Qarase Backs PM On Teacher Appointment
Former Prime Minister, Laisenia Qarase.

Laisenia Qarase has endorsed Prime Min­ister Voreqe Bainimarama’s statement on the appointment of teachers to Methodist schools.

The former PM said principals and headteach­ers were picked on merit.

He is chair of Lako Yani Management Private Limited and was attending Bose Ko Viti (annual conference) yesterday.

He was asked if there was something he could do in regard to appointing Methodist teachers or head teachers to Methodist schools.

A delegate said it would be different when a Methodist teacher is the principal and head teacher of a Methodist school.

Mr Qarase said: “It is a matter of policy so the Lako Yani Management can’t do anything about it because the appointments are based on merit,” Mr Qarase said.

“They pick people that are specialised in a par­ticular field and are qualified and experienced.”
