Party preference

Tukai Lagonilakeba, Nadi
Sunday, February 25, 2018

Professor Biman, Rabuka, Ro Teimumu, Lenora, Narube, Chaudhry — none of them fit into my criteria as a preferred PM right now.

My personal favourite choice would be either Felix Anthony or Dan Urai and I would personally love to see them become our country's prime minister in 20 years but not now as I do not personally want Fiji to go down the doldrums and put to waste all the good work our FijiFirst Government has achieved.

The reason being is that I believe they are such great advocates and champions of their own personal rights and freedom, workers rights, human rights, fundamental rights, democratic rights and constitutional rights when it is realistically in abundance.

It is great to have such characters in our midst but it makes me wonder what kind of country Fiji would turn into or become under their leadership.

It would also make sense for either one to become PM while the other becomes a minister for labour, industrial relations and employment — what a brilliant combo will that be.

Seriously, I will certainly contest either the FTUC president or general secretary positions and win when they have vacated it to contest our national election but mark my word, to test their advocacy and seriousness on the above rights I will certainly apply for a union permit to march once a month, 12 times a year for the four-year duration of their leadership reign.

Let's see who gives up on whose rights.

Will they ever grant me the permits to demonstrate my members fundamental, constitutional and democratic rights?

But mind you, I will still be a devoted diehard FijiFirst political party stalwart.
