Caretaker mode

Avinesh Gopal
Friday, September 05, 2014

THE Fiji Labour Party says the government should be in caretaker mode now. "It should merely see the day-to-day operations of the government and not implement any new policy measures which could be interpreted as vote-buying," said FLP leader Mahendra Chaudhry.

He said the government had undertaken projects that could only be interpreted as vote-buying.

Chaudhry also said the Electoral Commission should investigate certain activities in the lead-up to September 17 and take appropriate action under Section 114 of the Electoral Decree.

"There have been unheard of bonus payments to workers in statutory authorities.

"Workers at Ports Authority, Fiji Electricity Authority and Tropik Woods were handed out bonus payments last week.

"Lautoka City Council workers received a pay increase recently - the first in four years - and we are now informed that Fiji Sugar Corporation staff will be getting a bonus payment."
