THE Fiji Labour Party says it received a good mix of applications from people wishing to contest the general election under the party banner.

Party president Lavinia Padarath said they had received applications from professionals, grassroots people, community workers, businessmen, women and youths from all sections of the society.

"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 said.

She said the party's campaign activities were proceeding well with pocket meetings being organised at various locations throughout the country.

"Work is well underway on finalising the FLP manifesto. FLP website is up and running. It forms an important arm of our election campaign as it carries candid views on current political, social and economic developments and issues of interest in the lead-up to the general elections.

"For voters, it provides a comprehensive coverage of FLP policies, history and achievements to date.

"There is also an extensive, well organised archive on party statements, comments and reports on issues affecting our people dating back to 2002."

Ms Padarath said the party's policies were founded on principles of democratic socialism.

"And the party has always been forthright and courageous in defending the rights and interests of workers, farmers and the underprivileged in society."

Applications for those wanting to join the party as candidates close on April 30.
