MINISTER for Women Dr Jiko Luveni has declared her interest to contest in the 2014 general election.
She wants to be part of Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama's party.
In an interview yesterday, Dr Luveni said if given the opportunity she would declare her interest in a transparent manner and stand.
"I belong to the Prime Minister's party. The Bainimarama government's party so, of course, I am available to stand if I am considered.
"We have to work on the criteria for selection so if I do qualify under that election process, definitely that is the party that I will stand for."
Dr Luveni said the Bainimarama government's party was yet to form its structure.
"We are yet to form the party and the structures but right now whoever will want to stand even from the ministers will have to declare interest and then we will be considered under the selection process."
Dr Luveni said she had nothing to hide.
Commodore Bainimarama revealed during the fifth Certified Practising Accountants (CPA) congress at the Sheraton Fiji Resort in August that he would form a political party before September 30, 2014.
"When will I launch the new party? When I am ready because right now I am concentrating not on my own political fortunes but on the fortunes of the Fijian people," he said while addressing participants and stakeholders at the event earlier this year.
"Before September 30, 2014, I will subject myself to the nation's will under the provision of the document we unveiled yesterday (Thursday).
"I will form a political party and my party will submit itself to the collective will of the 540,000 or so Fijians who have already registered for the elections."
