The Leader of Opposition Ro Teimumu Kepa is hoping that next week’s sitting of Parliament is not dominated by Ministerial statements.
According to Kepa, they are monologues and most times repeating tired old lines and serves no useful purpose.
The Opposition wants robust debates Monday to Thursday on critical issues and will file motions covering TELS; queues at Banks; fencing at Government House; resourcing the Police; moneylending; compensation for resource owners for film production; railway network for densely populated areas; National Health Commission and the reinstatement of the Ratu Sukuna Day.
Ro Teimumu stated the four days belong to the Fiji First Government and it is up to them to include what they want in the Order Paper.
The Opposition Leader is hoping their motions are not thrown out.
Questions to Government will be very broad ranging from issues such as the: Civil Service reform; oil spill in Suva Harbour; employment taxation; road works in key areas; Levuka Public School hostel; public parking area for Suva Market; high employment rate; pilot training academy; firefighters; special constables; peacekeepers; morgue services; waste management system; jetty upgrading; national gender policy; Koronivia Police Post; water problems; parole board; vernacular languages; prison services and electricity for rural services.
