“The opposition can call this budget an election budget, a sugar coated budget, I love me budget, a pre-election bribe or whatever name they wish to call it but the bottom-line is that this government will continue to give such a budget to Fijian people.”

Minister for Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation, Mereseini Vuniwaqa stated this in the parliamentary debate on the 2018/2019 National Budget.

Vuniwaqa says they will continue doing this as this is what they swore to do when they took up office.

Vuniwaqa says every item in this budget is geared towards improving livelihoods, poverty alleviation and having an empowered Fijian population in the years to come.

Vuniwaqa says her Ministry received $133 million which is an increase of $19.6 million from the last National budget.
