Proposed party wants peace

THE proposed National Youth Party wants to create a peaceful Fiji for all Fijians.

Its interim leader Nayagodamu Korovou said attacks by political parties against each other would create hatred as the election date draws closer.

As such, he said: "We want to show the voters that Fiji needs to be united in our effort for all to really become Fijians and everyone to really belong to this lovely island we call our home."

"We believe that all the registered political parties — after the proposed Fiji First and proposed NYP are fully registered — should find a time where they can all come together, forgetting their differences and in the spirit of forgiveness, brainstorm what is best for Fiji right now," he said.

"The biggest question we are asking is that will the election solve our problem or will democracy take away the hate that has been created from past experiences.

"We need to see what is best for Fiji and all Fijians and should not be thinking about our own personal agenda and differences."

He said they acquired the number of signatures required for registration, which would be done on May 23.
