PM's advice to voters

Dawn Gibson
Thursday, May 08, 2014

THINK very carefully about who you vote for.

This was one of the messages from Prime Minister Rear Admiral Voreqe Bainimarama yesterday while he was commissioning a new government vessel at the Government Shipping Services fleet yard in Walu Bay.

"So I make this appeal to everyone as we approach the election on September 17. Please think very carefully about who is best placed to continue to take our nation forward," Rear Admiral Bainimarama said yesterday morning.

"Do not be swayed by big talk and cheap promises. Look carefully at the record and examine the facts before you make your choice."

He said it was important that voters took into consideration that this would impact their children and the future generation.

"Because it is no exaggeration to say that the future of your children is at stake.

"Our future as a nation depends on the choice you make. So for Fiji's sake, choose wisely."

He said the looming democratic future for Fiji was a bright one.

"As I keep saying, our future as a nation has never looked brighter as we move towards the first truly democratic election in our history.

"For the first time under our Constitution, we are all Fijians, we all belong. So let us unite and work together to make our nation great."
