Plan to remove anti-rights decrees

Salaseini Moceiwai
Thursday, June 26, 2014

THE People's Democratic Party (PDP) says it will ensure any decree that takes away the rights of any Fijian is removed when they get to parliament.

Speaking to villagers of Bulileka in Labasa last weekend, party leader Felix Anthony said they were committed to ensuring that such decrees were thrown out of the window.

"The PDP is committed to making sure that any decree that takes away workers, human, indigenous, women and children's rights will be removed as soon as possible," Mr Anthony promised.

"This will be done as a matter of priority because having this done is giving the people of Fiji their rights, respect and dignity as a human being.

"To me, that's the most important thing the party can do for you and this is not going to cost us any money if we do it as a government.

"It's very important for people to understand this because it's for their own benefit."

Mr Anthony said the party would also look at creating job opportunities for people.

"The first condition we are going to look at before creating jobs is political stability. There shouldn't be any more political crisis in the country.

"When there is political stability, more investments will emerge and when this happens, employment is created for everyone. We will create employment to lift people out of poverty.

"Apart from this, there will be special policies in place that will create employment and we will be talking more about this when we launch our manifestos next month."
