Manifesto of help

Siteri Sauvakacolo And Nasik Swami
Sunday, June 15, 2014

A NUMBER of issues are in the Social Democratic Liberal Party manifesto ahead of the September general election.

Party leader Ro Teimumu Kepa said their priorities included helping those who were reaping the bitter harvest of poverty and unemployment.

"Never have so many people been poor, never have so many been without jobs and incomes," Ro Teimumu claimed.

"Never has there been a greater need to enact measures to put food on the table and provide work for those in need.

"SODELPA is up for the challenge — if the people give us the votes we require to form government, we will begin 100 days of emergency action to get the country back on course and to bring initial relief to ease the burdens of the masses."

She said the party was committed to bringing relief also to those whose lives were disrupted regularly by power and water cuts and who were denied other basic services.

"Rectifying these problems will take time, but you can be assured, we will be engaged on finding solutions from day one.

"All will be revealed at the manifesto launch in July.

"We will invest in the ailing, deteriorating health system that tests the patience of the pubic every day and that cannot properly meet their medical and clinical needs. There is more, much more. What I have just mentioned are the pressing concerns that require urgent attention.

"We cannot produce miracles; but we can promise that in government we will bring a high level of commitment and energy to restoring Fiji."

She told party supporters at yesterday's party naming that they would offer a different style of leadership and a moral and ethical code.
