Party vows to restore GCC if elected

THE People's Democratic Party will restore the Great Council of Chiefs if elected to parliament.

Speaking at a recent campaign in Wailevu village, PDP North president Navitalai Masivuya said the paramount chiefs in the 14 provinces of the country had a God-given right to exercise their powers of control over the iTaukei people.

Mr Masivuya told villagers in Wailevu the 2013 Constitution recognised the rights of all ethnic groups and with this, the rights of the iTaukei people to retain the seat of their leaders through the GCC.

Mr Masivuya said the PDP would ensure the chiefs of the 14 provinces in Fiji were restored to their rightful places.

Mr Masivuya said with the restoration of the GCC came the need to educate the chiefs especially in the area of financial education and management.

He said PDP would ensure they provided leadership and financial management education for members of the GCC.
