PM: Poll win will be a bonus

Salaseini Moceiwai
Tuesday, February 18, 2014

PRIME Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama says if he wins the general election, it will be a bonus for him.

Speaking during his farewell church service as military commander at Sukanaivalu Barracks in Labasa on Sunday, Commodore Bainimarama said he informed Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop of this in Suva last week.

Speaking in the iTauke language, Commodore Bainimarama said: "I told the madam minister that if I win the election, it will be a bonus. One of the military's biggest tasks we have accomplished is changing the people's lives and overcoming the past."

Commodore Bainimarama said the country now had a constitution that would guide Fijians to work hard. He said bringing positive changes was something the military and government were emphasising for a better Fiji.
