GCC gazette was flawed: Ratu Tu'uakitau

Tuesday, February 19, 2008

Update: 4:04PM THE chairman of the Great Council of Chiefs Taskforce Ratu Tu'uakitau Cokanauto said the gazette regarding the new chairman was flawed.

In a press conference that just ended recently, Ratu Tu'uakitau said the taskforce team had recommended the depoliticisation of the GCC.

However he said they were surprised when the gazette came out with the interim Prime Minister Commodore Bainimarama being the new chairman and also appointing authority of the council itself.

Ratu Tu'uakitau said they would await Commodore Bainimarama's return to discuss the matter.

However a number of chiefs have come out strongly against the announcement.
