Focus on housing

ONE of the newest political parties in the country has launched its manifesto for the general election.

The Fiji United Freedom Party conducted the launch at Nawau Village in Nadi on Wednesday in the presence of villagers and other people.

FUFP co-leader Nayagodamu Korovou said their focus was on playing a supporting role with the government that would be formed to push for specific areas needing attention and implementation.

"The theme and focus of FUFP is to provide a decent home for every single family and involve business houses to initiate a housing program with tax incentives," he said.

Mr Korovou said the party would also carry out a nationwide campaign on housing that would attract and urge international communities for assistance.

In its manifesto, the party has promised to provide scholarships to all students whose parents earn less than $16,000 a year.

The party said it would also increase the wages of civil servants if it gets into Parliament, insure farms and encourage renewable energy.

Also, the party said it would strengthen domestic violence laws, rape laws and child care laws apart from ensuring safe houses for women victims of domestic violence and discrimination.

Mr Korovou said the party would combine the police with military personnel for policing work and involve the military in community projects.
