THE Prime Minister says he'll soon announce the formation of his political party to contest the election.

Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama told the people of Dreketi and Seaqaqa his government would stand on its record of delivering basic services.

"Our vision is to build on the progress that we have made and the stability we have created to attract new investment to Fiji," he said.

"This will ensure our young people have new and sustainable jobs.

"We dream of making this country the Singapore of the Pacific, vibrant, brimming with opportunity and a byword for quality.

"I will never accept that someone living in Dreketi deserves fewer services just because they live in an isolated part of the country."

He said there should be equal access to all essential services for everyone..

"It's an ambitious goal but I'm determined to achieve it by putting more money in basic infrastructure for the benefit of ordinary people and communities."
