Bala Moves To Build On A.S.K Work

Newly-appointed Local Government Minister Parveen Bala will be visiting all municipalities and kick-start reforms tailor-made for individual councils.

Mr Bala who has been Fiji’s longest serving mayor said Fiji towns and cities needed to have clear guidelines and boundaries.

He said that while some municipalities had been tainted with corruption in the past, it would now no longer be the case.

Filling the office previously held by Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, Mr Bala said his predecessor had started work already on various municipalities.

Mr Bala said his first role would be to ensure various special administrators were in office as soon as possible.

He said that towns and cities were the face of Fiji.

Mr Bala was aware of the mammoth task which lay ahead of him but he believed his years of experience as Ba mayor and later Ba, Tavua and Lautoka special administrator gave him an edge over others.
