Maturity and vision 

Feng Liu,  Suva

After the release of the 2018-2019 National Budget, I felt a pleasant surprise among the Fijians.

After feeling the care of the FijiFirst Government, I also saw its maturity and vision in the concept of good governance.

The family is the smallest unit of the country.

If the family is happy and harmonious, then the country will be stable, united and prosperous.

Everyone has a common understanding and feeling about this.

Based on this point of view, the ruling Government, along with its continuous development of a prosperous Fijian economy, will subsequently raise people’s living standards.

The care for each Fijian family is the responsibility of the Government and is a measure of the performance of any government.

Our current Government has promoted the continuous development of the national economy for nine consecutive years.

The country’s infrastructure construction, agriculture, tourism, and other fields have made encouraging progress and development.

It is very timely to raise the people’s living standards and give special care to the Fijian families.

The ultimate goal of any government is to promote national development and progress, to improve the living standards of the people, to make families happy and harmonious and to gradually improve the national welfare as the country’s wealth continues to increase.

The ruling party was elected by the people in 2014.

They took the people’s trust and commission to preside over the Government’s work.

What the people want to see is that their Government cares about them and lets them gradually live a happy life. Our country is now prosperous and strong.

Free gifts

Sukha Singh,  Labasa

We all should be thankful for all the free gifts offered in the budget.

I would personally would like to thank the A-G and the PM for this beautiful budget.

Choose fruits

Lydia Kondaiya,  Suva

One of the most pleasing aspects of the budget is the removal of import duty on fruits.

Cheaper imported fruits means a healthy lifestyle and a tool to fight NCDs.

Eating plenty of fruits helps reduce the risk of many diseases, including heart disease, high blood pressure and some cancers.

To eat is a necessity, but to eat intelligently is an art.

One Fiji Constituency   

Tukai Lagonilakeba,  Nadi

Thank you to the FijiFirst Party Government for introducing the One Fiji Constituency where any election candidate must be ready to serve any Fijian from anywhere irrespective of who they are.

That is the way it should be all the time, with no excuse or passing the buck for that matter.

Candidates who eventually make it to Parliament must be willing, receptive, determined and ready to direct and guide Fijians in finding a solution.

SODELPA and the other opposition parties are still advocates of the old constituency voting system, which is discriminatory and does not serve the Fijian people.

In today’s amended voting system any eligible registered Fijian voter can vote for any candidate of their choice from anywhere in Fiji, irrespective of their political affiliation and candidacy.

That is what we term, Fiji and Fijians First, it is all about service delivery and good customer service.

This again is where the current FijiFirst party government is kilometres apart from other political parties.

It is always our government’s willingness to solve there and then any issue from members of the public which is palatable and likeable with the majority of Fijians.

That is the trick and that is exactly where the majority votes with the mandate from all Fijian eligible voters will definitely go to.

The Fijian public are fed up and have learnt from past governments post-Independence, but we are appreciative of being cared for by the Voreqe Bainimarama FijiFirst Party Government.

Nothing will change that and not even the many lies from those desperate opposition critics who are always resorting to dirty politics.

They just do not have the heart and respect to serve honestly the welfare of all Fijians and at the same time unite them genuinely.
