YOUTH and Sports Minister Commander Viliame Naupoto says he will certainly apply for the Prime Minister Rear Admiral Voreqe Bainimarama's proposed Fiji First organisation in preparation for the September 17 election.

Cdr Naupoto highlighted this after opening the Korean Culture and Language Program at the Fiji Museum in Suva yesterday.

"I understand that there is a process in applying and I might not be selected but I will still apply when the time comes," Cdr Naupoto said.

He said the Ministry of Youth would assist where needed for the general election preparations.

"We will help according to the program that the Elections Office will put in place, and the advantage we have in the ministry is we have strong connections with youth clubs around the country and so we can easily organise them," Cdr Naupoto said.

"If we are asked to help in that regard, we certainly will come forward to assist."

Cdr Naupoto said the ministry encouraged youths to register to vote and better understand the privileges that came with their right to vote.
