THE People's Democratic Party is calling for applications from those interested in contesting the general election under its banner.

PDP's interim general secretary Sat Narayan said the party would advertise for expressions of interest in the newspaper tomorrow.

"We are looking at contesting all 50 seats in the election," he said when asked how many seats the party would contest.

Mr Narayan said the party's annual conference would be held in Lautoka on May 3 and office bearers would be elected then.

He said a date would also be set for the party's launch, which was expected to be within one month after the conference.

"We will also launch our manifesto. Work on the party's manifesto is going on well and we already have a draft.

"Our preparation for the election is good and we are going to the ground and coming back with ideas from the people."

Mr Narayan said the PDP manifesto would be people- focused, adding that the party was working on trying to reach out to people.

"We have a strategy and our youth groups are going house to house to introduce the party as we are quite new," he said.
