Fiji Labour Party (FLP) can­di­date Aman Ravin­dra-Singh says it is the job of every govern­ment to look af­ter its peo­ple. He made the comment on Fri­day dur­ing a party cam­paign meet­ing at Nadawa, Nas­inu.

“… peo­ple say that this is a good Govern­ment,” Mr Ravin­dra-Singh said.

“Peo­ple praise this Govern­ment that they are mak­ing roads, but it is the job of the Govern­ment. We need to live with re­spect and dig­nity and not live like slaves in our coun­try. “We are ask­ing you to vote for Labour. We have what it takes.” He said they would en­sure that peo­ple were safe. Mr Ravin­dra-Singh was asked about FLP’s elec­tion record, given that in the 2014 Gen­eral Elec­tion it could not meet the five per cent thresh­old to have can­di­dates elected to Par­lia­ment.

“It was the worst mo­ment of the party. We are build­ing Labour brick by brick. There is also some­thing called mi­nor­ity Govern­ment.” Mr Ravin­dra-Singh said that there was pos­si­bil­ity of coali­tion. “We will stop the coup cul­ture in Fiji. Labour party is al­ways about grass­roots peo­ple. We want an ac­count­able and trans­par­ent Govern­ment,” he said.
