New faces in line-up

THE proposed National Youth Party says it is ready to register next month to contest the general election later this year.

Party interim president/leader Nayagodamu Korovou said they had collected about 5000 signatures for the registration process.

Initially, he said the party had planned to team up with Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama's yet-to-be-named party.

"We invited him but he declined, so we had decided to contest the election on our own against Bainimarama's party, SODELPA, FLP, NFP and PDP," he said.

Asked if his party would form a coalition with Rear Admiral Bainimarama's party, if they won seats, to form the next government, he said: "I think so we will form a coalition. It depends who will win."

Mr Korovou said the party was banking on the support from youths, saying they had asked youth group leaders for their support.

He said while the party was thankful for what the government had done for youths, it wanted to see a reflection of what was allocated in the national budget for youths.

"We will have all new politicians in our line-up.

"There will be completely new faces and a mixture of youths and adults as our candidates."

"Our motto is One God, One People, One Nation and our symbol is a bunch of ripe bananas as in the Fiji flag. The bunch of bananas represents unity."

Mr Korovou said the party's slogan was REDUCE — "religion is free for all, education for all, democratic society, united in our effort, collaborate in our approach and entertain in our service".

"This will be the only authentic new party that will totally support our youths," he said.
