By TEVITA VUIBAU

Update: 4:39PM PRIME minister Commodore Bainimarama is calling for support for his political party as he prepares to relinquish the leadership of the military in two weeks.

He made the call as he opened Vatuwaqa Primary's new school hall and grounds - constructed by army engineers.

"I very much like the blue colour of your uniforms, maybe I'll use it as the colour for my new party and you should ask you your parents to vote me," Commodore Bainimarama told the students.

"But I'm asking everyone to support me in the elections so that I continue to work to make Fiji a better place."
