The mood for a new Govt was evident: Rabuka

Prime Minister Sitiveni Rabuka says the mood for a new Government was evident wherever they campaigned and approximately 58 per cent of those who went to the polls wanted a change.

In his recent national address, Rabuka said there is much discussion about the outcome of the election and opposition parties in total registered approximately 70,000 more votes than the FijiFirst Party.

“There was a whole raft of reasons for this, including big problems with infrastructure and essential services; education, increasing poverty, abuse of rights, a climate of fear and a massive national debt.”

“All these issues represented our collective lived experience.”

“Despite this litany of woes, I made sure to follow democratic tradition and thanked the former Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama for his service to the country.”

“My message for FijiFirst is that we wish to develop a positive relationship with you, as part of a broader initiative to enhance national unity. We will always be prepared to consider your ideas carefully.”

“This is what the people would expect of us.”

“In a democracy the people are in charge. Elected representatives like me, and my parliamentary colleagues, do not lord it over you. We are your servants. We are here to listen to your concerns and respect your views,” Rabuka added.
