Reveal financial status

Felix Chaudhary
Monday, August 11, 2014

THE People's Democratic Party says the government has to reveal the real state of national finances before the election to allow voters to make an informed decision when they cast their vote on September 17.

Party leader Felix Anthony said if the government was confident that the country had done well economically over the past seven years then it should also have the confidence to publish the auditor-general's report prior to the September polls.

"The government is on record asking the people of Fiji to judge them on their track record," he said.

"While the developments they have brought are well and good, the true picture of where we are in terms of our debt and expenditure against earnings and revenue will only be made possible once the auditor-general's report is open to public scrutiny.

"The Attorney-General, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, who is also the Elections Minister and general secretary of the FijiFirst party recently commented on FBC's Aaina show that the report would be tabled in parliament.

"This is not fair to the people of Fiji.

"People need to see it before the election so they can make an informed decision before they vote.

"If it's as good as they say it is, then why have they held on to it for the past seven years and why are they unable to publish it before we go to the elections in September?"
