Party policies on land

Nasik Swami
Saturday, July 12, 2014

WITH the looming general election, the Citizens Constitutional Forum is calling on all political parties to clearly outline their policies on land.

According to CCF, political parties and commentators have expressed concerns about the loss of iTaukei control over land in the 2013 Constitution and various decrees.

"Given the history of land issues, this has had the effect of instilling fear and creating uncertainty amongst both landowners and tenants," the CCF claims.

The organisation said it was of the view that any discussion involving land must be free of ethnic politics.
