ROPATE Sivo is hoping to be part of the upcoming elections this year as a candidate.

The Bua man had been part of politics since 1993.

First with the All National Congress, and later with the Conservative Alliance Matanitu Vanua.

Mr Sivo said he had not yet decided if there was a political party he would be joining.

"I have not decided yet. Yes, I will like to be a candidate. But parties at this point in time are not very clear about their manifesto and how they intend to take Fiji forward," said Mr Sivo.

"Right now, it's about which set of people have the capability to make the right policies and decisions that will help Fiji.

"For me, I think the way forward is to make land available for everybody.

"People should realise that our prosperity is in agriculture."

Mr Sivo has also commended the government for their efforts up until so far to have the elections.

"I think this government has a done a good job and I am pretty sure that we will surely have elections," he said.

On issues of the Electoral Commission and the electoral legislation, Mr Sivo believes that the right people have been tasked and everything will be ready in due time.
