Parties start wrong with condemnation Voters want to hear real issues, real result delivered to help improve the livelihoods of communities in Fiji.
Voters want to hear real issues, real result delivered to help improve the livelihoods of communities in Fiji.
Political campaign from the political parties vying to lead the nation after the September elections has started. And a report from Nanuku settlement said a political party started their campaign with the politics of condemnation.
The party condemned all the good works carried out by the Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama-led Government. The question that we need to ask is – Do voters need to hear of the condemnations?
Will they win the support of the people through their condemnation?
Surely the people will make their own choice without being influenced on where to lend their support.
In the past, we have seen governments practising the politics of exclusiveness and this had contributed to furhter widen gap between the haves and have nots. Should we continue this way?
Is politics of exclusiveness good for the nation?
With the way things are going now, some political parties will promote The Animal Farm rule that says – “All animals are equal but some are more equal than others.” Do you want to be excluded from some government policies? The Bainimarama Government wants to build a better Fiji for all.
This can only be achieved through its inclusive policies and it is happening. This will be debated by government critics. We need to ask these critics to come up with a new policy that will offer better services for them and far much better than what they are experiencing now.
The new way forward now for Fijians is to move forward together at the same pace and no one should be excluded. We all agree that the government large scale developments in the rural have positively contributed to the enhancement of the quality of life and in expanding trade and other economic activities grass roots level.
An economist said – “A government that comes into power should not blindly follow an exclusive economic growth model but move towards a more inclusive growth model. The decision makers should not be blinded by the glitter of newly built parks and recreation facilities but create avenues for all in the country to be a part and parcel of it.”
