THE FijiFirst party is focused on ensuring its campaign is set-up through a transparent process, says party secretary Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.

While in Lautoka, Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said the party had been completing the groundwork before the official campaigning process began when party leader Rear Admiral (Ret) Voreqe Bainimarama returns from overseas.

"The party will be officially launched on his return and work has already started," he said.

"We have started setting up and identifying branch premises. We already have people doing some work on the ground.

"There will be some advertisements coming out this week for people who are interested in being candidates and for volunteers.

"We have set up bank accounts where people can donate money and we already have our Tax Identification Number."

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said the party was continuing work in ensuring that all the processes, systems and the laws were being adhered to.

"We got a very transparent process. For example, we will ensure that the party machinery is accountable like we won't have people running around the country with receipt books that is bought from a stationery shop.

"We have a customised receipt book done for people who are donating money for the party so that they know how much exactly is going to the party.

"Our motto is to ensure that we are transparent," said Mr Sayed-Khaiyum who is also the Attorney-General and Minister Responsible for Elections.
