Focus on the poorest

Felix Chaudhary
Thursday, August 14, 2014

THE People's Democratic Party says it will not make empty promises to the people on how it will tackle economic issues because nobody, apart from the current administration, is aware of the state of Fiji's finances.

Party leader Felix Anthony said the government's decision to withhold the Auditor -General's Report, information that was a basic right for every citizen of the country, was a huge drawback for every political party contesting the elections.

"We were very careful not to make empty promises without doing our sums," he said.

"We are not making any monetary promises in our manifesto other than the provisions we have put forward for the poorest in society.

"By holding onto the Auditor-General's Report, no political party is in a position to make realistic or sustainable policies."

Mr Anthony said the policies the PDP put in place for the poor would ensure that those who were in hand-to-mouth situations would receive immediate assistance.

Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum had stated that the Auditor-General's Report would be tabled once parliament convened after the September polls.
