Call to embrace PM's vision

PRIME Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama has appealed to the youths of Fiji to turn their backs on the politics of the past and embrace his vision of a new and better Fiji.

During his tour of Kadavu, Commodore Bainimarama said old politicians were part of Fiji's past.

"They have no fresh ideas to take the country forward, they are locked in the same mind-set that created our national traumas in the first place and they are bogged down in the same old politics of sowing suspicion and discord," he said.

"They want to re-empower the same elites who brought Fiji to its knees in the first place. They are yesterday's men and women."

He promised the people of Kadavu that iTaukei land would not be converted to freehold land like the SVT and SDL governments did.

The PM will stand in the election as the head of a new political movement, that will be announced next month.
