The governance of Fiji needs to take a new direction in 2018 for all our citizens to witness genuine parliamentary democracy and full restoration of fundamental human rights.
This were the sentiments made by National Federation Party Leader, Professor Biman Prasad in his New Year’s message.
Prasad says common and equal citizenry also does not guarantee job opportunities based on meritocracy, rendering common and equal citizenry meaningless.
He also adds that it does not guarantee decent and meaningful living wage.
He says there are many other challenges we face as a community and as a nation that can only be overcome through genuine unity, bipartisanship and sound and sensible leadership.
The NFP Leader adds that a New Year is naturally the culmination of the festive season and it is a time of rejoicing, reflection, making resolutions.
He adds that it is also a time to remember the sick and the infirm, the less fortunate and all those unable to celebrate New Year with the same passion and vigor as others due to various reasons, particularly the locked-out workers of Air Terminal Services.
