Reddy Speaks Out
Minister for Education, Heritage and Arts Mahendra Reddy

There is no political test for any development projects or assistance provided by the Fijian Government to Fijian communities.

I fully support our Honourable Prime Minister’s philosophy and pledge to the Fijian people that the Fijian Government exists for the benefit of all Fijians, regardless of location, background or political affiliation.

The Fijian Government has a proven track record of advancing the well-being of the Fijian people solely on the basis of need, and we will continue to drive development to uplift communities in all areas without any regard to how they vote.

The comments I made at a recent talanoa session in Rakiraki were intended to be taken as light-hearted. I regret that those comments have been taken out of context in media reports.

Development projects throughout Fiji directly equate to improved outcomes and quality of life for ordinary Fijians. Updates on these projects should always be treated seriously and I apologise for causing confusion by making light of such a serious issue for the Fijian people.
