Opposition Whip Lynda Tabuya has reiterated her party Leader Sitiveni Rabuka's call for the government to resign.
Opposition Whip Lynda Tabuya has joined her party Leader Sitiveni Rabuka in calling the government to resign, claiming the national debt is too high.
Speaking against the endorsement of the President’s address in Parliament today, Tabuya claims the government has failed Fijians.
“Economically there is a problem because the government had to cut about a billion dollars from the budget, this is a huge failure by the Minister for Economy, a 25 percent budget cut? If he was the CEO of a company, he’d be fired already!”
Tabuya says government’s austerity measures have cut across all sectors and this she says has resulted in new taxes and fees for government services, the delivery of which has been reduced and delayed.
Meanwhile, MPs are this week responding to the President’s address and submitting before the house their support or not for it.
The Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama will deliver his right of reply on Friday.
