Where is the equality of citizenry in this line-up?
The Fiji Sun is going all-out to attack SODELPA leader Ro Teimumu. They’re boasting of Bainimarama’s commitment to “equal citizenry” under the name “Fijian” and ignoring the fact that after 7 years of total control of everything the RFMF is as mono-ethnic as ever. Ro Teimumu has been honest enough to admit that the iTaukei community places importance on their unique identity and their rights as landowners. (What does iTaukei mean if doesn’t mean landowner?) What matters is that SODELPA has made clear their commitment to working cooperatively and constructively with parties representing other voters with different views of the name for our citizens.
