MAJOR plans are in the pipeline to have water free to all homes in the country.

This was highlighted to more than 400 people who gathered for the FijiFirst Party campaign at the Davuilevu Methodist Primary School on Thursday night.

Party leader and Prime Minister Rear Admiral (Ret) Voreqe Bainimarama answered a question from a party supporter who asked if water could be made free to all homes.

"There is an exercise going now with officials of Water Authority of Fiji to calculate how much water we need daily for ladies to wash, cook and any other water required daily at home and they will come to me with this figure and that water will be given free," Mr Bainimarama said.

He said under the 2013 Constitution, people had the right to water.

The party also informed supporters it would upgrade the basic necessities of life such as water, the prices of basic food items, road and infrastructure.
