THE Fiji Labour Party says it has received a good mix of applications from people of different professional and personal backgrounds.

And with the party saying that it intends to contest all 50 parliamentary seats in the September election, the applications have been deemed "encouraging" by party president Lavinia Padarath.

"So far FLP has received a good mix of applications from professionals as well as grassroots people, community workers, businessmen, women and youth from all sections of society," she said in a statement yesterday.

"FLP has announced that it intends to contest all 50 parliamentary seats and is encouraging applications from women and youth, for whom special allocations are being made within the set up."

Ms Padarath stressed applications closed on April 30.
