Party talks of policies

Nasik Swami

THE National Federation Party says it understands the difference in opinions, as not all chiefs agree with the idea of reinstating of the Great Council of Chiefs.

Party leader Biman Prasad said if in government, the party would work through the devolution of powers and financial resources to revitalise the Fijian administration as the primary tier of governance for iTaukei land and natural and cultural resources.

"… and within 100 days of being in government, will convene a national forum for traditional high chiefs and heads of yavusa (clan) in order for our iTaukei leaders to determine themselves the future of the Fijian administration," Mr Prasad said.

He said the party would ensure that Fiji became a nation with quality cultural and social life that would be celebrated with iTaukei and Hindi languages, music, arts, folklore, emblems, theatre, traditional oratory speech and dance.

"NFP policies will be consistent with international conventions and will always be guided by the wishes of our indigenous people," Mr Prasad said.
