PM criticises NFP proposal to cut down number of overseas trips

FijiFirst Leader Voreqe Bainimarama has criticised the National Federation Party’s proposal to cut down the number of overseas trips for the Prime Minister and Ministers for meetings should they come into power after the general election.
Speaking at the FijiFirst Family Fun Day in Labasa yesterday, Bainimarama says the reason they’re coming up with this is because they do not like the fact that he is the COP 23 President and no one in the party will ever come close to achieving that position.
Bainimarama says for the first time ever, Fiji was elected as President of the United Nations General Assembly, something previous governments never achieved.
He also noted that he had even chaired the biggest convention ever, the G77 Plus China meeting.
Bainimarama also Co-chaired the first ever Oceans Conference in which the RFMF Band participated and currently holds Presidency of the COP23 in which the Fiji Police Band participated.
About three weeks ago, Fiji was nominated into the UN Human Rights Committee, a feat the Prime Minister says has never been achieved by any of his predecessors.
He told supporters that the NFP is looking to take away all these posts and it is very childish of them to do so.
