Proposed organisation to campaign after registration

THE proposed Fiji First political organisation will start its campaign once the party is registered with the Elections Office.

The proposed association's newly-appointed president and Minister for Women Doctor Jiko Luveni said in Savusavu yesterday they were yet to launch the party and they had been given about a month to do so.

"Right now, we have only lodged our application to be registered and we are working on registering our party," she said.

"Once the whole process of registration is completed and when our application is accepted, we will then plan out our campaign nationwide.

"At the moment, we are just waiting to be registered before we move on with our campaign."

Meanwhile, Dr Luveni said she would surely apply to stand as a candidate for the proposed party.

"I have started a lot of reforms, especially with my ministry and I would like to continue pursuing more changes for the benefit of ordinary Fijians.

"Hopefully, people will now be politically matured and not to be swayed by mere talks on the streets.

"They need to see those people who have progressively worked and made things happen in this country and cast their votes for these people.

"I believe this proposed party has these kinds of people who have the same vision of improving the livelihoods of all Fijians."
