PDP endorses women's rights

THE rights of women and youths are fully endorsed by the Peoples Democratic Party.

Speaking to villagers in Wailevu during a recent campaign, PDP North president Navitalai Masivuya said they believed in women making up 30 percent of parliament.

Mr Masivuya also invited women of the village who were interested in joining and standing in the election to do so.

He said their participation was a way of exercising their right to be actively involved in political decision-making even though it had certain conditions.

Mr Masivuya said it was time for Fijians to fully recognise the rights of women.

Mr Masivuya also said the major elements of any government on earth were families.

He said governments were made up of small family units in which stood women who played major active roles in the day-to-day livelihood of a home.

He said if women played an active role in their families which contributed to the running of a nation then they should be recognised at the tables of decision-making.

Mr Masivuya told villagers it was time Fijian people were liberated to have open minds so that they could fully recognise the rights of women.

He said the party also recognised the rights of youths because these were the future leaders of our country.

He added PDP had a youth department within their party that ensured the active involvement of youths in decision-making.
