Narube: Party ruled by ‘dictators’

There are hardly any disagreements within the FijiFirst party because it clearly indicates they are being ruled by “dictators”, says Unity Fiji party leader Savenaca Narube.
He was responding to Attorney-General and party general secretary Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum’s statement that opposition political parties would start fighting for ministerial positions and who gets the most Facebook likes if they got into government, in reference to the difference of opinion on Energy Fiji Ltd by The People’s Alliance leader Sitiveni Rabuka and deputy leader Lynda Tabuya during a news conference in Suva.
“In any true democratic political party, there will be disagreements,” the former Reserve Bank of Fiji governor said.
“There will be different opinions and members won’t fear speaking out.
“But what about their party, has there ever been any disagreement or are they dictated.”
Mr Narube said a person like Mr Sayed-Khaiyum should not be criticising other political parties.
“Stop throwing stones when you are living inside a glass house.
“People are being expelled from the FijiFirst party and some have abandoned them, if that is not disagreement, then we need to know what is it.
“When you point your finger at another political party, four fingers are pointing back at you.
“Just look at your party first.”
