Do not vote along religious or ethnic lines.
This was highlighted by Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama during a Devi Pooja celebration at the Mahadevi Temple in Nausori last night.
Bainimarama reminded the devotees present that some parties and candidates will encourage them to vote along these lines as we head towards the national poll.
The Prime Minister says this is wrong as it’s a backward way of thinking and risks the unity that society has built.
“As I said in the Ba Provincial Council Meeting just last month ,religion and ethnicity should never be exploited to sow division and harte .This is fundamentally against the very nature of no not only any religion ,but of our very democracy”
Bainimarama says Fijians will benefit when values based organizations work in conjunction with the government regardless of our ethnicity, background or our faith.
The Prime Minister also reiterated that such religious activity plays an important role in shaping our youth plus instilling values in the society.
