Party calls for equal status for 3 languages

Tevita Vuibau Thursday, October 11, 2012

THE United Peoples Party has made a submission for the Hindi, Fijian and English languages to have equal status as the languages of the Fiji Islands.

It recommended the three main languages be taught in schools and thereby remove the remaining elements of mistrust because of a basic lack of understanding.

This was one of the many points made by the UPP in its written submission to the Constitution Commission.

In the submission the party also called for any members of the judiciary assisting illegal governments in future to be found guilty of treason.

The UPP also called for all funds except salaries and pensions to be frozen in the event of an illegal takeover — only to be reinstated once the democratic government is either reinstated or re-elected.

“All banks holding government funds will be prohibited from dispensing any monies other then salaries and wages so long as the elected members of parliament and government are denied their right to govern,” the UPP said.

The party also voiced its support for the use of the name ‘Fijian’ to be reserved for the iTaukei community and while all other citizens of Fiji be known as ‘Fiji Islanders’.

“We further submit that the issue of a common name is a matter that can only be properly discussed and debated in an all inclusive process to be conducted by our soon to be re-established democratically elected parliament,” the UPP said.

The party submitted its support for dual citizenship but said there needed to be regulations in place to ensure there was no abuse of the privilege.

  1. All 3 languages had already been accorded equal status in the 1997 Constitution, supreme law of land where broad principles of rights, equality and justice are laid out, welei just cut and paste.
