Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama has stated in Sydney that Fiji will be holding its second general elections under the Fijian Constitution and like in 2014 that election will be free and fair, and will be conducted in a transparent manner.
While speaking at the Fiji Day celebration, Bainimarama says every vote will matter equally, every voice will be heard and the outcome will reflect the genuine will of the Fijian people.
The Prime Minister states that while there are diaspora communities all around the world, people separated and spread out across great distances, the Fijian diaspora community is unlike any other.
He says that the love they hold for Fiji and for fellow Fijians, is so powerful.
Bainimarama told the former Fiji residents in Sydney that it makes him proud to lead a nation that instils such a level of loyalty and patriotism in its citizens and people are filled with such care and compassion for their countrymen and women.
Bainimarama says that it is a sad reality, that for years our national character was tarnished by deep divides along ethnic and religious lines in our society.
