Archbishop Chong says priesthood and party politics do not mix

Catholic priests are not allowed to get involved in party politics, which means they cannot support a party, stand for a party or promote or tell the congregation about which particular party they should support.

According to Archbishop Peter Chong, the head of the Catholic Church in Fiji, this is a non-negotiable principle and forms the basis of the church’s position on the issue of the separation of religion and the state.
