ASPIRING politician Jone Usamate says the proposed Fiji First Party is having an impact on the lives of ordinary Fijians and that is the reason he has declared his interest to join the proposed political organisation.

Mr Usamate, who is also the Minister for Labour, said the organisation was trying to change things that led to the country's problems in the past.

"They are trying to put the country together so that everybody feels like being part of one nation," he said.

"There are various focus of the party and there is something that we need to do to make sure that we don't get back to the problems that we had in the past," said Mr Usamate.
