TWENTY-SIX candidates have been named by the Fiji Labour Party to contest the general election on September 17.

FLP president Lavenia Padarath leads a commendable crew with economist Dr Rohit Kishore, assistant general secretary Kini Marawai, former parliamentarian Narendra Padarath, Rupeni Silimaibau, Monica Raghwan and former Rakiraki policeman Sanaila Suluka.

Mr Suluka is noted to have been the first person who had applied to be a candidate.

Bua chief Ratu Filimoni Ralogaivau, Arvind Datt, Laisa Bale, lawyer Mohammed Anwar Khan, Roseline Lagi, Damodran Nair, Hari Krishna, former nationalist Josaia Waqabaca, Pratap Sen, Surendra Lal, former boxer and national football rep Solomone Catarogo, Udit Narayan, Vyas Deo Sharma, Tulsi Ram, Mohammed Tahir, Joji Koroiwaqa, Kamlesh Chandra, Paras Somaiya, Kara Bidesi, Anendra Prasad and Deo Narayan were presented to party supporters as those who would contest the elections.

FLP leader Mahendra Chaudhry, in his address, said the election would be a chaotic one as people of Fiji would have only one day to cast their votes.

The veteran politician said the people of Fiji would get a chance to elect a legitimate government, a government for the people by the people on September 17.

"This is the time the people of Fiji will get to rise against the oppression and work towards freedom," he said.

Mr Chaudhry said more candidates would be announced in July.
