THE Fiji Labour Party will field 50 candidates for the September 2014 General Election.

This was confirmed by party's assistant general secretary Kini Marawai.

Mr Marawai said the party had a good line-up of candidates.

"As I told you, the candidates will be a combination of experienced, newcomers and youths," he said.

Mr Marawai said he anticipated the candidate naming would be done together with the launch of their campaign headquarters tomorrow at Fletcher Rd in Vatuwaqa, Suva.

He said the candidates would be announced in batches.

The party will also launch its election theme song titled Time to be free at the ceremony.

Party president Lavinia Padarath and leader Mahendra Chaudhry will also speak on the challenges facing the nation as Fiji prepares to go to the polls in September.
