THE SODELPA youth wing president Peter Waqavonovono has revealed that better education has been an issue of continuous discussion among the party's youth base.

Mr Waqavonovono said the party was committed to improving the country's education sector.

"SODELPA is looking at further improving the free tuition campaign and will look to ensuring that the graduates from our schools and tertiary institutions walk into jobs and not poverty," Mr Waqavonovono said.

"Improving the education system will also mean working with stakeholders like the unions, students and parents, to improve teaching and educational facilities.

"Providing equal opportunities from urban to rural schools will be the hallmark of the SODELPA government."

Mr Waqavonovono said when the party's manifesto is revealed, education will be one of the pillars that the party will seek to rebuild Fiji after eight years.
