Rabuka for poll

Thursday, March 06, 2014

FORMER Prime Minister Major General Sitiveni Rabuka has confirmed he will contest the 2014 general election.

In an interview yesterday, Maj-Gen Rabuka said he was preparing on his own and was not joining any political party at this stage.

"Yes, I will contest the general election in September. I don't want to reveal my plan but I am doing my own groundwork, setting up my own locality network and trying to consolidate my plans," he said.

Maj-Gen Rabuka said he still had a lot to offer to the people of Fiji.

He said they had "unfinished business" about uniting the people of Fiji so that they had a common pride in the nation.

Maj-Gen Rabuka said Fiji, right now, was not doing well.

He said Fiji was stagnant and blood was being drained from its citizens by the use of natural and financial resources.

He added he was looking forward to the election and praying it would be fair.
