People’s Democratic Party leader Felix Anthony says being a unionist is a part of who he is.
Speaking on FBC TV’s talk back show – 4 The Record, Anthony admits he would never have left the Fiji Trade Union Congress if not for the Political Parties Registration Decree.
“I had no desire to leave the Trade Union movement and let me just make one thing very clear that this government can impose any Decree that can get me out of the Union but they can’t impose any Decree’s that can get the Union out of me. I am going to be a Union man, I have been a Union man all my life and I am going to be a Union man until I die.”
Under the Political Parties Registration Decree, an individual can’t stand for elections if he or she is an office bearer in a union movement.
The PDP will release it’s manifesto next month and also name it’s candidates.
