Provinces told to support charter

Provinces told to support charter


The formulating of the people’s charter for change, peace and prosperity is expected to be completed soon.
National Council of Building a Better Fiji member Reverend Akuila Yabaki said they still needed the support of the people whose provinces that rejected the proposed people’s charter.

Mr Yabaki said the work of the charter would continue but called on the provinces that had closed their doors on the charter to understand the work they were trying to do in moving the country forward. “As far as we know the leaders are shutting out the work of the charter and the people at grass root level are not being given a chance to understand what we are trying to do,” he said.

“From what we understand many people want the charter process to continue but it is their leaders that prevent them from expressing their views.” He said the charter did not emphasise Fjian or Indian leadership but good leadership.

“Look at what leaders in the past have achieved,” said Mr Yabaki.

“They haven’t achieved much. There are still some places in Fiji that are still without sufficient water supply and electricity.
