A Rewa chief has called for representatives of the ‘vanua’ to be included in the proposed political forum.
Ro Filipe Tuisawau said the inclusion of a few selected chiefs and advisers from the provinces “will also ensure that whatever the outcome of the Forum, whether a political settlement or a roadmap to normality for Fiji, will be broadly acceptable to all”.
The forum under the auspicious of the United Nations and the Commonwealth Secretariat will include political leaders.
Tuisawau explains that the political parties do not necessarily represent the indigenous Fijian people.
“It is very important to include all stakeholders in this forum,” he said.
Tuisawau commended the efforts by the interim Government in initiating the political forum and dialogue between the PM and the ousted PM Laisenia
It would be interesting how the Pig reacts to that given he has already told Vanua Reps to go and drink homebrew under a mango tree.
