Labour to announce candidates

THE Fiji Labour Party will announce the names of about 10 of its candidates by this weekend.

The other names will be announced in the weeks ahead.

And the party has also confirmed it will not contest all 50 parliamentary seats up for grabs in the September general election because of the work involved.

Labour leader Mahendra Chaudhry yesterday said the party would announce the names of its candidates in batches.

Mr Chaudhry said the party's line-up would include some old faces, saying "those who have remained active with the party over this difficult period will be considered".

"But as usual, there will be a mixture of candidates in the FLP line-up as we have got good response from the iTaukei, a Rotuman and others."

"SODELPA is doing the maritime islands, so let them do it.

"We are targeting Viti Levu and Vanua Levu largely."

On the FLP's support, he said: "Support is picking up and I had three meetings in Lautoka last weekend and there were more than 100 people at each meeting."

Mr Chaudhry also said the party would release its manifesto towards the end of June.
