THE People's Democratic Party will have a land policy that is fair to landowners and tenants if it wins the general election and forms the new government.
"The Land Use Decree has been very insensitive and it has basically taken away the rights of landowners," said PDP leader Felix Anthony.
"We want to see a land policy in place that is fair to landowners and tenants.
"This has to be done through dialogue between the stakeholders. It can't be imposed. This kind of policy we have right now is not sustainable. It will create more social unrest and distrust between the landowners and tenants."
Mr Anthony also said the PDP would reinstate the disbanded Great Council of Chiefs if it came into power after September 17. "That's what people want because chiefs play an important role in tradition and culture. We need the chiefs.
"The PDP government is going to work closely with the GCC. We want to see the GCC playing a greater role in the economic wellbeing of their people."
After spending a week in Suva holding meetings, the PDP leader will be in the Northern Division this weekend then travels to Ovalau to meet party supporters there.
