Govt will re-establish localisation: Rabuka

Prime Minister Sitiveni Rabuka says the Coalition Government will re-establish the cherished principle of localisation introduced when Fiji became independent in 1970.

This means that Fiji citizens will be appointed to Government positions whenever possible and on the basis they have the right qualifications.

Rabuka in his national address said the previous Government led by Voreqe Bainimarama and Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum had reversed localisation.

“They brought in a number of expatriates which naturally raised concerns.”

“Some of these expatriate recruits have obtained citizenship since their recruitment. We will look carefully at the circumstances involved in those cases.”
