Call for end to coup culture

Nasik Swami
Thursday, April 03, 2014

THE newly-appointed president of the National Federation Party, Tupou Draunidalo, has advised party supporters to look into the eyes of the country's future generations.

"Ask yourself, am I doing enough to ensure that this child will grow up in a Fiji that is stable, secure and prosperous?" Ms Draunidalo said.

She said the freedom for many Fijians was limited and that Fiji had experienced life under a military government, on and off since 1987.

"The coup culture holds us back from progress and development. It keeps us in the third world in spite of all of our resources.

"And it holds us back from better schools and hospitals. It holds us back from more employment creation and better wages.

"It holds us back from leaving a stable, secure and prosperous Fiji to our future generations."

Ms Draunidalo said the NFP was a party of respect for human rights and equality for all citizens of Fiji.

"The party was in fact born out of the struggle for dignity and justice of all the ordinary people of Fiji. This is reflected in the party constitution since inception."

She said the natural resources of this country belonged to the indigenous people.
