Adi Sivia: Ask the hard questions

GOOD governance will be a critical issue in the upcoming general election, says People's Democratic Party (PDP) interim president Adi Sivia Qoro.

And voters need to ask the hard questions about the issues of all political parties.

Adi Sivia said in the running of any government or organisation, governance mattered.

"Simply put, governance is the process of decision-making and the process by which decisions are implemented (or not implemented)," she said.

" Governance can be used in a number of contexts such as corporate, international, national and local governance.

"The issue of good governance is a critical issue that we as a nation need to respond to collectively because it affects all areas of our lives.

"Good governance is an issue that we as citizens and voters of this country, Fiji, need to focus on. Each voter needs to ask themselves the question — does good governance exist in all of these contexts in this nation?

"Every major decision made, be it at provincial level, local government level, national level and within the different sectors — was it participatory and inclusive?"

The party has confirmed that in its build-up to the election, it will focus on creating employment.
