which among other things creates common and equal citizenry, a prerequisite to any modern and successful nation state.

"The coming weeks and months promise to be challenging and also immensely exciting."

He said when the parliament is chosen — with every Fijian 18 years and over having an equal say for the first time — Fiji's revolution would be largely complete.

He said Fiji was building a smarter country.
