PDP to elect leader

THE appointment of a party leader and office bearers will top the agenda at the People's Democratic Party's annual conference next weekend.

PDP's interim general secretary Sat Narayan said nominations for the party leader and office bearers had closed.

"We have had a good response from people and anyone who wants to be an office bearer at the party's head office has to be a financial member of the party," he said.

Mr Narayan said the party's annual conference in Lautoka on May 3 would elect a party leader, president, general secretary, vice-presidents and other office bearers.

"We have a number of applications for the party leader's position. For us, all the positions are important as we prepare for the general election."

He said the party wanted the positions to be contested so that appointments were done in a democratic manner.

"Since we are heading towards democracy, we have to start from within the party to ensure that appointments of our office bearers are also done in a democratic way."

Mr Narayan also said the party was receiving applications from people interested in contesting the election under the PDP banner.

He said the party had not given any closing date for applications from aspiring candidates, adding the response from interested people was good.

"We are a very new party and people are finding out about us and finding their way towards us slowly. But we are very glad with the support for a new party like us.

"Some prominent people have shown interest in contesting the election under the PDP banner and there are some new candidates too."

Mr Narayan, however, declined to reveal the identities of the applicants for the posts.
