Govt alligned policies unconstitutional: FLP

Govt alligned policies unconstitutional: FLP Fiji Labour Party Leader Mahendra Chaudhry says any policy or practice based on political leanings will clearly be unconstitutional.

He made the comment after Economy Minister Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum stated that Government will improve the working conditions of teachers who aren’t politically motivated.

Chaudhry in a statement claimed there is an implied threat to teachers who may have political leanings towards parties other than FijiFirst.

“This is an absolutely silly statement. What on earth does he mean by those who aren’t politically motivated and how does he intend to carry out this policy,” he asked.

“A teacher, or anyone else for that matter, has a constitutional right to freedom of political choice. Any policy will be clearly be unconstitutional.

“He has only himself to blame for his short-sightedness if teachers were leaving to take up jobs in Australia and New Zealand."

“He has played havoc with their job security by putting them on contract employment, withheld pay increases since 2012 and thoroughly demoralised the teaching fraternity."

He said if teachers are leaving for better jobs abroad, it is because they are being forced to do so.

“The Minister’s belated election promise to improve working conditions is akin to shutting the gate after the horse has bolted,” he said.

“It is time he took a critical look at how his government’s policies over the past 14 years have caused so much harm to our professional and skilled personnel in the public service.

“It is not only the teachers and nurses who are leaving. In fact, emigration is across all professions both in the public and private sectors.

“Our skilled tradesmen and artisans have also left because of deliberate policies to suppress wages and salaries, and a lack of confidence in the country’s future,” he added.
