Written By : FIJI SUN NEWSROOM. The Fiji Labour Party final stand on the draft People’s Charter will be determined at the National Council meeting next week.
An FLP workshop in Lautoka discussed the charter yesterday.
Party president Jokapeci Koroi said party leader Mahendra Chaudhry had consulted extensively in all three national divisions.
“Fiji today stands at a cross roads,” she said.
“We have an opportunity to correct many of our political, social and economic ills or we can remain as we have been for the last 38 years of independence, forever in abeyance as far as nation building is concerned.”
As a member of the National Council for Building a Better Fiji, Ms Koroi said the party had endeavored with much diligence and commitment to provide for a way in which the future of this nation could be looked at collectively rather than on the bases of race, ethnicity, provincialism and other segregation policies.
“As part of His Excellency’s mandate the Fiji Labour Party became part of the NCBBF process and participated in its deliberations,” said Mrs Koroi.
“The product of the NCBBF ideas and discussions is the draft People’s Charter and I must emphasise the word draft as that is all it is at this stage.”
She said the draft document would need to be widely discussed and consensus reached at all levels of deliberations before it could be accepted by the people of this nation.
“The position of the party with respect to the draft charter will be further discussed at the President’s Political Dialogue Forum to resolve all unresolved issues relating to the next general elections so that the path to parliamentary democracy will be expedient and without obstacles,” said Mrs Koroi.
