Tailevu Says No to Illegal Charter and GCC Changes

Tailevu province rejects NCBBF, GCC
15 MAY 2008

The Tailevu Provincial Council has rejected the National Council for Building a Better Fiji and does not want to have any part in it.

As well, it has rejected the taskforce report on the reconstituted Great Council of Chiefs.

The decision was relayed to the NCBBF media team led by Bau chief Adi Finau Tabakaucoro today, after it made a presentation to the council.

The decision was in the form of a statement signed by another Bau chief Ratu Epenisa Cakobau and a spokesman for Tailevu chiefs – Ratu Veiwili Komaitai.

Journalists who are covering the meeting are not allowed inside the Ratu Cakobau House but Fijilive was reliably informed that the decision was reached last month on Bau during a Bose Vanua (chiefs’ meeting).

The same meeting decided to reject the report of the GCC task force team.

Tailevu has decided to retain its three representatives to the GCC - Ratu Epenisa, Ratu Timoci Vesikula and Ratu Semi Seruvakula.

No immediate comments could be obtained from the NCBBF or the GCC team after the presentations.

GCC task force chairman Ratu Josateki Nawalowalo could only say that the province was expected to discuss the issue further.

The two-day Tailevu Provincial Council meeting ends tomorrow.
