What is Fiji Labour Party?
** The Fiji Labour Party was formed to defend the rights of workers, farmers and the poor. It was formally inaugurated on 6 July 1985 in Suva with the Fiji Trades Union Congress as the main inspiration and driving force behind its formation.
** It was the unions’ response to a series of anti-worker policies of the post 1982 Alliance Government culminating in the unilateral imposition of a wage freeze effective January 1985 without consultation with the Tripartite Forum.
** The new Party received enthusiastic support at the grassroots level and successfully contested the 1987 general elections in a coalition with the National Federation Party.
** It formed a government with Labour leader Dr Timoci Bavadra as Prime Minister but this was short-lived as Dr Bavadra’s government was deposed in a racist coup led by Sitiveni Rabuka, third ranking colonel in the Fiji Military Forces a month after taking office.
