THE People's Democratic Party wants candidates who have democratic socialist principles and the ability to foster Fiji's social, economic and political development.
Calling for expressions of interest from people wishing to contest the general election under the party's banner, PDP interim general secretary Sat Narayan said the party believed in the rule of law.
"The party is committed to constitutional government, parliamentary democracy, and the rule of law," Mr Narayan said.
He said the mission of the party was to build strong democratic institutions and values founded on respect for a full range of social economic, civil and political human rights, including workers rights within a broader policy framework of sustainable development.
"The party pledges to unite the people of Fiji and to heal the wounds of the past through a process of reconciliation and peace."
