DEPUTY Prime Minister Leo Dion yesterday told parliament that all lea­ders must unite for positive developments to take place in their communities.
He said it was vital that the national and provincial government systems must go down to the local level governments and be workable for tangible developments to take place.
“We, leaders, come to parliament and do too much talking but, in actual fact, we hardly deliver services to the people,” Dion said.
He said such visions (outlined by Prime Minister Peter O’Neill in his state of the nation address) were workable and could take place only if “we, leaders in both the opposition and government, work together”.
“We are experiencing infighting among public servants for positions and not seeing actual services taking place because there is lack of
unity and vision somewhere in the hierarchy,” Dion said.
