No GCC but Bose Vanua

Avinesh Gopal
Thursday, April 24, 2014

THE proposed National Youth Party will not bring back the Great Council of Chiefs if it is a part of the new government.

But, it wants to see the introduction of the Bose Vanua which will include all chiefs in the country. Also, the proposed party wants to see VAT removed from all basic food items for the benefit of all Fijians.

The proposed NYP's interim president/leader, Nayagodamu Korovou, claimed "VAT is a way in which the government is stealing from the poor people".

"We know how we will compensate for this loss in government revenue," he said.

Mr Korovou encouraged youth leaders and retired teachers to prepare to contest the general election under the proposed NYP banner.

"We are positive that we can win this election only in the name of youths. We believe in our youths and know that they can build a new Fiji, which will be just right for them and their future generations."
