What are the Five main issues you will be highlighting for this General Election? The freedom, equality and dignity of all Christian faiths and other religious groups. We stand against the decision of the FijiFirst Government to make Fiji a secular state. Christianity came to Fiji when the Fijians were heathens. It changed forever the nature of indigenous society.

The people were converted and saw the light of Jesus Christ.

Women and Youth: The recognition of Women and Youth as pivotal to building an equitable and prosperous Fiji

Review Foreign Affairs policies on our bilateral and multilateral arrangements and strengthen our regional arrangements like with Pacific Island Forum. For example, review the list for “no visa or stamp on arrival visa arrangements” like with China and also review our established Fiji Missions with a view of closing some and opening new ones like in Jerusalem In Israel.

Education: Equal opportunity for tertiary education. The reinstatement of the Fijian Af­fairs and Multiethnic Affairs scholarship and removal of Tertiary Loans Scheme.

Media: The right and freedom of Mass-Media to keep those in Government, Legislative and Judiciary to be fully accountable to the ordinary people.
