FTUC general secretary Felix Anthony did not want to comment on future of People’s Democratic Party which he led during the 2014 polls

 

Fiji Trades Union Congress national secretary, Felix Anthony says he is yet to decide about his future in politics.

Mr Anthony was the People’s Democratic Party leader during the 2014 general election. The party failed to win a seat.

He resigned as party leader and returned to his trade union job.

Under the political parties decree, trade union officials have to resign to contest the general election.

When asked about the future of the PDP, Mr Anthony said he did not make any comments as he was no longer the party leader.

He referred all questions to PDP president, Lynda Tabuya. Ms Tabuya could not be reached to comment.

During his address at the Fiji Teachers Union conference, he said there were certain decrees that needed attention and action.

“They include the Public Order Amendment Decree and the political parties decree,” he said.

Mr Anthony did not elaborate. But he has previously criticised the political parties decree because a trade unionist cannot hold his or her trade union job and contest an election at the same time.
