No word on GCC report from regime - Friday, January 25, 2008

THE taskforce on the Great Council of Chiefs has not heard anything from the interim Government since their report was tabled in Cabinet last year says taskforce chairman Ratu Tu'uakitau Cokanauto.

Ratu Tu'uakitau said the team was still waiting for a feed back from the interim government.

"Everything seems to be on silence mode," saud Ratu Tu'uakitau.

"The last I heard was that the report required another Cabinet paper but since there has been a change to ministerial appointments nothing has been forthcoming."

Ratu Tu'uakitau said they would await word form the interim Government to determine their next course of action.

The report recommends that the President select the 52-member council and that those who are bankrupt and have criminal records be excluded.

It recommends that chiefs decide between being politicians or members of the GCC.

The team travelled throughout the 14 provinces and spoke to representatives of the Rotuma Council about the review of the GCC and compiled the report.
