Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama yesterday set the tone for unity appealing to all MPs to work together for the future of young Fijians.

MPs on both sides of the House responded positively.

Striking a conciliatory note in his maiden speech on both sides of the House, Mr Bainimarama made it clear that the welfare of Fijians was paramount.

“I ask all of you in this Chamber to work with me to put our children and young people first; to support those measures that we have planned to improve the lives of our young people, broaden their horizons and open up the world of opportunity that awaits them if we join hands to give them the “leg-up” that they deserve.

Leader of the Opposition Ro Teimumu Kepa, also sounded a note of optimism about the future.

Despite her critique of Government policies, she agreed with the Government’s gesture of partnership, she said.

“I call on members of this House to work together and introduce immediate measures to that will bring the much needed relief that our people desperately need. We in Opposition look forward to working with the Government to resolving this issue as a matter of urgency.’’

From personal anecdotes and testimonies to critiques, all of yesterday’s speakers emphasised the need to put the welfare of all Fijians first.
