PUBLIC servants must implement projects fairly in the districts and local level governments while members of parliament must ensure they do not bring politics into funding allocation, Deputy Prime Minister Leo Dion says.
He said MPs did not enter parliament at their own will.
“They are representing the seven million people of this country and they need the respect that they deserve, whether that leader or parliamentarian is crooked, he is still a leader and it requires the common sense of any person, whether you like him or not, whether you voted him or not, he needs the respect.”
“If you are a public servant and you are playing politics with the opportunities that the people deserve of making sure that we implement those projects fairly and just for the districts, for the LLGs, for
the provinces or for this country, you have to think twice.
“My policy in ENB is very simple and I have proved over the years that those who did not vote me, under the preferential voting system, still votes me.”
