If elected into power, the Social Democratic Liberal Party will revive the Great Council of Chiefs (GCC).

This is part of the Party's manifesto for the upcoming General Election.

Speaking at the launch at Suvavou village yesterday, Party Leader Viliame Gavoka said the iTaukei people need to be uplifted to standards consistent with other communities, particularly in terms of socio-economic development.

“They are sleeping giants with numerical dominance and ownership of resources… and government structure will be strengthened as platform of their socio-economic growth," Gavoka said.

The document has also highlights that a SODELPA Government will remove all decrees and acts that is discriminatory against the indigenous people.

It will also look to ratify the United Nation Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People (UNDRIP), return of controls from the Provincial Councils to the Vanua and strengthen iTaukei structures from villages to provincial administration.

Gavoka said they will revive the Rabi Island Council, restore the full powers of the Rotuma Council, formalize arrangements for other Islanders and recognize as villages all Pacific Islanders settlement.

He said an allocation of $159 million will be set aside for these policies which highlight the commitment to the indigenous people of Fiji by the Party.
 
Gavoka added they will also set up a Multi-Ethnic Affairs Ministry.
