FOLLOWING the election, the People’s Democratic Party has gone “back to the drawing board” and is looking forward to the release of the Auditor-General’s report, among other things.

During a press conference in Suva office yesterday, former PDP leader Felix Anthony said despite being disappointed with the outcome of the election, they were looking forward to parties in power keeping to their promises.

“We in the PDP look forward to the restoration of human and trade union rights in Fiji. This was a promise that the FijiFirst party made in its manifesto when it pledged to respect human rights,” Mr Anthony said.

“Trade union rights are part of human rights. We also look forward to the tabling of the Auditor General’s report in the first sitting of Parliament as promised.

“We also look forward to the FNPF employer’s contributions to increase to 10 per cent from 1st January 2015 and much more.”

  1. To the PDP President, Ms Lynda Tabuya, Sivia Qoro and their party officials, the fact that you are not in parliament does not necessarily mean that you are out of the “game”. The fact that you were not voted into Parliament does not alter the fact that many thousands of Fiji citizens voted for you to represent them. So please think out of the box, organise yourselves and please represent the people. You can still be effective and a powerful force for radical change outside of Parliament. The vital question is how? Obviously, you will have to use all the various avenues and resources available to ensure that your views and the voters concerns are addressed. I believe that the country will be blessed because of your innovative and strategic interventions to help steer our country out of the quaqmire of greed, corruption and unprecedented abuse of power by a few.
