Proposed party aims for all 50 seats

THE proposed Fiji First organisation has confirmed it will contest all 50 seats in parliament come the September election.

This was confirmed on Friday by the proposed organisation's president and current Women Minister, Dr Jiko Luveni, who told this newspaper they were waiting on their registration as a party to come through before they could release any further information.

"We will definitely have 50 candidates, that is all we can confirm at this stage," Dr Luveni said.

"When we put in the application, we're given 28 days before they actually register, so it'll be towards the end of the month or early next month."

When asked about some of their manifesto's main points, Dr Luveni said they were yet to begin planning their manifesto.

"We haven't started working on the manifesto yet, we're waiting until after the registration — we haven't met, we have to decide on the office and what not and then we can decide on the manifesto and all those things.

"But right now there's nothing at the moment until we are registered."

When asked whether the proposed organisation was facing any issue at the moment, the minister said there were "no problems at all".
