Party honours senior citizens

THE Social Democratic Liberal Party says senior citizens are an important part of Fiji and the party reaffirms its respect and support for them.

Party leader Ro Teimumu Kepa said the society traditionally honours them for what they had contributed to Fiji and for their wisdom and experience.

"SODELPA wants to harness these qualities to assist in the development of Fiji. To our party, old is gold," Ro Teimumu said.

She said as an expression of concern, SODELPA would act to bring justice to pensioners by an unjustified cut in their pensions.

She said the party's door was open to senior citizens.

"We will care for them just as we will care for all the people of Fiji when we form the government."

Ro Teimumu said they were also committed to increasing pensions of soldiers who survived the Malaya campaign and World War II.

"They are our forgotten heroes and should be properly looked after."
