Transition to democracy

Ana Madigibuli
Friday, August 29, 2014

FIJI United Freedom Party believes more can be done to lift the level of service and developments in the country and reduce the burdens faced by Fijians.

Party co-leader Korovou Nayagodamu said the party looked at the vanua and the church as tools that can help the government reach its goals in developments, economic growth, security, peace and prosperity.

"We are going from a transition from a military government and towards a democratically elected government for this reason, we believe that there should be a budget allocation in form of grants to all religious denominations," Mr Nayagodamu said.

"We believe in increasing youth budget to about $170million every year for creation of sustainable small business where they can be employed."

He said the party believed all peacekeepers who had served missions overseas should be compensated for the good work they were doing.

Mr Nayagodamu said the party manifesto looked at having 14 ministers for each province and in reducing ministers and permanent secretary pay by 50 per cent.
