The Great Council of Chiefs (GCC) is irrelevant to Fiji and Fijians now. Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama said this during his interview on New Zealand’s Radio Tarana.

He highlighted that People’s Alliance Party leader Sitiveni Rabuka wanted to bring the GCC back for selfish political interest.

“What will the GCC bring back for us and GCC will not protect people from the climate change we are going through?” Mr Bainimarama asked.

The PM also highlighted Mr Rabuka’s actions in 1987 and its impact on Indo-Fijians. He also talked about what Mr Rabuka did the SODELPA party.

“He brought division into the iTaukei between the SODELPA supporters and PA supporters,” Mr Bainimarama.

 

Fiji’s Development Recently

Speaking about Fiji’s development in recent years, he said: “Fiji is now able to take advantage of a range of expertise across all sectors. The communities I meet and the interactions I have with the Fijian people gives me a positive story.”

“I visit communities and see what they have to say and share their concerns on how we can progress together as one nation and one people.”

“My Government is an inclusive Government with representatives from various backgrounds and ensures that our discussions are relevant to current developments.”

“The PAP supporters, the SODELPA supporters, the NFP (National Federation Party) supporters, they are all talking about bringing the iTaukei back to take leadership of this nation and you know what happened in 1987, you know what happened in 2000.”
