Solid win for Kepa, Prasad and team

December 3, 2014

Prasad: this round to him

Good victory: the attempts by Fiji First to have its finger in the pie again have been foiled by
the Opposition standing its ground.

The Public Accounts Committee can now go ahead and do its job – dig into the Auditor’s Report 2007 to 2013 with gusto – with National Federation Party MP, Biman Prasad, staying on as chair.

Auditor’s report: Time for open information.

Prasad’s nomination was challenged by three Fiji First MPs but they’ve been unable to shake him, thanks to the Opposition sticking together, with Aseri Radrodro, backing the decision instead of getting a big head and fighting the hierarchy.

As Biman Prasad himself has said, there is no conflict of interest: the committee hasn’t even started work and his comments were about process, not specific outcomes.

The committee meets properly on December 15 with Opposition leader Ro Teimumu Kepa urging everyone to work diligently and to remember the people will be watching.
