No church minister will be involved or allowed to be a provisional candidate for the FijiFirst party.
Party leader and Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama has made his stand clear about church minister’s not to be involved in Politics.
Bainimarama says some other political parties are engaging preachers in campaigns and also electing them as proposed candidates but this will not happen in the FijiFirst party.
“To see a Talatala talking or backing a political party, i would not want any talatala to be involved with politics in my party FijiFirst party, i want Talatala’s to be independent to do what they are supposed to do.”
The PM says Fijians have every right to support any political party but it’s inappropriate to mix religion with politics.
