New faces for change

Nasik Swami
Friday, March 21, 2014

AS part its efforts to learn about the needs of grassroots people, members of the People's Democratic Party (PDP) have been visiting settlements and communities to talk to people about the change they want to see with an elected government.

PDP, the newest political party in the country, is formulating its manifesto and wishes to take into account all submissions made by these communities, said party's Suva branch president Shamal Singh.

"The support we have received so far is overwhelming and the response from the grassroots people is that they want change and new faces in politics," Mr Singh said.

"People have had enough of former politicians with their personal agendas and old politics of divide and rule.

"PDP is offering new faces for real change to empower the people of Fiji."

The party also said youths had taken a keen interest in them with their Suva branch consisting mainly of young people.

"The PDP constitution reserves a minimum of 30 per cent women and youth participation at all levels and decision-making process from branch level and representation in parliament.

"The youths are inclusive within PDP and not separate, therefore we do not have a separate youth wing or branch."
