Choose wisely

Mere Naleba
Friday, August 08, 2014

FIJIFIRST party president Dr Jiko Luveni has urged every Fijian to choose wisely in the upcoming election in order to prevent more political upheavals.

Addressing Qauia residents in Lami last Thursday, Dr Luveni said people should understand what democracy meant and what their roles were in a democratic government.

Speaking in the iTaukei language, she said Fiji had experienced four coups that all happened straight after an election of a democratic government.

She said if people supported the leadership of a democratic government, then they should be happy about those whom they had elected into government.

Dr Luveni was present at the Qauia Methodist Hall with Mere Vuniwaqa who is also a party candidate.

She said the FijiFirst party was committed to putting an end to the coup culture and also to strengthen areas where previous government had not been able to address.

She said the party promoted uniting the different races that have called Fiji home for several years.

Dr Luveni said every Fijian should participate in the September 17 election because this would give them the opportunity to elect the political party they wanted to lead them into the future.
